I do not understand the language of FMC because I do not do it. LOL :cool: nice PB though
Haha, thanks!

If you care about understanding, then here’s some unpacking
// Edge Orientation and a 2x2x3 block on the left that has Kociemba Phase 1 done
// Corner Orientation and the placement of the last two edges into the E-layer
// Edge Circuits aka placing the edges into the slices they belong in, Ex- white/red edge goes in one of the four spots between W/R/Y/O centers
// Half-Turn-Only Finish, previous step reduced to a R2,L2,U2,D2,F2,B2 state so you can do 180 degree turns to complete the cube.

You probably don’t care but just in case ;)
That's just HTA isn't it?
Kind of?
-In Phase 1 I didn’t do HTA at all, because in HTA you do EO -> place E-edges -> CO
but I did EO whilst building a Koce 223, then did 2-gen CO + last 2 E edges
Which is basically better than HTA because you’re less restricted, you don’t have to break stuff you already did (RU moves don’t break EO2x2x3), in HTA you have to break E-layer to do CO.
-For Phase 2, yes, I did follow the steps of HTA, but not on purpose, just saw HTO Redux was easy.

Actually I have FMC as a preferred event on the WCA. When I compete in it, im just going to do whatever on it, as in, not learn any FMC techniques because i need to save time for my main events.

But what if you were trapped in a room with your hands cuffed to the wall behind your back, and the handcuffs could be opened by a remote control signal that would be sent from a rubik's cube that's held by a chain to the floor in front of you as soon as it was solved?

Oh, I guess that's not a very common scenario - never mind.
That feels like an unlucky scenario for like most of the world.

broke all of my averages at once apart from a03,which i broke i few solves earlier i think
my ao50 is 39.27 and my ao100 is 40.29
so close to sub 40
also i have been getting a few non-PB sub-30 solves recently so progression looks good

first sub-3 minute single on 4x4
2:51.15
i kinda wanna learn yau but i suck at centres when doing yau,so i am probably gonna make a half-yau which has 3-2-3 edge pairing,but no cross + centres
