The New York Times officially takes over Wordle, stats begin to get messy

 

Some have clicked on the stats button to see a completely clean slate, with no streak or stats. One can see how many games they’ve played and their win percentage, but their streak seems to have been reset. And one of our lucky staff members experienced a peaceful transition of power, getting to keep their streak and stats.

An assistant managing editor for the paper tweeted out a link to the new URL but has since taken it down — so it may be a good idea to just hold off on your daily game for a bit until things are sorted out.
