You mentioned your score was 5.955. But the ranklist shows you scored 4.955 in OCT long challenge. So in the end, you scored less than your friend and that’s how are the ratings updated.


Seems like you are right! :stuck_out_tongue: Dont know cc’s way of calculating rating though!

He answered 6 problems correctly. And there is no penalty for wrong submissions. So this doesn’t hold!

if you see his profile you will find out he has actually solved 6 problems so he must have a score > 5

Oh! That’s something strange. And that is where CC should look after(and answer) in why/how this glitch creep into scoring system.
