Learning algs doesn't make you faster, efficient solving and applying the techniques into your solves is the key to speed. There's probably a reason why you're only sub 20 and I (and others in this thread) average an 11 global or sub 10.

This is good but it's quite vague, and the amount of work you have put into these things is really the more important thing here.

To take xcrosses as an example, if you did a comprehensive study of how Feliks finds xcrosses (from reconstructions of his solves at cubesolv.es), and found many of the patterns and ideas that allow him to do xcrosses so frequently, then I'd genuinely be interested in what you could teach me. But if it's just that you're trying to do xcrosses whenever you can see them in your solves, well, I already do that.
Thank you for your feedback on this.

True, but we focus on more than that. We also focus on habits of errors in algs.

Ok guys people aren't going to get sponsored by sub 20 kids and you guys are acting like this is a proper company
What do you think we can work on then/what ideas do you have?

To anyone who believed that they can get sponsorship at any speed after reading the first post in this thread:

Please read The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.
Also please ask your parents (or google) "How to distinguish a get-rich-quick scheme from a genuine investment opportunity"?
We are not in for money. We have made nothing.

I didn't say that you're in it for money. Also there is absolutely nothing wrong in being in something for the money. Nor is making money or trying to make money wrong.

What is wrong is making a thread "If you're wondering how to get sponsored at any speed here is how:" and then not saying how (or actually saying vague "join us!")
It's wrong to promise the impossible (get sponsored at any speed)
It's wrong to promise things you can't deliver (offering valuable coaching to sub-10 people)
It's mildly wrong to multi-account to bump your advertisment.
and it doesn't look good to make one-liner replies in other threads just so that your "Founder of blablabla" signature is visible all over the place.

You should only go public with this kind of "too good to be true" offer to the community if you have a proven record that you can get anyone sponsored or coach anyone to get really good at cubing.

One: this is two different people working together. Two: I reply to other threads to help, not spread the word. I other words, I'm just like you. Why are you trying to ”bar” me from doing what everyone else does on this forum, but without a signiture like mine. You do have good points though. Three: I didn't make this thread. I wouldn't of named it that. I am just a Co-Founder. I would've named it: WeCubeTeam: The Cubing Team for New Cubers to the Community to be Helped! Once again, thank you for your criticism.


How can you help me with 3BLD?
I am sorry, this is one thing that we don't know, but would be very willing to learn. Thank you.

And once again; sponsorship SHOULD NOT be your goal in cubing.
Your right. We are really trying to get new cubes to get to the point where they can get sponsored.

Your saying he's right about sponsorships not being a main goal, and then saying you want to help them get sponsored.

So you can learn how to do 3BLD and immediately be able to help someone who averages 22?

do you have any advice for a sub 9 solver to become color neutral other than the obvious self-explanatory stuff?
Yes actually, try blind solving

Not really, I would need to practice, in a hunch. Not already fast cubers, but newer slower cubers. There are other things we can help faster ones with. I know I sound contradictary, but trust me y’all, please. We just want to help the community!

this is flawed logic my main goal in cubing is not to be sub 15 on sq1 but that doesn't mean if someone offered me help to get sub 15 on sq1 I would probably still say yes
