He is just saying

Keep on cracking in MTC3 – according to our practice later solvers get less points than the first one solving a level X challenge!

Do you know how five letter blocks relate to the codeword?

Hello,
thanks for this question: This challenge is still open, as the complete solution is not published yet, only a hint about the blocks.
So, as ToSch wrote, "Keep on cracking (this challenge) in MTC3 – according to our practice, later solvers get less points than the first one solving a level X challenge".
Best regards, Be.
