Hi, all!

This is not Tommyr7, but the impostor behind the round (guess who I am? :P). The statements are written by me. The characters in the round feature, again, the Monogatari anime series, and to be more specific, Nisemonogatari: Fake Tale. The statements involve stories with fake things and oddities, but as per tradition, contain no spoilers. Thank you, everyone, and hope you've all enjoyed the round!

On a side note, special kudos to the best impostors of the round (except me, lol)!

Any feedback on problems and tutorials are welcome -- we look forward to doing even better in the future!

Here are hints for all problems and detailed tutorials!

Hi, Codeforces!

I'm quite excited to invite you to Codeforces Round #439 (Div. 2) which takes place at 16:35 MSK on 6 October and lasts for two hours.

One of the five problems is created by quailty, and the others are created by me. This is our first round here.

The round couldn't have been realized without efforts of KAN and gritukan. Besides, I also want to say thanks to our testers: cyand1317, visitWorld, Nisiyama_Suzune, cdkrot and gainullin.ildar. Thanks for your help to the contest. Also, thanks to MikeMirzayanov with the fantastic Codeforces and Polygon platforms.

The contest will consist of five problems and it is rated for Div. 2 contestants. The same as before, Div. 1 contestants can take part out of competition.

The problems will feature... Well, let's wait and see for another time ;) As per Codeforces tradition, moderate length text and no spoilers about the actual plot.

I hope you can have fun during the contest. Good luck and have fun, wish you high rating!

The scoring distribution will be announced later.

See you tomorrow!
