Copilot Tournament

We are happy to announce a special opportunity for Topcoder copilots.

Copilots are an integral part of the Topcoder community and it's important to have a tournament to reward our best copilots with a trip to the 2019 Topcoder Open Finals.


During the online qualification rounds of the 2019 Topcoder Open, we will be awarding a trip to the TCO19 Finals to the top design, top data science copilot and top development copilot per Stage.

NOTE: It is likely we will introduce new categories and rules after Stage 1 is completed, so please stay tuned to the copilot channels to keep up with the latest copilot instructions, education, etc.


The leaderboard is calculated based on Copilot fulfillment and Copilot earnings within each stage.

Fulfillment: Copilots must maintain a fulfillment of 90% or higher. If you drop below 90% you will not qualify for the Copilot Tournament

Earnings: Copilot payments are included based on the Registration Phase start date of each challenge or task. This includes Tasks that you copilot. For example, if you Copilot a Code challenge and the Registration Phase start date for the challenge is October 5th, then that is the date that is used. If a task is entered into the system simply for payment, then the Registration Phase start date is used as well. We will be monitoring tasks that are payments for copilot work vs. dev/design tasks that you are assigned to, so please be mindful.
