In a few years maybe some Chinese cuber with insane TPS and very lucky scrambles. Idk how many people are practicing 2x2 actively.

Well given that some EG algs are extremely not optimal it would take quite a bit of luck to get the 10~ algorithms that are actually decent - 4 times in a row.

Also you would have to have reasonable first layer cases. So I doubt it’s gonna happen any time soon but maybe in 5 years

I don't think this is true. If the first solution I check gives a bad EG case, I would definitely look at other solutions. This might involve a different way of making a layer/face that gives a better case or has a nice cancellation, or I try looking at a completely different color.

Fundamentally, I think that all 2x2 scrambles have sub-1 potential.

There are several people who are capable of getting sub-1 averages relatively frequently, so it would not be too surprising to see one officially in the not-too-distant future.

Zayn Khanani is sub-1 on 2x2
Zayn isn't sub 1 lol. He averages 1 flat ig.
I wish I averaged sub-1 globally, lol. Currently, I would say my global is somewhere around 1.2.
