The scoring algorithm is the method used to rank teams.
How teams are ranked
Each contest has its own rules about how the teams are ranked. This article describes the default way that PC² ranks teams.
Teams are rank based on the following:
- team solving most problems
- tie-breaker: lowest penalty points
- tie-breaker: fastest last yes judgement run
The default scoring algorithm accumulates penalty points for solved problem thus:
No penalty points for all submission for problems which are not solved.
No penalty points for any runs a problem that is not solved.
In this example team5 has solved 3 problems with 460 penalty points.
Penalty points for Problem A: 0 (not solved)
Penalty points for Problem B: 65 = 45 + (20 * 1)
Penalty points for Problem C: 215 = 215
Penalty points for Problem D: 180 = 140 + (20 * 2)
