Weekly competition 2010-21

All current (new) scramblers from the WCA are used.
  • For all 3x3x3 events (including FMC) Cube Explorer was used to generate a random position and provide an inverse scramble (generator) for that position.
  • For all cubes > 3x3x3 (mediumcubes) a "w" means "Wide" so you turn not just the slice, but also the outer layer.
  • For all cubes > 5x5x5 (bigcubes) a number before the letter indicates the amount of layers to turn like a wide turn. "3U2" would mean "turn the 3 uppermost layers a half turn".
  • For Megaminx R and D are "double layer moves of the entire megaminx. The U moves are normal U moves, not "double layer" or cube rotations
  • For Square1 the new notation is not entirely clear about when to perform a slice/half-turn. I adjusted the scrambles so that no slice-turns are to be performed at the beginning or the end (unless the scramble begins or ends with (0,0))
  • Clock hasn't changed, but just so you know: UddU u=-1,d=5 would mean Up-Left-pin is Up, Up-Right-pin is Down, Down-Left-pin is Down, Down-Right-pin is Up and that you need to turn a corner that has its pin up rotated counterclockwise by 1 hour and that you need to turn a corner that has its pin down rotated clockwise by 5 hours
  • Pyraminx small letters are for the tips
Just to make sure everyone understands: We follow the official WCA rules for all events. Here are some things that people often don't know:
  • For multiple blind you can choose how many cubes you are going to do (let me know if 15 scrambles is not enough). If you choose 5 cubes you have to use the first 5 scrambles.
  • For one-handed you can use both hands during inspection
  • For with feet you can only use feet during inspection
  • For 3x3x3 Fewest Moves there is a 1 hour time limit.
  • For relay you have 15 seconds of inspection in total, you can use any order to solve the cubes and the rest of the relay-rules should be obvious
For every event you participate in you will be rewarded points. You will also be rewarded points according to your ranking. Because this is quite a complicated system you can read about it in this thread. The results of the competition will be available as soon as possible after the competition closes at the end of the thread.

If you think other events should be added to this competition you can influence that in the 2008: Other events for Weekly competition thread

This competition starts now and ends wednesday/thursday nightchange (officialy), but I will only close a competition after the new one is on-line. If a competition doesn't start at wednesday/thursday nightchange you still get the full 7 days to participate.

Comment: First try on 10 cubes. Memo was 27:14. My solving order was really weird because at first I forgot the first edges on the first cube. I started working from the back. I popped the 4th cube, and for some reason, I didn't even turn the 7th cube! The second was off by 2x 2cycles of edges, 5th was scrambled, 6th was two twisted corners, and 10th was two flipped edges.

F2 lol

Square-1 : 31.67, (25.84), 33.01, (43.97), 36.59 = 33.76

4x4 : (58.19), 53.79, (42.82), 57.66, 49.21 = 53.55

3x3 OH : (19.43), 23.54, 24.53, (25.38), 22.06 = 23.38
The F2 is hard to control for OH :p

Megaminx : 1:30.58, (1:17.57+), (1:33.22), 1:20.08, 1:29.69 = 1:26.79

2-3-4 Relay : 1:07.49
Everything was nice and smooth, I think this is a PB :D

5x5 : (2:14.47), (1:52.59), 1:59.14, 1:57.09, 1:58.68 = 1:58.30
I'm getting more consistent!

3x3 BLD : DNF(1:41.41), 1:49.59, 1:59.18 = 1:49.59

2-3-4-5 Relay : 3:44.09
Very very bad 5x5

Good average :D

:fp I messed up the parity algorithm on the first solve, and I was interrupted halfway through the last solve.

3x3x3 FMC: 33 moves

Scramble:R' D' U2 B' R U L2 B2 D L' U R2 B' U F2 R' F' R2 U'

Solution:F' U2 R' U' R L D2 L D B' L B L' D L' D' L' D2 L D2 R' D L2 D' R D L2 B D' L2 B' D F2 (33)
This is going to be tough

F2 on inverse makes 2 pairs
F2 as premove for scramble
2x2x2: F' U2 R' U' R

Switch to inverse scramble with premoves: R' U R U2 F
2x2x3:F2 D' B L2 B'

Switch back to scramble with premoves: B L2 B' D F2
On scramble:2x2x3+pair:F' U2 R' U' R L2

Switch back to inverse scramble with premoves:L2 R' U R U2 F
On inverse : F2l-1: F2 D' B L2 D B' D L' D2 L2

Finally , switch back to scramble with premoves:
L2 D2 L D' * B D' L2 B' D F2(10)
On scramble: F2L-1+ 1x2x2 block in LL: F' U2 R'U'R L D2 L (8)
Leave 3 corners: D B' L B L' D L' D' L (9-1=8 cancels with premove)
Insert at *-> D'R'D L2 D' R D L2(8-1=7)
Total: 10+8+8+7=33

Safety solution(35 moves) after 16 minutes was
Premove for inverse: B2(1) (To correct F2L-1)
On inverse:
2x2x2: R2 U' B' D U2 R2(6)
2x2x3: D F' D F D' (5)
F2L-1: L' D' B2 D(4)
EO: B' L' B (3)
Leave 3 corners: L' D L2 D' L2 D L2 D' L2 (9)
Last 3 corners: U' F' U B' U' F U B (8-1 cancels with premove)

After finding that 35 mover I started using NISS every time I got stuck. Not a very good insertion though. Still OK in the end

3x3x3 OH: 43.09, 32.18, 34.48, 37.83, 42.17 = 38.16
The two sup 40s spoilt it

3x3x3: 25.35, 24.07, 18.72, 16.40, 19.20=20.67

OLL and leave 3 edges: (B') U2 B2 U B2 U B2 U2 B' U'
