How do so many players get Wordl on the second guess?

I've been playing Wordl since before it was a NY Times game and I've guessed the world correctly on the second try only 5 times. Looking at the bot's analysis, consistently there's tens of thousands of people who guess it on the second word. What is their starting guess? Is there a way to find out?

As we'll come to find out when they destroy the world, the bot is not your friend.

It's just luck I guess. However I had good luck today (2/6) and got it on second try.

by Anonymousreply 1February 6, 2023 2:10 PM

What was your starting guess, R1?

I got today's (2/6) answer on the third guess and started with the same word as usual, aisle.

Anybody else annoyed with today's word?

by Anonymousreply 3February 6, 2023 2:40 PM

I start with STEAM so when the word was TASTY at some point in the last couple of months, I managed to get it on the 2nd try. However, I've only gotten it on the 2nd try 16 times out of 381 plays.

by Anonymousreply 4February 6, 2023 2:44 PM

Only 11 times out of 236 games for me. Once on the first try. Just dumb luck in all instances.

Why would anyone be annoyed with a word in a word game, R3? And what's so vexing to you about this one?

by Anonymousreply 6February 6, 2023 3:00 PM

I always start with CUNTY, and see where it goes from there...

There are Wordle Word of the Day Hints on line, OP. People cheat (If you want to call it cheating). You can google and get three hints. For instance a clue about the word's meaning, the letter it starts with, which vowels are used, etc. You can also just scroll down to the bottom of the hints page and get the word. Some people are so crazily competitive with figuring out the word in the least amount of tries and posting about it. Isn't the point of the puzzle the process of figuring the word out in 6 tries? It's not about being an alphabet psychic.

You can cheat by going into a new browser and playing the game to get the answer, then go back to your usual browser now that you already know the word.

by Anonymousreply 9February 6, 2023 3:36 PM

OP, since you can't spell the name of the game, I'm surprised you can play it.

by Anonymousreply 10February 6, 2023 3:42 PM

Only guessed on the second try twice, I have missed a few clues too.

by Anonymousreply 11February 6, 2023 4:02 PM

Just luck. I often pick "water" as a starting word and was lucky for #2 a couple of times.

11 times out of 386 for me. Never on the first try. Iโ€™m happy to get it in 3; 4 is my average. Friend of mine got it in 2 twice in the same week

I've guessed it on the second try 16 out of 327 times, and that's usually due to luck. I have several different starting words I use and I switch them up from day to day. I try to start with a word that has at least three vowels and a couple of the more common consonants. But it's still mostly luck that I chose a good word first. Some of my start words are: AUDIO, SUITE, MEDIA, RADIO, CAUSE, NOISE and ROUSE.

by Anonymousreply 15February 6, 2023 5:10 PM

My start word is MEATY. I like the word.

by Anonymousreply 16February 6, 2023 5:26 PM

I got it on the second guess today! The bot still said my skill level was only 72 despite that I got the answer in two guesses and it took the bot 4. Wow, my score is now 7 times on the second guess.

Interesting, R10. For some reason, I always thought the name was "wordl". How strange. Is this one of those Mandela effect things? Or are you just a bitch?

by Anonymousreply 17February 7, 2023 3:18 PM

The other day I started with TABLE and came up with no 'hits.' For some reason, the only word that occurred to me was SHIRK. And it turned out to be the word.

by Anonymousreply 18February 7, 2023 4:25 PM

I stopped playing Wordl because I like Quordle much better.

Beware. A lot of streaks have ended or will be ending today. Strategy won it for me.

by Anonymousreply 20February 9, 2023 1:05 PM

I thought I was going to get it in two today, and I got 5/6 letters right for the next 4 guesses. I gambled between two common possible words and got it on the final guess.

I missed yesterday's clue, streak ended.

I just got today's Wordle on the second guess. I started off with the random word "ghost"

by Anonymousreply 25February 10, 2023 2:22 AM

I always state with IRATE. If no letters match up then second try is COUGH. Iโ€™ve gotten it in 2 attempts 22 times.

by Anonymousreply 26February 10, 2023 2:38 AM

What happened to R23 has happened to me so often I've given up doing it regularly. It was infuriating. Obviously, by the time you have four letters it's just dumb luck at what point you pick the correct fifth, if there are five alternatives.

by Anonymousreply 27February 10, 2023 3:06 AM

I actually enjoy those scenarios R27. What I do is use all or as much as possible those likely letters in one guess to eliminate all the wrong ones.

by Anonymousreply 28February 10, 2023 12:50 PM

After hundreds of games, somehow since creating this thread I've now arrived at the answer on the second guess twice in two weeks. I should create a thread about the lottery.

by Anonymousreply 29February 12, 2023 2:24 PM

I got it on the first guess today.

by Anonymousreply 30February 12, 2023 2:27 PM

R30, that really is just dumb luck, which is exactly what's needed to win lotteries -- go buy a ticket, quick!

by Anonymousreply 31February 12, 2023 4:37 PM

I couldn't believe it, R31, and I just used the word on a whim because it was said in whatever youtube video I was watching at the time.

by Anonymousreply 32February 12, 2023 5:04 PM

I always use the same first word -- audio -- because it has every vowel except E. Then I include E in my second guess because it's the most commonly used vowel in English. I've got it on the second guess very few times but have struck out after 6 tries very seldom too.

by Anonymousreply 33February 12, 2023 5:10 PM

I've gotten the word in two guesses a number of times, and even once I got it in one guess!

by Anonymousreply 34February 12, 2023 5:53 PM

I've gotten it in two guesses 20 times, but in six 29 times.

I also accidently cheated and got it in one guess once. I didn't know very much about Wordle, and figured it was an app. I downloaded it and eventually figured out the answer, but I heard people talking about the NYTimes wordle. I found the actual Wordle site and decided to reuse the word from the app, turns out it was the same word.

My one guess solution is a fraud.

by Anonymousreply 35February 12, 2023 6:16 PM

R35, fraud requires intent to do wrong, which you didn't harbor (do I type like a lawyer?). Just don't forget that it's a 5 letter word & could be useful in your future Wordle endeavors.

by Anonymousreply 36February 12, 2023 7:17 PM

Wordlers beware! For today's word, you may need luck or use a strategic guess.

I don't really try for second, I use two control words, and have had it on the 3rd 285/344 times. Using the same logic as Wheel of Fortune. Occasionally it takes a few more tries, but only once did I need all 6 tries.
