lol single nobody is ever going to get a sub-25 5x5 average

Anyway, here's mine: (single, average)
2x2: 0.35, 0.88
3x3: 3.32, 4.75
4x4: 16.97, 18.76
5x5: 32.56, 39.64
6x6: 59.67, 1:05.16
7x7: 1:40.51, 1:52.48

Ill edit this post with the rest of the events later.
Hey, he said it was a little bit of a stretch.....But you for sure have a point.

If you want another excuse for my lack of effort, I am sick.

3x3: sub-3.90, sub-4.70
4x4: sub-16, sub-19.50
5x5: sub-29, sub-34

I think there will also be at least 1 new WCA event.

5BLD - 2:57.87
MBLD - 59/60 in 59:50

Honestly can't wait to see how wrong I am. I tried to make these sound ridiculous now, because the future records will seem ridiculous/impossible to us. With the insanely fast growth rate of cubing, I wouldn't be surprised if we see large, specialized communities develop around more events, kind of like what we've seen with 3BLD and MBLD recently. I feel like most events won't have a single dominating person, but rather an entire group of people who are all equally skilled and capable of getting WRs.

(Also, I'd like to predict that some events would be added and some would be removed, but that's a shot in the dark at this point. Really hard to say what will be trending enough to become an event between now and then.)

I am giving a prediction on only 3x3
Single: 3.306
Avg: 3.724


But why this specific. Well, that is because with some unreliable calculations, taking the average time drop of the single and average wr since 2012, we get-
Single -.214
avg -.346

I took this information into excel and subtracted that from the current wr. Then I took that time and subtracted again. Assuming a wr is broken at least yearly. By 2025 we will have 3.306single and 3.724avg.

So according to this unreliable data that probably is wrong, here is the timeline
(year - single wr - average wr)
19 4.59 5.8
20 4.376 5.454
21 4.162 5.108
22 3.948 4.762
23 3.734 4.416
24 3.52 4.07
25 3.306 3.724
26 3.092 3.378
27 2.878 3.032
28 2.664 2.686
29 2.45 2.34
30 2.236 1.994
31 2.022 1.648
32 1.808 1.302
33 1.594 0.956
34 1.38 0.61
35 1.166 0.264
36 0.952 -0.082
37 0.738 -0.428
38 0.524 -0.774
39 0.31 -1.12
40 0.096 -1.466
41 -0.118 -1.812
42 -0.332 -2.158
43 -0.546 -2.504
44 -0.76 -2.85
45 -0.974 -3.196
46 -1.188 -3.542
47 -1.402 -3.888
48 -1.616 -4.234
49 -1.83 -4.58
50 -2.044 -4.926

Im sorry, but no. Unless someone like Max or whoever is pro then gets something like an edge paring skip, not happening. (no offense though)
How can we say? Back in the day if someone said that there would be official sub-40s on 5x5, we would have called them insane. It may seem out of reach now, but I honestly think anything is possible. 4x4 hardware still has a ways to go, and I'm sure that Yau/Hoya are not the best speedsolving methods.

I wouldn't be so sure. I remember maybe not even a year ago the 3BLD UWR was ~16, and now I believe it is ~12. Right now the 4x4 is ~17, so, someone'll probably have to get really lucky, it may be possible.
