@BenChristman1 thanks for the critique. I started to predict OLL for easy scrambles. It does take more than 15s but my times have dropped by half a second!!

Glad that it helped! I hope your times keep dropping that fast!

I was a bit inactive for the past few days but that was due to some pending school work and tests. Hopefully, I've sorted it out and it's back to grind and algs again!!

That being said, here are some updates:
3x3: 21.23 ao100
OH: switched back to Mehta because I'm sub 1 with it and LEOR is frustrating. I'll learn YruRU when @CuberStache makes an updated tutorial.

an update:
So, I'm averaging 19.3, which is ofc better than my CFOP average of 19.5-19.7 after this 3 month grind and man, I'm super burned out. So, I decided that I'll take a break from grinding 3x3 and focus on making quality YT vids, learning algs, OH and 2x2.
Speaking of my YT channel, I'll post all my future YT vids here instead of my YT channel thread since that thread is not gaining any attention.
Anyway, here's a video that I made a few days ago:

I finished half of L5EP. 2 more 2e2e cases and the 5 cycles are left. Right now, I'm using algdrill.jonatanklosko.com to drill algs. It allows us to create new drills for custom algsets and has a simplistic UI.

Questions:
YruRU or LEOR for OH?
Should I use the RUF, old school or RUD Gc perm? (Old school: R2 u' R U' R U' R' u R2 f R' f')


Also, I got a 27.something a few days ago. :D

Mehta sucks for OH. That's why I'm choosing either LEOR or YruRU. #Nobig3
(lol)

Also, sub 40 Ao5 Yay!!!
