Hello, I am Valentin. I am from Switzerland and I've been cubing since around 2 years, but I just recently started speedsolving. For the first few days, I watched some CFOP tutorials, but i didn't like the heavily algorithm based method, so I did some solves with Roux (with a tutorial) an I...
Hi everyone, I'm really new to cubing, but I'm a fast learner. After a few weeks working on Roux I made a time of 2:58 today, on my non-magnetic cube, which for me seems great, but I know it's incredibly slow by speed cubing standards. I have hopes to improve a lot from this point. I really...
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.
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:
So, the older threads made by Kian Mansour and @Aerma kinda died out and Roux FMC seems fun. So, this will be like a race thread where I'll post 5 scrambles instead of 12( because no one has 12 hours of free time obviously) weekly and you have to use Roux only to find the shortest solution and...
For a while now I have been working on a guide to choosing a speedsolving method for the Speedcubing.org website because I‘m very interested in methods and the only one in existence currently is the one on this forums which is very outdated. Today I have finally finished an initial version with...
I average 20-23, sometimes 19 with 3lll and intuitive f2l and 3 slotted edge jperm algorithms. I feel like switching to roux, because of the less algorithms. i feel like 300 or something just for sub 7 is too much, and the 50 with roux is fine. plus it seems respectable. Should I switch?
Hey there, made this one myself. Feedback and tips are appreciated. Be gentle :)
I tried to format it so that it fits on one page for printing purposes. It's very bare bones since i'm still not experienced. If you have any contributions, let me know!
good day to everyone
my name is macncheese, and i am a cubing enthusiast from dubai, uae
i was previously on this forums for a very short period of time couple of years ago. during my time i was pretty embarrassing, so a belated apology for that haha. this time however ill be more active and...
So, I feel like ZZ is kinda failing me, and I just don’t know what I can do besides grind solves. I know EOcross, my F2L is really fast , and my last layer is meh. Idk, I just feel like ZZ isn’t the way. So for the rest of this month, I’m gonna use CFOP (because I was already a previous CFOP...
Sean Patrick Villanueva just got the first sub-5 3x3 Single with Roux!

What I basically want to know is what are all the pros and cons of the three most popular methods.
I ,at the moment, use Roux but I want to know if Roux is a good method.
Write down your opinions on CFOP, Roux and ZZ.
The idea of HTORoux is to produce decent to low move counts for Half Turn Only Reduction (HTOR) from the Domino state in a reasonably quick and easy way, making this method ideal for FMC.
The reasons behind this:
There is a high chance for slice move insertions to solve bad edges.
I know this is not new, in fact it's just kian mansour algs for Roux EO, but... I found a better way to organize cases and help people finding the solutions easily.
The cases are in a table with top and bottom of the cube. Solutions lead to the arrow case if it isn't arrow.
I hope it helps, as...
