It’s been a little while since we’ve written and I wanted to give you all an update on where we are. First: THANK YOU FOR PLAYING! We are in there too everyday and we LOVE this game and we LOVE having you play with us. It’s so much fun.
But, we are not resting… Well… OK, both john and I (“Black Snapper”) each took our first vacations since launching, but we are back and we are dedicated to making things even better. Top of the list is the subject of this post.
When we first launched Wordament, we didn’t know how many players we could handle. My gut reaction was: 250. We actually don’t know what the reality was. We’ve had games with 260 players, but lately we’ve been seeing an eerily similar number: 220. That appears to be the number of players we are handling, and some of you are getting “dropped.” You will see this, when you are shown as either 0 points, or the only person in the results list.
Believe me, if I had a nickel for every tear I’ve shed over this, I would be sitting on a beach in Mexico for the rest of my life. We are not satisfied with where we are at and we have a pretty exciting plan to get higher than this in the next fews weeks. So, if you are one of the “unlucky ones” that sees a 0 score or only you in the leaderboard, know that we are working hard to continue to make this game scale and grow to support you, your friends, and the hoard of other folks that have discovered and enjoy this game.
