By farmersrice, history, 6 months ago, In English,

Just curious as to what you guys like to do. Personally, I enjoy playing go/chess and a variety of other games, and listening to music that has 0 correlation with my actual life. (hmu if you want to play go or chess)

  1. Sports: table tennis, badminton, football

  2. Escape rooms (apparently I visit Polish site with escape rooms database more often than any other website even though basically nothing is changing there)

  3. Video games. Recently I got severely addicted to Rocket League (if anyone here plays it as well hit me up on Steam (I'm Swistakk there as well)), but I am devoted fan of Captain Claw as well (2D platform game from 1997)

  4. Listening to Taylor Swift

  5. Various kind of competitive puzzles, for example like solving sudoku as fast as possible but other kinds (kakuro, tapa, akari, hashi and many many more), since sudoku is hella boring (I'm not that good though, but I really enjoy them)

    Do you know about http://www.gp.worldpuzzle.org/content/puzzle-gp? They hold puzzle competitions about once a month (unfortunately, this year's season is over), you can find a couple familiar names from CodeForces in the standings.

    EDIT: Somehow I missed you, guess my Ctrl-F skills are not that good.

      Yeah, I've seen it ;). You got much better results than me ;). However I didn't get a chance to participate in many of these, something like 2 or 3 so far only.

      Sure it does! Go to https://captainclaw.net/en/downloads.html and download the newest version (first link). If at any point you get some warning about hypothetical threats and viruses and so on then you can safely ignore them (they sometimes pop up since this is fan modified version where some machine code was changed, but everything is completely safe). If you need some help with setting tit up then go to our Discord (link on the left side) and mention @MentionForClawHelp.

1) Pocket Legends

Been playing on off for a few year.

I have the username "thebatbearx" which is a nooby seeming username, but when im on my phone I destroy unsuspecting pvpers. Like some people attack me for no reason other than my noob seeming get up (I often take off my "pro" gear and put on uglier outfits to bait people) and get stomped.

Also, I once effectively 1v2 some skrubs (who thought they were so cool because they were teaming) by hiding behind indestrucitble obstacles (trees lol) to regen my health/buffs while they kept coming at me one at a time.

Haha, good days. I quit again though.

    I think someone should propose a contest whose theme is about dota2.

      I've set 5 problems about Dota 2, but they all are in different contests.

      It's very hard to create a set of interesting problems on one specific theme simultaneously. So I'll update this list when I create another problem about Dota 2.

      Also, ashmelev is known for his gaming-related problems — I think he has something to add here.

          At Kharkiv Winter Programming School 2014 my contest problems were mostly related to Dota2. Just see gyms 100374 (junior league) and 100375 (high league). I hope you enjoy samples for problem H :)

          However problem L has buggy tests still...

    Cool!

    It would take me one hour to solve one face of the cube, leave aside the whole cube. ;P

    I would rather make some portrait sketches and read quora.

        C'mon, don't lie yourself anymore, you are listening to that band day and night.

        Why are you still lying to yourself. Everyone believes me, because of my reputation.

          I don't really like lying so i rarely lie, and i'm straight so it makes sense that i would like boy bands more than girl bands xxD

          ps: that doesn't mean that i don't like girl bands, i just prefer boy bands and solo female singers xxD

Lately I enjoy CTF competitions just as much as cp ones. It's just that community is not as big as cp for now. I would totally suggest it to anybody here.

  • First and foremost, spending time with my cat (pictured). Not sure if it counts as a hobby.
  • Sports: Weightlifting, playing and watching basketball. Sometimes I try to run.
  • Games: Currently lots of Rocket League and Puyo Puyo. I also enjoy single-player stealth games; I'm a big fan of the Metal Gear series and recently have been playing through The Last of Us.
  • Outdoors: Camping, hiking, backpacking, photography. Less of this since moving away from California to New York City a couple months ago.
  • I'm learning how to make espresso right now after recently obtaining the necessary equipment and some books.
  • Music: Mostly hip hop, indie rock, indie pop. My most listened-to artists on Spotify from last 6 months: Glass Animals, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Kanye West, Arctic Monkeys, Young the Giant, alt-J, Foster The People.
