Hey Everyone!
Hope everyone is safe and doing well! Praying for everyone around the world.

TCO21 Algorithm Online Rounds are in full swing. We are done with Round 1s, and with May only a few days away, we will be entering the month of Round 2s.

There will be two Round 2s and in case you did not qualify for Round 2, there are parallel-rated rounds for you to be a part of the tournament and get ready for next year.

Here are the results of Round 1A and Round 1B

Here's the schedule for the TCO21 Online Rounds:

Round 2A Saturday, May 22 at 12:00 UTC -4
Round 2B Wednesday, June 2 at 07:00 UTC -4
Round 3 Thursday, July 8 at 07:00 UTC -4
Round 4 Saturday, July 31 at 12:00 UTC -4

Reminding you again, ;) - you win a one of a kind TCO21 T-shirt if you get a positive score in Round 3?

Confused between Online Rounds and Online Stages? Don't know how to qualify for TCO21 Finals. Take a look at this infographic that explains the qualification.
