I'm really, really curious as to why this is happening, but I've beaten my multiBLD PB for the 4th time within the last two weeks.

48/50 in 57:43[37:26]
DNF were from forgetting an edge image, and from forgetting a corner image.

I think I've got some ideal combination of healthy sleep/stress levels lately, or something like that, because my diet/exercise is all roughly the same as it has been for the last several months. I need to pinpoint this, and repeat :p

Really proud of these memo splits as well:

memo+review 1-8: 3:24
memo+review 9-16: 3:49
review 1-16: 2:31
memo+review 17-24: 3:48
memo+review 25-32: 3:46
review 17-32: 2:47
review 1-32: 5:18
memo+review 33-40: 4:06
memo+review 41-48: 3:59
review 33-48: 2:49
memo 49+50: 1:00 (this is the only part that I would consider bad lol)

today's mbld attempt ended up being 46/50 in 58:11+, my second best attempt at 50 cubes, and this gave me:

44.00 points mo3 (45/46 in 57:27, 48/50 in 57:43, 46/50 in 58:11+)

42.67 points ao5 (42/42 54:52 (NAR), 38/46 in 59:13, then those three^^^)

36.60 points ao12, where the next three attempts that I can roll are 38, 22, and 30 points respectively, meaning that if my next three attempts are all 42 points, I can get a 40.00 points ao12 :p

Lol it looks like I'm flooding this thread lately but nobody else is posting!! :mad:

First attempt since the 46/50 in my last post: 48/50 in 1:00:00 (done for weekly comp!)

Funny/sad thing about this attempt: I finished solving the last cube at 57:27, but I had one cube I had set aside and I sat with it and tried to remember it until 1:01:25, and failed to remember it.
If I had just not tried to remember that cube this would have been PB :p

Also I've gotten all new PB averages!

44.67 mo3 (48/50, 46/50, 48/50)
44.00 WB ao5 :D (38/46, 45/46, 48/50, 46/50, 48/50)
37.40 ao12 (36/50, 38/46, 44/46, 40/46, 43/46, 37/50, 42/42, 38/46, 45/46, 48/50, 46/50, 48/50)

PB ao50 by over 4 seconds, been quite a while since I got one of these. Had to go ridiculously safe near the end because I already had 3 DNFs :/

At MPEI Open 2018 I won 4BLD, 5BLD, MBLD and got 2nd place in 3BLD!

5BLD ER and WR2 3:42.25! Sub-Kaijun, I'm happy to finally get ER!!
Won 4BLD with 2:08.09 single. That's a really bad time for me, it was a very bad scramble and a very safe attempt, but I'm happy that I got 1st place :D
MBLD solve was 30/42 1:00:02+, honestly I'm satisfied with it considering the MBLD organisation and conditions at this comp - they were the worst I've experienced so far.
In 3BLD I got 23.90, 33.23, 23.47: 26.87 mean - 2nd solve was pretty sad, could be NR mean, and I didn't win, but I'm not complaining because I haven't been practicing 3BLD lately.

Got a 24.48 PB ao12 and 22.92 PB ao5 yesterday, was kind of iffy about it because it was on chaotimer and it seemed like there was a lot of easy scrambles, but now after checking all of them I'm feeling better about it :p definitely gonna count these :)

The ao5 alg count was 9, 10, 9, 10, 10, so really relatively not lucky for a PB ao5 actually
Ao12 alg count was 10, 9, 10, 9, 10, 10, 11, 9, 9, 10, 11, so 2 algs less than average. Fairly lucky for an ao12 but definitely not crazy lucky

(not reconstructing because i didnt record thus can't remember how i cycle broke in a lot of cases, just counting number of targets/algs)
1. 23.99 U B2 U' F2 D' L2 D B2 D2 R' F' L' D2 B' R U2 R' B U (10'/8, 10 algs)

That’s impressive. You do a “safe” 4BLD solve considerable faster than I do 3BLD when I am going for broke!

Whoa, that’s a great success rate!
Is this your first ao12 on 6BLD?
How many solves did you ‘accidentally’ get success before you started going slow?

Thank you! Absolutely this is my first ao12, by a long shot! My previous best streak was 5 in a row. Now I have 10.
I tried for a while to just "not care". I would say that 35:01.76 was the first one where I really started playing it safe. The 28:48.98 was actually a really easy scramble - I was being ultra-careful and took over 17 minutes to memorize, but executed in just 11 minutes. That one might have had a chance at being a PB if I hadn't been being careful.
