4BLD DNF 33[20]
Super causal attempt. Wasn't trying to go fast at all.

But come on!
This is the second time I've been off by two centers.

Really easy scramble, no cycle breaks in wings, corners had a 5cycle + an Aperm. Centers already had 6-7 pieces solved.

Calling this an accomplishment even though DNF because I haven't practiced big bld in months, and this is the first time I've used centers comms instead of U2.

5BLD: DNF(1:37.34[1:10])

Off by a bit, but only because I didn't undo one set up move (r) during xcenters. I realized the mistake halfway through +centers, and just felt depressed for the rest of the solve. Exhausted too, because I had taken so long to memorize and review the cube to make sure that I would get a success.
And I'm almost glad that I DNFed my 4BLD attempt earlier, as I know remember that I wanted a 5BLD success first. Luckily, the weekly competition has two more 5BLD scrambles.

I was a little worried about using comms for +centers, since they seem a bit weird to me compared to xcenters. But +center comms are just as easy and about as fun! I'm almost tempted to learn comms for normal 3BLD and wings, but I'm not insane yet. Gosh, I've got to finish ZBLL first!

No more Big BLD non-success-posts here. My next post here will be a 5BLD success :)!

yeah boiiiii

5BLD - 4:08.83 [1:45]

done with the white Wushuang I won at Nats

centers were actually not very lucky, 11 x comms and 10 + comms, wings were 11 comms but 3 of them were cases with the pieces on the same edge which isn't very good, midges were 5 comms and corners were 4

Feeling a bit down about another terrible 7bld attempt, i decided to do another solve where i go through and trace/write down all the memo for a scramble and then do every comm bld, checking in periodically to see if I messed anything up. Including the memo/writing it down/execution and checking pieces occasionally, the process took ~25 minutes and I did everything perfectly :D

woooooooo 4bld pb:

Not even lucky imo, and corner parity. 1:30 exec feels really nice too :D

Edit: ok so I think I misscrambled and gave myself a worse scramble than what I should have gotten lol. My solve was 5' for corners, 24 for wings, 17 for centers irrc (centers are audio now so its pretty hard to remember)

Wow. You guys are the master in this event. I just successfully solved a 3x3 blindfolded for the 2nd time in MY LIFE. The time is 9:58.14 (memo 7:39.89). The method I use is M2/OP. Memorizing method for edges is pictures/visual idk :p, and corners is letter pairing

P.S first sub-10

Not even a good attempt, but my first 4BLD with sub-1 memo.
3:23.93[57.05]
It is very good considering I didn't practice BigBLD for more than a month(I was practicing only MBLD, 3BLD and Memo sports, because at my next comp there is no bigBLD, and my main 5x5 is broken).
And today I decided to do some random solves. This was the 4th attempt :D.
