Round 25
Event: 3x3x3 Speedsolving (Method: Roux)
Cube: Dayan Guhong

number of times: 12/12
best time: 9.90
worst time: 21.45

current avg5: 16.75 (σ = 2.03)
best avg5: 16.34 (σ = 1.28)

current avg12: 16.07 (σ = 2.77)
best avg12: 16.07 (σ = 2.77)

session avg: 16.07 (σ = 2.77)
session mean: 16.00

Individual Times:
11.12, 17.15, 16.38, 16.65, (21.45), 11.87, 17.44, 14.94, 19.78, 18.94, 16.38, (9.90)

Haven't done an average in a while.
This one has lolconsistency. Not a very good average, but I got some nice singles in there (the two 11's and the 9). I believe the 9.90 solve is also my first ever sub-10 on a forum race. I've only ever had 8 sub-10's so far (I'm keeping track of every single one at the moment ;)).

I usually don't mind inconsistency, to be honest. Whenever I have an inconsistent average I tend to improve in my next...

Also, all my sub-10's ever have been in the last month... Then again, my first sub-20 average was in mid-July, which was last month.

And, yes, 9 and 21. Absolutely absurd. >.<

Same; I believe inconsistency is due to my slow turning, thus when I get lucky cases I exploit them, but when I get a bad case I can't turn fast to get it 'over and done with' if you know what I mean.
You're improving fast then if you only got sub-20 last month. Then again, that's when I also got my first sub-20 I believe. No, hold on, it was... Mid June?

Maybe I'll join this race. I've only gotten two sub-12 RAs of 12, and I don't think I could get another one for a while, but I'm gonna try to give another hard push on my 12.5-second plateau.

It's a little late to do an RA now. My parents might bite my head off if they hear me cubing at 2:00 in the morning.

Horrible start, oh well. I guess I will join this race since the sub-15 race hasn't been updated in a week or two.

Sorry for being a nub, but I haven't actually done this before, so I'm not sure if where I got these is a good place to get scrambles (it's the WCA scrambler).
Also - end date undetermined because I'm not sure if Xishem will take over again. I'm willing to continue it myself, though. Just be warned that I'm somewhat of a forgetful person. If I do take over, a new round will either start every Sunday or Saturday (undecided).

Edit: Scrambles seem somewhat easy, but okay. For now, just use those. If I find a better generator/someone points me to one, or if Xishem takes over again, then use those next round. For now, just use the above.

lmao I won??? kk gotta edit this post with solve times later :D
Well, you had the fastest times out of the submissions, but the point of this thread, as I understand it, is inward progress.
So: Not "beat the others," but rather "improve your own times to achieve a goal" (in this case, sub-12).

I only consider you to have 'won' once you've graduated and have consistent sub-12 times. ;)
But congrats anyway!

YESS THE THREAD IS ALIVE. I will do this sune-er or later... But it's a bit late to cube. Better be off to bed.

Edit: very very nice average phlippieskezer! You're improving extremely fast!
I had many sub-13 averages today. I hope to get it this round :D
