WORDROUNDS ARE GETTING *REALLY* COMPETITIVE

There used to be a good 15, sometimes 20 second range of times for the top 10 finishers of the WordRounds. The winner would be in the low to mid 20's, and a score under the mid 30's would probably get you in the top 10.

Recently, though, the range has been much smaller, as more sploofuser are closing in on the best times. Take a look at the results of a recent round, where the spread from #1 to #10 was a mere 7.1 seconds:

#1 Imatfaal 100%, 21.40 s.
#2 Violetblue 100%, 24.07 s.
#3 Linenlady 100%, 24.51 s.
#4 Eksimba 100%, 24.60 s.
#5 Groupw 100%, 24.80 s.
#6 Marmac68 100%, 27.26 s.
#7 Ehodgson 100%, 27.88 s.
#8 Tinaglow 100%, 27.96 s.
#9 Flybybethy 100%, 28.17 s.
#10 Fdnymedic 100%, 28.57 s.

Whew! That's a tough crowd. I hope we keep seeing more names show up in the top 10. Makes it very fun!

And may I thank you for using that round as an example

You're quite right about the wordrounds - you've pretty much got to be 22 secs or under to win - and often even that will not do. There is often a large group around 24-28 secs, pushing any 30+ off the board.

I had to laugh the other day when Violetblue lamented that it was a tough crowd when 22 seconds got you 4th place. Going gold makes a big difference for some folks, I think. It takes a few rounds to work up a rhythm and having 10 shots gets you there more often.

They're cheating, I tell you!

Of course I am kidding. :D I agree, the competition makes it all the better.

It would help if I didn't have 15-20 sec loading times as of late! I get blown out of the top ten now.

You all have to be cheating...I just know it. :D

word round loading times for me are horrible as of the past two days-i usually try to play very late or early mornings(1-4)to get a halfway decent position-Martha

I agree with the "I'm just happy to get 100%" - I used to be able to get in the top 10 every once in a while but I am just not quick enough. I have decided I read slower than some people can answer and move on down the list.

I know that some people are very quick though. Not me, but if you take the quiz within a few minutes after the hour, you'll notice that there are only a few people that played and most are very fast times. I'm happy to get 90%!

I have to say i stopped doing Word Rounds because on Dial Up I just can't compete. My best time EVER was 24 something and i nearly had a heart attack achieving it! LOL
