Next Scramble: D2 U' R2 B2 L2 B2 R' D2 R D' F2 R2 D2 L F' U R2 D R

Exactly what I'd do speedsolved:

z2 y
L2 D R2 D L' F2 // Cross
R' F R F' R U' R' // First Pair
L' U2 L U' R' U' R // Second Pair
D L' U2 L D' // Third Pair
y2 R U2 R' U R U R2 F R F' // Final Pair
U R' U' R' F R F' R U' R' U2 R // OLL(CP)
U M' U M2 U M2 U M' U2 M2 U // (E)PLL
58 STM - Normal CFOP

What I could do if I went through scramble more than once:

z2
D F2 D2 R2 U' F' L2 // Easy X-cross
D R' U' R D' // Second Pair
U R' U2 R U2 R' U R // Third Pair
U L' U' L // Final Pair
U2 F' U' L' U L F // OLL
U' x z2 R' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2 // PLL
41 HTM - Cool CFOP

Next Scramble: U' L2 B2 U' B2 D2 R2 B2 L2 D F2 D R' U' R' F' L' D F' D2

Do you use Cube Explorer and many approaches to the scramble to get a movecount <30? I know you couldn’t do it by hand

This scramble has a square solved lol:

y z
U R’ u’ F R y
U r U r’
u R U’ R’
u U r U r’
u r U’ r’
u2 F R U R’ U’ F’
U’ y’ R’ U R U2 R’ U R
U2 R U R’ U’ R’ F R2 U’ R’ U’ R U R’ F’

Next Scramble: L2 B R' L U' F U2 R D' L F2 U2 L2 D2 L' U2 F2 L U2 R

Already a year, I have been solving Week Scrambles on Roux Method Speed Solvers

my usual Scramble <28 STM
30-35 STM - 5 minutes
28 - maybe 20 minutes or a couple of hours

What surprises you - see the FMC 20-22 HTM solution

FB normal + Pair (found two hours later - not my colors and I check them last)
CMLL + EO standard
LSE is terrible
And this is my worst FMC Solution for the year.

I do not use: Inserts (except M), NISS and Cube Explorer.
At first, I was peeping at ALG F2l, OLLCP, TCMLL, EOLRb - now I don’t need to peep.

At the moment, my tactic is to collect both FB and SS
Not ending SB, solve the corners (BTredux L5C, use different CMLLs to remove moves or insert edges into SB or EO)
In the worst case, I get L7E

WTF is this a real scramble...?
I doubt its real tbh

y’
R’ U R // 1st Pair
U’ y’ R U2 R2 U2 R // F2L-1
U2 R' F R U2 R' F' R // Pair up + EO
U L' U2 L // Insert
M2 U M' U2 M U M2 // PLL
28 STM - I drilled this solution and got it down to 4.97 seconds xD

Next scramble: F2 U B D' L F' U D B R F2 L2 F2 D2 L D2 F2 U2 B2 R' D2

Free pairs, why not blockbuild?
Abstract-ish speedsolves can be pretty fun

(z)
u’ r’ F r U2 r’ // 2x2x2
(y) F R F2 U’ R // Right Square
R U’ R’ U2 F U F’ // Front Square
U2 R U2 R2 F R F’ // Last F2L Pair
U’ R U R’ U’ R’ F R F’ // OLL
U L’ U2 L U L’ U2 R U’ L U R’ // PLL
46 moves, 13.4 second solve.

Next Scramble: L' B2 R2 B2 D B2 D' L2 U' B2 R2 L' F' R2 U' R2 B' L' F'

Interesting first pair on your solve

U' L2 // Square
R' F L' U L U' R' // Finish Hexagon
R2 U' R' U R2 D' // Two E Edges
E2 r U r' u r U' r' // Last Two E Edges
U2 y' R' U R U R' U2 R // CLS
U2 M' U M U2 M' U M // EO
R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F' u U // PLL
55 STM, Somewhat normal Hex-F solve

Next Scramble: L2 F' L U2 F' D2 R U F2 R2 U2 F2 U2 R' L' B2 D2 R L2 B2
