Rivals will get these game modes with the update after the next. It will include the 3 theme packs era of progress, turmoil, and gold.
You can look at uncut beta gameplay in our official Catan Universe facebook group
I think there are not enough players online at any given time to allow the matchmaker to perform well. Maybe 40 people waiting for a game at any time. The majority of players are probably around 1000 ELO. Anyone who has 1100 or 1200 will probably be the only one in the queue.
But since the matchmaker is obviously focused on creating games as soon as possible, it will not even try to wait for people in your range before "lowering its standards" and assigning 1000 ELO guys to your game.
Really, lobby would allow people to have more control over the game. And that would make them happier. But that is not going to happen.

@Stroom Hey thanks for the response. Not what I hoped for but after playing just one free match, I saw what's up. The guy with 1200 elo got all the rolls, never got blocked when the robber was on his tile and was able to accumulate 15 cards twice with no repercussions. When it was on my 6 (2 cities), 6 was rolled 5 times the rest of the game but no more 7s were rolled. The guy was a hack, and would have had no chance in a home game, but this is so very not a home game is it? Guess I will not be investing in this version and will stick to when I can get together with friends and family.
I started playing Catan last week. Played my first auto matches today. After one server issue, the next three have all given me the “Game over. All humans have left the game.” There is no option to review the board or stats, or even confirm who won. This is extremely frustrating as a new player who loves the board game. I do not have this problem when playing custom matches with friends, either. Just The auto match.
