I'm the #1 at CTS until tomorrow overtakes me at the end of the week!!
#1 in activity that is. With 33,712 problems solved.
The weird thing is that I have the FEELING that it goes better and better every day at CTS, while my rating doesn't show that. That has everything to do with the fact that it is impossible to me to speed up. I just MUST take my time. So I have more answers correct, but not faster. Hence my succesrate steadily increases. But that doesn't look as spectacular as rating improvement.
I'm about halfway the 7 circles now.
In earlier efforts that was the point where calculation gradually is replaced by pattern recognition.
I'm curious if the same will happen with such huge amount of problems as we have here.
When pattern recognition takes over, speeding up must be the result.
I'm VERY curious.
