1. ### U2 method, a way to go to 3-Style

U2 was made by Orozco since 11 years ago, but in this moment there were inneficient algorithm. The idea behind U2 is to use it as a "Base method", with UF/UFR as the buffers, the mechanism is the same than M2 and R2,. Corners (Speffz) A: U2 B: [l' R' : [D2, R U R']] + U2 C: Buffer D: [R' D R...
2. ### 100/100 2x2 Multiblind Progress Thread

I want to have a multi blind world record, and 2x2 blindfolded is relatively easy. Also, the best result I saw anywhere is 6/6. I´m taking an incredibly ambitious journey to get 100/100 2x2 multi blind success. I´ll update everyone when I get a new best or something important happens. So far, I...
3. ### Intuitive 3-Style as a Beginner Blind Method

I recently learned 3-style as my first blind method. I did it completely intuitively, without memorizing any algorithms. This is an explanation of what I did, and a collection of the resources that I used. I hope that it will be helpful to others who want to learn 3-style intuitively for fun...
4. ### U2 Method v2

I stumbled across an old thread talking about U2, an improvement to R2, which you all know is generally regarded as bad. The idea is similar, but you setup to UFR and use U2 to swap with UBL buffer instead. The problems with the older thread: Parity sucked Special cases sucked So I have...
5. ### (New) What cubes should be added to the WCA events list?

Since I forgot to add so many things, I decided to make a new one.
6. ### My audio memo technique for edges

Hello, I wanted to present to you the method I'm using for edges memorization. It is an audio-based method that has the advantage of producing a very condensed audio sequence, and not needing to translate the letters into real words or images. You basically memorize just one long word composed...
7. ### How to translate cubing algs to music (team blind chord dictation system).

Hi everyone, This saturday Berta and I were thinking about cubing challenges we could try and do, and I just saw her piano sitting there and thought: wait a minute... could we maybe just dictate a whole team blind solution using only the piano? And so after giving it some thought, the encoding...

12. ### [Unofficial] 10.69 SpeedBLD FAIL (Petrus method)

I miscounted the number of d moves and y rotations, so I got the PLL AUF wrong because I'm retarded. :tu I thought I'd post it here so you all can laugh at my misfortune. :mad:
13. ### Pyraminx Blindfolded?

Hey! I personally love pyraminx, and since it's such a simple puzzle, I thought it'd be cool to learn to solve it blindfolded! However, because not too many people do pyraminx, and fewer blindsolve it, my searches have come up mainly empty. I solved it once BLD, but it was extremely lucky. I...

15. ### Help with 5x5x5 Blind parity?

Hello! I would need some help with 5x5x5 blind. I now tried a few times and it comes down to the same problem, the end. Memorisation works fine and execution also until the end... I can't find help in any other post maybe because I solve in a bit of a funny order, but it works in my head...
16. ### Confused with M2+OP parity

I am solving 3BLD using M2 for edges and OP for corners. I solve corners first. When parity occurs I try to switch UBL with UBR and then after solved edges I do: M2 y L2 <T-perm> L2. I see a lot of my DNF are: all cube solved except UBL and UBR which are in place, but not oriented. I try to...
