just some really bad 3x3 timed solves to get used to the cube.

it happened that I liked my 4x4 that much that I couldn't stop messing around with it. it's marvelous

What 4x4 is that?
Have a pretty budget one from last year, don’t really like 4x4 but then again it’s more likely to be the cube...

Meilong M 4x4x4... It's pretty good.

I can solve it with reduction, didn't time yet, just some chill solves... I forgot the oll parity alg though. pll parity is easy

edge pairing it's pretty fun

new 4x4 pb, pll parity

EDIT:

my 3x3 times got worse... gotta get used to the new cube
I also didn't practice at all in the last days haha

4x4 PB single, no OLL parity. Pll was diagonal swap pll parity, solved with sexy move conjugated pll parity
let's gooooooooooo

tryna learn S K O O B

I configured CStimer to have sessions for the events and methods I practice so I can keep track of my pbs better

just wanted to say that I have the goal to practice again. just outta time lately

Current goals:
• 3x3: Sub15 avg12 consistently and eventually avg100, sub10 single on camera
• 2x2: Sub5 avg100
• Other methods: Sub15 single and Sub20 avg5 with Petrus, Roux and ZZ
• 4x4: Sub2min avg5
• Learn skewb, maple leaves, square-1, 3bld
• Practice 3x3OH, Megaminx and 4x4 more consistently
• Drill f2l, oll and pll and learn better algs
• Learn more 3x3 and 2x2 alg sets
• 3x3: WV, COLL, ELL, more skip tricks
• 2x2: SS, Guimond, CLL, EG, TCLL if I have determination

Whats the maple leaves puzzle? Is it edge turning?

So it’s a skewb that turns on it’s edges when it’s halfway through a turn? I’m assuming there’s some jumbling involved as well.

no jumbling, when scrambled it looks like this:

just grabbed my 3x3 for some casual solves and got this time:

could be sub10 if I didn't hesitate during pll
sub10 possible!
gonna record next sessions

Some fast solves (for me) with low move count (for me)

pb avg5 with giiker = 12.98!!

scrambles were pretty easy, can any1 confirm if it uses random state?
sub13 though (as it is a smart cube, no pickup or drop too)
But I'm pretty happy with this result

first time 3x streak of 12s solves too

Today I took 2 hours to drill COLL and relearn the algs I forgot

So far I have T, H, U an Pi, next I'm gonna learn L
I got the algs on speedcubedb.com after finding what best suits my fingertricks

I'm open to suggestions.

Looking forward to practice more algs on days to come
After drilling all those algs and felling confident with all of them I'll learn sune/as cmlls for roux, drill L10P and then try to adapt to 2x2 cll. so i'll focus on recognition on all sides
