Wow. We're approaching the mathematical limit. Guess the double-19 WR from yesterday was short-lived. But it still gives us 2 meta-world records: the most people tied at a WR, and most times a WR was tied/beaten during a weekend.

Chris chi said to me that he found this in like 15 minutes and was surprised no one else at the comp did. He tried all 9 scrambles at home, got a 24 25 26 (25.00 mean) with the r1 scrambles, 27 26 18 (23.67 mean) with the r2 scrambles, and 29 29 14 (24.00 mean) with the r3 scrambles. That 14 is uwr by 2 moves and might stand for like 10 years lol

It was @ChrisCuber123 actually, turns out it was a prank though...
I guess I should have been more suspicious - it did seem too good to be true.

I would probably have been less likely to fall for it if I hadn't just recently got 7 moves canceling through pure luck in a recent solve of my own. A thing like that makes canceling moves seem so easy.

Kind of a harsh prank, especially with what Walker followed it up with, and the fact that he's the lead of the WCA Ethics committee
