I dunno if this will help as you seemed to have already learned the method. But i have recently posted a video on roux.I started cubing about 3 weeks ago, never learned the beginners method, watched some one at the airport solve with the Roux method and he showed me how to do it, after a few tries I was able to get it by myself. I started out with an average time of 3 minutes, 3 weeks later I'm averaging right above 40s.. My slowest time is block building on average 20-25 seconds to finish both sides, I've moved pretty far in 3 weeks, i do on average 2-300 solves throughout the day if I can, a lot more on weekends. Any suggestions to help with block building? or should i just keep practicing with trying to look ahead and plan blocks?
Do you mean how y perms + j perms affect pieces so you can predict your EO case? If so you should learn that, it isn't that hard but you should also learn CMLLs (start with H it is easy recognition) but for cases where you don't know the cmll you can at least predict the EO so you can save some timefor instance Y-Perm (utation) but thanks for the feedback.
So, I'm trying to get sub 20.
Do you think it's better to learn CMLL or 2-look/Permutations?
SUB 20 = 4+5+3+6CMLL - You can sub-20 using 2 look corners (I know I can). So CMLL comes in last in importance. It's just algs and muscle memory. Easy Peasy.
Yeah, but I’m trying to do it as efficiently as possible, with making a 2x2x1 block and then adding a pair, and doing that well takes time for me. I’d say my first block on good solves is around 8 seconds. I know that I’ll get fast, but I want to utilize roux’s abilities to be efficient as much as possible.Ok. I dont think its to much really, because its just an edge, which normally only takes one move, and two f2l pairs, which are easier to insert and plan than in cfop.
If you do “CFOP style Roux” you’re missing the point IMHO - the whole point of Roux if efficiency - that might mean doing a CFOP style F2L approach for one solve or building a 3x1 or a 2x2 followed by pair in another whichever is more efficient.You do it your way, and I'll do it my way.
I am aware of that. I still am working on breaking bad CFOP habits since i only started Roux a week ago.If you do “CFOP style Roux” you’re missing the point IMHO - the whole point of Roux if efficiency - that might mean doing a CFOP style F2L approach for one solve or building a 3x1 or a 2x2 followed by pair in another whichever is more efficient.
Sorry, your first post didn’t make clear what your question was. anyway, just look here: https://sites.google.com/site/schweitzerpatrick/getting-sub-20-for-noobs-using-roux or here: https://wafflelikescubes.webs.com/sub15guidetoroux.htm . They are quite similar, but both will work.So what are some good goals for me if i started roux a week ago, no one has answered my question really.
