Celebrities and influencers got hooked on the game, even creating viral moments like TimTheTatman who lost it after a failed attempt.
Streamer and influencer Dr. However, Disrespect feels that Wordle is not competitive enough and gave an easy suggestion to solve that problem.
dr. Disrespect wants a more competitive Wordle
The popular word game usually allows six guesses, but Dr. Disrespect thinks that is too lenient.
dr. Disrespect was reading his stream chat when someone asked about the popular word game, prompting the streamer to share his thoughts on losing at Wordle.
“I’ve never been afraid to lose in Wordle. I think they allow you to have too many,” he said, regarding Wordle’s allowance of six guesses in all.
The streamer then gave his opinion that Wordle can only guess four times and that was it.
dr. Disrespect explained why he would like the number of guesses to be smaller, saying, “It would make it much more interesting. I think it would be a bit more of a competitive element to [the game.]”
When Wordle first went viral on social media, people everywhere posted their results online, flooding timelines and feeds with green and yellow boxes.
While there is certainly still a competitive aspect to Wordle, Dr. Disrespects definitely raise the bar.
Players who want to see how different Dr. Disrespect’s guess hat is, should try it yourself or with a group of friends to see how well others perform with stricter guesses.
After all, there’s nothing stopping players from just stopping at four guesses and it could make Wordle that much more intense.
