Okay so I am back again. Recently school started up and I kinda got busy with that, obviously couldn't do 5 or 6 mbld attempts each week and kept to like 1 or 2. Around the same time I started getting very bad solves, like 5/10, a 3 pointer, 4 pointer. This week Tuesday I started again and decided to do an attempt every day besides for Mondays. Obviously some days I would skip out if I don't have time, but that was the goal anyway. Again I got bad results, finally an okay 10/12 which was quite slow. Then the following day an 11/17 with many different errors. Maybe I am stressing myself because there are now others going after the same record as I am. Or, like a friend of mine suggested, the dip in the learning curve.
Anyway, pointless story over.

I did back-to-back MBLD attempts today, in total using all my rooms. I did a 14 cube attempt first and then 13. It was a fun experience and the results were actually not totally all that bad.
11/14 in 36:56[22:55] with small errors (can't remember them all atm)
10/13 in 34:10[22:03] with multiple errors on each cube. Cube 1: memo'd corners incorrectly, did a comm wrong, recalled 2 edge pairs out of order; Cube 11: forgot to entirely undo setup moves on corners and recalled 2 pairs out of order; Cube 13: possibly an inverse comm or exec error

PB3 atm. Very happy with the result. Despite being so late at night, I feel I did very well and even though memo was slower than my previous 20 cube attempt by 80 seconds, I managed to execute 2 minutes faster(have been avging 50 for exec for the last week)

Also now have 4 or 5 consecutive MBLD results that have been 12 or more pts, meaning I sub-AfR'ed 4 or 5 MBLD's in a row. Very happy, just need to get a comp and officially get the record now...

3rd 16 cube attempt. Not a great amount of points but I'm really happy with the time. Sub 2 memo per cube and almost sub 1 exec per cube, 12 minutes faster than my previous 16 cube attempt, and close to my pb of 11/12 in 44 min.

do yall think I can get 20 Points without comms?
Yes, however its recommended to learn commutators right away

If you can execute each cube in about 1 minute then you should be fine, especially if you memo quite fast and can memo 20 cubes sub 35. Though, LEARN 3-Style. Heheh

Woah, we like so close to the same speed. I am now sub 2 /cube for memo and exec has suddenly dropped to sub 55/50. When did you start multi-BLDing?

Not very happy since I had to review over again because I kept forgetting memo, struggled through exec aswell to recall.
Still a massively good result, being sub AfR and all, but didn't feel good at all, obviously slow too because of forgetting memo and wasting many time on reviews

I started doing BLD in february and did my first mbld 5/5 in early april. i did an 8/10 late april then i didnt cube for like 1.5 months lol. got an 11/12 in june, took another break, then started doing 16 cube attempts in late july. still havent beaten the 11/12 but im getting there :p. im probably gonna work on getting my 3 style faster than my m2/op before i do more cubes

Goodness that's fast. I've been doing multi since January, only started doing bld more often in January but could do it last year sometime. I am learning corner 3 style atm and using Orozco currently. The speed you have gotten this far is insane...

Well, The PB List link in my signature has a tab for it and you'll see all of them I know so far, although about 10 or so aren't filled in yet. I'm kind of trying my own things like when I'm at school and then if I find something bad over and over, I'll use the alg from Graham's list. Or I just learn them off there. Don't do cancellations yet which means I would do R U':[R' D R, U2] a U3 here in the end, but that I will sort out later. I know 4 letters of edges

....eh I am not happy because this ties AfR in points but is 7 minutes too slow..
Cube 2: Inserted an edge flipped, forgot corners during exec (rarely forget memo)
Cube 11: Did a U instead of U2 in l' U D':[R D R', U2]
Cube 16: Just some exec stuff but 4 top edges off and top corners and 2 on bottom, probably an extra U somewhere..
Cube 20: Think I totally forgot a letterpair or just recalled something else, few edges.
Cube 21: 3bld cube, I inserted an edge flipped...

Overall it is pretty okay, decent amount of time left actually, but I struggled to focus a lot even though it's a nice Saturday morning and I slept well enough. Many of these errors are pretty stupid really, probably next time I hope I can try to sub 55 this and get like 17 cubes solved atleast.

Not too happy with the points but very happy with the memo time. 1:43 per cube, 17 seconds faster than last 16 cube pb. However i forgot a few pairs and paused a lot making my exec really slow. I forgot the pairs because i use really dumb words for AH, OW, OH, AW, WO, etc which is basically just “[thing] says AH” which is stupid and not easy to remember which pair it is. Ill work on my words and next attempt i should have better recall

Another 10 pointer :p exec was pretty slow because i was tired and was having some recall issues. I ended up partially forgetting edge memo for two cubes, and i missed a flipped edge in another. Hopefully ill pb next time

16/19 Multi-BLD
Not all that amazing in points, albeit sub AfR, the time is INCREDIBLE! 45:43[30:48]
I can't believe I memo'd 19 cubes in just 30 minutes.
That's 1:37/cube
Exec is insane aswell. expected about 16 mins exec, not 14:54
That's 47.05/cube

I wasn't rushing memo or anything at all. It just went so fast. Working on this I should be able to do 23-25 cubes in one hour. Which was actually the goal of the YEAR, since like 3 months ago. So that shows how fast I have improved. I don't even know half of 3 style concerning 3x3. Should probably focus on that?
Errors: Cube 18: thought I didn't execute the last edge letter, but did, so yeah, 3e.
Cube 14: Didn't do/ inversed the last edge alg, 3e.
Cube 16: Last executed cube, some kind of exec error on corners, because when redoing scramble, I solved it. 3c.

Happy to see that with speed and increasing cubes, my accuracy stays in ratio.
