CTFZONE Presidential election
This year can be reasonably called "The Election Year". The world is in turmoil and uproar with hustle and bustle not likely to end. The time of CTFzone has now come.
BI.ZONE company is happy to announce CTFzone presidential election. The election will be absolutely free and independent — no parties or star politicians, only you and your candidate. We invite all the teams to turn into campaign offices and help your candidate to win the race.
First online-stage, Primaries, starts on 15.07.2017 at 09:00 UTC and will last for 36 hours. Stage format — Jeopardy, 5 categories. Find your trump card and keep it until the next stage — only 10 candidates will proceed.
Second offline-stage, General Election, will take place on November 16-17 within the conference ZERONIGHTS 2017.
The battle between 10 campaign offices at this stage will be far more aggressive — Attack/Defence format implies the defence of your server and attacks on the servers of your rivals. Such severe fight is definitely worth it — the winning team will not only declare its candidate the President of CTFzone but also earn $10.000. Two next teams, who are ranked 2nd and 3rd, will receive $5000 and $3000 respectively.
Presidential election are enormously important for CTFzone, therefore BI.ZONE company will cover travel and accommodation expenses and provide visa support for 10 teams which qualified for a second round (please, note that the number of players in each team should not exceed 5 people). Taking into account the importance of the event, we ask you to abide by the rules — otherwise, you may be disqualified. Strictly forbidden:
- Attack the infrastructure;
- Generate huge volumes of traffic (DDoS);
- Attack the jury’s computers;
- Share your flags with other teams.
UPD:As there are several CTF contests taking place on June 24-25, many established teams are now facing a hard choice. In order to liberate the players from such misfortune, we decided to change the date of the first stage — it will take place on July 15, 2017. Registration is open, rules remain the same. Capture your chance!
Good luck everyone!
Make CTF great again.
