The ratio of registered candidates and those making at least one submission is bad. Only 9249 out of 21518 will be rated; this leads to either a very small increase in the rating of players rated below 1400.

Codeforces Round #853 (Div. 2) out of 24262, 7432 candidates will be rated.

Codeforces Round #852 (Div. 2) out of 25361, 9339 candidates will be rated.
