  • In the last few days, I have been doing a minimum of 50 solves every day, and managed to get two or three sub 1m solves every day. My average TPS for solves is finally 1 or over. However, that is affecting my trigger thumb. I now have to take it very easy for a week to recover from the pain and swelling. Maybe do only slow solving? 🧙‍♂️
    After 5 months, I finally had a few solves sub 1min solves, and my TPS for complete solves is occasionally over 1. The improvement is mainly due to reduced recognition time, and not so much finger turning speed. (Max TPS of 1.57 was recorded during PLL in this solve.)

    Just got 51.79 sec solve, with a bit of luck, as can be seen here: :D

    Lucky solve
    Roux block building is interesting and enjoyable to do, but so hard (for me) to do fast. This is from Cubeast, for the solves today and yesterday. I'm still trying to find out whether it's due to slow TPS or recognition/response. Have to find out how Cubeast measures them and how to interpret these stats. Seems to me that TPS is the total time (including pauses and recognition).

    I found Recognition time is separate from Execution Time. (I build both blocks at the same time, depending on which pairs I find easiest at the time. That's why the time for the second block is almost always less than for the first, since some of the second block is already built when the first block is done.) The total block building time should be accurate.

    I believe the recognition time measures how long you pause between steps and not within the step itself. There's no pause for first block because it's the first step, then you pause before starting second block. Any pauses that happen during second block just get added to the execution time. TPS includes pauses and is simply calculated by (moves) divided by (total solve time, seconds), hence, "turns per second".

    Thank you very much for the clarification.
    nice pfp. Did you make it?
    Starting today, we have another lockdown. So, I am thinking of learning CMLL, now that I am quite comfortable with block building using the Beginner Roux method.
    Good luck with the switch to Roux!
