Interesting. For my averages, it's:
Warp 2.5: 2x2x2, 3x3x3, 4x4x4
Warp 4: 5x5x5, 6x6x6, 7x7x7

Very big jump between 4x4x4 and 5x5x5. If you ask me, the scale jumps strangely there.

lets look at where the WR averages fall in this extended scale:

2x2 - 9, almost 9.5
3x3 - 7.5
4x4 - 6.5
5x5 - 8.5, almost 9
6x6 - 8.5, almost 9
7x7 - 8, almost 8.5

take that how you will; I personally would find it hard to believe that everyone is that much relatively worse at 4x4.

Faz did 28.xx once (with double parity). It's over warp 8.0.

This scale does not pretend to be a scientific tool. I tried to keep things simple.

That said, maybe you’ll prefer this revised version.

Do you see the image in the spoiler? I'm not sure.

I think a nice feature of this scale is that there is a correlation between that and the fact that it takes more time to go faster than your time off, and the levels are relatively close to the same amount of time Unlike the time it would take if the measure was one level for every 5 seconds instead, if that makes any sense.

Now, Feliks has out-of-scale results for single.

For Feliks, single:
3x3 : 12,7
4x4 : 12,4
5x5 : 12,5
6x6 : 12,0
7x7 : 11,8

For Feliks, average:
3x3 : 10,3
4x4 : 9,8
5x5 : 10,5
6x6 : 10,9
7x7 : 11,2

As you can see, Feliks is a little too weak at 4x4. Consequently, he does not hold the WR.
Sebastien Weyer reaches warp 10.4 on average. Comparable to Feliks' results with other sizes.

Warp 2.5 for 222,
warp 3.5-ish for 333,
warp 4.5 for 444 and 555,
warp 5 for 666 and 777.

Big cubes are love, big cubes are life.
