This is the most ridiculous solve I've ever got.

PB single: my first sub-8: 6.51

**woaj**

R U2 R B2 D F U' B' L' D2 F2 U2 R U2 R' F2 B2 R2 F2 D


y2 // inspection
F' R' D R2 F2 D' // cross
U2 L U' L' // 1st pair
y' R' U R // 2nd pair
U L U L' // 3rd pair
U' R U' R' // 4th pair
U R' F' r U' r' F2 R U // OLL


30STM / 6.51sec =4.61TPS


[view at CubeDB.net]( https://cubedb.net/?puzzle=3&title=...-_r-_F2_R_U_//_OLL&stage=pll&crosscolor=white )

How is it even possible?? 4 free pairs and PLL skip 😐
The TPS is bad but I think I would have messed up the solve going faster.
And it's funny because I used to think that having a PB of 7 seconds was ugly, and I actually skipped 7 seconds, going from 8.19 to 6.51 🤣

noob my pb is faster than your pb Hey, congrats, man!
Sorry, don't take it too personally, man. that is a good solution. My PB had a LL skip, so I wouldn't consider it worthy compared to yours.

Oh finally I have time to write this post. It's been a long week, with 3 math national finals (in teams) in just 4 days. Sadly, the organisers of one of the finals had a wrong answer to a problem, so when I gave the correct answer they counted it as a wrong answer. So my team and I spent time working to that problem and I was a bit disappointed because I had given two wrong answers (the second one was actually correct) to that problem. That question was actually our jolly problem (which means it was worth double the points for our team) so even though we placed ninth, I think we had the potential to win the final, if they had the right solution, especially because we were first in the first day (yeah the finals were divided in two days).

It's May, so it's difficult to find the time to cube and progress will obviously be slower, but not absent:

I'm probably not going to get a sub-10 ao100 before the end of this school year (June 4th here), which was my ambitious goal, since becoming sub-10 in 8 months is quite difficult. I'm definitely going to get sub-10 before 9 months from when I started cubing, especially because I want to grind 3BLD in summer, not 3x3.

Weekly update!
3x3 is going well again, I got several PBs:
9.14 mo3
9.54 ao5
10.27 ao12
10.55 ao25
10.72 ao50
10.77 ao100
I'm going to re-lube my cube so I'll be even faster (hopefully)

I started doing 4x4 again and even though I haven't done so many solves yet, I'm now averaging 1:10, which is 10 seconds faster than what I used to average. In addition I got my first sub-1 (I think): 57.90
My solves are really bad in terms of efficiency so I'd better learn L2C and 3-2-3 edge pairing (I already know I'm not going to do it)

I'm closer than ever to sub-30 OH: 29.57 ao12 and 30.54 ao25 (small averages because I rarely do it now, despite it being quite enjoyable)

Shock

5.43 3x3 single
Due to a very unfortunate accident, I don't have the scramble, not anymore. I accidentally deleted the solve from cstimer when I was making sure that it wasn't a miss-scramble (it wasn't, luckily). I clicked on "previous scramble" but it gave me a 2x2, which is really strange. It looks like csTimer doesn't want to cooperate 😞.
Three cross pieces were already solved, so the cross was 2 moves. It set up a free pair in the back, then I did another easy pair in the back (F2L 19). Then two free pairs. OLL skip and A perm (probably Ab but I'm not sure)

It's obvious that I also got a MO3 PB with that single:

8.51 mo3

1. 9.71 U D' F U' L U' L' F' L' U2 F2 R U2 B2 R F2 L2 B2 D2 L
2. 5.43 L F U2 D L' F B' R' U' D2 F L2 D2 L2 U2 B2 L2 F' U2 R2 U2
3. 10.40 D2 L2 D' R2 F2 U' F2 U2 B2 L' B U2 F D' F D' U' L2

The scramble for the 5.43 is not that one, because I just entered the time again

That happens when if your last solve was a 2x2 solve. For example, today I was doing some 2x2 when I suddenly wanted to do some 3x3. I switched the session, and then after I did a solve, I clicked last scramble, and it showed up the 2x2 scramble. If your last solve wasn't a 2x2, then I don't know why that happened.

Ok, time to update this thread, I was too lazy to do it.
I was able to activate 3x3 God mode, thus I got PBs:

ao50 is not sub-10 yet: 10.17

My ao100 PB is now 10.28 and I'm averaging 10.3 approximately. At this point I know I'll be sub-10 soon, therefore I just need to do solves. I won't be learning new alg-sets/techniques because that would slow down my improvement rate, even though I am perfectly aware of the fact that learning those things would be beneficial. However, I will when my global average is sub-10. My goal was to get sub-10 extremely quickly: I'm at exactly 8 months of cubing and I'm almost done. When I'm sub-10, I'll focus on fixing bad habits and becoming CN, but I'll focus mostly on 3BLD in summer (hopefully I'll be sub-9 on 3x3 when school starts again. I don't have goals for 3BLD because I don't know how fast I'll improve: my 3x3 progression has been incredibly fast but I don't know if the same will happen with 3BLD)

However, my ao100 PB is not sub-10 yet (10.05) 🐭, but I'm averaging 10.0-10.1 so I should be getting the sub-10 ao100 in a week at most 🦎.
Also, I'm getting 7s more frequently now 🐙

Guys...

I DID IT !!

Sub-10 ao100: 9.94
10.78, 9.98, 10.38, 10.57, 10.22, 9.95, 9.85, 10.86, 9.95, 10.24, 9.45, 11.73, 10.53, 8.75, 10.19, 9.02, 11.09, 9.45, 10.44, 10.38, 9.84, 9.68, 9.53, 8.82, 10.00, 9.83, 9.97, 10.54, 10.06, 10.55, (11.83), 8.81, 10.11, 9.47, 9.50, 11.13, 8.89, 9.89, 9.16, 10.64, 10.44, 9.29, 9.65, 9.42, 10.45, 11.14, 10.79, (8.32), 9.06, 9.51, 8.54, 9.34, 10.43, (12.94), (8.33), 9.30, 9.83, 9.75, (12.83), 9.66, 9.96, 8.83, 8.66, 10.27, 9.60, 9.40, 9.30, 10.63, (12.88), 9.97, 11.01, 9.66, 11.23, 10.15, 8.69, 10.41, 8.52, 9.59, 10.47, 9.41, 9.93, 11.24, (7.80), 9.74, 10.73, 9.51, 10.85, (13.00), 11.35, 9.55, 9.63, 9.95, 10.24, 10.03, (8.31), 9.42, (8.40), 9.45, 9.74, 10.49
(thank you @Swagrid, I didn't know I could remove the scrambles without deleting them one by one)

I kept grinding after getting the 9.99 ao100 but I couldn't do many more solves (life exists) therefore my ao200 isn't sub-10 yet even though today's session mean was sub-10.

How do you remove the scrambles I'm also curious

Finally a new PB average of 5!

8.72 ao5
Times: 8.61, 8.96, (10.28), 8.60, (8.24)
That's probably my first average with 3 counting 8s.

Global average: I'm barely sub-10: I got my ao100 PB down to 9.88 and I managed to get my ao200 under 10 seconds as well. With that taken into account, I would call myself sub-10 (because I don't remember my name 😞).

It's insane that I got sub-10 after just 8 months and a half of speedcubing, so I went over my progress (thank you @bulkocuber for creating this progression thread 🙃) and here's a recap with all the time barriers I've broken and when:
Sub-20: Dec 30, 2021 After 3 months of cubing
Sub-19: Jan 4, 2022 5 days after becoming sub-20 LOL
Sub-18: Jan 8, 2022 Only 4 days this time
Sub-17: Jan 10, 2022 Ok this may look sus but I had just lubed the cube for the first time
Sub-16: Jan 19, 2022 At this point I started learning full OLL
Sub-15: Jan 30, 2022 One month to go from sub-20 to sub-15 wow
Sub-14: Feb 27, 2022 Oh How did my progress slow down so much?
Sub-13: Mar 15, 2022 I remember thatit felt so good to avg 12
Sub-12: Apr 11, 2022 Another important barrier; at this point I became very consistent
Sub-11: May 17, 2022 Do I still need to write the year??
Sub-10: Today, Jun 13 WOW, just wow. After 8 months and a half

It definitely felt a lot less than 8 months, thank you to all of you for being a fantastic community 🦆Just joking obviously there are also 🐧🦦🐟 and whatever you want NO, HUMANS DO NOT EXIST :mad:



Now, what comes next? What will I do? Here's what I hope to achieve this summer:
● Become CN on 3x3. I know it will be difficult and I don't even think it's fully worth it, but it seems fun and also will make me more consistent since I won't have to deal with bad crosses. We'll see how much it will take me to become color neutral (hopefully 1-2 to get all the other colors almost as fast as white)
● Learn 2-sided PLL recognition. It shouldn't be difficult but I want to improve my last layer because at the moment it is still not as good as you would expect from a sub-10 solver. However, I think that this might be beneficial because it means that I don't rely much on PLL patterns specific to white cross.
● Learn TUL ZBLL. I've already said that in my opinion COLL is not really worth it, in fact I'm more interested in learning ZBLL: T, U, L sets are the best ones so I'll try to learn those. (I have no clue how long it will take me actually)
● Grind 3BLD. I don't need to say much about this goal, 3 BLD is the coolest event.
