The Codechef Goodie site says that on a Codechef Contest win you get (300+20-Contest Rank ) points what does that mean ? Does it mean that if I have a global rank of 50 then i would get 270 laddus ?
No. It means go get laddu only when you get rank below 20. “20 - rank” is the bonus you get.
See this problem https://www.codechef.com/MAY16/problems/LADDU/ to get more details
No i mean will a 50 ranked coder will get any laddus at all or not .
global rank of 50
The laddus are given to Top 10 global, Top 20 Indian, Top 5 school (Indian), Top 5 school (Global) (Read any long contest page for this)
So if the global 50 rank comes under top 20 Indian then you will get it. And most of the times, both of these are very close.
Laddus are awarded only in official contests ?
@sarvagya3943: Yes! Only Contests held by Codechef like Long,Lunchtime…If you host a contest on codechef, the setter is awarded 50 Laddus.
The complete inforamtion is here : https://goodies.codechef.com/#our-laddus-chart
laddus are awarded in codechef contests and only if you are in top 20 in global or indian if you are 20 then tou get 300 and (300+20-bonus)… ((bonus is your rank) <=20)
