    I'll see what I can do but I am not super knowledgeable on Speed-heise so atm I'm not too confident in how well I'll be able to critique it.

    Why X sucks is back for another 4 videos!

    They will be released on alternate days at 7pm GMT starting today.

    As people seem to like me making fun of my own methods, we start off with M-CELL:

    Can you do 2x2 methods? Ortega first because it is so overrated

    Why 2GR sucks is up!
    I will eventually though probably only when I run out of even slightly relevant 3x3 methods.

    My responses to PCMS as a sub 25 columns first solver:

    M slice DNFs: there is a reason why my last step is PLL over something akin to LSE (Though I'm learning for fun).

    Awkward fingertricks: I agree on this. Columns compromises efficiency with manageability often, making it a bit harder than with something like CFOP per se

    L8E: Look at my reason for M slice DNFs

    Big cubes. L5EOP is helpful in 3x3 stage.

    The big one for me is look ahead. Cubies have more places to be, so they are harder to track.

    Why Hexagonal Francisco Sucks is up!
    This is the final video in this set and I think I will be including non-3x3 methods in the next set

    Well since it got leaked I guess I might as well post it here:
    Yes this is a joke. I will be uploading the actual video some time in the next couple months or so.

  12. Number 2 is so true.
    I've had two corner twists officially: 1 was my first solve ever, 1:40 or something, on a thunderclap.
    Second was a 47 on a GAN Air, and it cost me winning the competition, a mid 30 single, and a top 100 solve.

    Still, one of my favorite events.


    Glad to see videos are back up!
