Clash of code - Try out after clash is over

Is there a way to keep coding after the timeout in clash of code?
P.S: I don’t mean to submit after the timeout. I would like to complete the challenge and need not affect the clash standings.


No, you can’t.

But why it’s impossible, What a barbaric. After trend of “Clash of Code should be hard” it makes more sense. Sometimes in last 2-3 minutes I face with a very hard choice, start to copy examples and answers or try to solve it.

Currently after 15 min times out it automatically exits IDE. Which is flustrating when you’re still working on solution. Like you should scrap your work even if you are close to finish.

My idea is to let players stay in IDE, allowing to testing and pass submit tests for own satisfaction. Without ranking score. Timer let you know the time is over for ranking solution, but you can continue IDE as long as you want. Many cases are too hard to finish in 15 min, but is so interesting you want to finish them and check your final results even outside of contest


I agree, it would be nice to have some option to stay in the IDE after clash timeout. Maybe popup meesagebox with meaning: “Do you want to stay and solve the problem with no score”, or additional button “Submit current solution and stay in IDE”


Yeah, that would be awesome, more when you are actually trying to learn and not to score, it’s sad when you want to learn and keep trying and you just can’t :C

OMG someone in the chat told me how to do it :scream:
You have to remember some key word from the title or the description of the challenge and look for it here

Then press in “view contribution on CodinGame”, then in the website press “Test in IDE

That way you can practice it forever :heart_eyes:
