For the past few weeks I've been focusing on getting my skills back on TetriNET2, and noticed that while I am definitely improving on there, my skills in just about every other game are starting to deteriorate. I misdrop alot whenever I go back to TOJ or TF Arena. Last night during a TOJ session I hesitated and felt confused about what to do during alot of situations. TetriNET was my first Tetris love, and got me addicted to the game... but I don't know if it's worth it to attempt to get back to the level I was 4 years ago. There's a very strong demon running loose in the Tetris world - hebo-MAI - and if I spend too much time on TNET2 he'll reach a point where it would be too hard to catch up and slay him.

I'll probably just use TetriNET as a chatroom, because I do love all the people on there. Even though most of us never met we sort of grew up together and became close over the years. Definitely a great game, and although it's like 9 years old its better than alot of Tetris games out today.
Out of all the multiplayer Tetris games I've played, I'd probably rank my 5 favorites in this order:
1. Tetris Online Japan
3. Tetris DS
5. Tetris Friends Arena
Tetris Friends Arena might climb the ranks now with its new Expert PLUS mode adding garbage blocking. It really shows alot of potential, especially with the spectator support that TOJ lacks.
Other than Tetris, I'll be on vacation next week for a month in Vietnam for my older brother's wedding. Hopefully people don't start causing trouble on the site while I'm gone, I'll mod a few people to help take care of things incase. Maybe jujube, caffeine, ohitsstef, and other people I trust. When I get back the site has some things that need to be worked on, they'll probably take a long time so don't expect anything soon (especially with school starting back up): Fix the search display as posts feature on forums, A ladder system, integrated wiki (auto login), and move to a new webhost.
