    5|2
    10|0(Rarely)
    10|10(Rarely)
    15|10
    25|10
    25|30
    30|30(Rarely)
    45|30(Almost never)

    All preset time values are basically pools. More you have smaller they get and harder to get a game.  And there are  custom time controls, try them if you want to know how hard it is get a game eith those.

    Alreasy now 3/2 is pretty useless as it competes with 5/0 and it cannot gain popularity other than eating market share from 5 min

    25/10 was a rapid time used in real life recent years, even 15/10 has become more played recently. 25/10 would be between rapid and slow games.
