    One-Answer 3x3x3 Question Thread

    The reason it's useful is that whenever you happen to have an OLL with all of your edges oriented, you can make it so that you only have an EPLL (or a skip). This will come up at least 1/8 of the time, or more if you use tricks like easy VHLS cases to give you oriented edges. Most people think...

    I feel bad for Kian?

    Actually, if you take all of the times in the top 100 averages and find the mean time for each method, Roux is lower. The problem is, the sample size is low enough that I don't think it's a very good comparison. There's also a significant chance that I messed up. I don't have the numbers...

    I feel bad for Kian?

    Does anyone know of any Roux users in the top 100 Ao5s other than Sean Patrick Villanueva, Kian Mansour, Alexander Lau, and Kaijun Lin?

    I feel bad for Kian?

    My point being that I think that Roux just needs to "catch up" with CFOP. After all, CFOP has been around for 38 years and Roux has only existed for 16. I think that Roux is better off than CFOP in that respect, actually. When's the last time you heard of that kind of innovation with CFOP? I...

    CFOP in 2016 (by WR Ao5) is slower than Roux today.

    "Kibiminx" is a term invented by @DGCubes, isn't it? It's crazy to think that we're part of a community in which a large-scale global company is influenced by a moderately successful teenage YouTuber.

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    The problem I see with this is that it's literally just forcing XCross. If there is a nice case for this, an advanced CFOP solver will use it, but if there's not, they won't. I imagine that in the cases that it's not nice, regular CFOP would be faster, and an advanced CFOP solver will solve it...

    [Help Thread] ZZ and ZB Discussion

    I don't know if you can say that EOCross is generally accepted as the best. I tried it out for a hundred solves (I use Roux and average ~20 seconds; I've been getting ~25 with ZZ) and I'm not sure I prefer it over EOLine. It would probably help if my inspection skills were better, but I find...

    Coming back to the cube... after 37 years

    Welcome back! The standard beginner's method nowadays is just layer-by-layer. It might be what you learned back in the day. I think this tutorial is a good one. After you're comfortable with that, you can probably transition to CFOP, a more advanced method, pretty easily. Then, if you want to, I...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    That's rather rude. He just gave you a whole bunch of feedback on your method, and you dismissed it as a bunch of self promotion (Which he deserves, by the way. The amount of work he's put into that method is staggering.)

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    LMCF's second step E2L has a lot of cases similar to those of the second step of the Skis method. Those would probably help.

    [Help Thread] Roux Discussion and Help

    HTM? I'm guessing you mean STM. Are you using EOLR or UFUB or anything like that? At any rate, 5 solves is not really a big enough sample size to really judge anything much. There's too much possibility of chance screwing with the average.

    ¡Bienvenido! No creo que haya muchos hispanohablantes en este foro. Yo solo hablo un poco, y estoy aprendiendo en la escuela.
