My responses to PCMS as a sub 25 columns first solver:

M slice DNFs: there is a reason why my last step is PLL over something akin to LSE (Though I'm learning for fun).

Awkward fingertricks: I agree on this. Columns compromises efficiency with manageability often, making it a bit harder than with something like CFOP per se

L8E: Look at my reason for M slice DNFs

Big cubes. L5EOP is helpful in 3x3 stage.

The big one for me is look ahead. Cubies have more places to be, so they are harder to track.

I started doing events a couple of videos ago: here's video 3 of it:
[\spoiler]
Number 2 is so true.
I've had two corner twists officially: 1 was my first solve ever, 1:40 or something, on a thunderclap.
Second was a 47 on a GAN Air, and it cost me winning the competition, a mid 30 single, and a top 100 solve.

Still, one of my favorite events.


Glad to see videos are back up!
