Everyone does a member intro but when I joined I didn’t see the point. If you guys are interested you can read it if you want, but if you aren’t interested then it’s a tldr.

Hello! I am the ultimate Waffle guy. I use CFOP for 3x3 but I know a bit of LEOR and Mehta and might try learn ZZ at some point. I am very good at learning algorithms and know probably ~200. I started cubing in 2019, but kinda didn’t practise much throughout lockdown. My main events that I practise a lot are 4x4, 5x5, Pyraminx and 3x3.

Okay, into my times:

2x2:
Single: 0.66
Average: 3.44
Normal Average: 4.5-5

3x3:
Single: 7.90
Average: 11.96
Normal Average: 16-17

4x4:
Single: 40.32
Average: 57.62
Normal Average: 1:15

5x5:
Single: 1:44.68
Average: 1:59.97
Normal Average: 2:15-2:20

Pyraminx:
Single: 1.208
Average: 3.76
Normal Average: 5-6

Skewb:
Single: 2.46
Average: 6.42
Normal Average: 8-10

Megaminx:
Single: 1:57.26
Average: 2.10.76
Normal Average: 2:30

3x3 OH:
Single: 40.57
Average: 47.89
Normal Average: 55

3x3 BLD:
Single: 3:58.26
Average: DNF lol
Normal Average: what can I say? My usual time is around 7 minutes

3x3 FMC:
Single: 27
Average: 32
Normal Average: 35

I don’t currently own a clock or anything bigger than a 5x5.

For BLD I use M2/OP and for FMC I just do random things to get a low move count :p

Any tips for learning EG? I’ve do enough L, T, H and Pi and kinda hit a roadblock on U. The algorithms aren’t sticking. I’m practising like 4 hours a day now because of lockdown but only dedicating ~1 hour to algorithm learning (which includes Megaminx and Pyraminx as well)
