Round 21
Goal: Sub-DNF

1. DNF - 2 flipped edges
2. DNF - 2 flipped edges
3. 5:38.40
4. DNF - Started doubting in the middle of executing a corner and couldn't recover
5. 4:14.03
6. DNF - Again doubt, this time middle of edge exec
7. DNF - twisted corners + 2 incorrect edge targets
8. DNF - twisted corner, twisted edge
9. DNF - Couldn't make the memo stick
10. 5:54.42
11. DNF - missmemo'ed 1 corner
12. 4:30.72

Number of memo and execution mistakes are slowly coming down, and times are quite OK as well, considering I've only been doing bld for a month/6 weeks now :)

Round 21 Results

Long break, a few competitors but trying not to completely forget this thread.

Results for round 21 are updated and can be found here (Google Sheets). Different events in different tabs. Please inform me if you find any mistakes.

I removed 10-round-old results from 3BLD, intending to do the same for other events soon.


Round 22
Racing to sub-x (and other goals for multi) in all the official blindfolded events. Set the goal, and keep it up for three weeks in a row - or 4 weeks out of 5 - in order to graduate and set a new goal. If you take a hiatus, you won't lose your streak. If you are first time racing, or changed your method, please include it to your post as well (no need for that in MBLD though).
_____________
3BLD
Compete an average of 12, like usual. The six worst attempts will be eliminated and the mean of the remaining six is your result for the week. At maximum, you can get 6 DNF:s without losing your average.

4BLD & 5BLD
Compete 5 attempts, the best of them is your result for the round. Not necessary to use all of the attempts though.

MBLD
Generate your own scrambles. You can do three attempts per week if you wish to, the best one is count as your result. 1 hour time limit.

You may set whatever goal you feel like, because multi can get so long-term. You can race to a tough goal, or try to keep up your current level. You can also set time goals if you wish to; you decide it!
_____________

We'll see about the amount of competitors: maybe I'll try to update this every other week from now on.

24. 40.79 R U2 D F U' D2 L' D2 B D2 F2 B' R2 B U2 D2 B U2 L
P.S. Ignore the scrambles.
I was reading the start of this thread and I'm starting to think BO4 out of 12 attempts is the way to do it even though I voted for #3. Accuracy would be comparable to a competition. Although, that may not determine your 'global' average. But if the idea is to see how fast we can do an average of 12 then only count the better half then what we're doing is fine.

4BLD
goal: sub-2:00.00
result: 1:55.90
DNF(1:57.33), 1:55.90, DNF(2:18.18), DNF(1:28.13)[gave up], DNF(2:04.85)
First definitely should have been sub-1:50, messed up center memo and had to redo, and completely forgot to memo last corner target causing the DNF, but I'm still happy that I met the goal (didn't expect to get a sub-2:10)

3BLD
goal: sub-30
result: 29.79
26.81, (37.48), 34.98, 27.66, 29.03, (DNF), (DNF), (35.54), 28.61, (35.24), 31.36, (DNF)
ew counting 34, still happy because I haven't done 3BLD at all in the past week
