Wow congrats, is there a video you recorded of you doing the attempt?
Thank you, that's really nice! :)
The support in the cubing community is simply amazing!

And i did record the execution, yes. However, this was mainly for me to review mistakes and for now, i would prefer not to post a video of me on Youtube :) Maybe i'll post one when i get a bit faster ;)

Finally got my first megaBLD success! 18:53.59[11:09.09]

Started off megaBLD with 3style corners and TuRBo edges, and working on a 3300 word category letter pair system so as to avoid memorizing more than one word per 2 piece pair. Took 15 tries to get this success lmao


considering memo is 11:09 but the amount of stuff to memo should be about equal to a 4x4....I think I can improve this a little bit :p
gotta finish that 3300 word letter pair list first though

I found his channel





Dong Jae Lee is very talented. He has been actively competing in the WCA only for over a year before the pandemic hit. (https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/persons/2018LEED01)

Just saw all his video on his channel, his 52/52 in under 2 hour multi attempt is impressive.

I even made a forum post about his MBLD PR attempt, where his judge kinda broke a WCA reg by touching the cube, https://forum.worldcubeassociation.org/t/should-judges-be-allowed-to-arrange-the-cubes-in-a-mbld-attempt/11216

I hope he continues competing and does not get bored of blindsolving anytime soon.

Thought I would share some of my first success videos as well:

6BLD: 1 hour 29 mins total (with 46 minutes memorization)
Video:

7BLD: 2 hours 35 mins total (with 1 hour 36 minutes memorization)
Video:

Megaminx: 58 minutes total (with 29 minutes memorization)
Video:

For my first success videos I kinda went slower and much more carefully to guarantee I get a successful solve. My subsequent attempts were faster.

And as an extra here is a video of my Square-1 blindfolded solve (first success on video):

Enjoy and best regards!

First 6BLD success, finally !!
27:43[17:28]
Cube: MGC
First attempt was in the summer of 2018, then maybe around 12 attempts split over 2.5 years.

Yesterday was my first overall BLD attempt in about 2 months, missed by a slice somewhere and a few pieces.
And today's finally the right time! I again went really safe for memo, and I took my time for exec too; but it's quite satisfying to finally get it. Now with a few more attempts, tracing for obliques will get better and faster and I can rush a bit more.

Wheyyy! Glad to see another Malaysian on the 6+ BLD ranking, how many attempts did it took you to get the 6bld and the 7bld success? Your accuracy seems superb

Hellloooo @NevinsCPH glad to see another Malaysian here! Thanks for the kind words for my 6bld and 7bld solves, lol.

My 6BLD was 2nd try and 7BLD was 4th try. I went pretty slowly/carefully and hence more accurate? :p Most of the time during 7BLD I was feeling for the right layers to turn, I am not really used to turning the 7x7 since I don't speed solve it.

I see that your 6BLD and 7BLD times are much faster than me though, haha. How long have you been doing 6BLD/7BLD for?

My first few attempts goes way back in 2012 but I never have any success so I didn't try till about 2017/18 I think. Don't really remember.
