Hello everyone who sees this thread. The name's Guy, AceTheGuy. I'm Nigerian and I've been cubing on and off for around 4 years since 2018. I did the basics, learnt beginners method and got good with it. I should have made this thread a lot sooner but I ignored it.

Currently, my main method is CFOP and I currently average around 16 secs and my PB time is 10.56. The NR for my country is around 8 secs and I would like to hold the record in my country; I'm so close yet so far.

I've been watching J-Perm Vids on how to be sub-15, so I guess ill start from there. I know full OLL and PLL, I still have to learn the right fingertricks so i can be faster at those. I think ill also learn some more advanced algorithms when I average sub-15, I'm stopping myself from learning them now so I can learn full F2L for all slots.

I also plan one becoming an all-rounder for all the events.

Wish me luck!

He's a breakdown of an 11.86 solve I got today

Scramble F' U L2 U2 F2 R2 B' L2 D2 B2 D2 B' U' L2 R' B' R' F' U'

OLL

PLL
E perm, Started the E Perm at 10 secs

AUF U'

Some things I should point out
-My main cube is the Qiyi Warrior S (yeah, it's old, i know)
-Generally, my solving breakdown is 3 secs cross, 10 secs F2L and 4 secs LL
-I already learnt some advanced algs like VLS and Winter Variation when I first averaged sub-20, so sometimes I use them in my solves but I've decided I shouldn't learn more

My main problem is that right now, I don't know what area I should focus on to improve.

Do you always do cross on top?
If yes, try doing it on bottom: this saves you a rotation and a pause, and helps look ahead

I thought I couldn't update this thread because my laptop got bad, so i thought i couldnt use CSTimer, then I remembered CSTimer wasn't an app, it was a website. anyway, I couldn't do the Ao12 yesterday, here's today's one

The thing that takes longest for me is F2l, so I have to work on that, mostly rotationless. I already know Intuitive F2L but I rotate a lot,

I've been working on rotationless F2L, I don't think I'm even close to half yet. I watched Brian Sun's F2L guides, and I learnt a lot, haven't fully mastered all of them though. I have also been working on solving slower so ican see the cube properly and focus.
Today's average was sub-15, maybe if I keep it up I can officially say that I'm sub-15

I couldn't work on F2L last night cus I had church today, so I worked on the cross. I never bothered about cross because I knew the basics and I would always do it the same way, with the same time, 3 secs,so I decided to work on it today. In the solves, the ones where I bothered to plan out the cross I commented Cross Solution and I have to day the times are better than the solves she I winged the cross. I'll also try to work on that alongside F2L

I've been working on my F2L, I don't think I've made any significant progress though, ill still keep on working on that. Cross is no longer an issue for me since i worked on it.
My current splits should be Cross ~2 secs, F2L ~8 secs, LL ~4 secs
I still have a lot to work on

if anyone has any tips for me, they'll be greatly appreciated

Just barely sub-15...

Holy cow i just got a 9

I couldn't make a Breakdown earlier because it was on Twisty Timer, but I know exactly how it was, PLL Skip from OLL 11

Okay, here's the breakdown:

9.78 - R2 B2 L2 U2 L2 R2 F D2 L2 B U2 L' R' F R B F D B2 U B2

//Cross
z2 D' L D' F R' F D' (Accidental xCross)

//Pair 1
R' U2 R L' U L

//Pair 2
U R U' R' U' R U' R' U R U' R'

//Pair 3
R' U R U2 f R f'

//OLL
U r U R' U R' F R F' R U2 r'

AUF U

I wrote accidental xCross there because I didn't plan the Red Blue pair, at the end of the cross it was solved and I didn't check it but i knew it was solved because the Red/Yellow and Blue/Yellow cross pieces were on the R face when I was done with the cross.

I've been working on my F2L, I don't think I've made any significant progress though, ill still keep on working on that. Cross is no longer an issue for me since i worked on it.
My current splits should be Cross ~2 secs, F2L ~8 secs, LL ~4 secs
I still have a lot to work on

if anyone has any tips for me, they'll be greatly appreciated
Looks like you should work on cross and F2L the most from your splits, as you will then be able to finish F2L sub-10 consistently. Think about fingertricks during your cross, and practice doing your cross without looking as it will give you a much better cross to F2L transition.
For F2L, improvement comes with time, and the only tip I can suggest is to find the fastest turning speed that is still slow enough for a (practically) pauseless F2L.
Also, a good idea might be to add ao100/ao1000 to your cstimer stats table so you can gauge your progress.

There will always be that 16sec solve, still cant get rid of it.
In other news, I have also been practicing 4x4, I wasn't going to make a Progression thread until I hit my 3x3 goal, but for 4x4, I broke my PB Ao12, which is fun. If I'm going to make a progression thread for 4x4, it's gonna be for Sub-40, since my PB time is 1:03.33. But I can comfortably say that I'm sub-1.30 .

Concerning the poll, when I reach sub-10, I plan on learning VLS, COLL and ELL, not to use them in a particular method, but just to have a general knowledge of it. OLLCP is really cool too, like COLL but for all OLL cases. My only issue is that there's so many freaking cases

I just broke my 4x4 Single PR to 59

It may not seem like it but im freaking out rn
