    And then Codechef's CEO will read someone's angry letter at a certain regional explaining how they tried very hard to conduct an online test with 3000 participating teams but their site couldn't handle that much server load.

    I don't understand the fact that Directi (a Billion Dollar Company) owns Codechef but they still can't code up a site that can handle this much traffic.

"Top 50 Indian students in the Cook-Off who are participating in the ACM-ICPC 2018 will be eligible for ACM ICPC travel reimbursement." Why not consider top 50 of div2 also!?

    Then top coders will make fake id's and win Div.2 .

    Why is codechef hosting ICPC qualifiers for India regionals? It doesn't deserve it.

      Unfortunately, it is the best platform among all the options we have.

      This is a bit harsh. Deserve is a very strong word. They mess up a lot and they shouldn’t because a lot of people depend on their product. Still, they host quality contests with quality editorials.

      Besides what’s the alternative?

    Considering all the factors, the round must be declared unrated.

codechef seriously need a break to fix their site insteading of making our worst experience with their site.
