In 6 years? Not only will the WR for MBLD be much higher than that, but a 50 point effort will fail to podium at a major competition. US Nationals 2025 will have the first 170+ point MBLD podium.
Actually, I know there has been some talk about decreasing the time limit to 10 minutes (stackmattable!); considering the fact that people have to bring whole suitcases of cubes, it's not an unreasonable idea. So perhaps I'd like to predict that the WR for MBLD will be more like 18 points (which is quite scary, actually, but I think it's possible!) (although that boggles my mind - 18 cubes in 10 minutes).

I sincerely hope that doesn’t happen. One hour is an easy amount of time to schedule, bringing suitcases full of cubes is only applicable for a few people and not that big of a deal, and changing the time limit would fundamentally change the nature of what is currently a really cool and unique event. I don’t think it would be unreasonable to design a cubing-specific timer that would go up to an hour. In most cases 10 minutes is fine, but big blind and multi blind, and occasionally big cubes, there is definitely an application for a timer similar to a stackmat but with an extra digit. That seems to me to be a much better solution than limiting MBLD to 10 minutes.
