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 thursday/friday 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.

2x2: 10.15, 10.80, 9.22, 13.33, 9.08 = 10.06
Comment: Full Ortega. Finally bothered my backside to learn 3 more algs.
3x3: 24.78, 19.59, 25.40, 27.58, 24.19 = 24.79
Comment: The second was amazing. Really easy 2look last layer, and pairs just kept jumping out at me. Almost a PB.
4x4: 1.35.78 O, 1.19.81, 1.29.58 O, 1.23.09, 1.26.06 = 1.26.24
Comment: Amazingly, only 2 O paritys in the entire lot.
5x5: 2.46.69, 2.48.81, 2.38.97, 2.25.88, 2.41.50 = 2.42.39
Comment: 0.39 secs slower than last week lol. Very nice single. PB?
6x6: 5.12.69, 5.17.70, 5.23.89, 5.17.76, 5.13.97 = 5.16.48
Comment: Very consistent. 2 double paritys and 3 single paritys. Battling my BlackV6, who I have named Ebenezer, makes solving my white one a pleasure.
7x7: 8.15.81, 8.10.01, 8.06.98, 8.03.59, 8.16.88 = 8.10.93
Comment: Wow. That was a PBavg by approximately two time zones! The V7 I got for Xmas is starting to feel really nice now. I'll hopefully get a sub8 single soon. The final solve would have been close, had I not have missed the yellow orange outer wings being flipped untill well into my F2L.
3x3OH: 1.20.03, 1.12.42, 1.18.45, 49.67, 1.09.81 = 1.13.56
Comment: Amazing 4th solve Huge PB in the region of 10secs. Non Lucky too. Simple FRUR'U'F' and Aperm.
2-4 Relay: 2.18.66
Comment: Wow, that was bad. 20sec 2x2 to start, a solid 25 3x3, then a 1.35ish 4x4 with no parity. I'm glad I'm saying that is bad, because it shows improvement - 2months ago I would have jumped for joy.
2-5 Relay: 5.04.18
Comment: Okay I guess.
Magic: 1.58, 1.59, DNF, 1.44, 1.77 = 1.65avg

Square1: 59.59, 1.24.24, 1.26.22, DNF, 46.36 = 1.16.68
Comment: Nice on 5th lol. DNF'd because I decided to pop my cube, and lose the piece beneath the chair.

Second day borrowing a Pyraminx. I'll learn a real method once I get my own.

Comment: WOW, new single PB!!! :D:D:D PLL skip. Good average as well, could have been better though.

3x3 OH: 34.05, 42.51, (31.05), 1:00.70, (1:01.53) = 45.75
Comment: Ugh, I messed up the E perms on the last 2 solves. Would have been such a good average otherwise.

2x2 BLD: 49.00, DNF(1:12.95), DNF(44.04) = 49.00
Comment: Quite good.

3x3 BLD: 2:39.59, 2:19.72, DNF(3:31.70) = 2:19:72
Comment: Good.

3x3 MultiBLD: 1/2 = 0 points (9:03:52 [4:30])
Comment: I memorized wrongly for the second cube (first solved), which I realized midway between execution of the same cube. I correctly figured out what my error was, this caused me to undo half my solve. Unfortunately, the same cube was 1 3 cycle of edges off, so I think I did a mistake during the undoing.

3x3 MTS: (1:17.07), 1:43.37, (2:08.17), 1:29.36, 1:17.62 = 1:30:12
Comment: It is tough using two different colour schemes...I hope there is no rule against doing so.

3x3 FMC: DNF
Comment: Horrible, best I had was a 47 move solution. I could get some 12-13 move 2x2x3 blocks, nothing useful beyond that.

3x3x3 One Handed: 1:49.40, 1:28.78, (DNF), 1:08.84, (1:02.11) = 1:29.01
Well, I now know that OH solving is actually fun.

2x2x2 + 3x3x3 + 4x4x4 Relay: 2:43.13
2x2x2 + 3x3x3 + 4x4x4 + 5x5x5 Relay: 7:07.11
Pretty average relays.

Magic: 2.09, 1.93, (1.65), (2.15), 1.93 = 1.98
Megaminx: (5:35.09), 5:33.94, 5:25.40, 4:32.34, (4:09.77) = 5:10.56
Pyraminx: 43.15, 30.71, (30.05), 31.30, (46.13) = 35.05
Square-1: 4:27.90, 2:38.55, (DNF), 3:40.22, (1:48.77) = 3:35.56
I suck at all of these.
