Hints for Leg 1
Generic hints:


questions 1-10: passwords in pop culture
11-15: hackers in pop culture
16-20: objects from famous games
21-30: colour theory
31-40: ciphers. substitution ciphers only.
41-50: mixed bag

common pain points
comic thingy - watchmen. The comics is watchmen.
lollipop - its a geeky movie, a scene where the protagonist is asked a password to enter a night clib. google reverse image search, and then put password in the box.
colour boxes - the grid is a series, like word of the year, person of the year, game of the year...
weird characters - 1337sp33|<
Good decryption tools to use : quipquip and dcode
If stuck, google reverse image search is your friend

It's a puzzle :D

Actually, the link to start is somewhere on that page only, read everything carefully. Most importantly, read the rules.

Can someone provide a link to a puzzle from CTC V and its solution so that I could get an idea about this contest? I've been trying to get leads on the first leg for the past three hours, I've read the rules but I still haven't made any significant progress. :(
