FAQs

When will I receive my event kit?

Once you fill your acceptance form with all the details, we will start working on shipping you your event kit.


My internet connection is very slow so how will I be a part of the games and events?

We think your internet connection should just be suitable to allow you to participate in Topcoder Contests. You can always watch the live sessions later as they will be recorded. In terms of networking opportunities, we will have some games hosted on the Slack Channel too so it will become easier for you to participate in those.


Can I experience the platform you are using to host all the events before the event?

Yes for sure, we will be running a demo event 2 days before the actual event to allow you to join in and experience the features of the platform.

How to Qualify

These exclusive events are invite-only meaning you have to win a ticket to attend. You have to compete in Topcoder Challenges, SRMs, or Marathon Matches launched during TCO21 Stage 3 (January 2021 to March 2021) to earn TCO21 Points.

Each track has different criteria for point allocation. Read the track-specific TCO21 rules to learn more about scoring and point allocation.

Members are then invited to the event according to their placement on the regional leaderboard. A minimum amount of 20 members per track would be definitely invited. However, this number may go up depending on the participation, sponsors, location and venue.
