WEEK 1

Hey Guys, this is the progress i've made in 1 week so far:

2x2: Learnt 8 EG-1 Algs. It was easier as I only had to learn 4 for sune, and just mirrored them for antisune. Still main the YuPo V2 M, but looking for a better one. I know that the Valk 2 isn't available anymore (or atleast its hard to find) so I might choose between the MGC or MGC Elite. Which one should I consider buying?

3x3: Practiced a lot of lookahead, but I was focusing more on 4x4, so couldn't practice 3x3 all that much. But I have noticed when crosses are hard, I can't plan them in inspection. So this is definitely a thing I'm working on along with acheiving better Lookahead

4x4: Got my average down to 1:21, and I have gotten a lot better at 3-2-3 Edge Pairing, but the thing which I am struggling a lot of is lookahead during cross edges + when i'm pairing edges

Overall I can say no LARGE amount of improvement (ofc there's always room to improve) but still developed a better habit of looking ahead better, since earlier i used to think i have good lookahead but it was just really fast turn speed

I've seen a Valk 2 LM at cubezz, if you don't mind the weaker magnets.
I'd rather get the Mgc Elite, but only because I don't think that it has a cheap feel

A lot of people say that MGC comes amazingly ootb without any setup, although setup would improve it as well. You don't have to do it though, out of the box it's almost perfect.
Depends which MGC?
If the v1, then I'd say its corner cutting suffers even after setup.
If we talk about the elite.. Well, I can't say anything, because I haven't got my hands on it

OMG New PB by such a huge margin!!!! Finally Sub-1 Single letsgo :D
After I mademy F2C Literally 2 free cross edges were there + edge pairing was stupidly lucky.The only place where I messed up was 3x3 stage but there were such bad F2L cases. But still got a sub-1 with OLL Parity :)
