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.

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.

Finally another 4bld PB! First success at home since before Stravanganza. Broke my 27 solve DNF streak.

I had a really interesting multiBLD attempt today

Tried 60 cubes, and the long term (4 pass memo, i.e. 1 pass for tracing and 3 reviews) 1-32 memo was really good for me, about 22:30 (pb2?)

The remaining cubes had a ridiculous plethora of terrible scrambles -- one of which being an 11'/3''''' lmao. Like I'm pretty sure those remaining 28 cubes didn't have a single scramble better than 10 algs, and probably 90% 11 algs or more, it was so annoying

I finished the 3 passes of 33-48 at 33:00 which was standard I guess, and moved onto the separate 2pass 12 mbld
I completely mistraced corners on one cube and realized it only during the review, so I last minute decided to just review cubes 49-59 one more time which I never do.

Total memo ended up being 40:27, and I knew I was doomed because I'd need sub-20 exec/cube to get sub-hour, and I spent a bunch of extra time on these 12 meaning recall on the 33-48 and especially the 1-32 would be much more difficult.

Ended up somehow getting 54/60 1:00:28 lol. I finished the second to last cube exactly at 1:00:00 so only solved one over the hour

20.01 exec/cube on a 60 cube mbld :p

Kinda more of a fail than an accomplishment but also not.

Got a 7/11 in 54:43[15:45]. Most cubes every solved successfully blindfolded. (previous was 6 from 2 days ago). I could also figure out my mistakes (thx Mike and Underwatercuber). My 3BLD cube I just entirely forgot last edge letters and then executed corners wrong (Orozco).

One was a commonish error of switching around my letters for UL and UR (D and B). I somehow do this for letters on the left and right side of the cube, sometimes outside, sometimes inside targets. Not so much anymore but yeah.
Another error was forgetting that last letter at end of edges (making it parity) and so when I executed uneven corners I realized an edge was not memo'd (last letter, ending up on piece I cycle broke to earlier).
The last of my cubes I executed I entirely forgot corners, later I could remember them all as soon as I checked the first letter (maybe didn't join with location well enough?).
