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 had 2 attempts, and my second one was a 1/2 4:42.897, dnfing the second cube by 3 corners. See you next update.

8/1- 1/2 4:42.897
8/3- 1/2 2:02.169
8/3- 2/2 3:07.037

Are you planning on doing old-style MBLD or current rules?
Would also like to know this, because doing it subhour would require lots and lots of skill, especially considering BLD exec on 2x2 is terrible most of the time.
Next: I hope you are aware that you will be memorizing the same amount of information as a 34 cube multiblind (according to the following calculations anyway) and it would be very difficult to get 100/100.
Assume 18 letters per 3x3 for memo. 6 for 2x2 since you always start with at least 1 corner solved. So 100 2x2s would be 600 letters. Divided by 18 gives 33.333... So 100 2x2s = 33 or so 3x3s. Obviously it varies a bit but I think this is a solid calculation
So you will need quite some skill either way.
Regardless, interesting task. Goodluck

Seeing as you don't have a big amount of knowledge and experience on blind, and also multiblind, this might have been a large task to undertake, and maybe a bit rushed into. As I've mentioned, this is equal to around a 32-34 3x3 multiblind. That's a whole lot of information to memorize. I'm not saying you won't be able to do it, many people could if they wanted to memorize so much, after sufficient practice. But I think it's a lot more than you think it is. Also yeah, no one needs 100 2x2s, as abunickabhi said 'unneccesary'.

I for one would love to see you succeed. Is it a silly goal? Sure it is. Just like my 10 square-1's blindfolded. Maybe it is significantly sillier to buy 100 2x2x2s than it was for me to buy 10 matching square-1s, but my square-1s were pretty silly. And it's fun to be able to say you're the only one who's ever done something, even if it is something that is somewhat silly and only never done before because no one else was silly enough to try it. :)
