I do not consider that a problem. The best will still win.

I mean, by the rules, I'll win, but it's not fair.

No, I'm not saying this.
I would even go further and say, that someone who memorizes one cube and gets 1/2 is better than someone who memorizes 2 cubes and get 1/2. The first person has solved 100% of the cubes he tried, the other person only 50%. If the second person would have solved 100% of these cube, he would have beaten the other.

Yes, you should win. You still have not provided any argument why this should be unfair. In this scenario you would have chosen the best strategy, so obviously you deserve the win.
If you are happy with winning an event (which likely gives you no benefit) and getting a crappy official MBF result is another point though.

You are asking random questions. But yes, if everyone wants to go for a bad results, then let them do. Facing realitiy though and a decent competition level those people will not really succeed with this strategy.

Why is it a problem ?

So you prefer to assume people are "guilty" than "innocent" ?
Pedro_S wrote:which is "memorise and (try to) solve more than one cube blindfolded".
H1a) Competitor must tell before the start of the event how many puzzles (>1) he wants to solve blindfolded for each attempt.
