I've gotten a few low22 or high21 means lately, but I didn't even react.
However, I just tried to use a few slow comms to see if my accuracy would get better, and suddenly got two ao12s :D I got way happier with those. Can sb explain?

1. 27.188 x2 F2 U2 B2 D2 L' F2 U2 L B2 U2 L2 B' L D' F D2 R D' L2 U' F2 Rw' Uw'
2. 24.521 x2 U2 R2 B2 U2 B' R2 U2 B' R2 B' R' F' D U2 R' B2 L2 B2 R2 U' Rw2 Uw2

4. 25.940 x2 F' U' R2 U2 L2 D' R2 F2 U L2 D2 B2 L U F2 R2 F2 L2 F L B Rw' Uw
5. 24.564 x2 F2 L2 D2 B2 R F2 R2 D2 B2 D2 L' D L' B2 U L2 F L' U F2 R Rw' Uw
6. 24.763 x2 U2 D F U F U2 R L D' L2 B' R2 L2 F' L2 F U2 D2 Rw2 Uw
7. (DNF(24.070)) x2 F2 U L2 F2 R2 D' B2 U R2 B2 U' B' L' F' D R2 F' L F' Rw' Uw'
8. 22.022 x2 B2 R2 U2 L2 D F2 U2 F2 L2 F2 D R' D2 L2 U' L B' U2 F D' R' Rw' Uw2
9. 28.695 x2 R U2 B2 U' R2 U' B2 U2 R2 B R' U F D' R2 F L' F Rw2 Uw
10. 27.165 x2 L2 F2 D' F2 L F' L U' R B' U' F2 L2 D' L2 D R2 D R2 F2 Fw Uw
11. 27.168 x2 R L B2 D2 R' D2 B U B R2 F2 L2 B D2 L2 B R2 D2 L' Rw' Uw2
12. (21.509) x2 B2 F2 U' L2 U R2 D2 L2 D' F2 D B F' D' B2 U' L U2 R D' Rw' Uw

= 25.62 ao12 (part of a 23/30 mean = 76.66%)

Now, the last time I got an ao12 was 1200 solves behind, approximately 2 or 3 months ago.
Also, Manuel Gutman got a sub-me ao12 earlier today, so beating him is clearly satisfying :D Wena lemto!
Mean of splits was 7.7/17.9

Nice! I think you are more accurate with slow comms because you are more confident with them. The solution might be drilling more algs. It is one of my main problems too, I am going to start working on that soon.
Nice memo times too!

After a 8min try where I completely ****ed up, a ~6min30 with 2 flipped edges and an incorrect 3cycle corner, I have a PB of 6:21! Yeah me !! \o/ I was especially happy because there was no stickers already in place (2 twisted corners though), 2 different cycles for the edges, with 1 bad M-slice edge, and the attempts where consecutive (a few month ago, I couldn't do 2 edges memorization, that was too exhaustive).

For me as a future reference:
memo corner :1:07.00, edges: 2:25.21, execution edges: 1:31.79, corner: 1:17.10

Hmmmm, I think I'll try some 3BLD and see what happens.

1. 19.49 L' D' F2 D' L2 B' R' U' B' R2 L2 D2 F' U2 F U2 F U2 L2

OK, that'll do.
