Read this: http://ctftime.org/ctf-wtf/
What kind of CTF is this?
It's a Jeopardy-Style CTF, designed to be friendly to beginners. This means there will be multiple challenges from different areas of computer security, and you can pick whatever you want to work on!
How does this relate to the main 35C3 CTF?
This is a completely separate contest designed for beginners. If you are playing this CTF and find it too easy, or you are able to finish all tasks, feel free to try the main CTF!
Where can I get help?

Is there a flag format?

How are challenge points calculated?
This year's CTF has dynamically calculated challenge points, the formula is:
int(round(min_points + (max_points - min_points) / (1 + (max(0, solves - 1) / 11.92201) ** 1.206069)))
min_points and max_points are 30 and 500 for most challenges.
Please note that the coefficients are subject to change while our deep neural network optimizes them for your ideal game experience.
