Understandable problem description +Perfect Language are the main advantages of the today's Round
in contrast to Round # 58
Problem E needs more clarification!!
Karlsson wins when he makes the final chocolates eating !!?
 and the same for Lillebror!?
this was ambiguous point.
/////////////
Question off the round - what's the effect of checking out of the round button in the right top of the standings page !?
I'm afraid that makes me out of the today contest !!! :D

When will the rating change?
  • 9 years ago, # ^ |
      Vote: I like it 0 Vote: I do not like it
    Now the rating is changed
    But hopelessly ;My rating decreased although today's rank [173] is my best rank and also today's score is my best score 1240
    I'm trying to understand the rating system mechanism from here
    http://codeforces.com/blog/entry/102
    but no sufficient details or (examples ) !!!

      Rating isn't depend on your score.
      It only depend on your place, count of players and their(and your) ratings.
      Maybe, your rating decreased because of small number of participants or most of all has rating less than you.
