I am basically Sub-12. It just varies on some days. I know full 2LLL, Full COLL, almost Full ELL (All but about 6 cases), some ZBLL, some OLLCP, some WV and VLS, etc. The 3 year anniversary of when I finally finished learning how to solve the cube was about a week ago (week ago [lol I know the meme is dead]). The 4 year anniversary of when I got my first cube was this past Wednesday.

Does anyone know if there is a difference between sub-x and having an average? Say if I said I was sub 10 seconds, which im not, would that mean my average is below 10 seconds? or above and around 10 seconds?

Also, why has their a difference between stackmat times and computer times?

It's a minimal difference that probably won't affect someone above 15 seconds or so, but the simple answer is that it takes a bit longer to reach the cube from a stackmat than when you do keyboard. With keyboard, you can have one hand on the spacebar and one hand on the cube when you start. I just use stackmat because it simulates competition, but either way is technically fine :D

My stackmat times are always significantly faster than keyboard, and this is because in the heat of max TPS I can never hit the space bar correctly to stop the solve. Every 2nd solve I miss the space bar and have to hit it again, losing lots of time.

If u use CStimer, you can stop the solve with any key

Also, does anyone know if you need to supply your own statckmat when you go to a comp?

Note: if you haven't done it yet, you can add your PB Records to your SpeedSolving profile by going to your profile, and clicking on the Accomplishments tab, then clicking on the Add A Personal Record button:

Here is the link to mine:
https://www.speedsolving.com/members/pjk.1/#record

It makes it easy to share your PB records and for others to see your records. We also have a Rank Board which will rank you on the site if you've entered in your records (going through an update now which will be released soon too).

Also, within the next week or so, if you fill in our WCA ID on your profile:
https://www.speedsolving.com/account/account-details
It will feed in your stats from the WCA and show them on your profile. So if you haven't yet, add your WCA ID to your profile.

Thing is, I've never been to a comp so I don't have an ID. I'll probably add my PB records sometime soonish
