    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



    Thanks to pixelhateshisrouter for the accidental suggestion. :)

    You want to make a method with the worst aspects?

    It's not a question of whether I want to. I did. ;)

    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.

    OrtegaZB and TICT are way funnier.

    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 >.>.

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

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