Hey guys, I have decided I should change the name of this thread. I think that "Nmile7300's Progress Thread" is just way too generic and boring. So, I'm going to give you guys a choice. I am going to open up a poll on this thread with some options, and after 2 weeks I will change to whatever name gets the most votes.
Nmile7300's *Insert unoriginal name here* thread

Trust me, the clicks will come flooding in.

I will go ahead and save you by not making a 15 paragraph essay on why irony is the best form of humor but only in the hands of few.

I did an online competition today! It was organized by @Micah Morrison and @Owen Morrison. Here is how I did.

3x3 - 9.51 average: decent but I missed out on finals by just a few spots.
4x4 - 40.33 average: not great.
5x5 - 1:05 average: pretty good, and I got 6th place!
7x7 - 3:37 mean: great mean but everyone at the comp was super good at 7x7 for some reason LOL. Also 3:24 single which ties PB!
OH - 19.7 average: decent but I could have done better.
Megaminx - 1:11 average: very happy with this! It was super consistent, I got a 1:11.6 twice in a row LOL.


Thanks so much to Owen and Micah for putting on an awesome competition as well as @Humble Cuber for offering to stream last minute! I can't wait for the next one!

could you post scramble and solution please
I would be interested to see what you did
Ok sure. Keep in mind I am not that good and only know block building, EO, NISS and pseudo blocks. I will be learning skeletons and insertions next week probably.



------------------------------- Normal Scramble ----------------------------
R' U' F D R2 F' R' U' D2 B D2 R L' U2 L' U2 B2 L F2 L F2 U' B R' U' F

F' U' D' F' R2 F U R2 B R' - 2x2x3
L2 U2 L2 - F2L-1
L' B L U L' U' B' U L - OLL, this cancelled with the F2L-1 but I find that writing the steps together when they cancel confuses me so I didn't fix the L moves until I wrote my complete solution.
B' R B' L2 B R' B' L2 B2 U - PLL

I would highly suggest using this to practice insertions - take out the A-perm and do the AUF, and treat it as a 3c skeleton. If you're learning insertions, 3c is definitely the easiest place to start.

Week 4 is out! This week I will learn the basics of insertions and skeletons for FMC. I will also work on 4x4 and 6x6, since I mostly did 5x5 and 7x7 last week and I want to improve my 4x4 average a lot. I will continue to practice 5x5, 7x7, and Megaminx, but I will be more focused on the even layered cubes. I'm going to start setting weekly goals on this thread as I have seen some other people do that. Here are my goals for this week.
4x4 - Sub 38 ao50, at least 200 solves.
5x5 - At least two sub 1 singles, 1:05 ao50
6x6 - Maybe sub 2 single, sub 2:15 ao50, do 100 solves at least.
7x7 - Sub 3:40 ao25, maybe sub 3:20 single
Megaminx - Sub 1:10 ao12
FMC - Get a sub 35

I can't wait to improve some more this week!

Excuse me, WHAT? I JUST GOT A 30 ON FMC AND IT WAS MY FIRST ATTEMPT WITH INSERTIONS.
Well that was a quick sub 35
