A delegate who doesn't use a properly generated scramble would be removed from their delegate position, and any solves that were affected by it would be disqualified and made unofficial.

What this rule DOES do, though, is to allow for the extremely unlikely event that the official TNoodle scrambler might generate a 2-move scramble someday, leading to perhaps having a 7x7x7 single WR that is faster than the 2x2x2 single WR. :) But the odds of this happening are astronomically low.

Yes and I agree with the title of this thread

Like why 2 moves??? That is just stupidly low to say the least
If it was like 10 moves it would be reasonable because you can't really reverse it but 2?????

@wca change it NOW

I'm pretty sure the reason for that is how long it would take a computer to check for a solution within more than two moves on cubes such as 5x5-7x7 and megaminx.
