Blindfold Failures Thread

Discussion in 'Blindsolving Discussion' started by Mike Hughey, Jul 1, 2008.

  1. I would've finished it with [R: Uw M Uw2' M Uw] [M, D L2 D'] instead of doing just [R: U' M' U2' M U'] and DNFing

    Also no I don't have an alg for those flipped, nope. I would just do x2 and standard alg (at the end), or flipping that + the buffer at the beginning, or as I almost always do, just breaking cycle at the flipped edge which is the fastest way (if I spot it XD)

    I agree it wouldn't have been sub20, but perhaps a 21 or a 22 which is still not too bad for me
     
  2. 1. 18.87[6.52] on 8.5 algs (it was 8 algs) D' L2 U' R2 F2 U' L2 U' B2 D2 B2 F U R2 D2 R2 F D' R' B2 F2 Rw2 Uw'

    y
    U' x: U R2 U', M' //woops Lw' next time
    E, R' F R
    x: U L' U', M' //I perform the previous alg from a slight x rotation, so it pretty much "cancelled" a bit with this x setup done in this comm
    U' M' U' M U' M' U' M

    R' D2: D', R' U R
    R2': R D' R', U
    x U' L U L' no no wait L U' L' U x' //not really an algorithm! this is the .5
    Rw U' Rw', B2
    U leftsune rightsune U' arghhh

    ~84 moves in 12.34 secs = 6.8 TPS

    -------------------

    triple post, wut, this:

    your session is sub24 and over 50%, at about 25 solves... but then you get 10 dnfs in a row with only one success, of 26.x seconds... then you keep failing all your 22s by 1 wrong move and now your session says 17/38 24.15

    To flip DF and DB I just use the standard alg for opp but with M' and D Moves

    I need a slight regrip for this one to work. Do you think that's better than doing M2 then the regular alg? That allows for a minor cancelation, so not too bad IMO.

    Shameful DNF. Not about the result itself, but more like about my duuuuuuumb execution.

    Nerves might have played a minor role, but in no way I'll use them as an excuse. My overall execution is bad and I should feel bad.

    So, yeah. I'm already back at working on my corner comms, and trying to improve my TPS during edges in the meantime.

    Lol, I went to a comp last weekend and had 2 DNFs and then a 1:02 with a 20 second pause lol. My pb in comp is only 57. I practiced so long and hard I should have gotten at least a sub-40.
    I've been thinking about how in the world I did soooooo badly. I think it was just nerves and the inability to concentrate ;p :(
    I decided that I'm going to start to walking up to people and just doing a bld solve since I usually get more butterflies doing that then in comp lol.
