Congrats to the January 2018 monthly competition winners!

This month’s contest was sponsored by a  donation from ⦗𝐄𝐂𝐎𝐋⦘𝘋𝘢𝘯𝘬𝘕𝘪𝘴𝘴𝘢𝘯 (osubora – TRData) — which I have matched — so we’re distributing small cash prizes to the top typists. Donations are greatly appreciated, so thanks to DankNissan! If anyone is interested in sponsoring the February contest, let us know. 🙂

TypeRacerData.com Growth in 2017 — 39 million TypeRaces!

Posted on January 23, 2018. Filed under: Stats |

Come chat with other typists in the TypeRacer Discord

Is your TypeRacer account on TypeRacerData yet? Click here to import it.

TypeRacerData.com is “a supplemental, third-party information center for TypeRacer” which is free and open to everyone for tracking stats in more detail, and building an even more engaging typing experience.  It’s particularly great for statistic enthusiasts.

Import my account to TypeRacerData.com for free

Examples of what it can be used for:

  1. Track your typing speed on a month-by-month basis
  2. Find your fastest X races, see what texts they were on, and try to beat your scores on these texts (you’ll need a TypeRacer premium account if you want to save practice mode scores)
  3. Browse the shortest/longest and easiest/hardest texts on TypeRacer
  4. View other metrics, such as the variance among your scores, and the average of your fastest race on each text (a.k.a. “text bests“)
  5. Check your longest “marathons” — i.e. greatest number of races in any 24-hour period
  6. Much more!

Launching in late 2016, the year 2017 was the first full year that the site operated.

During 2017, the database grew to include over 39 million TypeRacer races and 23,000 accounts!

This may be a small fraction of the millions of registered TypeRacer users, but it is the largest third-party TypeRacer database in history (and yes, others have been developed!) and among the fastest competitive typists on the site, it’s a largely comprehensive and authoritative record.

Congrats to TypeRacerData, and a special thanks to its founder Noah (licahfoxTRData) who has poured a lot of sweat and blood into building and maintaining this resource for the TypeRacer community!

The growth charts are below and the full data are public on Google Sheets.

TypeRacerData doubled in size, indexing around 20,000,000 new races in 2017.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The number of accounts on TypeRacerData quintupled over 2017 — from fewer than 5,000 to almost 25,000.

2017 TypeRacer Competition Winners and Assorted Announcements

Posted on January 7, 2018. Filed under: Contests, Stats, TypeRacer News, Universes |

Chat with other typists on the TypeRacer Discord chat!

Today we’re pleased to announce the TypeRacer 2017 yearly competition winners. The concepts of Points and Competitions were introduced in July; for anyone who’s not familiar, points are earned by completing Type Races (calculated as Points = Typing speed * Text length) and competitions are conducted daily, weekly, monthly, and annually, with winners being calculated based on total points accumulated. The feature wasn’t applied retroactively, so today’s 2017 competition winners are those typists who accumulated the greatest number of points from 7/26/2017 to the end of the year.

The list of the top 50 typists in 2017 is below in this blog post (the full top-100 is in TypeRacer Speed Records and Contest Winners (Google Docs]). Coming out at the top were TypeRacer stars Wordracer888 (TRData) and Deroche1 (TRData) — both averaging between 124-125wpm this year — as well as newcomer Viellain (TRData). We’ll be sending them some TypeRacer T-shirts to say “Congrats!” — it’s great having you guys on the site.

What better way to let people know you’re serious about typing than sporting a TypeRacer T-shirt or hoodie?

We’ll also be sending a TypeRacer t-shirt to the guy whose last on the list below — Mr. Jon Lachney (jlachneyTRData) — for a couple reasons. (1) To thank him for doing a great job leading the TypeRacer moderation team, and (2) To congratulate him on his 2017 typing performance (after all, #50 may be last on the list below, but it’s definitely not shabby out of millions of registered users!).

We’re offering a free year premium subscription to the other leaders in the top-10 — although at least half of them have already supported TypeRacer by purchasing one. We’ll give them next year free if they want.

Congrats to everyone, and good luck in the 2018 contest! The winners are listed below, and a few additional announcements are at the bottom of the post.

Other Announcements

We have a few additional announcements below:

  1. Typist⦗𝐄𝐂𝐎𝐋⦘𝘋𝘢𝘯𝘬𝘕𝘪𝘴𝘴𝘢𝘯 (osuboraTRData) has made a generous $20 contribution for the sake of sponsoring this year’s first monthly contest. I’ve personally matched his contribution, so we have a $40 prize pool for January. The prizes for the January competition are: 1ST PLACE – $20; 2ND and 3RD PLACE – $10. (Paypal account required). Good luck!
  2. The winner of TypeRacer Christmas art contest was been updated on the blog post here.
  3. As a quick “Christmas gift” to a few folks in the community who’ve been asking,  we’ve made two recent changes to TypeRacer universes. (1) began a pilot of a new “marathon” universe  dedicated to ultra-long texts  — currently they’re between 1,500 and 8,000 characters. (The longest texts on TR today are around 850 characters). We included texts such as  The Declaration of Independence (8,000 characters) and MLK’s “I have a Dream” speech (3,000 characters). This track is not for the faint of heart! Make sure you click “Change display format” and choose to display text on a single line. (2) The “code” universe, which features texts in various programming languages, has received some new texts. Feel free to submit texts for either universe!

That’s all for today – happy new years and good luck improving your typing in 2018!

♕ David ♕ (valikor – TRData)

In the Marathon Universe, the ultra-long texts might not fit on your screen unless you change your TypeRacer display settings to use one line only. Recommended for only the most serious typists 🙂

New TypeRacer Record: Michael DeRoche (Deroche1) completes 200,000 races

Posted on November 12, 2017. Filed under: Stats, TypeRacer News |

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 12.15.19 AMClick here to join the TypeRacer Discord to chat with fellow TypeRacers

On 10/26/2017 Michael DeRoche (deroche1 TRData) became the first typist to complete 200,000 races on TypeRacer!

On behalf of TypeRacer, I want to congratulate him on both his incredible skill and dedication to competitive typing. Michael is not only the most dedicated typist in TypeRacer’s 9-year history, but has also held a variety of records (such as the fastest speed ever in a single race when he achieved 300wpm on a short text), and the TypeRacer Marathon record for 3,097 races in 24 hours.

Michael is a gifted typist, a TypeRacer moderator and active contributor to the community (back in the early days of moderation, he single-handedly researched and removed hundreds of cheaters and helped restore fair competition on the site), and most importantly, a good friend. Congrats Michael, and here’s to 100,000 more!

Guide to TypeRacer Marathons

Posted on September 25, 2017. Filed under: Stats | Tags: |

A man on a thousand mile walk has to forget his goal and say to himself every morning,
“Today I’m going to cover twenty-five miles and then rest up and sleep.”  ❞ 

— War and Peace (book) by Leo Tolstoy

Hi all – Our friend Vielle (Viellain TRData) has made a number of headlines recently on TypeRacer. Today we’d like to introduce him as our newest Guest author on the blog — he’s going to explain what exactly it means to type 5,000 races in a day, aka a TypeRacer marathon, and also give us a bit of a TypeRacer history lesson! Thanks Vielle for taking the time to write for the TypeRacer blog and for helping us build the TypeRacer community. -David (valikor) TypeRacer

You may have heard a lot about Marathons these past couple of weeks on the TypeRacer blog. And you may in-fact have questions, such as “How do you do a race in a quarter of a minute? How do you do 5,000 in a day?” Today’s blog post will clear a lot of those aspects up, and no-better person to do so than the one that just got up after an intensive 5,590 race Marathon (you can look forward to a blogpost on that later).

To start things off: A marathon is the amount of races you complete in 24 hours. It doesn’t have to be a set time as it will always be matching your current race count from 24 hours prior.

 

Maintrack

For as far as TypeRacer history has been concerned, most races have been done through the maintrack — i.e., the standard track you get when clicking “Enter a typing race” on TypeRacer.com’s default play.typeracer.com universe. The idea of racing on short-text tracks for optimal race efficiency hasn’t been thoroughly theorized and implemented until recently starting with Michael DeRoche – March 31st, 2017. And no, there is no secret real world where everyone is racing on and you are all racing in the matrix (yes fast typists I know how depressing it is racing one or two real people for hours straight as well as having to race bots); it is never often really a thought that there is a “maintrack” to differentiate with [when you Enter a typing race], but this does become a natural distinction that is made when you race on private Racetracks [with friends].

For reference, the most races you can get by doing this is 2,000 races. The only person shown to execute this is Michael Deroche. This is about 80 races per hour. Very doable, and relatively easygoing. If you do one race per-minute, then you will that you can do 1,500 races in that given timespan. All marathons outside of the top 3 are mostly done through the maintrack.

Pros:

  • Most optimal point efficiency
  • Size-able amount of time between races to multi-task
  • Hands are always focused on the keyboard

Cons:

  • Least sufficient for Marathon records
  • Loading times

Tip: You can click tab-twice then enter instead of having to manually click Race Again.

 

 

Private Race Tracks

Now we move on to Friends Track racing methods. As far as most people are aware, you just race with friends, while that is certainly not easily-arrangeable for extended periods of time, there is however – a solution. Thanks to Ted (who also does impressive work within the OpenSteno project; steno being attributable towards some of the fastest speeds on the site, one of them in-fact set by Ted himself!) we have a script that allows people to join  races. All you have to do is install Tampermonkey. With the Tampermonkey script, when you go to TypeRacer you will notice it automatically joins a friend track and auto-joins your race. Now you don’t need friends!

Make sure to allow Tampermonkey in an incognito or private-window and make an account, and be sure to keep Tampermonkey disabled on the

account/window that you plan to race on (you can do that through clicking on the icon and then disabling it).

 

However we are forgetting something. As some typists may not be aware, TypeRacer “skill levels” dictate the length of texts that you type on TypeRacer. Therefore it is optimal if your friend’s account [or whoever is hosting the private race track] has a last 10 race average below 25 WPM [at Beginner level speeds]. This enables you to type the shortest texts — obviously a big help when trying to complete a lot of races in a short time.

 

Once you now have race-track hosting window(s) in the background you will join all of them using the friends link and position them however you wish. With this you can get around 3,000 races at most, this math adds up to 2 races per minute.
For reference I set a 3.8k Marathon record with only two different race tracks (joining the next race as soon as I could therefore stopping in the middle of the race). But you may question, why do you use multiple friend tracks if one is good enough? With only one you are forced to wait those 10 seconds, you bypass that by having another track that you can hop into immediately. But then it becomes cumbersome hence you start the race 2 races ahead of you once you just finished your race to keep the flow going.
A video for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu9i9LsV_jI

Tip: You may find watching videos or listening to music will make your races all the more faster – at least to make the time fly by faster.

With this you can get up to up to ~5,000 races [in 24 hours] maximum. Assuming you finish a text every ~17 seconds.

Pros:

  • Up to 2-4 races per minute makes this the most thoroughly consistent way to optimize races for extended periods of time
  • With beginner tracks you get to type short texts, depending on the workload you do this could end up being a more casual & easier method to race with for the endurance run

Cons:

  • Shorter texts [assuming you use a beginner track] & starting races late make this the least point efficient method for racing

 

 

Ghost Races

The last method towards perfectly refining your race optimization is ghost races. This however requires premium in order to save those ghost races.

Let me give you a simple run-down about ghost-races:

  • You can save twice per text
  • You can race on any given text, meaning you can choose to do the shortest one-thousand races [2x per text]
  • When you save they do count towards the leaderboards and your profile
  • If you mess up then you can restart until you get the score you want

If all that sounds compelling, then do consider supporting TypeRacer [along with tons of more benefits!] by upgrading to Premium.

For a good list at a text directory look at www.typeracerdata.com/texts?sort=length

Ghost races, when using the shortest texts, can prove to be hyper-optimal. Michael Deroche was able to attain 333 races in 71 minutes [4.3 races a minute]!

You may find that navigating the texts may be difficult, but thanks to Pentalon’s Python script there is an entire directory of [current] ghost race links to make things easier.
https://pastebin.com/sJFHbcjQ (Longest races first to shortest races last.)

And if you are crazy enough to do so, you can open multiple links with a multilink program or app if you really need to refine your your marathon skills that much further.

Pros:

  • Maximum race-per-minute efficiency up until 25~ plus second races [depending on your speed]

Cons:

  • Only optimally efficient until the average races per minute is beaten out by multi-tracking
  • Lots of manual clicking/hotkey usage – most error prone stage of the marathon

 

(Play TypeRacer in compact form with TypeRacer Companion for Firefox (Chrome Here) to watch videos while typing.)

 

Now that you have a thorough understanding of the three-different methods to approach you can have a true feel of marathons that puts those truly impressive accomplishments into perspective. Higher-end marathons typically use a combination of Private Racetracks and Ghost races with minimal breaks/interruptions.

While you’re at it you may want to take a look or read back on our previous blog posts:
https://blog.typeracer.com/2017/09/17/the-typing-marathon-to-end-all-marathons-5000-races-in-24-hours/

https://blog.typeracer.com/2013/07/01/typeracer-champions/

 

 

If you do ever have any questions, then do check the Discord, the resource and place I had used to refine marathon techniques beyond maintrack marathons. I couldn’t be impressed by the welcoming hospitality [of the Discord], thoughts and research that went into the carefully attentive and productive responses that went into my questions. Or simply use the comment section down below and I will address those questions myself.

5,000 Type Races in 24 hours (the “marathon to end all marathons): 24 hours of continuous typing

Posted on September 17, 2017. Filed under: Stats, TypeRacer News |

If you love TypeRacer, please consider supporting us by upgrading to Premium

Last week on the blog, we wrote about the new Marathon record —3,820 Type Races in 24 hours.

In a chat with him about that record,  ⦗𝐄𝐂𝐎𝐋⦘ ⦓☾✹✯𝚅𝚒𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚎✯✹☽⦔   (Viellain – TRData) promised that “I will do a marathon to end all marathons later in September.” For Vielle, “later in September” meant exactly one day after we announced the first record. On Sep. 9-10 Vielle beat the Marathon record again (daily competition results for 9/10) , achieving 4,892 races within 24 hours. See the record on TypeRacerData.com. 

In the TypeRacer Discord, he described his marathon as below budget and ahead of schedule. Congrats to ECOL/Vielle on setting what may really be a marathon that ends all marathons! Here’s what we know about the marathon:

  • It required staying up for 24 hours of continuous typing
  • It required skipping meals – he consumed only an energy drink between races.
  • There was only one bathroom break (post-energy drink).
  • His account was upgraded to Premium last week (as a congrats! gift), enabling him to squeeze out more races than he was last time with his basic account (i.e., he was able to save practice races or ghost races etc.)

New single race speed record, and new Marathon record on TypeRacer

Posted on September 9, 2017. Filed under: Stats, TypeRacer News |

TypeRacer Chat (Discord)

TypeRacerData.com

Today we’re pleased to announce new site-wide records by Michael DeRoche (deroche1TRData) and ⦗𝐄𝐂𝐎𝐋⦘ ⦓☾✹✯𝚅𝚒𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚎✯✹☽⦔   (Viellain – TRData).

Some of you will remember from this blog post in July that the all-time single race speed record on the site was 295wpm by Kathy (florentine – TRData). Just a tad shy of the ludicrous 300wpm barrier!  Video is here — don’t blink, she blazes through it and the video is pretty much over as soon as it starts!

TypeRacer is pleased to announce today that on Sep. 6th, TypeRacer legend Michael DeRoche passed the 300 barrier, setting a site-wide speed record with 300.42 wpm. Great work Michael! (Note: keyboard typists only — excludes stenographers).

While Michael’s typing record was set in 2.05 seconds, we also want to congratulate ⦗𝐄𝐂𝐎𝐋⦘ ⦓☾✹✯𝚅𝚒𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚎✯✹☽⦔  (Viellain) who beat the site-wide Marathon record with 3,820 races in 24 hours. Viellain started on Sep. 4th, 2017 at 9:12PM EST and did almost 4,000 races within the 24 hours following. Needless to say, Viellain won our daily competition on 9/5 (when he did most of his Marathon races), accumulating 200,761 points over the two days that his Marathon spanned. We’re pretty sure that’s a record too.

 

I chatted with Viellain on the TypeRacer Discord and asked if he had any comments for the announcement. He promised he would be breaking the record again by the end of September, with “a marathon to end all marathons.” He also stated “SECT won seasons 1” and “All hail and Glory to the Empyrean Forces, for we are the Conquering OverLords

We’re not entirely sure what those last comments mean but are including them anyway 🙂 Congrats to Viellain! We upgraded his account to Premium for free to congratulate him. We’re impressed by his tenacity and glad to have such dedicated typists on the site.

In an interesting twist, Michael DeRoche was the previous holder of Viellain’s record. Below are the Marathon leaders from TypeRacerData.com. This announcement marks a new record for Mike — while he’s being simultaneously dethroned by Viellain on another record.

TypeRacer Reaches 3,700 quotes – how many have you typed?

Posted on August 27, 2017. Filed under: Stats, TypeRacer News |

In our TypeRacer quote survey (here), 94% of you told us that typing quality quotes is part of what makes TypeRacer fun, and that you want to continue to increase the breadth and diversity of quotes on the site. Today we added over 500 new quotes; a list of the top sources is below. We’d like to offer a big “Thanks!” to the 42 people who submitted quotes included in today’s update! Their names are at the bottom of this post.

TypeRacer’s main English universe now has over 3,700 quotes — because there are six different skill levels, most users will only come across a subset of the texts. Wondering how many of the 3,700 texts you’ve typed before? Check www.typeracerdata.com.

Congrats to Khronic (khronic) who, as of today, has typed 3,207 texts (#1 on TypeRacer) – pretty much every single quote on TypeRacer before today’s update! (Data from TypeRacerData)

TypeRacerData’s TypeRacer Championship June-July 2017 Results

Posted on August 19, 2017. Filed under: Contests, Stats, TypeRacer News |

Hi all,

In our last blog post, we shared the results of the champion typists from July, which were identified using our new Competitions and Points features. Today we’re sharing the results from the June and July competitions on www.typeracerdata.com ‘s “TypeRacer Championship”.

TypeRacer Championship – The leaders of the August 2017 competition, as of 8/19.

For those who haven’t heard of it before, this is a third-party TypeRacer competition hosted by Noah (lichahfox). The TypeRacer Championship has users compete on a monthly basis for high scores on a limited number of texts (usually 3 each month), and we’d recommend it to typists who enjoy practicing and refining their skills by practicing specific texts until reaching mastery.

In June and July, Sean Wrona (arenasnow) won again.

Click to see the replay of Sean Wrona’s top score on a medium-length quote on the TypeRacerData TypeRacer Championship, July 2017:

In other news, we reached a new site-wide speed record among racers competing using Stenography software such as the free Plover Steno. Congrats to Mirabai (ploversteno) for reaching 350wpm!

This  incident also prompted us to lift the maximum speed allowed on the site before users are automatically disqualified for cheating (from 350wpm to 450wpm). More details on the TypeRacer Data Championship are outlined in Noah’s announcement, which I’m pasting below.

Congrats to the winners! To enroll in the TypeRacer Championship and hopefully win some cool prizes, click here: TypeRacer Championship – Participate

June and July results – TypeRacerData’s TypeRacer Championship 2017

Dear Championship Typists,

Another month is in the books! With the conclusion of July 2017, more than half of the year has passed, and still no one has dethroned Sean Wrona. Will someone rise to the challenge in the coming months?
June
In the stenography field, Mirabai set a new TypeRacer record by achieving a remarkable 350 wpm on the longest text of the month. TypeRacer does not even allow 350 wpm races to be recorded for anti-cheat purposes, prompting me to petition the administration to raise the limit as we push the speed boundaries. I am happy to report that the limit has now been raised! However, Mirabai’s score was not enough to defeat John, who won the month 98.91 to 97.88, triumphing in a rematch of May’s photo finish.
The prize-winners of June 2017 are as follows:
1. Sean Wrona (arenasnow) – $30
2. Kathy (florentine) – $15
3. VinceHardy (vincemiller) – $10
8. Taro Yada (yada) – Premium account
11. Loc Tran (panda_saurus) – Premium account
25. Kanto-Dream (kanto) – Premium account
31. José Ramón Vidal (jrvidal) – Premium account
55. halfbloodprince – Premium account
As a reminder, the brackets for randomly selected premium account winners were ranks 4-8, 9-16, 17-28, 29-44, and 45-89. I used random.org to select the winners.
July
Because we did not release a news update for the July competition, we kept the prize structure the same as that which was announced for June. While Kathy made a late run, eventually Sean reclaimed his lead and won for the seventh time in a row.
The prize-winners of July 2017 are as follows:
1. Sean Wrona (arenasnow) – $30
2. Kathy (florentine) – $15
3. Izzy (blade5468) – $10
4. VinceHardy (vincemiller) – Premium account
10. Andrea Ak (andreaak00) – Premium account
20. Jon Lachney (jlachney) – Premium account
43. Leo Obispado (ljrobispado) – Premium account
58. Riley (catcannon) – Premium account
August
The August Championship launched today and I invite you to participate using the Championship universe: http://play.typeracer.com/?universe=championship
The prizes for August 2017 have changed format and are as follows:
1st place: $10
3rd place: $9
5th place: $8
7th place: $7
9th place: $6
11th place: $5
13th place: $4
15th place: $3
17th place: $2
19th place: $1
21th place to the end: Three randomly selected typists will receive one free premium account.
Happy racing!
