Just did a MBLD attempt, the total result was pretty disappointing (felt like it could have been PB before taking my blindfold off), but the memo was suuuuper good for me and really consistent, I'm really proud of how well I focused throughout this. So I'm gonna document the splits here:

memo+review 1-8: 2:44
memo+review 9-16: 2:41
review 1-16: 2:06
memo+review 17-24: 2:55
memo+review 25-32: 2:53
review 17-32: 2:11 (15:30 for 1-32 pass :))
review 1-32: 4:48 (20:18 1-32 4pass!! PB by like a minute i think)
memo+review 33-40: 2:58
memo+review 41-48: 2:50
review 33-48: 2:12
memo+review 49-64: 6:20
memo 65: 0:14

Proud of pretty much every split here

The mo6 for all the 8 pack memo+reviews was 2:50 (I think this is my first time ever doing all of the 8 pack memo+reviews sub-3:00), and I averaged 8.33 seconds/cube for each individual review in the bulk reviews (i.e. 1-16, 17-32, 1-32, 33-48)

And then a 14 second 3bld memo to boot! It's obvious pretty insignificant but I usually do like 20 seconds for 3bld, so I'm happy about that

16:00.00 official 4bld success. Really slow because it was my last attempt and I went safe.
9/9 , 11/13, 11/13 official multis.
Still missing a 5bld success for all events.

Okay first my accomplishment
I solved a 2x2 successfully exactly one week ago on Wednesday, September the 18th around 7 PM in 5:17.30
with this scramble D2 B' U2 F L2 U2 F R2 D2 R2 D2 B2 R' D2 R B' F L' F L
and this memo M KN UD K.

Now, I need your help
I have a question: How in the world do you guys make up words for letter pairs like EO or KQ
I just started practicing again today, but now only edges. How I remember EO: "omgekeerde oe" (it's Dutch, I speak and think in Dutch, but that is beside the point. It's a terrible way to remember it btw.)
How in the world do you guys remember letter pairs that can't possibly form a normal word/name? Please help? I wanna have my first official 3BLD solve too.

Another form of memo is called Audio, which is usually used for short term memory like with Edges on 3BLD. Just try to make sounds with the letter pairs.

Roman made this awesome database for letter pairs. It has Dutch in it, but unfortunately not many pairs have words because this is a community thing and I guess not enough people speak Dutch. Worth checking out though.

3rd ever ao12 on 3bld. First one was 1:12.54 from few days ago. then a 1:17 this morning and a whole new 1:12.09 just now whilst racing with my friend. Quite happy as this ao12 is heaps faster than our official NR single and I am looking forward to smashing it next month. My accuracy is also quite decent nowadays. So HOPEFULLY I can get a mean aswell, anything under 2:04 will then be the new AfR mean but that's IF I can get a mean. Excited to see if I can get an ao25 soon

Hoi! I am Dutch as well. For 2 BLD you only need to memorise 7 letters at most, which is pretty easy to do without making words with the letters, IMO. I can do 2x2x2 in under a minute, because I turn slowly. Otherwise, if I had higher TPS I am sure I could do it in 30 seconds or less.

If you'd like to chat about it some more, feel free to ping me on the speedsolving.com discord server. I'm AbsoRuud there too.

Also, this site has a LOT of info about letter pairs: https://bestsiteever.ru/colpi/ and this one https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Fi4xgUz5b23UXMlHq7Tt5C8Ak8-U3XdbeQ9Anw68BQc/edit#gid=0

And also. The EO is a famous Dutch tv network. De evangelische omroep. They are or were a highly religious network, not sure if they're still around. I'd remember it that way, or I would use the abbreviation "en omstreken" for EO.

But long story short: I don't make words for letters with 2 BLD. It takes longer than it's worth.

@CuberStache Did you learn all of them or is this your own intuitive algs that you just came up when faced with your letterpair while recalling?
I learned all of them. I did that whole coming up with my own algs thing a while ago and it was a disaster; I ended up not improving very much, switching back to OP/M2 for a good official mean, and quitting BLD for a while. So I guess it technically isn't my first success with 3-style corners but my first doing it the right way.
