2x2: 8.40, 12.05, (6.21), 9.52, (12.72) = 9.99 (σ = 1.52)
Sub-10 by the skin of my teeth! That third one was a ridiculously easy Ortega solve

3x3: (22.88), 23.32, (40.62), 24.03, 32.90 = 26.75 (σ = 4.36)
Totally messed up the third third one :fp

3x3 Fewest Moves: 44 moves
Scramble: B2 R2 B2 L2 U2 B2 R2 D R2 D2 U B U2 F' R U B U' B' R2 F2
Solution:
2x2x2: U' B' U R2 B2 (5/5)
2x2x3: U' F2 L U F (5/10)
F2L minus slot: L U L2 U (4/14)
EO + last slot: L' U L2 U' L' F' L F L' U L2 U' (12/26)
OLL: B L2 B' L' B L' B2 (7/33)
PLL: L B' L' B' L' B' L B L B2 L (11/44) -- 23 min

Another terrible FM solve .. thought I was doing well, then couldn't find any Heise-style finish, and had to settle for my awful backup solve ending with OLL/PLL! Heise LL is such a head ****!

Interesing PLL you've got there, do you use it for speedsolving? Or just for FMC.

2x2: 11.984, 11.307, 8.529, 12.018, 9.160 = 10.817
Fail, been practising only 3x3 and 5x5 (started 2 days ago) for past 2 weeks. 2x2 not broken in.
3x3: 29.385, 30.273, 22.507, 33.310, 18.480 = 27.388
Remind me to never cube without warmup again. Or after a greasy kebab.
5x5: 7:24.264 7:21.06 6:42.06 7:14.32 7:12.58 = 7:15.987
Rubik's brand which centre pieces twist every move you do. I'd like to see someone sub 2:30 it.
2x2 BLD: 30.319+ DNF DNF = DNF
Damn, using Ortega, but tracking last layer pieces. Plus 2 wasn't accidental, I didn't know it needed U2
Pyraminx: 9.255 7.908 14.744 9.408 11.800 = 10.154
First solve no tips? Yayz for good average. 4th scramble was good yah?
OH: 1:15.640 1:29.800 1:45.310 1:09.870 1:17.560 = 1:25.00
Very good average, with PLL screwed up on 1:45.31. Had to redo part of f2l, plus OLL, and had PLL skip.

Sorry for double post. Will do OH later, and maybe feet and a few more 5x5 solves and FMC. 2x2 BLD went well, but I thought I would've gotten that second solve.

If you don't pop it first you will. Big ask though (not popping it). I wish I didn't love 5x5 so much.

Edit: 400th post. I'm such a post whore. :fp I can't help it.

3x3x3 FMC: 28 moves

Scramble: B2 R2 B2 L2 U2 B2 R2 D R2 D2 U B U2 F' R U B U' B' R2 F2

Solution: U' B' U R2 B2 U2 F2 U2 L2 F U F' L F L' U L U B' U B L' U2 L U L' U L

Explanation:

2x2x2 block: U' B' U R2 B2 (5)

nothing but LL: U2 F2 U2 L2 F U F' L F L' U L U B' U B (16)

LL: L' U2 L U L' U L (7)

Total: 28

I found a 32 moves solution after 10 minutes but it was full step (OLL+PLL after a 17 move F2L), so decided to play a bit with the pairs and worked.

Last weekly's FMC was 32 for me but found it after the deadline.

FMC is fun!

The deadline for week 42 is not reached yet . I'll download the results
in an hour or so. You can still enter your result if you want to.

My first weekly comp evarr... might enter it more regularly now

2x2: (6.70), (12.50), 7.05, 9.76, 9.17 = 8.66
My PB ave 5 3rd scramble quite easy.

3x3: 23.00, (22.51), 25.70, 25.38, (33.97) = 24.69
Mental lock up on last solve

3x3 OH: (36.28), (1:07.54), 1:03.84, 1:04.56, 51.23 = 59.88
No lucky cases, first solve is PB single but normal average

4x4: (2:30.72), 3:15.00, 2:58.82, (3:28.88), 3:08.62 = 3:07.48
First average of 5 I've ever actually done. Think I'll practice this more now...

2 - 4 Relay: 3:54.96
First time I've ever done this... Everything went wrong

Pyraminx: (16.81), 15.64, 12.13, (9.25), 15.23 = 14.33
Messed up first solve but 4th was my first ever sub10

PLL: L B' L' B' L' B' L B L B2 L (11/44) -- 23 min
44 moves

Another terrible FM solve .. thought I was doing well, then couldn't find any Heise-style finish, and had to settle for my awful backup solve ending with OLL/PLL! Heise LL is such a head ****!
Interesing PLL you've got there, do you use it for speedsolving? Or just for FMC.
Yup, at the moment I'm just using my speedsolving PLLs for FM. Most of them are optimal anyway. That one is Ub perm, I usually do it as: R' U R' U', R' U' R' U R U R2. I do plan on learning some more LL stuff for FM tho, because I'm finding Heise LL really difficult to do efficiently at the moment.

3x3: 29.385, 30.273, 22.507, 33.310, 18.480 = 27.388
Remind me to never cube without warmup again. Or after a greasy kebab.
You need to get yourself some of those textured stickers mate

3x3x3 FMC: 28 moves
Last weekly's FMC was 32 for me but found it after the deadline.

FMC is fun!
+1

Impressive solution!

... I find myself running out of time a lot tho, do you think it would be a good idea to have two FM events? 1 hour time limit and no time limit?

In deadline i meant the end of the week. I found that solution in 25-30 minutes.

I don't think no limit FMC would be a good idea, since we should do it like in competition. I always find my solution in the first half of the hour.

True, an hour is a good amount of time to find a reasonable solution. My lack of experience is probably the main problem

I do like having an unlimited time to explore the solution tho, I think its possible to be much more creative without time pressure. I'll maybe do some more FM practice here..

If I add 5x5 and OH to my previous post, it will count won't it? I got my 5x5 pb during it, on the 3rd scramble. I made a white cross before I had done all of the edge pairs, and fluked some multi-slotting.

You mean this weeks post I presume? Then you can choose between editing your previous post or making a new one. It does not matter as to your points in the result. So if you think it is a real good effort you can make a new post or else edit your old. It is of course a greater chance that other people notice a new post then edit of an old one.

2x2: 4.41, 4.80, 4.48, 5.03, 4.69 = 4.66
3x3: 11.69, 12.61, 14.36, 11.10, 13.53 = 12.61
4x4: 1:03.53, 58.72, 54.90, 1:13.27, 52.30 = 59.05 - consistant? I don't think so!
5x5: 1:43.70, 1:59.30, 1:41.08, 2:01.98, 1:42.63 = 1:48.54 - So inconsistant!!
7x7: 7:14.83, 6:24.36, 7:19.72, 6:20.91, 6:11.04 = 6:40.04 - This average is 19 seconds better than my previous single record
3x3 BLD: DNF, DNF, 3:33.64 = 3:33.64 - First was a pop, second was off by 3 edges, third was a bad time.
3x3OH: 27.18, 27.87, 21.08, DNF, 28.99 = 28.01
3x3 Feet: 2:39.59, 1:43.94, 2:23.75, 1:44.75, 2:08.05 = 2:05.52
2-4 relay: 1:19.07
2-5 relay: 3:21.06 -
Magic: 1.50, 1.50, 1.41, 1.65, 1.41 = 1.47 - Don't practise this
Clock: 12.50, 12.51, 17.81, 14.64, 13.26 = 13.47 - Good!
Megaminx: 1:11.97, 1:15.12, 1:03.86, 1:04.29, 1:06.29 = 1:07.52
Pyraminx: 5.19, 5.10, 5.81, 3.76, 6.40 = 5.37 - Good.
Square1: 16.99, 18.09, 24.52, 17.66, 31.62 = 20.09

Mats B (not V, great chance of mixing us up when you look at the results! )

2x2: 10.97 17.56 17.59 20.94 41.90 = 18.70 ok
3x3: 72.05 55.65 51.24 108.47:confused: 51.73 = 59.81 not even one sub50
4x4: 3:39.33 3:28.36 3:12.61 3:13.42 DNF = 3:27.04 -
5x5: 8:22.48 8:12.01 7:52.88 8:59.75 7:58.59 = 8:11.03 a little progress
2-4Rel: = 6:27.42

Blind
2x2BLD: 49.25 36.05 dnf = 36.05 ok
3x3BLD: dnf (1:43!) 1:57.84 dnf (2:15) = 1:57.84
Sub-2 is still real good. And almost a PB with the first.
4x4BLD: 11:57 dnf (11:03) dnf (12:17) = 11:57
The second I executed one edge alg incorrectly. Otherwise good.
5x5BLD: dnf (23:30) dnf (27:20) 27:38 = 27:38
The first I went full speed and sort of could not stop although I realized I was wrong.
Then I did not manage to correct what I did incorrect. Almost the same with #2. Last
one was rather easy.
Multi 3/7 = DNF in 59:08
No less than three cubes had two flipped edges. One had a 3-cycle corners.
6x6 (BLD) 20:06 23:15 26:00 27:32.55 dnf (pop [1:05 memo]) = 25:35.96
#1-4 bld algs, #5 bld
2-5 Relay = DNF [ 1:01:46, memo 38 min]
The 2x2 was ok , 3x3 had two edges flipped, again I mixed up memo on the 4x4 and 5x5.
But they were wrong anyway.
MTS dnf, dnf, 4:37, dnf, dnf = DNF
Most did not have parity, so should have been better
