So my current method is a variation of CFOP. In this variation, the only change is that I use a ZBF2L algorithm on my last F2L slot so that, on my OLL step, my edges are already oriented. My question is: should I learn OLLCP? The amount of algorithms for a case where the corners are oriented is about 45-50, but is it worth it to learn all of the "no flip" cases and use them in every solve (AKA CLL)? If I did learn these OLLCP algorithms, what would my method be? C3ZOE (Cross-3/4 F2L-ZBF2L-OLLCP-Edges)? CFLOP (Cross-F2L-LSEO-OLLCP-Permute edges)? CZCE (Cross-ZBF2L-CLL-Edges)? I think C3ZOE sounds cool though. "Hey, what method do you use? Beginner's, Friedrich, Roux, Petrus?" "Nah, man, I use SEE THREE ZEE OH EE (zed for my Australian/British (I can't remember which one of you guys says 'zed' and not 'zee') friends)."

ollcp is good, and you should use it if you have the desire to learn it. however, i hear that there are some algs which are slower than just doing OLL/PLL.
when it comes to names though, that is where things get strange. there are so many alternative techniques involving ll/ls that i think it would be most accurate to describe the method used by many of the more advanced 'cfop' solvers as F2LL; solve f2l somehow, and while solving the last pair you influence LL, then do LL (so just take the L from f2l and the first L from LL and blend them together to gt f2ll). but that is confusing, fun to think about, but not practical.
