2,0/0,4/1,2/0,3/ Cubeshape
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! )
1,1/3,-3/-3,3/ Opp/opp CP

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.
^___^

'Tho, I'm not a super big fan of the opp/opp corner OBL cases - what do you think of 0,3 / 3,0 / -2,1 / 3,0 / for that case (from the ABF in the scramble)?

Next: (4, 3) / (3, 0) / (0, -3) / (2, -4) / (0, -3) / (-3, -3) / (-5, 0) / (-3, -3) / (1, 0) / (4, 0) / (5, 0) / (0, -4) / (0, -2)
Solution 1 (17.617 bleh):
5,0 / 2,0 / 1,0 / -4,0 / 3,0 / # 2-gen cubeshape
-4,-4 / -2,1 / 3,0 / -4,-1 / # OBL, I'm okay with this execution
0,1 / -3,0 / 3,0 / -3,0 / 0,3 / -3,3 / # CP, -/J (nothing to preserve in D, switching layers here)
0,4 / -1,-1 / 6,0 / 1,1 / # EP part 1 (opp/opp to reduce to U/adj); this was a mistake, should've done 0,4 / 5,-1 / -5,1 / to fix the E slice
5,3 / 3,3 / 1,0 / -2,-2 / 2,0 / 2,2 / -1,0 / -3,-3 / 0,2 / 0,-3 / 1,1 / 3,0 / 6,0 / 2,-3 # EP part 2 (U/adj + E flip)

Solution 2 (10.500 because I suck and can't sub-10):
y2 1,-4 / -2,0 / -4,1 / 3,0 / # cubeshape, preserving the yellow CEC block in DL
7,0 / -4,-1 / 3,0 / # OBL, one of Shari and my "core" cases, from when Shari first started doing full OBL
4,-5 / -3,0 / 3,3 / 0,-3 / # CP, somehow completely failing to recognize the A perm on bottom, so not choosing to solve T/A correctly
6,0 / 3,0 / -1,-1 / 3,0 / 7,1 / 5,-3 # EP, good U/U

Solution 3 (timed execution 10.649, I'm so bad at PBL):
y2 1,-4 / -2,0 / -4,1 / 3,0 / # same cubeshape as 2
7,0 / -4,-1 / 3,0 / # same OBL as 2
1,-2 (/ -3,0 / 3,3 / 0,-3 /) -4,2 (/ -3,0 / 3,3 / 0,3 / 0,6 /) 3,7 # PBL, T/A using 2 J/Js

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

z2 / 0,1 / 3,-2 / 1,2 / 0,3 / # cubeshape, predicting and preserving UL corner pair
2,0 / 1,4 / # OBL
-1,5 / 3,0 / -3,0 / 3,0 / -3,0 / # very very bad CP
1,-5 / 5,-1 / -3,0 / 1,1 / 0,-3 / -1,-1 / -2,4 / 2,0 # W/W EP

For cubeshape, I chose the z2 solution because I liked it better than / 0,1 / 4,-3 / 2,1 / 3,0 /. I do think that the "standard" solution of / 0,1 / -2,3 / -2,-1 / -3,0 / is better, but I don't get to preserve much nice that way.

For CP, I made a big mistake of not checking the PBL more carefully - I didn't see any blocks, so I just assumed that any solution would be roughly the same. Although I "lucked out" a little bit in that W/W is probably the best parity/parity blockless EP, even slightly more inspection would've shown that not aligning the U layer would've given adj on top - and adj/W is way better than W/W. Further, if I really didn't care about preserving anything at all, then doing -1,5 is better because aligned CP is better than misaligned CP almost always.

TL;DR - a good start with a fairly dumb finish Next: (3, 5) / (-2, -2) / (3, 0) / (0, -3) / (3, 0) / (3, 0) / (-4, 0) / (-3, -3) / (0, -1) / (2, 0) / (-2, 0) / (2, -5) / (1, 0) /

Yay PBL As a minor thing (because I'm really bad at big D moves), you could've done y2 -5,0 / to start your solve off.

That algorithm for CP was actually very cool, I like it a lot actually. ^^

I also am quite impressed with your O-perm parity cases, they are a lot smoother than the algs I learned, so I might consider switching to them. great stuff!
