Hello everyone
This will be my progression thread. My goals at the moment are 3x3 sub-15, current PB ao5 16.45s and single 12.93s. The other main goal is 4x4 sub-1, current PB ao5 1:11.01 and single 56.63. I am thankfull of every tip you can give me. Algs I am learning full OLL at the moment and I know full PLL.
Sometimes I will also post FMC as this is also one of my favorite events but I won't focus on that here.
Have fun following my progress and thanks for the helpful comments I can await

New PB
In the warm up for this weeks Competition I hit a new 3x3 single PB of 12.71 with a crazy 6 move X-Cross.
In the weekly comp I hit a average of 18.70 on 3x3 and 1:15.88 on 4x4 with single bests of 17.29 and 1:10.72.
Not the best result in 4x4 but solid in 3x3.
Short question, which OLL set should I learn next I have W, Fish, Dot, Akward and l-Shapes left?

PS: Just after making the post I hit a 12.57. I also forgot the scrambles so here they are:
12.71: D L R2 U L2 U' L2 U' B2 R2 B2 L2 U2 F U B L2 D' L F2
12.57: F' U' F2 L2 D2 F' U2 L' U F2 D' F2 U B2 D' B2 R2 D2 L2 U2

Nice PBs
I would recommend learning Fish first, and W shapes after. The fish cases are pretty fast and not that hard to learn, and the Ws are pretty similar to cross.

Fish (cases are easy to recognise and fast), then probably just choose between W / awkward / I, then do dots (but get good algs for them).
It doesn't really matter too much what order you do them in, but this is roughly the order I learned these sets because I wanted to save the hardest for last (I shapes particularly I found hard to memo and for dots there are 8 cases).

I have learned the W cases and the awkwards, and also learned fish and l but have problems memorizing them. So there is still much room to pass in the meantime.
