I just DNF'ed another 11cube mbld attempt. 4/11!! Like what even. I have no idea if it is exe or memo errors. Cause 2 cubes are off by 3C (I use OP so I didn't like do an inverse of a comm.) Another All the rest are mostly edge errors. One cube with 6E wrong?! So yeah Idk what I am doing incorrectly at all so idk what to focus on. stupid. Maybe just do small attempts and try to rectify this

When you do attempts, do known scrambles and keep the cubes in order so that you can go back and reapply the scramble if necessary to figure out what you did wrong. That practice can really help you fix systematic mistakes fast, and you can keep doing big attempts.

40.64 mo3 fail

I have several sub 40 fails but the DNF was off by 1 move (most likely) so this one really stings

39:04 2-7bld dnf by 2x on 6 and 2x on 7
40:11 2-7bld dnf right after by 3 centers on 4 lol

Somehow 2-7bld is like literally the most frustrating endeavor I've encountered in blindsolving, to this day. Idk why it's so hard to get 100% solved, shouldn't be thaaaat much more difficult than a 20/20 mbld, and I'm safetying memo pretty hard still

2-7 relay: killing BLDers dreams since 2009.
I remember this attempt by @Mike Hughey was one of the first BLD videos I saw, one of those that motivated me to learn BLD :)

This is the worst 3bld scramble ever. (or well that's how I feel right now after messing up the first alg of the solve and then giving up) It has about like 4 cycle breaks for edges. Corners suck aswell, try it.
