.but I personally feel that feet and clock take away the speedcubing spirit since the 2 events r not best to judge and not main priorities of many cubers including me.
A slight variation; but I feel clock cant be enjoyed by spectators due to the absence of sight on the puzzle; this is the reason we don't have 2D puzzles like 15Puzzle.

Additionally; I tried my firs feet solve yesterday; 25 second average with 2 hands; I took me 22 minutes. Sums up my love for the event.

My first 4BLD attempt was almost two hours, and a DNF, when I averaged 3 minutes at 3BLD. Just because I was bad at it on my first attempt doesn't mean it's a bad event, or I hated it.

In that case, why do we do FMC? :p

(Also, I don't know of this is what you meant but you must be quite fond of the event if you were willing to spend 25 minutes doing one solve.. :p)

I think that is impossible. My first feet attempt was around 7 minutes. Since a normal CFOP solve is about 60 moves, that means you did around 3 moves per minute.

Edit: of course it is possible, just unlikely that it took you 22 minutes.
