Ortega is really easy to learn on 2x2, its only like 10 algs, provided you don't already know OLL from 3x3. I think you have a better shot of being sub 15 with roux, because it takes less tps, however, if you want to be sub-1 on 4x4 you are better off with CFOP because M slices suck on big cubes.

Roux works well on 4x4. I'd recommend a method like Meyer, which is like the "Yau4" for Roux users. M slices aren't an issue on 4x4 assuming you have strong enough inner magnets. wink wink mjs who mains ylm

On 5x5+ CFOP is definitely better, but honestly when it comes to big cubes having good center building and edge pairing skills is more important

Get the YLM or the YuSu v2 M. If you have the budget, spring for the MGC. I like the little magic the most though.
@DNF_Cuber please don't end me
Umm sadly I have a cube called fanasty cube and it is very bad , but ...... I cant buy another one because there is no shop can ship for my country.
And if it does it costs alot , and we have to pay in $ not our own currency.
And we dont have $ in our country bcz no one use it

why did you switch???
I dont find many people using roux to learn from ....
Most of people are cfopers , so I thought it is easier that roux , but for real it is too much harder ....
And also other reason for using cfop it that I'm learning new methods every period I get bored

BUT ROUX STILL MY MAIN METHOD
