I’ve only managed to play 1-2 games from matchmaking in the last few days. Usually it doesn’t find anyone so I just close the game.

Does anyone else use matchmaking? Does it broaden the search if it doesn’t find you someone near you?

Have you checked the region you are searching in? It may be that no one has created a game in that region. You should be able to select all.

The other option is to hit up the looking for game section of the Discord to find people to play against.

No, i don’t think anyone uses the matchmaking, just use the lobby browser to look for games. Also sometimes you have to refresh lobbies again after loading up the lobby browser.
