Score Ranking

Flags have the format hsma{.+}. You are required to submit the entire flag, including hsma{}, for score. If a flag looks different, it will be clarified in the challenge description.

The score of each challenge will be dynamically calculated according to the number of solved teams. (-5P/Team)

Final ranking is determined by the total score of each team. In case of multiple teams with equal scores, the team that reached the score earlier ranks higher.
