I always clash in C++.
It's a real handicap but I insist doing this because it makes the challenge bigger for me as we can't complete clash without integrating our own little algorithms (Case insensitive char search/count for instance or even string split)
This is why I often end being the last. When it's not the case it's just because someone forgot to reduce his Python code (= Add a reminder for that ?)
I'm really looking forward to clash against coders with the same language as me.
And I understand that I could also use other languages (It is the smartest solution now) however I don't want to compete against coders having "the same level as me" with another language than C++, especially if the level comparison will be using the general leaderboard instead of the CoC leaderboard (?).
Maybe you can also make dynamic clashes, in a way that some parts of statement changes as well as the test. You could create a high amount of clashes with that method and those who already completed many of the already available clashes will not be advantaged compared to the occasionnal clashers. This would also completely change the way CoC works but a day or another it will be a necessity.
Thanks for reading this.
