Will Clock get removed as an official event?

I would argue that clock is objectively worse than feet and yet feet is being removed, therefore I think it is likely clock will be removed.
Having said this I think both events are good and the reasons to have them removed are not stronger than the reasons to be kept and Currently believe no WCA events should be removed

If you have to argue it then it’s probably not objective :p

I think clock will remain an event for the following reasons. It IS a twisty puzzle, I mean you twist it and its a puzzle lol. It's not like any other event, feet is like 3x3 and OH, but clock is completely unique. Its gaining popularity, I've seen a ton of people get into clock over the past year, and with the angstrom clock coming out I think its popularity will only continue to rise, however with feet, its popularity hasn't been high at all (at least until they announced its removal). Lastly its a challenging event to get good at, making competitions sometimes unpredictable due to someone good dnfing their average. Lastly its a pretty beginner friendly event, It required no algs and I learned how to do it in 2 minutes completely intuitively.

Not a twisty puzzle by most definitions.

I’m interested to see how much it is grown compared to other events, I made a post in wca statistics and will give and update if anyone gives me numbers.

not really challenging at all lol, it’s just practice, learning a few of the basics and spamming comps

that’s one of my least favorite things about clock, it’s overly simple. Unlike other puzzles though it’s trivial on all levels. At least for Pyra you can move up from Bob burtons method to LBL to L4E and you can learn a bunch of stuff, Clock you learn almost nothing.

I personally have no preference for clock as an event, I don't pay much attention to it. However, I'd like it kept(and feet as well, but thats another discussion), as there are people who have put a lot of time into it and like it.
