The Classic Tetris World Championship has just been announced to be on Sunday, October 16, 2011 at 10 AM (PDT). It will be at the Bovard Auditorium at USC. Just wondering if any other HD members are going/would go if others are there (hi Kitaru). I'll keep information posted here as it comes, and here's a link to the official CTWC Facebook page.

The Classic Tetris World Championship has just been announced to be on Sunday, October 16, 2011. It's likely to be in Los Angeles, which means I'm attending.

Just curious, what's the grand prize? And is it still the NES version? Not to be cocky, but I'm really good at that version, I'm not going to lie. I have maxed out the score 3 times in a row before.

99% chance I'll be participating in the PS3 tournament even though I haven't played a single game of PS3 Tetris yet.

If you guys want to get some HD T-shirts and wear them to the event with me let me know, I'll get to work on them.

I have a TGM3 shirt, so I'll probably wear that. Last year I was pretty understated with an Arika shirt that pretty much only Henk commented on. Sticking Out Tongue.png

I don't really like what this tournament is doing because it reinforces that popular notion that Tetris hasn't changed since 1989.

I can't seem to google anything about the 2011 tournament but I'm happy to hear there's a PS3 version. This was painful to watch with no hard drop, yet I know what they are doing is hard since the pieces lock so easily in that version.

It's not that exciting but here's a video of last year's final round in case anyone missed it:

Pyrrhonian disclaimer: If I use assertive language, then I only do so as a manner of speaking. I might say "the sun will rise tomorrow", but deep down, like anything else, I can never really know that. So if I ever make a strong claim, it's probably because I am that much more unsure of it and am hoping to provoke correction.
