1. F2L Competition

This will be an F2L forum competition on the 3x3 Rubik's cube.A new round will begin every Wednesday and Saturday at around 1:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern Time.So,each round will end when the new round begins.There will be 2 categories: One-handed and Two-handed solving.I will give 12 scrambles for each category so that you can compete in both categories at the same time if you want to.If you would like to try something a little different,you can join the Last Layer Competition.If you use Roux,you can join this F2B Competition and the LSE Competition.

Rules:
1.Everyone who knows F2L can join,no matter how fast they are.
2.You will use the scrambles I give you which will be WCA scrambles generated from Mark2.
3.You cannot redo any of the solves.If you get a pop or you mess something up finish the solve and stop the timer or just make it a DNF.
4.We will be using the average of 12 system.
5.We will be solving the first two layers of the cube(including the cross).
6.(You need to do this only if you're color neutral.)When you finish the F2L and stop the timer you need to finish the rest of the cube and then you can continue with the next scramble.
7.HAVE FUN!!! It's not about being the best or the worst or winning or losing.Just have fun.

What if we're CN? Then that will affect the next scramble

What if we use Roux?

3. Oh,yea,sorry 'bout that.It will be fixed right away.

5. 7.93

8.80, 7.00, 7.42, 6.97, 14.14, 7.14, 8.07, 8.24, 7.84, 8.98, 8.17, 7.62

The 14 was a pop.

This made me realize how much I suck at LL. I average high 13's.

Don't think of it like that.You don't suck at LL,you just own at F2L.

This is already how average of x is used in speedcubing.

8. This doesn't personally apply to me, but you can solve the F2L with other methods than Fridrich, right? Like you solve the F2L using Petrus, where you block build? I can see a lot of non-CFOP users asking about this :/

Yeah sure,you can use whatever method you wish,the goal is just to solve the F2L.
