I saw you in one of the shops in the riviera and was too scared to say hi :3. I have always had trouble remembering my letter scheme, do you think it is worth having a cube with the letter scheme written on the pieces, Or do you think it is better to learn it in your head with a regular cube?

I wouldn't write the letters on the cube - that way the cube always helps you out and you're never really forced to remember your letter scheme yourself. Use a regular cube and practise recalling your letters as long as it takes.

Thanks Marcell. You are my idol!
It would be great if you can write about your memory method for 3BLD as well as your memory order and why. What's more, could you please write about how you learn BH and the process you learn it?
Thanks anyway, you are great.

Added some more info I forgot last time and corrected a lot of typos.

I want to post a message here too. Congratulations Marcell on everything you've achieved in your cubing career! You are a big inspiration, and I for one really appreciate that you're willing to share your knowledge about blindfold cubing to help the rest of us try to improve our times. You've had a tremendous cubing career with lots of achievements, and I wish you the best of luck in whatever adventure you choose to take on next. I hope you do still cube for fun, even if less competitively, or only just for fun. You're a hall-of-fame cuber, and I'm sure it's been a wonderful ride! Hope to see you at a world competition again some day!

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.

Average of 12: 15.35
1. 15.39 F L B' R' D2 R' B L U2 F2 D2 B' R2 F' L2 D2 F' U2 B2
2. 16.54 D B2 R2 U2 B2 R2 U2 B2 D' R2 B R2 D R2 D' B' U2
3. 13.40 B' L2 B' D2 F' L2 B' F' D2 R2 D2 U' B D B F2 D B U'
4. 13.36 R2 U F2 B' L2 B' R2 D' F2 R2 F' L2 F R2 B' D2 L2 F D2
5. 16.15 U B2 R2 U L2 B2 U' L2 D' L2 U2 F L2 U R2 D2 F2 U B'
6. 15.10 F2 L2 B2 D' B2 D' F2 L2 B2 R2 U' B D' F2 D B U'
7. 16.14 F L2 B2 R2 U2 B D2 L2 R2 F' R2 U F' D' F' D' F' U
8. (17.82) F2 L2 R2 B R2 B U2 L2 D2 R2 B' U B' F2 U' F2 D2 B U'
9. (13.05) U2 L U2 L' D2 R' B2 R D2 L' F2 U' L R U' L' R' U' F2
10. 16.83 U2 R U R F2 R' F2 U' F2 B2 U2 R F2 L' B2 D2 R2 L U2
11. 14.62 F2 R2 U2 R2 U2 B D2 B R2 D2 L2 U B2 F' D2 L2 R2 B D
12. 15.94 D2 R' F2 L2 R U2 L U2 F2 L D2 B R F2 R' B' F2

That said, I doubt Marcell uses R2, so I don't see why he would make a tutorial for it.

R2 is fun, but 3-style is much better yo.

*Argues with Stefan*

You really thought this through?
Yes, I have thought it through.
I have been using R2 for the past 6 years, and I am not facing problems to get sub-25.
R2 is a good method, and with R2+ and some more advanced algorithms in this method we can get down to sub-30 on 5-6 TPS, but sub-25 with R2 is hard. Even with Max Park turning speed.

3-style just has less finger movements and helps to develop momentum in corner execution.

Have you thought through the fact that you were arguing with something from 5.5 years ago?
