Hello,
Back last year, people were saying how stickerless cubes woould be made legal in 2015. However, I have checked the WCA regulations and they said, "Puzzles must have coloured parts, which must be one of the following: coloured stickers, coloured tiles, coloured plastic, or painted/printed colours." This is a bit unclear, it never explicitly says anything about their allowance. I also couldn't find anyone on the forums stating this. Are they allowed now, or do I have to keep buying packs of 6...
Thanks

From what I've heard, the WCA wants to make stickerless cubes legal, but they're having trouble figuring out how to reword the rules as not to allow cubes that actually give an unfair advantage.

3h2) Puzzles whose coloured parts are visible inside the puzzle are not permitted.
EDIT: right, totally misunderstood the question. sorry about that.

Thanks for this totally useless answer. The question asked is not "what do the WCA regulations currently say" (I guess Please dont Ask can read too) but "which kind of change is planned for the near futuer".

FWIW, I've heard the same as willtri4.

Yep.

Indeed, this is why "stickerless cubes" are still not legal.

Get rid of 3h2 and it'll be fine. If everyone has the choice to have the "advantage" of seeing the inside parts, is it really an advantage?
