Level 67
May 31, 2020
Yes extreme lag here as well, unfortunately unlike some that didnt get me an amazing score ( by having an infinite amount of time to type answers) because I make typos quite a lot and if you can't see it you can't correct it. So it's either waiting after each country or taking the gamble and then seeing strings of 5 countries (several times..).

Apparently there was a map previously, did it lag aswell? If it didn't I don't see why it has changed to the current form. (It nostalgically reminds me of defragmenting the pc, which I as a little girl enjoyed, I would sit and stare at the screen for hours and watch all the lines and blocks haha (think it took about 1,5 hour on average and I'd watch the whole thing...). But regardless of lag, I am not sure if this form fits the quiz theme.)

+1
Level 67
May 31, 2020
Maybe have each country be represented by a red dot, according to population size (so bigger populations gets bigger dots), so it represent a "splat" and have them turn green or removed when guessed, you don't see the countries in an obvious manner (no outlines), just big red splats all over the map, so it does not really give away the countries, and it hints a little to the untimely demise of the people, without getting too gory ;) Though it in my opinion would be better if the dots weren't perfectly round, but a bit more well splatter form ;)

Due to several thousands of answers, it do lags a bit. And, the time taken to acceptance of answer has nothing to do with A, as the top 4 countries by population, all ends in A, India, China, United States of America and Indonesia and they have several answers in SVG, thousand plus for India and China. But, if you try some smaller countries like Australia, Armenia, Algeria, they wouldn't lag.
