I didn't see it discussed on the esl page, but right now i have six esl tabs open so maybe I'm missing it, but this competition must
be no items and expert plus.
Actually, on the details page it says "When special flashing blocks are cleared, the player is awarded with a randomly selected item that harms the opponent in some way. Items can cause more garbage, speed up the game for the opponent, or even make the blocks invisible, amongst other things."
The best analogy I can think of off the top of my head is that this would be like thinking a super smash brothers game with items on proved who the best player was. I can confidently say that every single player here wants no items.
Just as important is that it be expert plus be mandatory. Reasons e+ is better aside, we fought for those rule changes to be implemented for a long time. They are the only reason anyone on this site have taken results from TF competitions seriously.
e+ makes the garbage sent messier, because otherwise 10+ lines of garbage with the same hole can be sent consecutively. e+ allows garbage blocking, making sure that combos aren't massivley overpowered. e+ allows soft drops, so expert can do tspins and fix mistakes in a timely manner.
Now that that's out of the way, I just want to say how MASSIVELY EXCITED I AM this is happening. I literally raised my arms and cheered "WOOOOOOOO WE'RE AN ESPORT NOW" and my roomates told me to be quiet.
