42.xx single, unlucky solve
LBL is my main method though, since I started cubing a month ago and due to exams I have no time to learn algorithms at the moment.

18-19, somewhere around there (forgot) when I did cross, 1st layer corners, 2nd layer edges, and 2 look OLL/PLL
That doesn't count. You used 2Look OLL and PLL.

2 look OLL PLL can be a beginners method. A slight variation of that was my beginners method, I just used niklas for cpll then 1 look 2 sune combos for ocll.

H perm

I think most people I've cubed in front of can back me up with this and say that I'm pretty fast with beginners haha. I average 25 seconds on a beginners method with an extra 3 algorithms for PLL i believe My best time is a 16.67 with this method

Average of 5:
38.57, 24.40, 28.92, 34.60, 30.93

worst time: 38.57

current avg5: 31.48 (σ = 2.88)
best avg5: 31.48 (σ = 2.88)

session avg: 31.48 (σ = 2.88)
session mean: 31.49

i used beginner method until my PB was 30 and my average was about 40 - 45

my best happened after finishing learning CFOP and i was teaching my friends the beginner method, so i decided to time myself with it and i skipped 2 steps (EO and CP) out of the 4 on the last layer.

and just to clarify it's the method Dan Brown teaches (cross, corners, 2nd layer edges, LL: EO, EP, CP, CO)

28 seconds.

Whoa you lot are fast using beginners'. I never got under 2.5 MINUTES with that (although my baaaaahaaaad cube likely didn't help at all hahaha)

S'dacuber, snot dacoob!
It's really all about look ahead and, well, tons of short cuts. Nonetheless, I doubt you average much over 120 moves. If you turn at just one turn per second you can already be sub-2 mins!

I recommend you do look at more efficient methods and blockbuilding. Not that they are two different things.

#### Kattenvriendin

Definitely doing that. But trust me, this WAS the cube back then. You had to hold one face, lift up the cubies around the center and then you could turn it. If you didn't it would get stuck instantly.

In this case: S'dacoob lol

Just did a few solves with Cross-Corners- F2l-4LLL, my best time was 27 with PLL skip, It's pretty hard rethinking some stuff during "F2L"

Couldn't remember as I haven't been using that method for ages, so I did a quick average of 12: 35.86, 33.36, 25.02, 32.64, 28.21, 33.29, 28.11, 31.31, 23.79, 25.31, 26.94, 28.77

Turns out my best time with the beginner's method is 23.79.

Do it for a joke at College and consistently get sub 22~ using Roux block layer, L4C then K4 F2L and ELL...

Using pure Beginners I could probably get 23 at a push although for now I will stick with Roux much more efficient

#### Eleredo

##### Member
much more efficient

So true. My fingers actually started hurting after 12 beginner method solves because of the awful amount of turns I had been doing.
