How are you this efficient all the time!!??
Don't be impressed. I try many ways. I like doing FMC with the constraint of using a speed method. It's quite fun and some results are interesting, and sometimes I learn something.
Two days ago, I found this amazing 25 moves "Roux" solution.
It's very satisfying.

That's awesome!!
If only my blockbuilding was better...
Your solution is actually Roux but with a lot of influencing. So, no double quotes required.

@Pyjam is Roux good in HTM or only STM for FMC? everyone says it doesn't use a lot of moves but the WCA counts an M moves as 2 moves.
Obviously, anything will be the same or better if you use STM, which is what I usually use, especially with all of the slice moves that are being used today in algs.
