Code Knights Round 6 Results and Problem Analysis

Assalamualaikum everyone,

Last Saturday, the 6th round of Code Knights was held, with a total of….. 17 participants. Same as last round, which is also the same as the round before. This round is significantly harder than the last round, which was the easiest round by far.

Selection_094
It looks like only 12 participant, but actually there are 5 more down below which tried, but did not manage to solve any problems…

How hard? Well.. if you compare it to Round 3, its.. OK-lah. The winner for this round goes to anas_95 from IIUM, who also won last round. anas_95 was the only participant who manage to solve 4 problems, but he did not solve problem D. It’s nice to see someone from IIUM winning again, but its starting to get boring. Can someone else win next time? stdLn maybe? Heck, I’m even waiting for lim2481284 to make a comeback.

Assalamualaikum everyone,

Last saturday, Code Knights Round 5 was held with a total of 17 participant… which is pretty much the same with round 4.

Code Knights Round 4 Results and Problem Analysis ?>

Code Knights Round 4 Results and Problem Analysis

Update: Announcement for round 5 is out.

Assalamualaikum everyone,

Last Saturday 8 PM (as usual), Code Knights Round 4 was held at… online. This time, we have 17 contestant including several new participant from UM, UTAR, UKM and others. lim2481284, the winner of the last 2 round seems to have lost his edge, finishing at the 14th place. He is probably busy and have other stuff to do.   Meanwhile, shahril, the consistent second-finisher did not participate this time, breaking his consistent-second-place record from the first round and leaving HarshRalph to represent UiTM. The winner for this round goes to a newcomer, foreveralone from UM. He is a newcomer in a sense that he just registered in Code Knights, but not in the sense that he is new in competitive programming. Interestingly joscmw95 actually solved all problem first, but he submitted more wrong submission than foreveralone, resulting in an extra 13 minute penalty compared to foreveralone (each score point is approximately 1 minutes).

Who in the world is capayam? Tell him if we don’t get his phone number, we will ban him.

As you can see in the scoreboard, all problem was solved. Unfortunately, no single question was solved by everyone. Three participant managed to solve all 5 problems. All of these three participant are new participant. The difficulty of the problems this time seems to be more towards the easy side, but then again, if foreveralone, joscmw95 and UncleWong did not participate, (remember, they were new participant) no one would solve all 5 problems… except for lim2481284 or shahril (if they actually participate). In terms of balance, we probably need to work on making the difficulty ‘spread out’ more. Additionally, there were some issues with problem C and D.

The problemset can be downloaded through the link above. As usual, for IIUM student, the problems can also be accessed from the IIUM ICPC Team codeforces group. Now, if only they would actually practice, that would be great…. On to the problem analysis!
