Well I’m already sub him, I have a 2.49 and he has a 2.94 mean. Tbh I think copying solutions is completely fine, especially when its the optimal solution. It wouldn’t be fair for someone to do the optimal on one scramble, then nobody else is allowed to do it.

Yeah I felt a little bit guilty about it but the OP specifically said it was ok and this competition is unlike any other already so I just rolled with it. And yeah Tipster did better than me by a lot.

Thanks to TipsterTrickster for the optimal solutions I hope it's okay to him that I used them.

Yeah that's fine, also your mean is .01 slower than mine and your score (sum of all 3) is .04 slower than mine, I'm gonna have to start practicing these again.

Finally sub 2.50, yay!!

Scramble 1: R2 F' U2 L D' L' D' R D2 U2 F2 L' D2 L' D' B' U' -- 25.24 I did a standard Roux solve with blue/white first block.
Scramble 2: D' L D' U2 R2 U' B L U2 B2 R U R2 F2 D' U2 B' -- 12.15 I reversed the scramble.
Scramble 3: U' R2 B U' L' F' R D2 U L' F2 D2 R' F' D B' D' U' -- 8.08 I wrote down the reversed scramble and executed it that way.
Scramble 4: L B2 U2 B' R' D2 R' B L B F' U2 L D R2 B R -- 6.53 I wrote down the reversed scramble and practiced it a few times.
Scramble 5: U' R F U2 F' U2 F2 D' R D' L2 R' F D B2 L' B R' U2 -- 2:30.94 I did a CFOP solve. I don't know any OLL, so I just kinda winged it after F2L with SUNE and with corner swap algs I know from CMLL.

There you have it. 5 scrambles, 5 different methods of solving it. None of them is particularly fast, but it was fun to get creative solving these scrambles and reading the thread on how people are trying to be crazy fast.

So if I post a slower three solves now, and a few days later post a faster exec of those three, will that combine and count the early post as the fast times? (IDK how to explain it well)

It will be used for your advantage. For prizes where the solution score matter the entry with higher score will be considered.
For the prize where entry time matters your first entry will be considered.

I think I already clarified but I will be more clear.
He can win prize 3 4 5 . So his time will count for prize 3 - Lottery with higher chance for fast solutions.
He can't win prize 1 or 2.

I would make videos but my parents rules about posting videos online is complicated. I do enjoy competing hopefully I’ll get the best mean even though I can’t win prize one or two.

Oh SHOOT I just reread the scoring, and apparently someone with super long solves doesn't have a good shot of winning $100, so I just spent 20 minutes solving two scrambles for nothing xD
