Just saying, dropping from 8.4 to 7.7 in a week is borderline impossible
not really. a lot of people have improved at speeds never thought possible before
i believe what made the difference was learning to plan the first pair in inspection. that got rid of like the 0.5 second pause after cross

Eh, you are right. Feliks did break the second barriers easily within months. But @PiKeeper is right: when you are faster, it is harder to improve. I am not calling cap, but it doesn't seem possible. Maybe you are just in the zone.
Either way, fake or not, you do improve a lot, so congrats to that.

How did you get sub 9 without cross+1?
Also, how did you become great at it in a week?
And why don't your comp time match your irl solves?
Could you give us an ao12 just to clear this up?

1. if you have good look ahead sub 9 without cross +1 is not actually too hard.
2. cross plus one does not actually take to long to master, only around a week
3. nerves, but its getting better in the first comp this year i averaged 13 ,the next one only 1 week later it was 11, next comp was 10
4. i will try to get one here soon

good ao5 followed by a trash ao5

How CN are you? White only? Dual? Full?
That would affect how long this takes. If you're at least dual but up to full CN I can totally see it taking a week.
i was only white and yellow, but over the past month i practiced red and orange and now i can do all colors except b/g
being CN helps with cross+1 a lot, which probably helped me learn cross+1 in a week

You guys are stressing this issue too much. Cheating times doesn't harm you, it harms the cheater. If they claim they're improving and they're not, then they're the one losing something, which is the actual improvement, not you. If he claims he's sub-10 or sub-8 or whatever, and he goes to a comp and performs slightly below that, then so be it.

Exactly, he's already told us that he cheated 5x5, it would be pretty stupid to also cheat 3x3. Everyone is just more skeptical of coincidences or rare occurrences than before.

Take a look at the WR for each second barrier and report back how long it took to break them, each gap from second to second.
I would argue this is irrelevant. However, I haven't gotten an official average over 10 seconds since I averaged mid-9. Gurshan has gotten exclusively averages over 10 seconds and claims to now be sub8.

Personally I don't see what you guys are calling him out for.
After that incident with the 5x5 times, it would be pretty dumb to do the same thing again with 3x3 unless gsingh wants to be kicked out of the forums (which of course he doesn't want to). And I don't see why anyone sane would press the space bar again and again just for some fake times. Even if he did fake these times, what's in it for you to point it out? I'm believing him for this time.

I don't know why anyone would fake times. With that said, most if not all of the evidence stacks up against him, and we have nothing to trust beside his word. And, given the past incident with the 5x5 times, I'm going to need something more than his word to believe it.

You know you can just say you broke the world record right?
i have a question for you: why are you wasting your time arguing with some random person on the internet instead of doing something like practicing so you can actually improve yourself and stop just going around claiming people are faking solves(probably out of jealousy)?

anyway, i got a 3x3 pb single

@cuberswoop , before you start going on with your "oh we have caught you you're stealing scrambles your times are fake" nonsense, i know the scramble is from brian sun's video. just like with jperms scramble, i did the solve BEFORE watching the reconstruction, so im counting it as a pb
