~12 sec with ZZ. It's hard to tell what I average with CFOP because I stopped using it years ago. I tried it a few days ago because I got the urge to stop sucking at 4x4 and was able to get consistent times with what I get with ZZ after a few solves even though I... wait, why am I answering this? What does this have to do with anything of what I said? Did you figure out you didn't have any good responses and decided to go full ad hominem? Is your plan to just go "oh well you're not sub-X yet so your opinion doesn't count"? Because I got bad news for you, I could be a honey badger that somehow learned how to type but is fully incapable of solving a Rubik's cube, you'd still have to disregard that and respond to my arguments.Uh could you tell me please what do you average with zz, and with cfop
Solving 5 pieces requires significantly less moves on average than solving 4? Can you prove that?I'm sorry to disagree, but lookhead is a lot easier in ZZ because the edges are oriented, and solving a 2x3 block required significantly less moves on average than solving two pairs (and you don't have to care about edge orientation and cube rotation). And as usual, you may influence the last layer case while solving the second block.
And I'm sorry, but pieces being oriented doesn't help lookahead that much (it's cool when you're solving the last pair and can't see the edge, but you can safely assume it's in the back and can pair it and insert it without having to figure out its orientation, but that's about it). On the other hand, having edges you're solving stuck in the bottom layer does affect lookahead negatively, so does the fact that after EO line the edge you're looking to solve can be in one of 10 locations vs one of 8 locations in CFOP, or that when you create an initial pair/block to solve a 2x2x1 the remaining edge is sometimes stuck with the pieces you just paired up (a problem that can be solved by either separating them, or planning how you pair up pieces more carefully to avoid it from happening, both of which take more time than the mindless stuff you can do for CFOP pairs and both of which force you to pay more attention to the block you're solving at the moment instead of paying attention to the next thing you're gonna solve). In summary, worse lookahead.
