Thanks! I know, i'm not famous because my official avg isn't that great (2.50) but i've only been on two competitions...

But both sub2s were done at the same competitions and that was some months ago when i wasn't sub2

Look at rami, on a competition with three rounds (in my case only two): he did't get a sub 2 single and his best avg5 was 2.40.
But on his next competiton (4 months later) he got his 1.69 WR.

This seems sort of realistic, because look at this:
37. (0.715) * U F' U R U2 R2 U2 R2 U'
This can be solved in 5 moves:
U' (prepare green/yellow/red corner for insertion)
R U' (setup corner)
B (place green/white/orange corner in its spot)
R' (finish insertion of corner, LL skip)

However, what if all scrambles are similar?
43. 1.862 * U' F' U R' F2 U F U2 R' U2
After playing around, I couldn't find a really easy first layer solution, or an LL skip.

What I think makes these believable is the fact that the fast times have easy solutions, and the slower times don't.

Edit: The amount of LL skips might be suspiciously high, but there is a chance of it happening, and it isn't like 1 in 100,000,000,000,000 or something. The chance might be in the range of say, getting an LL skip at a competition. The odds of that are .03% in one round, .06% in two rounds, .10% in three rounds, and .13% in four rounds. Do we accuse people who get LL skips at competitions of cheating? I haven't worked it out, but getting several last layer skips on 2x2 (1/162, or about 0.6%, for each one) may be a comparable chance given 50 solves.

Even though there are many reasons to say that this is fake, I think I am willing to believe you. Two rounds of 2x2 three months ago is nothing to go by. After all, a 2.5x average is possible even for people who know full EG if the scrambles are bad.

On that note, do you know full EG?

helicopter cube UWRs I guess:

32.72 DF DL FL UB UF BL DR FL UB UF FR BL UF FL UB DR UF BR DL FL DB UL BR DL BL DB UL BR DR UF UB DF DL DR UL UR FR DF DB FL
UWR was 34.00, I got 34.36 and 34.75 before this. Very irritating :p
reconstruction:
z2
DL //face
UR UF UR UF FR UF FR //corner
y' FR UR UF UR FR //corner
y' FR UR y' UL FR //corner
y UL UF UR UF UR FR //corner
UL UR //CO
y2 UL UR UB UL UR //CP
y UF FR UR FR UF FR UR FR y UR FR UF FR UR FR UF FR //centers
(41.01), 41.50, 44.71, (48.23), 43.90 = 43.37
(40.87), 57.76, 45.10, (59.44), 41.01, 41.50, 44.71, 48.23, 43.90, 46.96, 50.75, 40.87 = 46.08
also 53.81 ao100

Or even better, Lucas. He got his first sub2 single at the same comp he got 1.88 average (I had 2 or 3 sub2s before my 1.69).

EDIT: But I do wonder, is this stackmat?

Antonie, i can't remember that i got that... But anyway, i'll try to get a decent avg12 up, but i'm not at home from tomorrow to 15.7 so i won't be able to record some solves
I know full EG and LEG-1.
Woah GJ. Even if you can't get a good average, can you film anyway? I love seeing 1 looks and stuff like that. Even if you had a bad average, post it; I would enjoy seeing Full EG and LEG being used. It would be cool.
