1. ### [Help Thread] First FMC solve

So I recently learnt FMC methods from the Speed cubing review channel and after some days of contemplation, I thought to give it a try. Here is my solve. Scramble : R' U' F D L F2 U' B2 U L2 U R2 U' F2 L2 B2 D2 L' U' L2 B' D2 L2 U2 R' U' F' Pre-move : D' 2x2x2 block : R' F D2 F' 3x2x2 ext : D'...
2. ### Optimal algorithm for 'spreading' lube around the cube

I wonder, what's the optimal algorithm (or which ones) to spread the lube applied on the RUF and BLD (wow blind) corners? Is it R2 L2 U2 D2 F4 B4 D2 U2 L2 R2 (10 moves HTM)? Of course slice moves count as 2 moves in the HTM. The final state must be a solved cube. The algorithm must spread the...
3. ### [WR] Sébastien Auroux FMC Mean 25 Moves

4. ### "Useful" permutation groups

This may be a somewhat weird and vague question, but what how many groups are there that an 3x3 cube be reduced to which could be exploited or manipulated in a solve- in any discipline. For example an oh method may want to reduce the cube into the <r,u> group. Methods that already use this...

6. ### Is FMC hard?

Hey cubers! I'm heading to my first competition on October 11th and October 12th and I'm willing to do the Fewest Moves Count event. The thing is, I only have one month to learn it and I don't whether it's hard or not. Can you help me please? I also don't know a good tutorial for it...
7. ### A Facebook Group for Fewest Moves

To all FMCers out there, there is no group specially dedicated to Fewest Moves. So, I decided to make a group. All FMCers are welcome. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1422080808012720/
8. ### Insertions, a powerfull tool for FMC

This is a tutorial about insertions. Insertions in Fewest moves are very powerfull. If you try to make a framework F2L-1 (meaning first two layers are solved except one slot) you can try to orient the edges in a few moves leaving 3 - 5 corners. You can sticker these corners and go back in the...
9. ### The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

Please read before posting I'm making this thread for all of those ideas you have that are interesting, yet are not fully developed. This is a place to post them. I have come up with many ideas and didn't want to post a new thread for every one of them when most don't get very far. Perhaps if...
10. ### Maneuver and its Inverse (question)

This is something very frequently used in FMC. Apply scramble on solved cube, solve till a point. Invert the whole thing and work from there. Something like this. If the problem statement is S, On identity(solved cube) execute S M1 (till one can't figure a good path from there on) On...
11. ### Guide: Human Thistlethwaite Algorithm for Fewest Moves - HTA for FMC

Those of you following the FMC results in the weekly comp or the example solve thread may have noticed an increase in my FMC results. This is a result of my quest to explore the limits of Human Thistlethwaite for FMC. I have now had a few sub 40 solves with a best result of 35 HTM. Here's my...
