Unfortunately, due to the new Corona Virus problem, we decided to postpone WTF 2020. In Japan, various sport events were cancelled recently (for example football matches). We discussed internally, and concluded that WTF should be postponed too. We are very sorry for the late decision.

However, we hope to reschedule the event and hold WTF 2020 in the future. We will announce the schedule again when the situation gets better.

    Probably 1 AGC in late March, 1 AGC (or 2 I hope) in April. 1 ARC on March 8.

      At least something. I expected the situation to be more like "we just spent 2 whole months preparing WTF so we have enough sufficiently tough problems prepared to put together at least an online contest right away".

        Since there was an AGC bases on WTF problems, and now it is gone, I guess they decided to keep the problemset for the WTF.

          Yes, I don't think I can write one more WTF set, so I need to keep it.

              I didn't down vote you. And I say other things in life,not others. I think you needn't to care about the guy you don't know if you don't want. But if you live only with coding,it's boring.

    +1 I rarely take part in atcoder contests. So I have a rating just only a bit lower than 2000. But my performance for AGC is much higher.

      I rarely take part in Atcoder contests because my rating is too high for ABCs/ARCs. If you can take part in ABCs and just don't, of course your rating will stay low!

      Since WTF was postponed, you'll have plenty of contests to raise your rating above 2000.

    It's a kind of "prize" for frequent participants of AtCoder. I think it's not a bad idea to do this once a year.

    And you still have a chance — we will have an ARC next week, and a decent performance in it will lead you to 2000, even if you are still unrated.

      I agree with this point.

      However, I suggest that registration should be openned for people with max rating of at least 2000. I think you won't want some participants to skip the upcoming ARCs cause they don't want to risk their chance to take part in WTF.

Actually I wasn't going to infect anybody in the competition but It's okay to postpone it.
