How do you get sub 20 on the rubik's cube

Postby televisionczar » Tue Jan 12, 2010 1:29 am

I use fridrich and my best time is 20 seconds but I just can't seem to get past that mark. I know all the pll cases and 90% of oll cases, f2l seems to be the most time consuming. any hint/tips?

you learned over 150 algorithms?! $^$%^$!!! IMPOSSIBLE NOT EVEN SPEEDCUBERS CAN LEARN THAT MUCH THEY STOP AT 70%.


jk :)


I think F2L is my strength, my F2L is about 7 seconds.


predict which pieces go where and where.

Just practice...it just takes work......however rubixcuber...you mean to tell me...that you can solve the cross in 3 seconds on average and then solve each F2L pair in 1 second each? if you can do that you should be atleast 17 seconds average lol...that gives you 5 seconds for the OLL and 5 for the PLL...could you show me a video where you have a 7 sec F2L?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMtOXH7443c

in that vid ur F2L was atleast 15 seconds lol...and that vid was 2 months ago.

14 secs in this video...i'm not trying to bash you...but a 7 sec F2L takes work...and i doubt that you've achieved that yet. Anyway..back to the main topic...practice is the main factor...On a good day I can average anywhere from 16-17.5 secs..i'm below 20 always. Just practice and the rest will follow.

rubixcuber, there is 57 oll alg. and 21 pll alg. unless you have a more complex website you get that information from I learned around 70 alg.

Yes!


Maybe i counted too fast...? I never did it with a timer.


Let's see.


Cross 3 seconds...


F2L 8.70 seconds...


 


Lets time my OLL + PLL


9 seconds...


Cross + F2L + (OLL + PLL) = 20.7 seconds.


My average is 22. That's around my time...


 


It was just that time when I was counting it was that fast... it's still similiar, 1~2 seconds difference.

??? confusion

Postby rubixcuber » Wed Jan 13, 2010 5:17 pm

around 100 algorithms... isn't that how many OLL PLL algs there are?


I saw it on cutex.info once... or maybe im just confused with ZB?


 


hehehe. i make mistakes guys plz dont bash me to death!!!!! Cubing got confusing now :O

to. sagrsccr,


Dear fellow cubing superior...


I 'probably' have made a mistake but in the video my cube popped and one can get much faster in 2 months time... imagine erik akkersdijk and he got world record in less than 2 years of cubing...

lol, thanks. too bad I have to wait till I get new stickers from cubesmith before trying to get sub 20. I was so excited I was getting new stickers that I just started pealing stickers off like crazy and now I'm stuck with a stickerless cube until they arrive which would probably be more than a week since I haven't even orderd them yet .
