Quick-, Auto-, Costum-Match: How do they work?
What is Quick-Match?
Quickmatch is the fastest way to get into a game of Catan. It will allow you to start the Basegame with other Users.
Please note that Quickmatch only includes the basegame.
What is Auto-Match?
In Auto-Match you can select the Games you want to play in great detail.
Select the Button Expansions to choose which Expansions you want to play. (Set the checkmarks on the expansions you like)
Select the Button “Scenarios” to select which Scenario you want to play. You can queue for more than one Scenario. (Set the checkmarks on the scenarios you want to play)
You can alter the amount of players you want to play with in the bottom third of this screen by clicking +/-
(Please note that at this point a 3 player match can only be played on a dedicated 3 player Scenario. Make sure you selected these)
You can also filter possible opponents by activating the checkmark fur guild, friends or Karma.
Filter by Karma will match you up with other Players about the same Karma-Level as you have.
Filter by Friends will only match you up with friends (Please note that you will have to have at least 2 friends in order to start a game)
Filter by Guild will let you only match up with members of your own guild
All these filters can have a drastically influence on amount of possible opponents, which is displayed on the right side of your screen.
What is Costum-Match?
Here you can determine exactly which scenario you want to play and you are able to invite your friends.
Please note: If more than one scenario or expansion is selected the game will randomly choose which scenario is going to start.
