Hello, sorry to hear you are disappointed, and undeniably, there are still many areas to improve.
Having a weaker bot is one of them, and although we are focused on human play and always have been (after all you can play a bot locally or on your phone, no need for a website for that) I too would like to see one one day but the todo list is long and as said, humans have always been a priority for us, so it keeps getting adjourned.
As far as the English speaking goes, it certainly differs depending on which timezone you are playing from, but other than that, we really do have a lot of English speaking players. Not everyone is extra chatty, and pardon my little “stalking trip”, but from what I have seen in your games, usually when you start chatting, you also seem to be getting a response, if neither of you tries chatting, well then you are both playing silently, but that can also be very nice
And that sort of takes me to my last point - help rarely comes to those who do not ask for it. Be it fear of bothering someone, or human nature not to interfere too much, we cannot spam every new player with offers… I am always happy to play a teaching game - lately - given busier schedule, I prefer correspondence (just send me a challenge if you would like),if you would appreciate live game, then just add me as a friend and try asking for one when you see me online.
Bottom line, we are happy to help, just let us know, what you would like
And thanks everyone for the kind words, it is very appreciated.
