Nobody's made one of these in 2022, so I thought I would...

Here's a Race to Sub-X Thread for 3x3! I hope to keep it updated every week, so have fun!

The rules are simple:
Every week, there's a new set of 12 scrambles posted.
You announce what goal you have (e.g. sub-15), then do 12 solves in an average of 12. (Just take the best and worst one out, and average the rest.)
If you get an average of 12 that reaches your goal in three different weeks, then you win!

Here are the Week #1 scrambles:

1. D' F2 U' F R B' U F' B2 U' B2 R2 D B2 R2 B2 D2 L2 R
2. R2 F' D2 F U2 L2 F' L2 B' R2 D2 F2 U' R' D R B2 L2 B' U F
3. R2 B2 L2 D B2 D F2 U2 B2 D F2 L F R' D B U' B2 U2 R' D
4. B' R' U' F2 B2 D' R' F' R2 D2 B' L2 F' U2 B U2 B2 L2 U2 R B2
5. F' B' L2 D F' R2 D' L2 D2 F2 R' U2 L D2 F2 L D2 B' D
6. F R' B2 R2 U2 L2 U' R2 U2 F2 R2 F' R2 D' F' R' U' L' F'
7. B' D2 B U2 B D2 R2 D2 F2 U2 B2 U R' B' L U2 R' F2 R' D
8. B2 D' B2 D2 F2 D R2 D R2 D2 B2 L' B' R' F' U' F' R2 U' L2 F'
9. D2 F2 D' B2 U2 L2 D L2 U' F2 R2 D2 L' R' B F2 U B2 R F' D'
10. D L B' U L2 D2 B' U R2 L' F2 D2 R D2 B2 R U2 L' F2 R2 B'
11. L' U L2 F2 R2 F2 U F2 U' R2 U L2 R' D' B F R D B F D2
12. D2 F D' R2 B2 L2 F2 U2 B L2 D2 R2 D2 R2 U' B' R D' F' L' B

Have fun!

I'm a good couple of seconds slower with the iCarry than I am with either my Gan X or WRM Maglev (magnets are stronger than I like and it locks up something chronic) so chances are I would have made the target with either of those. Had a couple of CMLLs come up that I know but am slow to remember which hurt a couple of the times!

I was not expecting to do this good! My only regret is that the 23.73 wasn't a sub-20. I had a bad pause during EO, messed up an LXS alg that I knew, and almost did the wrong OCLL. Very happy overall.

Bummer to have a counting 15 in there, but nice to still have at least sub-13 ao12
Also out of curiosity where are you getting the scrambles from? And if I recall correctly in the past the requirement for reaching your goal was three consecutive weeks, is there a reason why that's changed?

OK, here are the results from last week:

Congratulations to everyone who competed!
I did receive some questions from people:

From @Bh13 :
Q: Also out of curiosity where are you getting the scrambles from?

A: I actually use cstimer.net, then click "Tools", then choose "ScrambleGenerator" from the list of tools. From there, I change the number from 5 to 12 and hit generate. As Sherlock Holmes would say, "It's elementary, really..."

Q: And if I recall correctly in the past the requirement for reaching your goal was three consecutive weeks, is there a reason why that's changed?

A: I wasn't aware of this, but I think this will be more inclusive this way, as there is the possibility that someone misses a week or something odd like that. I might implement a system wherein if one goes 4 weeks without competing and has not gotten to 3/3, they are disqualified and have to start over. I guess I'll see what works and what doesn't until then.

Q: Any timeline for when this week's scrambles will be posted?

A: Done. They're listed at the bottom of this post.

From @bulkocuber :

Q: Am I too late?

A: No, I am. Sorry about missing a day.
===========================================
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

Here are the scrambles for Week 2. Good luck!
