What if they are valid arguments? I'm not trying to say Petrus is bad.
They can be valid arguments, no problem. You just gotta counteract them with one of Petrus' strengths. There is not a single method that is perfect, except the memorize-all-quintillion-cases-and-algs method.
But that method is impossible anyway. Every method has its ups and downs. For example, Someone points out that petrus has a weakness, which it probably has, and says that CFOP is better. But that doesnt mean instantly its better. CFOP has a weakness, for example like it has long algs in oll and pll and has alot of cases. You get my point.

The two people who voted no both had less than 40 messages lol, and aren’t active
I do read the forums quite often, I just don't really post much. I do think petrus can get decent times (sub 8 is definitely possible), but I think it is not as good as other methods because of the EO step being in the middle of the solve. To me it does not seem worthwhile to have to recognize and solve EO and only make the last two pairs + LL slightly better, although I may be wrong. Last two pairs without EO can be done very quickly and with no pauses.

EO in the middle is not that bad, you can execute and recognize EO really fast, also, look at LEOR.

@Owen Morrison is reacting with eyes up to your posts because you guys are being very immature and making pointless posts that took no thought. Please be professional and add something of value to the current discussion. This is a forum, not a chat room, and spam posts like the ones in this thread are against the rules. Also....

This is really rude, @Owen Morrison knows perfectly well how to read. This kind of behavior is unacceptable.
you always come to ruin the fun

leor only works if you plan FBEO which is hard
