admins when is ctc gonna end???
and results will be declared???
brute force substitution?
@Anorion There's a typo on the homepage in the slides how that says Lucy instead of Lucky
I've ran it through some tools, they didn't work. Are we doing it right by substituting the symbols with letters?
yup, would work my way up by feeding in more right letters in something like quipquip
Already noticed it during leg4... thought it might be a hint to something in leg4... but leg4 was a different game altogether...
@Anorion What exactly do you mean by " More Right Letters " ??? Can't seem to get anything...
Before leg 1 started. I thought it would be a hint as well.
You Sure ???
Cuz I think this typo wasn't there when CTC started out....
It has been there since the start.
it was originally supposed to be a clue, but they did not end up doing it in the end
CTC is going to end on July 13
Prizes and other details are still being worked out
Did you guys team up with Comicstaan or what xD
Can you post a version with accurate spacing?
A BCD EFG CHH IFJ IK L
LI AI FHM NIF OHL
PI MI AG JI JB LJIE
CGM PJ LIQ QIE
the spacing is accurate
it is not syllables, just plain old text
there is a twist though
hint: the twist subverts one of the most basic approaches of solving substitution ciphers
1. does this twist explain why you have so many two letter words together?
2. do the letters map to a meaningful english sentence or some non grammatical sentence?
2. yes, a meaningful sentence that explains the twist itself
Man was i happy to br on the magazine!
