Happy new year everyone. Here are my mains, averages and goals heading into 2022:

3x3 - Tengyun v1 3x3, corner magnet modded and strong spring swap. Currently average 11 with ZZ. Goal: average 8, finish TUL ZBLL
Megaminx - Dayan v2. Currently average low 1:10 with YDH. Goal: average sub 50, learn OLL/PLL (maybe not in full yet)
3BLD - Same Tengyun. Currently average DNF with OP. Goal: average sub 1 min, learn 3-style.

i will work on other events too but i have no set goal

Good luck reaching average 8!

After a couple months of active use, I am now quitting CN ZZ. I think it was a valuable skill to learn, and I may return to it someday, but I think it is heavily hindering both my inspection and lookahead currently. I am switching to y neutrality, so that I can have a consistent cross (white) with consistent pair locations. (I never had a problem with CFOP lookahead CN because I never really had to worry about back slots)

Interesting development...thanks for updating us.

I actually like just y neutrality most as well. I think you should still do CN when you notice an easy CN cross though.

Currently working on generating and learning OLS algorithms. RU'R'URU'R' F2L set is done generated, going to finish learning soon. This is very useful subset because many cases set up to it.

Thanks for the hard work.

3x3 - Tengyun v1 3x3, corner magnet modded
Did you just add corner magnets? Did you cut off the little yellow nubs inside? I attempted extra magnets but because of the bit of plastic in the way I'm not sure if it added to magnet strength or just made the cube heavier.
