I believe you later corrected yourself to mean top first.What's the fastest tips first method?
I believe they mainly use L4E, yes.I heard at worlds that L4E is the most used method now, is this true or are there still top 5 solvers that use top first? And which is the current "best" brand/model?
I also wanted to know the answer to this, so I messaged my boy Kerry Creech for some advice. He told me he does ring pushes for l' and r, and for r' and l he does a sort of table abuse by picking up the pyraminx by its r and l tips but letting the b tip rest on the table/whatever he's solving on. However, he said that he doesn't really solve the b tip, instead solving it from another angle as if it were an r or l tip.So I average about 3.5-3.9 using L4E, and I usually solve one or two tips at the beginning of my solve. However, I always practice on stackmat, and I struggle with picking up the pyraminx and doing the first and/or second tip quickly if it is anything but a u move.
When I occasionally practice on keyboard (thus removing the problem of picking up the cube) , my average is nearly sub 3, so it is a big problem for me. Is there a way I can fix this, or is it just because I use stackmat?
Just do a bunch of slow, untimed solves. Try to track one piece at a time. Try to go through the solution in your head. Don't worry about holding yourself to 15 seconds. When I started learning to 1-look Skewb, it took me a full two minutes to find the solution.I need some tips on 1 looking using top first. I probably already know 1 looking top and orientation of centers. I want to get sub-5 so 1 looking would be nice
Yeah, 1-flip isn't really the most popular. But the thing is, it follows the principles of most top-first methods. Fingertricks are relatively the same. And the idea behind them all are mostly congruous.Am I the only one who feels like there are 3-4 tutorials for The method I am looking for
Like when I needed to learn 1 flip
I didn’t find a lot or really good tutorials
not hating but I even thought about doing tutorials myself
Then I remembered I am really bad
Thanks, this helped, but you should also add that you have to take note of the tips since they decide if a side can be yellow or not. Right?There will be 4 center things on your pyra.
1. choose a colour (e.g. yellow)
2. find the center that doesn't have yellow
3. turn it so that that center is at the back.
4. turn the yellow centers so that they are on the same face
Tips can be moved. If I twist one of the tips with yellow on it so that blue is in the front, the color of that side is still yellow.Thanks, this helped, but you should also add that you have to take note of the tips since they decide if a side can be yellow or not. Right?
May someone share resources for solving the centers fast?
Or methods of moving center pieces around to build centers?
I just got a pyraminx and I'd like to start learning the algs for this, since I don't really know how to solve centers other than experimenting with the pieces.
