I am ok at 3x3 and 2x2 (average sub-13 and sub-5 respectively) but not that great at other events (sub 1:30 at 4x4, sub-50 OH, sub-30 at pyraminx lol). I got into cubing in 2015 after watching Colorful Pockets worst judge ever (very funny videos but the fourth one was cringe looking back). My mains are the GTS2M (which will forever be my baby), the Lingpo, and the Aosu WRM. 2x2 through 4x4 are the only events that I care about. I use CFOP, Yau, and whatever I feel like for 2x2 (usually I use LBL or Ortega, LBL is underrated and when done right is surprisingly fast). My only real goal is to not be bad at rubic. And btw Moyu is my favorite cube company if you didn't notice.

Welcome! It’s Rubik’s Cube by the way, but we normally just say cube :)
I think I might need to make a new derubiksisation video. Rubik's is a terrible company that make terrible cubes, as speedcubers we should not refer to them as Rubik's cubes especially when talking to a non cuber (if they don't understand then literally just show then a speedcube)

Are you going to be part of or are you a part of the moyu cult?

Rubik is the guy who invented it, to not call it a Rubik’s cube would be to discredit him.

I agree. While they don’t make the best cubes I do I fact think we owe the pleasure of solving to our dear Hungarian friend Erno Rubik. And when speaking to non-cubing friends is when I feel it IS NECESSARY to say “Rubik’s cube,” a common citizen wont Know what a MF3RS is but everyone under the sun can picture a Rubik’s cube.

All things aside welcome to the forum! It looks like you have some pretty respectable times already.
