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.

Curvy copter and copter is fantastic but jumbling could be an issue.
When I speed solve it I just use scrambles for the Dino cube so it only scrambles edges without jumbling as it would be difficult to organize in a comp.

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.
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

I might not be able to create a random scrambler, but I am able to make a notation. Just give me a day, I'll DM you an idea, and potentially someone can work off of the notation to make a proper scrambler with it.
