I know a lot of people have been trying to get secret form so i wanted to help you guys out. It took me about 2 hours to figure out all this stuff and complete my first secret form. and then i realized most of what i learned was on the wiki page. omg.gif Secret_Grade_Techniques

I learned the general strategy from watching a couple replays and kitaru's videos.

and i made some diagrams from some secret grade games ive completed.

Some other general HINTS are:

When you get near the top, complete the staircase first, then finish the overhang. Dont try to complete 1 hole at a time.

If you use SRS rotation system, use infinite rotate to your advantage, you can create time to think or "climb" up surfaces. for instance, when you are at the very top, you can place pieces on top of the game area where they cannot be seen but will not result in a loss. A loss occurs when the next pieces is unable to spawn due to another piece blocking it.

Get as few line clears as possible to keep the pieces dropping slower. its possible to finish with only 2 line clears.



good luck!

I saw a picture of that form as someones profile picture, so i tried it cuz i was bored of my terrible sprint times after starting tetris again. Anyway, I was able to do it after a few tries, but i had a lot of line clears when i did it...like, too many

This is something that takes a little time to get your hand around, but with practice, it gets very easy to do.

I've also posted several videos, which I hope will help other people who are just starting to learn and try this technique.
