Understanding the Matching Process on Winked
Matching with someone on Winked can sometimes be confusing, especially if you’re new to the app. Here’s a breakdown of how the matching process works:
1. Profiles and Availability: Not all profiles on Winked are available for matching. Some profiles are still unavailable, which means their stories haven’t been released yet. You can check the list of unavailable profiles on the app.
2. Counterparts: In some cases, you may come across multiple profiles with similar storylines and characters. These profiles are called counterparts. If you match with one counterpart, you won’t be able to match with the other.
3. Character Availability: Currently, you can match with 20 regular characters, 3 premium characters, and 2 regional characters (only available in Italian and German). The rest of the characters are either counterparts or still unavailable.
4. New Character Releases: Winked releases up to 2 new available characters every month, while also introducing 2 to 4 unavailable matches each week. So, if you see a new character that you can’t match with, it’s likely because they’re not available yet.
5. Traits and Compatibility: The traits listed on your profile have no influence on the matching process. Compatibility is not determined by matching traits. If a match is available, you’ll always be able to match with them, unless you’ve already matched with their counterpart.
Matching and Unmatching with Characters
1. Matching: To match with a character on Winked, you need to unlock all the traits listed on their profile. Once you’ve unlocked all the traits, you can swipe on their profile again to initiate a match. All special matches are matchable, and you can have conversations with them.
2. Unmatching: It is possible to unmatch with a character on Winked. To do this, open the character’s profile from the Chats Menu without opening the conversation. Tap on the profile picture of the character you wish to unmatch. Please note that unmatching with a character means you won’t be able to match with their counterparts unless the game implements that feature in the future. In that case, you would need to restart the game to match with the counterparts.
3. Changing Matches: If you’ve already matched with a character but want to match with another one, simply unmatch the current character. However, please note that unmatching and matching with counterparts is not currently possible without restarting the game. Restarting the game would be necessary to match with the counterparts you want.
4. Match Availability: If you’re experiencing a lack of new matches, it could be because the majority of characters are still unavailable. While there is no limit to the number of people you can be matched with at one time, it’s important to note that there are more unavailable matches compared to available ones. Make sure to check the counterparts list to avoid matching with someone you don’t like.
