This is going to be my progression thread for the title (3x3 sub-15 goal and optimizing F2L and learning CLL, EG1 and EG2 (in that order)). There might be other stuff like 4x4 but other than that, it’s just another progression thread ig.

(Will probably update this daily if i can remeber)

Learn some gud algs and gud look ahead skills to help with 3x3+2x2.
For 4x4, I understand you are a little slow compared to your 3x3 times. Therefore, I would recommend you try learning Yau from this site: www.cubeskills.com. You can learn a lot from cubeskills.

I don't even know call and average 2-3 seconds.Imo the only reason you should learn them is just for taking 2x2 seriously. I recommend Ram Thakkar's video on cll
Thanks for the tips. And I would like to be maybe top 20 for 2x2 in my country (big milestone) so I’m taking it seriously.

I was having such a hard time remembering which t cll algs went with what case and as soon as I organize them into categories, i can remember them really well

Edit: i just finished the t CLLs and gonna work on just everything that I’ve done so far

and going to do some slow solves for 3x3 to get better at optimizing it

Edit v1.2: I lied about saying that I was going to do an Ao12 every day I’ll do it definitely once a week and whenever I can
