You've always been my favorite big blinder): I hope you come back to competitive blind!
Hey someone, maybe if you beat his world records he will come back!

Another one leaving? At least you have an impressive legacy, best of luck with whatever you decide to do now, and I hope to maybe see you back some day pushing some other boundaries in BLD.

If you have the time, can you make a tutorial on R2? I haven't found any good tutorials out there, other than the one on Pochmann's website. If you could make a video tutorial, that'd be awesome

Also, congratulations on winning all of the BLD events!

From our conversation at world's, I think this is a great decision. Very similar to what I felt over a year ago. You've been an inspiration to many including me. There is no doubt that without your achievements, I would never have been driven to the things I achieved, so I can thank you for that.
Cubing and many cubers will miss you but you can make your decision based on whether you miss Cubing. I hope that you can return as a new Marcell, who can relax at comps and do some solves and have loads of fun

Nah, it's alright. I really don't think R2 is bad, though. I've been using it for years and I still like it. Just did a 15.35 average of 12 with qq's corners only scrambler, and I'm not the fastest turner and I did it sighted where I can't look ahead as well as the top blindsolvers can from memory.

Ah, ok. Never followed much who's using what.
Then I'll take that as an advertisement for R2, that you can become world champion after starting with it
