(35 STM)

I just invented a new Petrus variant because I felt like it and got a 35 move solution, of which 83% are RU moves.

It's worse than just normal Petrus though (right block -> coll -> epll).
I'll call this Petrus-DR, but this method has lots of permutations algs and kinda bad recog/ergonomics in general so don't do it lol.

Anyway, I'm just messing around. Here's the next scramble:

Just copied and pasted from csTimer. Nice man.
That’s good to hear, it was definitely a legit random state scramble then.

The scramble literally started with lots of oriented pieces, had a three move eo, a few more moves into literally almost htr, and double eo, then a did just a few half turns to make blocks and solve a big chunk of the cube, leaving a really short and easy setup into a single half-turn conjugate, and cancel one.

A bunch of nice solutions on this one!

Let's see if I can do better...

After trying a few more CFOP solutions (all of them hovering around 50-52 moves), it turns out that I somehow can't find a better CFOP solution on this good of a scramble. :(
