Yesterday, with only hours to go, COPE and the Hash Puppies came to an agreement: The Hash Puppies gave COPE all of the flags that they had captured that COPE already didn’t have, bringing COPE into a solid first place. In return, COPE gave the Hash Puppies enough assistance to secure second place. At first, I was skeptical that COPE would give the Hash Puppies good value for their trade, but it looks like it turned out well for both teams, to the dismay of SwaffleU, who held the lead prior to the deal.
The final scores are as follows:
- COPE – 30
- Hash Puppies – 27 (with a last submission time minutes prior to SwaffleU’s)
- SwaffleU – 27
- Wesley’s Unkempt Beard – 18
- BitBangers – 11
- Team 4 – 9
The game really came down to the wire, with the tie for second broken by time-of-last-submission. This was probably the most competitive semester of CTF yet.
I had a blast running the game, and I hope that all of the participants had a good time too. If you participated this semester, please email in any scripts/tools/notes that you wrote during the process of the game, so that we can review them in our post-mortem. I already have copies of many of them, but I’d like to make sure that I have the final versions you had at the end of the game.
