Reduced Timer in Trivia Crack

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Has anyone noticed recently in Trivia Crack, when you come and answer a question, you no longer have 30 seconds to respond, but only 20 seconds.

I am not sure if I might have done something, perhaps a card, or perhaps the developpers have reduced the timer too.

Has anyone else noticed this or am I the only one?

Hi! I've also noticed that we only get twenty seconds to answer questions in Trivia Crack now. I ignore all the business about gems and cardes in that game, so I don't suppose they have anything to do with the shorter time: I can only assume that the developers thought thirty seconds was too long and suddenly decided to reduce the answer time to twenty seconds.

I do not like it, either. I think that is not good for users of Voice-Over who cannot see all of the answers at a glance. It's the same as whther you read print or braille. The best braille readers still cannot read nearly as fast as readers of inkprint material because we have to read sequentially, not able to see the whole page at once.

Trivia crack kingdoms only gives twenty seconds, so I think they switched the regular game to unify them.

I don't like the reduced time; sometimes I'm still trying to navigate my answer choices when the time starts ticking down. So far, it hasn't cost me a question, but I think 30 seconds was more reasonable.

greetings I believe it:P having 30 seconds like we did was easy for us voiceover users to navigate question and answer it. now since time reduced made it more difficult. whatsthere game have us be forced to use extra time power up etc;) who knows lol.

I can answer in 20 seconds but I'm pretty fast at navigating through the game and voiceover for me is at 80 percent so for me it presents more of a challenge to me to process faster, and get my total recall going. Brain exercise for me. I love it! By the way if you want to play me I'm ke7zum on there.

If I did this right, here is a tiny demo

I got Kingdoms yesterday, and it gives 30 seconds to answer. I figured that they should match, but they do not. By the time I look at the 4 answers in trivia Crack using Voice-Over, the ticker has begun, and I'm almost out of time.

Yeah it takes practice but as you heard by the demo it is very possible to answer a question in about 10 seconds. If you missed the demo go to one of my other posgts in this thread.

Good luck.

I know that it might be doable to answer within 20 seconds, but not everyone can or is able to respond in a shorter time.

I myself am able to respond within 20 seconds but if Kingdoms allows us 30, why can't the same be done for Trivia Crack. It is best to make it the same for both and 30 seconds is about enough time for most to answer. Although I enjoy the game, it seems that that the developer is slowly making it more difficult to play the game. For example, when I use to navigate the main screen that listed my current active games, VoiceOver would read aloud the opponent, the level and score, and other relevant information. Now all that VoiceOver reads is the opponent's name, it no longer reads the rest, yet in Kingdoms, all this information is read fine. I've contacted the developer a few versions ago, which is not really an easy thing to do as I can't find any means to contact them from within the app and had to resort to contact them via Twitter, and the issue is still there. And now, they reduce the timer by 10 seconds.

Alright I understand that this isn't the end of the world as the game is still playable, but they are no longer easy to reach to provide feedback, nor do they seem to respond when we are able.

Most recently the question timer changed from 30 down to 20 seconds. This affects all versions. I kept an old phone with version 2.2 because it was the last version that VoiceOver could still read all elements on the startup screen. Another annoying change is the increased coin price of PowerUps. However, with the reduced time, who has the time to use PowerUps. VoiceOver users are directly affected by this limited timer. Unfortunately, their support staff was not interested when Their new version lost much of its VoiceOver accessibility for the startup page, and agaiin, they have shown no interest in how the shorter timer penalizes VoiceOver users.
