My third attempt at 65 cubes (done for weekly comp btw) was 57/65 1:00:18, also 57/65 in 1:00:00 :D (DNFed the one cube I attempted over the hour)

37:55 memo, absolutely insane for me, everything went soooo smoothly and I was very well concentrated nearly the whole time

Super happy with this. Huge improvement from the first two attempts which were both DNF lol. I think I could maybe get a PB on 65 cubes possibly before worlds :)
70 sub-hour by the end of this year for sure

EDIT: OMG WAT

i just realized that I accidentally put a solved cube in the DNF pack when sorting them after the attempt lol

this was actually 58/65 1:00:00!!! wtf
that's like the inverse of when i miss a hidden DNF and find it an hour later lol

Broke my Multi PB. 12/13 in 50:23[33:16]
Memo was bad, I kept forgetting the first few cubes' memo, partially. I think this could've been sub 45 overall if I focused properly. Also throughout the whole attempt I just felt I was failing horribly. I was certain I had messed up like 2 cubes in execution. So the cube I actually DNF'd (cube 12) was actually just off by one corner letter and then parity, which I knew but I felt so hopeless at the time that I just didn't care enough to try and do that last bit. So I was very disappointed to see that I had so nearly gone under the CR. If I had just done that last bit I would've beat the 11 point-CR by getting 13 points. Or if I had just gone 40 seconds faster, which is easily possible if I didn't screw up memo, I would've beat the time of the 12/13 official CR which is 49:49.
Overall: I was happy with breaking my PB by 2 points but very disappointed by the stupid, useless error I made, and that the memo was just gross. Think this is definitely proof that my hard work is paying off, and that I am getting somewhere with Multi-BLD. Curious to see how my 15 cube attempt of tomorrow will go.

Okay, me again. Did a 15 multi attempt. 12/15 in 42:53[28:04]
Almost 8 minutes faster than yesterday's attempt and I had 2 more cubes this time. It's super surprising.
1:52/cube avg memo
59/cube avg exec
making it 2:51/cube overall. Which is not actually all that bad considering my 3bld avg is 1:35-1:40.
The Errors:
Cube 1: Probably nerves, some exec error; 3e
Cube 9: Traced FR-LU but memo'd FL-LU (or in my scheme: H-L instead of F-L); 3e
Cube 11: O was solved but somehow I memo'd NO instead of NM, kinda realised it in exec but thought I was mistaken so I went with NO;3e
Overall: I am happy that it was so insanely fast, and that the accuracy wasn't affected by it. 3 DNF's is not too bad but I know I can do better soon. Judging by the time I should manage 18 cubes sub-hour without too much of an effort, maybe I'll try that in 2 or 3 days.

Heyo, me again. New PB, think I'm getting the hang of multi-BLD now.
15/16 in 54:35[36:24]
Nice leap from 12/13
The time I am reasonably happy with, think it could've been a bit faster (did the attempt at 7am after 6 hours of sleep, lol)
Exec speed is decent.
Error: Memo'd a sticker on my buffer, haha, actually executed that letter pair as edges then and realised that I'm doing corners and it's impossible to have that letter, think I guess correctly but messed up something else.
Think I'll do a lower attempt like 12 and then try sub hour 18 cubes Sunday.
Getting 10 more MF3RS'1 from Cubezz in about a month or so, the 15 I have aren't enough anymore :p
