Wrong country in country streak

I correctly guessed Albania, but geoguessr wrongly showed the answer to be Canada. It was obviously not Canada as per the attachments. Not sure why this would happen?

  • Hi,

    Could you send me a link to the result page of the game? The link should end with /results/some-id.

  • Michael
  • Thanks for providing that link!

    I've done a fair amount of digging but so far no luck in reproducing the issue. I duplicated your game to replay from a few rounds back, but I end up in Canada every time. I also did a stress-test to see if there's transient issues with loading the streetview panorama but no luck there either.

    Can you think of anything that was special about this round compared to the rounds before this one? Did you perhaps resume the game after not playing for a while? Or did you by any chance reload the page while seeing the location in Albania?

    Btw, I see that you are using Chrome, but is that on Windows or Mac OS?

  • Also, the screenshot you have from Albania, do you remember if that was the exact location you spawned at, or had you moved around before taking it?
  • Hello,

    I just had the same kind of problem with this game:

    At the spawn point, I saw an ad for a football club with a website ending with ".at" and I saw far away a shop where it was written "Mein", so I thought I was in Austria, but the guess was false as I was in the USA. In the Game breakdown, to see my mistake I clicked on the point in the USA, but there, the Street View point was absolutely not the same than the one I had before. Unfortunately, I don't have any screenshot of the initial point so I don't know if that's going to help you a lot, but I think I had a similar problem

    I remember having a black screen 2 rounds before this point, but apart from that, nothing unusual.

    Thank you for your time

  • This bug just ruined another game for me.
    Is it deliberate? Because it has happened 2 times now after I get a score higher than 226.
    I'm mad. This sucks.
    The Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India is not in a f**king Walmart parking lot in Orlando, Florida.
    I'm irate.

  • Hi, I have the same problem in my 139 country. The country was Estonia and Geoguessr said it was Japan...
    All the details are in my post "Big misplacement error in country streak" that I reproduce here:

  • Just got me AGAIN! This time it WAS France, and I GUESSED FRANCE and it came back wrong thinking I guessed Mexico!? WTF. If there's anyway to restore this streak it would be greatly appreciated!
  • I thought about subscribe several times, but this kind of errors really annoy me. If I would be a serious player I would be very angry....

    It's impossible to play this COUNTRY STREAK.
    A place clearly in Singapore and the game says that it is in USA!
    There are clear road signs and I know the city very well.
    Very disappointing. This time the game was finished at 201.
    I'll play again only when you answer me.
