The community largely doesn't care about 222 singles because it's literally a matter of getting a 4-move scramble and then executing the solution really fast. It's not interesting. Maybe you are the world best. But nobody cares, so it doesn't matter.

Don't take this negatively or anything. If you want something that the community recognises… work on something the community recognises instead! Like, legitimately get good at 2×2×2, be globally sub-1.5; I'm sure people will start paying attention to you if you can manage that. It's not going to be easy, because of course it's not going to be easy; otherwise everyone would already have done it.


The cubing community is full of kids. There is absolutely nothing special about being young here.

Also, the thing about kids telling tall tales is that sometimes the lies are really obvious to those with more experience. (This is obvious with a moment's thought—we've been here for longer, we know the tell-tale signs, etc.) Mr. Rubric's post is exactly one of those. I'm not going to mention in public why I'm so confident that they're lying, but you'll have to take my word for it that I usually err on the side of caution rather than calling people out.

I respect your scepticality of my time despite my disagreement (I mean obviously). People can believe what they want to and I’m proud of my time nonetheless. Also saying that you won’t explain why you are skeptical makes it just seem like you’re doing it just for the sake of it.

Edit- You talk about 2x2 single being unimpressive, but Shaun never necessarily said his .32 was impressive. It was fast, but there’s a difference between fast and impressive. So really you’re arguing with a claim Shaun never made. -\_(-_-)_/-

Yes this solve is legitimate this is a csTimer scramble. I'm sorry I didn't film it or have any real proof of its validity, so I hope you all can trust me on this one. Also I do have a picture of the time, but apparently the file is too large for the server to handle, so if someone could tell me how to fix that that would be great. I feel like people will take this seriously if they're shown a picture.

Also pls like and share (if thats even a thing here lol I'm new i only made this account so I could post this) so this can get publicity and get recognized as the legitimate world best single that it is.
I’m willing to believe it’s possible but considering that this scramble has already been posted in here in like 2007 it makes me think otherwise. Also it is present in ICS (Italian cube scrambler) and all those were put by hand. This said it is possible but unlikely. Also I made Feliks and Antonine and a few others try the same scramble at Rijswijk open 2018

Got my first sub 30 with feet.

29.67

I hand scramble most of my feet solves so I can't reconstruct, but LL was pure twist L which isn't a nice case, but certainly isn't the worst.

F' R D2 R' F U2 F' R D2 R' F U2

I looked down at around 27 and was pretty sure that I was going to make it. I jumped up and paced around as one does when I saw the time.

I've got a comp this weekend too so maybe I'll repeat my performance.

E: I also got a 10.81 OH single on my new stickerless MF3Rsv2. I also got the v3, which is way better.
Probably going to be my new main for 2H.
v2 is good and a lot faster than the v3 so it's either going to be a triple back up OH cube (behind my valk and mini weilong [but my mini weilong is kinda dying so idk]), or my new carry-around cube.

DP but these are official results

Big Cheese 2019 yesterday:

Feet: 35.40 single, 44.66 average. Both 97th in the world! My first time being top 100 for an average. In early 2017 my 46 feet single was 71st in the world.

3x3: 8.52 single, 11.15 average. This finals average had a counting 9.32. Top 2000 and 3000 respectively.

Megaminx: 52 single and 58 average. No notable ranking changes, but they are nice results.

At my first competition for feet (Princeton winter 2019), I got a 36.40 average and a 31.49 single and podiumed. The average is 42th in the world and the single is 57th in the world as of 2/9/19.
At the same comp, I got my first official sub 10 average for 3x3.

single: 3:42.x → 3:37.x
ao50: 4:21.477 → 4:19.034

Oh, and…
cube: Wuji → Wuji M ;)

Only done 14 solves on it so far, and it's already showing great promise. Rolling ao50 might drop further over the next week, and hopefully I can pull off a sub-4:10 official mean (which should bring me back to top 1000).

3x3x3 single PB progression in the last 20 days: 11.126→10.73→10.57→10.51→8.33
Also I brought my ao12 PB from 14.90 to 14.58.
And I got my first sub-20 OH single. These are my OH PBs, all of which I achieved last night:
single: 17.69
ao5: 24.19
ao12: 25.83
ao50: 27.85
ao100: 28.44

I'm so happy to be at my best after all these years of cubing on and off and to still be making progress. There's no better feeling in the world than progress. I really need to get back at 2x2x2 and 4x4x4 though. My skill level with those has dropped recently cause I severely neglect them. But I will probably continue to neglect them for a bit cause I'm on a roll with other events. I just wish I had more time in my life so I could steadily progress with everything at once. I'm tired.
