    We are really sorry for the late announcement and clash. But s8pc contest on Atcoder ends just at 8.30pm and we cannot avoid the clash with both of the contests :(

          Where is the practice room for the contest in the applet ? There are only these 5 options and it is not in any of them:

          1. Tournaments

          2. SRMs

          3. TCHs

          4. Marathons

          5. Special Events

          EDIT: The problems are not even visible in the arena by their names.

            At the moment yes, it's a 2 step process. To search for a problem by name:

            1) Go to Problem Archive — https://www.topcoder.com/tc?module=ProblemArchive 2) Search for the Problem and click on it 3) Right at the end of the statement you will see which match the problem belonged to. 4) You can search for the match in the practice room in the java applet.

            Sorry for the delay, I just added the match to Special Events :)
