Feet isnt the least popular event in the WCA though.....Then why not just remove feet altogether? The argument you're making here only proves my point. Feet is by far the most unpopular event in the WCA, which is why it was removed in the first place. The organizers did have scramblers on hand prior to the competition, but it says a lot about the event with the reluctance for people to scramble/judge the event.
Lucas Garron said "speed solving event" to hide the fact that there are less popular events. ********.
Did the competition not have any staff at all? Staff who are provided with benefits such as a waived registration fee and free lunch should be willing to do any task to help the competition.I recently competed and helped judge at the Malaysia Cube Championship, and not a single scrambler was willing to do the feet scrambles. As this was my first comp, I hesitantly agreed to do the scrambling to see what it was like to be behind the stage. I believe it is a completely valid argument, alongside hygiene issues. Maybe you would be alright with all the downsides of feet, but the majority of other organizers disagree.
