What about 4 and 5 blind? Im not the biggest fan of 5 bld.
What would be the point of removing them? Sure, not as many people do them, but that's because they take a lot more skill and practice than other events. I'm not a fan of them either, but that doesn't mean they should be removed.

Personally, I think big blind is extremely impressive to watch, and as is previously stated, should still be an event for those blind specialists like Stanley Chapel etc, even though most cubers do not have time to learn to that extent

clock is a decent event,the only problem is clock hardware absolutely sucks and it's on par with magic hardware
i think the issue is that clock is like the harder BLD events,it has a small devoted following

I have no problems with my Clock. It turns smoothly, the pins stay in place. It only took me 30 years to break in!

My point is that the original Rubik's Clock doesn't need to be magnetised. It's just good. ;)
it needs to be magnetised if you're going for wr though,and only 2 companies make clock,neither of which are known for good puzzles
if moyu or qiyi made a clock,we could actually see a huge jump in times just like when the qiyi sqan came out

I came at this for a community POV. The cubing community needs more followers and if we keep events such as multiblind and FMC these events aren't entertaining. I think we should:
REMOVE: FMC, multiblind, clock, and maybe feet.
ADD: 2BLD, and maybe a shape mod like mirror cube.
I think this would add to the community and help cubing grow as a sport
Why does everything have to be so spectator-friendly? The reason we cube is for the enjoyment. It doesn’t have to be spectator friendly to be fun, and if these events are fun and fit reasonably well into the event list, then they shouldn’t be removed.
