Square-1 is a tentative event. It will be held only if we are ahead of schedule and there is enough time. There is a very high chance that Square-1 will not be held because of the high amount of competitors.
Square-1 on valikuline ala. See toimub ainult siis, kui oleme ajakavast ees ja on piisavalt aega. On väga suur tõenäosus, et Square-1 ei toimu, sest registreerunud on väga palju osalejaid.

Live results are available on the Cubecomps website!
Reaalajas tulemused on saadaval Cubecompsi koduleheküljel!
