Hello codeforces!

About 10 months ago,I reached Expert after two years of practicing (well , I wasn't really practicing then )

But since being an expert , I nearly didn't miss a contest unless I wasn't able to participate , but I'm still going up and down in expert (and sometimes specialist too) , and I reached a rate more than 1800 only once, although I have some contests with a master performance.

And unfortunately, I accepted Ali_Zaiback 's challenge that if i don't reach purple before the first of November(which is very soon) , he will upload a post on facebook laughing on me ):

Well, I don't really care about the post, but I want to reach purple before 2023.

So can I have some advices please ?

Thanks !

    Sure bro, you will definitely reach expert till december, just be more cautious while copy pasting other's solutions otherwise your submissions will get skipped just like they got skipped in last contest (Codeforces Round #824 (Div. 2))

          i think CF skips all codes if one was copied, doesn't mean they did copy A and B

        Yup i saw . You already have enough to get it there. Starting from pure pupil to expert is really hard .

          even if it was impossible, there's no reason to talk like that to anyone, the goal is utterly unimportant here, if they reach it, awesome! if they don't, they tried and maybe they got to a different color.

          but if there are 4 contests in a month, then it will be a little bit harder because then you have to perform good in every contest. i am fine with it.

The best solution is to sell your laptop and look for a new hobby that is completely outside the field of computers. because this field is not suitable for weak people like you. I won't be able to bully much since I'm an expert now unfortunately :(

This won't be life changing or something all of a sudden but an important tip is to practice more questions around and over the mark you are trying to reach.
For example I see you have an absolutely huge number of 800 questions solved, and only ~15 questions rated 1900, that number should be a lot higher. You should do much more 1900 — 2100 rated problems.
The difference between a person struggling to reach/stay 1900 and someone who is stable at 1900+ is the ability to consistently (and for extra bonus, quickly) do problems rated upto 2100, so a good step towards your goal is — Go out, upsolve ALL the problems in recent contests which fall in this range, give virtual contest and make sure whether it's during or after the virtual, that you solve upto D, and E if it's $$$\leq$$$ 2100

    I think the number of 800 points is a bit inflated by contests (because Div2A is pretty much always 800) and problems that were solved a long time ago.

I think virtual contests + upsolving are the way to go since you are inconsistent with your performance, I also suffer from this problem since I don't do contests that often. so I'll be using this strategy for the next month if you would like to join me :)

Maybe its because, you've solved very less (>1600) rated problems on CodeForces.

As I have seen in YT videos of some high rated participants, they recommend 40 problems of each rating level till (your target + 200). That would be 40 problems each of rating 1500 to 2100.
