Overview

"The World’s Largest Countdown Round" is the final activity in Mathcounts Week, there were about 1300 participants, according to one of the 20 moderators. The activity began at 3:14 PM or pi time on the west coast and ended 106 minutes later at 5:00 PT.

How it worked

The moderator would ask a pre-arranged state level countdown question. The first 30 answers (mainly, see the footnote) will be posted and the people that posted them would get one point.


  • The moderator would try to post the first 30 answers, but this was not always possible considering they were receiving hundreds of instantaneous replies. As such, the score contained a lot of randomness.
  • Moderators cannot participate. Levans did try to, and posted an answer to one of the problems, but was instantly disqualified.

Disqualification of DeleteSticky

DeleteSticky was doing really well in the first few problems. However, later in the game, the moderator said that it has been discovered that DeleteSticky was a Beast Academy professor. That is definitely just a joke, no one really knows the real reason DeleteSticky was disqualified, although it is likely DeleteSticky is a bot or a glitch in the system.

Controversy

There were a lot of controversy surrounding the match, people complained that moderators weren't picking their answers. However, moderators did write that they will try their best to post the first 30 correct answers. (Personally, I answered before the clock came up around 9 times, the moderator only picked my answer 3 times. Answering before the clock is not enough to guarantee a point)

Result

The result was first posted by one of the moderators. A few minutes later, Mathandski posted it in the middle school math forum after color coding it. link

The winners tied with 7 points were the users audio-off, CountdownKing, and SHARKYBOY.
