┈┈┈┈Topic of the Week:┈┈┈┈

Four wide is easily the single most broken aspect of modern Tetris. It sends way more than tspins, is much more consistent than perfect clears, and easily spikes opponents with quick fullscreen garbage. Most games have tried to nerf 4w in some way; clipping some height off, changing the combo table, or using line clear delay, but have had varying effectiveness. This week, I just have one question: How can 4w be nerfed?
