    Can we solve a 3x3 each doing only one move?

    This is a cool thread but you totally need to change the rules so that you can post 1 move per page of the thread with NO DESCRIPTION OF ANY KIND of why the move was done or what it is trying to do. It would be far more impressive that way.

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    I'm getting confused. For Roux-LSS, L5C has 614 cases and the pre-located edge does not add any algorithms. So the number of algorithms is the usual number of Roux algorithms +614 (L5C) minus 42 (CMLL) = Usual Roux +572. This is for the case where you cannot skip the last slot if the FR edge...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    For the record I will name the variant I suggested Roux-LSS (=Roux, Last Slot Skip). Just to re-iterate: - FB - Back right 2x2 - Pre-locate FR edge for L5C algorithm - Execute L5C algorithm which auto-solves last slot because FR edge was pre-located - L6E According to the 2x2 L5C thread there...

    Petrus is like, so dead now.

    I tend to agree with u Cube; after years of trying to make new methods my general conclusion is that future methods will not involved orient->permute steps, but rather direct solve. Consider OLL->PLL vs. ZBLL or 1LL, or 2-look CMLL (orient/permute) vs. direct CMLL. That is a simplification...

    My quest for Sub 8 Petrus

    Don't listen to the naysayers. Your goal can be achieved, it is only up to you to achieve it. In 2015 I came on here saying I wanted to be the first to get a sub-10 official average with a corners first method, people laughed and said it was impossible, at the time my average was around 28...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    I really like the idea of mixing in L5C with Roux. The method I use for L7E in the latest LMCF still isn't optimal, and so I was thinking about L7E skips and I think there is an option to force L7E skips without 3,000 algorithms. Consider this modification to Z-cell: 1. When generating the 614...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    There are similarities with '42 Method' for sure. I would throw out that some time ago there was discussion about the possibility of any method being sub-40 average movecount for a human. With Z-cell, you could, theoretically, increase the L5C algorithm count from 600 to around 3000. In this...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    I disagree that L6E-EOLR can be done in 11 moves on average, but even if it could, consider that in L7E, solving the FR edge directly never takes more than 7 moves. Solving FR directly then doing L6E is the dumbest and worst possible L7E method, but by that simple analysis it takes no more than...

    L5C with a free M-slice is way more efficient than CMLL. L7E is only slightly longer than L6E. In L7E, all you need is one of UL, UR, or FR to be random filled with an L/R edge which happens on most solves. In that case L7E is actually Waterman L6E which takes the same number of moves as Roux...

    [WR] Sebastian Weyer - 17.42 4x4 Single

    When a reconstruction shows OLLCP it is never clear to me if the person actually knows full OLLCP and used it, or just did regular OLL and got a CP or full skip by luck. Because if someone does know OLLCP and gets an EPLL skip the odds of that are pretty good and I would say the skip is caused...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    I like Z-cell but I would change it to skip the DFDB step; this will decrease significantly the number of moves for L5C because those edges don't need to be maintained. Then you end up with L7E which you can solve very efficiently with LMCF algorithms. In my opinion this modification to...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    The worst method isn't a fake method, it's a real method, and it's the method I used to solve the 3x3 in 1981 without any algorithms when I was 6 years old: 1. Solve the top corners 2. Solve the top edges 3. In an effort to solve the bottom corners with no algorithms, break off one of the top...

    better hope everyone's using the same method....

    [Help Thread] Gan 356i discussion / software updates / issues report directly to Gan

    When I used to be able to use the app (before the new version which crashes 100% of the time), I can second all of Nico's comments. I constantly would solve, beat my opponent by a mile, but somehow even though the cube shows up solved it thinks it isn't solved. The opponent wins and I have to...

    It can't be more than 2% in my opinion.... Maybe after the recent worlds it might go up to 3-4%.
