3. My Rooms are super messy :(
I completely understand what you mean, but I would recommend that you pick up all the room really well before you do a MBLD attempt to that they are not messy when you are using them for MBLD:p Sorry!

Seriously though I personal use one room per cube and for corners I use the closet and edges I use the rest of the room, to keep thing different, (this method has helped me a lot and it is what I would recommend.
I am not at all great at MBLD, but if you were wondering on what other people use/how they use rooms then this is my 2 cents worth of information.

New MBLD PB: 10/10 in 51:09.77[33:46.85] Although it is only a PB by 14 seconds, it is still a PB!:)

This attempt was sub SR which is really nice, plus if I get this same result (meaning 10/10) at my competition next month then I can for sure qualify for US Nationals 2018. I am most likely going to keep doing 10 cubes form now until the competition just to make sure that I am comfortable with it for the competition and also I would like to get sub 50/45:00 before the competition so that I have plenty of extra time in case something goes wrong during the attempt.

Another shot at 8 cubes before moving back into double digits territory:

29:07.73 [22:09.94]

And uh... Wow! I did not see this one coming lmao

I was actually kinda rushing and just hoping for sub-40 but somehow managed to get really in the zone during memo.

Execution was really bad and had lots of dumb pauses, but then again I had to improvise images that aren't very solid yet.

Also made a more efficient distribution of images through my Rooms as per @cubesheperd 's advice, which also seemed to work very nicely. All my recall pauses were due to untrained / improvised images, so that should start changing soon.

DNFs were one flipped edge and one missed edge cycle, both on the last and 3BLD cubes.

First attempt of the day:

10/12 in 58:34 [44:14]

Disappointing, to say the least. My images game needs serious work.

Second attempt, hours later:

11/12 in 52:34 [38:29]

A bit better, but still far from what I wanted. Images felt better, and the rearrangement of my Rooms is finally starting to settle, so I expect good progress as my images get more solid. The drill continues, and the next attempts should be at 15 Cubes.

New 10/10 MBLD PB: 10/10 in 46:04.16
I would really like to get the time under 45:00, and I would have gotten that had I not had a 1-2 minute pause to recall the last 2 cubes, but still really happy with the time as it is.

9/11 MBLD Fail. I am a little sad about this attempt because one of the DNF'd cubes was only off by 2 edges and if I had remembered that letter pair this attempt would have been a PB since it would have been 10/11.

But this was my first time trying 11 cube in MBLD so it not to disappointing, but I need to work on remembering everything better (like spending a little more time reviewing;)).
Also, I decided to switch to OP/OP for MBLD recently because I know that I will have a harder time trying to remember all the M2 algs and if I will have parity on a cube, at the competition that I am going to in a couple of day, so instead of worrying about parity and what not I am going to be using OP/OP this time around, especially since I get much more nervous in a competition, and this will be the first time competing in MBLD at a competition, so with all that combined I will stick with OP/OP.

I decided to improve my speed, because with 48 cubes I can get a world record even with 3 rolling pops


memo: 37:50 47.3s/cube
execution: 20:38 25.7s/cube
total: 58:28 73s/cube

2nd best attempt overall, 4th 40+
setting up the cubes 9s
1-8 5:29
9-16 5:11
17-24 5:06
1-24 5:01
25-32 5:37
33-40 5:57
41-44 2:30
44-48 2:44
