Some accounts have glitches or players have "special" controllers because R1 is just a trigger - pressing it harder has no effect on the speed that pieces turn or move - and the game doesn't accelerate the pieces as they turn even when R1 is held down. On the other hand, if the speedsters (top 10 leaders) have legitimate times, then everyone else has been handicapped with their games and can't do better than 11-12 secs because their pieces turn and move too slowly (1.5-2 sec each) to solve the puzzle.

 

I watched the youtube video of a player getting an under 6 sec time and that player's pieces were turning and moving at 3X-4X the speed of my games.


Oh...Well...In that case..Nevermind then..lol...

I just posted an insane time of 4.14, now that I will never do again, but I think I just cemented my victory. So if the mods believe the people that keep calling us cheaters then so be it. I don't think I should have to post video evidence but I think I must have too.

That's not helping us prove our case! Very good job. I can barely get 4.90. I'm currently recording a video, trying to show that 4 second runs are possible but I keep getting 5.40

Yeah when I mess up on the 4sec times you end messing up bad ending with a 7-8sec time, but its officially over I think cause its 3pmEst(12pmPst). So I won!

That's true, which is why you can imagine my anger when I messed up and STILL got a 4 second time. 4.96! XD

As an aside, the piece is placed when you let go of X. Therefore, to get the best times, you have to spin, move, and hold X all at the same time.

That technique would minimize the time to set a piece after spinning and moving it into place but the spin speed doesn't change. For whatever reason, your pieces spin much faster than the pieces of many other players.
I did notice that counter-clockwise spins appear faster than clockwise spins for certain pieces. Puzzle programming bug or part of the puzzle design? Who knows.

Oh well, I may not have won the prize, but I did manage to accomplish my goal of getting in the 4 second range. I just completed the puzzle at 4.90 seconds, but it seems the leaderboard hasn't updated.
