┈┈┈┈April Fools News:┈┈┈┈

  • Hard Drop Prank Goes Wrong (2021 Colorized)

Continuing Hard Drop’s April Fools tradition of server makeovers, Blink decided to have some crypto-themed fun this year with Uniswap. Soon after, an army of bots and scammers swarmed into the server, and many server members also received DMs about bitcoins. Unfortunately, this put a quick end to his prank. Whoops.

In Other News…

Other community leaders also had pranks to pull; In addition to swapping servers with MMC, Caboozled_Pie and UC hosted UDC Cup, a TETR.IO tournament featuring the best players in the game with some… interesting twists.

  • Facción Tetris had a TETR.IO makeover, and PokeDialga reverted to his roots, converting Thinking Tetris to Thinking Puyo.

For Tetris platforms, osk decided to spread the goodness of pentomino VS in TETR.IO Quickplay. Jstris also joined back in with the traditional TF Items FFA.

  • Being tournament organizers, of course TeamTSD had to host a tournament, and they did so with the most intense invitational Rock, Paper and Scissors tournament that mankind has ever known. JED CHEEKI AND I HAD THE BEST MATCH EVER YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND LOL

  • Underdogs Charity Highly Successful

Through a partnership with fundraising company Extra Life, Caboozled_Pie and UC together raised over $1600 for children’s hospitals. An incredible feat, and an inspiring one as well.

  • Riviclia Subs 25 40L With Mouse

Y’all missed a wild night when Rivi was screensharing mouse gameplay. How does he do it, I don’t understand… While mouse controls are autoaim to an extent, the rotations and suggested placements can be quite unintuitive. The only way to understand how difficult this is is to try it yourself :>
