Hunger games is a programming tournament.
For participating in this tournament, you should join as a participant in this group until the deadline. After the deadline you'll be able to join only as spectator.
In some time after the deadline (exact time will be published) tournament starts as a long contest in the group. At first, there will be some problems. Each day, organizers will add a non-negative number of problems to the contest. Also, at the end of each day, a non-negative number of participants from the bottom of the scoreboard will be deleted from the contest (to practice) and become spectators (not able to submit any more). Also, people that don't submit any code in first two-three (exact time will be published) days will become spectators.
Finally, there will be 20 peoples remaining at the end. We're still deciding about their prizes.
Duration of the tournament is not known yet. It will be published (it may be several weeks!).
Problems of the tournament may be copied (borrowed) from Codeforces or any online judge but we'll do our best to put new problems that we wrote ourselves. Also you may find a classic problem. To sum up, anything may happen in this tournament. Don't be shocked even if you see some April-fools-day-contest-problem-style problem.
Cheating and copying codes is forbidden(even copying your own old code) and you'll be disqualified from the the tournament if we catch you.
I think this is a good opportunity to practice and compete for all Codeforces members, because there will be hard and easy problems and good for everybody.
After the tournament ends, you'll be able to submit its problems in practice.
Currently, organizers team consists of AmirMohammad Dehghan(PrinceOfPersia) and Keyvan Khademi(keyvankhademi) but of course some more people will join.
Stay tuned, all future news will be published in the group blogs.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
