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.

Time List:
1. 26.90[10/6] B R2 U D2 R' B L' B D' L' F2 U R2 L2 U R2 B2 R2 B2 Rw' Uw'
2. 47.65 L2 D2 F2 R' U R2 L2 B R' B2 D2 B2 R2 D2 L U2 L F2 R' D Fw'
3. 34.74 D2 L R D2 U2 R D2 R B2 D2 U2 F' U2 R D B L2 F D' F R

This should've been ~2:25 mo3. I paused for 25 seconds on the 3rd one trying to recall a letter pair that didn't exist (I had 1 center comm left but I thought I had 2)

mean of 3: 2:32.17

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

Yeah, I haven't really got into over an hour attempts, that could be good practice though. When I get my new cubes, I think I'll start trying >15 cubes or so and see how much time it takes.

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
