There is a new contest starting tomorrow called “SnackDown 2017 Online Elimination Round Replay”.
Can someone please tell me what it is about?
Will it have the same questions as the elimination round?
Is it a team contest? If so will all teams be able to participate or only the one’s that have qualified to the elimination round?

Hi, the contest will contain the same problems as that of the Elimination Round and anyone can take part in it. Note: It is not a team contest.

#5

@admin
One can see someone’s AC solution of Elimination round which held yesterday. So this replay round is of no use as every one has problem solution prior to the contest.


#7

Maybe it's, Show your speed and get a T-shirt.;)


#8

Many have already solved all the problems. What’s the point of this contest?


#9

Same question here as well.


#10

It is written in the description that Top 3 will get snackdown shirts while solutions from today’s elimination round are still public.


#11

Thanks. @admin please reply to this.

To the users who upvoted him - We are trying to do away with system of sympathy upvote due to potential exploit. Please try to refer them to the thread instead of giving free upvotes. If the account turns out to be fake/karma farming, then you people will have no defense/valid reason on upvote given (which allowed the account to do malpractice).


#14

We need to keep bumping that post of yours every now and then so people know that it exists. or maybe codechef needs a feature to show “pinned” posts or something like that.


#15

I am talking to them regarding that…they are currently slow at getting back/replying back :confused:


#16

Ah, i hope they do something about it soon.


#17

Yes, anyone can.


#18

Exactly …


#19

That’s indeed what this Replay round has reduced to, for some at least. Have a look here - https://www.codechef.com/rankings/SNEL17RP
