  • TETR.IO World Championship Concludes

TWC 2023 has finally ended after six months, crowning Diao champion of the first-ever TETR.IO supermajor. Also known as who? ICLY, Diao defeated Blaarg in an insane 11-10 tiebreaker to win the tournament without dropping a single set. Indisputably the largest TETR.IO tournament ever, TWC 2023 was stacked with incredible players and raised a whopping 6800 USD from donations and merch sales.

Drawing inspiration from other Esports streams, the TWC team made multiple production breakthroughs, inventing brand-new scenes and assets to show on stream. osk himself created multiple skins and overlays in the game, staying up until 7 AM to ensure things went smoothly (bro you are insane thank you). In addition, the TWC team hosted preshows, ran analyst segments, and opened up the finals stream with a trailer.

TWC 2023 wasn’t flawless, but it set unprecedented standards for production quality within the Modern Tetris community and brought innovative ideas to light. The staff will soon release a feedback form and welcome everyone to submit their ideas and thoughts about the event.

  • Team TSD Ceases Operations

This week, Team TSD officially closed down and will not be hosting any more events. TeamTSD branded events are discontinued and their assets will also be retired. As one of the first true tournament organizations, Team TSD was a trailblazer for high-quality, large-scale community events, and their majors are sure to be sorely missed.

  • Capybara Chaos

Recently, TETR.IO has opened a special custom room with potential Quickplay updates. Dubbed the FFA TESTING ROOM, it features garbage mechanics inspired by Tetris Friends and Tetris 99. The Payback targeting system sends garbage to anyone targeting the user, and special canceling changes allow for increased survivability. As a result, many players have achieved B2B chain PBs in the room.

According to osk, massive Quickplay changes can be expected in the TETR.IO beta, but targeting changes may come sooner. To try out what could be the new Quickplay, find the special room in the custom room listing, or use code #CAPY to join.

┈┈┈┈Records and Accomplishments:┈┈┈┈
  • rtxile slightly improves the TETR.IO Blitz world record, unfortunately choking the ending. Replay file

  • goeasyonme improves their personal best by almost 9,000 points and takes the Jstris Ultra world record, beating the previous record by a little over 1,000 points!

  • OSW sets double world records in TE:C, grabbing the Journey Mode record for both the beginner and normal difficulty.

  • ihavenolife takes dual world records in MPH sprint — 20L as well as 100L.

  • But VinceHD doesn’t let it last, taking back the 100L MPH Sprint world record not long after he lost it!

  • GrBtAce once again improves the world record. Utilising 8L Triple-Double openers followed by DPC, it squeezes the most score possible out of lower levels!

  • VinceHD sets a personal best in sprint of 15.033s right after winning a TWC set, closing in on sub 15 with a run containing a misdrop. Replay file

  • Flare similarly achieves an amazing 30.08s PPT1 Sprint that instead contains a skim!

  • Finally, ICLY sets a personal best in 40L sprint with a handcam, finishing at 14.615s! Just for fun, he also gets another 14.6s run soon after.
