Thanks for the all these advices!
I'm starting to think my first layers are weak because this is a pattern that shows on all the models I've printed so far. I managed to print this one, then a small toy (the articulated slug) which had an even more stringy base, so I leveled my bed once again then I couldn't get anything to stick on the bed (I have both the glass bed and the original one that came with the printer, I've tried to switch back to the latter), so after an hour or so of struggling more and more to print the calibration cube (which I have already printed 3 times before without a problem), I decided I should stop, take a breath, go to bed and try again from the beginning tomorrow. People never take pictures of the bases of their object so I'm not sure how flat they're supposed to be maybe I went overboard trying to solve that issue and ruined my calibration.
3d printing really tries your patience sometimes! this is a good exercise for that.
