This was very nice, solve 2,3,4 were very close to each other.
At the end I got bad times :(

I got a new ao5 (not during this ao12, it's a 4.13 ao5, which is really nice. I have the comp in 31 days)

MoYu Magnetic Pyraminx
Intuitive L4E

3.76, 3.18, 3.28, 3.81, 2.92, 2.86, 2.77, 3.96, (4.77), 2.90, (2.58), 3.23 = 3.27 average

Decent for me, but I fumbled a lot. Definitely could've been a low 3 if I were warmed up.

L4E's something I feel like you should learn once you understand it. It's an intuitive method, so you should really be able to figure most of it out on your own once you know the basic structure. L4E is a better method than LBL for many reasons (more efficient, gives you more options, pretty fingertricky, etc.), so if your goal is to become world class, it's definitely something you should learn if you want to stick with a V-first method. If you just want to be good, but not necessarily world class (5 second average or so), LBL will work just fine with practice. :)

Hey DG I've been meaning to ask you this for awhile related to improving L4E solves.
So averaging around 4.3-4.5 now, my solves are quite efficient (far from perfect). I feel like that now, efficiency isn't really the problem for me to getting faster (still helps), but I think that orientation and rotations have a massive effect on my times, but a lot of people don't mention or talk about that . More specifically, I start the solve in the position where the future V will be on top, as I do the V, I do a rough x' so that the L4E edge in bottom layer is clearly visible on the top of Pyra and then finish rotating moving into a fast L4E. In my opinion this can sometimes be a bad habit. I've noticed that you generally create your V while facing it, then you kinda do an x' for L4E.

Do think orientation/rotations have an effect on solves (mainly lookahead), if so, do you have any tips on doing the solve relating to this topic?

Thanks in advance for a reply :)

Okay, I started learning L4E, since I average ~5.7 with LBL (which is very fast when you think about the fact that I do Pyraminx for about 20 weeks now, but that doesn't matter tho lol). I average ~6.2 seconds with L4E without turning the tips. I am really struggling with finding where the "V" pieces needs to go. I am searching.. How can I improve that?
