I would love some clarification on how gamefinder works, as it is quite unusable in peak times.

Narrowing your TV gap filter is probably the best way to narrow down the excessive offers, that refresh every second it seems. These refreshes often cause me to hit plus or minus on the wrong teams.

Why do teams reappear when I hit minus? Sometimes with a second of doing it. Is it because the other guy hits + and it wants to give me another chance?

If you really want to get a fair game ASAP, seems you need to prioritize hitting - on the teams you dont want to play until you hear the ding, which means you have an offer. This sounds silly, but you are much more likely to find each other if you reduce the options for everyone. Now you want to prioritize the games you do want with +, so you can find that match.

I enjoy playing with my goblins the most which dont mind a tv gap as they love bribes, but allowing even a medium tv gap in peak times makes gamefinder so unusable, that I usually just do something else that isn't a waste of time until I hear a ding, then start the process above.

I realize that me activating gamefinder without trying hard to find a match just adds to the gamefinder spam, but I'm sure that there are many who feel similar.

Its funny how we went from blackbox that was unusable in offpeak, to gamefinder that is unusable in peak.

I suspect there won’t be any resources put into tweaking the current Gamefinder. You can see the todo list here https://fumbbl.com/p/todo so I guess there are plans in place that should improve / resolve the issues you mention.

Sorry, I don't have any answers to your questions, just another question.

Are we suppose to try and find games outside of gamefinder first?

I think he means just kinda hanging out on Gamefinder without actually trying hard to get a game (I plead no contest).

I just noticed when you get the ding, it also changes that line to a slightly green background. Not sure if this feature was added recently, or my monitor/eyes are just too dodgy to notice before.

On Gamefinder page click on "Settings" button, then tick the "Enable sound" box under "Options".
That way you will hear a sound whenever a game is offered to you.
