I did another 5 cube attempt for this weekly comp and finally solved them all.
The time was 13:45 [9:26], a little slower than last week and the scrambles were pretty easy but I don't really care.
My last 5/5 was in early February and considering I did less than 20 MultiBLD attempts, more or less regularly, in that time I am quite happy that this was almost 15min faster.

Congrats @sigalig , for 60 points in multi after almost 2 years.

twitch tv videos 897545750


Super excited, did not see my twitch notif today morning and I missed it. Will attend the 69 cube celebratory stream tomorrow though.

Poggers!

(Twitch have made it harder to embed video in other sites recently (maybe wanting to channel to traffic to their site directly, instead of 3rd party site) , so the video will not been seen properly in the post. It will be posted on YT anyway in a few days.)

Did my first ever MBLD attempt on Sunday, 0/3!
I'm still a beginner with BLD, working on letter pairs, comms, etc, (my PR for 3BLD is 4:36) but I couldn't help myself from trying just to see how it went. Unfortunately, all 3 cubes had parity! My memory held up rather well; I took six minutes to memo each cube, and then took six minutes to review all the cubes together, execution took about 25 minutes. I didn't remember to place the first cube's edges in the loci path, so I had trouble remembering those and it showed when I finished, but I remembered the next two cubes well. I had an execution error on the second cube so it didnt look particularly solved, but the first and last cubes were only a few edges away and some twists on the first one from being solved. I expected memory to go well from the get-go, since I have some experience with memory techniques prior to BLD, which was confirmed with how this attempt went. All in all, I think this was the most encouraging 0/3 that could have happened, and after I practice 3BLD for a little bit more, I will no doubt try an MBLD again!

exec mistake and I was unable to recall the last image of the last cube​
I was unable to recall one of the image​
I liked the memo flowing well and I didn’t forget it, all the cubes were execution mistake​
Cube 6 recall first image of the cube, I tried to rebuild but failed so the execution time was high. Cube 5 recall right but I did comm wrong was TL (edge) I did TF, cube 3 execution error. OBS first time using a new memory palace.​
Cubo 1 mistake comm VP(edge)
Cubo 5 mistake comm FJ(corner)​
I was unable to recall cube 3 corners and cube 6 corners​
I liked the memo, I found it quick compared to others, one of the cubes went wrong with KQ (edge) I did SK but I realized during the solution and managed to fix it.​

Hello!
I have come back to the multiblind grind, have kind of been preparing for a month or 2 now. I have redone a third of my letterpairs, for the first time really making a list instead of sticking with the pairs that I adopted mid-attempt in my earlier multi days. Initially it was a bit of a struggle to use, which I realized yesterday evening with a 12/16 in 31:07[21:50] (slow memo and exec for what I expect / could do in the past). Just after today's attempts I feel a lot better about the pairs. It does slow down my initial image forming and such, but I think I should be back to speed soon..

Another big change I have done is to the way I memorize. Only recently I realized that I over-safety my multiblind in like literally all my attempts. My first pass of the cubes is very long and is really a memo + review session (constantly review the last 2 or 3 pairs as I memorize them). After realizing this, I decided to focus on fixing this, doing the first pass without going over the memo during it. This resulted in my 2nd pass being less of a review and more of a checking and "finishing" memo, which is supposedly how it's commonly done. This made my times drop significantly, I was only testing and practicing on 2, 4 and 8 cube attempts (having no 3bld/short term cube, always memo 1-x, review 1-x, solve 1-x to simulate sections of cubes within a big attempt). To mention some, I got 30s memo/cube on a 2 cube attempt (2 passing, no 3bld cube, for reason stated in previous parentheses), 36s memo/cube on 4 cubes and am still struggling to get lower than high 40 memo/cube on 8 cubes. I definitely believe that this is a big step in the right direction, as this will remove the wasted time on unnecessary reviewing. It's important to note I was very capable of recalling all the memo at high speeds for the above mentioned attempts and similar ones.

I've also FINALLY expanded my room collection, using Black Ops 2: Zombies maps (the Tranzit route) as a palace. Have only made and tested 32 of them, but I expect to end with around 56 rooms for the entire route. This will obviously help me in doing a lot more attempts without having potential memo problems, as I plan on getting on a loose schedule for big attempts.

Big changes, lots of new things to get use to, but I believe ultimately they will all aid me in progressing further in the event. As my exams are coming to an end, I am spending some time each day doing some 3bld (which I have dropped to mid-high 30s from high 40s in a very short time!) and some smaller multi's. Hoping to be back to 30 cubes (where I left off a bunch of months ago) very soon, and I expect swift progress to near 40 cubes.

Stay well, happy blindsolving!

Amazing attempt by Rowe!
The 70 cube attempts are amazing to watch, R' F E F' R2 U F E' F' U' R'.

The score was 62/70 over the hour, and it was 58/70 sub-hour or 46 points WCA style.



Rowe nearly got the WB for 1-hour MBLD again, missing out the mark by 35 seconds.

Final score: 63/70 in 1:00:02 (56) [66/70 in 1:00:35]

17.83 seconds exec per cube which is UWR for 60+ cubes attempt.

Amazing result, r' U S U' R2 U2 S' U' M' U' R'!

Again an extremely long break between multi attempts, last one was probably at the beginning of the year (if ever); since then, I switched to a new corner buffer and had many breaks between BLD practice sessions...
Still 11/11 in 28ish minutes, no execution mistakes. I still don't know how consistent my practice will be but I still can do it. Memo was terribly long and slow though :rolleyes:

My second 3 cube attempt was a success!
3/3 in 25 minutes!

It should have been around 10 minutes faster, but I completely forgot some part of the memo in a second cube. I knew which 4 targets pieces I am missing so I started brute forcing all possible letter pairs and it took me more than 10 minutes but I eventually found the right letter pair and managed to finish the cube. I was quite surprised to see that all cubes were solved.

The main reason I try these 3 cube attempts is that I want to have at least one 3BLD success at my upcoming comp so to battle competition nerves I want to make 3BLD feel easy ;)

I think I really start liking MBLD :)

I felt that I have capacity and went for 6 cubes.
First attempt was 3/6 in 40 minutes.
Failed cubes where off by 1 edge flipped, 1 edge flipped and 1 edge 3-cycle resp.

Second attempt was 6/6 in 45 minutes. Yay! And I still remember all cubes from yesterday so I feel I might try more next time but I'm running out of good cubes :/

That makes me think of something. Is it WCA legal to have different cubes in MBLD, like you could have a Valk, 2 Qiyi Ms's, and a MFJSRS3M2020?
