I'm going to be brutally honest for a second here. We get the I'm x speed how do I become y speed waaaaaaaaay too often and it's a really annoying question if you don't provide any information. You could also probably find any answers we'd give you anywhere else. There's a lot of good resources out there.So i'm currently getting 25 second solves on average and my pb is 16.35. I need some tips to get sub-20 or at least better than 25.
Thanks, I'll watch the video you recommanded. My last layer really isn't that good, so I should probably practice that as well.the number one thing you should try and do is just work on efficiency. It is tough to get sub 20 when you are averaging 100 moves or so per solve so watch lazer monkey's video on f21 cases done efficiently. You also have to learn how to drill ll algs. I would try and get most plls sub 2, and all of them sub 2.5. Don't worry so much about full oll, and focus on getting sub 1 execution on all the cross cases, and implement all the easy one like the t cases. Besides the one with headlights in the front this should be easy. combining that with the time it takes you to get to a cross case, and pll, your ll should be sub 7. That leaves you with around 12-13 seconds for cross and f21. plan cross in inspection, and solve f21 efficiently and you are set. hopefully that helps.
Got it, I don't think WV is that important for now, can probably help me later on but it prob won't be necessary for sub-20. For COLL, I learned 2 cases for the H OLL case ( the ones with two pieces of the same color next to each others) since they're quite easy.Don't worry about WV that much. There are only a few cases worth learning. And don't learn Sune and Anti-Sune cases for COLL.
Yeah I think F2L is probably the most important step of your solve since it's the longest part of your CFOP solve. I find mindblowing that top solvers can do F2L in under 5 seconds, it's incredible.If you want to find out what you need to improve at specifically than try this:
this is what percent of your solve time should be taken up by each step
Can you be more specific, like your f2l time ,how many OLL/PLL algs you know or something? A video will be the best.I have been trying so hard in the past 6 months to get sub 20 average.
But i am still average about 21 to 23 secs.
Is there any use full tips on how to be sub 20?
You can answer your own question:how to be sub 20?
What do you mean by that ?my last layer sucks
Learn full PLL, it's not that hardi know 17 plls
Change them. There are plenty of great ressources out there, like algdb.netmy algs are a bit long
There are great cheap speedcubes. You might want to check out the "Which cube should I get ? Up to date recommendations" thread.my cube sucks
I have the exact problem. I avg about 22. The thing that I am trying is advanced F2L(algorithmic approach for bad cases) and starting to Look ahead along with better cross solutions (which isnt going that well) as cross should take about 5% of your total solve time.Hello everyone as the title states, I cannot get sub 20s often. my PB is like 14.xx (very lucky solve) but my AO5 is around 24 so here are the facts of my solves.
Cross: 3-5 (seconds)
I know a few oll algs.
I know full pll
I know Intuitive f2l (should I get to algorithmic f2l?)
obviously I need practice but anything else that you guys can help me with?
If you guys and gals want a video I can try to get one out but im not sure if I actually can thanks to everyone and have a wonderful day!!
Nice bump dude. Eh, I guess you’re continuing the current discussion.I have the exact problem. I avg about 22. The thing that I am trying is advanced F2L(algorithmic approach for bad cases) and starting to Look ahead along with better cross solutions (which isnt going that well) as cross should take about 5% of your total solve time.
