Clock is simply because it is not a twisty puzzle
I hate it when people say this. It's not technically a twisty puzzle, but it has the same functionality in that it's different each time, which is why Magic was removed and I just don't like cupstacking. Clock is just a nice puzzle, and it's got as much right to be in the WCA as SQ1, OH and FT.

I feel like this has become the Clock'n'Feet thread.

Don't get me wrong, I love Square-1 as a puzzle, but it shouldn't be a speed event.

Why not? It's extremely impressive how fast world-class people are at square-1.

If your sentiment is that it's too algorithmic, not a lot of algorithms are needed to be fairly fast and there are more intuitive block building methods that have potential as well.

Did you happen to read the rest of the reason why I don't think clock should be official?

If you did, you would know that I go on to say that since it is only non-twisty WCA puzzle, it stands out. Either add more perhaps 15 puzzle or geranium puzzle; or remove clock altogether. In the current state it makes no sense why it is an event. It would be like if a car company decided to make one motorcycle, but no more. If you are going to branch out, then don't do half the job, or leave it incomplete.

or to buy a dayan
Got mini dayan too. I got mini witeden, my parents took all my cubes and ofc min witeden get lost -_-. Also my dayan got too much Mary 1/3 of this bottle than fall on ground when I was running and now it is super loud. I was trying to repair but it is dead. And that's why I couldn't use it on lessons.

This is just your opinion, not a fact ;) I personally think it should be removed.

I really enjoy feet, and I think it adds a new challenge that no one has really considered. I know it seems gross to some, but other than that I don't really see how it is so bad. It is just adding a restriction, along the lines of OH and BLD.
