    My General Cubing Progress

    Every single thing you said is 100% correct. That said, let's consider why every single thing you said is useless for most people. COLL is 40 algs. And of those 40 algs, basically everyone agrees the S/AS cases are a waste of time, which takes us down to 28 algs. I can learn that in an...

    Accomplishment Thread

    I remember that feeling! Cherish it because the time drops necessarily get smaller as you get faster : ) Dude shape mods are so rewarding when you finally work them out, good stuff. It gives you that feeling of accomplishment at solving a real puzzle, that you sort of lose in the traditional...

    My Cubing Journey

    I mean typically each alg is going to be another look. If you're solving CP using that method, it's an extra look per U' R' U making that like an 8-look LL.

    Full ZB - 7.60 Official Average

    Really impressive. And excuse my ignorance, but how does ZBLS work? Is it a set of algs or more of an F2L approach a la "it becomes algorithmic with experience"? How do you think that system now compares to your standard CFOP times?

    Year's Records (YWR/YCR) / Fastest of the year 2019 That's a start, if there was an option for that "only 2019" selection in the records page that would probably be what you are looking for.
