3BLD: no change for single, ~25s mean
4BLD: Kaijun to get sub-2:30 first, then a sub-2:10 at next comp
5BLD: Linus Fresz gets a sub-5:30, but the number of active competitors will drop
MultiBLD: no change

222, 333, 444 = no change
The rest will all see WRs, in both single and average

And to anyone predicting a sub-2 from me (lol) then you might want to adjust that now, I probably won't get another WR this year. Maybe one more if I'm lucky, but meh

3BLD: 20.xy single by Maskow/25.xy mo3 by Maskow or Kaijun
4BLD: Ollie and Kaijun both get 2:0x.yz
5BLD: Will stay as it is. (I will get that NR tough :D )
MBLD: I think Maskow will keep trying 50 cubes but doesn't get a 100% run so let's say 48/50. Also several new people will get 20+ points (including CyanSandwich and myself :D ).
