It just went up with the latest server upgrade a few minutes ago:

So far I haven't been able to get paired yet, since the pool's been up a grand total of ten minutes. Hopefully it'll be instantaneous soon :)

Why is there a button labeled "custom"? The concept of "custom" is surely the very antithesis of "automatch", yes?

EDIT: Also, what's up with "~10s per move" and "~30s per move"? Why not actually *specify* the time controls so that actual go players can use the feature?

Nope. Have you actually clicked it? This way you can set up a challenge to your taste and then you’ll be matched with ppl who have set up similar challenges.

I’d recommend asking on the OGS forum since you can’t be sure the developers read everything here in a timely manner.

https://forums.online-go.com/t/automatc ... rver/12089 (this is the thread from the time when automatch was in beta test but it’s still active)

I tried out the automatch, today. I was immediately matched to an opponent who was offline. After waiting for about five minutes, I had to cancel the game at which point the server told me "Black **wins** by cancellation." That's a bit of a poor show if you ask me.

I tried again and never got another match.

To be entirely fair to OGS, after a very, very long wait, I did eventually get a game with an opponent who was not offline. It was a very good game, too. I suppose that the feature is useful if you have time to wait AND you aren't doing anything you can interrupt when the game does, indeed, begin.

So far I've had a good experience with it. I'm matched fairly quickly and evenly.... But I also think there are a lot more DDKs than SDKs and dan level players, so I'm in the largest match pool.

I imagine it might be a little harder to get a match the higher level you are ...
