A classmate just told me that the cutoff for 4×4×4 at Singapore Open dropped from 70 seconds to 60 seconds…

I'm guessing it's not possible to improve by ten seconds in two days, RIP.

Just hope you get lucky on the first 2 solves.

Also 1:40 5x5 cutoffs wow, what is UWR for hardest 5x5 cutoff?
Lol yeah, I'll try. I think the cutoffs are quite a bit stricter than "usual" cutoffs because last year's comp was quite far behind the planned schedule.

i just realized
my 3BLD times are roughly double my 3x3 times

I'm sub 30 3BLD and sub 15 3x3
and my 3BLD pb is 18.86 while 3x3 is 9.42
pb av5 is low 25, while for 3x3 it's low 12

46.27 4x4 average and 1:22.31 5x5 single, which was PB by 6 seconds. And FMC single I guess since I have never done a proper FMC attempt with all WCA rules at home.

Is anyone else annoyed by the fact that almost every single youtube cubing video has crappy EDM playing the whole time, be it a solve or a tutorial or even background music. And if the video doesn't have music playing during the video itself, you better believe there'll be a 10 second intro with EDM blasting in your face.


Does anyone have any channel reccomondations that don't do this? I'm slowly getting back into cubing and recently have been lurking around the youtube cubing community (wow things have changed haha)

Mine doesn't but there's only one video so it might not be of much use (just snarky and sarcastic captions)

Kavin and Kian don't normally but they use roux so may be of limited use.

My channel! I've been firmly against this since the start. No intros and no music and no rambling.

I don't know many channels that don't have intro music...why does it bother you so much? Do you just not like EDM?

This is one of the main reasons why I don't bother watching any cubing videos any more. I don't watch anything if there's a >5 second intro, and if there's music going on I also won't listen.

Try this Australian BigBLDer. He's the one that got me into this type of music and now I love it.
