Why do expert chumbots get all the good letters?
I am really fed up with being given endless vowels when playing against, in particular, Martin. I have just played a game where Martin was still making five letter words and scoring 54 at the very end whereas I had uuaiokv. It happens regularly and I see I am not the only person to have picked up on it. They met be randomly distributed but it is odd that they are so randomly distributed in the computer's favour!
All letter draw for Chumbots and all players are 100% random with exception of one case. If a player does a bomb and receives all consonants or all vowels the system will throw those back and redraw again in hopes of a better mix. One of the biggest difference in Chumbot levels is the tougher chumbots can used a much higher % of the word list. So the top chumbots may be evaluating as many as 180,000 words. Some also may play more defensively or not play defensively at all. Martin in particular is unique because he will try to pick weird and uncommon words over common words when he has options.
Martin & the other experts and genius chums get better letters to make sure they play like experts/geniuses.
When you play an easy chum, those chums get cruddy letters to make sure they play easy words. and thus easier to beat.
Without this tilt, all the chums would play the same. If you want to play against an expert chum, getting mostly vowels will happen. I hate it when it happens, but love it when I can still beat chums like Martin.
I agree with Bexword. It happens to me all of the time. # sandiegogypsy
It’s random. Just play more games and the pendulum will swing back to your favor.
I noticed this also with one chum I play, I just figured they were using the letter bomb option. ?
Aw think that’s true...no matter what I can’t beat this 1 chum..I get terrible letters

I have noticed this as well...at first I thought I was imagining it but then started keeping track.
I agree it seems strange that my letters are soooooo bad against certain players. What's the readon?
