Anyone else enjoying this? According to my friends list, a lot of you are!
First off... it's Tetris, so I mean, it's got that going for it. But who knew it could be so much fun to compete against 98 other people while playing Tetris?
I'm not sure how much strategy there is to it. The game's lack of... any information whatsoever makes it hard to decipher exactly what the rules are. Looking forward to other people figuring it out and posting about it.
The Pro Controller's broken d-pad puts you at an automatic disadvantage, though, since you're forced to disable hard drop. I bet this game would be a ton of fun with the NES Controller, but I don't think there's any way to target people with it!
Oh yeah, that Tetris tournament starts today, doesn't it? Anyone here going to try it? I don't think I will, I figure there will be at least 999 no-lifers who play all 48 hours of it and win simply from the law of averages, hee hee.
I'll give it a try just for fun. So far, I've only managed top 10 a few times, with a 2nd place as my best. I also haven't really had time to play these last 2 weeks, so who knows, maybe going in fresh will help :)
