    Changes to The Computer Player

    April 16th, 2013

    We’ve changed the way the computer handles payouts for winning and losing. Now, when you win a game against out dear friend A.I. Wordsworth, you’ll be able to win some coins. If you lose a match, we’ve also adjusted how many coins A.I. will take. Below is a handy table that will explain the changes. Please note that you still need 9 coins to activate a game.

    Difficulty Win Lose
    Easy +1 -1
    Medium +3 -3
    Hard +5 -5

    Score Multiplying Boosts Retired

    April 12th, 2013

    We’ve updated the game to retire the score multiplier boosts. You won’t be able to purchase or use them, even though you’ll still see them on the menu. You’ll get a message from the servers about why they were removed and if you do have any unused score multiplier boosts, how to get your coin refund.

    Again, we retired these boosts to better balance the game and make matches not lopsided in the later rounds if someone uses a boost to rocket into first place after trailing with a big point deficit for the entire game.

    Have a great weekend!

    Retiring Word Score Boosts

    April 11th, 2013

    We wanted to give you all a heads-up that we’ll be discontinuing the use of all the boosts that alter word score. We’ve been trying to figure out how to better balance the game and, by listening to the community of players, decided it was just best to retire some of the boosts. In the next couple of days, we will retire the Double Letter, Double Word, Triple Letter and Triple Word score boosts.

    The decision comes after much tweaking, testing and consideration of player feedback. Ultimately, those boosts were too powerful in the late rounds and rather than introduce new things, the best (and simplest answer) was to take these boosts off the playing field based on the feedback we’ve received.

    If you have unused word score boosts once the boosts are retired (we’ll update the news again when it happens), please contact community@toystudio.com and we’ll issue you a coin refund for your purchase or if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

    See you on the leaderboards!
