Welcome to the Speedsolving.com, home of the web's largest puzzle community! You are currently viewing our forum as a guest which gives you limited access to join discussions and access our other features.

So, this is an ordinary progress thread where I'll update my weekly progress.

Averages:
3x3: 28
Method: Mehta
Main: Qiyi Warrior S

2x2: back to 6 (I forgot basically all of CLL and the EG 1 algs I knew so back to ortega)
Method: Ortega
Main: none right now, YuPo v2 M when It arrives

OH: 45-46
Method(To be): ZZ/YruRU
Method: Mehta

Questions:
What algset should I learn now?(I know full APDR since it's my main path)
First Block tips?

I think you should definitely learn L5EP first, and then slowly start trying to make sense of the EOLE algorithms without necessarily learning them. You should also slowly start considering the CDRLL path and see if that will be your default; or if you'll stick with 6CP.

For first block, you could use a block trainer, or even watch Roux tutorials and try to translate it to Mehta FB.

Thanks!!!
I finished 6CO 1 yesterday and coincidentally, the L5EP 3 cycles too!!

Will consider either CDRLL or APDR as default as the few APDRs that I know intuitively have always led to faster singles.
Or I'll stick to 6CP if the above two don't suit me.

6COLL can be done 2-look with only OCLL algorithms. I'd learn L5EP first(because it's a small set), then 6CP, then 6CO. EOLE can be done mostly intuitively.

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.

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

Also, sub 40 Ao5 Yay!!!

I have been using that alg as main too. I personally love it but everyone recommends either of the other three. I'm so confused about which one to use lol. Btw thanks yo

Goals for week 2 which starts tomorrow:
Change the below PLLs to OO algs:
U perms (RU to RUS)
V perm (standard to RUf)
Ra perm (RUF to RUD)
Finish L5EP.
Learn more APDR algs.
Some 1 look 6CP algs.
Take a look at CDRLL.
Sub 35.
Learn S and AS CLL.
Learn how to do homegrip B moves
Hopefully, LEARN YruRU CP TRACING.

(Note: I'll be updating averages in OP, goals, questions and progress in separate posts.)

Progress of week 1:
I got sub 40 global.
Learnt a few APDR algs.
Finished half of L5EP.
Relearnt H CLL.

My plan for week 2:
Take it easy, slow and steady.

Questions:
Should I keep R U R' U J perm... Na perm or switch to the OO one?
The YruRU tracing system seems confusing. Can anyone give a short overview of how it works?

Haven't updated in 2 days.
I switched my V perm to R' U R U' R' f' U' (Antisune) f R and I really like it!!
Ofc got last place on the mehta leaderboard lol. (I gotta improve xD)
I tried a bit of CFOP and surprisingly, I'm still sub 20 yay!!!
I also changed my Ra perm to the standard.
Didn't even look at the mehta algsheet bc of laziness. Will look it up tomorrow.
I hope to drop 5 seconds by the end of this week.
I will also change my U perms tommorow.
Learnt a few T CLL cases.
As Silky says, Catch you on the flip side!!

Well, not a lot of people in Mehta so far, so it doesn't sound that bad when you think about it.
I might try that V Perm also, I don't really like my current one
