      Hey, there, I'm someone who's learning a variant of SSC. I believe I'm learning the ECE variant. However, I'm not sure which algset is better, for EP should I be doing EZD (which I would assume is the pure form of ECE-EZD) or should I be doing EPBL (which would not be ECE-EZD but instead just ECE?)
      Thank you

        Okay my bad, I have one last question. I've noticed that the EPBL algs don't all start from the same position. Like one bottom Z perm alg has the adjacent swap to the front and right while another one has the swap to the front and left. Is there a way to determine the positioning of the cycles or do I just have to memorize?

        It's just memorising like memorising AUFS for OLL/PLL

      Hi, is it possible you could post an example solve or two with each of your M-CELL variants? If you can start them with ZZ, that would be even better. Thank you!

      Have you ever given lessons to anyone? Would you?

        thing is I don't really want to put my FB on a public forum so I will put a challenge: if you can find me, I will give you those lessons.

        I know your name, but thats not much of a lead. Im running a search now though.

      Hi Shadowslice, I was wondering which one of your methods do you think has the greatest potential to beat CFOP.

        The way I see it, if anything, at best, M-CELL can equal (maybe slightly improve), Briggs/B2 maybe not unless some CP breakthrough is made (it was mostly experimental).

        Thus, I think SSC has the best shot if a good "second phase human kociemba" can be developed.

        Thanks, I am thinking of trying out SSC/ECE.

      I have an Example Solve that is very similar to Briggs2.
      The difference was that I preserved EO when it was already solved.

      Scramble: F2 U' F2 D2 U L2 U2 F2 U' L2 F' U2 R B2 L' D2 B' D2 U2 B2
      y' //Inspection
      L2 F' //1x2x2 Block
      r' U B2 U2 x' //Finish First Block + Corner Permutation
      U R' U r U2 R2 U' R U2 r //1x2x2 + Setup
      R U2 R U R' U R U' R2 U R U' R U' R' U R' //BLS + L/R Edges
      M2 //L4E

        That looks like a very nice solve :)
        Btw, did you recognise CP at the start of the solve or did that just work out to happen?

        The description of Solving CP in Briggs2 is a little confusing to me.

      Does anyone have any example solves of either Briggs or B2

      This is how I described SLS when I originally came up with the concept

      "Basically, orient the 5 remaining corners (outside of their layers) while inserting the remaining e-slice piece- from algs I've generated, it is a lower move count than WV but has twice as many cases (although selection of cases is much easier to control so it may only be necessary to learn a handful of cases and some set up moves)"

      However, the actual number needed turned out to be 23 although there were still many cases to filter through.

      Recently, i have added a subset to SLS called SLS-M (misoriented) which is to be used with PCMS or a variant of my method called SSC-M (the original method and step are now SSC-O and SLS-O as they dealt with cases where all the edges were oriented). SSC-M, on the other hand, does not have to have the edges oriented.

      For example algs of SLS-O see the first post in the thread (it's in the spoiler under SLS). There is also a full description in the thread as well.
