I have recommended this site to multiple friends and have heard from at least two that they did not like Clash of Code so early in the quest progress.
“I had a quick look and roughly the second thing it required you do was join a “clash”, the requirements of which were completely impenetrable. Was not a good first impression.”
I think the Clash introduction should be a lot further down because it is really frustrating and confusing for new players that don’t understand how codingame works, plus the time pressure. It’s not great.
