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.

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.

what in the world

(47/100) mean of all 24.09
splits 8.39/15.70

best single 18.87
best mo3 22.55
best ao5 22.67

time distribution:
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

Finally a 7/7 MBLD in 32:25.77.

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.

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 :p


Honorable mention: 2:22.58 official 4BLD :D

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.:)
