Official 4bld DNFs
1. 100% correct except I didn't memo that LDF was twisted :mad:
2. idk what happened but it was super screwed up
3. 2 centers solved and 1 bar already solved was the scramble so I figured if I was getting a success this was it. I was off by 4 wings.

DNFed a 5:48.05[2:48.94] 5bld single :(

DNF by 5 xcenters because I did a comm backwards and omitted another comm. Fairly lucky scramble, number of targets:

xcenters: 18 (included omitted comm)
+centers: 17
wings: 9 comms + setup to parity alg for a 2 swap out side of buffer, so really 21 targets
midges: 12
corners: 8+twist

Reconstructed it for funsies, apparently I had 2.34 tps which actually seems pretty good for 5bld lol

Soooo 5BLD home success still yet to come. How is this even possible :p
You have to be in pretty rare company. Having a 5BLD in competition (success in your first and only attempt!) but never succeeding at home is pretty hilariously amazing!

I have this feeling you're going to suddenly get one, and then just get one after another after another. And probably become pretty good at it pretty quickly. So persevere!

Little practice session, mostly 30-45s solves, then this silly scramble, utter garbo:

25.09 - L2 D2 R2 B L2 F' U2 R2 F2 D2 F2 D' B L2 U' L U B' D' F'

6 algs
D' R U' R' D2 R U R' D' // [D': [R U' R', D2] alright
[R: [U2, L D2 L']] // garbo
[y': [U', R' D R]] // garbo
M' U' R' U M2 U' R U M' // good
[D: [M', U R2 U']] // garbo
M' U' M U' M' U' M U' // good
fyi I lost the original scramble, so recreated it on CubeExplorer

26:58.33[14:59.14] 7bld DNF by 3 obliques and 3 inner x-centers. Would have been unofficial NAR :(
Pretty proud of that 11:59.19 execution time though, not gonna lie lol. Just barely slower than the exec on Tom's former UWR

Edit: Had to try one more. DNFed cus i forgot to undo a 3L' setup move for an inner wing comm. Time was 26:15.02[14:40.52], this time exec was sub-Tom's former UWR heeheehee
