Merry christmas 🎄 and Happy new year Codeforces! 🎊

In continuation to my previous blog, I am planning to start a new initiative on this new year. That is, "Mashups for Aspiring International Masters", as I have finally reached orange.

I am glad to invite you to my practice mashups, which I am going to start from today. It is mainly prepared for those who aspire to become International Masters (be it masters, candidates, experts, div 2 guys, div 3 guys, div 4 guys, or even an inactive grandmaster). So, the mashups will have mostly 2100+ rated problems.

I will share the mashup links through the comments of this blog, so that everyone can access it, you can also ask doubts in the sub-comments, I will be happy to answer it. Excited to see you guys at the standings.

Good luck & have fun!

    That's a nice one, but for your kind information, this is not actually my account. It's just a handle to farm contribution conduct mashup contests. And, yes I'm currently training myself for the 2300 mark.

It would be great if you create mashup for aspiring experts

    I know, but you will find many people who can create mashups for experts (maybe you?), and I'm currently interested in mashups for IMs. Sorry for it.

    You can search for individual problems on google to find the original codeforces problem, and you will find the editorial link attached there. For example, if a problem is "Bakry and Partitioning", then google "Bakry and Partitioning codeforces", you will get the original problem.

I reckon that 2100 is not enough for IM tho. You probably need some 2400~2800 as the hardest problems.

Also what is the 800 doing here

    I have started these mashups with the start of 2023, and I will gradually increase the level from 2100 to 2300 or even 2400. Also, I don't think there is a need to go as high as 2800, if you're able to solve a R2300 or R2400 problem in the contests consistently, you can easily get to IM.

      I reckon that 2600 is probably enough. 2800 is a bit of an overkill.

      Gradual increase of level is a good idea. Haven't thought of that.

      upd: oof. this is my main and that Grandma is my alt for memes.

    This is so strange, I already solved at least one problem in every mashup you created.
