Nobody Playing This Week

Sort:
Drewyknot

I've been playing everyday at chess.com for a few years now and never had to wait long for unrated games. This past week NO ONE is playing. I can wait for 5min and no takers. Switch time and same thing. 3min, 5min and 10 min...nobody's around. Morning, noon, and night. Anyone else experiencing this?

How are you connecting to the site?

Drewyknot

I guess so. I've done nothing different this week.

I have the same issue with puzzle battle. If I use the app I have no luck finding an opponent but using the website on my phone I get an opponent pretty quickly.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling? 

Drewyknot

No, I play on my computer...is there something to install/uninstall on my computer?

I think it's getting worse. I just tried for 20min to play a game. After some waiting at 5min, tried 10min, then 3min, then after 5min trying I finally was matched up with 250 player who aborted, challenged a rematch, aborted again, tried 3 more times, aborting each time. I tried one more time, finally matched up again, another abort.

What is your seek range set to? 

Drewyknot

The "seek range" hasn't mattered in a year and a half. I have it set to +- 25 but that never mattered as it aways just gave me whoever it wanted.  I posted about that for the last year, but now I wish I had that problem lol ...and when I do get a game, every 5 or 10 min they're still outside those parameters. 

Drewyknot

but the numbers dropped precipitously the last few weeks, Mousam. From always getting an immediate game to not being able to find a real game in 10 or 15 min.

Johnny_Gumshoe
Yes, Martin. I have deleted the app multiple times.
Drewyknot

You deleted it on your computer, Johnny?

Johnny_Gumshoe
No, on my phone. I use the phone for the app and website.

try rated games & see if that helps.

Drewyknot

Rated games work. But I'd rather not play rated games. In any event, it seems to be working again. Getting matched quickly this afternoon.
