I would like to invite you to participate in the rated Codeforces Round #518. Date and time of the round: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 18:05. The round was postponed from October 23 to October 24 because of the ICPC Indian Online Qualifier.
This is the first competition I proposed. I hope you will enjoy it.
The round will have 6 tasks for the second division and 5 tasks for first (3 problems are common). The contest will last for 2 hours.
Nikolay KAN Kalinin and Ildar 300iq Gainullin for help in preparing the problems; Ivan isaf27 Safonov и Oleg Merkurev Merkurev for testing the round; Mike MikeMirzayanov Mirzayanov for Codeforces and Polygon platforms.
I would like to express a special gratitude to Um_nik for the help throughout the process of preparing the round and also for patience for my stupid questions.
After a lot of stupid questions...
-Um_nik: The general rule is "I'm not stupid"
This round is a thanks-round for support from Mail.Ru during the 8-year campaign!
Scoring distribution will be announced later. I wish you a high rating and looking forward to see you at the competition!
I'll be on the community Discord server shortly after the contest to discuss the problems.
