Dang, so its just intuition or fewest moves, no strategy steps?Main discussion https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/curvy-copter-discussion-new.75052/
My guess would be being move efficient in first layer (for example solving centers, edges, corners together instead of one at a time) and then applying last layer algs, but I have never attempted a speedsolve.
For a 2 minute non-jumbling time it is impressive that you have just 1/2 to 1 1/2 minutes more in the weekly comp with jumbling.I can't even be sub-2 actually
That was with jumbling? Oh crap. No, i didnt jumble at all actually.For a 2 minute non-jumbling time it is impressive that you have just 1/2 to 1 1/2 minutes more in the weekly comp with jumbling.
I loose most over 1 minute to get the cube in cube shape And the LL Jumbling sometimes takes 3-5 minutes.
Do you have a tutorial or so with jumbling tips for Shape and LL?
Oops. Yes, the notation (in the Weekly Competition scrambles) with the +, +2, - and -2 after a move indicates an approximately 60 degree and approximately 120 degree turn. So the sequences like:That was with jumbling? Oh crap. No, i didnt jumble at all actually.
I measured my LanLan with a protractor and it's about 90 +- 12 deg, or 78 and 102 deg.So just to be completely clear, + means 60 degrees clockwise, +2 means 120 degrees clockwise, - means 60 degrees counterclockwise, and -2 means 120 degrees counterclockwise. If there's no + or -, it means a 180 degree turn.
And of course, like I said earlier, those angles are approximate values. I'm not sure what the actual angle is - it's clearly something a bit different from 60 and 120 degrees - whatever it takes to allow the next turn.
I came up with my own method that does last layer completely differently and is probably way slower. https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/curvy-copter-discussion-new.75052/page-7#post-1383498I am sub-3 minutes at the moment (without jumbling, with jumbling I need 7-10 minutes but done just 15 solves).
So I think I have no big tips for you but maybe?
1. Step 4 white leaves
No tip. I just do it intuitive
2. Step the corners with the 2 additional leaves
I think you know how to recognize in which direction you have to rotate a corner to get it with white side on the correct place? So if you have to rotate it left or right around the cube?
3. Step the yellow leaves
I also do it intuitive but this can be a starting point. Look at the cases an practice to recognize the optimal solution
4. Step PLL (yes, I do PLL before OLL)
At the moment I only can make a Aa-Perm and a Ab-Perm and I use not really Perms because the alg I use also changes the rotation of the corners
5. Step OLL
At the moment I only use Sune and AntiSune so sometimes I need too many Sunes!
So for me the next steps are to learn the additional 5 OLL cases and to use A a/b Perms that are really perms and to learn the additional 2 PLL cases.
Maybe this helps? But I think If you are Sub-2 you already do this OLL and PLL perms.
