My current Ao100 is 20.25 I have submitted the form (I don't have facebook) Can I still compete @Zain_A24
Your times are looking good, almost too good.

I would recommend hanging tight for now. Currently working on getting this league format to a larger group of cubers since it has already been received very well. Just trying to keep it towards cubers how are around 20 to 30 seconds (I understand you have an ao100 of 20.25 but would probably be consistently be getting times in the sub-20 range).

I'll follow up with details on how to take part in "The Leagues" very soon. I'll be happy to help you progress, feel free to let me know if you have any
questions on certain areas of improvement.

EDIT: I would recommend taking a look here - https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/the-leagues-all-speeds-welcome-qualifying.77635/

Week 1 results...I might be setting the bar too high, this is ~3 seconds faster than I've managed in the weekly forum comp.

Hi guys, i did my solves on Monday, but thought not to post them as wanted to give an update on how I've been getting on over the first week.
Started my week off by reviewing some OLL algorithms. It's something I've never looked into before as 2 look oll has been enough for me. As i want to get faster, i feel that it was a good starting point to scrape off some seconds. After a few days of doing some solves i came to the conclusion that it wasn't so much of my oll taking up time, but my cross +1. i began realising more often that i am looking at my cross as I'm solving rather than doing it intuitively. So i spent the rest of my week trying to trust my instinct and just solve and not look at my cross. After many failed attempts i began to bring my times down, getting under 20 on some of them. Every now and then i'd mess up a solve completely and completely stuff up the cross. But, I'm only going to learn by practicing. anyway, here are my times. I did get some very lucky solves, i do admit.

1. 21.81
2. 26.30
3. 17.57
4. 18.19
5. 16.86

ao5: 19.19

Good luck to everyone else in the competition. Although its not the exact same, it is my first time competing in a cubing event. Thank you

Hello again, week 2, very draining week for me. Been training a lot so i've been very achy. Fortunately, i did my solves straight after training, so my eye was in and in peak condition. pulled some good times, but from looking at previous posts, nowhere near the fastest. managed to pull in consistently, only just breaking the sub 20 barrier by hairs. Hadn't been cubing consistently in days and have been playing around with new buys towards the end of the week, so things are becoming sloppier. Hopefully that changes with the new scrambles coming in next week.

1. 18.59
2. 20.66
3. 18.92
4. 18.99
5. 18.66

Ao5: 18.86

Same as last week, good luck everyone. Nice to see improvements. Shows we are working well as a community to help each other learn and improve as a collective.
