Well after a long break from updating these threads, I will start them up again. I will keep the rounds going from the number it was last at, but for anyone that has posted here previously, please post a new goal you are going for, and all will start at 0/3 for success.

For anyone new to this thread, each week I will post a new set of scrambles for everyone to use, and once you have completed your solves, post your times with the scrambles here and if you get your goal 3 weeks in a row, then you will graduate, and you can then set a new goal. If however you get your goal one week, but fail the next week then you will be reset to 0/3. Please see older posts above for any thoughts you might have, or post them and I will get back to you. Additionally, if you miss a week, then no worries and you will keep your progress from your last post.

I will update everyone's results at the end of the week and post new scrambles each Sunday evening.


Lastly, please post your posts like this:

Round 31
Race to sub-30 (0/3)
Avg of 12: 35.33

Time List:
1. (21.77)
2. (DNF(27.39))
3. 36.30
4. 1:06.57 (stupid pins!!)
5. 41.20
6. 57.23
7. 23.61
8. 29.37
9. 24.52
10. 23.98
11. 24.92
12. 25.57

So without further to do, here is the new set of scrambles for this week:

Round 37 Scrambles
1. UR4+ DR1+ DL1- UL5+ U4- D3+ y2 UR5- R4+ D2- L1+ ALL6+ DL
2. DL5+ UL2- R2+ ALL4- y2 DR3- DL5- UL3- U5+ D6+ L3+ UR DL

Glad to see this thread make a comeback, thanks for continuing! If we continue into future weeks though could you possibly use WCA scrambles please? I probably misscrambled several of these just due to the weird move order. anyway. :p

Avg of 12: 6.82

Time List:
1. 7.23
2. (DNF(6.85)[ALL+1])

5. 6.89

7. (5.86)
8. 6.40
9. 6.81
10. 7.09
11. 6.87

You are very welcome, and I am glad to be able to start them up again.

Regarding the scrambles, those are the same ones I have used in the past on this thread, what the weekly comp uses, and what I remember using in competitions (although I haven't scrambled in WCA comps for a long time due to that event not being at any comp I have been to recently. Could you please post a WCA notated Clock scramble, so I see the difference? Thanks and sorry for the confusion.

EDIT: Here is a scramble from a comp I as at back in May, and it is identical to what I posted in this thread for notation-wise:

UR3- DR1+ DL3- UL2+ U1+ R1+ D3+ L2+ ALL2- y2 U6+ R2+ D1- L1+ ALL6+ UR DR DL

Lastly, the scrambles I posted above are from CSTimer, under WCA events.

Lastly, the scrambles I posted above are from CSTimer, under WCA events.
Optimal uses the same notation as WCA, but they are optimal scrambles so they don't follow a certain pin order, and WCA scrambles follow a pin order. WCA pin order is UR DR DL UL U R D L ALL y2 U R D L ALL, so you can have things like ALL0+, but with optimal you don't follow any pin order (which makes scrambling slower) and you don't have things like U0+.
Example:
WCA: UR3- DR0+ DL5- UL0+ U0+ R2- D6+ L5- ALL5+ y2 U5- R3+ D0+ L5+ ALL1- DR UL (follows UR DR DL UL U R D L ALL y2 U R D L ALL WCA pin order)
Optimal: UR4+ UL4- R2- D4- L5- ALL6+ y2 DR3+ DL5+ U3+ R3+ D3+ L6+ DL (doesn't follow WCA pin order)

I hope that makes sense.

That makes complete sense and thank you for clarifying that. I should have noticed that, but thanks.

Are you okay if I keep doing the scrambles I have been doing? If not is there a place (other then TNODDLE) for "correct" scrambles?

left drop-down set to “wca” and right one set to “clock” should do the trick

This thread may get me to finally fix my clock and practice... I need to, as I’m organizing a comp relatively soon with it.
Thanks for the info, and if you would still like to take over this thread you are more then welcome to do so. If I don't hear anything from you be tomorrow (Monday) evening I will post new scramble, but if you get it before then, then wonderful.

Thanks again for taking over this thread. And I should have specified when I posted the how to "post your times" but those are not my times. I just copied and pasted them from a older post as an example. I know I am back at being slow on Clock, but not that slow, haha. I am averaging about 15ish currently.
