TypeRacer Accounts Are Here
The wait is over – you may now create an account on TypeRacer and have all your racing results recorded, sorted, and graphed!
There is also a new section called Fastest Typists. Unlike Recent High Scores, which only last for an hour, “Fastest Typists” is a permanent tribute to the best players. Sign up for an account to get your spot on the list!
You will also notice that TypeRacer is now keeping track of two additional statistics – your best race ever and the number of races you have won.
One significant change is that your overall score is now your average WPM for just the last 10 races. This is the number you see in the upper-right corner of the screen, and it’s used to rank players on the various scoreboards like Fastest Typists.
If you are using TypeRacer from a social network like MySpace or Orkut, your historical scores (the My Scores section) will become available some time in the future. For now, the main thing that has changed is that you will be ranked among your friends using your average for the last 10 racers only (instead of the all-time average that was used previously). We introduced this change to make it easier for you to improve your standing.
Accounts on TypeRacer will allow lots more exciting capabilities in the near future. Subscribe to this blog for upcoming anncouncements!
