these days alex contests seem to be easier
6+ problems having 1000+ submissions in div2(august,oct,jun)
compared to alei rayes contests where only 4 are having 1000+ submissions
hope the problems are more challenging this time

Hope the clear and understandable and not weird problem statements this time .

But I find alei’s problems more interesting. No alei though this time :slightly_frowning_face: :slightly_frowning_face:

I personally like alex’s problem because they are more clear and cover wide range of topics :slight_smile:

Not a very good contest. Difficulty is too low again, especially after last month’s harder problems.

Yeah you should not criticise for the contest, but the guy solved the hardest problems of div1, although criticising on the difficulty level of the contest is not a good thing as problem setters really work hard to come up with such problems every month.These long challenges are regular some are hard while some are easy.
