I would really have to improve my memo time first. It would be stupid if I'd average 1:00 with 45 second memo and 15 second execution.
I agree :)

I agree that he should learn BH/3-style, but getting fast with it is not about TPS lol. It's about quick thinking and being able to memorize quickly without sacrificing your thinkahead. The reason you don't see so many people who are fast both at BLD and 3x3 is because 3-style is such a huge time-investment. Also, even if Antoine could shave 10 seconds off his execution with 3-style, it would likely hinder his memo from getting faster, which is probably more important at this point. Sorry for the rant, and I'm not trying to be negative, but I totally disagree with the view that it's all about TPS.
TPS is a factor of course , not a huge one , but still it is , and obviously he doesn't have any pauses in his execution , so I guess if someone like him put the effort and time in learning BH and be good at it , the HIGH TPS will make a difference , not a huge one , but it will obviously be an advantage , I'm no expert in BH like you of course :) , but this is what I think honestly

Antoine does have really high TPS in general, but it is simply not true that BLDers are a bunch of slow-turners. Just looking at the numbers, a fast BLDer usually has about 5-6 TPS, which may seem slow compared to fast 3x3 solvers, but cycles are often really awkward and contain a lot rotations, so there's just no way to turn as fast as someone doing F2L pairs.

I agree with that :) I'm a very slow turner and some cycles makes me feel so slow while doing them
I guess I thought that someone with high TPS could execute faster because I have a good think ahead and no pauses at all and I know which cycle I will do while doing the one before it , so I thought that my slow TPS is actually what's slowing me down , looks like I was wrong

so if not the TPS that's holding me back , then what is ?

There's a good chance it's your TPS. At one point my problem was TPS too.

I was just trying to say that TPS doesn't always translate into being fast at 3-style the way it helps in OP/M2.

Agreed. I am currently working on executing without pauses and then slow upping the TPS.

New MultiBLD PB: 4/4 in 19:50.02

Memo was strong, only had one execution error which I expected in memo xD Old PB was 2/2 in something. I've had 3/4 before, but never anything 100% more than 2. Corner memo took about a minute to recall on the last cube.

...what the ****

On twisttheweb with Louis, first solves of the day, first sub-1s! Still solving edges first.
First scramble is really lucky, last was just really good memo and execution.

Corners: NAh, BiG J [cw]
Edges: NJEL TPC [flip]
I think I scrambled wrong for the 58.

Seriously though what the hell.

Everyone will laugh, but first bld complete solve of any kind. 2x2 BLD: 4:00.86
the memo (lols): Being URD URL means breakdancing(BDD), UUR Normal.
Normal means just do corner changing alg. :D

I really want to get good at this... and do 3x3 ofc
Congrats, it feels so good to get your first success. I recommend you check out Noah's tutorial for 3x3, it's not as hard as it seems. I started just as the tutorial was coming out, and now I've got a sub-4 PB.
