I stopped cubing for nearly 10 years, after 2 weeks of practice I improved my times, AMA
I had several south american records back in 2010, after 2011 took a break, went to one competition in 2013 and then I stopped completely.

With the quarantine I got into cubing again and I'm having a blast, the new cubes are amazing and it's really motivating seeing how I remember a lot of algs and my times are more or less the same as before taking the break.

I had quit for six years back in like 2014 I think before going in to college and pursuing other hobbies. Got back into it for quarantine and was kinda sad that I stopped cubing for so long tbh. I could've been schnasty :( But I am back now! (Back well over a month or two) and have already beaten a couple of my old PBs, so that shows promise!

I'm kinda in the same boat, my last competition was in 2013 but I stopped cubing in 2011.

All the new hardware is unreal, and the new records are too good to be true.

Bruh you couldn't have said it better. Magnetic cubes are insane. When I came back, I thought my 2013 cubes were still solid compared to what I thought they'd feel like. Two months later after getting some moyu gts2 4x4 and gts3 3x3, I am in heaven. Everything feels effortless in terms of moving. Crazy hardware. And the competitions look insane! Watching cubing national videos or worlds makes me feel like I am watching the super bowl or something

I think one of the things that impressed me the most was Max Park's relay video that he uploaded the other day, the way he solves 4x4 and 3x3, the cube screaming at 11tps, the dude's a fricking monster.

Here it is: I will quit pretending to love Gan and hate MGC just to get on people’s nerves

Like the title describes, I haven't been into cubing news for quite a while, so there's some new stuff that I might not know. Anyone cares to answer:
1. New 3x3 single? Yusheng Du? Who's that?
2. Speedsolving metas are still cfop, zz and roux?
3. Any new notable alg (sub)sets (3x3) in the past year?
4. Other notable news?
Thx guys

Yusheng Du was some Chinese cuber that few people have heard of who averages about 8 who just happened to come up with a really good solution that others didn't and got the world record with it.
Speedsolving metas are still CFOP and roux (and possibly ZZ)
I don't know of any notable alg sets.
other news: Cubers have realised that Gan just release the same cube with minor changes every few months, 6x6 hardware is no longer horrendous with the release of the MGC 6x6x6 and there have been no official Cubing competitions since march sadly.

WR for 3x3 ao5 is 5.53 by Feliks, Max Park close behind.
Flagship cubes for 3x3 are Gan 356 XS, Moyu Weilong WR M, Valk Elite, and Dayan Tengyun V2. Qiyi MS line very good for price, lots of good midrange cubes. YJ MGC line dominating bigger cubes, relatively cheap prices for good cubes all the way to 6x6, and soon 7x7. Customisation becoming the norm, interchangeable magnets and springs are usual in flagships.
