Hello =D

I tested the move count of my pyraminx method (WO, the pyraminx method I'm best with)... and I used a little bit over the WCA inspection to be sure I found the (maybe?) best way to do step 1 (I solved it mostly 2-step... so yeah)

I am now thinking, what method is closest to the optimal solution? and if you are good at an existing method, please count your moves and do an average (with qqtimer you can just count the length of the scramble to see what the optimal solution is for the scramble...) so we can compare...

If you have an idea of a method that might be very close to the optimal solution, please tell me the method's steps.. then I will learn it and do an average, unless you do it by yourself (I will learn it anyway lol)

I will start attributing with my average using WO (the move counts in blue are scrambles where I had an optimal solution ):

1. 10[8] B L B' R' U L' B' R'

2. (7[7]) U' L R U' L' R L'

3. 9[7] L' R B' U R' B' L

4. 8[8] R' U' L R' B L' U' L'

5. 13[8] U B' U B' R' U' B' U

6. 9[8] B U' L B' L B R' L'

7. 9[8] R' U L' B R U' L U

8. 10[8] U L' R' U B U R' L

9. 11[8] U L B' R' U B' L U

10. 12[6] L R U' L B U' :fp

11. 10[9] U B R' B' R L' B L' R

12. 10[8] B L' B U' L B U' L

this leaves with an average of 9.8 moves and with an average of 1.8 moves away from optimal solution... (remember possible cancellations... and don't count the tips...)
