comment Automatch / queueing players
I was using Redis as handles queues well. I was initially managing the matchmaking within the server itself and it worked very well but I found two issues with this approach: I couldnt' find a way to scale it out and secondly how does the server request a new game to start on another server. It could send out a message to them all but then the load wouldn't be balanced?

Will do - it's 6am here so might sleep in a minute and carry on in a while. It's a bit mind boggling for a first go lol.
