The term method neutrality refers to the ability to solve a puzzle with multiple methods in approximately equal times.
Notable Method Neutral Cubers
Pros of Method Neutrality
- Method Neutrality sometimes can be advantageous, if a scramble has finished or almost finished the first step of the method, or if it has any step finished.
- For example, one may use CFOP because the cross is finished or they may use ZZ when all of the edges are oriented.
Cons of Method Neutrality
- Learning multiple methods and having similar times with all of them is a huge task.
- In inspection, if a solver wants to, he/she needs to choose which method suits the scramble best in 15 seconds, which can be compared to planning two pairs in inspection.
