Hello everyone, and welcome to DDO's first cubing debate! In this debate, we will post a video each round solving a cube. The goal is not to be the fastest, but most impressive. Judges, vote bomb whoever's videos were more impressive to you overall. This means regular solves of complex puzzles, fast solves, one handed solves, or even blind folded should be a contributing factor to how you vote. The only rule is, each cuber may only use a puzzle once. For example, we can both use a megaminx, but I can't use a megaminx twice. I'll start it off with a simple Pyraminx solve.

Thankyou, SeventhProfessor! I'm excited and look forward to having a fun debate! :)

I'll be starting out with a 2x2 blindfolded solve. I haven't practiced BLD for a while, so I'm a bit rusty, but I still find it alot of fun. I hope any viewers will enjoy it as well!

That part in the beginning when I say oops and do something off camera is just me switching to my right hand. I only turned it once or twice before realizing it was off camera.

Thanks, SeventhProfessor! It's also cool to be able to see your awesome puzzle collection in the background. :)

My next solve shall be a 4x4 solve!

In the first round, Pro did a "Pyraminx solve" and Con did a simple - but blindfolded - cube solve. While the end result of Pro's was better looking (Pyraminx > small cube), the blindfolded aspect took the round, I think.

Second round: Pro took a page from Con's book and added the twist of "one-handed" to it, instead of blindfolded. Con, meanwhile, did a 4x4 speedsolve. Again, the methods were better for Con. Maybe it's because I've never done one-handed, but the sheer speed at which Con solved the cube was amazing! 0-2

Lastly, Pro did an extremely impressive 7x7 (WOW) solve, whereas Con stuck to his guns on another speedsolve. Here, I think Pro did a better job, because he expanded his arsenal, as it were.

The end result is 1-2, but per Pro's rules, I vote bomb for the victor, who I believe to be Con. But - wow - nice debate, guys!

I would vote on this but I truly don't know how to compare what is impressive and what isn't when it comes to cubing haha.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm not really sure how to judge this, so I guess I'll go off of who was more impressive. I have to say zmikecuber was really fast, and I think I got hooked on the blindfolded one because that was just really cool. I wanna give SeventhProfessor some points though, because even though it took him like 16 minutes to do the 7x7 that would've taken me like a year XD good job to both though.

Reasons for voting decision: This was very tough, as both opponents had very fast hand eye coordination. In the end, I think Con did slightly better. Good job to both!

Reasons for voting decision: I loved Pro's one-handed trick. Con's speed run at the end vote the vote for me. Pro's 7x7 would have won the vote if it didn't take 18 minutes.

Reasons for voting decision: It's just amazing to watch you both, I have no command for these types of puzzles whatsoever. Really what it comes down to is whether I'm more impressed by rapidity or complexity. In this regard, I have to give it to Pro, as I found the complexity of that 7x7 to be most intense. And as we were told by Pro to vote bomb our perceived champion, that's what I'm doing.
