In this competition, we will do 1 FMC attempt every week. The catch is that you have to use the Roux method, and cannot apply any FMC-specific techniques such as premoves and insertions. Instead, you must use Roux and come up with the most efficient solution that you can. Just like official FMC attempts, you have 1 hour to come up with your solution. Your solution must be typed in alg.cubing.net, and posted in a spoiler before the deadline. I will post results every Sunday, so that is the deadline. Since we are using Roux, movecounts will be compated using the STM notation, where slice moves count as 1 move and double moves also count as 1. The competition will be organised in rounds. Each round consists of 10 weeks, and once the round ends, we start the next round, restarting at (for example,) round 2 week 1. Have fun!

Week 1 Scramble:
R2 F2 L2 D L2 U' F2 L2 R2 U' R F' U2 B2 L' B D R' D L'

Deadline: Sunday August 21 at 12 PM ET

Can we do non-matching/UFUB/etc. stuff? Also I'm assuming we're using STM

I think the better way to post solution is to type it in brackets of spoiler and to add link to alg.cubing.net. Spoiler bracket preserves of watching the solution before puttin own and allows to watch it when you want. Alg.cubing.net allows to visualize it. Putting it only in alg.cubing.net format is uncomfortable - you cant watch it on mobile.

35 STM. Nightmarish second block on a different solve, so hopefully simul blocks are allowed.

z' x' // insp
U R' D2 F R' U' r' U R2 // 2sq (9/9)
U' r' F' U2 F M U2 M' U L' // F2B (10/19)

@Ranzha Ohhhhh I never realized that building mismatching blocks with non-opposite colors on the bottom allows for twice as many options for LSE :D I shall play around with that!

But if I could do CMLL befor finishing SB it gives 43STM. With better LSE which I saw later - 41:

y2 F U' R u2 U' R U2 M' B'
U2 R U' R' U r' U' r' U
D R2 D L2 D' R2 D L2 D2 r //cmll 9mover with setup cancelation
M2 U' M' U M' U' M2 U' M2 U2 M U2 M

Another solution, inspired by that of @IuriG

Also after learning some EOLR, I improved the LSE on my original solution (the 30 STM one) by 1 move.
Not sure if this counts though, cuz I improved my solution a day after my hour was up :/
