    Wow!!! Sub Matthew! Great!!!
    And the scramble was just quiet nice and not too lucky (for me it would have been 26 edges-targets + 1 flip and 20 corners-targets).
    I guess you'll get the UWR soon. How is your accuracy?

    My accuracy really depends on the time I spend on memorization. 8:00 or more memorization will give my accuracy of over 50%, but for anything under that, especially under 7 minutes, I am very inaccurate.

    Big congrats! Absolut appropriate reaction :cool:

    Now we're waiting for the fist sub15! After I got times below 24 min as a slowcuber it was clear to me that a good blindcuber can do sub15 with a good system.
    And I'm sure that your way of memorizing with adding colors is a big invention in megaminxblind, especially an invention for others to try it. And what is best: Imagine in the near future a megaminxblindcuber is asked: "But how do you memorize all that stuff?" and he will answer:
    "I use the
    Gray-Color-Sheme!"
    :D:D:D

    Thanks! Hopefully a sub-15 will come soon if I can get a solve with a fast memo that I don't forget!

    Also, the method for using colors was not originally mine, I learned the concept from a video put out by emolover, then altered his method to make it more efficient for me.

    Nice! That solve has splits that are very close to my 17:33, if you speed up execution you could be giving me a run for my money!

    But the best songwriter in the known universe did! Don't you know this one:
    Mama, take this blindfold away from me,
    there’s nothing unsolved anymore.
    Now what’s the time? Please let me see!
    Wow, that’s quite knockin’ out Matthew’s score!

    Knock-knock-knockin’ out Matthew’s score,
    knock-knock-knockin’ out Matthew’s score,
    knock-knock-knockin’ out Matthew’s score,
    this is quite knockin’ out Matthew’s score.

    It's taken a lot of practice, doing 5-10 solves each day for weeks, but that has all paid off with this 12:33

    (Now way)*5 for a sub6-exe is absolutely ok :D
    And he is just getting used to his new Megaminx! :eek:
     
  17. 5-10 solves per day is a lot, wow! What do you think is the limit to megaBLD?

    I may be able to sub-10, but past that would be pushing it. I'm not really sure yet though, because I didn't think I'd be able to get much faster than 15 minutes.

    This is a bit of an aside, but 12:33 for megaminx works out to 0.066 pieces memorized and solved per second, remarkably close to the 0.061 for @Roman 's 2-7 relay. Other WR figures are:
    3BLD: 1.08
    4BLD: 0.55
    5BLD: 0.368
    MBLD: 0.252
    6BLD: 0.251
    7BLD: 0.226
    8BLD: 0.083
    9BLD: 0.053
    Pyraminx crystal: 0.021
    Master kilominx: 0.017
    Gigaminx: 0.0088

    Not that all that means much, but based on those numbers my hunch is that with practice, technique, and talent (of which I must note that I have none) most puzzles could be memorized and solved at a rate of close to 0.25 pieces/second, or 3:20 for megaminx. Of course, megaminx does have a more complex geometry, which is more difficult, but on the other hand number of targets is closer to 4x4 which has been solved more than twice that speed per piece.
