  1. This is going to be a forum competition where you use two cubes. You have scramble one cube and then use the other cube to match what the solved one looks like. When you first try it it is really confusing and difficult but the more you do it the easier it is to solve. Every two weeks on Friday night I will give you guys three scrambles. You just have to find the average of those three solves and that will be your time. I hope you guys have a fun time on this thread!

    Wait so how do I do this?
     
  4. You take two solved cubes, scramble one using the scrambles, and then use the solved one to make it match the scrambled one.

    Ok. Makes more sense. I might do this if I finish my HW.

    I don't have two cubes :(.
    So what do I do?
     
  8. You can either find another cube or just not do the race.

    4:47.09, 2:59.06, 3:09.06 = 3:38.40

    not bad considering this is my first time ever doing this.

    Can we check the scrambled cube (the one we are trying to replicate) as many times as we want during the solve?

    Thanks.

    so this would basicly be done as a blindsolve with different targets?

    what would be a better method

    Have you tried that? The recognition is too hard to do at andy speed. I plan out the cross during inspection then place in all the edges for F2L then place those corners in. For LL I noob it because the recognition is super easy. Doing this method I get 1:10 while I only do 0-20 solves a month for the weekly.

    F2L pairs really aren't that hard to do, although I add extra moves for some cases because it's hard to see the normal "algorithm" for inserting a pair (what works intuitively with proper pairs is harder for me to see when matching a scramble). It's the last layer where I do things differently, since I can't recognize full OLL or full PLL cases - I permute edges, then orient them, then permute corners, then orient them for the last layer. I also get about 1:10 average (well, 1:15, anyway), but I'm significantly slower at normal 3x3x3. I also only "practice" when doing the five solves per week for the weekly competition.

    2:26.18, 1:31.67, 1:08.76 = 1:42.20

    Did this not for a long time. Also such a bad light at the moment, had big troubles separating orange and red.
