Nice retort. I'm glad you took the time to constructively criticize my argument.

Bombs are pretty silly and are just a gimmick imo.
I don't disagree that it's a gimmick. The game is definitely aimed at more casual players because bombs are easier to downstack, but that doesn't make the game easier. Sure, it's easier for you to downstack and send lines, but it's easier for your opponent to downstack and send lines as well. Not to mention they got rid of garbage blocking which makes the gameplay a lot different from regular Tetris Friends (for instance, timing isn't as important). You can call it a gimmick if you want. c; But that doesn't stop it from adding interesting/different mechanics.
I also think that any Tetris Battle tournament should be played with bombs because bomb garbage is what makes Tetris Battle unique from other games.
