    Roux-breaker? The YruRU method

    If we were to solve the two corners in the bottom left (disregarding CP), what would the probability of having CP already complete be? is it also 1/6 just like last layer?

    Cubing hardware should not be customizable

    Customization is definitely a good thing *when done right*. I think it's good that cubes are customizable as it allows people to tune their puzzle to their preference. however, the issue arises with monstrosities like the tengyun v2, which is over engineered as heck. At some point, all the...

    Cubing hardware should not be customizable

    I actually somewhat agree with your points about the customization. At some point, you just get far too overwhelmed with the options and you just end up using stock settings, or barely messing with the features.

    [Help Thread] Roux Discussion and Help

    90% of people do M2 with ring-middle, while 10% use pinkie-ring (I use pinkie-ring). I wouldn't say one style is better than the other. I use pinkie-ring just because I found it t naturally more comfortable for me. When you first start doing M2 double flicks, it will never be fluid because you...

    My Cubing Progresses (right now its 3BLD)

    That's not what I meant. COLL is useful when the opportunity comes up, but that's not what Im concerned about. I meant that COLL should be learnt in this situation for the sake of getting familiar with the concept of corner permutation, which is very important at the higher levels for predicting...
