Just wanted to share my new personal record 3x3 single. At the time of this post, my new record is 13.81 and this PB is probably going to stand for quite a while. I got a pretty lucky F2L, last layer was pretty normal.

If anyone wants to have a look, click this badge to see the replay :)

I improved my pb avg100 by 2 whole seconds?? Going from 27.14 to 25.10 in 2 weeks is insane!
I also got a pb single of 16.29 with the easiest F2L ever

L2 U B2 L2 R2 U R2 U R2 D2 B' R B2 R F2 R' F2 U' L'
z2 // inspection

D' R' D F' D' // cross

U L U' L' // F2L 1
U y' L U' L' // F2L 2
U2 R U R' U R U R' // F2L 3
U2 R' U R // F2L 4

U' f (R U R' U') f' U x (R' U' L U) (R U' L' U) x' // 2 look OLL
x R2' D2 (R U R') D2 (R U' R) x' // PLL (A)

I'm now trying to be color neutral!

For OLL you could've done F (R U' R' U') (R U R' F') and then T-perm which is way faster. But GJ and congrats!
Thanks! The only OLL alg I know besides the ones from 2 look is (R U R' U') (R' F R F'), so I don't know the case you're talking about yet :)
I use 2 look OLL and 1 look PLL

One thing I could've done better in my solve was that 3rd F2L pair: U R U' R' U' R U R' // F2L 3
Which would've still given me a free pair: U' R' U R // F2L 4
But I would've gotten a much better OLL case, followed by a U perm

4:40.20 5x5 PB
brought it down from 5:09.62 not that long ago
imo the main thing that i improved were centers,white center is down in around 10 seconds now compared to the 20-30 it took me before,hopefully soon i can start doing all centers in under a minute
EDIT:4:27.25,literally the solve after,5x5 is incredible

I just got my first 2 sub-30 kilominx singles right in a row: 27.93 and 28.50, and got a PB 31.42 ao5 in the weekly comp! Also I'm officially sub-1:30 with megaminx and I recently got my first sub-1:20 ao12!

4:06.52 5x5 PB single with parity
i have a better edge pairing method for 2 edges before l4E, and i have a better edge pairing strategy
sub-4 is very possible considering i take around 3-5 seconds on parity
