algorithmic ep sucks (at least that is what cube master said)
only learn the easy cases
Algorithmic ep does not suck, and afaik every top squanner knows it. You might have been looking at an outdated video or something, since the event has evolved over the years and cubemaster has changed some of his opinions.

it does not suck, but for slo ppl like me, doing it intuitively is the best option. i dont want to learn 100 10 slice algs to shave 2 mere seconds. i would rather learn intermediate cubeshape.

Squan improving so much.

Day 1 PB: 1:17.05
Day 2 PB: 55.16
Day 3 PB: 39.36
Day 4 PB: 39.36
Day 5 PB: 37.12
Day 6 PB: 31.96
Day 7 PB: 24.75

the 24.75 scramble: (0,2)/ (1,-5)/ (0,3)/ (0,-3)/ (3,0)/ (5,-4)/ (-3,-5)/ (-3,-3)/ (4,0)/ (5,0)/ (4,-1)/ (4,0)/ (4,0)
How many squan algs have you memorized? Also are they hard to memorize?

You should learn Scallop/Kite and Scallop/Scallop cases. Those are some easy stuff to learn how to solve into.
