Default What's with all the low scoring boards?

I can't find any that I can score over 700 on. What's happening here?

Default Hello Brisul

That's strange because I'm finding a lot of them.

How do I put this delicately...

Nope can't. All I have are sarcastic remarks and hyperbole.

Example: "I don't know what you're talking about. There were never any boards I could score over 700 on, so as far as I'm concerned, nothing's changed."

Or another: "Perhaps it's not the boards that have gotten lower, but your ability to think. Or type."

Last one of many more in my head: "700! Pfff you don't see Unbeatable complaining about a lack of high-scoring boards, do you?"

I love the low scoring boards. I've seen plenty with 700+ scores though. Just a product of randomness?

Curious, do you mean boards with many words or boards that you actually can execute a high score?

Most of the boards that I see are scoring between 300 and 500 points (5x5) and 200 and 400 points in 4x4.

Not many score quite high for either size.

I'm currently having trouble finding boards with 21-24 letter words in 5x5, which I think is still going to take me a while to find XD

I've seen a good injection of good boards for my abilities, at least
