    Andersp: Yes. If both players have the autopass set on their Settings page, the game will be played with it.

    BIG BAD WOLF: Wrong. I won't be happy because the autopass would force me to make a move again instead of going to sleep and relax for several hours before you log in to make the pass move manually.

    Subject: Backgammon Stairs and autopass
    As you might have noticed, we have recently introduced the auto pass feature for backgammon games. When a player accepts a game invitation, he can choose if he agrees to play with auto pass or not.
    However, this system doesn't work with Stairs because there are no invitations to accept/reject. There are two possible solutions of the problem:
    • All Stairs games will be played with auto pass by default. Who joins Stairs, must accept this rule.
    • Players will be able to specify whether they want to play Stairs games with the auto pass or not. Then, when a new Stairs game is created, it will use the auto pass feature only if both players have this option set to "accept".

    J5o: Because many players complained that 1-game matches are too slow. Fischer Stairs are for very fast players who want to see the results as soon as possible.

    I think it's too early to blame the system. Until more steps are generated, it's pointless to say the system is bad.
