Very nicely organized event!
+ Stay in a nice hotel.
+ Food & drinks provided for the whole 2-days event.
+ Good level of challenges.
+ A lot of unique challenges including SCADA/ICS systems hacking and IoT (webcams, pagers) on top of standard web, reverse and pwn
+ Challenging formula with jeopardy tasks mixed with attack-defence

We're really glad we got invited for this CTF :)

I agree with Pharisaeus. It was a really nicely organized event! :) I enjoyed it a lot. Too bad we are 80 points away from getting the third place...Hope we can do better next year! Webcam and SCADA is definitely interesting, although the score distribution should be changed, so that jeopardy does not weigh that much.

Thank you for the invitation.
