Sorry guys for not updating this thread! School has gotten way to busy, and cubing has been on the back burner. If any else wanted to take over this thread, that'd be great!

Hey @Aerospry, I'll try to (temporarily) run this thread while I still have some free time (although this may not be the case for long once uni + work kicks in).

Week 4 Results
I've recompiled the results spreadsheet to include only this year's race results to trim things down. Also I've only included members that appear to be currently 'active' in the race to make the spreadsheet a little less cluttered. Let me know if I've missed anyone out for if something was not entered correctly.

Click here for detailed standings.

I'm still actively trying to 'graduate', I haven't been posting times because I find it isn't that fun to compete when the chance of a graduation is low! Even (global) averaging around 16 seconds and often getting sub-15 Ao12's, I have found the chance of getting a sub-15 Ao12 on the exact string of scrambles is pretty low! I think I will join again when my global average gives me a better chance.

I've been participating in this race thread for quite a while now - since I was about sub-19 global, which is quite a way away from sub-15! I thought maybe the involvement will put me in a better mindset for improving - and it's fairly interesting otherwise to see how your weekly averages of 12 vary and notice improvement (or lack thereof!). But do feel free to join whenever you like, there's no real cutoff to how fast you need to be when you start!

Week 5 Results
All results for this week are now live! You can find the detailed standings here. Welcome to @Seaweed_Brain818 who has joined us this week!

By the way, just thought I'd mention that I'm no longer keeping track of what cube you are using for the race in the results spreadsheet, but I'm still documenting your method (because using a different method makes much more of a difference than using a different cube), but you may still include what cube you use in your post if you wish.

I don't see why not, you seem to be consistently sub-15 so go for it! But of course, you are welcome to continue posting averages here if you'd like.

All those 18's killed the average rip.
