Wait, so no one is getting eliminated in the qualifier? So the scoring is just for the fun of it?

Then no more tweaking!

Huh?

Example situation for the qualifier:

Person A gets a score of 1205
Person B gets a score of 3091
Person C gets a score of 6932
Person D gets a score of 1234
Person E gets a score of 4303
Person F gets a score of 1111

Since the "closest" n^2 number is 4, two people will get eliminated from the qualifier. Since C and E have the highest scores, A B D and F will go on to round one, and continue the tourny.

There are still some things i dont understand...

Why PM the levels to the participants instead of posting them? (i already asked that, but i still havent received an answer)

What is the benefit of forming a team? Can we share our designs with each other?

Each pair of people will be getting a different level to solve than other pairs.

Two brains are better than one, and you should be able to share designs with your teamate.

And don't try to cheat by teaming up at the last moment - if you want to team up, do it NOW

I appear to be in violation of my own rule not to participate in comps whose rules I don't understand. What round is this - round 0? What's next - round "b"? Am I in or out?

Do I get to see the other peeps solutions? Or do I just have to imagine how they did so much better than me?

That is also a REALLY REALLY EARLY deadline.

Yeah a good tip for hosting competitions... entrants are usually interested in seeing the designs.

I had a 1038, but opted not to submit. Would really like to see the best 2 designs. No idea how they did it.

So yesterday I scampered to get in my round 0 submittal (in addition to my previous qual round submittal) only to find it wasn't used in the seeding. I would have moved up one spot. I feel disenfranchised. Probably won't matter since I probably won't have time to submit at all by today's deadline for round b.
