Fresh new thread that won't discuss about open/closed EC.

I'm looking forward like hell right now. It's gonna be nice to se both old and new faces. But there is one thing I don't get, the qualification thing. For example my best BLD in com is >3min but to qualify you have to have a solve sub3 at comp before 31 aug but I'm registerd to compete in the first round and not the qualification round. Same thing with 4x4 and OH. And how does the waiting list work?

My previous goal was to compete in every event except 5x5BLD. But I had to scratch that since I suck at MM, Mega, Sq-1, clock and feet. :p

What are your goals?

I'm gonna improve my BLD NR for sure and hopefully claim multi and perhaps 4x4BLD NR aswell. If it wasn't for Gunnar I would have held a lot of NRs, good luck to me beating him in OH. :p

Sorry, Daniel, for being so good. :p

My goals are pretty much:

3x3: Making the finals and/or a sub-14 average
2x2: Don't really care about this event anymore
4x4: top-5
3x3OH: Going for the 1st place and the WR if it's still around the 20s in September.

OH is going extremely good for me right now. Yesterday I got this:
Average of 5: 19.76
Average of 12: 21.07
Average of 50: 22.87

I thought you were about as fast as me!?

Anyway, I might as likely get a 5th place or worse, since the competition is very hard. Guys like Rama, Milan, Thiabaut and Edouard are not easy too beat. But it's ok. The challange is what makes it funny and worth all the practice.

Could somebody explain what the waiting list is? It say if you don't reach the time limit, then you must go through the qualification round and may be put on the waiting list. But what is the waiting list exactly?

It's a waiting list ;). Isn't it selfexplaining?
If competitiors cancel their registration, people from the waiting list will fill up the empty slots. Or if the organization team will change the limit of competitiors per event, or...

My goals:
a) having fun
b) getting a sub-10 in 4x4 bld
c) getting a successful 5x5 bld solve
d) having a great multi bld competition with many cubes and many competitors

Does this mean it's neccesary to register fast? Is there a waiting list for evry events, or just some of them? If it's just for some of them, which one?

I am not allowed to go. The airport tickets is too expensive. If it just were in a more popular place....
