It’s great fun despite the haters

I enjoy the games, I feel like I’m part of something and it challenges me to think, inspires me to try, makes me take chances. The comedy is what’s at heart of HQ but the negativity amongst the chat is ridiculous, it’s a feature that isn’t essential to the experience however there are some individuals who constantly critique & review the hosts. Why? I don’t know, yet their consistent theme of stating some other hosts is better then the current host at that moment makes me think they are concerned with ranking people on a list as if they are doing us a favor because if we think someone is a fun host but they are on the bad host list then then maybe I’m a loser for finding them funny so it’s best their opinion set me straight because I don’t want to enjoy the diligent research and brave joke telling these uniquely talented spontaneous wordsmithing comics tend to deliver as they hold a couple hundred thousand peoples’ attention for an interactive fifteen minute set. Sure it’s like the skill set needed for a Dragqueen Brunch Bingo or some Trivia Tuesday at the local dive bar, but these hosts are dealing with being on cam and putting up with more open ended critiques on social media. The hate ain’t great, but these idiots needed to be called out on a public forum because its likely they might read this, however change their behaviour is unlikely. We can though, I’ve changed how I use the app, rarely have the chat on anymore.

Great and Original-The Current Generation Family Fued

I can say that I’ve been playing this game since November of this year and man is it “first of all” addictive and the schedule for this game helps as well, for weekdays the games are held 6 hours apart from each other (3PM EST and 9PM EST) and on the weekends, they have the 9PM EST game which honestly for me, makes it very convenient to tune in and play. I’ve also never seen any other app like it. There are some problems once and a while, but for the most part, they’ve ironed them out really well and continue to iron them. They try their best to give everyone a fair chance at winning or splitting the cash prize. They do a great job on adding features and mostly bug fixes to make the experience even better than previously. I also like how it’s evolved so much over just the past month. The HQ developers do in fact work on the game and they push updates regularly so now the game CAN handle the ever-growing 700k+ people that are tuning in to play so don’t worry about problems with lag much and if so, the question tab will appear either way. In my opinion, the host is extremely funny and makes light of any situation. I WOULDN’T consider him to be annoying or cringing. So YES, this is a definite recommendation from me to download this game and at least try it out once.

Great idea but terrible execution

First off, I’ll say that this app is a great idea and should be a ton of fun. I love trivia and am good at it, and I don’t really have complaints about the difficulty of later questions because it makes sense that the game needs to narrow down the active players significantly, so that people can win more than a few cents each. However, the game has two big problems that I think need to be addressed if this game is to stay relevant.

My first big issue with this game is that the app absolutely cannot keep up with the number of players. I have been kicked from games randomly, lagged out, and several times I have selected the correct answer, it’s shown that I selected the correct answer, and then it’s told me I’ve been eliminated.

My second big problem with the game bothers me even more than the first. I regularly skip games because I do not want to deal with watching the host. The host is the absolute worst. He is so unbelievably annoying and he just rambles forever about nonsense, completely ruining games regularly and making it not fun to play. I don’t understand how this isn’t more of an issue for more people. The host single-handedly makes me not want to play the game, even though the chance of winning money keeps bringing me back. Please fire Scott! He is so, so terrible and I hate him more with every game I play; he’s making me become less and less interested in continuing to use the app.
