Hi guys, you should read this new post (Click on JeromeC to toggle the post)
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us
Regarding the balance it is really difficult to judge but I think that overall your proposition is good.
In my opinion for contests you should consider both types separately.Maybe we could do BO3 Solo + BO3 Multi ?
A small remark regarding optimizations puzzles : for a given language if 2 players have exactly the same number of caracters they should have the same ranking/score.
That's all folks !
I was writting a post to propose a BO3 Solo/Multi but you already did it <3
Solo and Multi are too different to be merge, I guess.
Moreover, this is also the best way to represent the level of a codingamer.
@mattrero They don't have the same ranking, because someone find the optimized code before the other.
Percentage / Criterion / Submission Time.
What I meant is that I don't think time should be considered in optimization puzzles.For me time and speed should only matter in contests.
Optimization puzzles are meant to be permanent so future players will be at a disadvantage if time matters.
On the same topic I think that players who don't pass 100% of test cases should have 0 points.I mean, optimizations are usefull only when the code works, right ?
Optimization puzzle should be permanent, but not the associated puzzles (Thor, Skynet) I guess. It will change when a large number of people will have found the best code ... OR NOT
Of course, if not I’ll publish this code:
