7x7 makes sense as it's a large odd numbered cube,and is the odd-number version of 6x6 in a wayI'm gonna go through each event and speak my mind. I haven't read the past 7 pages, but from what I can tell everyone has got to the same point of any new event will be hard for comps and they're quite niche.
Curvy copter: It would be super unique as it is edge turning, jumbles and so far is super underdeveloped. If a random state scrambler is made and there was somehow spare time at a comp, it would be a great addition.
Team blind: It's really fun but really hard to regulate and probably wouldn't work super well, which is a shame because I enjoy it. It would also be very loud.
2x2 OH: Lol why?
Double 3x3 OH: Lol why?
Kilominx: It fills in the gap between 15 and 30 seconds and is a lot more accessible than 3bld. A lot of people have them and the hardware is already alright. There's a lot more room for method improvement than compared to skewb and is really fun. It also has a random state scrambler and support.
Ghost cube: 3x3 shape mod. Enough said.
Mirror cube: See: Ghost cube.
Redi cube and mosaic cube: Firstly, redi is super repetitive, already developed and not unique. It's a pyraminx/skewb turned into a cube and imo skewb is the worst event. Please no redi cube ever. Mosaic cube, don't know a lot about it, but it looks like a slightly more complicated redi cube. So no.
Master Kilominx: No for the same reason as 8x8 or anything else large. Too big and too much time in an already cramped schedule. Also, scrambling will be an big issue.
Gear cube: Why? Already has fast times and no community momentum.
On the practical element: we do need to remove events to allow for new ones. As time is a big issue, I think that 7x7 is a good one to remove due to pretty much everyone (bar the best) taking a long time, therefore making the rounds too long. I'd also therefore be a fan of removing 6x6 as it's just 6x6 (or even remove 6x6 and keep 7x7), but that's more just because of my dislike of 6x6. I'd also be a fan of removing skewb because it's redundant as it's the third trivial event with the least claim (as it's not a face turning platonic solid and it's not in the "cube line"). That would allow time for something like Kilominx. I'm a fan of feet as it's very unique and I also think that clock should stay for the same reason. The rest of the events also work and I think they should all stay.
Curvy copter and kilominx are the most viable. Remove 7x7 and skewb.
skewb seems dead now, so i guess it would make sense to remove it but the uniqueness of sledges makes it a different event kinda
