Abstract: Last two years we have had a new rule implemented at IOI competition. Unfortunately, it brought lots of problems with it, and participants, as well as other IOI-related people, weren't happy with this rule. This document attempts to analyze the 50% rule, and to introduce a new one that could replace it.
