    Hello SpeedSolving!

    This is the 3x3 Race to Sub 15/12/10/8 seconds.

    The rules are simple:

    All scrambles will be generated by the WCA official cube scrambler.
    Scramble length will always be 25 moves HTM.
    Please do not cheat, it is not the end of the world if you do poorly.
    This is a weekly competition so once a week the round will end and a new round will start inwhich I compose the results and new scrambles will be provided.
    There will be 3 averages of 12 you are suppose to do.
    Once you have finished the 3 averages of 12, take the mean of those averages to get your true average of all of them.
    If you fail to complete your averages I will exept late averages by one day. Any thing after that you will just have to do the next rounds scrambles.
    If you do not average your averages together I will likely not do it for you and your results will not be noted.
    I want your posts to look like this please:
    Race(Sub X)

    Average one: XX.xx
    Individual times

    Average two: XX.xx
    Individual times

    Average three:
    Individual times

    Mean of averages: XX.xx

    If you have any questions please ask.

    I might change the format and when rounds end from time to time.

    Good idea, this is probably better than having separate threads for them all.

    Nice idea.
    Race(Sub-12)

    Average one: 12.94 (SD=0.99)
    14.52, 13.83, 12.78, 11.95, 12.25, 14.45, 12.79, 14.21, 12.07, 13.65, 11.42, 10.62
    Not bad. That were one of my first solves today, I only did about 50 before them for a warm-up.

    Average two: 12.74(SD=0.64)
    11.84, 12.76, 12.60, 12.65, 12.84, 13.71, 14.35, 13.26, 13.76, 11.45, 12.66, 11.74
    Low SD.

    Average three: 12.41(SD=0.82)
    12.90, 13.60, 12.66, 13.06, 12.44, 10.50, 12.45, 11.91, 11.65, 13.14, 8.25, 13.45
    SUB-9! Now that's called "cuber's high".

    Mean of averages: 12.69

    One REALLY good time and average averages. But I can't say that it went bad...

    I was also going to do sub 20 and 30 but I don't think Mike and Bryan should like that.

    If the time comes when I'm ever sub-20, expect to see me here a lot.

    What a load of crap. I can't do good averages of 12 to save my life.

    Mean of averages: 16.96

    I've tried switching to my LunHui because my Guhong is dying, but I switched to my guhong for the last two solves of average three, and those sub-15s came with no problem. I averaged low-to-mid 15s on my well-working Guhong -- time to get a new Guhong. I can't use a LunHui. Too locky.

    Round 1: Sub-15
    Average: 16.87

    Average 1
    16.65

    15.73, 16.97, 15.35, 17.99, 16.02, (18.46), 17.58, 18.17, 16.25, 14.63, (13.42), 17.82

    Sort of inconsistent.


    Average 2
    17.45
    17.32, 16.63, 16.72, (16.42), (19.69), 16.71, 17.79, 18.90, 17.23, 18.11, 17.50, 17.54

    Terrible. Not a single sub-15 single, not even sub-16. But it was consistently bad, so...yay? Anyway, I haven't gotten a 17-second average in a long time, so this isn't very good.


    Average 3
    16.51
    15.34, 15.74, 17.09, 16.76, 16.50, 17.66, 16.53, 15.84, 15.83, (25.26[lol.]), (13.53[easy green cross]), 17.86

    Okay. Pretty consistent compared to the others.
