    How many attempts did it take to get your first 3BLD success?

    If you want to have a success as fast as possible, sure it is. If you care about improving fast, just rush memo every time and DNF a lot.

    How many attempts did it take to get your first 3BLD success?

    My first attempt was a success. Everyone said it's not going to happen, so I memorized for 30min or so, and had my success with ~45 min total. From what I've seen, usually people get their first success way later (like between attempts 10 and 50 maybe), but also way faster (between 7min and...

    What is the easiest WCA event to get world class at?

    Pretty sure that FMC is the objective and only answer? You can get to a decent level (means being able to win any local competition, and with some luck also major comps) by just reading the tutorial and do a few solves. This takes nowhere near as much time as any speedsolving event. Of course in...

    How to solve the Rubik's cube under 15 seconds

    Yeah this advice seems to be a how to sub10 tutorial (without saying what to do, but it outlines the important points so there's that).

    Or you could just use the optimal alg: R2' U2' F R2 F' U2' R' U R'. Faster than any of the solutions so far, and you can force an EO skip as easily.

    What makes an event good and which one is the best

    Yeah lol, learning BLD (and also getting a first success) was significantly faster for me than learning 3x3. Also I feel like the basic concept of BLD is supposed to be more easily understood than sighted 3x3, as it's really just the braindead "we solve one piece at a time, nothing else moves".

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    Umm, co how it is done for ssc is pretty great, and as far as I can see you didn't come up with a solution to the steps after belt + co (which is the main disadvantage of ssc).

    How the 3.47 WR changes cubing

    While 3x3 single is a lot about luck, it still needs a lot of skill to be executed nicely. On top of that this WR isn't "just sub4", it's A LOT faster and there are not many people who have a time like that at home. Like, really not many.

    New Hardware Won't Get You Faster

    It has happened multiple times to me that I changed from a modern cube to another modern cube and it instantly made me faster. I think you have a good intention in what you write, but hardware can definitely make a notable difference.

    New Hardware Won't Get You Faster
