I'm not doing 3x3! But I have registered for it.
Well, there are some who registered only for pyraminx for example. If that Person can solve a pyraminx, he most likely can solve a 3x3 too. why not competing in 3x3 then? i think theres even one who only registered for bld...

I know someone quite closely that has only competed in MBLD and has been to 7 competitions, travelling interstate for many. Funny thing is, he is good/decent at regular events: 3x3 ~12 4x4 ~48 5x5 ~1:40 OH ~22

They might only be able to get there in time for those events. I'm arriving on the Saturday afternoon so only doing 3BLD and pyraminx. I'm not interested in pyraminx but as I'll be there and there's no qualifying time I might as well do it.

Wow.
Thats something i wouldnt even consider :p
If i'm able to hit the time Limit in an Event, i compete. Didnt even consider not to...
Well I qualify for everything except feet (never done it) and clock (barely practised it and got a slow average, just wanted to demonstrate noflip), but I would prefer to focus on events I care about and not waste energy competing in loads of other stuff, even though there's other events I like. I would have thought focusing on main event(s) at a big comp would be common.

Also I'm not doing multi because I don't want to take loads of 3x3s, multi is the worst event in terms of hardware requirement.

I only want to compete in events I think I can do well in. If I haven't been practising an event, I tend to not compete in it, or stop competing mid-round.
The person I have to compete most with is myself, and if I'm not prepared, why waste competition time and materials?

I would imagine that many of those competitors are indeed planning on attending another event before June 18th, but it's likely that many did not read the qualification requirements.
All of those 39 will have to attend a comp and get an official 3x3 time before June 19th. I've been keeping an eye on that number for this reason of course, and it has dropped from 40 - hopefully it doesn't drop much more :p

Isn't that how every worlds goes? This is my first worlds or nats
I'm not sure (that is why I asked), but I think in the previous ones there were always a few top competitors missing. Wouldn't it be understandable that young competitors, who are probably not financially independent, were unable to travel to another continent for a competition?
