tourist's blog

By tourist, 4 years ago, In English

It's this time of the year again!

Tune in at twitch.tv/the__tourist at around 21:45 MSK, 21 Aug 2020 to watch me solving SnarkNews Summer Series 2020 Round 1 live! First I will do the round competitively without much interaction, and I'll be up for discussing the problems on stream afterwards.

SnarkNews Winter/Summer Series (SNWS/SNSS) is organized by snarknews yearly and consists of 5 rounds. Each round is a virtual 6-problem 80-minute contest open for 10 days. The series is open to all, but problem statements are in Russian only. Unlike last series, I'll be reading problem statements automatically translated to English on stream.

To make the stream more fun and for easier understanding of what will be going on, you're welcome to do the round yourself beforehand! If you don't understand Russian, you can also compete using automatic translators. Alternatively, you may just read the problems without solving them. In any case, don't discuss the problems in Codeforces comments before the round window ends.

Tentative schedule of future streams:

I might be streaming at other times too, so be sure to follow me on Twitch and get instant notifications.

See you on stream!

UPD: Round 1 stream is available on my channel: link. Round 2 stream is starting as planned, in 8 hours — be sure to join! Here is the contest link if you'd like to do the contest or read the problems beforehand.

UPD2: Round 2 stream: link. Unfortunately, Round 3 has not started yet — therefore, the next streams have to be postponed. Follow this blog and my Twitch for updates.

UPD3: New dates of Rounds 3-5 (and hence my streams) have been announced!

UPD4: Just a friendly reminder: Round 3 ends in less than 24 hours, and thus my next stream is coming tomorrow! Also note that Rounds 4 and 5 are about to end as well, there are just two days between consecutive rounds.

UPD5: Round 3 stream: link. Round 4 stream is coming in less than 4 hours from now!

UPD6: Round 4 stream: link. The last stream of the series, Round 5, is coming today in less than 3 hours!

UPD7: Round 5 stream: link (with virtual Codeforces Round 669 (Div. 2) as a practice before SNSS). This was the last stream of the series, thank you for tuning in! However, this was not the last stream of the season — check this blog post for more.

It's cool how you are doing the problems in English now, considering how much of a disadvantage it is.

I guess if they add English statements to the competition, participation widely increases...

    It was a fun experiment, but I don't think it's worth doing

Hi, I wanted to try out the SNSS rounds and hence, registered on those rounds. However, I'm getting a message — "The virtual contest is in progress. You are not allowed to participate". What does it mean? Why can't I participate the virtual contests even after registration?

UPD: It seems now the virtual contest is in progress and can be participated. Anyway, apology for any inconvenience.
