I never even thought of timing virtual cube solves! :eek:

I only use them for practice as I find it hard to turn the correct layers, plus it doesn't matter if you screw up new algorithms - you just press reset. :)

Got back to cubing recently after taking a break for almost 1 year (mainly due to the entrance exams). I have gotten slow at most of the events I used to practice, but I have started to practice once again and am getting faster The only major accomplishment is that I got a 54.67 3BLD single which is really great as I had forgotten a lot of stuff and currently avg around sub 1:10. But I used to avg sub 50 back then so will eventually try to get back there :)

Just a few days ago I thought about not getting a new 3x3 PB single in a while. Well today I got a 6.16 which beats my 6.29 from March 18.

Generated By csTimer on 2020-07-12
single: 6.16

Time List:
1. 6.16 D' F L' D2 U2 R' D2 R B2 U2 L U2 L B D F2 U2 B' R' F'

x' // Inspection
Rw' R2' F // Cross
U R' U' R y U' L' U L // 1st Pair
R U R' L U' L' // 2nd Pair
R U R' // 3rd Pair
y y' U' R' U R U' R' U R // 4th Pair
R U R' U' R' F R F' U // OLL

Just a pretty straightforward solve, 4th pair was really bad and I had a long pause before OLL to see the skip.
At least I don't have a PB with a cube drop anymore.

Also this was my first 3x3 Single PB since early 2019 that I didn't get with my GTS2M, Valk M ftw!

Got my first Moyan I solve today and did it Intuitively! I finally realized I could use commutators similar to big cube centers. I did corners first then centers. Next I’ll try centers then corners and see if that is any easier since the centers can be solved with many less restrictions and then move to commutators for the corners.
This was a really fun puzzle to think through. The lack of fixed centers made determining the color scheme a real challenge since I didn’t take note of it before scrambling.
