Fairly sure this is 3BLD PB. I think I might have had a sub 30 before, but possibly without box/random orientation

Average of 5: 29.07
1. 27.71 B2 D2 L2 R2 D' B2 U F2 U2 B2 D2 B' R F' R B' F2 R2 B U' B
2. (27.00) B2 U2 L2 U2 B' D2 L2 F2 D2 F' U' L2 D R' F L2 F' L B L2 F
3. 31.54 B2 D' R2 D2 U B2 D2 L2 B2 L2 R2 B L' F' U R' F' D R F' R2
4. 27.96 R2 D' R2 B2 D2 L2 U L2 B2 D' R2 B U L2 B' U L' U2 B2 F' R

First avg12 in more than three years! Previous PB was 40.99 in January 2015

32.98, 28.20, 39.69, 31.96, 23.77, 31.37, 34.70, 31.02, 40.34, 39.50, DNF(34.34), 47.03 = 35.68 avg12

The last solve was intense. My heart was beating so hard.

At 1:30+ "And that lady's and gentlemen is why you have ear protection":)
To be honest I thought that, that was really impressive that you did not lose your concentration and forget any of the pieces. I would have DNF'd that as soon as the phone rang;) so great job on that.

Also, I am pretty jealous (well not really) that you got parity/get parity every now and then. I have never needed to do the parity alg, which is nice because I do not have to worry about if there would be parity or not, but I have been trying to (slowly) figure out why that is and what I am doing different. But still great job on that solve and all the others and keep up the practice.

Honestly the FaceTime wasn’t so bad, especially compared to during memo when they kept forgetting I was BLD solving and trying to talk to me

I think your definition of parity might be different than mine, because I didn’t get parity in this solve? I consider parity to be when there is an odd number of edge and corner pairs and you have to apply an Ra perm.

I see, but I still think that is was great that you were able to keep you concentration for the whole blind attempt, so good job on that.

I do know that you get "Parity" when there are a odd number of edges/corners, and that the Ra perm will solve parity but I have never needed to do that on any OP/OP blind solve, that is all I was trying to say. You did the Ra perm in the solve, Right? because if you did, then that was the "Parity" alg, which I have never needed to do, even if there are odd edge/corners.

Regardless of this all, great job once again on the success and I look forward to seeing more soon.

I've read somewhere before that you don't get parity and as mentioned back then there's an easy way to find out why: Just do a reconstruction of your execution of a parity scramble (for example U), post it here and we will understand!

Thanks :)

I didn’t get parity though. I only used Ja, Jb, T and F.

I am planning on doing that soon, but thank you for reminding me about that. What do you mean when you say "(for example U)"?
I just did a quick sighted solve using OP/OP and for corners I started with the buffer (Duh) and I had 5 corners to solve before a break and then I broke into a new cycle and I had 3 pieces to solve, so with the first 5 and last 3 plus the break that equaled to 9, which is a odd number and after I did edges and corners everything was solved with out and parity.
This is just a quick example of what I do in OP/OP and I will try to provide a better example soon, but if you notice anything wrong in this post please let me know. Thanks.

Oops, I thought that the last alg you did was a Ra perm at first, but after looking back I was completely wrong, so sorry for my poor eyesight;).
Lastly, I only use the T perm for edges and the altered Y perm for corners. I do not use OP/OP much at all any more, but when I do those are the only 2 algs that I use.

Again sorry about my error, but thank you for correcting me.

"U" is an example scramble with parity I am suggesting. We only want to have a look at the system so we don't need a full legit scramble.
If you have 5 corner targets first and those solve 5 corners it shouldn't be possible that there are 4 more targets imo. Unless you mean you solved 4 corners + the buffer with the first 5 targets and all that was left was a 3-cycle outside of the buffer.
In that case you had parity indeed! Using OP the consequence would be that UB and UL are swapped after 9 corner targets so your edge memo would be different. If you memo UB and UL swapped in case of an odd number of targets for corners, it would explain why you don't get parity (that's a known and good trick to skip parity anyway). If you don't, I can't explain it. xD
Looking forward to your example reconstruction.

MBLD PB 48/48 in 58:44 [35:11]

amazing attempt for me :D PB by 4 points!

Memo: 35:11 [43.97/cube]
Exec: 23:33 [29.43/cube]
total: 58:44 [73.41/cube]

Previous PB was 46/48 in 58:39 (44 points)
This is also the n/n UWR! (best attempt with 100% cubes solved) Its my first perfect attempt over 20 cubes!

also last 3 attempts are 45/48, 45/48, 48/48 = 44.00 points mo3!
What is actual UWR? Does Maskow have a 50/50?
