6/6 in 18:00, and this was a messy attempt (still a PB though).

I hadn't been paying attention when scrambling, so I did the fifth scramble on both the fifth and sixth cubes. I didn't notice until I started memorizing the last cube, and then I realized that I'd only generated five scrambles, so I had to open a timer on my phone to get a new scramble. Without that I could've easily gotten under three minutes per cube. It's frustrating...

I'm 99% I asked this before but go easy on me I just spent like 15mins trying to find it hehe :p

In regards to MBLD improvement, How did you practice, going from say 5 to 10 cubes to 25+ cubes sub hour? (Don't have to reply to the memory itself training cuz I've already had that answered in a seperate thread)
Lots of small attempts to work on accuracy then a few big ones or lots of attempts bigger than an hour?

When I've practised and experimented and I know how to get good, I'll beat Zane Carney's 23/25 former WR current NR

:)

42/48 in 59:39
memo 38:04 47.6s/cube
solve 21:35 26.9s/cube
total 1:14.5s/cube
memo analysis:
1-8 5:01
9-16 5:23
17-24 5:15
review 1-24 5:12 (first 24 in 20:51, PB)
25-32 5:39
33-40 5:57
41-44 2:35
45-48 3:02
My fastest and biggest sub1 attempt
Memo was absolutely amazing, exec however was nervous and had a lot of pauses
6 dnfs, mainly because I had a long break and my hands still do something different than brain tells them
I need just -2.5s/cube to fit 50 ;)

Impressive. Do you think you can do this in competition? The WR can't last much longer.

41/48 59:04
memo 37:27 46.8s/cube
solve 21:37 27s/cube
total 1:13.8s/cube
slightly improved memo time, not happy about the accuracy though
3 cubes messed up due to random hand moves, 3memo mistakes 1 exec mistake
56 seconds left, so if I had done additional 3bld cube at the end I would have fitted 49
What do you guys think, should I go for 50? :v

I plan to go to 7 competitions in next 4 months (propably 6 of them will have mbld), and if everything goes as planned I want to make a series of serious WR attacks with 46 cubes ;)

43/46 in 1:00:05+2 [36:34]

5 seconds off 40 points ;) 38 points wca style! My fourth best attempt ever

memo: 36:34 [47.69/cube]
exec: 23:31 [30.67/cube]
total: 1:00:05 [1:18.36/cube]

mistakes:
1) forgot to memorise a twisted corner (this was the very first cube I memorised, there were 4 cycle breaks in corners so I missed the twisted corner)
2) Did the mirror of a comm in edges by mistake (IR instead of IT)
3) couldn't recall a letter pair in edges (OF)

overall these are very avoidable mistakes so quite happy. 3 cubes away from 46/46 ;)

Me and Tomas Kristiansson thought of a fun way to train MLBD with only one cube. I tried it out now with only 2 scrambles but you could do as many as you like. It’s quite fun.
You’ll do the first scramble, memorize and then solve normal CFOP. Then do the second scramble and memorize, then solve again with CFOP.
After that you’ll do scramble 2 and then 1. Then you will solve 1 and 2.

PB by 4 points: 21/21 in 58:00 [41:03/16:57] (for the weekly competition)

Never before has my attempt flowed so nicely. My memo time was very fast in the beginning and in the end I had time left to memo and review much more carefully than usually.

I wasn't near forgetting anything, that's why the execution felt amazing.

3,5 weeks until the Finnish Championships, 2 attempts there. Maybe I'll try a few attempts at 23 and 25 before that. This time I'm really gonna get that NR!

Plowed through my home PB the other day, 12/12 in 58min. Very surprised that I managed it sub-hour, since I'd never tried more than 10 cubes before.

I memorized in packs of 3, which might have slowed me down. Looking back and also comparing it to my previous PB, 9/9, I have some considerations as well:

- 4 cube packs feel a bit less overwhelming in the long run, and allow for a more streamlined memorization. Transitioning between packs of 3 was a bit stressful, somehow;

- I need a better system for Parity, such as a specific location within each room in which I will place the Parity reminder (I currently turn the last letter into an action, attached to each last pair);

- I should start spreading the cubes around my Loci a bit better, using one room for just one cube, for example. Currently I gradually fill the pathway through my Loci with all the images, with the downside of ANY missing link (a forgotten image / cube / Parity) potentially ruining the remainder of the solve as a whole.

Thoughts?
