Here's the next scramble:

(0, 2) / (1, -2) / (-3, 0) / (-4, -1) / (4, -5) / (5, -3) / (-3, 0) / (4, 0) / (3, 0) / (4, -4) / (-2, 0) / (2, 0) / (6, 0)

CSP cough cough.

(0, 2) / (1, -2) / (-3, 0) / (-4, -1) / (4, -5) / (5, -3) / (-3, 0) / (4, 0) / (3, 0) / (4, -4) / (-2, 0) / (2, 0) / (6, 0)
Time: 23.851 (major fail)

Solution:
(-3, -2) / (4, 0) / (-2, 0) / (2, 0) / (-1, 0) / (-3, 0) / // Cube Shape
(1, -3) / (0, 3) / (-6, -3) / // CO
(0, -3) / (3, 0) / (-1, -1) / (-3, 0) / // EO
(0, -5) / (3, -3) / (0, 3) / (-3, 0) / (3, 0) / (-3, 0) / // CP
(1, -3) / (3, 0) / (-1, -1) / (-2, 1) / (5, 0) / (-3, -3) / (0, -1) / (0, -2) / (0, -4) / (0, -4) / (-4, 0) / (-2, 0) / (-5, 0) / (-3, 3) / (0, 6) / (-3, 0) // 2-look EP (this slowed me down)

Next: (-2, 0) / (-3, 3) / (-4, 2) / (0, -3) / (3, 0) / (-2, -2) / (2, 0) / (-3, -3) / (-3, 0) / (-3, -5) / (2, 0) / (6, 0) /

/4,0/0,-1/3,3/ | Cubeshape
-2,-3/2,-1/-2,1/0,3/2,-1/1,-2/-3,6/ | Sorta intuitive OBL. Not sure what I was doing here but it worked, I guess.
2,0/3,-3/-3,3/ 1,0/-3,0/3,3/0,-3/ 5,3 | PBL

That was a pretty cool solve.

Next: (4, 0) / (3, -3) / (-3, 0) / (5, -4) / (-3, 0) / (0, -3) / (1, 0) / (0, -3) / (3, 0) / (4, -4) / (-4, -2) / (2, 0) / (4, 0) /

Nice solution. I like the different approach. :)


Scramble: (4, 0) / (3, -3) / (-3, 0) / (5, -4) / (-3, 0) / (0, -3) / (1, 0) / (0, -3) / (3, 0) / (4, -4) / (-4, -2) / (2, 0) / (4, 0) /

Time: 8.22

I feel that this isn't a very legitimate time due to the fact that I unintentionally felt where parity was being made during the scramble ((-4, -2) / (2, 0) / (4, 0) /). As a result, it made inspecting for CSP a lot easier. Disregarding the time, I think this is a nice scramble since it shows the potential CSP has.

CSP: / (2,0) / (-2,2) / (5,-2) / (-3,0) /

CO: (-3,-1) /

EO: (1,1) / (3,0) / (3,0) / (-1,-1) / (-2,1) / (-3,0) /

CP: (-1,0) / (3,-3) / (-3,3) /

EP: (4,3) / (3,0) / (-1,1) / (-2,1) /

AUF: (5,0)

Off topic question, is there a thread for OBL/ PBL? I would like to look into that if it's been made. I've been struggling to find anything on the topic.

Next Scramble: (-2, 6) / (3, 0) / (3, 0) / (0, -3) / (0, -3) / (2, -1) / (-2, 0) / (3, 0) / (-4, 0) / (0, -5) / (-3, 0) / (0, -5)

Not really, I've never gone as far as generating full alg sets for either. Mostly I'm using cases from here and here, though.

Next Scramble: (-2, 6) / (3, 0) / (3, 0) / (0, -3) / (0, -3) / (2, -1) / (-2, 0) / (3, 0) / (-4, 0) / (0, -5) / (-3, 0) / (0, -5)
3,2/0,3/0,3/ | cubeshape
-5,-3/-4,5/ | CO
6,-3/-3,0/4,1/-4,-1/3,0/ | EO
-2,3/-3,0/3,3/0,-3/ 5,1/0,-3/0,3/0,-3/0,3/3,6 | PBL


Next: (-3, 5) / (3, 0) / (0, -3) / (3, 0) / (-3, 0) / (4, -2) / (2, 0) / (3, 0) / (1, -3) / (0, -1) / (4, 0) / (-4, -2) / (-2, -3)

0,-3/-2,0/2,0/-1,0/-3,0/ | cubeshape - I love this case, it's fast
0,-1/-2,1/-4,-1/ | OBL - I love this case too, it's also fast
6,4/-3,0/3,3/0,-3/ | CP *
1,0/-1,-1/6,0/1,1/ -1,2/0,-3/1,1/-1,2/6,-5 | EP

* I want to point out here that before performing the CP alg, I've already recognized the EP. With one 1x2 block on each layer, I know I'm going to have a U/U case. But because the R-perm and Gb are in the same group with this technique, and the layers line up when preserving the blocks, I know I'm going to have a "bad U's" (or "parallel U's") case. As I finish up the last turns of the CP algorithm I can already see the solved edges at UR and DL, so I can go straight into solving EP with no AUF and no pause for recognition. It's a little trick but it saves time. I didn't time the solve when I first did it, but it flows very well and ended up pretty fast.

Next: (0, 5) / (3, 0) / (-2, -5) / (0, -3) / (-4, -1) / (-3, -3) / (0, -5) / (3, 0) / (3, -4) / (6, -5) / (-3, 0)

CSP can be used for the scramble I gave. It's quite interesting how there are two different angles that could be presented to the solver. You can do a z2 after scrambling it and present it that way. Depending how scallop is made, even or odd parity will be present once you get to cube-shape. (Odd Parity CS: (0,6) / solve scallop) (Even Parity CS: (2,-4) / solve scallop) I found I ended up doing even parity if the puzzle was presented to me with a z2. I just thought that this was interesting.

Ooh, these solutions are always fun to look at :) Thanks for going through it!

Next: (-2,3) / (-4,5) / (0,-3) / (3,0) / (-3,0) / (-5,0) / (-3,0) / (0,-3) / (5,0) / (2,-2) / (-2,-3) / (-4,0) / (0,-4) /
z2
-4,0 / 2,-3 / 1,0 / -2,0 / -4,1 / 3,0 / # cubeshape bleh - I don't like this case, and I couldn't figure out anything nice to try to preserve either
1,6 / -1,-4 / 1,4 / # OBL yay it's a 3-slice; recognition is to try to make the state made after the 1,6 /, such that the lone corner and the ece block switch; you'll notice OBL's still a bit wip, given how D-heavy my solution here is
-4,-1 / -3,0 / 3,3 / 0,-3 / 1,6 / -3,0 / 3,3 / 0,-3 / 2,7 # PBL U/N, solved with two J/Js

man I love feeling like a wizard :p

Next: (0, 5) / (-2, 1) / (2, -4) / (1, -2) / (5, -4) / (-5, -3) / (-3, 0) / (3, -3) / (5, 0) / (-4, 0) / (-5, 0) / (2, -5)

so, I bet most people will just do the obvious and do cubeshape with / 0,-2 / blah blah, BUT! If instead you add a -2, 2 before the slice, you actually can do CS + CO :D

Eg, z2 2,-2 / 0,2 / 1,3 / 0,3 /

I didn't read your spoilery hax but luckily I do that cubeshape case stupidly. I didn't predict the skip in any way but I got an 8.56 first try.

0,4/3,0/-1,-1/-3,0/ EO
4,1/3,0/-3,0/-3,3/-3,0/3,0/ CP - nice and easy forced adj/adj

Cs: -4,6/4,0/1,2/3,0/
I already saw my first block during cs so that was easy: 0,1/-3,0/0,6
2nd block is pretty straightforward: 3,0/-3,0/3,0/-3,0
Cp+forcing m2 for the last two white edges: 6,0/3,0/-3,0/-3,3/-3,0/3,0/0,-3
Cancel into zperm: 2,-1/1,1/-4,-1/1,1/5,0

Next: (1,3) / (2,5) / (0,-3) / (-5,-2) / (0,-3) / (-4,0) / (0,-3) / (0,-1) / (3,-4) / (-2,0) / (0,-4) / (6,0) / (-3,-1)

Wait but this is Jay's case, isn't it?

-3,1/0,-2/0,2/0,-2/0,1/0,3/ CS - what you did
3,-1/1,-2/-4,-1/ OBL - what you did; nice job figuring it out :)

Not a great solution, got a 15.4 on it:
z2 -4,1 / 0,3 / -3,-1 / -3,0 / # cs, doing this to preserve the white CO bar on DL, and predict (because after z2 -4,1 / the corners are separated) that it's opp CO on top
0,-2 / -3,-3 / -1,2 / 0,3 / # OBL, learned from how Raul does single corner OBL
1,0 / -3,0 / 3,3 / 6,3 / #CP + swap layers, preserving blocks to get adj parity
0,6 / 0,3 / -3,0 / 3,0 / -3,0 / 0,-2 / -2,0 / 0,2 / 0,-4 / 2,0 / -2,0 / -4,1 / 3,0 / -3,6 # EP, -/adj

Oops, didn't see your post when I started writing mine, sorry for the hijack >.<

Solution:
z2 -4,-1 / 0,3 / -2,0 / 2,0 / -1,0 / -3,0 / # cubeshape, noting that there's a yellow corner bar on DL (preserved through the 2-gen shield/kite cubeshape solution)
0,3 / 3,0 / 4,1 / -1,-4 / # obl, bleh don't like this case, may be faster to just go to 3-edge swap
1,4 / -3,0 / 3,3 / 0,-3 / # cp, setting up for u/adj, which is faster for me than other alternatives
5,3 / 3,3 / 1,0 / -2,-2 / 2,0 / 2,2 / -1,0 / -3,-3 / 0,2 / 0,-3 / 1,1 / -3,0 / -4,6 # ep, u/adj

Solution:
-2,3 / 2,0 / -4,0 / -2,-1 / -3,0 / # cs, keeping DL bar alive; thought I was gonna have a CO skip, but the U layer corners in kite-scallop were opposite T__T
0,1 / -3,0 / -3,0 / # obl, welp at least this was easy :p
-1,-3 / -3,0 / 3,3 / 0,-3 / # cp, set up for -/adj (aka, solve all the blocks, notice it'll be -/adj)
0,6 / 0,3 / -3,0 / 3,0 / -3,0 / 0,-2 / -2,0 / 0,2 / 0,-4 / 2,0 / -2,0 / -4,1 / -3,0 / 6,0 / E2 # ep, doing the 6,6 by double-flicking the middle layer

0,1/3,0/-3,0/2,2/ OBL (I'll admit I didn't know this case before, but I do now! Thanks Shari/Michael! :D)

Such fast. Such easy cases. I did a different solve at first (didn't know the OBL) but first try on the execution I did a low 7 on this one.

God, I love OBL.
