4. The points that you receive on the scoring platform are valid only if you solved the task and know how to explain us the solution. If you take flags from other teams of someone that is not present at the CTF location solves the challenge for you, you will be disqualified.
5. Don’t ask for hints in private. We will only give hints that are available to all the teams.
6. Submit the flag as soon as you finish a challenge. If you submit all the flags at the end of the contest we will assume you didn't have time to work on all the tasks at once.
