3-move cross! Very lucky scramble. LL probably isn't move-optimal but that's the alg I use.

Well since all the edges are solved I might as well do unique solutions

FMC, 22. Basically did a comm and did insertion comms to finish lol

B2 R B * L2 B' R' B # L2 B

*= F' L' B2 L F L' B2 L
#= F R' F' L2 F R F' L2

B2 R B (F' L' B2 L F L' B2 L') B' R' B (F R' F' L2 F R F') B

Roux, 29. I tried to find most efficient solution w/o insertions and linear Roux

z2 D r2 R' D' r2 D'//FB
U2 R' U' r2 U R'//SB
R U' L' U R' U' L//CMLL
M' U2 M U M2 U' M' U2 M U'//LSE

Friday night game: try to understand what Attila does in his solves use his method. I think I understand it better now :)

B R2 B2 R' F //Orient edges and corners (5/5)
L' F2 B2 L' //One more E-layer edge (4/9)
U' B2 R' F2 B2 L //Domino reduction (6/15)
F2 U F2 D R2 //All but 3 corners -1 move (5/20)
L2 D R2 D' L2 D R2 D' B2 //Finish (9/29)

See on alg.cubing.net

B2 F2 D' B2 F2 U R2 D2 L2 U' R2 U' R B L' R2 U2 R' B' U


Here is my solving process:
R D2 R' B orient corners,
U' L2 U2 permute corners,
Then I start on inverse scramble:
( B2 M2 b2) 4 ce-pairs on U/D layer, corners not moved yet,
( U2 L2 U) solve the 3 "permutation moves", from the inverse direction,
( if I switch to normal with this premoves, the first 4 "orientation moves" gives any AB8E case).
So, switch back to normal, with premoves U' R2 U2 B2 R2 L2 B2,
L F2 R' F AB8E,
D2 L' U' B F' L orient edges,
D2 U B L2 R2 F' domino reduction,
B2 U2 B2 permute corners.
At this point, I leave the premoves, and try do permute corners/edges swap/E layer-cycle simultaneously,as far as I can solve it optimally:
L F2 R' F D2 L' U' B F' L D2 U B L2 R2 F' B2 U2 B2 domino reduction,
U B2 U2 permute corners,
L2 F2 B2 /L2/ undo (B2 M2 b2) from the inverse start,
/L2/ U D' B2 permute E-layer.

CFOP, 42. WV + anti-PLL is a good combination for those annoying dot cases, although this was just an ELL case.
