ZZ-TOP is a new speedsolving method that combines all the worst aspects of ZZ and Fridrich to produce a brand-new mashup method.

The steps are as follows:
  • 1. ZZ Orientation: Orient all 8 edges that do not belong to the top layer. The 4 top layer edges can conveniently be used as wildcards
  • 2. Three Slices. Solve each of the three slices of the first two layers using the oriented edges, without rotations: middle, left, and right.
  • 3. OLL - If you look ahead during orientation or the solve, you can even predict the number of flipped edges, since those stay fixed during the Three Slices step.
  • 4. PLL

Here is an example using the scramble D2 F2 U F B2 L D2 U' B' L' U2 D' L2 R F2 L2 B2 D L F2 U2 R' B2 R F':

y'L'U'R //Orientation
y'RDF2 //First Slice
UR'U2'LU2'LU2'R'URU'LUL' //Second Slice
UR2URUR2'U'RUR'U2RUR'U'R //Third Slice
R'U'FURU'R'F'R //OLL
R2'URUR'U'R'U'R'UR'U //PLL

You want to make a method with the worst aspects?

Oprah this is obviously meant to be something fun to do, not some sort of serious speedsolving method. It's just like that competition where you had to throw the cube then memo and bld it or whatever that was. Just for kicks.

Isn't this regular ZZ?

Orient
F2L
OLL
PLL?

Am confused. Would this happen to be a joke?
Obviously. The nice thing about ZZ is that you orient ALL the edges at the start, allowing you to always use ZBLL or COLL.

Jesus guys... He even said he's combining the worst aspects of both methods.
I wasn't expecting jokes nowadays, considering there haven't been any "omg new method" threads. And I mean, this is Lucas. My first response was to take this seriously for a second >.>.

  • 4. EOLL
  • 5. CPLL
  • 6. EPLL
Ex:

L2D'B
LRUx2
L'R'U2L'U'L'R'URL'UL
RU'RURURUR'URU'R'UR
U'F(RUR'U')(RUR'U')F'
M'UM'UM'UM'U2M'UM'UM'UM'UM'UM'UM'UM'U2M'UM'UM'UM'U2
RUR'F'RUR'U'R'FR2U'R'
U'F2U'M'U2MU'F2U


my revision of the method ^^
optimized for suck

Okay, that's just gratuitously silly. Half the length is enough. ;)

[*]3. OCLL - If you look ahead during orientation or the solve, you can even predict the number of flipped edges, since those stay fixed during the Three Slices step.
[*]4. EOLL
[*]5. CPLL
[*]6. EPLL

That's definitely not the worst. The worst, I think, would be CPLL, EPLL, ECLL, OCLL, but it's an interesting question.
