How do you overcome restriction of attending same university? Or do you plan to move to attend same school :P?

      And you expect third person to move there as well, right :P? I am of course ineligible either way, but that seems like a serious requirement that almost nobody is willing to fulfill.

        You simply don't have the right attitude. If you are really focused on success, you will do anything. At least I think so.

        Yes, we understand it. It will be great if it is almost nobody. We need only one person after all.

          Out of curiosity , what rating (or some other feature) do you expect the person to possess.

            It is in Russian version of the post, but since you asked I will translate:

            • At least stable div.1 (the higher rating the better)
            • Some "unique features" like strong mathematical background or deep knowledge of some areas (like you with FFT problems, if I'm not mistaken)
            • Knowledge of Russian :(

              • No comments on first because everyone knows thats not happening.

              • For me second point makes sense because only then it can add some epsilon value to your team. Also, you are mistaken I am nowhere with FFT (more generically math:( ).

              • I dint expect it (Unless for some rules sake, My expectations were you should be comfortable with English ).

              Hope you get Gold (If it seems too straightforward :) , obviously I bet for a win for you with some good odds!!).

                Well, I'm not. It is hard to explain my thoughts in English, and even harder in spoken form. And even if I was good at English it still will be not convenient to do CP in foreign language.

    If Radewoosh spoke Russian, he would really have a hard choice here. I and mareksom retired and he doesn't have possible strong teammates now.

      There is no such rule even in Russian version of the post, in English version there are no rules at all, because I was sure that no one will move to Russia (still think that most of these are jokes, most...)

Which rules is Um_nik trying to work around by changing university as stated here? In my country the rule is that you can go twice to WF and going to another university does not change that.

Since this post has got unwanted attention from some clowns I want to clarify some things.

  1. I like good jokes, but this matter is important to me.

  2. I thought that it won't be interesting for people outside Russia, so in English version I just stated the fact about our team.

  3. If you want to do some funny things like "haha, I'm a gray Indian guy, surely they want me in their team" then feel free to do this here, I'm sure that everyone will upvote you.

  4. If, on the other hand, you are really interested in joining us, please write me (or KAN) in PM here or anywhere else. I prefer Telegram (@Um_nik). I'm embarrassed to answer some people who are obviously joking here in comments, but they also can be embarrassed to write a comment which is serious. I don't want to miss opportunity of getting good teammate (see 1).

  5. If you are really interested in joining us, but you think that you do not satisfy some criteria (knowing Russian, for example), you can still write PM.

If I'm not wrong it's not mandatory for a team in ACM-ICPC to necessarily consist of 3 members. So I wonder why do you guys even need a third member ? :P

You are yourself enough to win the season or it's like you want to share your prize money XD

      My bad, last year in India it was allowed. Even there were a few teams in the India Regionals but none of them advanced to the world finals.

      Thanks for telling me this. This year even Its not allowed in India
