On multiple choice questions, I often do them fast and sometimes get it wrong first. I think more tries would be much better, and to make sure there aren't too many guesses, there could also be more choices.

Well, it's awfully exhausting to think of 8 answer choices for certain problems. And having more than one guess would be huge difference! I mean, seriously! Any wacko could just solve 4 easy problems and then just use those points to solve like a Level 5!

Yeah, I thought about that. It's just that I think that too few choices makes silly mistakes too influential. I am not sure what the best solution is, it isn't too bad now, but I just have trouble with it.

Yeah I guess that is possible, but as points don't really serve a purpose now it seems like everyone would do that... Will point exchange or something similar come back?

Yeah exactly so I think there should be more choices, like 8.

Making eight good choices takes quite a bit more time and can be overwhelming.

Hmm... Pretty sure you get 3 tries before you are ineligible. Or did that get "patched"?

You only get 1 try on multiple choice problems... unless you've discovered some sort of bug. In which case, please tell me how to reproduce it!
