First 444 centres BLD success! (A full 4BLD attempt will still have to wait for me to learn and get familiarised with a lettering scheme for the wings, but baby steps!)

That is exactly the way that I learned how to solve 4x4 blind. I spent one day just memorizing and solving centers, then the next day memorizing and solving wings, and once I felt comfortable solving both centers and wings and I had the new parity algs or just new algs that I did not know before memorized, I combined it all together and attempted a full 4x4 blind solve.

Keep up the practice and I hope that you get a full 4x4 blind success soon.

Nice avg12 (24.66), with a nice avg5 in it (22.93, solves 5-9)

4x4 Blind PB 11:34.40 I did not think that it was going to be a success, especially since I had a DNF right before it, and I also thought that I had messed up a wing pair near the end of wings, but I am glad that I left it.

18+: 2 //lol
20+: 8 //wut
22+: 13
24+: 10
26+: 10 //some of these
28+: 3 //these
30+: 1 //and this one, completely spoiled the sub24... they all had only pauses during recall argh

that's just nonsense, what the f***, my PB mo100 was 24.37 before this, and right before that I wasn't even sub25... what in the world. Just WTF

yaaay, just finished a 3bld session with 55/100 accuracy and a 27.98 overall mean

Also I got a 23 on 10 algs, with 7.69 STPS!

The memo was faster then I thought is was going to be especially since it felt like I was spending way to much time having to go back and review a few cubes, but never the less pretty good time, and I really happy with the result.

4BLD PB
5:37[2:10]
Getting a sub-6 min solve gives a great feeling and a reduction of 1:35 from earlier PB.

Got my first record this weekend, 4:51.04 5BLD NAR

Just got ahold of the scramble and reconstructed it here. Was fairly easy (38 algs, and i think 41-42 is average), sans nerves I probably could have gotten something like 4:10-4:20 on this, but oh well, I'll get sub-4 next time anyway

Great Job @sigalig on getting the 5x5 BLD NAR and on your first record. That is quite impressive, and hopefully you can soon add more records to your profile.
