Why only 1 week for registration? Maybe extend that to 2 weeks, especially now that the community is not as active and people might forget?

HYPE!

Nice prizes, but why does 2nd or 3rd have to look more tempting than 1st? lol

Pssh, first place looks amazing. Chromebooks are the best, and mine is 3 years old now, might need to win this for a new one. Crazy.png

I've found in the past that the further away registration is from the tournament, the higher the amount of people who forget or don't show up.

No worries, I'm sending a mass e-mail out to members when registration opens.

Hi everybody.

I feel embarassed... I have not used TetrisFriends for ages. I am stucked at the 1st upgrade (2/5), my game is slow as fuck... I will never have enough time to upgrade it at max and I will not pay for that. How will be the setting for the matches ? Will it be restricted at something similar for everybody ? If not, then I thin I am fucked Frown.png

Hi Amnesia! Custom DAS/AR is allowed for this tournament.

Edit that link to your liking. This only works in Expert PLUS rooms.

Posted by: Amnesia Jul 25 2016, 04:29 PM

I don't get it. If I open your link, I arrive into the platinum class, but from there, my IHS and IRS are still disabled

Use that link and then join or create a room with Expert PLUS mode. Let me know if you feel any difference.

Whoa, I just randomly decided to check in on Harddrop for the first time in a year, and hey, it's TTO4!! Only problem is I also haven't played Tetris regularly in a year . . in fact, I was attempting some Tetris Friends just now and could barely remember how to T-spin.

Hi I would like to join. my user is jelloshaha.

Edit: Ooops. I found the link!

Posted by: Amnesia Jul 26 2016, 10:45 PM

Thank you Blink, I could have some games with full speed.
I am happy to see that with these timing I can finaly beat the lv 20 players. (Well..Sometimes)

Also sometimes : the timings go back to the slow one and I don't know why, it happens when I change room.. I have no idea of what is the EXPERT PLUS mode, I have never seen this on the interface. What I see is only PLATINUM lists..

About the SPRINT mode, can I use a link as well to play this mode with fast timings ?

Posted by: WillyTris Aug 1 2016, 08:27 PM

So, When does the tournament start? It started now or it starts a few days later?

Posted by: Amnesia Aug 2 2016, 08:37 AM

Registration is closed and matches can start.

I have a "better" question Grin.png

How am I supposed to search a player ?? I can't see the "SEARCH" box here on HD.
I must look for summerburst

Is the tournament being streamed or recorded? Commentary and such like the last ones?
P.S.. This is my first post on hard drop. Thumbs Up.png

Posted by: TGGC Aug 5 2016, 11:54 AM

Is there anywhere a description how to setupt the "Expert PLUS mode, Non-ranked room, Solid Garbage ON, Spectators ON Items OFF, Maps OFF" stuff mentioned on the tournamenat page? I rarely play any 1v1 on TF.

Posted by: ZeroT Aug 5 2016, 04:11 PM

In TetrisFriends Arena, in the top right click create room. Check Non Ranked and in the bottom right Expert Mode and subsequently Expert PLUS. Also make sure its a room for two players and no maps or items are selected. If not all of these options are available or you continue to have trouble, please drop a comment in the shoutbox. We can assist you or even create a room for you.

Posted by: Blink Aug 5 2016, 05:16 PM

Rescheduled: thelonghorned1 and lkngan7d is set for 10am today (going on now).

The Expert Settings are greyed out for me, because I'm neither Gold nor Platinum ;-).

Due to a broken keyboard (modernbenoni) we postponed our match till tomorrow (Sunday 9PM GMT).

Master - cmiley_com rescheduled to Friday 1AM PDT (= Friday 10AM CEST, 9 hour diff)

Posted by: Amnesia Aug 10 2016, 05:54 PM

Let me say that this was completly bullshit...
I am really sorry to tell that but just don't come again with automatical messages to take me out of TGM and attend to your activities if it has to be like this.

I have tried to seriously recover my best vs level to share skill with the HD community...I play TGM 99,9% of the time usually but I was enthousiastic to attend this in the most serious conditions.

First of all this was a really complex thing for the "not used player" that I am to understand your organisation.
Once I understand it, and after that I come back from my Holidays to play the match ...

(Reminder here : if you don't want to cancel 25% of the matches, do your tournament in November, not in August where people are ofter outside...)

... And I see that just when my opponent and I are ready, she is already kicked out, ok fine, I would have won probably, but even more stupid : I am already kicked out from the 2nd turn !! just 2 days after.

So I don't give a shit about your reasons, just remove me from HD I am done with the WORLD company...

what do you really mean? before the registration of the tournament it already says to "play at least a match in a week on time ", and most people are free to play during july and august since it's summer break...they won't have time in November because of schools...or work maybe...you didn't have to join the tournament if you don't have time or couldn't make a appointment match on time.
and sure you get disqualified in you can't make a match on the default time...or else you have to schedule with your opponent and inform the people who are responsible for the tournament on harddrop.

you said you got kicked out after your first opponent got kicked out...maybe that's some error with the bracket, you might inform harddrop or Blink or whoever organizes the challonge.com to get things right. if you can't play at default time, private message to your opponent.

Amnesia, you were a no show and got dropped. If you had trouble understanding the rules you could have asked me, after all I've been responding to your PMs and answering your TTO questions the week leading up to your match. I know you were excited about the tournament and training hard for it, but I wasn't going to give you any special treatment and hold up the tournament just because you were on holiday. You could have rescheduled and given me a time, but you didn't.

The reason you didn't have a round 2 match is because you were already dropped in round 1. This is currently a single elimination bracket.

I'm not sure what you mean by WORLD company: for years we've promoted NES Tetris, TGM streams, fanmade clones like BB/C2/NP/ShootingStar/JSTris as well as official guideline games. The community as a whole plays a ton of variants with all sorts of rotation systems.
