I'm just curious of your averages and how they changed through experience.
Please also list how your methods have changed...
I'm just wondering how my cubing experience is different than yours, and I'm also wondering how I progress compared to others :)

Here are mine:
Week 4: Avg 1:47 (PB: 1:20) (Learned how to solve a cube)
Week 5: Avg 1:25 (PB 1:15)
Week 6: Avg 1:15 (PB: 57s) (Learned Dan Brown Method)
Week 8: Avg: 1 min (PB: 57s)
Week 9: Avg: 53s (PB: 49s)
Week 10: Avg: 44s (PB: 35s) (Learned 4LLL)
Week 12: Avg 37s (PB: 35s) (Learned F2L)
Week 14: Avg 29s (PB: 25s)
Week 16: Avg 21s (PB: 17.27) (Learned Full PLL)

Well...here I am, Month 4 :)
I just learned full PLL, still trying to get fast a G and V perms because I'm slow at those.
My PLL recognition is also slow....so TIME TO PRACTICE!!!

Cube On!

Mine was similar to this, except more like months instead of weeks, because I have a terribly low amount of free time.
It took me like 3 months to learn OLL, and its been slow progression ever since.
But you're doing a great job, keep it up! Your improvement will probably slow down soon though, because you've basically learned everything. Although I would recommend full OLL ASAP. its really not that difficult:)

I can't remember what I used to average most of the time, but I have a couple of competitions I can refer to:

0 months: 2:00 // I'd been cubing a month before I solved my first cube, so you could count this as 1 month...
3 months: 1:20
7 months: 25
9 months: <20
12 months: 17
18 months: 14
22 months: 13.5
23 months: 20
24 months: 17
26.5 months (now): 14

Right here bruh
1st week: Learned to solve average 3 min
2nd week: Practice, Practice + lube average 2:30
3rd week : Cube-less ;-;
4th week : New cube average 1:40

This is aproximated, idk when I really started, may have been more than 4 weeks.

I'm still figuring out rotationless f2l but I can't do B/Bi but anyway your really good
Then do a method called "ZZ Method"
Its completely rotationless, all you do is L, U, and R moves to do F2L.
It requires you to do something called EO line before, thats the hard part.

If you want to do rotationless Fridrich, then use d moves....yes....lower case...
It works to not do rotationless....
I do about 2 to 3 rotations for my F2L...you don't have to completely cut out rotations to be fast.

Thats pretty good...It took me 4 weeks to learn how to even solve it :)

Wow 14! Nice
You've had WAAAYYY more experience than me tho.

Im probably not gonna go to competitions until I sub 15 avg.

2 months sub 20???
I barely go sub 20 at month 4 for me.

Nice job!

Thanks man!
I'm gonna perfect full PLL before I go full OLL.

I heard learning OLL is easier after PLL.

Y perm gave me a free OLL...lol
