No work done by me on 5-style in the first quarter of 2022. The good news is that I am having a comp next week which has NxN events. Sadly there is no BLD so I do not yet have a chance to update my BLD scores officially, S R S' R' U R' S' R U S U2.

wait... you memorized over 120k algs????
I have generated 120k algs. Memorised 30k of them weakly. And know about 6k algs with good recall. It's a long process.

Bruh how???? All these algs are for BLD right?
I can't even do one BLD, I'm learning Old Pochmann. I understand how to do it, but I'm having trouble remembering setup moves for edges, and sometimes I can't memorize the letters I'm supposed to memorize

And I thought ZBLL was a lot...

Yes these algs are for BLD. They solve 4 edges at a time.

If you are starting out with BLD with OP/OP method, try to write down the setup moves and then drill them out while looking at the cube.
To memorise the letters, make letter pairs to make it easier. For letter pairs I advise, to make a list and have a fixed person or object for each letter pair. As you get more comfortable with the system, you start adding more words or expressions for a single letter pair.

Good luck practising! Hope you get your first 3BLD success soon yo.

Well as to memorizing letters, I've tried JPerm's method, to make a very short story with words that contains the letters. I always end up forgetting the letters in the words because I'm not sure which one I should do
Thanks for the tip though

Keep at it. You will make progress.

Have you heard of the term 'deliberate practice'?

If yes, try to implement that in your solving/learning sessions.

i just saw this... 120k algs? i dont even know 120

YES I KNOW RIGHT
He said he memorized 30k algs weakly, and knows 6k algs with good recall.
@abunickabhi maybe you should memorize all 3472 1LLL algs and you'll be a world class sub-5 solver for 3x3
Knowing algorithms is a just facet of being a good solver. We need good turning and good practice to be sub-5 level. For example, Jabari knew all the ZBLLs in 2015 but he was only sub-10, he did not turn fast or practice as much as Feliks.

I am barely sub-9 in 3x3, and I have a long way to go to shave off those 4 seconds.

My main event is MBLD so I only focus on 5-cycles and letter quads.

I have a question:
I was reading the WCA regulations recently, and I saw it said logos aren't allowed in any BLD event. Why can't you have a logo on your cube doing a BLD event? Or does it just mean you can't have a stickered logo (because that way you can tell which center you're on) and logos that are imprinted on the pieces is fine?

you should be proud of that sub9 average

Even imprinted logos are not allowed.

I agree that they cannot be felt and do not give any advantage to the BLD competitor. The rule exists to maintain uniformity in the rule about logos in BLD and to not make the job of the delegate who checks BLD cubes tougher. There can be borderline cases where the imprinted logo can be felt a bit, or a stickered logo cannot be felt and it is tough for the delegate to take an accurate call in these situations. The best and reliable solution is to disable usage of stickers in all 4 blind WCA events.

Yo how did you do for your comp @abunickabhi?

Edit:
I just saw your WCA results page. Very nice sub-8 solve
Also great job on getting podiums for 5x5-7x7
There was no BLD event though...

Btw do you have a recon for the 7.98?

The last layer was a H OLL and a Ua perm. The cross was 3 move and all the F2L pairs were easy.

The scramble was: B2 L' U2 L2 D F2 R2 B2 R2 U F2 B L2 D' B2 R' F2 R' D'
I do not have the solve on video. I tried to reconstruct it but was not able to get the H OLL I got that day.

Are you color neutral or white only?

I am method neutral (CFOP+Roux+3-style). In CFOP I am DCN and in Roux x2y. In the finals, I did 4 CFOP solves and one Roux solve.
