I made a thread like 2 months ago on this scramble, but never made a full reconstruction because I was lazy. I just remembered it today, so I dug up the scramble and decided to actually do a legit reconstruction

D2 L2 U' F2 D' L2 F2 U' R2 U' R' B L U' F D B R2 D' F

z2
F2 R' F' D'
y'
U' L U' (first pair)
y'
Rw U' Rw' (finish cross)
U L U' L' (second pair)
y
U R U' R' (third pair)
U' L' U L (fourth pair)
U' Fw R U R' U' Fw' (OLL)
U2
R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R (Jb perm)
Final time: 13. something

I'm not exactly sure how to count moves but I think its 42 (3.2 tps for the entire solve). I probably messed up on the counting since I'm bad, and I also know that there's different ways to count moves. But I'll just go with 42.
Overall, not the luckiest scramble I've ever seen, but I like to think its pretty good considering that every pair was free and the normal edge orienting algorithm I use for 2-look OLL actually solved the OLL, plus J perm.

U2 R' B2 R2 F2 U2 R' B2 L' D2 R U F L D' F' U' L2 R' U2

I avg 20 seconds and i got 13.xx solve on this scramble

(cross colour on D): D U F' R2 F2 L R' B2 R' F L R2 F' L2 B2 F U B' F' D2 U2 R2 B D

6.83:)

X-cross: y R D R D L'
2nd + 3rd pairs: U D'(simultaneously) R U2 R' U2 R U' R' E (or E' not sure)
4th pair: L U' L' U L U' L'
OLL: r' R2 U R' U R U2' R' U R' r
PLL: z U R2 U' R' U R2 D' R U' R' D

I recently got a scramble on one of my favorite app. Let's see how many can spot what caught my attention on this scramble.
R2 U2 R2 B' D' F' B' F2 L R L' F' U' F' U' R F U2 R2 F2
No cheating now and scrolling down to look at other people's answers. See if you can figure out "What's wrong with this scramble?"WIN_20211019_06_34_11_Pro.jpg

F' into F2

L into L'

Doing moves just to undo them. You'd need a move that disturbs that face, being F in the first example and L in the second. But the only moves are one which don't effect that face - B for the first and R for the second. The scramble software is undoing its own moves for no good reason

Square-1: (1, 0) / (5, -1) / (1, -2) / (-1, -1) / (-3, 0) / (3, 0) / (0, -2) / (-3, 0) / (6, -3) / (-2, 0) / (2, 0) / (-2, -4) / (-5, 0)

Absolutely crazy scramble. It's funny because I was complaining to @Donovan749374 how unreliable CS was with handscramble so I went to Cubedesk.io and this was the first thing I got. PB from 22.66 to 21.13, honestly disappointed it wasn't sub-20 (or sub- @CubableYT)

almost a free xcross


Petrus seemed the most suitable method for this scramble, but I get shorter solve with Roux (28 STM):

z' x' // Inspection

F2 L2 R2 B' L2 F' // FB (6)
B' R' B U R' F R F' B' R' B // SB + CMLL (11)
M U M U2 M U M U M' U M // L6E (11)
