2020 statistics
matjazPosted: Sat Jan 2 2021 02:16 am

Happy new year! Again, I have (or, rather, my trusted python script has) computed the statistics for last year. I added some new features. Suggestions are welcome.

After many years, we have a change at the top (FexSHO, do you concede?). Morl was dominant for most of the year (356 points in March, out of a possible 372?? 11.04 points on average?? crazy stuff!), but mysteriously disappeared at some point in November, so the overall winner does not quite feel that he is the rightful winner.

This is really awesome! Thanks for putting in the time to put it together and share. I don't think I'll ever be consistently as fast as morl, matjaz, or FexSHO so I'm generally just trying to stick in the top 5. Maybe one day this year I'll get lucky and get a first place finish.

This is awesome. I'm totaly in awe of people at the top of leaderboards, their times are unfathomable to me. How do they do it!?

I'm very honored for being mentioned in the post like this. Thank you op <3

At least I actually made a list! Lol. Thank you so much for this.

One suggestion, doesn't have to do exactly with the yearly statistics, would be to see what my best finish for each difficulty is--be it placement or time. But thanks again for putting this together.

Thank you very much, matjaz. Really good and steady work. Everyone is approving so much... Greetings from Germany, FexSHO

Thanks! I got lucky that day FexSHO must've been busy. I've also been catching up on daily puzzles from before I found this site so the practice has probably been helping. My attempt today (close to an hour) was the result of getting interrupted by some window repair guys who were supposed to call when they were on their way! I think my time was actually around four and half to five minutes. I closed my laptop so the timer stopped on the game, but I didn't know which time would show up when I hit submit and I didn't screenshot the time beforehand so I don't remember what it actually was. Oh well, happy solving all!
