Hi everybody!

Yesterday, on July 24th, we started VK Cup 2015 Finals! During the day all participants of the competition successfully went to the St. Petersburg, those who got here earlier enjoyed a great trip over the roofs of this beautiful city. And now we are waiting for a practice round that will happen in a few hours, giving participants an option to test their contest environment and do their best while solving several usual (and not only usual) problems. After the lunch, contestants will compete in the first round of the Finals that is called CodeGame Coding, where they have to write the strategy for a battle wizard.

During today and tomorrow not all of the Codeforces features will be available. On this weekend you may take a rest from writing contests and enjoy the results of the one of the biggest competitions of 2015.

The results of the practice round will be available for spectators by this link. Stay tuned!

    It tries to show Alex_KPR's blog (about VK cup) which is not available in English. Switch to Russian and you'll see. Still, it's a bug.
