# Wrong solution for "a badminton match"?

Re. this problem:

I'm sure I have solved it but the correct solution isn't accepted. I submitted a request to Brilliant about this but got not response. Has anyone else had the same issue?

(I'm not posting my solution here, in order to not spoil the problem for those that haven't solved it yet).

Bumping this, can an admin comment? It still hasn't been fixed and I would like my rating points back if nothing else..:)
