Stop hunting crowns!!!

After having tested the Crown system for a while, I understand that the crowns have only one meaning: How many times have you repeated the same exercises. They are not connected to skill. They are not connected to the repetition of certain words, since repeating a word under another section does not count. Getting to level five means nothing, except maybe that you cannot repeat that section anymore.

So my only conclusion is: Stop hunting crowns! Do new lessons when you feel like doing them! If you want to repeat a new lesson, leave it just before you are done with it. Use the Practice button to choose what lessons to repeat. Forget that they do not count against your crown levels, since these levels are anyhow meaningless.

This way, you could do structured learning in your own efficient way.

I eat crowns for breakfast now. yum. Crowns grow on trees, and we have to plant new trees and eat all the crowns. Crowns are good for you, and low calorie, so eat your crowns.

When I get the munchies, I sit down and eat me some crowns. Yummy yellow crowns, I loves them. they are precious. Precious crowns. My precious crowns. They burns they do.

I must admit that I binge out on crowns too. Sometimes it feels as though my keyboard should belch. I have never had more XPs in a day than I get now the crowns are here. I figure that all those Xps get me nearer the next level quicker.The only fear I have is that I wont be able to understand a word of it when I get there

yep, I've got more XP in the last couple weeks than I have in a year. But i'm only binging on the trees where I already know the language well. On the ones I'm really learning I'm starting to skip around more after the first week or two of binging. But the lessons I already know well go in less than a minute. It's really easy to rack up 500xp in an hour or so.

I promised myself I wouldn't start seriously on another language until I reached 25 in German. I don't think my memory will top up on more than one at a time. At this rate I can reach that magical 25 in a few weeks. And all thanks to Crowns. Guten appetit. Geniesse dein nachstes Gericht!

Which Crowns system were you using? It sounds nothing like the one I am working with.

But crowns are delicious.

How will I feed my children if I stop hunting them? They cannot survive on lingots alone.
