Weekly Competition 2012-43

For the weekly competition, we are now accepting results either of two ways:
1. Use http://www.speedsolving.com/competitions/. You will need to log in; please use the same username that you use on speedsolving.com! (You may feel free to use a different password, but use the same username.) Hopefully use of the website to enter your times will be self-explanatory, please post here or email Odder if you have questions.
2. Post here, as usual.

If you have posts in both places, for now we will give priority to posts within the thread, in case there are difficulties with the website. This is an experiment; if it works well, we hope to eventually go to full automation.

We follow the WCA regulations for all events. Here are some things that people often don't know, or are different from the regulations:

  • For Multi-BLD you can choose how many cubes you are going to do (let me know if 30 scrambles is not enough). If you attempt 5 cubes you must 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.
  • 6x6x6 and 7x7x7 will use an average of 5.

Notation and scrambling:
  • For all events (other than skewb) the Mark2 scrambler will be used.
  • For 4x4x4 and 5x5x5, a "w" means "Wide" so you turn not just the slice, but also the outer layer.
  • For 6x6x6 and 7x7x7, 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, Pochmann notation will be used.
  • For Square-1, 2x2x2, and 3x3x3, near-optimal random state scrambles will be used.
  • For Square1, the newest official scrambler is being used. This adds a slash whenever a slice move is to be applied.
  • For Clock, a shortened version of the official notation is used.
  • For Pyraminx, small letters are for the tips
  • Skewb scrambles are generated using Chen Shuang's scrambler, which uses Fixed Corner Notation.

This competition starts now and ends Monday/Tuesday nightchange GMT (officially). Automated results will close at the official time, but if you are slightly late, go ahead and post your results here and we will include them at our discretion if we think it's reasonable.

I suspect there will be some issues as we roll this new approach out; please let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Second and third were of by 1 3 cycle of corners each :( Third was 1:34.xy

3x3 MultiBLD: 6/7 (52:06) = 5 points
Last cube (first solved) was off by around 6 corners :(

4x4 BLD: DNF(24:19.76), DNF(19:14.98), DNF(21:21.51) = DNF
First one was 5 edges off, second 4 edges off, and third pretty scrambled...im going to start practicing 4x4 BLD regularly now.

3x3 FMC: DNF
Couldn't find even a decent start. I found a 35 moves skeleton leaving 3 corners, but didn't bother trying to insert them.

on the site there are some wrong scrambles. like match the scramble is 4x4, 7x7 blind is clock

Terribly sorry. Apparently the move to speedsolving.com is creating a few issues:

1. Some of the scrambles are wrong. I think we should rely on the scrambles here in this thread, rather than the ones on the website, since obviously some of the ones on the website don't fit. So please use the scrambles posted here, not the ones on the website.
2. Currently it is not possible to sign up for a new account to compete. If you are new here and want to compete, please simply post your results in this thread for now. We will probably get the ability to sign up added very soon, though, so this should be a very temporary problem.

Sorry for the inconvenience - please bear with us while we get the bugs out.

Wow, you are really getting better and better at big bld!

Thanks, I've not practice as much as before though, because I'm struggling to quit using visual by memorizing a list of letter pair images.
Gonna change execution too, I learned how to do comms for everything for bigcubes, but never use them for real attempt

The site isn't letting me submit my Multi blind attempt. I've tried 3 times now, logging out and back in, and completely restarting my computer. It just always shows up as blank/default (0, 0, 0.00) when I scroll down to check it. My attempt was 1/5 in 31:26.68

It doesn't let you input results that are DNF. I usually will just put 0/0 and write my result in the comment section. I did that this week (2/7).
