Nice stats! I've been playing the hard mode now that I found it, but not every day. I changed my strategy to starting with lesser used letters to get rid of them and it's working well so far. Only once did I hit the "lottery" situation and "odds and averages" helped me solve by the sixth try.

I don't keep cookies, so I haven't any stats from the site, unless they're somewhere out of my view.

Default First 100 Wordles

Switched to hard mode sometime after the first 25 wordles.

This doesn't work with hard mode but it is interesting:

Well - I missed the day I hit 100.

I've played all as if I was playing hard mode before turning on hard mode early on (maybe a week before I discovered how to officially turn it on).

I use the same starting word each day. It's not optimal. I changed which starting word I used at one point. There's no computer assistance here, just from the top of my head. I missed one when I got "boxed in" by hard mode, and had too many possibilities for the last letter. There have been other times where that could have happened, but I got the answer in 5 or 6 by luck.

The article is interesting, but it's flawed. They talk about things being independent that actually aren't - whether or not the word has an A is not independent of whether or not the word has a T - but the math works in this case because of how they constructed the set. You could have a set of 16 words, 4 of which had an A, 4 of which have a T, but the intersection could be AT and TA, or the intersection could be empty if AT was not a word in the 16 word set you were playing from.
