OK. I am focusing on 4x4 and will buy other big cubes soon. Because the Worlds have been postponed, I have a chance to be really good at big cubes by then, and want to do that. I want to be top 10 in 4,5,6, and 7 in worlds, and podium in at least one. To this end, I am working on 4x4 CN, which many people don't see the point in, but I do.

Poggers: I became CN on 4x4 and dropped my times by about 40 seconds. I average about 1:15 right now. I don't have a 5x5, but when I get one, I'm hoping that it will help me improve in 4x4. Keep up the good work.

I avg 55 now
To make sure you're realistic about that...if you currently average 55 in 5x5, I'd say you have an outside shot at being top-10 at worlds. But you said that's your time in 4x4. Not to crush any dreams but just understand how long it will take to drop times that substantially.

Sooo...
You haven't touched a 5,6, or 7 and you want to be top 10 at worlds in a year? I think you would need 2+ years of experience at a minimum even at a worlds with less attendance cause COVID.

Why don't you just focus on normal 3x3 solves instead of mehta? Mehta probably isn't going to get anyone a WR anyway, so why not try to work your way up to that level?
I'm switching to Mehta. I understand it might not get a WR, but Zeke on Discord got a 5 second solve and the method has only been around for ca 6 months. compare that to CFOP

Interesting. I personally feel like it isn't worth it. However, I believe you can go as far as you believe you can. I'm gonna stick with CFOP though
