On pc, playing in a browser, i encounter continuously bugs (freezes needing hard reset) in Chrome.
The game is much more stable in Firefox. (both latest version and in windows 10 64bit).

Now i tried firefox beta. There i get this error:
The loading of java continues and i can play. Don't know about any crashes yet.
RE: New timer 60 sec and kick out
I do like the timer, 60 seconds. No problem with that, on the contrary, it's an improvement.
Only: the timer should stop for x seconds, every time the player does something / is active.
A timer on responding to a trading offer would also be welcome; so everyone feels you don't have all the time of the world when an exchange is offered.
When we would have such a "Smart Timer", 60 seconds would even be too long.
The kick out is also too rough. When a player stops playing without quitting, it is ok if he gets 3 automatic moves and then is kicked out. But when a player is active and runs out of time, the automatic move is severe enough as penalty.
RE: Auto-match variables
I agree with Stroom. Experience, quantified as games played, has not a good relationship with skill. You can frequently encounter players with a low figure for experience and with good skill. Including experience in a matchmaker system would damage the value of the important parameters: ELO and Karma.
RE: In Game Dice Statistics
I believe timers are needed. You also have time to think when it's not your turn.
Maybe 90seconds is too long.
I would like to try 60sec, with an addition of 30 seconds per trade proposal.
On pc things have to move on. You cannot see the others, you don't know why you are waiting and waiting.
I think there is a crucial point that Stroom misses. This is not a cardboard game. This is internet. You cannot see what the others do. Wait for 10 minutes? What do you expect the others would do, clustered to their pc and aware of nothing? Is this a plea for meditation and introspection? Do you expect the other players are holy monks? I guess most of us want the game to run at a healthy speed. It's what i read in the chats. Of course it takes some more skill to be fast.
The timers are the same for everyone, so better players have an advantage.
Play more, you'll get faster.
