Amazing vocabularies

Post by Billy Pilgrim » 01 February 2021, 13:01

It's pretty amazing to me the vocabularies of the people who play this game.

Knowledge is power, literally, in word games.

and when it comes to knowledge, books are the nuclear bombs of power.

There's not much that can done to counteract people cheating with scrabble finders / anagram solvers; perhaps only playing real-time with short time control would mitigate, but playing turn-based with virtually unlimited thinking time, there's little difference between an amazing vocabulary and an external tool. I feel like that's an inherent flaw of online games in general.

Especially when the person in question is not a native English speaker and doesn’t respond to anything in the chat. Are they actually enjoying the game?

Probably enjoying beating other poor strangers senseless rather than the game itself. I already encountered one in Hardback too (and that user racked up infamy in Arena mode also).

I don't even understand what enjoyment could be gained by using a computer program to generate words. I agree with the earlier poster - real-time games with shorter turn lengths might help a little. However, I find that folks who use such cheat programs are fast players - not slow ones.
