Went from averaging 2:30 to 1:50 in 3 days, it's not outstanding but it's decent progress. I'm still learning 4LLL, I know some of the cases well, but I still use commutators for corners. I'll still learn some more algs. I also plan on learning all the EPLLs, I think there's only like 10 of them.

In case anyone was wondering, these are the barriers I need to achieve to get NR average for all events., I'm not going for singles.

2x2 - Sub-3
3x3 - Sub-10
4x4 - Sub-45
5x5 - Sub-1:20
6x6 - Sub-3:10
7x7 - Sub-5
3BLD - Sub-30
FMC - anything lmao
3x3 OH- Sub-15
Megaminx - Sub-1:00
Pyraminx - Sub-7
Skewb - Sub-7
Square-1 - Sub-30
4BLD - Sub-2?
5BLD - idk

Will I learn 4BLD and 5BLD? idk. For FMC, I wanna blow it out of the park so there won't even be a contest again, maybe like sub-30 single? For Megaminx, the current average is 1:07 but I want to make it sub-1.

Went from averaging 2:30 to 1:50 in 3 days, it's not outstanding but it's decent progress. I'm still learning 4LLL, I know some of the cases well, but I still use commutators for corners. I'll still learn some more algs. I also plan on learning all the EPLLs, I think there's only like 10 of them.
How did you improve so fast by just switching a method lmao

'The thing about Westlund, Cuberstache said it, and even Faz said it, when you have an order in whcih you solve pieces it becomes very easy to lookahead and that's why I switched. I also got used to solving it by doing multiples solves. I still have a **** ton to improve tho, I'm aiming for sub-1 at the end of the year (impractical, I know). Also I improve at events very fast, I got sub-10 Skewb in one week. And this was one week after I got a 2x2.

yooo I haven't been on ssf in a long time, awesome to see another African here. I see you also have a similar goal, I'm looking to go for SoR/kinch for South Africa

It's been awesome to read through this thread and see your progress. I'm looking forward to seeing more!
Honestly looking at your goals everything seems super achievable so I'm sure you will pull it off! Only super hard ones as far as I can see are 3bld and 4bld but that's only because Ehikhuemen is an absolute beast at bld. I'm excited to see what improvement is in store for these events :D

So I broke my 4x4 PB today to 40.22 but I tried the scramble again and found out it was a misscramble🥲.
anyway, 14 solves later I got this, my first ever sub-40 solve, feels good.

I'm going on a trip tomorrow (today technically since it's already 12) so I'm gonna be less active on here. I'll bring my 3x3 and Megaminx along so I'll have something doing.
Also, a new competition just opened (thanks @DynaXT for letting me know) and I would really like to attend, if I haven't already left for the UK (only thing that's stopping us from going rn is my sister, who's just graduating high school and the Visa interview. Asides from that, all's good). So if I'm still around then, I'll definitely attend.
