When I log into live chess, I am greeted by a menu allowing me to advertise a certain time control and rating range. Great! I click on Start Game, wait a few seconds, and bingo! Still great.
After the game, I see a cool button asking me to play a New 5 Min game. Excellent! One click and a few seconds later, I am playing again. I am a happy member, until I see the opponent's rating: 800 points below mine!
How did that happen? I thought I had selected a rating range just to avoid this scenario. The system remembers my game settings each time I log in, so why can't it use these settings when I seek another game?
I have since found out that I can click on the small New Game tab on the upper right, which brings me back to the same window I see each time I log in. But why do we need two clicks for something so simple?
