I frequently find I’m unable to get a short 9x9 or 13x13 game with automatch while custom game requests come up in game finder. So I cancel my automatch and accept the custom game. Or I just make a custom game request for a blitz game and someone will quickly accept it.
Why are those are automatch games so separate (and invisible) from custom games? I would so so want “automatch” to appear in the custom game request list for others to accept. Except that whenever someone else makes a matching (as per automatch rules) game request, I would like OGS to automatically accept that game request and automatically cancel my own pending (automatch) game request.
Then I could just always select automatch and consistently get games automatically without having to propose, scan, cancel and generally mess about with custom games when I just want to play with whoever.
