a common behaviour due to the pages and pages of games waiting to be filled is to create a lot at once. some will fill early but the rest will progress to the front where you hope some will fill before they expire.


This is news to me... I used to have games waiting for +2 months to fill and they never expired?

Public games do not expire at all. Private games are the only ones that can expire.

Thanks for clearing that up.

MERGED with your identical suggestion. The new Join a Game page reduction (collapsing identical games) should lessen the problems that the OP is concerned about.
