Trying to get Skewb Sub-3 // Trying to get 5x5 Sub-1:40, Mega Sub-1:30, 3BLD Sub-2:00, 4BLD Sub-10, 5BLD Sub-20, and FMC Sub-30/35, to qualify for US Nationals this summer.

PB's, PB Averages, and Mains so far:

3x3: Tornado V3 M, 6.99 and 10.16.
2x2: YJ MGC Elite, 0.75 and 2.74.
4x4: MoYu AoSu WR M, 37.68 and 52.48. (The 37 was extremely lucky.)
5x5: YJ MGC, 1:27.71 and 1:49.64.
6x6: YJ MGC, 3:26.82 and 3:48.92.
7x7: YJ MGC, Low 7 and IDK the average because I hate the event.
3x3 BLD: Tornado V3 M, 2:00.033 and 2:16.66
3x3 FMC: Tornado V3 M, MoYu WeiLong WR M Maglev, and MoYu WeiLong WR M 2021, 29 and 39.33.
3x3 OH: MoYu WeiLong WR M Maglev, 17.86 and 24.67.
Clock: QiYi Magnetic Clock, 4.78 and 5.98.
Megaminx: GAN Megaminx, 1:36.78, and 1:42.57, (Planning to switch to the YuHu.)
Pyraminx: GAN Pyraminx M, 1.48 and 2.80.
Skewb: GAN Skewb Enhanced, 1.06 and 2.08, (It would be 1.06 but I also got a 0.9x from a comp on the forums. Also, the 2.08 average was also Pure Sub-3 )
Square-1: YJ MGC, 7.87 and 12.78.
4BLD: MoYu AoSu WR M, 17:32
5BLD: YJ MGC, DNF.
MBLD: Same cubes as FMC (Except the Tornado) Plus a bunch of Meilong's, 5/5 Cubes, (I didn't keep track of time.)

Decided to have a progression thread because pretty much everyone else has one.

I agree, because 2x2 is mainly about algs that are short and easy to memorize and pyraminx is definitely more intuitive, and requires a lot of thinking during inspection.

Just came back from the comp and got a 21:33 official solve! Slower than usual but I'll take a success. Also once I got the success Tommy Cherry congratulated me!

I just got a new 3BLD PB of 2:00.033. I would have been happy since that is PB by 20 seconds, but I was so mad that I was extremely close to Sub-2!
Scramble was B2 L2 D2 U F2 U2 B2 R2 D' F2 U' R' D2 F R D U2 L2 B2 D Fw Uw2
1 solved corner, 1 twisted corner, but no solved edges, however, there were no new cycles so only 16 pieces, and memo was easy.

Time List:
1. 3.45 B' R' B' U' B' L' U B' l r' b' u
2. (2.11) L' U R' B' U R U B b
3. 2.37 R L B U R' L' U L l b' u'
4. (3.98) L B' R' U' L B L B' l' r b u'
5. 3.70 B L' U L' U B U' L B' l r'

Lucky, considering these all had 4 move optimal V's or less, and the L4E cases were good, but I think I can definitely get a sub-3 average by the end of the week.

This week I have no school meaning I will be grinding 2x2, Square-1, Pyraminx, and Skewb.

I am in the process of learning EG-1, algs are easier than I thought they would be but still I will try and learn full EG-1 today, I have 24 more algs to go, but with Full EG I can one-look, and hopefully get a Sub-3 average for a comp I am going to on Saturday.

Just got a PLL Skip with this scramble:
R-- D++ R-- D++ R++ D-- R-- D-- R++ D++ U R++ D++ R++ D-- R-- D++ R++ D++ R-- D-- U' R++ D-- R-- D-- R-- D-- R-- D-- R-- D++ U R-- D-- R++ D++ R-- D++ R++ D++ R++ D++ U R++ D++ R++ D++ R++ D++ R-- D-- R++ D++ U R-- D++ R-- D++ R++ D-- R++ D-- R++ D-- U' R++ D++ R-- D++ R++ D-- R++ D-- R-- D++ U
Time was 1:27.683, which is pretty good. From my first post goal was to get Sub 1:30 to qualify for nats, and at this point I think it is doable.
