Correspondence Game

Why am I always assigned white for correspondence games? Thank you.

What settings are you using to create games? Maybe you have inadvertently selected to always be White?

Where can I find this setting for Black or White? I only see settings for handicap, time control, and rule. Thank you.

You are referring to the automatch settings, I think. The “stronger” player is assigned White in the automatch, I believe, Since your “provisional” rank is 6k, and all your opponents are theoretically weaker, you are being assigned to White. I recommend creating a custom challenge, where you can choose your color.

Or just wait a few games and eventually as the server becomes more confident of your rank you’ll get more black games

Of course, even under random, there is a small chance that you could get 5 games in a row as white.
