Just tried my first 7BLD -- catastrophic DNF lol. I have four centers off...never a good sign. There were a couple times in there during some center comms where I wasn't sure if I sliced the correct layer or not, I'm guessing that's what caused the snowball effect. I have about half of the obliques, outer x-centers and wings solved but that's it.

EDIT: Oh yeah and the time was 47:09.82[26:13.19]. Feels really slow, memo could have been a lot better. I think it'll definitely be sub-40 when I get my first success.

Did a little 3BLD, this seems to be how practice is going for me, which is bad.

very easy scramble if you want to try
...2 edges
That's the 2nd easy scramble that I've completely messed up today. The first had a 1x2x3 block solved.

Edit: make that 3. Just tried @FastCubeMaster 's scramble above and it ended up more scrambled than when I started. Quick for me though ☺

First multi at 13 cubes --> total mess

Okay, I forgot that my Sulong's edge pieces are broken, and of course they fell apart while solving. I kinda lost all my concentration, and in TWO cubes I did parity alg twice, so in the end again even though I had done it in the middle. Two more cubes I did other mistakes. 8/13 in 55 minutes

14:30.52 [6:17.83] 5BLD DNF

off by 1 missed slice move during wings

I can't explain how this happened the scramble wasn't that good somehow, but I just almost pb'ed by over a minute. Maybe I should start actually practicing 5BLD.

The scramble was from the weekly comp
