In todays contest tourist solved ABC in 5 minutes. He solved C in 3 minutes.
How is that even possible?
C is not a so simple problem, it has a big complicated statement, and it takes some time to observe the task and simplify the computation to be able to do it in O(n) / O(nlogn).
Even top LGM's and reds took 8-10 minutes.
This is completely unbelievable, how can a human possibly possess so much speed?
I cannot imagine someone looking at C, reading and understanding the statement, and thinking of an approach, and then implementing it, all under fucking 3 minutes. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE !!!!!!!!

    No. He has become a god. He has transcended the level of humanity. I just can't wrap my head around someone being able to do this.

Bro just find someone who's level or abilities is nearest to yours and compete with you can't catch up with tourist cus the more you get smarter the more he's also getting smarter since he's also practicing everyday and most probably more efficient then you. He's even a guest in this contest so chill man and unmark the show unofficial in the standings page. ⟵(o_O)

Probably he isn't a human. Lets give him a CAPTCHA.

    Thats why his username is tourist because he is literally a 'tourist' in planet earth.

This is what happens when you see enough and spent efforts day and night for years. tourist probably goes like "ok here we go again..." after reading problems like C

By the way, he has it in a more transparent way. While most of us, I guess, were using lower_bound and prefix_sum. We were asking a Question: "for how long $$$a_i$$$ will remain?". "What $$$b_i$$$ will accumulate?" was his approach, as it looks to me from the submission.

It's highly probable that he has previously solved a problem with a very similar prompt, which means that he only needs to make minor modifications to his prior solution to adapt it to this problem. Since he already has a pre-existing approach, it shouldn't take more than 30 seconds of contemplation, especially for someone as experienced as tourist. Afterward, all he needs to do is type the solution, and with a reasonable typing speed, he can do it quite rapidly. Thus, completing the task in 3 minutes is undoubtedly feasible for someone in the LGM region.

For reference, I got the key idea in less than 1 minute, but I claim I would have spent at least 10 minutes thinking about the details and implementing.

Obviously, tourist first solves the contest and then starts reading the problems.

I saw him once solving problem even without looking and statement, he just read the name of the problem and started to implement solution!

C was a easy problem, although problem statement was pretty confusing to understand.

    He got a Silver Medal in IOI 2006 when he was grade 6, and then get Gold Medal 6 years in a row, until he graduated high school. So calling him "doing CP since 2010" and "came across many problems" is just a severe understatement

I don't know, but I feel like this way -> when I was like newbie, I always thought how people solve A within just 5 minute, Now in normal contest I can solve A in 5 minutes. This is because of practice. And for Tourist, I believe he has solved so many problems in his life that for most of the problem, he got a pattern so early and he implement it like he has solved it earlier.

Petitions for tourist to upload his screencast and solutions. PS: I enjoy watching screencasts of orz coders.

    I dont want him to explain anything in his screencast, just solve as if you are usually participating and don't waste any time in explaining.
    Just want to see him obliterating problems in minutes.

ChatGPT, Copilot, Gemini or all AI bots you think of can't code as accurately as him :)

He's not a robot, he's not a human, he's a god

    "He never runs the code for the sample test case, instead He submitted it directly and it gets Accepted."

If you solve 10000 problems ,maybe you cant do it as fast as tourist but you can be fast than most people
