TSV PUZZLE change in tickets?
Hi I just done the TSV Puzzle 7/23/2018 only got 50 tickets You scored 2,639 points!
You Earned 50 tickets!
I use to get 200 or maybe 250 what happen? Have the tickets changed?
Because the puzzle was originally created to award a prize to the person with the fastest time, it was built with some “anti-cheat” features in it. One of those is that it detects if the connection slows down. That can happen if you pause the puzzle for more than a couple seconds or if your computer gets busy downloading updates or if you just have an erratic internet speed. In those cases, it only awards 50 tickets.
2,639 is not a particularly high score for the puzzle. Generally you have to be under 5 minutes to get 250 tickets and under 8 or 9 minutes (I forget which) for 200 tickets. I’m not sure where the breakdown is after that. Your score would indicate you took about 40 minutes (5,000 minus the # of seconds to complete the puzzle equals your score).
Kats777, this also happened to me but I don’t report it if it only happens once. I did it again & got the 250 tickets for it. I am surprised & glad to see that I wasn’t imagining that it happened. It didn’t make sense at the time. Something must be up with this. Anyone else?
