Ok, now that your other records will for sure last for a few years, can you concentrate on Multi-BLD? :D

Wait... Blindforded????

ford

verb
past tense: forded; past participle: forded
(of a person or vehicle) cross (a river or stream) at a shallow place.

He crossed a river blindly?! That seems dangerous.

I hope you're kidding. Just wait till 5BLD become more competitive. People will push it even further in the future.
I am not kidding. I just did some calculations and realised that maaaybe 3 minute average is possible. But it is possible only if somebody will practice 5bld extremely hard, for the whole life and will do everything ideally in solves. So I think somebody will reach it at least in a few years, and this WR will stay for very long time, maybe longer than 41/41. But I hope that I am mistaken.

You should check out this thread World Record predictions in the year 2020? and Hardwick's predictions about 5BLD.

Well, I am pretty sure that anybody can reach Kaijun level in 1-2 years, no need to practice "whole" life. People have different progress rate, just look at Max. There will be for more world-class 5BLDers in the future and big competition is the factor that push people to do unimaginable. I bet there will be sub3 mean in a few years

Yeah, he said that only sub-6 is possible. Ok... It was in 2009. Now I calculated 3 minutes using all my knowledge in 5BLD. And according to my calculations sub-3 minutes is possible only if you practice every single 3-style algorithm(over 1000 at 5x5 excluding inverses if I am not mistaken) at stackmat like people practice 21 PLL, to execute them very fast, and if you have awesome memory, better than Maskow's. Also I didn't add pauses during execution to these 3 minutes. You need A LOT of time, patience and motivation to become that good.

I don't think there will be more people practicing 5bld hard in future, because this event is not as popular as non-bld events.

Just because it's not as popular now in no way means that it won't be popular in the future. If there is a larger mature contingent in the cubing community, whether because current cubers mature or because the cubing community significantly increases in size, there will likely be more interest in blind events.

As far as possible improvement, I can barely do 3BLD, so I'm not really qualified, but would it be worthwhile to develop a dedicated 5BLD cube? I'm thinking of relatively thicker inner layers to facilitate slice turns, and possibly some ridges on the corners to make up for the thin outer layers.

Yeah, he said that only sub-3 is possible is possible. Ok... It was in 2017. Now I calculated 1.5 minutes using all my knowledge in 5BLD.

Yeah, he said that only sub-1.5 is possible. Ok... It was in 2025. Now I calculated 45 seconds using all my knowledge in 5BLD.
