I hope you all had a great time. See you soon for the next contest ;)

It was a nice contest, congratz to all winners!

Also, just wondering, if for instance one same player irl had 2+ chars winning there (eg if Veeshan were to be Mobius and Astralguard), would each char get the prize?

Because well, they end being so close in the results it's as if they'd done the exact same thing....

It would only be fair from them to tell it and forfeit one of the prizes.

Shakaali forfeited his prize, meaning Nemesi entered the top3 in the Adventurer category!

I'm glad to win the Merchant category. It is a great contest. The Merchant category is actually an interesting math problem. It took me about 2 weeks to solve this problem. I tried to find the optimum solution, but it was really hard. I'll show my solution. Maybe someone will find better solution base on mine.
Addtionally, Astralguard and Mobius are my chars. They will forfeit the prizes to give them to the following players. Also I'm curious about who are the following players and  their solutions.

Eriko is one of my characters, so she will forfeit the prize.  If Sanaki is next after that, she is also one of my characters.

Sorry.

I considered writing a program to find an ideal path, but in the end I let my laziness get the best of me. Instead I made a graph and played it by ear. I needed to start with >16000g so I did arena/gathering to get there and to level to 13.
