Great! I think I'll have time for critique-ing (idk if thats a word) your solves tomorrow.

Work on fewer regrips, more controlled turning, and maybe learn more OLLs. Also, after these things, start working on good lookahead. Feliks has a really good tutorial on how to learn this on www.cubeskills.com
Make sure you have an account, then go into his blog and read the "lookahead framework section"

Thank you! I’m finishing Oll in the next week or two (13 cases left). I actually just discovered that tutorial yesterday. Lol. I‘ve been trying to start looking ahead but I’m not that good at it yet obviously. Should I work on being CN? I read Feliks’ blog about that too. I’m about %75 Dual CN. I always check white first but if it’s really bad or hard to plan (like in the first solve) I go for yellow.

The earlier you start CN the easier it gets.

Solve 1. Was bad. The rest were average

I have a critique for the 1st solve now: (edit: and the 2nd one)

L2 U' L F2 L2 D2 U F2 D2 F2 R2 B2 U' F' R U2 F2 D' B' R
Cross: Rw U’ Rw’ y2 U2 R’ F R L D2

Don’t rotate during cross, especially not y2’s. It seems like you only planned out the Rw U’ Rw’, so try to make sure to plan out the entire cross in advance. You took too long to decide white wasn't good enough and didn't have much time left. If you have spent that much time looking at the white cross, don't change anymore. For this case, you could hold green on top, yellow on front, do D Lw B’ (B’ would be done with the left ring finger) Rw U’ Rw’ D2. I would have also added an F’ in the middle as to create an F2L pair, and it would have been D Lw B’ F’ Rw U’ Rw’ D2 into the blue orange pair.

After you did the Rw U’ Rw’ y2, you decided to do a U2 into R’ F R L D2, but you could have just done F L F’ D2.

1st F2L pair: R U’ R’ y U R U’ R’

Nice solution, but please don’t regrip before the first R U’ R’.

2nd F2L pair: y F’ U’ F y U2 R U R’

You could have done this pair without rotations, like this: R’ U’ R U2 L U L’, but this would have been hard because it didn’t look like you could find the edge and therefore you rotated. After your first rotation for this pair, the solution could still have been better but it is not as intuitive: R’ U’ R2 U R2 U’ R

3rd F2L pair: U L’ U’ L

Nice and easy, finger tricks were good

4th F2L pair: y' U L U L’

Obvious solution, but just like on the first pair, don’t regrip when it is not necessary. I know this was right after a rotation, but you should have still done it from homegrip (so both thumbs on the front). Alternatively, you could have avoided the rotation by doing Fw R Fw’ but that might not be worth it for you.

After this it looks like you were checking if the F2L was solved before moving on to OLL, don’t do that, it cost you at least a second on this solve.

OLL was 2 look, not the worst thing not to know full OLL I guess, but definitely try to learn all of it when you feel ready for it. For this OLL I use a bit of an unpopular (I think) alg with a rotation: U2 F R U R’ U y' R’ U2 R’ F R F’. Despite the rotation it’s the fastest alg for me that I know for this case.

PLL was a nice 1 look, but make sure to know the AUF before you start the alg! That cost some time there.

Edit: Here is the 2nd solve:
D2 F' D2 F U2 R2 B' F2 U2 B' L' B D U' R' B' F' D2 R B2

Cross: Rw’ U’ F2 y x U R’ U x’ D2

After the first move, you don’t have to insert the white orange edge with U’ F2 which is very awkward, but you can do D’ L2, which even sets up the red and blue edge in the way they were in after the y rotation. But you did Rw’ U’ F2 y, and after that you can do F R’ F instead of x U R’ U x’, in which the first F is done with your right thumb, the second with your right index finger.

What I would have done for this cross (yellow top red front): U Rw’ U B’ Rw U L F’ (L’ U2 L) D’

1st F2L pair: R’ U R U’ R’ U’ R

Solution is good, but you don’t have to regrip for this, although for this case it is not the worst because it makes the moves flow nicer. Still, try to avoid regripping.

2nd F2L pair: U2 R U R’ U R U’ R’

Again, good solution, but for U2, you should get used to doing double flicks. And definitely don’t regrip here, it is super easy to do without and makes everything so much faster and smoother.

3rd F2L pair: y’ U’ R U2 R’ U2 R U’ R’

Since there is a corner in its slot for the next pair, you can take that out while pairing this pair up, like this: L U2 L’ y’ U R U’ R’, and you could even pair them up with L U2 L’ Lw’ U’ L U M. And as always, don’t regrip for triggers like, in this case, R U2 R’.

4th F2L pair: y’ R’ F R F’ R U R’

Don’t rotate for this: you can do L’ U L F’ L F L’, although I would probably have done L’ U L y’ U R U R’ U’ R U’ R’ to skip OLL. If you get the case from the angle you got after the y’, your solution isn’t bad (if you don’t regrip), but I do F’ R U R’ U’ R’ F R

OLL: U3 Fw’ L’ U’ L U Fw

Obviously don’t do U3, and for this OLL I’m pretty confident R’ U’ F’ U F R is a better option (for me this alg was very awkward at first but I got used to it and it’s pretty fast now), especially here because it cancels a move with the 4th F2L pair (that doesn’t matter if you take long to recognize, but still, it saves you the pre-AUF). And it’s also the alg Seung Beom Cho used on his former WR single, not that that matters but it’s fun to mention ig.

PLL nice J perm, but try to be able to recognize J perms from any angle, you’ll get it down with a little practice.

It's fun doing this, so please tell me if this is helpful, if it is I'll probably do the other solves as well.

Thank you so much! This is extremely helpful! Normally you have to pay for this level of critique. I’ll work on less regrips and try to learn all of the f2l and cross solutions that you mentioned. Also, the reason that I checked the F2l on the first solve at the end, was because I didn’t notice the third pair being solved. I was just taking the blue / orange edge out of the slot then rotated and solved it. I’ll learn that Oll too. The one that I use now is just the mirror of the righty version because it was easier to memorize. I’m currently finishing learning full Oll (12 cases left) I hope to be done with that in the next week.

PLL nice J perm, but try to be able to recognize J perms from any angle, you’ll get it down with a little practice.

It's fun doing this, so please tell me if this is helpful, if it is I'll probably do the other solves as well.
now i want a solve critique from you...

Just beat my pb single by 1.1 seconds! I was taking J perm’s (and others) advice to heart and slowed down and looked ahead. I‘m already averaging about the same as I did before with very rough speedy turning.

3.86 tps. Also, if you put it on about 3.6x speed that’s how fast my solve was.

New pb Ao12! I really want to get a sub 15 ao12 and maybe ao25 before Christmas so I’ll be sub 15 in 1 year. I just sat down and decided that and then did this in about 15 solves.

Merry Christmas all! Got a few great new cubes today! I’ll post everything later. A few questions though. What is scrambling orientation for the Ivy cube? And I got the Gan 13 Maglev today! But I haven’t been able to get any of the center caps off. 1-2 corners of the center will pull up but some of them are stuck down tight. Do I need to press in on the piece to open it?

Edit: solved both problems.
