43/50 in 1:02:32 [36:51] for the weekly comp, 39/50 inside the hour

Awesome attempt for me, my fastest memo per cube ever at 44.22 sec per cube! PB time for 50 cubes, beats my previous 40/50 in 1h11 :p

total time per cube is 75.04 which is also a PB
I just want to say I feel vindicated now! I was asked at US Nationals in 2012 what I thought the 1 hour limit on multi would be, and I said 60 cubes. And then I said "50 certainly - I'm CONVINCED that 50 will be done". That got a good bit of laughter.

Thank you, Shivam, for working toward proving me right. :) Absolutely awesome job.

Haha thank you very much :D I also believe that much more than 50 is surely possible given enough time, effort and dedication :)

41/50 MBLD in 1:00:09 [34:13]

9 sec away from sub hour :D 30 points.

41.06 memo/cube, PB
31.13 exec/cube
72.18 total/cube

very happy to get an attempt this fast since there were an above average number of tough scrambles in this attempt!

I target 10 cube improvement per year, when I started MBLD in 2014 I got 10 cubes sub hour, 20 in 2015 and 30 in 2016 and 40 also in 2016 :p so my 2018 goal of 50 cubes is very close ;)

Feels awesome to finally pass a long sought milestone :D 50 cubes sub hour :D second person ever to do it!

40/50 in 58:42 [34:27]

Had a lot of tough scrambles in there too, so quite happy with the time!

Memo: 34:27 [41.34/cube]
Exec: 24:15 [29.10/cube]
Total: 58:42 [70.44/cube] PB by almost 1 second

Now just have to catch up on accuracy

31/40 57:33[32:52], not bad
horrible execution(also wasted 1 minute because of something stupid), decent accuracy for first sub-hour, and awesome memo splits
1-8: 5:30 - great
9-16: 5:49 - good
17-24: 6:09 - meh
1-24 review: 5:10(12.91s/cube) - super insane, wow, pb by 40s
25-32: 5:50 - great for the 4th pack
33-36: 2:27 - awesome
37-38: 1:18 - bad
39: 0:30 - good
40: 0:17 - good

Memo 49.3s/cube - amazing
Execution 37.03s/cube - terrible
2 DNFs due to forgetting, 7 DNFs by a few pieces for unknown reasons

8/8 in 45:56.49 (or a bit less - iPhone-Timer didn't stop)
8 different sizes: 30 mm to 56 mm (all sub Rubik's)
memo 25:55, scrambles from the weekly competition
previous pb for 8/8 (all the same size) was 45:59 :D

Just got 9/13 multi in 1:08.39! and I’m not sure what to think of it. Really bad recall meant I had a ton of time lost in execution, I had 5+ 1-2 minute pauses which killed sub hour. DNFs are
1. 2 flipped edges
2. Off by a 3cycle
3. Didn’t shoot to last corner target
4. Didn’t shoot to last edge target
Really dumb mistakes especially number 3 and 4. Going to work on finding a better way to remember parity (since I forgot it) I am pretty happy with the rest of this attempt though.

Multi pb. 12/13 in 59:02.11, same amount of points as previous pb but I beat the time by about 36 seconds. Dnf was my 3bld cube :p I traced the last possible piece wrong :/ I memod and executed SB instead of SM. So 100% perfect execution and recall but the last letter was a mis-memo :( still happy with the overall, 17 cubes is what I will be attempting next

Getting back on the swing, lol. From this I'll probably jump into 15 cubes from now until I have them comfortably sub-hour.

7/10 in 47:03.49 [34.56.42]

Afterthoughts:

- I'm improving my letter pair list, and it kinda shows already. Some images are much clearer and show up easier.

- Added a new room and slightly adjusted others. Been forcing myself to spread individual cubes apart more, as well as have clearer divisions of Corners / Edges. Seems to work well.

- As a result, my memo/exec structure is much simpler, using packs of 4 cubes. Memo a pack, review. Memo another, review. Then review both and add the 9th cube on a separate room. Then I execute as 10 (3BLD), 9 and 1-8.

- My execution is all too safe and slow, but every now and then I'll pick up a good rhythm as my think-ahead is improving.

DNFs:

- Recall mistake which I thought I'd fixed like a goddamn genius but apparently was just channeling my inner scrambler instead.

- Seriously wrong comm, apparently, and forgot to flip an edge.

- Twisted a corner the wrong way around, rip.
