Thanks, that was fun. I just can't solve Mathrax puzzles in competition. I seem to always mess them up repeatedly. I don't know what is up with that. Surely it will go the same as always, where I will sit down later and solve them in one go without problems.

Excellent Test. Beautiful set of puzzles. Really enjoyed the set.
Nothing much to regret except that 1 puzzle went wrong. But didn't waste much time except 10 minutes on Neighbors 2nd and Ripple Effect 2nd one.
Even I missed those steps of Neighbors which rob explained. Haven't solved yet Japanese Sums 2, Snake 2 and Mathrax 2.

It would be helpful if anyone can tell the steps/start for Ripple Effect 2nd, really, just all pencil marks is what I can put (Except few 1s and 2s in bottom left).

Rest all experience was good, down until last second. I submited 2nd Pentominoes at 1:59:59 (hand shivering while moving mouse pointer to submit button :p , because just had 2 seconds, but fortunately could submit it) :)

Thanks again for wonderful test.

Start with the 2's in the right top.

Thank you.
Actually did that, but missed 1 step , after which the solve was smooth.
I focused only at that area after you mentioned, and found the step I was missing.

i.e. I got 2 pair in R2R3-C7C8. And eliminated 2 from R2R3C9, but somehow failed to use same logic to eliminate it from R4C7C8.

That was exactly the bit I thought that you might be missing.

Loved the test.
Nice to see international authors' contributions (other than SM and PRs, not that they are bad) slowly returning.
I hope this rise continues for 2016.

WCPN-test is now officially over for more than 24 hours, so it is time to finish it in the forum too. :)

Congratulations to Kota, Hideaki and Nikola for the top 3-spots. I could not believe my eyes when I saw Kota needing a bit more than an hour and a half to submit all solutions. My expectations were round 110 minutes for the fastest solver. Incredible job!
Hans and I are happy to see over 200 players and the high rating for the test! Thanks for that!

Florian's decease is a sad coincidence; only three weeks ago we received his feedback from test-solving the set. Given the circumstances we are happy that we could dedicate this test to him, it is the least we could do for him and his family.
