Why august cookoff had no cakewalk question?

The setting guidelines says that there should be 1 cakewalk (direct approach) question in cook off. But this time all questions were bit harder than previous cook-offs. why is it so?

I think it was to decrease the load on server! The last cook off was a mess! Submission runnning for straight 20 mins! So they put in tough questions ! No offence to anyone intended!

Well, I really don't know the answer, but everyone would do Cakewalk problem, just all of us would waste 5 minutes of time, so what's the point of having one, when they can put some hard task in the contest that can determine who's the best.

the tree game was pretty simple....all you had to do was do a bfs and the ques was done...even shuffling one was easy if you were a little insightful..it was a good set...i dont think doing cakeoff question solves anything...you should be pushed as much as possible :D

I think this cook off pushed everyone to a greater extent and it is great practice just one-two months before ACM starts. So, we got a real taste of what's in store.:P
