Blindfold Accomplishment Thread

MBLD PB, first ever n/n at over 4 cubes!

13/13 20:05[13:26]

Memo: 1:02 per cube
Exec: 30.7 per cube
Total: 1:30 per cube (approx)

This is the first time I ever do a big review for the 8-pack... I always used to do only one review there. Now I did two. It worked out pretty well!

Also, one cube had a mechanical corner twist, which I fixed while blindfolded!!!!! Can't believe I got that one right!!!!

I believe Megaminx and Skewb are also terribly outdated but otherwise yes.
That ao12 by Jake is also most certainly not UWR indeed.
Yeah that ao12 is relatively old, pretty sure ishaan beat it at least once and jake probably beat it too. I'd assume gianfranco as well but he never shares pbs publicly so who knows

Sub 30 on cam, finally with full 3Style! My execution was terrible, though. Seriously shaky and full of lockups and hesitation.

Still pretty happy about it. Lots of room for improvement!

A decent mbld attempt last night: 40/42 in 55:45.34[37:29.65].

Second best attempt ever actually. This is almost 2 minutes faster than my 41/42 PB. DNFs were two flipped edges because I traced to the wrong side of an edge, and 3 corners because I did the comm for UBL DBL DBR instead of the inverse. So recall was perfect.
Also exec was 18:15 or 26.07/cube, and there was a 1:10 pause in there for one cube's edges, so without that it would have been approx. 24.5 exec/cube

Not really sure why I'm still trying 42. I guess I wanted to make myself feel better about doing terribly at last weekend's comp. I'll try a few 44 attempts next and then more 46.

Last night I watched Noah's video on 4bld, did one practice memo for centers and then went to sleep. This morning I woke up, spent 15 minutes really weakly memorizing the algs and then decided to do an attempt just for fun practice. It was somehow a success. I'm honestly extremely shocked because I made several errors while tracing pieces, some of which I had to go back and fix over 5 minutes later. Unfortunately, I forgot to change my computers settings and it went to sleep during the timing but I think it took around 40 minutes.

Weird average. I actually didn't notice that I was about to get an avg12, so the last solve wasn't even a safety, it was just slow.

21.649 was a 8/10, 22.657 was 7'/8. The 21 had especially easy algs for me.

Got this in a 22/28 session with a mean of 31.514, also pretty good.

1:56.69 4bld mo3 :D

Overall alg count was worse than average lol (25 algs, 23 algs, 25 algs)
Also first solve had 4.03 stps :D I think that's my first time breaking the 4 stps barrier for 4bld

A sad side note: the solve before the 1:53 was a 1:41 dnf by 2x centers. Would have been pb single and also would have ended up being a 1:50 mo3 :(

I haven't posted here in a long time.
Exactly one year after getting my multi NR and deciding to improve my systems (memo and exec), I've finally finished learning all my corner comms. They're not perfect, but they're pretty good.
I've also very nearly finished my PAO lists. So hopefully within a week or two I will start seriously practicing 3bld/multi again.

I wish I had more time for this.

This kind of feels like a fail but it was very close to being very very very good so I'll post it lol

9/10 multibld in 7:34[4:12]. Forgot the second edge image on one cube and gave up when trying to remember it.
I got 10/10 in 9:34 on the next try, which is "10/10 UWR" lol but that had a 1:20 pause so I'm not happy with it at all. I'll try some more later and hopefully get a sub-8 10/10 :)

Trying to get back into blindfolded for what must be the third time at least...today I broke my 4/4 PB with 10:51 which was a nice surprise. I'm also hoping to finally commit myself to switching to comms, so I've been trying to get used to doing simple stuff like setups to U and A permutations.

Nice! If you’re interested in comms I would recommend to also try setups to U2 M U2 M’, aka 4-mover. It’s not hard to get used to and is much faster than a U perm.
