Dw about the times tbh, just chill there
My times were so far from my average when I competed a year and a bit back, even though I was one of the only people who warmed up
Thanks, now the competition is over and I placed 122nd out of 1073 people, it made me lose hope for some time because no matter how good I am, there will be so many people ahead of me

The aim of a competition isn’t to beat others (it’s almost impossible to be no.1 lol), but to try have fun and beat your own times.

You don’t compare to others, but to yourself (also you still beat 90% of the cubers there)
Was it an online competition?

Yes, it was an online competition. I googled online cubing competitions and found this site called cubelelo.com and u can also buy cubes there, but it seems they have a competition ever month

MY FIRST COMPETITION (ALMOST) WIN!
so a few days ago I went to a competition totally nervous and when I got there, i was still nervous but, I made some new cubing friends! anyway so when I was there I saw that most people's times were more than mine ( sub 30's sub 50's etc) and some people kept on greeting sub 10s. My main goal was to get top 10 and I DID! I got 7TH PLACE WITH A 21.92 AO5 AND MY BEST SOLVE THERE WAS A 17.91. Oh boy I have never loved my QiYi MS this much ever before

"Well folks it's been a while but Shrek, yes that's right, Shrek has finally returned, and it looks like he's going to put on a fine game for us. But what's this? Charles this is worse than I could have that possible. This ogre, once a cubing legend is now doing this plastic shape in 40 seconds, that hardly competes with the novices!"

C: "That's right Wesley and to think he was once on his way to sub-20, do you think he can rebound and get there?"

"I don't know Charles but it looks like The Epic Cuber is offering to coach him, can this be it? Will he get back up and show the crowd what he once was? As we know The Epic Cuber is well below 20 seconds, I wonder if he can be successful in retraining a legend?"

C: "Only time will tell Wesley, it's been nearly 1/3 of a year. Can a cuber, even the great Shrek, make such a recovery after so long a time? We'll be back after this short commercial.

I can help you get faster if you want. I got all the PLL algs and can break them down to you if you need just DM me if you want that to happen. Thats how I was able to memorize alot of algs.
Could you help me with learning some of the PLL's, I am currently missing Nb, Aa, Ab, F, V, Ra, Ga, Gb, Gc, Gd.
