Score depends on task answer speed

So far you have been able to add timer to the question. Now you can optionally set it to deduct points depending on how fast the player answers.

How to apply?

Create the task. In the Advanced tab add a timer in seconds (120 for example). Tick the “Score depends on answering speed” and save the task. During the game, players who are slower to complete the task will get less points than players who answer quickly.

How deduction of the points is calculated?

Timer in seconds / Score = Time for 1 score point deducted.
Example: When the timer is 120 seconds and the task gives 10 points then every 12 seconds player will lose 1 point.

It is worthwhile to brief players about it and set up points value and timer duration so that deduction is easy to perceive and understand. 120 seconds for a task giving 60 points means change on screen in every 2 seconds.

Special cases

The feature is disabled for negative point values. If point value is minus (negative) for the task (-100 for example), then the feature is disabled. It is also disabled if the superpower turns the point value to negative during game play.
