    After trying both methods, I can safely say that recognizing color patterns is better (for me) than recognizing edge cycles. For the H-Case #1 on algdb.net, I simply recognize the two color lines that are formed on F and B and then I know which case it is. I actually have another similar...

    If you don't mind using the left side, I can really recommend the mirror alg of its mirror case: [l' U' L U l F'] [L2 U L U L' U2 L U F] The first part is basically the mirror of the wide turn standard T-oll, and the second is almost the mirror of the beginning of the FRU Y-perm alg. y2 R2 F...

    That is awesome OLLiver! Can't wait to see what you accomplish. So, what are you going to do about your name? You're not going to rename to ZBiver or something, are you?

    Agreed. If committing to learning ZBLL, S and AS should be learnt at the very end (if at all). I have barely touched S and AS, all I know is basically the standard, the inverse of standard and Niklas, meaning I have no idea how hard/good they are, so take my opinion with a grain of salt :) Off...

    Noobiest thing you've done?

    U' U2 U' auf. Oh god no! I still do this to some degree when misinterpreting the AUF after PLL/ZBLL. Before this problem arose the noobiest thing I've ever done was thinking it was standard to learn all PLL's (and most OLL's) before starting to speed solve.

    I frequently use slice turns, mostly M and E turns, to simplify awkward EO cases. Strangely I don't use any S slices though.. Don't know why. I don't think that doing the line before the EO is a good way to start learning EO-line, as at some point you will want to switch to full EO line, where...

    New MoYu Puzzles?

    Been waiting for the Megaminx for forever! I'm thinking about the big cube as well.

    I'm in the process of learning as well. Currently I'm finishing up all the U cases, and have recently started with H. Unfortunately I don't have that much time to learn, so it's going quite slowly.

    Interested in ZBLL? ZB masterclass at Nats 2015

    Someone please film this for us who can not attend. I would very much like to watch it. Interesting stuff!

    Very well done. The Gans 356 seems to work out really well so far!

    Hi! When I switched to ZZ I did it like this (I moved onto the next step when I felt comfortable with the current one): 1. Started out by planning simpler cases of EO, ignoring the line. Checking after each time that it was done correctly. 2. I practiced the same thing, but blind, tracking the...

    At no point is the validity of a scramble based upon which method the solver uses. A bad scramble for CFOP may be a good one for Roux, and a bad scramble for ZZ may be an easy one for CFOP.

    Speedsolving algorithm wiki is back up again actually :) https://www.speedsolving.com/wiki/index.php/Special:MediawikiAlgDB?mode=view&view=default&puzzle=3&group=ZBLL-H It was gone for the better part of a year I think, and right before algdb.net was initiated.

    Such a feat! I can't see this being beaten for a long time. Congratulations Feliks (even if it doesn't get approved). I don't think its fair to blame the scrambler to be honest. Mistakes happen, and it should be up to the WCA to adjust their regulations so individual scrambler-mistakes do...
