International Asynchronous Rock Paper Scissors Tournament 2019

History

This tournament is an annual event with four years of history. It all started when Sadale was bored right before the April Fools of 2015. The first event of this tournament was The International Asynchronous Rock Scissors Paper Competition. Unfortunately, due to lack of marketing and horrible user interface, we had only 23 players in the first event.

In the second year 2016, we try to reach out more players by making this event more like an international event. Similar to Olympic Games, we tried passing the host to different country in each year. With improved UI of the website, we managed to get 29 players! The event was hosted in Poland.

In the third year 2017, we've got a hoster from yet another country. Unfortunately, the hoster failed to setup the website on time. Therefore, the event was in hiatus.

In the fourth year 2018, the backend was were re-written with a microframework. A more human-friendly captcha were implemented. Sadale was the hoster of the event again. We managed to get 2 international supporting organizations for this year of the event. From this year on, we started issuing participation certificates to all of the participants of the event. There was 25 players.

To facilitate the setup of the website of this event, Sadale had dockerized the Flask webapp and released the source code. With the docker image, the event's website can be hosted by anyone easily!

This year the host had been passed to ikatokai.com, which is an American organization. In addition, we managed to get 9 international supporting organizations for the event. It's going to be the biggest event ever!

Good news! Certificate of Participation will be issued to all of the participants! Did I mention that the logo of the organizer plus all of the 9 supporting organizations will be shown on the certificate? That's ten logos in total! Anyone seeing all these logos stamped onto the certificate would be super impressed! Show it to your friends and they'll be envious. Show it to your parents and they'll be proud of you. Show it to your crush and he/she'll instantly marry you. Show it to your teacher and you can graduate from highschool immediately. Show it to Harvard or Stanford or MIT and you'll get admitted to it right away. Show it to whitehouse and you can get your student debt waived. Show it to your boss that you'll get promoted. Show it to Kim Jong Un and he'll grant you full control of his regime. Oh! There's literally no reason not to join this event! Please be tempted to join this event. You'll be rewarded a participation certificate! :P
