default state -> solved state

sounds like solving to me
solve |sälv; sôlv|
verb [ trans. ]
find an answer to, explanation for, or means of effectively dealing with (a problem or mystery) : the policy could solve the town's housing crisis | a murder investigation that has never been solved.
Seems to me your just changing the state of something without solving. I don't think magic has a unsolved/solved state. Hypothetically,if uncapping a bottle of CRC was an event, would removing the cap be considered solving? Would an uncapped bottle be considered solved? Maybe I'm not making sense...

Normal magic: Unsolved, unlinked rings -> solved, linked rings

the puzzle/problem here is to get the rings connected

If removing the cap of CRC was an event, it wouldn't be considered solving, since there's no problem or mystery there

But every "solution" is the same.... Besides, I doubt you think there's mystery in magic flipping.

Ok. I can use devil's alg on a 3x3 and it will be solved at some point. Does this mean it's not a puzzle?
The key in the definition you provided: problem or mystery, not and

I don't practice 2x2x2 a lot in comparison to the effort I put in 3x3x3, although I still practice a lot for both. They're my only events anyway.

what kind of person are you if you dont practice 3x3
I would have loved to answer "Me" to that kind of clueless question but unfortunately it's not true. I don't practice 3^3 very much, though, but I at least regularly do the weekly competition on the French forum.
The events I really don't practice at all are the magics because I don't do them, and clock bcause I currently don't have a decent one.
