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

Discussion about methods, times, and all things related to solving the Rubik's brand products.

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

I don't know where any of the figures come from. Supposedly the ZZ method has 177 algorithms just for the qickest completion of the final layer.

'ZZ is a modern speedcubing method, originally proposed by Zbigniew Zborowski in 2006.[5] The method was designed specifically to achieve high turning speed by focusing on move ergonomics. The initial pre-planned step is called EOLine, and is the most distinctive hallmark of the ZZ method. It involves orienting all edges while placing two opposite down-face edges. The next step solves the remaining first two layers using only left, right and top face turns. On completion of the first two layers, the last layer's edges are all correctly orientated because of edge pre-orientation during EOLine. The last layer may be completed using a number of techniques including those used in the Fridrich method. An expert variant of this method (ZZ-a) allows the last layer to be completed in a single step with an average of just over 12 moves and knowledge of 177 algorithms.'

Bear in mind, I don't even know any Fridrich method or anything, so I am just copying stuff I read in wikipedia and stuff and really don't have any idea what I am talking about. Probably should learn at least the Fridrich method, but it seems kind of overwhelming to a guy that has to work all the time and then is always busy in the gym or practicing kung fu in his free time.

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

I finally got new stickers. and if someone can help my time is anywhere between 25-40 and when I'm lucky 20-25. I want to drop my time so its anywhere between 20-29 and 15-19 when I'm lucky. If anyone can help that would be great, I also know full oll, pll, and intuative f2l.

[quote user='televisionczar']41 f2l algs? I learned f2l intuitively. maybe that's my problem. post a link to f2l algerithms.[/quote]

Screw algorithmic version!! Intuitive version is way more brain using, and you can quickly solve the problem you have on the cube with your brain. Imagine you find a new case... with no algorithm for it and you only know how to solve it with algorithms?!

Maybe a genius one day will make intuitive OLL PLL

lol.

Well I'm still practicing to fasten the top cross, cause I think that's when I'm lame at.
@topic starter: There is no way you could memorize 78 algorithm. Even Einstein can't do that [8-|]

Dude, I'm serious! and a year ago I didn't even know what an algerithm was. Now I've memorized over 100 total including big cube algs. You just have to break the alg codes (there's only like 4) and you can learn an algerithm within several minutes and master it within 2 days.

Try this scramble:
B2 L2 R2 U B2 U R2 F2 U2 D' B2 L' R' B D2 B R' F2 U' D' R'

Gave me a 14 second solve on a Rubik's branded Cube, and I only average at 30 seconds.

Now from trying the scramble again, I got a 6.56 second solve (keep in mind the Cube I'm using).

Highlight for Solution:
X-Cross: L2 U D L
F2L #2: L U L'
F2L #3: R' U R
F2L #4: R U R'
OLL: F R U R' U' F'
PLL: U2 > T-Permutation

FINALLY!!! sub 20 solve = ] and by less than a tenth of a second! new record 19.926 and that was with no pll/oll skips.

You noob... thats called practice solving you noob... oh my god... you'll never get skilled that way...

YOURE HORRIBLE. LEAVE NOW!!!
