Got a 24.48 PB ao12 and 22.92 PB ao5 yesterday, was kind of iffy about it because it was on chaotimer and it seemed like there was a lot of easy scrambles, but now after checking all of them I'm feeling better about it :p definitely gonna count these :)

The ao5 alg count was 9, 10, 9, 10, 10, so really relatively not lucky for a PB ao5 actually
Ao12 alg count was 10, 9, 10, 9, 10, 10, 11, 9, 9, 10, 11, so 2 algs less than average. Fairly lucky for an ao12 but definitely not crazy lucky

(not reconstructing because i didnt record thus can't remember how i cycle broke in a lot of cases, just counting number of targets/algs)
1. 23.99 U B2 U' F2 D' L2 D B2 D2 R' F' L' D2 B' R U2 R' B U (10'/8, 10 algs)

At MPEI Open 2018 I won 4BLD, 5BLD, MBLD and got 2nd place in 3BLD!

5BLD ER and WR2 3:42.25! Sub-Kaijun, I'm happy to finally get ER!!
Won 4BLD with 2:08.09 single. That's a really bad time for me, it was a very bad scramble and a very safe attempt, but I'm happy that I got 1st place :D
MBLD solve was 30/42 1:00:02+, honestly I'm satisfied with it considering the MBLD organisation and conditions at this comp - they were the worst I've experienced so far.
In 3BLD I got 23.90, 33.23, 23.47: 26.87 mean - 2nd solve was pretty sad, could be NR mean, and I didn't win, but I'm not complaining because I haven't been practicing 3BLD lately.
That’s impressive. You do a “safe” 4BLD solve considerable faster than I do 3BLD when I am going for broke!

6x6x6 BLD ao12!!
Done in the Weekly Competition over a period of 12 consecutive weeks.
(22:06.27), (DNF), 22:59.76, 31:25.08, 27:41.85, 32:49.79, 23:56.70, 24:38.58, 26:38.21, 35:01.76, 28:48.98, 30:06.25
Average: 28:24.70

Now I can stop being so careful and try to go fast again. :)
Whoa, that’s a great success rate!
Is this your first ao12 on 6BLD?
How many solves did you ‘accidentally’ get success before you started going slow?

Thank you! Absolutely this is my first ao12, by a long shot! My previous best streak was 5 in a row. Now I have 10.
I tried for a while to just "not care". I would say that 35:01.76 was the first one where I really started playing it safe. The 28:48.98 was actually a really easy scramble - I was being ultra-careful and took over 17 minutes to memorize, but executed in just 11 minutes. That one might have had a chance at being a PB if I hadn't been being careful.

So in an effort to estimate my global average a bit better, I reset my 5bld session every 50 attempts and log all the stats before resetting each one

I just finished my current 50 and noticed it had pretty huge improvements :)

Total was 19/50 accuracy and a 3:46.36 overall mean
If I DNF the slowest solves until 30% accuracy, it is 3:41.16 overall mean,
" " 20% accuracy, it is 3:32.92 overall mean,
" " 10% accuracy, it is 3:29.33 overall mean

Super late, but I got my first official sub-1 almost 3 weeks ago, a 56.
Scramble + Reconstruction: https://goo.gl/EBvo9g

I also had a 47 DNF earlier in the comp, my first ever sub-50 attempt ever. Still some kind of accomplishment I guess.

(I really should have twisted the corner with a comm with the parity target.)

I'm over half done creating my edge list, so hopefully I'll stop using orozco edges soon.
