I'm not very sure though...
True, because what you look at is (in this order):
Points
Time
Success rate (even though I would prefer number of solved cubes)

the last one is not described in the WCA regs as far as I know, but that's how the equation for the MBLD works :-)

ON-TOPIC:
VERY NICE!

nonsense. Why would it be like this if it is not stated in the regs?

The multiBLD results are stored as a number, which when sorted numerically, would rank 21/21 cubes better than 23/25.

4. I don't even know if there are any placements like that (it's unlikely, put possible), but I think that success rate should be taken into consideration after points and time

But it's still a tie

Since this is really rare that something like this happens, I supposed that the score calculator in the wca result sheets was the ones actually used for the rankings.

But let's make an example:
Albert gets 21/21 in 50:00
Berta gets 23/25 in 50:00

Someone types in the results, excel say Alberta wins and Berta gets second. Would you the go manually and edit the positions?
I know that the MBLD is stored as a score (like just below 1000000) and that you can extract everything useful out of it so easy. When I created the weekly comp system I also had to make such a thing, and I actually asked why 21/21 was better than 23/25, and most of them (at least of what I remember) said that it was because of the accuracy being more impressive than the number of solved cubes, no one really mentioned it should be considered a tie.

6. F yeahhhh Maskow <3 <3 congratulations! All that practice paid off (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y)

7. Congrats !!! Well deserved!

There were people touching the cubes during the solve!!!

I dunno, I think 50 would be tough for the top people. If you look at Maskow he's ridiculously fast but around cubes his accuracy starts to go down. So I don't think he would find it so easy to do 4 times that much. (And multi was already getting unmanageable - look at the attempts by Rowe and Mondo!)
