Sponsored Marathon Matches will have points associated with them from now until September 1, 2017. The person who earns the most points from our sponsored matches as of that date will win a trip to the TCO17 Finals as a grand prize!
Points and Scoring
The sponsored matches will be marked TCO17 Eligible and may occur up until September 1, 2017. Please view the schedule as they are added.
The highest scoring competitors [among those eligible] who meet a predefined score threshold–to be uniquely defined for each problem–will be awarded points based on the following table.
Grand Prize Trip
The marathon match competitor with the most leaderboard points at the conclusion, September 1, 2017, will win an all-expenses paid trip to the Topcoder Open, including airfare, lodging, ground transportation, and certain meals. More prize details will be presented to the winner upon confirmation.
Members may only win one trip to the TCO each year. If the leaderboard winner has already won a trip to TCO through other Topcoder competitions, this TCO trip prize will be offered to the next highest point scorer in line.
NOTE: In the event of a tie as of September 1, the tie will be resolved in the following manner:
- The Competitor with the highest Marathon Match rating immediately prior to April 1, 2017 will advance. If a Competitor was unrated immediately prior to April 1, 2017, it is assumed that he/she had a rating of zero.
