@Micah Morrison and @Owen Morrison both use milliseconds. I think I honestly might switch to doing that as well. Way more accurate. And imagine beating the world record at home and you do it in milliseconds as well. . .it'd be pretty POG
The WCA doesn't even record milliseconds and it isn't really much more accurate. It doesn't bother me that you do it, I just find it pointless.

EDIT:

Real average:

Don't expect to only improve by doing timed solves though. It really doesn't help to do as many timed solves until you get to like Sub 10 I think. I just started getting serious about competition simulation that way I will be prepared for my first comp. I average 9 now, so by the time comps start, I would be used to the pressure. Think about it like that. Do you use timed inspection?

i dont use timed inspection, and I did the ao100 because I wasn't sure what i really averaged, and it turns out I was sub 27.

Do you plan what position your first pair is going to be in/ That could help. And once you get good at that, you could plan the orientation as well
no, i just do the cross in around 3/4 seconds and then find the pair, but for sub 20 im planning to do cross + 1 and lookahead, which i havent learned yet

Planning first pair helped me drop about 3 seconds when I averaged 17 seconds. I was also learning to look ahead around that time
