The return of the biggies

2 min read

The SnackDown 2015 was now over. However, the programming season had just arrived on planet CodeChef. We were almost a month away from the IOI 2015 world finals, followed by the arrivals of ACM ICPC regionals. So, every contest from here onward was going to be an imperative part of the preparations for these global competitions. And everyone was ready to press the pedal on their preparations to make sure that they are ready. The problem set from two time medalist at IOI (2012 & 2013), Roman Furko ensured that the participants get what they came for. While we ensured that the contest had a smooth proceeding. And it’s safe to say now, that everything went pretty well. So, let us take you through the proceedings to give you the complete contest report for our June LunchTime 2015.

The problem set of Roman was thoroughly tested by another IOI medalist, Sergey Kulik, who has been a part of enough LunchTime contests now, to understand what it takes to make a good contest. And the fact that CHEFSTLT was cracked inside the first two minutes of the contest, establishes that our problem setting panel has served a scrumptious contest. With that we were set on course to an exciting contest, which saw the return of many familiar names on the rank tables and few new ones to complement them.

The first 50 submissions of June LunchTime 2015 hinted towards interesting proceedings for the contest with all the big names including lebron, gdisastery1, meteora, yutaka1999 and many other making an early appearance on the rank table. And inside the first five minutes of the contest we had two different problems solved. While, azukun became the first to crack CHEFSTLT, gdisastery1 cracked CHEFAXR. The flow of submissions was steady across all the problems with CHEFSTLT getting most of the green ticks. And with every solved problem the picture atop the rank table was getting clearer. However, it still was not easy to establish a clear winner till the very last moments of the contest.

The toppling and tumbling on the rank table continued till the very last moments of the contest with frequent changes in the names occupying the top slots. However, most of them were occupied by the familiar faces in yutaka1999, ptnk131627, tanay1998, and meteora. And there were few new ones in farbody, mrho888, allllekssssa and some others. To have such a good mix of new and familiar names occupying the rank table is always a pleasing sign. And now let us introduce you to the complete rank table of our June LunchTime 2015.
