Hey Everyone,
Hope you and your families are safe and healthy.

Earlier this month we hosted TCO21 Regional Events, and in that we hosted a Lightning Marathon Match (a 72-hour match). The problem statement was to minimize the number of moves to obtain exactly C 4-connected components. In other words, each colour should form a single 4-connected component.

We saw many new members join and compete for the regional rewards and the competition was difficult on all levels of leaderboard.

The ending of the match was pretty exciting as we saw the veteran wleite edging past my316g in the final testing to win the match.

Checkout the problem statement and results here:
