In my humble opinion, here is the order for WCA events (ranked by difficulty to learn, not by difficulty to improve at):

1. Skewb (solve corners then spam sledges)
2. Pyraminx (solve centers then just insert edges)
3. 2x2 (literally eight pieces)
4. 3x3, 3x3 OH, 3x3 FMC (if you can solve a 3x3, you can do all of these)
5. Clock (only three steps)
6. Megaminx (basically a 3x3)
7. 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7 (beginner’s method is essentially identical for all four of them)
8. Square-1 (easy if you like algs)
9. 3BLD (takes time to learn and practice but isn’t actually too hard)
10. MBLD (I would rank it even with 3BLD except that memorizing 2+ cubes is harder than just one)
11. 4BLD (self-explanatory)
12. 5BLD (also self-explanatory)

3x3 it takes 9 seconds and 5BLD takes 5 minutes. Accuracy in 3x3 is 100% and in 5BLD is 23% globally. Improving in 3x3 is waaaay harder than improving in 5BLD imo.
