Where can I find the best algorithms for full edge control during LS?

For memorising OLL, learn 1-2 per day. There are two things you can do which help: firstly, you can break the algorithm down into "triggers", i.e. common, short sequences of moves, for example R U R' U' or R' F R F'. Secondly, most algorithms involve taking out the FR pair and then moving it around before inserting it again. Some people find it helpful to track where the pair goes. Most people use a combination of these two methods to memorise any algorithms, and these techniques definitely work well for OLL.

There are plenty of resources on looking ahead which you'd be able to find with a quick search, but generally, if you're new to looking ahead, the best thing to do is to turn very slowly, so that you don't need to pause at all. Now this may mean turning at less than 1 TPS, but what's important is that you don't pause. You'll gradually be able to build up your turning speed until your times return to normal.

What was the best 3x3 speedcube from 2010 (Making a youtube video (I'll give credit))?

8. ### obelisk477Member

Obviously debatable, but if you just need one example, I'd go with Dayan Guhong

What is a "fullstep"

No skipped steps

11. ### obelisk477Member

A solve where there were no skips of any kind. So in CFOP a solve is fullstep if you have to solve the cross, all four F2L pairs, OLL, and PLL, and get skips on none of it.

I have a question. Does the Cubicle SM come with all the stuff the SM has in its original packaging?

So I just switched to using F2L along with the beginners method, (which is all I know), and my time dramatically increased. From a 50.01 pb, to 1:40s pb, averaging 2:15s with F2L. Is this normal? I’ve only been using it for about a week, and i’ve only been able to solve a cube at all for about a year. Thoughts?

Yes you will slow down at first with every new method, but in the end F2L is way faster

Once I finish learning full ZBLL, would it be a good choice to learn VHLS from all angles? I don't want to start over with a whole new method (ZZ), as I already average about 13 seconds with CFOP.
If it isn't a good choice, what should I do instead? I will not be learning full ZBLS.

If you want to learn and consistently use full ZBLL, but don't want to switch to ZZ-a, then the best thing to do is to also learn as much ZBLS as you can. Start with VHLS since many cases will be setups to those, but you'll want to learn more algs eventually. ZBLL is, usually, faster than OLL-PLL, so the more chances you can get to use it, the better.

Although, some ZBLS cases won't be worth using, but ofc there are plenty of ones which are worth learning.

(I don't think 13 is too late to be switching method (I switched at low 13), but of course don't do it if you don't want to!)

In time your F2L will get faster. Sometimes if you're learning F2L it might be more helpful/beneficial in the long run to learn intuitive F2L. Just make sure that you understand what's happening when you do an alg to the pieces.

Anyone here got a pdf of VLS and all its juicy algorithms?
