According to https://halite.io/play-programming-challenge

Submissions end: January 22, 2019 at 11:59pm EST (GMT-05:00)

Winners announced: January 29th

the final round will last less than a week as otherwise it wouldn’t be possible to announce winners on the 29th. Could you clarify this?


#4

The finals run basically right up to the announcement so, same as last year*, the finals run for 6 full days and some odd hours.

  • It happens to even be the same dates as last year.
