Can someone tell me why I get a Nb perm (which I don't know) about every four solves, when it should only come up once every 72.

Because you're exaggerating and had an unlucky streak of solves

r' D' F r U' r' F' D r2 U r' U' r' F r F'

Yes, I know. I'm more likely to remember the solves where it comes up now that I've thought about it. Just more disappointed with myself than anything.

Oh, that looks quite fun actually, might try that one.

I finally have a reason to learn an actual Nb alg instead of mirroring Na

don't judge bro I just hate learning 3x3 algs (squan algs are better for me)

For Two-Sided PLL Recognition U perm how can I tell where the 3 bar is without looking at any other sides?

Look at the way the corners line up with the F2L
AUF wasn't the right thing to use. Is there a way to tell where the 3 bar is on the hidden two sides

How do you convert a 2e2c into a 3c without algorithms?

What does S stand for? I know E stands for equator and M stands for middle, but I have never heard of S.

Whatever color you don't see while looking at it from an angle without the bar in view is the bar color, then find the opposite colored corners, and you bar will be on the opposing side.

Would inserting an F2L edge while blockbuilding F2L to reduce TSLE case count be good? It takes probably 2 moves or less more for me on average.

I average around 40-50 seconds with the Beginners Method. What should I learn first?
Intuitive F2L
2 Look OLL or
2 Look PLL

I don't think last layer is as important as F2L. I average sub-18, and I don't even know 2-look OLL. (I'm too lazy to learn the finished cross cases.) I would definitely work on F2L, as that's the part of the solve that takes up the most time, and that I think most people struggle with.

Is there any way to create algorithms on the fly apart from commutators? Some people mentioned it to me but I haven't though of a way to do it.

I've long been using this alg for Ub perm for a long time: R2 U F B’ R2 F’ B U’ R2

But most people seem to prefer this one: R2 U R U R’ U’ R’ U’ R’ U R’

Should I switch algs for U perms, and if so, why?

I'm inclined to stick with the alg I know since it has fewer moves, and I feel quite fast and comfortable with it, but there must be a reason most people seem to prefer the other one. The alg I'm using does require a y' rotation from the position where the other one would be performed. Is one position more likely than the other after OLL?
