?
If it’s about the using a thread just for this, well I originally thought to post here, I thought it would be better to post it in the Group Theory sub section.

I just mean you told them something not true? i thought this was supposed to be explaining advanced group theory.

If F3L was possible then you would only need to know one OLL (M' U2 M U2 M' U M U2 M' U2 M).once you got done with F3L you would not have to spend a fraction of a second to recognize the OLL since you already know the OLL to solve. If F2L is more complicated then layer by Layer, and F2L is way faster, then why wouldn't F3L be faster then F2L?

Please explain more indepth what you mean by F3L, how would you go about solving it? Do you mean solving pairs of 3 pieces into the slots? Please elaborate.

I'm not exactly sure what you're thinking of, but I have a pretty good idea. Is this correct?

Example- Scr: L' D2 U' L2 F2 D L2 F2 R2 D2 U' R2 F' L' R2 U2 B' F' U' F'
(y')
L2 F' L' u' R' u // Cross
R' U R y' L' U' L2 U2 L' // 1st F3L
U' R' U2 M F M' U' R // 2nd F3L
R' F R F' U' F' U' F U // 3rd F3L
y R U2 R' U M' F' U2 F r' U2 R U R' U R U2 // Last F3L
U M' U M U' M' U M U M' U2 M U' // L4E

Either way, it is really, really difficult to solve with this. I struggled SOO MUCH with just this one solution. There's a lot of hard thinking involved sometimes, so this would be impossible to speedsolve, unless you want to get 3 minutes or something
F3L is WAAYY too hard even without the whole speedsolving aspect, which ya know is probably what you care about. So, my vote goes for F2L. Lmao

I think you're restricting yourself too much.

I mean it could work.
The steps for this "New Method" can be.
Cross -> First 4 Bars (What you call First 3 Layers in this thread) -> ELL

WOOHOO!!! We have a new method name!!!!
CFE or CFBE or CF4BE!!!

I just noticed looking at the Member’s section, and Today’s Birthdays...
Happy birthday Feliks !

I was just casual solving and then I got to the last pair and didn't solve EO before inserting the pair. I didn't even get the time to regret before seeing the OLL was F R U R' U' F' and pll skip.

I had the exact same thing happen to me a couple years ago, in competition:

Welp, nationals got cancelled postponed indefinitely here, thanks to the nCoV situation. (Probably a good thing because both my Wuji and Spark are in non-comp-legal conditions currently…)

Wait, does that include the world or just that area? Cause I already bought a plane ticket from Mars to NA champs, and it's very hard to get ahold of ISS Airlines.

Is the comp still listed on the WCA website? If yes, you're good to go.

Ok, I'm fine. I thought I was gonna have to cancel my plane ticket. It was very hard to get a ticket from mars to there, so I wasn't looking forward to contacting ISS Airlines.

I mean, I'd be more concerned about the return trip. We don't have any service to send people to Mars yet; how're you going to go back there?

It’s easy, he just has to book a normal plane flight, equipped with Mandalorian iron armour and a powerful big cannon. And also make sure he’s facing towards Mars. And make sure his colony is facing towards him. Then he can press the red button, escape the atmosphere, and have a happy journey to Mars

I hired the ISS to take me down, I'm just tying a rope to it before they drop me off. Then I'll climb up it and they'll take me back to Mars.

First official post as I am new to the forums and starting off with a general question I have had for a few years is which method looks cooler to watch some solve with? Just wanted to see what the cubers out there think.
