ACM-ICPC Asia Gwalior-Pune Site

1) Now according to mail 1 we are allotted a site which is fixed for all of us.
While, according to mail 2 we will get it as “first come first serve” (if my english is not so poor/if I am not wrong).
$-Now, most of the contestants will have booked tickets of flights/trains/bus and now they say its not final and will be allotted according to payment. -$Gwalior site has Cash option while pune has only online payment option
So gwalior people can fill form very fast as they can select that site and paying option as cash.
Pune people can’t.
2) They shared this mail today and google form link is open(which has option to select cash payment at gwalior site on 17th)… and they say we can register from 5th… so does that mean we can’t register today ?
PS: they don’t reply to mail.
Can anyone solve my queries ?
If site selection is first come first serve than it’s totally a wrong thing from their side.

The ICPC sites should be much more responsive. They should understand the stress and tension that a student faces due to their delay.

agree 100% @sarthakmanna.

Well actually pay the money for sites which was alloted to you on mail one . I was told when I called them that if you pay for a site for which you are not alloted, you will be not allowed to attend that site .

Okay that’s nice…
Thanks :slight_smile:
