@PetrusQuber how often do you rotate (or do a wide d move) in solves now?
I recommend working on that if you want to improve!
its basically always optimal to solve block in back in my opinion, instead of having to do a double rotation the ergo might be worse for some cases but its worth it to not rotate an extra time.
to help with this also try looking ahead to the extention while doing 222, and finding 1-2 of the pieces position in inspection, this will also help you be able to do 223 in inspection in the long run

I agree. When I played with Petrus I also found it to be best to build the block into the back.

yah I used to basically do block from any direction (including front) when I started,
than I was like "oh front is bad"(averaged around 15 seconds?)
so id only do block on left,right or back
but than I AGAIN realized "block on side is bad" (R/L)(averaged around 12-13? seconds)
for a multitude of reasons

I rotate a few times in each solve, mostly because I’m not comfortable with solving the 2x2x2 directly into back, or I do block on left for 2x2x3 in the heat of the moment.

Yeah I know it’s something I need to work on, and in general I’m focusing on 2x2x3 in inspection at the moment, as I believe that’s a pretty key thing even without the rotation benefit

I mean I was sub 10 without inspecting 223, so i really think that's more of an issue but whatever you think will help you most

Have you looked at Yellow Bird and EBBP from the first method development competition, and if you have tried them, how fast did you get? I think that they both look really fast, and I want to hear an opinion from someone whom uses a method that starts with a 2x2x2 block.

yah I dont like either compared to petrus.
Yellowbird is like mainly restricted freefop which I dont like the sound of there is obviously now a more optimized ls/ll for this method which is nice though.
EBBP is EO222 first and EO222 is horrible
also if your :OO: petrus starts with a 223 not 222

Been a long time... Could you refresh me on what those are?
