Nope, just drill the CLL/EG-1 algs. The scrambles will give you a premade layer/face.

Don't use Jperm's lefty algs please. Can you post here what lefty algs you use and I'll give you alternatives. Of course, some algs are just best with lefties, but some definitely not.

I think his main issue is case recognition, not TPS

i can turn kinda fast on most solves, but because the YuPo V2 M is just really bad at corner cutting, I do lose TPS and get 4 fours :(

um you can watch his video or from his website (they are a lot to post)

should I learn the alternatives from the best 2x2 algs spreadsheet?

also I'll try not to post till friday or I will not be able to post anymore (the "maximum amount of posts in 24 hours" thing)

So now I'm finally buying lube, and i have decided weight 3. I'm not buying any TC lube as i don't wanna spend too much on just lubes

So how long will weight 3 last me if i use it on my 2x2-4x4 and square one?
Also should i even lube the yj MGC Square one with weight 3??

My new cubes just arrived!! I had ordered the MGC elite 2x2 and the MGC Square one on Thursday, and they arrived today! These are my birthday gifts, so i only get to open these on my birthday, but I'm still very happy

Btw i ordered from thecubestore.in and I'm really happy with their low prices :)

I have finally ordered lubes, and I ordered Weights 1 and 3

Weight 1 for 4x4
Weight 3 for 3x3 and other puzzles idk
Obviously this is just my prediction on what lube will be the best for each cube

as for the 2x2 and SQ-1, when the lubes arrive I'll try out the lubes on them and decide which lube to use on which

ok so I know I haven't updated in a week but here's what has happened

I have setup my square-1 with weight 3 and it is awesome. also I broke one of the yellow pieces while switching to black caps so somehow I did something and put in the black piece which mean i can't switch back to yellow again (because the piece is broken)

I also made an unboxing which i will probably upload on sunday idk

overall i don't think I will be updating this progression thread so yea

here's the progress i've made over the last 2 weeks

i've learnt intermediate cubeshape for squan, and i still need a lot of practice to become good with it
i have also been practicing 2x2 daily, and now I can one look 3 movers (only R U R' and R U' R' and also the lefty versions)
as for 3x3, i have also recently started practicing it

no updates for oh, bld and 4x4 because i didin't practice them

i hope to become sub-20 on squan by the end of this year
