Too many vowels
I don't want to be a killjoy, and the tweaks to the new game are nice, but as someone who stepped away from the game after playing the old version for years, it seems clear to me that the new game Is far too easy!! That is, there are too many vowels on the grid, and this makes the average word eight or ten letters! It is simply not the same game. The old version rarely gave you three different vowels. The new one routinely starts a grid with one of each vowel and two E! The reason this is important is that it amplifies the advantage for the opening turn, and allows crazy levels of come from behind wins. All in all the tweaks are better in version three, but the strategy level is drastically lower.
I enjoy this game, and have played it for years. I enjoy it so much I paid for the upgrade to get unlimited games (despite being a notorious cheapskate).
However, recent changes make for a worse game experience. In version 2 the new developer made it too easy by adding more vowels to the boards. Games routinely end in under 10 moves, which is not nearly as fun for this seasoned player.
The latest addition of a chat feature seems superfluous. But even more annoying is that the "chat" button is where there used to be a "dismiss" button. I don't know how many times I've accidentally pressed it, then had to quit out of chat mode. Did someone fail Interface Design 101?
Version 2 is even better
I love chat!
The game play is the same but better. Better notifications, same game play, and the addition of the preview state of words you want to play is fantastic.
I do wish for one change: when its my turn, and I am opening my game, DONT SHOW ME ANYTHING ON THE GAME BOARD UNTIL THE CHANGES ARE LOADED! I get fooled all the time because I see my last game play (which is always awesome!) and I think it's the result of my opponents play - giving me a false sense when all of a sudden I see that I'm getting clobbered because they played some 8-point word!
