C137's blog

By C137, history, 7 months ago, In English

Before Today's round I took part in 197 rated rounds, and I was hoping to mark my 200th round by becoming a master, however my hopes failed as I became master in Today's Round <3 <3 <3

I have been doing CP since February 2015, more than 5 years. Finally today I reached master, I wanted to share this blog with you because I see a lot of times some users say I am not advancing, my rate doesn't change, I am stuck in rate... Believe me in the end everything will change, just be patient and keep believing in your self ;)

You can take a look at all ups and downs in my graph, I didn't reach this level easily, It just takes time.

Happy coding all, I hope you will reach what you want soon.

When you're Div. 1 ONLY, it makes a huge difference. I think you'll find that out soon enough. I got my first Master a year ago and only now I'm starting to advance further.

      No, don't quit. Writing rounds is the best you can do at this point (either virtual participation or real rounds).

        No you got me wrong, sure I will continue doing virtual and Div.2 rounds, I just need to start the round with Div.1 B not Div.2 A like I used to, In this stage I guess solving fast is very important.

Would you please tell me your practicing approach ?? Like, how many hours a day you trained yourself, what types of problems did you solve on a regular basis?

    Just kidding, anyway here is my approach:

    • First part of my training was about learning new topics, I used LightOJ for this, this site has a very organized categories, when I want to learn something new for example game theory, I used to google and read different articles about this topic but the problem with such articles they just suggest interesting and hard problems for practice, in LightOJ you can find problems in every level, from the standard easy problem, to medium and hard in the end. I used this method in my first 2-3 years, however anyone can make it in much shorter time.

    • Second part was about practicing things I already know, that was a little more difficult, every time I wanted to solve problems I got bored after ~30 minutes and I end up reading the editorial, to solve this problem I started to take part in more rated rounds, in rated round you can't stop because your rating will drop much, and you don't have editorial to read. This method worked well with me as now I have much time to think in hard problems, of course upsolving after the contest is over is very important.

          Eva is indeed Eva Krauze. I had a precious oppurtunity to meet her during a music show.

            Nope, this Eva is obviously not that singer Eva Krauze, Have you seen her Instagram? All she do is butchering songs, roaming around with friends all day and taking silly/cringy pictures (her IG is full of this shit), how can someone have time for coding after all this, she is definitely not that singer, feel free to downvote, I dont care, but this is the bitter truth. Period.

            PS. Eva is just a fake account handled by a psycho MAN.

              Yeah, that's an obvious fact ig.

              Plus I don't get the thing why everyone's so busy talking about them and grabbing their attention.

              It's cringy.. What if I change my username and pretend to be a celeb & then everyone post their selfie with my codeforces profile. It's of that level to me.

              There are several other sites where it can be done in privet. #StopThisCringe.

          What could I say? These days, when purples can participate in div2s and edus, when there are 3 times more participants than in 2018 and one gets 2-3 times more rating for a good performance, every indian can become a master

            I agree with the rating inflation thing, but why the generalisation for Indians?

                In 2018 I used to see oranges few times. Now-a-days it seems like almost every comment section (except contest announcements and editorials) is full of oranges.

                Its simple because , nowadays having good CP profile helps to get good future and also more opportunities . And people in India are coming to know about it .

                Although many don't have any cp experience until secondary (12th), But still many people make upto grand masters/ masters from basic in period of graduation in about 1-4 year (depending upon their capacity).

                On drawback , alot of people cheats to achieve a certain rating in short period of time . (i know even few masters who do it)

                That is because CP is still gaining puopularity among indian crowd.In some years,hopefully,you will see a lot of red indian coders.

                1. Indians are neither Asians nor Black, the term for their race is "Brown".
                2. Not sure what was on your mind before writing the comment above, but definitely you're a retard. Get well soon.
