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

So I was really hoping to improve my mbld WR a good bit this weekend, but given the circumstances (had to do my mbld attempt in the middle of a ballroom with like a hundred people watching and a bunch of noise and distractions), I'm pretty proud of getting a 51/54 in 59:33 :p

Now my rolling official multiBLD averages are

mo3: 47.33
ao5: 45.33
ao12: 41.60 :)

23.43 successful 3BLD ao50! And 21.18 ao12! Sooooo stoked, I've been barely missing sub-22 ao12s for a while now.
Also I think this is my 6th ever successful 3bld ao50! Previous one was 25.96

Edit: I'm even more proud of this ao12 than I immediately realized cus I actually did a lot of floating. The alg counts in the ao12 were:
avg of 12: 21.18

Time List:
1. (17.96): 10/8'->6', 10 to 9 algs
2. 21.81: 12/8, 10 algs
3. 23.05: 12->10/10->8, 11 to 9 algs
4. 20.80: 12/6, 9 algs
5. 22.48: 12/7, 10 algs
6. 19.96: 10'/6->4, 9->8 algs
7. 22.08: 12/5', 10 algs
8. (DNF(27.00)): idc lol
9. 20.94: 10->8/4'''', the 4 twists were 2 floating 2twists, so I call each 1.5 algs, so this is 10->9 algs
10. 22.25: 12/6', 10 algs
11. 18.82: 10/5, 8 algs
12. 19.60: 10/7, 9 algs

So basically it was 116 algs (counting the successes only) turned to 110 algs :)

Getting the hang of 5bld finally.
12:34[6:39] PB.

Fastest memo ever and exec is meh. Can't really do much about exec besides turning faster but that will cause issues so I'll hold out until I'm better at controlling my turning. X center memo was very short tho so it played a role but the + centers were average (and I usually suck at them) so I'm happy. Didn't record tho but whatever. First 6bld attempt on Weekly Comp starting next week, hope to compete each week until I get a success then try and compete often as possible. Using U2 r2 OP but yeah, I don't know 3 style and I have wanted to do 6bld for some while, figured out comms for D layer targets that work so yeah.

Learned the 3BLD method on Sunday. Yesterday, I tried very slowly on edge swaps and corner swaps separately, and it worked (took me almost an hour in total)! Today on my bus to work, I tried memorizing both at the same time but failed. On the way back I finally got it right! It just took me a long time (~20 mins mem + ~8 mins exec) to solve it but I am so happy! I think I will start to do more, and record myself!
