Finally sub-1.

51.73s. R' F R' U R2 F L F2 B L' D2 R2 F' U2 F' B2 U2 F2

4 solved pieces and 1 twisted corner and no parity yay.

Time to go slow because I'm switching my buffer. (and learning 3style.) So I think this is my final pb of M2/OP session, maybe?

Last 3 mbld attempts:

55/60 1:00:54 (52/60 1:00:00)
59/60 59:23
54/60 1:00:27 (52/60 1:00:00)

48.67 mo3 lol
hopefully I can roll that 44 pointer tomorrow

EDIT:

lol oops
just found a really hidden DNF in the pile lol

so actually this last attempt was 53/60 1:00:27, 51/60 1:00:00

rip. I guess 48.00 is still kind of satisfying tho

8/8 MBLD!! 28:37[20:01]. Since Weekly Comp 2019-01 I've been doing MBLD (0/2 for like 3 weeks) and when I finally started putting effort in, I got better and better. Really impressed with myself. 100% does feel great. Caught it on cam aswell! RSA Nats from 17-19 May... CR is 12/13 in 49:49. CR2 is 9/9 40something. I am going to see if I can get to 13cubes before then... Wish me luck, won't be easy..

Ok 1 more encouraging stat lol
I've been trying lately to figure out a decent way to compute my MBLD global average. A couple ideas I had:

I took the mean of the bo3 for the last 8 sets of 3 mbld attempts I've done (all 60 cube attempts) and the mo8bo3 (lol) is 48.75 :)

48, 50, 52, 42, 44, 44, 58, 52
5 of 8 bo3s overWR yay

Though my comp this weekend only has 2 attempts so it's probably better to calculate the last 8 bo2s, mean for that is 48.25.

46, 42, 44, 44, 44, 58, 56, 52
3 of 8 bo2s overWR eh :/ at least the mean is good though

2/2 MBLD PB: 2:32.91

Happy with this, but I did 2-pass on the first cube to go safe, and I had a short pause (~3 seconds) trying recall a letter pair on cube 2, which together probably added ~15-20 seconds. This is definitely beatable sometime soon, and the road to sub 2 begins :)

Ok so my 3BLD PB mo3 is 20.58 from a couple weeks ago (10 algs, 10 algs, 8 algs) and I just got a 20.98 mo3 on all 10 alg scrambles lol

mean of 3: 20.98

Time List:
1. 21.91[10'/8] F' L2 D' L U L F2 B R D2 F2 R2 U2 R2 B D2 B2 R2 D2 L2 Fw Uw
2. 20.07[10'/8] R' D2 U2 B2 F R2 B' D2 F' U2 B2 L2 D L U L U R U' F2 R2 Rw
3. 20.96[10'/5'] D2 L2 B' F2 L2 F U2 F2 R2 D2 L2 B L' B F U' F' D' U' F' R2 Rw2 Uw2

I guess the plethora of flips/twists made memo pretty good, around 8 or low 8 for each solve :)

10/14 MBLD in 55 mins. My biggest attempt yet. Used Orozco which my accuracy is not VERY reliable with, but improving. I believe all the errors are exe errors. Maybe one memo error. Nats in less than two weeks. Will see if I can possibly get comfortable with 14 by then.
