1. ### H3 Method Development

Hi all! I've been thinking about the Snyder method for the last few day as it was recently suggested in my Quantitative Method Analysis Survey ( which I recommend you take ). anyway, I've become interested in revisiting this rather obscure method and its relatives. I've grouped all the method...
2. ### Generalized Reduction: An Outline and Expansion on ZZ-b

Hi all, Silky here. This is going to be a breakdown of a technique that I've come up with or, more accurately, have created a system of description. This is an expansion/generalization of Phasing described in ZZ-b which reduces ZBLL to ZZLL. Here I'll be describing what I'd consider the 3 main...

6. ### FMC Database

Hi! I was thinking about a FMC Database, and I saw that Sebastiano made a website for it in 2010, but it doesn't work now, so... I've developed a google sheet with a database with a lot of information about FMC: Database FMC It contained: - Best method's tutorials. - Videos with explained...
7. ### Lego Cubes in FMC

Let's say you have a cube that's tiled with lego pieces, like the Fanxin Color Brick 3x3. During FMC, instead of conventional insertion stickers, you can stick other legos on the pieces you want to trace; basically, reusable insertion stickers. I'm fairly sure I'm not the first person to think...
8. ### Roux FMC weekly competition

So, the older threads made by Kian Mansour and @Aerma kinda died out and Roux FMC seems fun. So, this will be like a race thread where I'll post 5 scrambles instead of 12( because no one has 12 hours of free time obviously) weekly and you have to use Roux only to find the shortest solution and...
9. ### The FMC competition

Let's find out who can do the fewest move for this 3x3 scramble.The scramble is: D2 F2 L' D L R2 D' U' R L U2 L' D' B2 D' F U' B F' U B R2 U' F2 L. Red is f and yellow is u
10. ### What cubes should be removed from the WCA?

Since I've made a thread on what events should be added, and many people thought events should be taken away before new ones were added, I decided to make a poll on it. 2x2-6x6 are not included because most people will agree are challenging yet don't take too long. Megaminx is also excluded...
11. ### Half Turn Only Reduction Method | HTORoux

The idea of HTORoux is to produce decent to low move counts for Half Turn Only Reduction (HTOR) from the Domino state in a reasonably quick and easy way, making this method ideal for FMC. The reasons behind this: There is a high chance for slice move insertions to solve bad edges. Many bad...
12. ### Average moves per solve?

I was wondering what the average amount of moves used per solve is in correlation with a person's average time? I average about 15-17 seconds, and use on average 55-65 (63 ao12) moves per solve. What about everyone else? If I get enough responses, I might compile this into a table for everyone...
13. ### [Help Thread] First FMC solve

So I recently learnt FMC methods from the Speed cubing review channel and after some days of contemplation, I thought to give it a try. Here is my solve. Scramble : R' U' F D L F2 U' B2 U L2 U R2 U' F2 L2 B2 D2 L' U' L2 B' D2 L2 U2 R' U' F' Pre-move : D' 2x2x2 block : R' F D2 F' 3x2x2 ext : D'...
14. ### Optimal algorithm for 'spreading' lube around the cube

I wonder, what's the optimal algorithm (or which ones) to spread the lube applied on the RUF and BLD (wow blind) corners? Is it R2 L2 U2 D2 F4 B4 D2 U2 L2 R2 (10 moves HTM)? Of course slice moves count as 2 moves in the HTM. The final state must be a solved cube. The algorithm must spread the...
15. ### [WR] Sébastien Auroux FMC Mean 25 Moves

http://m.cubecomps.com/competitions/1057/events/15/rounds/1/results Technically this is a WR but he tied himself and so nobody in the room really flipped out. Gesendet von meinem LG-D331 mit Tapatalk
16. ### "Useful" permutation groups

This may be a somewhat weird and vague question, but what how many groups are there that an 3x3 cube be reduced to which could be exploited or manipulated in a solve- in any discipline. For example an oh method may want to reduce the cube into the <r,u> group. Methods that already use this...

Fabulous Minnesota Competition is on April 4th in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Competition Website: http://www.cubingusa.com/FabulousMinnesotaCompetition2015/index.php Organizer: Walker Welch Delegate: Chris Braiedy Events 3x3 Blindfolded Fewest Moves (Mean) 3x3 With Feet Rubik's...
18. ### Is FMC hard?

Hey cubers! I'm heading to my first competition on October 11th and October 12th and I'm willing to do the Fewest Moves Count event. The thing is, I only have one month to learn it and I don't whether it's hard or not. Can you help me please? I also don't know a good tutorial for it...
19. ### A Facebook Group for Fewest Moves

To all FMCers out there, there is no group specially dedicated to Fewest Moves. So, I decided to make a group. All FMCers are welcome. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1422080808012720/
20. ### Insertions, a powerfull tool for FMC

This is a tutorial about insertions. Insertions in Fewest moves are very powerfull. If you try to make a framework F2L-1 (meaning first two layers are solved except one slot) you can try to orient the edges in a few moves leaving 3 - 5 corners. You can sticker these corners and go back in the...
