That would require high amounts of knowledge of the cube. Do you really think planning the while solution in 15 seconds is possible? It might be possible to plan out to the 3rd or 4th f2l, and then predict oll and pll. by then we will probably have heaps of new algorithms for special cases though
Exactly. I think we can plan cross, all or most of F2L and then lookahead to oll/pll with no pauses. Not quite one looking, but still could easily get sub 3

If you look at the limits of CFOP, it's around 4.2 seconds so I don't see any sub 4 averages happening because people won't reach that level of optimisation. You need to find a method that has a limit sub 3.8 to persuade me that sub 4 is possible.

Wait, how do you work out the limits on a method?

I bought an x-man Wingy and haven't touched it in like weeks...
Cool...?

Ok couple things here. Limit doesn't mean averages can't be below that, that's just a limit for global. Even now sub 3 singles are possible. I don't see how sub 4 averages just aren't gonna happen.


Then we will not need 1 hour for FMC.
I too look for a fingertricky solution using a speedsolving method for FMC...

Yeah, Sameer has a 2.78 or something and several other people have sub-4s at home. Eventually somebody will get the right combination of scrambled and get a sub-4.

Tanzer Balimtas is fairly sure only 4 people have sub 3s at home. Max, Feliks, Patrick and Namh.

That said, out of those four, I think Patrick and Namh are most likely to get the new WR. But it could be anybody with a lucky scramble and a lucky solve.
It will be max park, Feliks uses CFP now and max will be like stuff you imma use CF.
