Technically i see some improvements on this from TF arena. You can now see bonus of your opponent (double, triple, tetris, combo number, etc) just like on TOJ. Also your opponent field is less laggy and glitchy than on TF.

I don't even want to comment on lives/KO system, it's so terribly broken.

But anyway I have to admit this is huge improvement over fake TB Multiplayer.

I think having lives is a good idea, the KO system not so much. One other problem with lives is that when you top out you have like top out delay or something.

Acemagic seems to be pretty open to suggestions so you should mention stuff to him.

I maxed das or left/right, but it still very slow,
especially to get it all the way to the wall, hopefully this can be improved so it's more like fastest settings on TF?

To be specific, I think we'd be generally happy with a 0 delay autorepeat (aka 1G or less) and at most around a 110ish ms DAR/DAS/whatever you want to call it. It depends on the game, but I like anywhere from 66 to 110ms for this value.

I just tried facebook tetris for the first time. The Graphics and everything were cool and job well done.

It just seemed to lack options for the most basic thing that every single player regardless of skill considers before the very first time they play. PLAY CONTROL options. I spilled OJ on my arrow keys so they dont work anymore. And it seems like you can only rotate one way. Im not saying it is not possible to customize the play control. Im just saying it was not immediately obvious how I might change this. It should be. The VERY FIRST thing a player considers, even before their first game, is how to input controls.

Ive been encouraging people to start playing tetris. A nice girl I work with told me specifically that she tried facebook tetris but the controls werent acceptable and it was therefore boring so she quit. She specifically told me that she played 2 games but couldnt figure out how to move the pieces. I spent months trying to get this person to try tetris.

All the fancy graphics and sound effects dont mean anything if players cant control the game. New people will just turn their back if they cant figure it out promptly. Play control needs to be immediately obvious and customizable.

These are my thoughts,
