    Okay, to start off, I am a brand new cuber (1 maybe 2 months). I just got a V Cube 7 and i can't solve (I am TERRIBLE). So i just want some advise on wether or not i should look up how to solve it.

    P.S. I already have a 3x3 and a 2x2

    If you have it, then really, why not? Come on, moral dilemma?

    Look up 4x4 or 5x5 and see if you can do 7x7 after that. If not, sure - nobody cares if you looked it up or figured it out.

    My mom always said what is the point of the puzzle if you look up how to solve it.

    What's the point of learning a language if you have to look it up? What's the point of learning mathematics if you have to be taught it? Etc.

    You looked up 3x3 so why not 7x7? No one expects you to solve a 7x7 intuitivly.(spelling?)

    To be honest, I doubt that anybody figured out how to solve a 7x7 on their own, while only owning 3x3 and 2x2.

    Lube it up good. It will take some months to break it in, but it will get better in time.

    I used lubix and it is still hard to turn is that normal?
     
  13. Ya, you just have to solve it over and over and it will get better.

    Do you know how to solve a 4x4 and 5x5? If you don't know the reduction method (the method of solving big cubes), then it will be nearly impossible for you to solve it by yourself.

    Also, I don't believe the purpose of cubing is to simply try to figure out the puzzle. It's equally as fun to solve it using a method, and tying to get faster, or just seeing the different cases come up and solve it without worries about time.

    How is this a moral dilemma? When I read the thread title I assumed it would be about knockoffs. And that isn't even a moral dilemma.

    I didn't know how else to word this but now that we are one that topic, what is your opinion on v cube knockoffs?

    Crap. I bought a YJ at half the price, probably the worst regret I'd have buying a puzzle. Just solve it a lot. I know V-Cubes especially are bad when new, but it gets better.
