I currently use CFOP with intuitive F2L and full PLL. My current goal is to average sub-25. I currently average 35.28 seconds and my PB is 23.83. I created a reconstruction of it here. I will be doing solves daily and positing the times & scrambles here
I’m about two weeks into my new speedcubing adventure, decided to buy a Gan i3 for help. I can consistently get yellow cross in about 1’45” (yes I know, not fat, but still learning). I know where I’m losing time and will work on those details, but I’m struggling with time from yellow cross to...
Recently I have been practicing virtual cube (ya the 3x3 virtual cube on cs timer)
I am averaging around 20-22 (wow 2022) seconds. My PB is 9.71 and PB Ao5 is 17.88. I use CFOP for Virtual cube btw.
Anyone have any tips to improve? thanks.
Hello everyone who sees this thread. The name's Guy, AceTheGuy. I'm Nigerian and I've been cubing on and off for around 4 years since 2018. I did the basics, learnt beginners method and got good with it. I should have made this thread a lot sooner but I ignored it.
Currently, my main method is...
Ok, technically I am NOT a speedcuber, my average is about 40secs. I use the beginner's method. I tried the CFOP method and it turns out I'm not good at it. But... to be honest I really improved a lot, from 2 min to under 1 min. AND I USE THE SAME METHOD. If you practice hard, you can achieve it...

After two and a half years of cubing, upgrading from beginners method. I'm gonna create this thread to track my progression and memorize tactics n stuff.
Ill try to make an update schedule, but I'm planning and once a week or every 5 days.
WELP, WISH ME LUCK...
I currently Average around 23 seconds with CFOP, and I am learning Roux now. I am also planning on learning ZZ, Petrus, and Metha so far.
I will post every Saturday (If I can because I have to do a lot of stuff) with my progress and maybe a little way down the line a new goal or 2.
I'm switching to CFOP from Roux. I average about 9.7-10.3 with Roux, and I average about 12.7 with CFOP. My CFOP pbs will be below as I progress, and I may add some goals later:
Ao5: 10.xx (It's a mid 10 but I've gotten a lot of them, so I'll update this when I get a low 10)
So I am going to NZ SouthIsland Nationals 2021 soon.
Any expectations I should have or important regulations I should know?
How should I practice at home?
Y'all are experienced cubers, so advice would be welcomed.
Beginner here currently learning 2-look OLL and 2-look PLL. I just discovered that even the 2-look OLL algorithms differ depending on the source. How do I know which one is the "best"? I'm sure people will say some of the variance is based on finger style preferences or it depends on the flow of...
How many people option-select during 3x3 solves and does it make it any faster/easier to solve from there on? And is it worth learning multiple methods to the point that you’re comfortable using them with less than 8 seconds of inspection?
The methods that I think are worth using are:
This isn't a tutorial; it's more of a summary of how I solve the Rubik's Cube. The video is mainly aimed at non-cubers who want to learn how people solve the Rubik's Cube, so make sure to share this with someone who might learn something from it!
I'm averaging a little under 13.5 right now (1.5-7-2-2 breakdown on a usual good solve) but just 3k or so solves ago late last year i got my first sub15 ao100 (current record is 13.33) and i've been improving pretty quickly since then. i know my breakdown should be more like 1.2-5-1.6-2.2 to be...
Hello. I'm a Rubik's cube fan and a hobbyist programmer. I've been working in a Windows application to search a solve for a given scramble using the CFOP method.
To use it download this zip file, unpack it and double click over CFOP.exe. A 64-bit version of windows 7 or higher is required. You...
