PS this is not a Cubicle vs SCS debate
AHEM AHEM...
Can we get this thread going again?

I also would never take sponsorship from SCS until they do at least 3 things

1. Make superior products to every store out there

2. Make unique products that are actually good that haven't done before (PVC coating sucks)

3. Support the community more than every store out there.

TC Does all 3 of these better than SCS, and it shows. For every "New" thing that SCS has come up with, aside from the PVC coating, TC did an extremely similar thing months before, and that thing also is on par or better than SCS's "Innovation". Speaking of speedcubeshop, they haven't done basically anything big since comps stopped for the community to my knowledge. TC has been doing a lot of stuff like streams and being the main sponsor of [email protected]

As of right now, I would only take a sponsorship from 2 stores, The Cubicle, and Olivers Twisted Puzzles. OTP is a store local to my state and they are at pretty much every comp aside from PBQs, and they also sponsor most comps that are held in the area, providing covers, awards, and partial funding. I have benefitted greatly from both of these companies and I feel like the impact on the community from TC is better than SCS, and the impact on my local community from OTP is better than SCS.

lets stop now when he comes online i dont think he would like to see his thread clogged
I dont mind it at all, I'd honestly rather have people discussing literally anything in this thread than having it stay empty. Disscussion is very important, no matter what the discussion is.

Now, I'll talk about my CN progress.

So far I have 800 Solves in my CN session and I'm feeling very good about my progress.

My PB's in this session so far are quite good.

I'm starting to be able to see my 2nd pair after cross+1 which I plan in inspection.
I'm gonna do some more solves today and I'll update this thread around every 250 solves or when I get hit a milestone.

Not me lol I filmed one solve to show to @Nmile7300 and it happened to be a pb. I'm going to start grinding for real once I get my MGC
They have a dm together and I bet they all decided to grind 6x6.

I will join in the grind once I get my mgc.
Trust me, the MGC is godly. It will definitely make you enjoy the event more. It's also very easy to set up. I just cleaned out 100% of the pieces and added Traxxas 10k till I liked the speed. Any silicon-based lube would probably work but I used 10k since it lasts very long and has a good speed/control ratio.

We all "decided" to get PB singles, then we decided to grind 6x6.

Well, I just finished my first blue/green cross Ao1000. Since I'm moving on to do more 6x6 now I decided to grind out a few more solves before I started really grinding.

I am pretty happy with my improvment, and I'm only about a second slower on blue/green cross then white/yellow cross. Once I get some major progress on 6x6 I'll come back to this as my main focus, but I will still do some solves on this session here and there but not as much as I used to.

Well, I haven't done any solves since the last update due to football taking up most of my day, but now that my fall camp is over I should have more free time to start practicing again. 6x6 will still be my major focus and I will eventually move to 7x7 once I get my 6x6 avg to where I want it to be. I'm still doing square-1 from time to time but I don't think I will be focusing on that until its closer to western champs 2021, since its the only event I have a good shot at making the podium in. All of my 3x3 solves are now CN aside from red and orange so that went quite well, I'll eventually learn orange/red cross in the future but I don't think it will help me all that much in the events I'm good at.

I can't wait for you to get back. I've loved this progress thread you've made and I hope you DO get your White Jacket.

Nice! I've been taking a bit of a break from big cubes, but I'm going to being doing 7x7 soon, probably after OH and Megaminx.

Ya boy is getting something in the mail soon

The first one to guess correctly gets a leak of my next pfp, which will be active in the next 1-2 business days
I know I haven't updated the thread in a long time this is just a distraction
All jokes aside, I'm insanely busy at this time of year, so I'm not going to be able to be on the forums a ton or cube seriously, I'll be back in a while but for now, I'll probably just cube casually for the next month or two, depending on our playoff run it could be 3 months though. But school might calm down a little bit and I could get in a routine that gives me more time here. But just letting you guys know, don't be expecting much coming from me aside from a few posts here and there until November-ish.
