How can you have a 5 but not a 4 BLD success
@joshsailscga is right in regards to me DNFing all 3 4x4 BLD attempts. The competition had both 4 and 5 BLD, so I just messed up 4x4 BLD. But that should be a little easier to get eventually then 5x5 BLD. I also almost had a 4x4 BLD success, except I mixed 1 letter pair up on wings, and forgot to do the corner parity alg.

It wasn't the magnets. When I took it apart, there was a piece that fell off of the front. I then reglued it, but because you could feel the difference between the small chipped piece and the rest, it was illegal. Its not illegal if its on the side, but it is if its on the face. I know of 2 other people that had the same problem.

Sorry to hear about that, but hopefully next time that does not happen.

3BLD: mean triple DNF, last solve was a safety but off by 3 edges
4BLD: success, sub-DRL to get nemesis free again 2nd attempt off by 2 centers and 3 wings

Even though I failed most of my goals, I still had a really fun time at the comp. Doing well in other events was nice.

Have a comp in 18 days and I am kind of getting good at 6x6, Just bought the shadow and in one week my average dropped from 3:20 to 2:50, so I hope I can at least be sub 2:35 until next comp to get 4th at National Ranking, I don't know if it is doable but I will try to do it.

From the last time I posted here:

Learn one-look last bar for 6×6×6. ← learnt the near and far sets at some point, but I keep forgetting and mixing them up
Learn all the diag-CP ZBLL cases. ← finished learning most of diag-T and some diag-S/AS algs I guess
Become sub-15 global for 3×3×3, sub-50 global for 4×4×4. ← yes and sorta
Become colour neutral too, I guess. ← soon(tm)
Do more God's number upper bound computations. (The current megaminx bound is like 190 moves from five years ago; I'd bet at even odds that I can drop it to 120 or lower unless lolben beats me to it. This looks like really, really low-hanging fruit.) ← not yet
Code a better big cube solver. ← yes!!
And more goals for the upcoming comp (FMC SEA):
- wake up on time yes
- find the place on time sorta
- 28 single / 29 mean not even a sub-30 single this time, rip
- podium (tfw I'm not even among top 3 seeds) lol sixth

e: at least I'll still have NR2 single/mean for a while longer I guess
