    I'm averaging 23 seconds with the roux method, any tips on how to get faster?

    I would recommend this series by Kian, they are pretty good. https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/threads/why-youre-not-sub-x-with-roux.61813/

    Roux is just clickbait?

    As a Roux solver I am more interested in watching roux speedsolves so it really helps that people label their videos with the method they're using. Also, some cubers like Tao Yu or @shadowslice e have videos using different methods so it's nice to know what method they're using in a particular...

    Yeah, you got it right, CMLL is the step where you orient and permit the corners, there are 42 different cases. you can solve them in 2 looks using one alg to orient (7 cases) and then one to permute (2 cases) or in one look with one alg. There are algs for SB (you can find them here) most of...

    No, the 20 moves are just for second block, but if you can solve the blocks in less moves it would be great. The way I did 2 look cmll was: 7 OLLs for corner orientation (the ones that are also used in 2-look OLL) and 2 PLLs J perm and Y perm for corner permutation.

    Yeah, you should aim for efficiency (as a beginner 15 moves for FB is ok, 20 for SB ) right now, speed will come later. For color neutrality it is recommended to be x2 y neutral (using 2 colors for top/bottom, and any by the sides i.e. I use green/blue on top/bottom and white/yellow, red/orange...

    For blockbuilding I recommend watching example solves on youtube. I also recommend visiting Lars Petrus website, It will help with the basics of block building. Teoidus videos can help you too
