how to recognize the cut between corners and edges (or the other way around) if you are using a 2 letters 1 image memorizing method?
If you mean you are concatenating memo, like AB CD E|F GH IJ KL MN NO, then you can make the parity pair big or shiny or bloody or something like that.

It seems that nobody posts in this thread so I'll post a PB:
41/42 59:49 :D
39:42 memo, 20:07 exec.
40 points! Unfortunately not on cam :(
Memo was a bit slow, I went safe and had problems with concentration

I have an official attempt this Friday, I will attempt 42 there :D

Random observation from WCA rankings: multiblind PRs increase close to exponentially. Of those competitors with PR >=N points, 40-48% have PR >=(N+5). That holds from 5 all the way to 30 points.

That's probably not surprising, but still I found it interesting.

Maybe nobody posts here because there's too much overlap with the success/failures threads? This result feels like neither, so I'll put it here.

Missed PR by doing the final comm backwards, and missed NR by an additional flipped edge (not sure if I missed it, tracing error, or exec error).


19/21 in 59:09 [40:50; 18:19]
2:49/cube [1:56/cube; 52/cube]
Memo was slow but I knew I wasn't in a rush; exec was decent, and would have been 50/cube without the recall pause at the end.

So on my 'journey' to get some 9/9's so I can increase my number of cubes, I just got a 8/9 in 26:29[16:27] Cube 3: UF and UB flipped. Which, by time, is a new PB by 6 minutes. The average memo per cube is sub 2 which is pretty cool. Execution could've been faster but since I started learning 3 style algs for corners, I went slower during those algs and almost messed up one aswell. My 3bld has recently gotten faster and so I think that played its part in all this.
This is also my second 8/9 so I am quite happy with this. Kinda hating how easy the memo is for 9 cubes and it takes only 30 mins so I keep up my big attempts every now and then to get used to those rooms.

Finally! A PB on Multi! For some reason it is so hard for me to get 100% on these small numbers.

9/9 in 30:52[20:12]

When I get another 2 or 3 9/9's I will move on to 10. Kinda sad how short this takes me but I fail 100% on it lol.
I don't see any reason to not immediatly go for let's say 15 cubes. You're fast enough. And it's nice to push yourself, by doing bigger attempts you'll by default also increase accuracy on smaller attempts.
Getting N/N before moving on is just holding you back. Remember that eg 13/15 will get you a better score at a comp than 10/10

Haha Yeah thanks. I do often do bigger attempt. I did an ao5 this week with a 14, 10 and 9 cube attempt. Sometimes I do 12. Also did a 20 cube before but didnt sub hour(didnt think i would anyway just wanted to see the result, was 16/20 1:30:xy)

Multi-BLD fail
11/18 in 57:58[39:59]
Cube 4: recalled IM TH DF SK instead of TH ID DF SK
Cube 6: swapped two letter pairs around again. realised like 10 mins later and after finishing my other cubes I came back to it and probably messed up a bit whilst reversing and fixing; 3e
Cube 9: BD edge flipped.. Didn't see it.
Cube 11: an exec error somewhere and LF flipped from start; 3e
Cube 12: some inverse comm somewhere, 3c
Cube 16: it fell off the table... while I was picking up cube 15.... oof, second time dropping a cube. Will not make this mistake again soon.
Cube 18: 3bld cube and I probs twisted wrong or I missed in memo or something

Think all the exec mistakes are because of the insane speed I was going so I could sub hour. avg exec per cube is just just over a minute.
Memo errors are stupid idk why I miss flips now so much.. 3 in this attempt.

okayy, no one posts anything here so I will go ahead and post my Multi-BLD attempt I just finished.
13/15 in 41:41[25:18] (a minute faster than yesterday's 11/13)
Errors:
Cube 5: some exec error. Can be solved with [S', U2] which isnt a 3 style comm with UF so Idk what happened lol.
Cube 15: 3bld cube, also exec, 3c
no memo or tracing errors! despite memo'ing so damn fast (besides one I found while reviewing)

Definitely a massive improvement recently. 15 days ago I did an 11/14 in 54 mins (was a bit slower than usually) but in two weeks I improved greatly.
Seeing as I only started multi-BLD this year, and only started being serious in about mid February, I think I have progressed quite quickly and can't wait to see what I accomplish in the next half year. As soon as I get a good result with 18 cubes, I will start trying to sub hour 20 cubes. My goal is to sub hour 25 cubes by the end of this year, but I think that will come sooner than I expected when I set this goal a while ago.
