These weekly competitions are sponsored by TheCubicle.us - check them out for all your speedcubing needs.

Each week, a random competitor will be drawn and given a $15 giftcard to TheCubicle.us (winner's prize must be claimed within 30 days).

For the weekly competition, we are accepting results either of two ways:
1. Use http://www.speedsolving.com/competitions/. You will need to log in; please use the same username that you use on speedsolving.com! (You may feel free to use a different password, but use the same username.) Hopefully use of the website to enter your times will be self-explanatory, please post here or email Mats (mats.bergsten 'at' gmail.com) if you have questions.
2. Post here, as usual.

If you have posts in both places, we will give priority to posts within the thread, in case there are difficulties with the website.

We follow the WCA regulations for all events. Here are some things that people often don't know, or are different from the regulations:

  • For Multi-BLD you can choose how many cubes you are going to do (let me know if 60 scrambles is not enough). If you attempt 5 cubes you must use the first 5 scrambles.
  • For one-handed and with feet you can use both hands during inspection.
  • For 3x3x3 Fewest Moves there is a 1 hour time limit. Provide an explanation in the comments describing how you arrived at your solution.
  • 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.
  • 6x6x6 and 7x7x7 will use an average of 5.

Notation and scrambling:
  • For all events (other than skewb) the Mark2 scrambler will be used.
  • For 4x4x4 and 5x5x5, a "w" means "Wide" so you turn not just the slice, but also the outer layer.
  • For 6x6x6 and 7x7x7, 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, Pochmann notation will be used.
  • For Square-1, 2x2x2, and 3x3x3, near-optimal random state scrambles will be used.
  • For Square1, the newest official scrambler is being used. This adds a slash whenever a slice move is to be applied.
  • For Clock, a shortened version of the official notation is used.
  • For Pyraminx, small letters are for the tips
  • Skewb scrambles are generated using Chen Shuang's scrambler, which uses Fixed Corner Notation.
  • Kilominx scrambles uses the notation for Megaminx.
  • Redi Cube scrambles are generated using xyzzy's scrambler, which uses the older style Rubiks'kewb notation.
  • For Master Pyraminx, a "w" means "wide so that you turn 3 of the 4 layers. As with Pyraminx, lowercase moves are for the tips.

This competition starts now and ends Monday/Tuesday nightchange GMT (officially). Automated results will close at the official time, but if you are slightly late, go ahead and post your results here and we will include them at our discretion if we think it's reasonable.

Okay, this week we have some major changes to the Weekly Competition.

First, Fewest Moves has been changed to Mean of 3 format. This was a HUGE change affecting large parts of the code, because the code was originally designed with the assumption that formats would never change. I have done all I can to try to make the interface work okay with the new format. The timer is still a little strange with fewest moves if you do weird things with it. Please bear with me as I try to clean it up. If you have any problems with the behavior on fewest moves, or in general, please PM me and I will be happy to try to straighten it out for you. Please consider keeping your on-paper solutions this week for a little while, just to make sure your solutions are properly saved. I will be making daily backups, so if you see that your solution and explanation shows up okay in the results pages, you can probably rest assured it will be saved.

Note that we now require an explanation for each of the three solutions. There is also an overall comment box, which is not required, so you can use that to talk about how you did overall with the mean of 3. Note that this is intended to follow WCA rules - anyone who gets a DNF for the mean of 3 is still ranked according to best single, so it is still useful to do your best on individual solves.

Second, we have added Redi Cube and Master Pyraminx as two new events. Redi Cube uses the Rubiks'kewb scrambling notation, which might not be the most popular notation now, but xyzzy kindly offered his scrambler, and that's what it generates. If anyone knows of a random state scrambler for Redi Cube that uses the other notation, and there is general consensus that it's better (which I'm not currently convinced of), please feel free to let me know. Master Pyraminx uses a notation suggested by one of our members here - "w" is appended to wide moves (moving 3 of the 4 layers), and lowercase means tips.

As I said, please PM me if you see any issues that need addressing, and good luck!

One note: The second scramble for Master Pyraminx has a sequence "L' Lw' L", which is redundant. I will try to have the scrambler fixed to prevent that by next week, but for this week, I think it's safe to say the scramble is still a perfectly reasonable scramble for competition, so I will not be replacing the scrambles this week.

3x3 - 16.40, 14.87, 15.27, 17.60, 19.35. ao5 = 16.42

just asking, how the "contest results" points are calculated?

3X3: 1:14.87, (52.99 PB), 1:15.14, 1:03.90, (1:36.78) = 1:01.30
3BLD: DNF, DNF, 5:09.77

And can I edit this as I finish more categories, or should I make a new post each time (or wait and put them all in one post)?

Thanks!

Editing this post as you go is definitely the nicest, easiest way for us to handle.

just asking, how the "contest results" points are calculated?
Thanks for reminding me. I just updated the scoring info for the two new events:
https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/threads/weekly-competition-overall-scoring-rules.49416/

It feels like we should increase the participation points for Fewest Moves, but I'm not sure how to change it. Since the participation points have become so much less relevant due to the extra participation, it might make more sense to just consider an overhaul to the whole points system; I'm not sure a small tweak to the Fewest Moves participation points makes much difference.

do you have an opinion on the possibility of mirror blocks being added to the speedsolving weekly competitions? Have other people asked for it, and is there a chance of it being added in the future? Thanks :)
For this year's vote, it honestly was not close to enough votes to make it in. There would probably need to be a new groundswell of interest in the puzzle before it would be likely to get added in a future year.

It is far more complicated and confusing to add or remove events in the middle of a year, so I will not entertain event change ideas again until right before 2020.

3x3: 13.09, 10.29, 11.38, 17.02, 14.09 = 12.85 ao5
3BLD: DNF(lost memo), DNF(1 edge 3cycle), DNF(exec error)
OH: 24.03, 25.93, 25.53, 31.62, 23.42 = 25.16 ao5
FMC: 44, 36, DNS

Fun fact, I do not do Roux, nor do I do FMC, nor am I color-neutral. So enjoy this crazy Frankenstein solve. I'm oddly proud of it XD

Fun solve with some lucky beginning I think (and I apparently have never heard of EO). I think this is my first time under forty moves ever.

How do you create a spoiler thing ? I want to justify my FMC but I don't know how to hide it ..
First press "Edit" on your post, then on the tool bar above where you added your times, on the 8th option from the right there is a scroll down button that says "Insert" and from there you will see the "Spoiler" option. Click on that and you will then give it a name (as in "FMC Explanation, or whatever), and after that enter your comments in the spoiler, click save.

FMC

1. R' U' F D F2 U2 R' B2 R B2 L2 U2 B2 R2 U2 F R F' D' U' L B' U2 R D2 R' U' F
(L' R' F' U2) //222
(D L' D' F2) //223
L D' L' D2 //F2L-1
L' D L D' L' D L2 D' L //3C (21)

sk: L D' L' D2 L' D L D' L' D L2 D' L F2 D L D' U2 F R L ^
^ R' B' R F2 R' B R F2

solution: L D' L' D2 L' D L D' L' D L2 D' L F2 D L D' U2 F L B' R F2 R' B R F2 (27)

Also had
(L' R' F' U2) //222
(D L' D' F2) //223
(L' D2) //3E5C (10)

sk: D2 L ^ F2 D L D' U2 F R L
^ L R D' L' D R' //5C (15)

Optimal was 26 with a 4 cancel on first insertion, which I somehow missed.

2. R' U' F U2 F2 D' B2 D' R2 U R2 U2 L' U2 F R2 F2 D R2 F D2 R D R' U' F
DNF

A few good starts that didn't really go anywhere.

(R' U2 L2 F U' F) F2 //223
(B' R' B R) //F2L-1-corner
(L' D' L) //F2L-corner
(L B R' B R B2 L') //5C (20)

Ran out of time due to some mistakes and stickers falling off

3. R' U' F D F D R F' B' D' B R' B2 R' L2 U F2 R2 U L2 D' B2 D2 F2 L2 R' U' F
DNF again

R D R' D' B R B2 R2 //222
D' L2 B D2 B //3E4C (13)

sk: R D R' D' B R B2 R2 D' L2 B D2 ^ B
^ L F' D F D' L' //5C (19)

Then ran out of time
