I dont really do feet, but I think that it should be kept because some people really like it, it is really impressive, and it is just a cool event. I cant believe they are getting rid of feet to save time, but they dont get rid of clock of 5x5 BLD

Boi, why do people keep bringing this up, it’s completely invalid point. There are other reasons but just looking at the numbers are down below makes enough sense why they removed it (from the popularity aspect). So first off the only event that less comps with it than feet is 5bld and the second thing is the only thing with lower competitor counts is 4bld and 5bld. Feet is held less because people don’t want to compete in it, it’s easy but people choose to not compete in it. 4bld and 5bld are much harder and as a result have fewer competitors, it’s not a “don’t compete because I don’t want to” but rather a “don’t compete because I can’t” (also 4bld even with this is still held more often then feet lol). Of course this isn’t the only reason and several reasons for removing feet may be seen in other events (ex needing additional equipment is true for multibld since you need boxes to cover cubes and a sightblocker) but no other event has all the same reasons as feet. Feet isn’t being removed because of one negative aspect but rather a collection of them.
