    1)Intiutive, and maybe some algs if you are having some cases that you really hate.
    2)Both
    3) Just do them over and over again until you will feel that in the fingers. (muscle memory)
    4) Just solve, solve and practising algs and lookahead.

    What Ickenicke said, but for 1) I'd say they'll both end up around the same place so what you may find useful is to look at the algs and just follow what they do, how the edge and corner move around, then work out how you could apply those sorts of moves if it was say on the left side, or on the back.

    Default How to be faster with F2l

    Hello,
    Yesterday I have saw RiDo's hunting story (thanks for him) and I just began to start with intuitive F2L.

    I was doing this in 35 seconds.
    Now i am doing in 20-25 seconds. I think that It will be hard to improve this time.

    So what can I do to improve it?

    PS: I don't want to learn the real algs.

    Considering you just learned it yesterday, I would say that the best way for you to improve at the moment is to simply practise it. When you become more experienced and faster at F2L, you will want to look into things like lookahead and better 'algorithms'.

    Also, please put a question mark at the end of your questions. When I read the thread title, I thought it was a tutorial on how to be faster with F2L.

    Good luck with improving.

    edit: Welcome to the forums!

    It just takes time. As you see the cases more often and become more comfortable solving each pair you'll just naturally get faster. Also you'll need to learn to look ahead ( i.e. not look at the pair you're solving, but the next pair you're about to solve).

    Ok thank you.

    I think I will practice during 1 week and see if my time solbing of F2L
    is under 15 seconds.
    If it is, then i will learn look ahead.
    If it isn't i will practice again.


    One more question:
    Is the rido's hunting story good?
    Because i'm afraid if these "algorithms" are not too long to do.

    lots of practice to get used to the cases
    lots of just playing around so you can get an understanding of pair+insert
    once you're comfortable with the idea of pair+inserts, learning to trust yourself to do it properly so you can now focus on planning the next insertion rather than focusing on the current one you're doing

    but lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of practice is good
    there's a reason the saying is practice makes perfect
    ZZ-solver now =D, get dem ZZ solves down yo~ you should too =D you know you want to :3

    are you learning with algorithms or intuitively? I found Badmephistos youtube series on f2l goodyou really need to understand iit, and then practice a lot in order to get your times down. Thhis is really important in pretty much any method you learn. really crucial with f2l though
