  • Scramble: L F' U2 R' U' L D' B R2 B2 L U2 R' B2 L' D2 F2 B2 R' F

    Easy cross, F2L was super smooth, and then OLL. I don't know which dot case solves OLL completely with F sexy F' f sexy f', so I was surprised when after the first part of the alg it was a setup I knew would be solved with f sexy f'. So I did that, was ready for PLL, and then got a PLL skip. Time was 14.153, movecount of 48 and 1 rotation during F2L.

    For the first pair, I would’ve done R U’ R’ U’ R U2 R’
    Second, I would’ve done U L2 U2 L U L’ U L2 (although no 3rd pair skip)
    4th I would have done d L U2 L U’ L U L’ U2 L’
    This is just for the cases individually, obviously the way you did things ended up with a nice OLL and PLL skip. And you may not like those algs.

    Which makes me wonder, even though my algs are pretty move efficient, are they actually goos for speedsolving???

    I mean, I always use them. I dunno if they're the best, but I always use them(this is a recon of my actual solve). There might have been a better way to do F2L, but that was just a recon of my speedsolve
    What is your average at the moment? Last record was a week back, and nothing in the Accomplishments.

    With 1-look PLL, about 21.5 seconds. If I always use 2-look, around 18-19. I haven't done much 3x3 for a while(since I was sub-20) except for now, I've been doing a lot more in the past day or two. It's funny being happy with sub-20s again *non-existent laughing emoji*
    New 3x3 PB, 12.22 seconds! Solve was a StackMat, should've been an 11, I went really slowly for the last two pairs. It could've possibly been a 10 with amazing speed, but definitely at least an 11 without messing up those pairs. Still a PB though, so I'm not complaining ;)

    Yeah, but the entire solve was pretty easy, I planned cross+1st pair in inspection, the second pair was easy, and the last two I did really slowly but were so easy it didn't matter lol. OLL was done good, and I was pretty sure I was gonna get an EPLL, so I was prepared for MU.

    do you have the scramble?

    Yes, it's in the recon: U2 B2 L2 U L2 D R2 U B2 L2 F2 D2 R' F D L2 U F' L2 R' B

    Also if you do the solve the same as I did and then do 1-look OLL, then you end up with an Aa perm, which is almost as fast as a U
    I was doing some Pyraminx Duo solves(cause why not), and I was like "I'm getting low times, how much faster have people gotten", then I checked the WB/UWR page on SS Wiki. It turns out I have Mo3 Ao5 and Ao12 WBs for Pyraminx Duo. I'm also probably decently close to single(.17 - twice in a row!), but it's not tracked :)
    I just got a 4x4 center cap pop in the middle of my solve, and instead of putting it back I did all my edge pairing and 3x3 with a missing center cap because mine are hard to put in. As it turns out, it was technically fully solved XD

    • 5b5b) If one part with one colored face is affected, the puzzle is considered solved.

    One of the green center caps on my yusu always pops out.

    Mine was also a green one lol
    Is it your goal to reach the most messages on the forums?

    No I just procrastinate in the middle of big averages and tell myself "It's ok because this is still cubing related" and basically end up posting 10+ times a day :p
    Currently Sub-20 with 4lll
    Hiya! Saw that you were commenting on my profile, sorry I couldn’t reply to them earlier cuz I stopped cubing for quite a while...
    Congrats on reaching 1.1k messages so fast! Also good luck to 2k!

    Thanks! All that basically means is that I have way too much time on his hands, I'll probably be to 2k in a month or two lol
    You’ve overtaken me in messages now, is that because the mods deleted your old posts‘ nametags and put in your new one? You can still see the old name in quotes on your old posts though.

    hmm it seems the petition has gathered a following. Monseuir "Quber" what is your statement on all this?

    Well, if you want to see it renamed, along with other things, a petition is going on right now in the sub 8 thread... We’re on 13/20 reactions.

    Cool! It's not my method really, just PCMS with a step done slightly differently.

    What I like doing is solving 4 random edges then setting up the 4 remaining ones on the top for an edge PLL. Maybe you could do this with by setting up a roux L4E case ? I must test this out.
    ProStar
    ProStar
    Yeah, whenever I do a solve with it I'll usually do Pairs, CMSLL, EO, then what I call B4E(bottom 4 edges, it permutes the bottom 4 edges), then EPLL.

    Knocked out one more 3BLD attempt, I got a 9:34.09 with 7:11.45 memo

    Edges - J L T U X S E R V H - "JL(my friend's nickname) wore a TUX while driving SouthEast in an RV Haha"
    Corners - V O S M L D B K - "a VOle that mained a gan air SM took an LeD lamp to Burger King"

    My memo method for 2BLD sucks but it's effective: remember each of the letters with no letter pairs or review. Learn them on one pass then go.

    I got a 34.64 Mo3 and 35.18 Ao5. Also got PB 31.44 yesterday
    My never-ending journey of doing BLD but not learning 3BLD has ended. I got a success, 10:44.61 :)

    Edge Memo: H T J S U V X L I C - "it was so HoT at James State University that they had to give VaXines(lul) for LICe"
    Corner Memo: H W I K L J B L - "HoW did Ike(Dwight Eisenhower) and Lyndon Johnson [hope I remember BL]
    New profile pic, what do you think?
    I just realized it's possible to get a 7x7 scramble that takes 2 moves to solve :O

    • 4b3e) 5x5x5 Cube, 6x6x6 Cube, 7x7x7 Cube, and Megaminx: sufficiently many random moves (instead of random state), at least 2 moves to solve.
