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) a number before the letter indicates the amount of layers to turn like a wide turn. "3U2" would mean "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 official scrambler is being used. This means that a slice turn should be applied after every move. If there is a (0,0) at the end, that means there were 41 moves so far, so you do a second slice move, to cancel out the first one. That should result in effectively 40 moves per scramble.
  • 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 20 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 Friday/Saturday nightchange GMT (officialy), but I will only close a competition after the new one is on-line. If a competition doesn't start at Friday/Saturday nightchange you still get the full 7 days to participate.

(10.14) (8.49) 9.06 8.88 9.90 => 9.28

25.90 27.12 (31.77) (22.57) 26.90 => 26.64
smileyface. 22 was a PLL skip

(3:00.04) 2:35.86 2:41.82 (2:19.85) 2:50.63 => 2:42.77

5:57.57 6:04.58 5:57.05 (8:02.18) (5:40.37) => 5:59.73
i tried a different edge-pairing method for the 4th solve. you can see how well that worked out for me

DNF[11:32.68] 13:35.30 11:57.89 =>11:57.89
2 swapped edges, WOo! first success on video!, best time yet!

1:40.94 1:13.25 (1:42.17) (1:12.68) 1:18.69 =>1:24.30

(6:05.21) 2:24.45 (2:05.36) 3:10.37 2:21.95 => 2:38.92
realized I messed up and had to start over on the first solve. everything else was meh as usual

tried petrus two ways, didn't work out too well (over 70 moves) so i went with good ol' CFOP
Cross: L’ D’ F’ R D U R2 (7/7)
F2L#1: x2 U2 F’ U B U B’ (6/13)
F2L#2: U2 B’ U F2 U2 F’ (6/19)

PLL: y' R2 B' R' U' R' U R B R' U2 R U2 R' (13/55)
AUF: U2 (1/56)

4x4 felt meh

4 felt bad again, but the 5x5 felt pretty fluid

2.19 2.11 (2.43) 2.42 (2.09) => 2.24

5:01.89 (3:33.21) 6:43.72 (6:51.37) 4:23.98 > 5:23.20
awful. other than a new pb, i messed up on every solve except that and the last. just terrible

(10.87) 15.28 11.07 (18.82) 16.75 => 14.37

36.67 (29.59) 32.09 (1:20.39) 52.87 => 40.54
not bad, using 2look kirmeep
not entirely sure how to scramble, as im used to kirmeeps FCN. next week you should post an explanation of this notation

MegaMinx: 4:38.36 4:12.06 (5:55.22) 5:07.52 (4:03.96) = 4:39.31
I'm not good at the minx at all; I will practice this after a few other goals have been reached.

2x2x2 minus one move : L F R2 D' .. U' F2 (6)
More blocks : U L R B2 L2 .. U' R B' R' B (10, 16)
Last cross : U2 S U2 S' (6, 22)

CLLEO minus one move : R' F' U' F U (5, 34)
U-PLL : R' U B' F R2 F' B U R2 (9, 43)
AUF : U (1, 44)

Failed on the end of F2L, the rest was ok.
Love the CLLEO :p
To bad it (or the mirror) did not skip EP :/

Did you guys note that I never use premoves or inverse scrambles, only rarley use inserts and that I almost always start in yellow? :p It is actually pretty close to how I speedsolve, only the starts differs.

Edit: I tested for the optimal LL, that was 13f, I used 14+AUF, and that pleases me =)

3x3 Feet: 1:27.13, 1:20.44, (1:05.05), (1:32.25), 1:12.41 => 1:19.99
Again not too good but I'm happier that last week. All non-lucky. But why do I get a time above 90? more practice.
Thinking about this avg makes it even worse. My avg of 100 Friday (yesterday) was even faster than this avg of 5. (by 2 sec.)
