# The "Request an Alg" Thread

It's not just how long the alg is, but ergonomics are a factor too. I can do triple sune faster than the RUL one because RUL switching isn't great when there's a better option.

Yes, I know, and I'm saying that I can execute the RUL one just very slightly faster than the RU one (for pure twist! I'm not comparing to triple Sune!) on average.

I can still do the RU pure twist faster. Give it a bit more drilling and see what you think.

I used to use the R U2 R' U2 alg, but switched to the RUL one (over a year ago? don't remember) after drilling them hundreds of times, so yeah, I've done that already.

does a square-1 method exist where you solve it like roux?

edit: nvm find it
although it sems a bit different than I would imagine... I thought cube shape would be reached when solving the top layer corners. not at the beginning

So I want to learn the same method and algs that Feliks uses to solve the cube because he is the most consistent speedsolver out there (even if he doesn't hold the single world record anymore (for now)). There is an answer to this question in Quora that mentions some of the methods but it seems incomplete. Also, I want to know exactly which algorithms Feliks does (for example this page has 3 different versions of the ZBLL algorithms). If anyone knows about this one can we make a list here?

You seem like a cuber with a set goal and a determined mindset. However, your quest to use the best methods and algs is a little concerning because speedcubing is something that relies a lot on personal taste. If you've been to a comp, you know what I mean. Lots of mains, setups, different taste in events...
That being said...
is Felix's official site with his algs and tutorials.

Thank you very much for the answer and advice! I haven't been to comps so I don't know much about that. Taking your advice in mind I'll try Feliks's algs to see if they are to my taste

You could just use commutators, i guess.

A main part of the fact that Feliks is the best is that he has been cubing for over ten years, but two places behind him in the average leader boards is an eleven year old who has been cubing for a much shorter time, and uses a different method. Try new things and stand out, don't just follow the leader wherever he goes, because he might lead you to a dead end. Take the roads less traveled by. But, its still your choice.

List of EOLR algs?
