All current (new) scramblers from the WCA are used.
  • For all 3x3x3 events (including FMC) Cube Explorer was used to generate a random position and provide an inverse scramble (generator) for that position.
  • For all cubes > 3x3x3 (mediumcubes) a "w" means "Wide" so you turn not just the slice, but also the outer layer.
  • For all cubes > 5x5x5 (bigcubes) normally a subscript number indicates the amount of layers to turn like a wide turn. U32 would mean to turn the the U layer and the 2 layers beneath it (3 in total) a half turn. However, this forum doesn't support subscript, so I transform the default notation to "3U2" notation which also means "turn the 3 uppermost layers a half turn".
  • For Megaminx R and D are "double layer moves of the entire megaminx. The U moves are normal U moves, not "double layer" or cube rotations
  • For Square1 the new notation is not entirely clear about when to perform a slice/half-turn. I adjusted the scrambles so that no slice-turns are to be performed at the beginning or the end (unless the scramble begins or ends with (0,0))
  • Clock hasn't changed, but just so you know: UddU u=-1,d=5 would mean Up-Left-pin is Up, Up-Right-pin is Down, Down-Left-pin is Down, Down-Right-pin is Up and that you need to turn a corner that has its pin up rotated counterclockwise by 1 hour and that you need to turn a corner that has its pin down rotated clockwise by 5 hours
  • Pyraminx small letters are for the tips
Just to make sure everyone understands: We follow the official WCA rules for all events. Here are some things that people often don't know:
  • For multiple blind you can choose how many cubes you are going to do (let me know if 15 scrambles is not enough). If you choose 5 cubes you have to use the first 5 scrambles.
  • For one-handed you can use both hands during inspection
  • For with feet you can only use feet during inspection
  • For 3x3x3 Fewest Moves there is a 1 hour time limit.
  • For relay you have 15 seconds of inspection in total, you can use any order to solve the cubes and the rest of the relay-rules should be obvious
For every event you participate in you will be rewarded points. You will also be rewarded points according to your ranking. Because this is quite a complicated system you can read about it in this thread. The results of the competition will be available as soon as possible after the competition closes at the end of the thread.

If you think other events should be added to this competition you can influence that in the 2008: Other events for Weekly competition thread

This competition starts now and ends wednesday/thursday nightchange (officialy), but I will only close a competition after the new one is on-line. If a competition doesn't start at wednesday/thursday nightchange you still get the full 7 days to participate.

When I started competing here, I was the slowest person in most of the events I competed in. So, welcome!

I've just looked at my cube after the last solve and a hidden U perm was missing :fp
WTF do I do?, do I make an avg of 4 and the last one is DNF? or do I put a +2 on the last time and make the avg again?
Do you mean a U perm, or a U turn? If it's a U perm, then the last one should be a DNF, and you throw that one out as your high time (making the 46.04 count). If it's just a U turn, then add +2 to the last time, which again makes it the high time, so you still throw it out, and the 46.04 counts. Either way gives you the same average (but a different one from the one you reported).

3x3x3 Fewest Moves: 37 moves

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

Regular scramble:
2x2x2: D F2 B R B' F' R'
2x cross: L B2 D' B2
Switch to inverse scramble, and use premoves L D L' for fourth pair, giving premoves (L D L' B2 D B2 L' R F B R' B' F2 D'):
3rd pair: D2 L D2 L2 D . L
4th pair: D F L' F' L
OLL: L B D B' D' L' D'
insert at .: D' R U2 R' D R U2 R'
D D' cancel before insertion; L L become L2 before OLL.

Comment: I just can't resist trying NISS. It's the most fun I've had doing fewest moves, so I keep wanting to do it, even if it's not helpful. At least my solutions are improving. And I'm getting better at it each week; I'm starting to get where I know without thinking where premoves go, which really helps.

Its okay.

Just barely sub 1:10 >_> Shouldn't have done this event first

3x3 OH : (31.37), 32.95, (37.02), 34.56, 31.97 = 33.16
Amazing average for me :D No sub 30's though

3x3 BLD : 3:32.79, DNF(4:00.87), 3:44.84 = 3:32.79
DNF was off by a corner cycle and 2 flipped edges. The last shoulda been way fast considering what I memorized.
