I was thinking the same thing. I am no genius - but I used to be able to get a few 100% each time and now I am lucky if I can get one and they other thing, it is taking 10-15 seconds for the round to open and almost the same amount of time to close- what's up with that. You never see sub 20 second scores any more - I am luck I can get sub 40 second ones now.

The questions are definately getting longer. Not a lot of "Alt. of..." definitions like there used to be. Also the scientific "A subgenus of whatever species" questions seem to make up at least 1-3 questions a round lately. A biologist who knows the names of these animals could make a killing in word rounds.

You mean you think '=AufkLArung' is difficult?

Seriously, every few days I have a barrage of really long, nearly impossible definitions for several hours in a row. They seem to come in spurts like that.

Definitely. I have noticed that every so often, and I'm not sure when yet, there seems to be an influx of "what the heck???" questions. By the time I get to the 10th one, I'm shaking my head in frustration because I really wasn't sure what they'd asked on any of them. I'm thinking that they must release a bunch of new questions every so often and perhaps that's when we notice it. Because, otherwise there seems to be a rhythm to the questions and with most of them you can have a fairly good sense of what the answer should be.

The only thing more fun than a paragraph long question is 5 choices and no question like I had the other day. I didn't know I had to be Karnac The Magnificent to play some of these rounds.

These questions are defintely getting harder and longer.Even with dial-up I used to be able to score in the low 30's and others were coming in at 17. Some of you other long time members may remember those early days of WR. I have about a 10 sec. delay at the start and most of the time all 10 questions are a paragraph long. I am doing great just to get in the top ten with low 50's.
