Hi cubers!

I'm creating this thread to discuss Multiblind. Post your records, successes, failures or just anything about your multibld experience. Me and a bunch of my friends have had some great experiences, as well as some frustrating ones, so i'm sure that others had them themselves. Also talk about your official solves

I have a 5/5 in 39:xx.xx However I also have a 5/5 when I had lost one of the edge pieces from one of my cubes, I had to execute the first cube, then remove it from that one (while still blind) and then put it into the other cube to solve it. Was really proud of that ^_^ Also, I'm going for 5 cubes at my compotition this weekend - wish me luck! :*

3 MBLD attempts in 3 days leading up to comp this weekend. 4/5 in 43mins, executed the wrong target at the very end. 5/7 in 1:03 with ONE twisted corner and forgot to undo a set up move which prompted me to stick at 6 for the comp. Yesterday 4/6 in 47mins with 2 flipped edges and a corner cycle out.
Hopeful a 6/6 when I get home will help calm the nerves.

Even though I did this a few days ago:

After 20 attempts, 3 cubes only took 4 attempts, 4/4 19:26.74[12:40.03]. Memo time was great, 3:10 per cube, solve time could be better.

Something I noticed with my BLD times:
1st 3BLD success: ~14:00
1st 2/2 success: ~16:00
1st 3/3 success: ~17:00
1st 4/4 success: ~19:00

My time isn't going up by much, the only thing that can be better is solve time. If we continue this patter at adding 3 minutes per cube (which is slightly more than what is happening) I can get up to 17 cubes (13+4), of course we want to have some time to spare in the attempts so I don't go over 1 hour.

My very first 5 cube attempt was 3/5 26:43.78[16:39.16], I'm happy. Although I forget my memo and I have to try and remember it.

Good idea to make this thread.

Dude, I used to be like you - I just realised; I should just take my time. As if by magic, bam ~95% accuracy rate. [emoji43]

I think you're getting the wrong idea. The more cubes you solve blindfolded your time will increase with rising speed until you get to your max for sub 60 mins (which you didnt do quite yet), then you start reducing your memo time and rely on accuracy and begin solving faster

Oh, and thanks)

4/5 29:41.91[17:37.82]. Memo time was good. Solve time sucks. I forgot one of the cube's corners and I spent a bit trying to remember it. Other then that, everything was correct.

I feel that 23 minutes would be a good goal. This is only the 3rd attempt so maybe I'll get there soon!
