just did my first ever mbld attempt, it was 2/3 in 31:02.50 (ik that's over the WCA time limit but still it's a start). I'm pretty sure the reason I failed in my first cube was because I did an incorrect setup move for corners then did the reverse of the correct setup move.
probably would have been under the time limit if I wasn't stupid and memorized corners before edges like I do in normal blindfolded solving. Then I ended up doing them first so on my 2 cubes that had parity I had to undo the corner exec and do edges, then parity, then corners again.

2nd ever multiblind attempt: 1/3, 22:43.94. 1 cube had 3 corners and 3 edges off. 1 cube had 2 corner twists. I think I'll go for 4 cubes next week since the memo wasn't as hard on my brain this time around. I guess I either just memoed the wrong letters or messed up recall or exec. The time was much better though

What do you average on 3BLD

I want to be able to do 7 or 8 cubes by the time comps start back up. I'm just bad at making letter pairs into images which is why it's hard for me rn.
I can sub hour 7 and I’m worse than you at 3BLD and haven’t practiced much MBLD. If you go for it I’m sure you will be surprised at what you can do.

3rd ever multiblind attempt: 3/5: 43:13.00 One cube that was unsolved I realized I memoed the same letter twice when it wasn't the start and end of a cycle, and one cube I gave up after trying to recall corner memo for 5 minutes (but there were 3 edges unsolved anyway). I'm pretty happy with how I'm progressing (even though it's still 1 point in the WCA, I'm attempting more cubes), and I might go for 6 next week.

Recently I got a multiblind PB of 4/5 in 30:14! My only fail was a cube I completely forgot, I literally sat there for about 5 minutes trying to recall it. I finally recalled a few letters, but they must've been the wrong ones/ in the wrong order. I'm getting much faster at memorizing these large quantity of letters, as this attempt would've been around 25 minutes if I didn't forget a cube and spend 5 minutes recalling it. I definitely plan to attempt 7 or 8 cubes soon.

Nice achievement. I hope you will push the number of cubes in your future attempts to 10+ cubes. Good luck.

Last week I attempted 10 cubes (first 5+ in 6 months) and got a new PB by 7:06!
The result was 9/10 in 45:57 [32:53] which broke my 8/8 in 53:03 [42:30] from 8 months ago.

I'm still too lazy to make some rooms and try out the loci method and I'm absolutely horrible at making up words that make sense (sometimes it's more like audio memo) which causes huge slowdowns on bigger attempts (5 cubes is just fine).
Execution on this attempt was terrible too because I had very long recall pauses (should've been 5min faster).
I don't even remember the DNF cause, the cube was almost completely scrambled (I think 1 corner was solved), but it was definitely some exec mess-up.

Today I got 4/5 in 13:10 [9:14]. This was my fastest by around 1:20 so far. Splits are nothing special, just solid memo and recall, scrambles were pretty easy though.

The DNF is off by 4e4c (or 7 moves)
During the last's cube (Valk Elite) penultimate corner alg I fixed a corner twist successfully (yay) but somehow missed the last move, F, of the alg.
The attempt felt really good though and I'm looking forward to get a 5/5 in a decent time somewhen (or 10 points if I'm not lazy).

also yay some multibld stuff in this thread again
