Starters 14 ended last night, which means we’re done with all our rated contests for the month. The competition began at a stellar pace and had all of us fixated on our screens throughout. Here’s a recap of the entire show!
As the clock struck 8, 6 problems loaded onto the page for our Division Three coders. Out of the 6, they seemed to have liked RCB and Playoffs the best with nearly 9,000 ACs. Another problem that snagged the coders’ attention was Diagonal movement with its 7.3k+ successful submissions and 78.57% accuracy rate. Coming to the more challenging half of the problem-set, Counting Tuples was the one problem Division Three couldn’t figure out. After their best efforts, only five competitors walked away with a green tick for this problem.
The One & Only Ranklist!
After a great competition, it was tknguyen_2004 who emerged as the victor in Division Three. Following him was Japanese coder nawa. The third position was claimed by zerobrain, and the fourth and fifth spots went to participants pooty and noob_20. All five of them managed to jump stars to 3 posts in the contest. In sixth place, we had Indian coder rememberance. Littlepants took 7th place up. Next up was rng_27. These three players mirrored the coders before them and used this competition to switch stars to 3. On the number 9 place, we had anand_shiva_g, who couldn’t change stars in this contest despite his performance. Last but not least, in 10th position, we had coder newman_here, who gained 220 points in this contest and is now a 3-star player!
That’s pretty much it for the competition. If you were there at Starters 14 but couldn’t solve a problem, we’ve got some video editorials that’ll you find very helpful!
Well, folks, it’s been a great month. The October Long Challenge is just around the corner, and we hope to see you there, coding away to glory. Until then, keep practicing!
