Geography Snap Statistics (April 2023)

+6

As many of you know by now, there is a leaderboard in every game mode of Geography Snap. More precisely, the 5 fastest players per day, per week and since the beginning of Geography Snap (not really, more like since 26th October 2020). Well, the player Changedaworld invented a points system according to the rank of a player in the All-Time leaderboard. Here it is :


1st place : 7 points

2nd place : 5 points

3rd place : 3 points

4th place : 2 points

5th place : 1 point


So, here is a leaderboard for April :

There are no new players, no players are back, and no one got ousted again.

The player who's the 1st in the most categories is... Changedaworld, being first in 24 game modes.

The player who's the 2nd in the most categories is... SilverDog, being second in 24 game modes.

The player who's the 3rd in the most categories is... Dagod, being third in 32 game modes.

The player who's the 4th in the most categories is... Sammyboi, being fourth in 8 game modes.

The player who's the 5th in the most categories is... Sammyboi too, being fifth in 11 game modes.

Now, here is the top-5 of the players who are on the most All-Time top-5s :

Rank Player Number of All-Time top-5s
1st Changedaworld 45
SilverDog 45
2nd Dagod 41
3rd Sammyboi 19
4th Batman23 18
5th tamara 9

Out of all 225 All-Time top-5s times, only 7 were improved, including 2 World Records...

And here is a leaderboard of the players who have the most CATs. Nothing to do with actual cats, a CAT (Category Association Triple) is when a player is in the same place in all 3 difficulty levels of the same category association.

Rank Player Number of CATs
1st Changedaworld 8
SilverDog 8
2nd Dagod 7
3rd Batman23 1

A total of 27903 games were played in April, and the biggest day was April 26th, with 1303 games played !

The greatest gap between 2 consecutive players in an Easy game mode is 1,8 seconds, between Changedaworld's 3,8 seconds and Dagod's 5,6 seconds, in Capitals Easy.

The greatest gap between 2 consecutive players in a Medium game mode is 4,3 seconds, between SilverDog's 7,9 seconds and Dagod's 12,2 seconds, in Countries, Capitals & Shapes Medium.

The greatest gap between 2 consecutive players in a Hard game mode is 6,4 seconds, between Changedaworld's 12,3 seconds and Dagod's 18,7 seconds, in Countries Hard.



The greatest gap between the 1st and the 5th in an Easy game mode is 3,8 seconds, between Changedaworld's 3,8 seconds and Batman23's 7,6 seconds, in Countries, Capitals & Shapes Easy.

The greatest gap between the 1st and the 5th in a Medium game mode is 7,7 seconds, between Changedaworld's 7,7 seconds and BI's 15,5 seconds, in Countries, Capitals & Shapes Medium.

The greatest gap between the 1st and the 5th in a Hard game mode is 10,3 seconds, between SilverDog's 14,7 seconds and BI's 25,0 seconds, in Countries, Capitals & Shapes Hard.



The smallest gap between the 1st and the 5th in a Easy game mode is 0,7 seconds, between SilverDog's 3,1 seconds and Batman23's 3,8 seconds, in Countries & Flags Easy.

The smallest gap between the 1st and the 5th in a Medium game mode is 2,1 seconds, between Changedaworld's 5,6 seconds and Dagod's 7,7 seconds, in Countries & Flags Medium.

The smallest gap between the 1st and the 5th in a Hard game mode is 3,9 seconds, between Changedaworld's 9,0 seconds and tamara's 12,9 seconds, in Countries & Flags Hard.

The World Records that have been the most improved during April are the Countries & Flags and the Capitals & Flags game modes that have been respectively improved from 3,2 seconds to 3,1 seconds and from 3,3 seconds to 3,2 seconds, both with 0,1 second that was cut off.


The non-World Record time that has been the most improved during April is the Countries, Flags & Shapes Medium game mode 5th place, which has been improved from 16,7 seconds to 15,5 seconds ! That's 1,2 seconds that were cut off !


The game mode where the sum of every time in the All-Time top 5 has been the most improved is Countries, Flags & Shapes Medium, where 1,2 seconds have been taken off.

If we add every time in every All-Time top 5, we get to... 2154,9 seconds, or 35 minutes and 54,9 seconds. That's 2,8 seconds that were cut off during April. And if we only take the time of the 1st in every All-Time, we get to 318,6 seconds, or 5 minutes and 18,8 seconds. That's 0,2 seconds that were cut off in April.

Since only 2 World Records were broken in April again, this section is the same as in March.


The first World Record of April was the Countries & Flags Easy 3,1s, which was broken by SilverDog 15 days, 12 hours, 46 minutes and 37 seconds after March was over.


The last World Record of April was the Flags & Shapes Medium 3,2s, which was broken by SilverDog 13 days, 7 hours and 12 seconds before April.


The time gap between these two World Records is 1 day, 4 hours, 13 minutes and 11 seconds.

Now, here is a chart showing the Evolution of the total number of World Records in April :

And finally, here is a chart showing the Evolution of the Sum of World Records during April :

In conclusion, this month has been catastrophic. April was somehow even worse than March, even though the World Record for the most famous game mode, Countries & Flags Easy, was broken. I really hope that players will be more interested in Geography Snap during the next month, or else it would be the end for Geography Snap Statistics.

Nice blog. For the statistic "The greatest gap between 2 players", it would be clearer to say "The greatest gap between 2 consecutive players" (as I assume that's what you mean.

Thanks for the stats, as always!

And well, not sure if it's that catastrophic. Maybe it mostly means that the current records are so good that they are now a lot more difficult to break. Oui, je préfère voir le verre à moitié plein. ;-)

Well, when choosing the adjective to qualify the month, I take into account both the WRs AND the All-Time top-5s. I hope that these will be improved in the next months...

Just out of curiosity, what happened to the blogs about the new game modes? I'm sure there's been a lot of improvement there that you just haven't had the time to put in a blog.

Correct, these blogs take a lot more time to do than normal blogs. I started making the spreadsheet for the January blog in April, but yet only 2/3rds of the spreadsheet are made.

Plus, with the blog change that happened in January, when the Stats blogs got more sections, these New Game Mode blogs will take dozens of hours to make. Even though I promised that the January blog would have come in March, it has not happened, but I can almost guarantee that the January blog will come in March.
