I have 1517 official solves (*). So does Thom Barlow <3

(*) counting a multiblind solve of several cubes as one solve

Sébastien, François and Erik together account for over 1% of all 2441557 solves. Also, the top 1% of all WCA members have about 27% of all solves.
Awesome. More importantly, Sébastien has OVER 9000 solves!!!!!!

What's the largest un-improvement(deprovement?) from one round to the next for 3x3? Going from one comp to the next comp also counts as 'one round to the next'.
DNF averages not counted.

I only saw the end of the 4:59 solve, but he was just doing random algs, not fixing a pop. I guess he messed up and then decided that the solve wouldn't be serious anyway.

Best Worst Ranks

Stat Request is courtesy of Robert Yau.

Take everyone's worst world ranks, but use them as a percentile of everyone who has competed. Who has the best worst result?

In each event, WR holder will get 100%. Everybody who hasn't compete gets 0%. Everyone in between gets a proportion of that.
Clearly anyone who hasn't competed in every event has a worst score of 0%. There are 36 people who have competed in every event. So everyone else is joint 37th (or last).

Mad respect if you guess the winner before opening. On irc people managed to guess almost the whole list of 36 people before getting 1st place.

Random 3x3 stats.

Now that Feliks for a 5.7x today, the first tenth of a second without any results (after 5.5) is 3:00.7x. There are 64 tenths between that and 4 minutes that haven't had a result yet.

The median solve is 19.21

890 DNS
22106 DNF
818929 successful solves

No solves of 7.04 or 7.49
The next time without a result is 1:05.54 then 1:08.98

WCA Export 585 - 20150128 plus Feliks' 5.75

I was looking at some random stats from the WCA database and was surprised to find that there are only 9 people from the UK that have ever come first in a round of 3x3 in a competition:

Name

Number of first places

Breandan Vallance

52

Alexander Lau

33

Robert Yau

16

Thom Barlow

5

Rowan Kinneavy

3

Joey Gouly

2

Dan Harris

2

Jay Terrafranca

1

Daniel Sheppard

1



In fact there's no event for which more than 9 UK people have won rounds. For feet, 7x7 and clock it's just 3 people for each:

Feet: Callum Hales-Jepp, Daniel Sheppard, Robert Yau
7x7: Robert Yau, Daniel Sheppard, Breandon Vallance
Clock: Daniel Sheppard, Ryan Jones, James Molloy

Doesn't really surprise me, there are a few UK cubers who are top. The only reason this doesn't really apply to the US is because the fastest people can't go to all US comps.

Wut that makes no sense please explain.
At the time, I was second behind Louis Cormier in Canada, and Louis was second in the World after me. The reason why it was like that is that I was much better than him at certain events that Canadians are generally bad at, and he was better than me at events that we are generally good at.

Approximate example: 3x3 Blindfolded single and 4x4 average

BLD:

Person

Antoine

Louis

World Rank

110

400

Canadian Rank

4

7



4x4:

Person

Antoine

Louis

World Rank

100

70

Canadian Rank

6

2

One of these rows can't be right; the 'World Rank' row suggests he has a faster average than you, but you have a better rank in Canada!
In general, that's possible. Anthony Brooks for example even has a world rank that's better than his national rank (Pyraminx single).
