The Social Batch - Fans of W.E.L.D.E.R. Cry Foul Over Alleged In ...

Via Scoop.itThe Social Batch News

W.E.L.D.E.R., the popular word-building or, rather, word-welding board game that used to be among the top 50 paid apps in the App Store, was updated just a few days ago, and avid players of the game are evidently not so keen on the new version. Dissatisfied players are posting messages on a forum thread titled “You ruined it!” on the game’s official website, letting the people responsible for the game know that they dislike the update with a passion. In a nutshell, the roots of their disappointment in W.E.L.D.E.R. version 1.2 are twofold, with both reasons citing an additional feature. First, there’s the whole business of Gigawatts. I should point out that I use the word “business” here both loosely (as a thing of principal concern for users) and formally (as a commercial activity), and you’ll find out why soon enough. In the new W.E.L.D.E.R., Gigawatts are special points that can be spent “to supercharge your game.” Notice that in addition to making Gigawatts sound really important by giving it an electrifying and enticing name, their presumed importance is further conveyed in the use of the equally enticing but nonetheless vague word “supercharge” to describe what they’re for.
