On this page we offer the WCA results for download in several formats so you can use/analyze them at large. We will usually update after each competition weekend when the results are finalized. The files are numbered and dated so you can see whether you have the newest version already.
Export of the World Cube Association results database Date: February 20, 2017 Remarks: none Contact: WCA Results Team firstname.lastname@example.org Website: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results Description: This file contains public information on all official WCA competitions, WCA members and WCA competition results. Goal: Goal of this file is for members of our community to do analysis on the information for statistical and personal purposes. Allowed use: Information and parts of it may be published online, but only under the following conditions: - A clearly visible link to World Cube Association website is added (https://www.worldcubeassociation.org) with the notification that World Cube Association is the source and owner of the information. - A clearly visible notification is added that the published information is not actual information. - A clearly visible link to https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results is added with the notification that the actual information can be found via that link. - A clearly visible notification which date is taken for the source of the data. - The style and format of the information must be clearly distinguishable from the official WCA website Software created by: Clément Gallet France Stefan Pochmann Germany Josef Jelinek Czech Republic Ron van Bruchem Netherlands The export consists of these tables: Persons WCA competitors Competitions WCA competitions Events WCA events (Rubik's Cube, Megaminx, etc) Results WCA results per competition+event+round+person RanksSingle Best single result per competitor+event and ranks RanksAverage Best average result per competitor+event and ranks Rounds The round types (first, final, etc) Formats The round formats (best of 3, average of 5, etc) Countries Countries Continents Continents Scrambles Scrambles Most of the tables should be self-explanatory, but several things merit further explanation. Countries stored include those from the Wikipedia list of countries at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries, and may include some countries that no longer exist. The ISO2 column should reflect ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country codes, for countries that have them. Custom codes may used in some circumstances. Result values of the Results table can be interpreted as follows: - The result values are in fields value1-value5, best and average. - Value -1 means DNF - Value -2 means DNS - Value 0 means "nothing", for example a best-of-3 has value4=value5=average=0 - Positive values depend on the event, see column "format" in Events. - Most events have format "time", where the value represents centiseconds. For example, 8653 means 1 minute and 26.53 seconds. - Format "number" means the value is a raw number, currently only used by "fewest moves" for number of moves. - Fewest moves averages are stored as 100 times the average, rounded. - Format "multi" is for old and new multi-blind, encoding not only the time but also the number of attempted and solved cubes. Writing the value in decimal it is interpreted ("decoded") using the following method: old: 1SSAATTTTT solved = 99 - SS attempted = AA timeInSeconds = TTTTT (99999 means unknown) new: 0DDTTTTTMM difference = 99 - DD timeInSeconds = TTTTT (99999 means unknown) missed = MM solved = difference + missed attempted = solved + missed In order to encode data, the following procedure should be followed: solved = # cubes solved attempted = # cubes attempted missed = # cubes missed = attempted - solved DD = 99 - (solved - missed) TTTTT = solve time in seconds MM = missed Note that this is designed so that a smaller value means a better result. This format does not allow for more than 99 attempted cubes, or for times greater than 99999 seconds (about 27.7 hours).
