24th Dec, 12:40 PM IST: In the problem ALIENCOW, the testdata was found to be wrong after the contest. The testdata has been fixed, and all submissions of both the live contest and the replay have been rejudged.
In the live contest, 4 teams have been affected, among which 2 teams have their AC turned into WA and 2 other teams have their WA turned into AC. The ranklist has been updated accordingly.
Note: If the two ACs had not been turned into WA, but kept as it is, even then, the ranklist of the live contest would be the same as the new ranklist.
