Such a show-off. Every time I get a low move count you come along and get a bunch of sub-35's with a variety of methods. It's bad for my ego.

Waiting for someone to post an APB solve... I'm afraid I'll butcher it with horrible 223

I've done a few solves with p223 (Mehta style) and EO pair. I feel like APB's main benefit is in the ZBLL finish so never really tried it.

APB is really fun and I find it much easier to get efficient solutions with it than any other method.
I'd probably switch to this over Nautilus but I don't really want to learn full ZBLL. Maybe one day...

There is the option of 223 > EOpair > LS > CDRLL > L5EP.

I didn't even think of that! It sounds like a great OS if there's not a great FB. How is the move count effected and what's the avg move count for DR L5EP? (Nautilus's L5EP is 7.38)

The average movecount is higher but the average MCC (Trangium's movecount coefficient) is about the same. By my calculation, average movecount: 9.167, average MCC: 12.767. Mehta has OO L5EP-DR. If you decide to do this, let me know, and I have alg sheets I generated.

EDIT: My approach was slightly different, starting Mehta FB > 3QB though.
