-You must be ready to compete when your group starts. You need to be present at the venue during the events in which you plan to attend.

Tutorial for new competitors

We will have a demonstration showing how the competing process works on Saturday morning before the first event begins, but we highly recommend watching this video to get a good understanding of how solving in competition works. Reading through this guide is also a good idea since it shows most things a competitor needs to know.

It is also important that you read through the WCA Regulations so that you are aware and familiar with the lastest WCA Regulations.

Remember that you only need to be at the venue when you have an event to compete in, but since the schedule might change slightly throughout the competition, we recommend showing up at least an hour before your first event.

Throughout the competition, you will be able to see live results from Cubecomps.com, and there you can see what results you got and whether or not you proceeded to the next round.

If you have any questions, feel free to email one of the organizers, we're happy to help!

Each event is run in groups, depending on how many people are competing in the event depends on how many groups there are. We call each group up one at a time in order to complete their solves during the scheduled time for the round. We have software that automatically picks what groups you are in and who scrambles for each group. This is the minimum amount you should be helping out as it only is for first rounds. We always appreciate extra help!

Please note down which groups you are competing and scrambling in before arriving at the competition!

Grouping Summary list will be published a week before competition, so stay tuned for the update!

Throughout the competition, live results will be uploaded continuously through Cubecomps . A specific live results link for the USM Penang Cube 2019 will appear here.
