I'd resign all my games not once but twice and my rating dropped 100+. reason: my opponents are too slow. any advice on how to find fast players?
When I find anyone to challenge, I study their profile and their public games. If I want a fast game I choose only those that play fast.
If they have finished lots of games in the latest week even if they don't have many concurrent games going, then they're fast.
If they have a lot of timed-out games, they're not.
If you find a game that is played fast then both players are fast players. Challenge them both.
Their profile and public games give a lot of clues whether they play fast or not.
