Hi! I'm Kevin Min,
To start off, 3x3x3 with feet is my main event of the WCA, but please, try to disreguard my bias while reading. Thank you.
3x3x3 with feet was added in 2004, and is a "mean of 3" event. In case you aren't aware, most events in the WCA fall under the "average of 5" category. Events such as 6x6, 7x7 and feet are in the "mean of 3" category, and 3x3 blindfolded, 4x4 blindfolded, 5x5 blindfolded, and Fewest Moves event is in the "best of 3" category. I am here to ask for the 3x3x3 with feet event to fall under the "Average of 5" event. One obvious reason is that it doesn't take up as much time as events such as 6x6 and 7x7 does. As a matter of fact, the official world record single for 3x3x3 with feet, 20.57, is over half of the 5x5x5 world record single (41.27), which is an average of 5 event. Fewest move takes about an hour PER ATTEMPT, while 3x3 with feet mean of 3 takes around maybe less than 10 minutes. The world record will only get faster, the community will only grow, and the feet community should get bigger along the way.
Thanks for considering my thoughts!
