Just got a pretty cool solution with some reverse NISS and lucky insertions.

Scramble: R' U' F R F2 D2 L R U2 L D2 B2 R D2 B F' L' U B' L2 R U' F L2 R' U' F

Spoiler: solution

B' U2 B L2 F // pseudo 2x2x2
B L2 // pseudo 2x2x3 - 1 edge
(F' U' L2 U) // 2x2x3
(D2) // 1x2x2 block
(B2 R D' R' B' D2) // AB3E and twisted 3C

Skeleton (18 to 3E and twisted 3C): B' U2 B L2 F B L2 D2 B * R D R' B2 D2 U' L2 U F
* = B R' B' R (cancels 2)

New skeleton (20 to 4C): B' U2 B L2 F @ B L2 D2 B2 R' B' $ R2 D R' B2 D2 U' L2 U F
@ = R2 B L2 B' R2 B L2 B' (cancels 4)
$ = D L D' R2 D L' D' R2 (cancels 4 again!)

Solution (28): B' U2 B L2 F R2 B L2 B' R2 B D2 B2 R' B' D L D' R2 D L' R' B2 D2 U' L2 U F

I didn't try that in this one, I just went with a sledge to solve L3E. That's really smart though, especially considering the twisted 3C.

The best I could find was B2 L B L' B L B2 L' at the same spot which leads to 3E in 25 moves, with a 32 move optimal solution. There are probably better places to insert it though, so definitely something I'll keep in mind for future attempts. Thanks for the suggestion!

In the same spot, you can insert this:
setup: B' L' Bw'
fat-sune: Bw L B' L B L2 Bw' L2
reverse: Bw L B
2*3 moves setup + 8 moves fat-sune - 6 moves cancellation = 8 moves to solve the 3E3C

Yes! I just got a new single PB for FMC, and it is 26 moves I got it for the weekly competition, and I have to say that I wish all scrambles were like this one I really like the fact that I was able to get to AB4C3E in 19 moves and the fact that I was able to cancel 9 moves in 2 out of the 3 insertions. I just wish that my 2nd insertion was better, but all in all it is a good solve for me.

Spoiler: 26 FMC Solution

Scramble: R' U' F D2 B2 R2 D2 B U2 B' D2 U2 B' D2 R B R U' L D2 L R' F L' R' U' F

R' L U F D L' F2 L B L2 - 2x2x3 [10/10]
R' F U F R F' R' U' R2 - AB4C3E [9/19]

1st Skeleton - R' L U F D $ L' F2 L B L2 R' F U F R F' R' U' R2
Insert at $ B L' F2 L B' L' F2 L (Cancels 9 moves) Really Good

2nd Skeleton - R' L U F D B % L' F2 L' R' F U F R F' R' U' R2
Insert at % B2 D F2 D' B2 D F2 D' (cancels 1 move) Really Bad

3rd Skeleton - R' L U F D B' D F2 D' & B2 D F2 D' L' F2 L' R' F U F R F' R' U' R2
Insert at & D F2 D' F' B R F2 R' F B' (Cancels 9 moves) Again, Really Good!

Final solution -
R' L U F D F' R F2 R' F B D F2 D' L' F2 L' R' F U F R F' R' U' R2 (26 moves)

I have been practicing FMC a lot recently, and not many other events, but since Nationals is only a few weeks away, I think that I should now focus on the events that I will be doing at Nationals. After Nationals I think that I will try to get back into FMC, because I am really enjoying it.

A scramble from Dadams. Done at July 3rd, but forgot to submit. Using only A B A' (except for very first and last part) was intended.
