Hyped to see others learning.

I quit like three times because of school, kids, and work but I am back on and going full force. I also was genning algs for every case, learning OH alt algs, AUF and Y2 recognition while learning which made it slow.
I am only genning algs and learning ZBLL till done. Then I will get on the others.
I'll post my progress in here as well.

Done 2GLL and I know my COLLs plus the odd easy ones so my numbers look odd but I am at:

H: 40/40
Pi: 72/72
AS: 72/72
S: 31/72
T: 22/72
U: 33/72
L: 21/72
Total: 312/493

Just drilling algs till the second week of April and then moving on to Sune

Oh right this thread exists. I quit at like 200 since I lost motivation/time, plan on finish up ZBLL this summer though, and then start pondering with ZBLS. I currently know pretty much full U and T, and a lot of misc cases (mostly Pi and L though).

It's about a year since I decided to actually learn ZBLL, but I keep getting distracted. Anyway, I might as well post my progress here for the record. I will finish one day. I think I just need a structured plan instead of just learning random cases like I have been.

PLL: 21/21
U: 24/72
T: 23/72
H: 12/40
L: 12/72
Pi: 10/72
S: 4/72
AS: 4/72

Total: 110/493 (22.3%)
Or if I exclude sune and antisune cases, 102/349 (29.2%)

Who can learn all ZB/ZBLL algorithms the fastest?

Rules:

First choose if you want to compete in the race to ZB or to ZBLL.
Post your progress regularly.
Don't lie.

List of competitors for ZB:

Maarten Smit

List of competitors for ZBLL:

Brian Yu

My progress:

ZBF2L: 21/306
ZBLL: 0/494

Next that will be learned: I will finish VHF2L and then use it in my practise solving, when I have mastered VHF2L I will start with the no corner permutation version of the T-orientation. Then I will do the Basic ZBF2L.
Can you tell me the name of the website where you got zbf2l algs?

I've been skipping around throughout T, U and Pi, which I find the easiest to learn.
Full COLL, including sune/antisune.

ZBLL: 170/494 ~33%

Right Swap - 2/12
Back Swap - 12/12
Left Swap - 2/12
Front Swap - 12/12
Diag Swap - 12/12
No Swap - 12/12
Right Swap - 5/12
Back Swap - 4/12
Left Swap - 5/12
Front Swap - 3/12

Diag Swap - 12/12
No Swap - 12/12
Right Swap - 12/12
Diag Swap - 5/5
No Swap - 5/5

I posted it in the goals thread too, but I hope to finish U, T, L, Pi, and maybe H depending on how I find the recognition, before the end of this year, and then S/AS and H (if I didn't start it), by april 1st.

I'm walking this race at a pretty slow pace but I'm definitely still moving forward, so that's something.

Progress toward full ZBLL: 192 / 493 (38.95%)
Excluding Sune and Anti-Sune: 184 / 349 (52.72%)

PLL: 21/21 (100%)
U: 28/72 (39%)
T: 72/72 (100%)
H: 18/40 (45%)
L: 35/72 (49%)
Pi: 9/72 (13%)
S: 4/72 (6%)
AS: 4/72 (6%)

I stopped learning random cases and focused on finishing the T set. It's boosted my confidence massively. I'm going to work on U and L next, focusing in particular on the sets that are inverses of sets I already know.

We should revive this thread :)

I currently know 96 ZBLLs, which include all of Pi and 1/3 of L. In ten days, I want to have finished L. Then, I'll force myself to take at least a week or two off to practice, and then I'll start a 3rd set!
Ahhh I’ll race you, although you started earlier, so.., I‘ll start with T probably.
I’ll race both of you.

Oh gosh I've barely improved over the course of 2.5 years. iirc I did pretty well through 2017 but I know that I haven't been learning anything recently.

I haven't counted in a while but I'm somewhere around 300/494.
Let's see if I can finish by summer. I'll start finishing up my pi set again right now; I just have 3/4 of a set I learned but forgot and that set's mirror/inverse.

E: I found the algs I used because I lost my slip of paper with them. I have that and I still remember around half. Hopefully I can get them, at least weakly, in my brain over the weekend.

Then I'll finish the mirror set and start working on U/L. I literally have to learn 1 set, mirror, inverse, and mirror and inverse that set along with the inverses of other two mirror sets it to finish up both. Because I know pi, I can just learn the inverses for H. I think recognition is going to be the hardest part.
Then s/as
boom easy

E2: also I know that mirrors/inverses are generally a terrible way to go about it but I'm super lazy and this is better than coll/epll
its all about the bragging rights
