Solving of MT eucl torus {3,6} 8c F 0:1:0 V 1:0:0 —– 07/13/2012 (101 twists)

Solving of MT eucl torus {3,6} 8c V 0:0:1 —– 07/14/2012 (42 twists)

Solving of MT eucl torus {3,6} 8c F 0:0:1 —– 07/23/2012 (379 twists)

The first two were easy, but the third is very hard. I do not understand how Nan can do this in 138 moves.

MT eucl torus {3,6} 8c F 0:0:1

Near commutator for edges: color arrangement is important else you are left with a single edge swap.

Far commutator for faces: It is not easy at all to find a single 3-cycle of faces. I found one with 38 moves.

The actual ranking for MT solves is

- Nan 146
- Eduard 117
- Melinda 17
- Roice 2
- Andrey 1

Are there solvers who don’t insert their name in the table?
