I am glad to welcome you — both onsite and out-of-competition competitors — to the final round of Open Moscow Programming Championship By CROC. I am the writer of this round — Gerald, ivan.popelyshev and Delinur helped me in the preparation of the problems. This is my second round in Codeforces, so far, thanks to the Codeforces team and MikeMirzayanov for giving me this opportunity again!
Please note that this round is held in conjunction with its onsite counterpart, so its starting time may be delayed. Also,
since MikeMirzayanov is very busy with the onsite contest at the moment to decrease the load (to avoid any disaster for the onsite competition), I apologize that you may not receive any email reminder about this match.
I've taken feedbacks from my last match into account, so the pretests will be fairly strong. The match should be more interesting for you if you decide to try and solve as many problem as possible, instead of stopping and hacking other codes early in the match :)
The rules below are copied-modified from Ripatti's post:
Competition will happen by usual rules of Codeforces, with hacks and score falling in process of time. The three championship winners will be awarded valuable prizes:
- 100000 rubles for the first place
- Apple MacBook Pro 15 for the second place
- Apple MacBook Pro 13 for the third place
Please remember that the round will be rated only for onsite participants and Division 1 contestants, since the problemset may be more tricky than usual (or it may not be :) ). Division 2 coders can participate, but it will not be rated for them.
There will be five problems ordered by approximately increasing complexity. The scores will be 500-1000-1500-2000-2500. Don’t forget that during contest your solutions will be tested on a small set of pretests. Testing on full testset will be after end of the round. Pretests can don’t cover all cases of input data, so you should test your solutions very carefully.
It is strictly forbidden to publish statements/solutions of the problems before round will be end. Also you shouldn’t to talk about problems, discuss some things about possible solutions of them. Let’s be honest! You can discuss problems after the end of round.
Good luck everyone! I will be watching :)
