 Scrambled cube -> 2 opposite centers -> 1x3x4 block -> Last centers -> Remaining dedges -> Solve as Roux -> Solved cube Meyer is a frequently used speedsolving reduction method for the 4x4x4 cube.

Meyer method is a 4x4x4 speedsolving method proposed by Richard Meyer meant to suit users of the Roux method. It can also be applied to bigger cubes.

## Overview

1. Solve 2 opposite centers (usually right and left)
2. Solve a 1x3x4 block on the left using one of the built centers
3. Solve the remaining 4 centers
4. Pair up the remaining dedges without messing up the block
5. Do 3x3 stage with Roux (first block is already solved)

## Pros

1. M-slice method of pairing is arguably more ergonomic than the E-slices used in Yau.
2. Suited for Roux solvers.

## Cons

1. It can be difficult to perform the m-slice in the 3x3x3 stage and only becomes exponentially more difficult for each size the cube grows by.
