Why not, but first I'll go over where I was when joining this forum and where I am now

When I joined this forum (late Sept 2021): PB 28, probably averaged 35-40, used a Rubik's brand I'm really glad I don't need anymore, did OH sometimes and averaged about 2:00, had been cubing 3 weeks

Now: PB 11.36, very close to sub-20 global average, main QiYi MS. Learned full OLL and PLL. Been to a few comps now, somehow got an official 16.77 average, and do more than just 3x3 and OH (which I lowered my global average to about 40-45 and have an official 37 ao5). Been doing megaminx the past week and average 2:15 with a PB of 1:39. Do 2x2, 4x4, 5x5, pyra and skewb occasionally.

Think I went over everything. Gonna update every Saturday (if I don't forget).
wow this thread was posted on my birthday 🥳

Practicing for Battle of Waterloo on Saturday, got a new 3BLD PB with M2 (1:43.14) and I'm working on 2x2 and skewb. I've heard it's not a good idea to learn algs week of a comp but I need to finish CLL lol, been done with everything except U for a week, and I need to work on my T set recog. Skewb is just grind solves I guess. I want to practice BLD to have a better chance of podiuming but I don't have much motivation tbh. 3x3 and pyra are just kinda... nothing.

Ok, so I might switch to ZZ. No, I did not steal this from Timona, because I made a ZZ session before I saw Timona's post. And I gotta say, I love it. EO is a bit frustrating, and the reason I didn't enjoy it when I first learned it about 6 months ago, but yeah. I already have an 11.16 single (a time I rarely get with CFOP) and 16.01 ao5. I might actually switch to it permanently (and I don't need y'all trying to convince me otherwise, it won't work). I'm probably going to use it first round for my comp on Saturday (if it doesn't go against regulation 2k6's "intentionally poor result"). And yeah. I'm also considering becoming an all rounder a bit earlier than I planned to, and I might quit OH because I hate it. That's all for now, folks. Thanks for coming to my DYNATalk.

Ok, so I might switch to ZZ. No, I did not steal this from Timona, because I made a ZZ session before I saw Timona's post. And I gotta say, I love it. EO is a bit frustrating, and the reason I didn't enjoy it when I first learned it about 6 months ago, but yeah. I already have an 11.16 single (a time I rarely get with CFOP) and 16.01 ao5. I might actually switch to it permanently (and I don't need y'all trying to convince me otherwise, it won't work). I'm probably going to use it first round for my comp on Saturday (if it doesn't go against regulation 2k6's "intentionally poor result"). And yeah. I'm also considering becoming an all rounder a bit earlier than I planned to, and I might quit OH because I hate it. That's all for now, folks. Thanks for coming to my DYNATalk.
I think it doesn't go against 2k6, because it's not intentionally poor; only the fact that you switched methods makes it worse as a result. You're still trying to do the exact same as before, getting good solves and maybe breaking PRs, and I don't see how that could be misinterpreted.

It makes me really happy that people have been switching to ZZ lately, I always felt that the method diversity was very low but people seem to be using more methods lately and I think it's very good for the community. The community seems to be very pro EO cross lately, and while I think it has great potential, don't completely write off vanilla ZZ. Try different things and see what works best for you, it doesn't matter what most other people think as long as you're enjoying it and are satisfied with your times. Of course, I'm not suggesting that you blindly follow what I'm saying either, just remember that you're allowed to make your own decisions.

People say that cause it is way more ergonomic for two handed solving. Almost better in every scenario. There is an argument for eo arrow with the cross piece being left out of your dominate hand so you have a mix of ergo and blocks
