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!

Hi all,

This past week we replaced the Google Translate texts for TypeRacer Portuguese with high-quality, user-submitted texts. This is a continuation of the TypeRacer International project which began years ago back in 2009.

We’d like extend a big “thank you!” to Dudiellon ✟♔AhK♔✟ (dudiellon) for his help in collecting and entering the texts into the system. (Additional thanks go to Jorge Luiz, Gilberlan, Dan Cordeiro, Junior Panizio, and Felipe Moutinho). Dudiellon is also a TypeRacer moderator and one of our champion Portuguese/Brazilian typists, with 47,000 races and a top score of 190wpm. We asked him for a statement for this announcement, and here’s what he has to say:

“Olá comunidade Typeracer… Gostaria de expressar aqui toda minha alegria e satisfação pela conquista que obtivemos no universo Português. Há muito tempo que estamos já na busca de novos textos para o nosso idioma.  Quero agradecer a todos que se disponibilizaram a nos ajudar nessa empreitada. Sem vocês nada disso seria possível; Jorge Luiz, Gilberlan, Dan Cordeiro, Junior Panizio, Felipe Moutinho (Me desculpem se esqueci de alguém kkk). Obrigado por nos ajudar com os novos textos e sempre estar nos motivando. E especialmente ao David Valikor e ao Alex Epshteyn por toda paciência que tiveram comigo.  Muito obrigado!” — Dudiellon ✟♔AhK♔✟ (dudiellon), Oct. 15 2017

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.)

Join us in the TypeRacer Discord to chat about typing, find out what it’s like to type for 24 hours straight, etc. 🙂

[Update: A previous version of this article indicated that Vielle had eaten minimal snacks during the record-setting marathon — it’s been corrected to say “no food”.]

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).

See the replay of the 300wpm record!

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.

In August, WordRacer888 dominated with 620,240 points, coming in over 200,000 points ahead of the next racer. Chimchimchim is a long-time TypeRacer legend and we’re glad to see him back on the site and typing up a storm, coming in second out of the hundreds of thousands of users who raced this month. As for Pjayys, we’re excited to see that fast typists outside the top 1% now have a chance to win on a more inclusive TypeRacer site — one of the goals for our rolling out the Points and Competitions features. Congrats!

The top-100 are listed below. Congrats to everyone — looking forward to seeing you on the track in September!

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!
