Interesting! How did you find that? I'm convinced 2c/6 is under-searched so far. Here is a small tag to the recent small 2c/4 that makes it just on the pop 50 max: x = 17, y = 16, rule = B3/S23 bo2bo$o$o3bo$4o2$6bo$5bo3bo$5bo3b2o$5b6o$6bo2bobo$6bobob2o$5b2obo$5bo 2b3o$5bo4bo2bobo$6b3o4b3o$8bo4b4o!

While the former act in the super c/2 realm, the latter act in the sub c/2 realm. These two realms are vastly different, as anybody will agree who seriously touched both areas.

For higher widths, much steeper descents should be possible!Optimizations welcome, obviously!
