    Are there any t-shirt or sweatshirts for BLD or MBLD?

    What's a good setup for the cycle UF - RD - RF for TuRBo edges?

    That's very fast, but complicated. You're moving the buffer, replacing it with a flipped piece, and keeping track of 3 pieces.

    The alternative is just D2 L2 R

  5. I'm starting 3style for t centers

    do you still think Ul is the best buffer? I currently use Uf but I'm slow I wouldn't mind switching

    and what about x centers?

    I think Ul, Ub, and Uf are equally good, and Ubl for xcenters is probably best

    I think it's Gianfranco's sub-20

    but apparently Kaijun has a 22 avg12 so good chance of him having sub-20 mo3
     
  8. holy ****
    22 avg 12

    the speedsolving page isn't updated apparently
     
  9. is there a list of parity algs for 3BLD for all 462 2e2c cases? I don't care about the buffer

    probably not. or there is one and most of them are crap. I made a list for the 22 cases swapping ULB UBR and DF + other edge and even for some of those it was already hard to find good algs.
     
  11. oh:(

    I'm wondering whether UF/UFR parity algs are better than UB/UBL algs. They're only a U2 away though so probably not a huge difference. but still

    yeah, most likely not a huge difference. There will always be bad cases. I had to learn that even though some cases look easy (e.g. DF UL ULB UBR) you won't necessarily find great algs and for harder looking cases (DF DB) there might be some easy ones :)

    Okay so I've been having some trouble pushing my memo, and was wondering if there were any suggestions on how to improve this: my memo on 3bld is anywhere between 2:30-3:45 at this point, and execution seems to be anywhere from 2-3 minutes. my problem that i keep running into is that after i come up with a word for corners, i have to create an image and then insert it into a story or something, and it can take me some time to figure out how to fit it in. Is there a quicker way to do this, or do i just need to practice more? (i've been doing bld for only a couple months. i think since september)

    I need help regarding tracking centers on 4BLD.

    I spend (waste?) lots of time during the memo trying to remember if I had already a center or not.
    Example:
    set up with l' u' l U2 l' u l U2 l d' l' U2 l d l' U2
    This is a stupid example and I obviously know where I had shot in this case, but in a solve, I memo
    R(upper right) center, then U(bottom left), then after a while, I don't know if I had already memorized the R(UR) or if I should move onto R(DL).

    Any tips?
    Thanks!

    1) make sure you have a fixed order for memorising/solving the centres. For example, I always start on the upper-left centre of each side and then move clockwise. (e.g. on the L face, I would do Lub -> Luf -> Ldf -> Ldb)

    2) keep your finger on the last centre you memo'ed on each side. This only requires you to use six fingers to keep track of all the centres you've memorised.

    I do both of those things, but as my hands just can't hold the cube while keeping fingers on strange positions, sometimes I just remove all fingers from the centers because otherwise the cube would fall to the floor.

    What cyansandwich suggests is tapping on the centers instead, for the moment I'll try that.

    Thank you for your time

    I use my right thumb and index finger for F and R respectively, and my left thumb and index finger for L and B respectively. Then I just remember for U and D (using your feet can work too). My middle fingers also hold the cube up, on the wings/corners.

    I use index, ring and thumb of left hand for F, L and D respectively, and of right hand for U, B and R. It usually works OK.

    Is there a comm that solves twisted corners at DBL and DBR?
