2. ### The 3x3x3 Example Solve Thread

Lots of ZZ solves ZZ with EOArrow, 44 STM y F' L B U B // EOArrow R2 D L U L' // 1st pair U2 R U R' D' // 2nd pair R U' R' U R U R' U2 R' U' R U2 R' // Right block U2 R' U' R U' R' U' L' U2 R U' R' U2 R L U2 // ZBLL (AS cancelled into Ja) ZZ with EOArrow, 44 STM y2 z U B' L2 F D L D // EOArrow...

4. ### The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

The first variant seems really similar to the Skis method. Also the second one looks a bit worse than the first since the only advantage is that you can place all the E-layer edges <RUu>-gen, but solving the corners is a lot more moves. Mephiles-CT looks really interesting, I like how the...

9. ### The 3x3x3 Example Solve Thread

I really like new methods and ideas, that's why I know yours. It's just a really nice and also low movecount method that doesn't require too much blockbuilding skills and has an easy first step, so on some solves it's even possible to look ahead to CLL. If I weren't already using ZZ, this would...
10. ### The ZZ "Example Solve" Game!

Multiple solutions: (was surprisingly fast to do all of them) ZZ-VH (53 STM) B2 L' D U F' D' // EOLine L U' R U2 R' L U' R' U2 R' L2 U2 R' // Right block U' L2 U L' U L' U2 L U' L' U L U' L' // Left block R U2 R2 U' R2 U' R2 U2 // COLL R2 U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2 U // EPLL ZZ-VH but with "two...
11. ### [New] My Journey in Switching 3x3 Methods

Since you stated that you might learn some OLLCPs, I'd also advise you to have a look on a method called "Zipper". It's basically CFCE with an extra edge. You solve like usually until last slot and then insert one corner (you can usually insert the corner while solving another pair beforehand)...
