Only for Russian？ Will there be an English version post? I can't read it right now.
Moreover, prizes are only for school pupils from Moscow, not for all Russians.
It is always the same when you see that competition is sponsored by "Krok".
The English name of this company — "Croc" and not "Krok".
I'll argue with you. This championship was initially declared as an event for schools only. So why are you surprised now? Last year's CROC championship was for everybody and there were contestants not only from Russia (Poland, Japan, Belarus). So your comment is a bit incorrect in terms of "always the same". No offense :)
Only i need is PARTICIPATE on any contests. I am not good at PROGRAMMING. I need some experience and why only Moscow? If it was worldwide contest i would PARTICIPATE in it using all my EXPERIENCE.
P.S.: Words with capital letter are need to me.
you may participate out of competition, btw
Will be any English Problem set ?
I think so.
Yes, you will be able to take part unofficially.
Do the qualification rules apply for out-of-competition participants as well? I mean, in order to participate in Round 1 (as an out-of-competition person) should I participate in the Qualification round?
I wish I can participate out of competition with English problem set.....
It will be
That's great~BTW,is the score system of this competition the same as the usual contest?
Will online versions of the contest be common(div.1 and div.2 compete together)? What will be the estimated difficulty for every round?
BTW I like contest in the afternoon! don't have to stay up late :D
Are there going to any rated events during coder-strike?
i guess there wont be (atleast CF rounds).
well there was RCC 2014 Warmup in between Coder-Strike rounds. so i guess i was wrong! :P
will it be rated???
"The sorting rounds and the finals will be Codeforces rating rounds."
