Free swap should be banned.

Perhaps a ruling or post should be made about Zynga’s insidious new “free swap” power-up. While the tile pile, word strength and hindsight options seem like acceptable time-saving or learning tools, I feel they have gone too far this time. If you swap tiles, you should be penalized a turn, that’s part of the game. Getting a free swap just because you’ve bought one with their silly coins seems like cheating to me. I refuse to use it, and I would hope that any player on the site would do the same. However, I’ve seen my daily average tank from the usual 60% or so down to 35% in the last month, some opponents making countless bingos against me. Is it coincidence, or are certain opponents using the free swap? Who knows? That’s part of the problem...there’s no way of telling if a player has used it, there’s no indication on the app about it. I urge you to make a ruling about using this “cheat”, as I feel it is, and urge other players to do the right thing and play the game as it should be played. IMHO.

I agree with you. However, there is no way to monitor it. I too have seen a lot more bingos, including three in a row!
