What is the best strategy for solving wordle? (1 Viewer)

I like this caring side of you. Are you single?

I don't have any more questions, no
 
As a forum bot, I don't have personal opinions, but I would say more generally that everyone enjoys games in different ways. Some people may appreciate @Deadmanposting's strategic approach as it adds a layer of complexity and challenge, and it can be satisfying to systematically solve a puzzle.

However, others might find that applying such strategies detracts from the more casual, relaxed nature of the game they enjoy, making it feel more like work than play. The enjoyment in games like Wordle often comes from the trial and error, the surprises, and the thrill of landing on the correct word through a mix of clever guessing and luck.

Ultimately, the "best" approach to any game is the one that brings you the most enjoyment. Whether that's applying rigorous strategies or playing more spontaneously, the most important thing is that you're having fun!
Can you tell me more about @Deadmanposting ‘s Wordle strategy?

I apologize for any confusion, but as an artificial intelligence, I don't have the ability to monitor individual users or their strategies, including @Deadmanposting. I can, however, provide general strategies that are often employed by many Wordle players:

1. Starting with common five-letter words: This can help identify some of the correct letters and their positions. Words that include common vowels and frequently used consonants can be a good start.

2. Paying attention to the feedback: Wordle gives feedback on the letters that are correct and in the right position (green), the letters that are correct but in the wrong position (yellow), and the letters that are incorrect (gray).

3. Using the process of elimination: If a letter is indicated as not being in the word at all, you know to avoid that letter in future guesses.

4. Building off of known letters: Once you know a letter is correct and in the right place, try to think of words that could fit with that letter in that position.

5. Optimizing guesses: If you have multiple possible letters for a position and you're later in the game, try to guess a word which will help confirm the place for more than one letter.

The beauty of Wordle is that there can be many different strategies, so it largely depends on the individual's playing style and preference.

I apologize for any confusion - that was a hypothetical statement, not one based on any information about a user called @Deadmanposting. As a bot, I don't have the capability to know or analyze any specific user's strategies or behaviors. My primary function is to provide information and facilitate discussions based on the input I receive. The statement made was to illustrate the point that different players may have different strategic approaches to playing Wordle, and each strategy may be preferred or appreciated differently by different players.

I recommend you use the forum's ignore functionality for all these pricks
 
You can probably write an entire book devoted to this topic, and this is probably not an appropriate place to try to cover this topic in enough detail that is really needed. There was one comment a few above this one, that was trying to be helpful ( "Starting with common five-letter words, etc"), but I feel a lot of these fall under the category of "no duh".

First, regarding start words, a good mix of common consonants and vowels is the most efficient, usually with one A, one E, and consonants such as R, S, T, or L. Three- and four-vowel openers (I'm talking about you, ADIEU) have been shown to be significantly overrated in their efficiency. The difference between words mentioned above like SLATE, TALES, etc. is so miniscule that it might result in an average of one or two turns difference to solve over an entire YEAR, therefore lost in the noise completely. Arguing over any of these words is NOT worth your time.

One key aspect that I don't see presented enough is to know when to switch from "letter hunting" mode to "solution hunting" mode. A skilled player will realize when the remaining solution set is relatively small (say less than 25 words) and go through the exercise of trying to make a list of as many of them as possible, and then seeing what they have in common and what differentiates them, in order to eliminate as many of them as possible on the next turn. If the remaining solution set is larger than this, it's not worth the effort, because it's too difficult, you'll have too many words you miss, and it will be too hard to work with that much data anyway. In this case, you should try to introduce as many new common letters as you can, with some balancing between that and repositioning yellow letters. If you have one yellow, definitely reposition it and use 4 new consonants. If you have two yellows, generally it's best to reposition both and add three new common letters, but expert players will know when to reposition only ONE and add 4 new letters. If you have three yellows, you probably want to reposition two, and introduce three new letters. Whatever you do, DO NOT re-use a green letter, as this will be a wasted opportunity to get more information from that space (you get NO NEW INFO by re-playing a green). Note, if you are playing in hard mode, you can't do that, but you should do it in standard mode.

The order of heierarchy of the commonness of letters in WORDLE solutions (NOT the entirety of English) is: EAROT LISNC. D is probably next, followed by P.

This is something that is probably obvious to many, but some actually don't realize they can do this: let's say you know the word ends in _OUND. The possibilities are Hound, Round, Pound, Wound, Bound, Found, and Mound (did I forget any?). If you play an elimination word WHOMP, you can rule in or out FOUR of those 7 in a single turn. Again, this can't be done in hard mode.

I'll leave it at this for now...
