Hello, and welcome to the Race to Sub x on Skewb thread. This will be a weekly competition, where I post 12 scrambles (in fixed corner notation, or FCN) every Friday. At the end of each week, I will post the 3 fastest averages and 12 new scrambles. I will also post the results of anyone who graduated(achieved sub x 3 weeks in a row). Once you graduate, you can choose a new goal. Please use this format when posting your results:

Round x
Race to sub x
Cube
Method

Time 1
Time 2...

Time 12

Ao12:x.xxx

I hope you all enjoy, and I will keep this thread going unless nobody posts for 3 weeks.

Not bad. Haven't practiced skewb for a while so I'm starting with sub-10. That 5.xx single was awesome!

I've been wanting to get faster at skewb so maybe this race will motivate me to practice this event! I will do it every week if you keep posting rounds and results.

Thanks for hosting it!

When you calculate an average of 12, you take out the best and worst times, add up the middle 10 times, and divide by 10. (In other words, you find the mean of the middle 10 times.) Your average was an 8.297, not 8.1.

I almost +2ed the 3.489. Other than the close call, it was a pretty normal average, although there were too many 7s.

The app I was using (chap timer) gives you both the mean and average so I must have put the mean on accedent, I’ll change my post.
