You're still missing the "none of these" option. Only 2-3 of these events are even reasonable ideas.
No offense to @GAN 356 X , but @Kit Clement is kind of right.

Maybe they could put Magic and Master Magic back in, but they actually scramble it instead of it being the same thing over and over. That would make the number of events an even 20. For people who care about Kinch (myself included), it would mean a WR would mean an even 5, not 5.3333...
However, the old solves from those events would probably have to be archived and not used for statistical purposes. If the old ones were placed alongside the new, it would mix things up* even more.

I would like curvy copter. We currently don't have any edge turning events or many jumbling events (only squan.) This would definitely open up a whole new world of methods and another set of world class cubers, and give attention to such a unique puzzle.

Kilo and master kilo might be good alongside pyramorphix and master pyraminx.

If someone comes up with a random state scrambler for this puzzle that has not terrible notation/scrambles, I might be on board with this. That being said, I'm fairly skeptical about this.

Let’s focus on whether we should remove certain events before we focus on adding another event that will just turn into a “cram 3 heats in before lunch” event.
Amen to that. Some events would, in my opinion, honestly be better off removed.
(The ones I'm thinking of are 3WF, 3FMC, 7x7, or maybe Clock)

They're already removing 3x3 With Feet. I agree that clock should go as well, due to the fact that it isn't even a twisty puzzle. However, I strongly disagree that either FMC and 7x7 should be removed. FMC is such an interesting concept and is so different than any other WCA event, but in a good way. I also see no valid reason to remove 7x7.

"When I think about whether an event should be removed I usually think about should we have it in the first place and if we didn’t have it already I feel like I would laugh at the idea of adding 3x3 with feet." –J Perm

This is how I feel about clock, as well. There's no good reason to have it as an official event in the first place. In addition, major cube companies don't even take it that seriously, so there's no innovation in the foreseeable future with the puzzle. When was the last time that a mass-produced good-quality clock was manufactured?

That's a valid point, but I had no idea they were actually removing feet solving. Now I kind if miss it... -ish.

I feel like team blind wouldn't work because of how difficult it would be to post the results. Also how do you decide partners. Master Kilominx is basically a big 4x4. Definitely Redi cube because it is like Skewb. The turning is completely different
