"Could not contact the server" glitch
For the second time in as many days, I spent ages pinpointing a difficult location on the map, made a guess, and had Geoguessr tell me I was thousands of kilometers off the mark. I realized the common denominator was an error message: "Ouch! Could not contact the server to make a guess. Try again?"
When I select "try again," it reloads and places the guess, but it's way off. I was at this location:
and I should have landed within meters of the location, but it said I was 12,847 kilometers off.
The location must have changed when I clicked "try again," because the challenge URL lands somewhere in Asia:
There was no indication that the location had changed until I got my score. This is really frustrating.
