    Random thoughts on improving/evolving Roux for 3x3 2H that may or may not suck

    There is a resource for that somewhere in the roux method speed solvers facebook group. I think solving DR+corner might be good as well. Since solving that pair (R U' M' U R' -like solutions), cmll does not change.

    that would be great since rouxers usually solve DR first for second block. Is there a place with a whole bunch of multi slot tricks compiled? or is it really just looking at lots of cfop solves?

    so instead of [last pair + ollcp] we do [WV+ollcp(less cases)]. It doesn't seem good unless, for some reason, corners oriented ollcp just happens to be way better than the rest of the set. Doing WV is just adding extra recognition and extra moves compared to the original pinkie pie.

    I never really liked the idea of pinkie pie. eolr is like 8 moves? (I don't really know). the ul/ur set up for pinkie along with harder recognition and worse corners alg makes it seem like a small improvement at best (not worth the 300 algs). I definitely almost never break the second block...

    Best beginner's method?

    if you're doing op/op sighted, you don't have to worry about parity. if all your edges are solved there is no parity for the corners. and if you solve edges first, you don't have to worry about the corners when doing setups for you t-perm. it makes the method seems pretty easy to learn. to long...

    Method Pros and Cons: CFOP vs Roux vs ZZ

    I think if eodfdb is one look, then it will be slow because you would need a considerable pause to recognize it. it would need to be something like lse which is split into 3 steps (4a, 4b, 4c). i wonder if fb -> sb -> eodfdb -> zbll would be a better method. since eodfdb would be [M,U] here...

    speedcubes-expensive or cheap/ roux

    sorry, i'm not from Australia, so I don't know what is best. Most cubers get their cubes online.

    speedcubes-expensive or cheap/ roux

    how much is cheap or expensive for you? most of the top flagship cubes are around 25 USD. there are some good budget cubes that are 10 USD or less. At the beginner level, you won't notice much of a difference in your times when using a budget cube or a flagship cube. As you get to sub 30 or sub...

    EGA (Estimated Global Average) - A new metric for assessing competitors' strength

    something like this?: SUM[ ( 0.1 )^( t_i ) * T_i ] / SUM[ ( 0.1 )^( t_i ) ] , T_i = the time for the solve t_i = the number of years since the solve has been done SUM['expression'] = the sum of 'expression' for every solve that is in the middle 60%.

    [Help Thread] Roux Discussion and Help

    Usually the definition of oriented for edges is if you can solve it using only R, U, L and D moves. On average, solving pairs with oriented edges are only a little bit faster than the unoriented case. It takes a lot of skill to really take advantage of these differences. At the beginner level...

    I think 2020 they are going to have a North America championships somewhere in Canada. US nationals might not happen.

    The ZZVolution.

    I would think if you're doing eocross and you are a top zz user, blindspots wouldn't be a problem. Edge oriented seems powerful to deduce pieces. And if it's still a problem, you can train to look for back slot pairs while doing eocross.

    The ZZVolution.

    [R,U,L] shouldn't be a bad moveset. especially with zzcross so there are no R2 or L2s. it just doesn't seem clear to me that zz is inferior to roux or cfop.
