Yes. I started with Heise. When I learned 4x4, I had to come up with a way to address corner parity, since the Heise method doesn't work on 4x4. After I made an intuitive 4x4 method using commutators, I realized that my 4x4 method was just Roux when adapted to the 3x3. So I started solving 3x3 with Roux, using my own corner method.

I know it's probably worse than two-look CMLL, but I like it because it's mine. I'll also never have to worry about forgetting algorithms if I take a long break, since I can do the whole thing intuitively with commutators.
I use 3-style for 3BLD. I'm not a god at commutator knowledge, but would the H and Pi cases take 2 commutators, since they are all 4 corners that have to be oriented? anyway, it's cool that you're coming up with your own algs and good luck improving with Roux!

solves/total: 652/652

ao50: 15.12 (σ = 1.48)
ao100: 15.47 (σ = 1.68)
ao200: 15.57 (σ = 1.65)

also distribution is funny

Thanks! Those cases wouldn't necessarily use two 8-move commutators, but yes, it would be two looks. It's only one-look 40% of the time. I explain it in step 2 of my 4x4 method here: https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/threads/intuitive-4x4-method-with-parity-avoidance.73049/

Congratulations on your new OH average!

FMC PB!

Scramble: R' U' F L U2 F2 L F2 L U2 R' B2 R2 D2 U' R U' L' B' L2 F U B2 R' D R' U' F
(z)
B' R2 D F' D F2 // EO + Kociemba 2x2x3
R' U' R2 U2 R' // CO + Last 2 E Edges
r2 U S2 U' // Edge Circuits
L2 D2 R2 // Half-Turn-Only Finish
19 HTM

This can actually be turned into a useful FMC method ( 1- EO+Koc.223⠀ 2- CO+L2EE⠀ 3- Corner n' Edge Circuits⠀ 4- HTO Finish )
My Phase 2 was stupidly lucky, but my Phase 1 was somewhat normal (although still better than average)

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.

ao50 and ao100 lowered down to 41/42
sub 40 hopefully by monday
cross on bottom is beautiful,i am inserting my 1st pair at 8 seconds when usually i'd insert them by 14-18 seconds
EDIT:26.28 single!!!!! that was insane down 4.13 seconds from 30.4
39.99 ao50,sub 40!!!!!!! now to get the sub 40 ao100,currently 41.92

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.

25.44 3x3 single,now PB
lucky Xcross + OCLL and CPLL skip :)
3x3 has suddenly become very fun lol,i only beat my PB the day before yesterday and now it's come down again!!!
EDIT:ao100 is at 40.xx now,ao50 is already sub-40
