    What rationale would there be for not using pio on the next guess?

    A lot of people use other words to rule out letters, etc. this prevents that

    I’m confused…why wouldn’t someone use the clues given to them from their previous guess? Your post suggest someone would HAVE to use P I O on their next guess. To me it reads like a player made a word guess that included those three letters, and hard mode would force them to incorporate those letters in their next guess. But why would they not? The yellow boxes would already let them know those letters are in the actual word, so you’d want to use them anyway.

    Some people have standard words they use to cross off as many letters as possible. So even though they know pio is in the word, they guess CHASE (for example) to see if any of those letters are in. Then they’ll guess another word with 5 new letters. Then they take that info to come up with the answer before their 6 guesses are up.

    If your intention is to always get the word, with no concern for how many guesses, this is the best method(unless you happen to hit on 4 or 5 of the letter randomly and the word is obvious).

    If your intention is to get it in as few guesses as possible, "hard" mode is actually the preferred method, except in certain cases.

    Take a look at my guesses from today on the alt site:

    Hard mode prevents me from doing that.

    Yea I get it now. Is that really a more efficient process? My mind went straight just finding the green box for the yellow boxes. But my brain is not made for logic stuffs.

    Less efficient, more consistent. Personally it takes the fun out of it for me. I was playing the game naturally in “hard mode”.

    Yea, today was my first time playing. I feel like the other way isn’t any easier. But maybe that’s bc the fun to me was trying to guess it as soon as possible, so my mind didn’t even think to waste a turn on a word I knew wasn’t correct.

    It's definitely better for solving it. If you get "THE" right as the first three letters after two guesses what's your plan?

    oops sorry you're dead.

    But if you went with MUSIC you might be able to narrow it down quite a bit

    I am starting to play “double” hard mode, using the game’s hard mode plus starting with the previous day’s correct answer. It’s not that much harder but definitely more of a challenge.
