more clonks

single: 13.825 → 12.093
ao12: 18.225 → 16.619
ao50: 19.973 → 18.712
ao100: DNF → 19.425

(edit) 50 more solves:

single: 12.093 → 10.456
ao50: 18.712 → 18.079
ao100: 19.425 → 18.568
ao200: DNF → 19.905

---

(edit edit) 200-ish more solves:

ao12: 16.619 → 14.428
ao50: 18.079 → 15.458
ao100: 18.568 → 15.953
ao200: 19.905 → 17.402

DNF rate is kinda high, which is a bit terrifying. Anyhow, 24 non-sub-20 solves out of the last 200, or an 88% chance for each single solve to hit a 20-second cutoff, which makes for a 98.56% chance of hitting cutoff within two attempts. That's enough clonking for now.

Sub 50 second average (I've been cubing for a couple weeks now, use beginner method, and am learning 4-look last layer) so far, but I can't wait to update this.

Edit: I got a PB of 33 seconds, and got a PB of 5 seconds on 2x3 (I average around 17 seconds, which is still a big improvement for 2x2). Also, I learned how to solve mirror cubes (2x2 & 3x3).

I taught 2 people how to solve the cube today! Do you all teach the daisy when teaching people how to solve or not.

if i thought someone to solve the cube i think id just teach them to start in any color so they can be color neutral when they learn cfop

Yeah. I’m gonna tell them that the next time I see them. They won’t know it yet but it will save them the struggle later on.

Yes just reduces my 5x5 PB from 3:02.54 to 2:52.22

I didn't realise my PB ao100 wasn't sub-12, but it is now!

ao50: 11.807 → 11.734
ao100: 12.046 → 11.938
ao200: 12.161 → 12.137

Also I didn't post an update on my 7th 10k session (2021-07-28 to 2022-10-22) because all my averages got significantly worse, but it looks like that trend might reverse. (6th 10k update, for reference.)

TPS PB, first time over 7 (probably, I don't reconstruct every solve)

Generated By csTimer on 2023-01-16
single: 8.27

Time List:
1. 8.27 D2 U R2 U L2 R2 D' F2 U2 B2 F' U R' D2 B L D2 L2 F2 U

y' x' // inspection
D' l F' L D' L D' // cross

U' R' U' F U R U' R' F' R // OLL
U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' // PLL

60 turns / 8.27 seconds = 7.26 TPS

Overall quite happy with this solve. Despite working on xcross/cross+1 in inspection a decent amount recently, I wasn't able to do that on this scramble. The pause after cross was probably the longest of the whole solve (I suspect the first U' of the first f2l pair was done before I had actually noticed the pair, but I don't remember exactly.) But nothing felt particularly lucky, it was just four average f2l pairs that for the most part I didn't have to pause to find at all. A very finger trick friendly last layer helped as well.

As a side note, I am still currently white cross only. I spent some time this past month practicing yellow cross solves, but I'm still a second or two slower on average, and I'm wondering if it's even worth switching at this point. I'm 22 and a college student - my time is fairly limited, and I probably wouldn't see any time improvement for a year or so, which is pretty demotivating.
