Good fun, limited question database, league structure needs work
I'm editing this review after originally scoring it 1* for not being able to log back in, which has now been fixed.
It's fun to play and I like the element of working your way up the leagues, BUT a major flaw in that system is league standings are based solely on points scored, not wins or win % etc. So someone who has lost 100/100 games will be miles ahead of someone who was won 50/50.
More often than not I end up playing against a "pending" opponent which presumably means they take their turn after me? It's a lot more fun when the other player's score is going up at the same time as yours! Could it not be done so that you both play at the same time..? I'd happily wait a few seconds for someone else to join a "live" game.
I only played a handful of quizzes before I saw the same Iwobi question three times, and also had two questions about Stuart Pearce in one quiz. Not sure what the algorithm for questions is, maybe just completely random but the question database seems pretty small and also a little outdated (a few questions are time-specific but aren't based on the current season).
You have to watch a video advert to view your results which is annoying!
Edit: just had a question of "which country did Eder represent at Euro 2016?" and both Portugal and Italy were options... there are two Eder's, and both played at Euro 2016 for different countries!
