Actually you just don't get an average. If you have two DNF times in a complete average, then you get a DNF.If you go above the 2:00 in both of your first two solves, you get a DNF average for the Ao5.
That's why combined rounds exist (which you need to use in order to have a cut-off). It's a combination of Average of 5 and Best of 2. If you don't make cutoff then you were actually in a best of 2 round, so 9f9 doesn't apply. (Analogously for mean of 3 events.)[...] I checked the regulations, and it looks like one should get a DNF average?
- 9f9) For "Average of 5" rounds, one DNF or DNS is permitted to count as the competitor's worst result of the round. If a competitor has more than one DNF and/or DNS result in the round, their average result for the round is DNF.
Okay, cool, that makes sense.That's why combined rounds exist (which you need to use in order to have a cut-off). It's a combination of Average of 5 and Best of 2. If you don't make cutoff then you were actually in a best of 2 round, so 9f9 doesn't apply. (Analogously for mean of 3 events.)
3h) Modifications that enhance the basic concept of a puzzle are not permitted. Modified versions of puzzles are permitted only if the modification does not make any additional information available to the competitor (e.g. orientation or identity of pieces), compared to an unmodified version of the same puzzle.Magnetic clocks are legal right?
And a small discoloration on a 5x5 is legal right? Ill provide pictures, when I can find out how to upload pictures.... Thanks!
Would this 7x7 be competition legal with that corner defect? My guess is no.
Your puzzle is 100% legal. My 7x7 also has the same discoloration and trust me it's fine.That almost exacly how my 5x5 is. So apply that pic for my 5x5 question please.
Not if Laura Ohrndorf is your delegate.My clock is partially open with no tape, has a crack down a side, and has small superglue dots on some corners. Is it comp legal?
E: I should probably mention the dots of glue are on the inside of the casing, not the dial, and don’t affect any movement of the puzzle
Most FMC solutions (or many at least) start with edge orientation, so this makes sure that the edge orientation isn't super easy. I'm not sure on the specifics but I think regular scrambles would make it too simple or something? Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I also believe you always end the scramble with R' U' F. I hope this helped somewhatWhy do all FMC scrambles start and end with R' U' F?
