CubeSkills News

Hi! If this is your first time on CubeSkills, or if you’re in need of some help with navigation around the site, you’ve come to the right place.

 

For information about speedcubing and an overview of CubeSkills, check out the introduction module on the tutorials page, as well as the ‘About’ tab on the website. The FAQ section may also come in handy if you have any queries.

 

On the tutorials page, the 3x3 video modules are segmented into beginner, intermediate, and advanced tutorials, and these are shown at the top of the tutorials page. Those solving the cube with a beginner’s or layer by layer method should start with beginner tutorials. If you’re currently learning the CFOP method, then check out the intermediate sections. Lastly, if you’re looking to further improve your solves beyond basic CFOP, check out the advanced modules. To view all tutorial modules on the site, click the tutorials tab in the header, and then click 'All'. As you complete each tutorial video, it will be automatically marked as complete - but you have the ability to manually adjust the complete/incomplete tick for each video as you please! Videos marked with a lock symbol are only viewable to premium members. Premium members also have the ability to comment on videos to ask questions and engage in discussion around the content.

 

Complete/Incomplete tick

 

In addition to the 3x3 videos, we also have tutorials and resources for other speedcubing events, also accessible via the 'Tutorials' tab in the navigation bar.

 

For more assistance and an overview of how to get faster, take a look at the blog with the same name. The blog tab features articles I write every few weeks relating to speedcubing in some shape or form. Content may vary from speedcubing advice or thoughts, to competitions and travel, to CubeSkills news.

 

Our premium membership tab outlines the benefits and pricing of a premium membership. A premium membership is a cool way to support the growth and development of CubeSkills, and provides access to every single one of our tutorials, past, present and future. There are also some other cool benefits for cubers looking to improve their ability, so check it out!

 

If you click on your name in the top right corner, you’ll find access to your profile page, in which you can change some of your account settings and details. Any videos that you add as favourites will also be stored in this section of the site.

 

In the footer of the website, you’ll find links to the CubeSkills social media accounts. Like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram for some behind-the-scenes pictures, announcements, teasers, and plenty more! There is also a contact page for any questions you have about the website.

 

Cheers, and I really hope you enjoy browsing CubeSkills!

Hello Feliks I have some question are you going to make videos about OLL or PLL ? Or where did you learn these tricks?

Feliks Zemdegs from CubeSkills Posted 1 year ago

Thanks Phillip!

Dror - which algorithm isn't working for you?

Jordi - I'll make some OLL and PLL fingertrick videos in the next little while :)

Adarsh - Working on fleshing out the 3x3 tutorials as well as doing some 4x4 and big cube tutorials before that sort of thing! :)


Vikalp Chauhan

Vikalp Chauhan Posted 1 year ago

Hey Feliks thanks for the blog.

Dude can u make a chart of all plls which you usually do and easy to do coz I know most of them but if u talking abt G-perm and R-perm it is sick like how to identify the cases. So really need ur preference and guidance.

And I m like 25-30s avg cuber and m stuckked in this time frame. I just can't get how shud I improve myself

Looking forward for your reply :)


Shankar S

Shankar S Posted 1 year ago

Thanks mate. I am a 9.25 avg of 500 solver who does not know full oll. I just know the 2 look ones and some crappy ones i made by myself. Looking forward to your OLL and PLL finger trick videos.

In my opinion I feel the advanced courses are not for a 8 second averager, its for a 12 to 15 second person.

For super advanced courses i would like some example solves and breakdowns. As they are really helpful.

 

Thanks,

Shankar.

ps: You don't need to reply to this, as there are other people who need answers faster.

KcubeW yt

KcubeW yt Posted 1 year ago

Hey Feliks, I have a question for you, if you were to have ANY cube, what would it be? Since Gan 356 UMs are gone, I would choose that :p


KcubeW yt

KcubeW yt Posted 1 year ago

Plus, the membership thing is a bit unfair since they get to be on the livestreams and get more videos wich I am sub 40 and I need those videos atleast until I am sub 20. But you do you ;)

Corner Cutter Posted 1 year ago

Hi Feliks,

Thank you so much for putting together this website!  I am learning so much and I didn't even get to the advanced videos yet.  I am almost sub-18.  The content is organized nicely.

I can't wait for the Competing Tips.  Keep up the great work!

Hi,Feliks ,I am a cuber from China ,I have not see 4by4 speed solvers of you long time.So I hope you can upload some of 4by4 cube video on youtu.

Sorry,my English is limited


Wang Yong chang

OH,I would appreciate it if you can mention my name on the 4by4 video, so I know you did it for me.And my name is Yong-chang Wang,and I am a Chinese.

Thanks for you again.

Wang Yong chang Posted 1 year ago

Hi,I am back.I have a problem about Chinese Super Brain show.We know you took part in the program last year,you won the game with a project that you are not good at.And this year, Kaijun Lin,the world record holder for the 3by3 blind.But the program group to developed a rule,is to listen  the voice of disturbing the cube  to determine the state of the cube ,and then blind.Do you think it is possible?

But when the game,Liping Jia with the minimum step to solved the cube,because he remembered the cube disturb formula .So finally Kaijun Lin lost.

As the same time,the program group invited Mats Valk and Marcin Kowalczyk to participate in this show,but because of that event,the program group canceled the cube game.All of our Chinese cubers were angry.

So What do you think these events?

Riley Sage

Riley Sage Posted 1 year ago

Do you have any tips on how to improve lookahead? I've tried doing slow solves but I don't think it's really getting me anywhere.


Stephen M

Stephen M Posted 1 year ago

Hey Feliks, 

I have just one question. Is it necessary to be color neutral? I am a sub 50 solver and I was thinking of putting the time and effort into it, but is it really necessary? By the way, love the website! 

Sincerely, 

Stephen


Feliks Zemdegs

Feliks Zemdegs from CubeSkills Posted 1 year ago

Riley - check out the video on lookahead in the intermediate F2L module.

Stephen - Not necessary, but highly recommended, particularly if you're only new - it will take far less effort to switch!

Abhipsit Khound

Abhipsit Khound Posted 1 year ago

Hi Feliks I'm grateful to you for making this website . I want to ask u a question. Is there a algorithm to quickly solve the cube or we should solve it in normal way quickly?

 


KcubeW yt

KcubeW yt Posted 1 year ago

Abhipsit, what does that even mean?? You have to do cfop or roux or whatever you use to solve the cube, there is a god number but you can't figure that out for 43 Quintillion combinations :p


Nguyễn Hoàng Nam

Nguyễn Hoàng Nam Posted 1 year ago

How can you do the CFOP?

Help me with that, Feliks!


Wang Yong chang

Wang Yong chang Posted 1 year ago

When I solve the cube,I always can't see the calibrated state of F2L no matter which side,it's hard to solve.

What should I do at this time?


Noseypoos :P

Noseypoos :P Posted 1 year ago

Hi Feliks,

 

I am averaging 30-35 seconds but 20 seconds for F2L. I have just recently learnt full PLL, but that is not getting me sub-30. I know I need to improve my F2L recognition and have been practicing a lot in the past few weeks, but have not improved that much. Do you think I should learn more F2L? Also, is it necessary to be color neutral? I can get my average times with white and yellow cross, but not any other colors.

Loving the site!


Speed Cuber

Speed Cuber Posted 1 year ago

Hi Feliks,

I am looking at doing speed cubing. I have ((((((( questions.

1) What cube should i get?

2)How are you so good?

3)How do you practise?

4)How long do you practise?

5)What competitions should i go to?


Joshua Paulus-Rosenow

Joshua Paulus-Rosenow Posted 1 year ago

Hi Feliks,

Thanks so much for starting this! Recently I founded my own non-profit organization called "Anyone Can Cube." I am currently teaching the Rubik's cube to 18 boys at a local orphanage. When I'm with them I teach them what I know, but when I'm gone I'm wondering what to give them as resources. Now that you're compiling all this great knowledge into one place I have something to use for them in my absence!

Thanks again, I'm looking forward to all of your content.

Hi Feliks! This is a great website, and great for all us cubers to learn from the best of the best. A lot of my friends are asking for a good website, and I am recommending this one to every single person who asks. I have one question though. Do you have any advice on how to memorize OLL and PLL algorithms?

Hi Feliks, this website has dropped my times from a minute to 20-30 seconds in 2 weeks.I am very happy about it. I am just wondering if I should get the Gans air 356 because I have heard many good reviews of it. I am wondering what are the differences from the Moyu weilong GTS2.

Hi Feliks ,

             In Your 4.75 Solve You Have mentioned That Hard-core Zeroing on the Last F2L Pair

•What Is Zeroing? 

•At What Stage Should We Use It ?

•Will You Make a Tutorial For It?

•When did You Start Using 

Zeroing ?

 

Feliks Please Answer My Questions

 


 


Ethan Varn

Ethan Varn Posted 1 year ago

Zeroing isn’t a method or subset, it is a joke about him having a secret method that explains how he’s so fast. Not a real thing he’s just really good at CFOP. Hope this helped and if not, speedcubereview on YouTube has a video on it :)

Hi Feliks,

Please answer this question:

How to do Zeroing??


Liam Gerard

Liam Gerard Posted 8 months ago

Zeroing is fake. He says that a lot. Just a joke about how fast he is.


Isaiah Baker

Isaiah Baker Posted 7 months ago

Zeroing is just a joke. Although feliks uses weird tricks during his solves like the 4.75 "hardcore zeroing" solve, thats not zeroing. It' just his way of getting better last layer cases.

I started cubing 2 months ago and average 1:30 seconds.  I am learning CFOP.  Any Advice? 


William Yang

William Yang Posted 7 months ago

Do you know how to do F2L properly?

If you solve the entire bottom first and then start your side pieces then go to Feliks 3x3 tutorials and click on F2L this is going to improve your times a lot then in 3x3 algorithms download the PLL algorithms and then OLL Algorithims this by itself will improve your times by a lot


Kiran  Bhat

Kiran Bhat Posted 7 months ago

I really love you Feliks u are really cool in solving cubes once again I love ur channel I like ur tutoring And I am lucky to have seen it tutoring on YouTube

Hi feliks i'm living japan nice to meet you. 

Then i have question how you can do remember all olls and plls .

remembering all is so hard.

please tell me.

I'm sorry if i am being impolite or too straightforward.


Noah Marsh

Noah Marsh Posted 1 week ago

The best thing to remember them is to practice them, so you get them into your muscle memory, so you don't have to think about what moves to do, you just do them.


Master Jamin Hendricks

Master Jamin Hendricks Posted 1 week ago

i just repeat the algorithm over and over until its in my muscle memory,then the next day i see if i remember it. thats how i do it.


Noah Marsh

Noah Marsh Posted 1 week ago

Yeah, that's what I do.
