It's another minor frustration and change for the worse (like the arrow timeout thing etc) but they all add up. I wonder how many of these suggestions are actually getting passed on, let alone acted upon.
@vickibma Indeed. It still seems to be luck of the draw as to whether the colors match the right person or not. There was already a good thread discussing this (complete with screenshots). They were using more than two colors before, so at least there's progress lol.
The square numbers are smaller in the new layout. Why? Was anyone complaining about their size in the old one? I wasn't. The new ones look spindly, like the tile letters themselves.
Why did you change 𝘢𝘯𝘺 of the typography when there wasn't anything wrong with it and people liked it the way it was?
I withdraw my prior criticism of the tile typography. I've gotten used to the new letter style and now prefer it. I guess I was just used to the way it was before and resistant to what seemed to be unnecessary change.
I'm still complaining about the dull gray star, however, and the ugly black arrow. The prior star and arrow should be restored. The arrow should also work as before, of course. Also, the Define box should be green rather than the present dull dark gray, and as I've observed before, the return key should trigger Define when the text cursor is in the "Type a word here" field.
@anexparrot I have been accused of that myself, actually. But I don't consider it an "easy win," because to win consistently on a short clock you have to stay on your toes. I have LOST games like that to the clock as often as I have won them. It just happens to be the style of game I prefer.
