I just wanna mention that we all should keep in mind that the weekly comp is supposed to be something you can easily completely do in a week! If I was able to do 4-7BLD in a reasonable amount of time it would cost me at least a full day to do all events and that is just too much. While I get that 7BLD and 6BLD are not removed (Since Mike is putting so much work into this and it is by far the greatest online comp thats just fair) it would be really annoying to add events that cost a lot of time, like 4x4 FMC or another difficult BLD event that will only be done by like 5 people every week. I for example consider myself rather fast and doing all events besides MBF and 4-7BLD already costs me like 6 hours tbh

+1 for Speed FMC
+1 Mirror Blocks
from me

But I would also really like at least the 2-6 relay to be gone and maybe even 2-5 and 2-7 since, how mentioned before, they are really just coming down to who is best at the biggest cube and doesnt mess up the others too much and thats not adding any variety.

Also I am strongly opposing the removal of feet. Just because the WCA makes a dumb decision I dont think that this should influence the weekly comp.

Is it though? I’ve only come close to competing in all the events I can do a couple of times. I don’t consider that my participation is of lesser quality when I don’t have time to do them all. And different people have different amounts of time to devote to it anyway.
