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 thursday/friday nightchange you still get the full 7 days to participate.

Meh :/

2x2x2 BLD: 5:28.77
1:59.63 + 2:35.89 = 4:35.52 DNF - Totally scrambled
2:18.54 + 2:06.17 = 4:24.72 DNF - 2 misoriented corners
3:18.16 + 2:10.61 = 5:28.77 Probably last place, but success nevertheless :)

Comment: Difficult blockbuild towards the end of F2L, then setting up the last layer was a complete mess! Lost the will to improve it :/

Overall - pretty terrible performance this week!

3x3x3: 16.19, 14.61, 14.78, 15.11, 13.42 = 14.83 pretty good
3x3x3 One Handed: 20.75, 21.19, 19.55, 21.16, 21.41 = 21.03 not good
Pyraminx: 7.91, 7.22, 7.34, 6.67, 5.81 = 7.08 pretty good!
Square-1: 24.67, 29.97, 30.03, 21.86, 19.30 = 25.50 quite good!
Clock: 11.95, 12.16, 9.80, 10.14, 13.80 = 11.42 single time is very good

Don't know whats going on with me, so sucky :(

2x2 : 5.91, 6.99, (4.80), 6.84, (7.06) = 6.56
Nothing special here :p

3x3 OH : (34.36), 26.13, 29.80, (25.25), 28.52 = 28.15
Cool :D

2x2 BLD : DNF(28.84), 1:02.96, 27.38 = 27.38
Yay finally a correct speed BLD :D

3x3 BLD : 2:09.80, 3:02.37, 2:53.61 = 2:09.80
On the 2nd I did T perms for no reason and spent time remembering how many I did and reversed them. I had to reverse my corner permutation and redo it on the 3rd because I realized I executed it wrong :( The first one owns though :D

Sq-1 : (30.12), (56.26), 53.21, 48.50, 52.50 = 51.40
Lol, I had an "LL skip" on the first solve

Megaminx : 2:19.30, 2:40.91, (2:05.16), (2:47.10), 2:37.89 = 2:30.70
Nice average, PB single :D Popped on the fourth though :( Coulda been way faster

Comment: Fair enough.

3x3 MultiBLD: 1/2 = 0 points (8:31.16 [4:00])
Comment: Second cube (first memorized) was off by 1 3 cycle of edges. Same thing happened last week, its so frustrating. Maybe I should start going for 3 cubes again.

40.08 - 38.07 - (41.05) - (34.64) - 38.48 = 38.88
Really bad...

3x3x3 OH:
2:02.73 - (1:39.80) - (2:17.43) - 1:59.52 - 1:52.38 = 1:58.21

3x3x3 Match the scramble:
(2:08.89) - 2:08.74 - (1:59.11) - 2:04.88 - 2:01.49 = 2:05.04
Better than last week.

I haven't cubing anything this week...:(
