Congrats for Daniel Wallin for completing his multibld-mean today and get the 16th with an Ao5 or Mo3 in all actual official events!
(Ao5 or Mo3 including the blindfold accomplishments in 4bld, 5bld and multi and therefore posted here)
(He and Walker Welch are the only one to get all except multi in one competition!)

Now we have:

Cool thing that I noticed yesterday:

Sukant Koul got true perfect accuracy in all blind events at a competition yesterday! 1 round of 3bld, 1 round of 4bld, 1 round of 5bld, and 1 mbld attempt, and didn't do a single DNF.

39.29 3bld mo3
4:16.42 4bld mo3
12:47.00 5bld mo3
29/29 53:02 mbld

I guess there could be a bit cooler of a "true perfect accuracy" performance if there were 3 mbld attempts, but someone could also just try 2 cubes for each mbld attempt lol.

This is super impressive regardless. Probably has been pulled off less than 10 times in WCA history, I would guess.

Probably a lot less than 10 times. Of all the results currently up on the WCA site (this one isn't yet), there are still only 76 5bld mo3 results ever. And getting n/n multi is also rather rare. I would not be surprised if this is the first time it was ever done; I couldn't find any examples of it being done in the top half of the 5bld mo3 solvers. However, Walker Welch did manage perfection in all but his second multiBLD attempt at Cubing USA Nationals 2019 (multiBLD attempts were 12/12, 10/13).

I just wanted to share my first (sort of) 3BLD mean:

Time List:
1. (DNF(5:36.76)[buffer and target corner twisted]) @2020-02-07 19:39:54
2. 4:28.80 @2020-02-07 19:47:12
3. (3:19.43) @2020-02-08 20:59:01
4. 3:35.90 @2020-02-08 21:03:56
5. DNF(2:43.30)[2 flipped edges, including buffer :-(] @2020-02-08 21:11:22

PB single is 3:16.04, so the last one is especially disappointing.

Yay finally back into 5BLD with a sub10 after switching to Ufr wings last year. Changed the memo order to Corners, +, Wings, Midges, X.
Exec: X, Midges, Corners, + and Wings.

after an incredibly unsuccessful first 6BLD attempt ever last night (1:00:10.53 DNF, in which I somehow forgot to memo x-centers, among other issues), I decided to do some more BLD until 4AM because I hate myself. it ended up working out though, and I broke my 4BLD single, mo3, and ao5 all by over a minute, and got a new 3BLD PB single.

I guess I was just really in the zone. I was getting sub-2 memos on 4BLD, which never happens for me. the single was pretty lucky, it had a short execution and memorable letter pairs. the 3BLD single wasn't super lucky, I was just hyped from the 4BLD times and memorized fast. it started in my orientation as well, which probably gave me PB since I only beat my old one by 0.81.

Probably should’ve waited, but couldn’t resist... I learnt the basics back in September, but stopped doing BLD... Ima be the guy who learns full 3 style in 1 day then realises it’s memo and execution speed that matters lol.

Edit: By the way I got a 3RD SUCCESS yesterday, wtf.
