Broke my 3BLD PB single by just a tiny bit on this week's forum comp.

2:51.964[1:30.362] (late 2017, probably) → 2:48.62[1:05.70]

Scramble #1: U L' R' U' L' B2 L R' B2 L D' F2 D' R D U' F2 R2 F2 Rw' Uw2
Scramble wasn't particularly good from an alg count perspective (lots of cycle breaks + two twisted corners), but it was relatively easy to memo, partly because all of the edges were oriented (as in, oriented for ZZ).

This weekend I got 2nd in 3BLD with a 1:57 (bad but I went safe), 1st in 4BLD with a 13:23 (safe, but nice) and 1st in multi-blind with a 6/9 in 60:00! For 5BLD I only got to do one attempt which was off by 2 centers and 3 midges. Now I’m going to start learning 3-style :)

Cubes: DaYan GuHong v2, FangShi ShuangRen, DaYan Zhanchi, ShengShou Aurora

Beat my old 4/4 by a minute, with a slower memo, so I can still drop this easily, just need to get the accuracy on point (and do multi more often :p )
Actual 3-style for corners instead of BH-ish comms helps a ton for execution

Ok so I'm sub for 3BLD right? But I've been really really slow at big bld, especially 4BLD for long time. (Like I average 7-8 min or worse and super inaccurate ). So I decided to learn a bunch of optimal comms a while ago but I was still really slow. Till today, when I got a successful solve and was super pumped. And ... Oh Wait it was Stanley who got me excited about big bld. Ok. So.

I got a new PB of [4:30ish]6:03.51! Yay! Memo was slow though.
I had gotten a couple of really close 5 min DNFs so knew I was getting faster.
Old PB was 6:54 It's really strange when you take a long break and then suddenly you're a lot faster lol
Drilling comms actually works lol
I took the time to do a reconstruction and it's pretty cool. I've been learning center comms from Graham's list and wings (more or less) from Daniel and Tom's list.
My buffers UFR UF UFr UBl Ul
Corners edges wings x and + centers

Attempted 5bld for the first time today on Weekly Comp 12. And very surprisingly it was a success. Video link to be added soon. 29:46[19:xx] Not good really I paused on wings wondering how in the world I could have one unsolved wing target. Found out I had another wing solved so the calculation then worked out. Other than that I didn't go much safe but we'll see what happens next.
Edit: Just DNF'ed solve 2 by 2 + centers. I'm getting the feeling I should have started 5bld long ago, I'm not too bad I think for 2nd attempt. 22:19[14:55]

I did a mbld attempt today, and while it didn't have the best accuracy, the exec/cube and the total time/cube were really awesome for me

52/60 in 58:42

memo was 38:24 which is not terrible but also not decent for me now. I'm usually aiming for 38:00 or less on these 60 cube attempts.

But then exec was 20:18 :eek:
20.30 exec/cube on a 60 cube attempt wtf
This is by a significant amount, my fastest exec/cube on any attempt where I use my normal amount of reviews. By that I mean, not like how i threw an extra review in for my 52/52 WB or 42/42 NAR, attempts like that.

It's funny, this exec/cube is actually faster than the exec/cube in both my 52/52 WB and 42/42 NAR lol. Those were 20.37 exex/cube and 21.00 exec/cube, respectively.

Also fun things to note about this attempt:

The separate 2pass 12 cube mbld i do at the end of these 60 cube attempts was 12/12 in 9:28! This is my first time ever getting 12/12 with 2pass memo (1 pass for initial tracing and 1 more pass for 1 review)
Also, I made zero memo recall mistakes o_O
4 DNFs were from missing a move, 3 from doing a comm incorrectly, and 1 from tracing wrong.

Insane metrics!
