In case you didn't catch the announcement on Facebook, this year's Classic Tetris World Championships will also include a multiplayer versus tournament played on the SNES Tetris & Dr. Mario cart. (The game you've been seeing caffeine & vipjun stream lately)

Entry fee is $5, and you may retry as many times as you're willing to stand in line for. Qualifying attempts will be graded by highest score in single-player B-type tetris, starting from level 9, height 0.

Qualifiers will be Saturday, October 15th between 10:00AM and 3:00PM PST. Finals will start at 3:00PM; the event closes at 6PM.

The top 16 seeds will be put into an elimination bracket for the main event that same evening, played as first-to-three matches. These matches will be 2-player A-type, with both players starting on level 9.

You are allowed to bring your own controller, so long as it is an original, unmodified standard SNES controller.

The winner gets a trophy and an FC Mobile II.


I may need some volunteers to help officiate, please PM me if you can help out.

Post if you're going!

Whoa, Mr. AllSpin organizing an oldskool tetris tourney and sponsoring prizes? Now everything makes sense. I didn't expect it though.

Is the qualifying modus fixed? I'd prefer Level 9 & Height 4 over Level 9 & Height 0, because the scores would differ more and Level 9 & Height 4 is more about making good decisions in difficult situations (as Multiplayer is). In Level 9 & Height 0, the first spots will go to people making 7 Tetrises, and the rest to people making 6 Tetrises.

Soft drop points will be rather unimportant for the players who finish with 6 Tetrises. There's more important how many lines you clear. 28 lines will beat 27 lines 9 times out of 10 (no matter of soft drop), although 27 lines has a higher tetris per cleared lines ratio.

If there are enough participants, then it is probable that the 17th and 18th place will have made as many Tetrises as the 15th and 16th place. And I find it hard to send people home just because they didn't cleared a further Single before their last Tetris.

I'm not sponsoring the prizes, I assume TTC is. The rules are fixed and nothing I can do about it, so make the best of it. Perhaps I can have more of an influence on the setup if there is a next time.

kk

Anything what I said, can be ignored anyway. I noticed that you can't see on which level and height you did your highscore. So you must play level 9 & height 0 because that's the way how you score as high as possible.

yeah, we did a b mode thing once in NES and it immediatley devolved into pushdown points. The thing is though, i think SNES has that B mode things where you keep playing higher and higher levels until you finally die. I imagine that is what this is. If its a level 9-0 25 liner i can think of 20+ people who can do that in their sleep who will be in attendance... it would just get silly.

If the randomizer cooperates. ;D

starting from level 9, height 0.

∴ It is not B-type Marathon.

B-type will come down to push down if enough people are good enough to get 7 tetrises...which is probably going to be the case. A-type takes way to damn long on snes though, so b-type it is.

My suggestion is: B-type, 9-5, your score = total pieces used to finish the game (less is better).

I highly doubt I'd be able to make this anyway, but out of curiosity how is the head-to-head going to go? First to KO or most lines within a time limit? When we did Denver Tetris League way back they had a First to KO or most lines in 3 Minutes so that's why I ask? I may have to start practicing ha ha if there is a time limit there are so many more strategies, which is why I'm curious.

9-5 for score would actually be a pretty good challenge. I would really caution against 9-0 as there will be so many players at that speed getting 7 tetris you might have people getting 7 and not making the cut, even with 16 slots. 9-5 is messy, nicely so and would create a less all way tie looking leaderboard. At MGC one year we used NES 5-5 high score, and as awkward a deal as that is, it was actually a perfectly fine thing really, and so would 9-5 be.
