Hi I wanted to make a thread like this for so long
Now I have made one
This thread will get deleted when I eventually reach sub-10

I'll be updating it every 3-4 days with my progress

This thread will serve as a kind of motivation for me to practice
Will start updating it from tomorrow.

What do you average? Maybe we can collab for this thread instead of me creating another thread myself. (I really don't want to steal your credit. I just had this idea myself and I don't want to create another thread and get a lot of "this is useless don't do this" comments.) Sorry if I offended you and this is just a proposal.

Hi I currently average around 22-23 and sure you are welcome to collab with me.
No problem

@PetrusQuber @Skewb_Cube @Cubing Forever If you guys could post something instead of just liking my post that would be helpful thanks.

I average 13 seconds. A few months ago i was averaging about the same as you: just about to get sub 20. My advice would to learn 3 look last layer (2 look OLL and 1 look PLL), figure out which F2L cases you feel like you solve inefficiently/rotate too much on and look up an optimal alg (http://www.speedcubedb.com/a/3x3/F2L is a very good source), and try to predict the whole cross every solve. Good luck!

Very nice! I averaged 20 a month ago, and now average 16-17. I didn't learn any algorithms other than 3lll, but watched more f2l cases from jperm. Are you averaging 13 w/ full oll?

I know full OLL and PLL, as well as a good chunk of COLL. I don't consider most F2L cases to be algs, but I know all of it too, as well as a good chunk of advanced F2L cases (different angle algs, cases where either the edge or corner is in a wrong slot, etc)

I think my biggest weaknesses are cross to F2L transition, and lookahead. But yes I average low 13 or even sub 13 on a good day

I recommend jperm's vid on lookahead, dropped me 2 - 5 seconds.

For a good cross to F2L transition, your cross has to be good first.
I suggest trying to see your cross in inspection, or at least plan it out, so when you start the solve, you can execute the solution like an algorithm, and not need to look. This means you can focus your attention on the coming F2L.

Ok, I'll be reviving this now again.
