This weekend, we will host the 2nd Universal Cup Semifinal. Unlike with previous Universal Cup rounds, there will be exactly one window that all teams will participate in. This window will be from 5pm to 10pm UTC+8 on Sunday, June 23rd. Note that this window is after the onsite version.

Any Universal Cup registered team can participate. If you are new here, please register following the instructions on Registration.

Register!

Besides competing to advance to the Universal Cup Finals, sponsored by Huawei, we have also prepared prizes for teams in the top 10 (excluding onsite teams in the Summer Summit) . The prize details are as follows (may be replaced by products of similar value):

Online Rank Prize for each team member (at most 3)
Champion (Rank 1) HUAWEI WATCH GT 4 (46mm) Spruce Green
First Prize (Rank 2 — 3) HUAWEI FreeClip
Second Prize (Rank 4 — 10) HUAWEI Band 9

After the online semifinal, we will host a stream of all onsite teams competing in the Semifinal at the Summer Summit event in Cancun, along with problem analysis. The stream will start immediately after the end of the online version at 10pm (UTC +8) and end at 3am (UTC +8). We will run livestreams in English and in Chinese as follows:

I'm cheering on Polish Mafia, but it may as well just be hopium because of how stacked some of the other teams are.

    Thanks for believing in us! We indeed didn't win, but we have a good amount of typical Swistakk's copium instead! It seems we were the only team close to getting 10 problems as my B lacked just one fix (3 characters) to be accepted and Marcin needed <10 mins in upsolving to fix his F. But copium stays copium only :,)

          Please don’t spread misinformation. We spent efforts to balance the contest’s overall difficulties, so that teams of all levels will have suitable problems to work on during the contest, which is usually the case for the normal unicup contest.

      How is going with editorial? Maybe you have draft pdf with ideas of solutions that you can release before contest results reports are put together?

      Also I'm wondering if editorial for latest stage 3 is planned.

    Also because we want to put contest result reports together, which might takes more time to compile.
