WoWdle

Version: 1.6.6
by: Carnacki [More]

WoWdle, it's Wordle but in WoW!

If you just can't stand listening to your raid leader drone on and on about strats before that big boss fight play a bit of WoWdle instead. Then spam raid chat with your winning game results!

NEW: You can choose the specific game to play by typing a valid number in the entry box instead of a word.

Plays just like the original Wordle (https://www.nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.html) and all credit for the game concept goes to the original author Josh Wardle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Wardle). In this version there are currently 5757 English words to guess and the selection is completely random. So good luck!

Coding is by me with plenty of (unwitting) assistance from a number of people on the WoW forums, but particularly Fizzlemizz. Gello and Phodge. Thanks for answering so many dumb questions.

Credit also to Charles Reid and ultimately the Stanford GraphBase for the list of over 5000 words being used as the basis for the game. https://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/sgb.html

If you find a bug please report it here. Similarly, if you think a word should be added/removed comment here. But you should Google the word first because they should all be real.

Sorry, no progress on new features yet. Too busy with real life. But TOC is updated and it should run just fine in Dragonflight.

Upcoming plans:

  • Pick the game to play (you still won't know the word but you can specify a number) DONE!
  • Multiplayer - compete against a friend and see their guesses appearing while you panic!
  • More elegant sending of results and stats to friends/chat. Currently sending to gchat is screwy.
  • Additional/alternate dictionaries.

1.6.5
. TOC bump to 9.2.5
. Fixed bug where announce sent a message intended for whisper to guild/party
1.6.4
. Make Information window scrollable
. Theme fixes and improvements (add contrasttext)
. Stats on Announce Window update in real time now. Which led to...
. Fixed percentages on Announce Window that I broke last update
. Update fail counts because they weren't right either
. The win counts weren't being attributed to the right guess (ie: winning on guess 4 counted as winning on guess 3)
. And Total should be "Total played" not "Total wins"
1.6.3 Add option to choose a specific game
1.6.2 Fix incorrect Played Game number
1.6.1 Add check to announce form to make sure you don't broadcast an incomplete game's results.
