# The Warp Scale for Speedcubing

#### Pyjam

I just thought that it would be fun to have a warp scale to measure performance.

I’ve thought that Warp-N would mean you can solve N cubes per minute.

So, Warp-1 is 1 cube per minute. Congratulation you just broke the 1-minute barrier.
Warp-2 is sub-30
Warp-3 is sub-20
Warp-4 is sub-15
Warp-5 is sub-12
Warp-6 is sub-10
Warp-7 is sub-8.5
Warp-8 is sub-7.5

The Faz is the only engine who broke the Warp-9 barrier or sub-6.67 during a competition.

Who will be the first to reach the mythical warp-10 or sub-6 ?

EDIT : The extended Warp scale !

Sorry, I fail to configure Excel to use point instead of comma.

this is a pretty good idea imo. I like how the difference between sub15 and sub10 is represented compared to sub60 and sub30

and it shows how noob sub20 actually is (I'm noob with sub20 too but im practising )

I believe that Faz really generates a warp field because his seconds are obviously much much longer than mine.

Sup-20 is where it's at.

It's a clever scale, but it is *technically* incorrect. For instance, sub-20 doesn't necessarily correspond with warp-3. In fact, I would doubt that it ever does. I doubt that someone who averages 19 seconds could solve 3 cubes sub-1, because of inspection, picking up cubes / putting them down, etc.

It's still a cool way of thinking about it though.

Interesting! I really like this scale! Anonymous, its not meant to be that literal. I think a cool feature of this scale is that there is a correlation between this and the fact that it takes longer to get faster as your times go down, and levels are fairly close to taking the same amount of time as opposed to the time it would take if the scale was one level per 5 seconds instead, if that makes any sense at all.

I like the scale too. However, I think it should be more towards averages. Not singles.

I agree. I've reached warp-9 with a lucky single but I'm really about warp-5.

#### Erzz

I like how the numbers correspond to common barriers. Coincidence? Or did we always subconsciously think about it that way?

Nothing is stopping it from being towards averages so you can refer to a warp-N average or warp-N single. I also like this idea of this scale.

Warp 2. Approaching Warp 3 soon.

Not even warp 5, how sad is that.

Warp-10! not warp-10, 10! = 10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1

Warp-5 single and warp-3 average here...
