Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

Finally won last night after months of trying.

Mondays are now movie trivia btw. Reached the final question on Monday, feels like that's the best shot to win.

I just won the Office themed HQ Words game with a total time of 100 seconds. The top guy was 39 seconds, for an average of under 4seconds per puzzle! How is that even possible?

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

That's absurd, my screen isn't even responsive enough to get one word done in under 4 seconds.

I won the Super Bowl Bacon-based HQ last month, the only question I wasn't entirely sure of was the six degrees of Kevin Bacon one at the end (I guessed it right). Didn't get the free burgers though

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I don't even play Words anymore because it's impossible for me. And yeah, I would type an answer in immediately and still could never get a time as low as 4 seconds.
I do have 3 regular HQ wins, though.

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

A good read on the terrible CEO and Scott Rogowsky's departure. I haven't played in weeks, so I finally uninstalled the app.

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I quit playing months ago. I wanted the games to start on time. Hosts yammering on for 5-10 minutes at the beginning and doing tons of shout outs really turned me off on the game....

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I still play (up to 7 wins now, 1 being sports), but am starting to get tired of the constant technical issues and how most of the games are 15 question affairs now. And Words is fucking impossible.

I actually started playing more regularly lately since I found out they added seasons, but they are incredibly dishonest with the push notifications. Question 1 starting now, and I open the app and they're at least 5 minutes away from it. It's very close to me uninstalling due to the annoyance of just wanting to play the game and not being able to.

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I am considering uninstalling due to me being a sore loser (I have only been up to question 10 one time) and their now constant notifications. I liked having one notification reminding me a game is coming up but now they are sending 4 or 5 before the game finally starts. Hell, I still get them even if I am in the app. And if I turn off the notifications, I will just forget to ever play.

So yeah...they are pushing me out the door.

I feel the same. I'm on the brink.

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

I won the Smarturday game Saturday night and last night I ran out of time with one letter left on the last puzzle on Words. I'll never get the close to winning again, only reason I did last night because of the movie theme.

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

My notifications are off too for the same reasons stated here. I still liked the themed nights but I don't need all the damn notifications.

Scored $2.52 in the Pokemon game the other night, which was more than I had won for all the other games combined...

Re: HQ Trivia (iOS / Android)

Finally uninstalled the app. They were hitting me with reminders even when I had all games unsubscribed.

I guess the one bright side to this for the players is the prize amount per person should grow now with people jumping ship.
