close to quitting

Not to long ago I stopped cubing and have yet to really pick it back up again. I quit because I realized that I was really slow and needed to learn a new method. I immediately chose roux.:)fp)
To make a long story short, I rage quit.:mad:
Now I'm looking for a new method that is kind of easy and doesn't have a lot of algs.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!:p

You can do Roux with only 2 algs, the rest of it is intuitive, but I don't know if that counts as easy.
Petrus is a good method, you can solve the LL using only 3 algs.
You could use a direct Piece-by-piece solving method, like what you would use for Blind. You can use just 1 alg. (but slow)
The fewer algs you learn, the slower you will be.

It is easier to get fast with algs than intuition. Intuition takes time and develops by understanding concepts that are used in algs. There is not an easy shortcut to getting fast. As for an ok method, try CROSS,basic intuitive f2l, 2look OLL, PLL

It looks like you didn't give CFOP too much of a chance. Even if you don't know too many algs, you can still get faster using what you already know. You don't *have* to learn lots of algs to get fast, although it makes it easier.

Hey guys! I've been out of the whole speedcubing thing for the past couple years. I've been picking the cube up on and off (mostly off) a year ago and almost entirely off this past year. I left for a few reasons: not getting any better, not wanting to learn algs (so if I quit I don't have to?), taking too much time...

But here I am again. Back with a 22 second average of 5

Back Cubing!

After like 3 months :confused: ,it's holiday! So I'm back and still sub-20.
I've forgotten some of my PLLs but I'm working on them.
I used 2looks for my OLLs and still using my guhong.

Anything new now? Methods,cubes,WRs?

This is a very important year of studies for me,so I might take frequent breaks. Exams sux.
