Okay, lets update a bit (single/average):

2x2: 0.43/1.21
3x3: 3.97/5.44
4x4: 18.01/20.72
5x5: 37.62/42.51
6x6: 1:16.51/1:24.65
7x7: 1:59.87/2:09.56
Skewb: 1.21/1.96
Squan: 5.26/7.48
Pyra: 0.98/1.78
Mega: 28.74/31.51
3x3 OH: 6.65/9.87
3x3 WF: 20.57/23.56 (IDK how the transition to average of 5 will affect his though)
3x3 FMC: 18/23.33
3x3 BLD: 16.82/21.54
4x4 BLD: 1:19.87
5x5 BLD: 2:31.56
3x3 multi: 45/46 59:59.71
Clock: 3.38/4.98

EDIT March 14, 2018: changed one of these, and I will no longer update these predictions.
So here was my last post.... I’m gonna stick to my word and not change any of these. I’m shocked the the 3x3 WR single though. And do note, the 4 and 5 bld were for singles, this was before they started recognizing means.

We are closing in.......

The time this thread was created the world records was (in the end of 2009):

3x3: 7.08 / 10.07

4x4: 36.46 / 43.43

5x5: 1:07.25 / 1:16.75

6x6: 2:15.53 / 2:32.00

7x7: 3:43.15 / 3:57.71

3x3 blind (single only): 49:35

megaminx: 57.94 1:04.34


So in most cases the WRs are cut i half the last 10 years.
I have hard to image that it will continue doing so....
