┈┈┈┈Player Interviews: cz0402┈┈┈┈
Although he’s a relative newcomer to the competitive Tetris scene, cz has quickly risen to become widely considered as the single best TETR.IO player. Famous for implementing macroplay into his playstyle, and infamous for triple rotating, banter and not showering, this Malaysian 16 year old continues to amaze onlookers, consistently defeating other top players and putting up incredible scores against bots. Read on to learn more about cz!

  • Q. How did you get your nickname? What does it mean?

cz is from my real name which I don't want to reveal it and 0402 is came from my birthday you heard it here folks^^^

  • Q. How long have you been playing Tetris?

9 years

  • Q. How did you get into playing Tetris? Why did you start, and what was your first game?

I first started Tetris Battle in the start of 2012 when I saw my siblings played it in 2011.

  • Q. Who are some players you look up to? Why?

Noomoi, because he is my senpai and he is the reason I improved a lot and what I become today.

  • Q. Which Tetris platform or gamemode is your favorite? Why?

TETR.IO, cause I like the high pace combo multiplier table,b2b and passthroughs added more timing skill expression to the game.

  • Q.What is macroplay? What exactly does it mean, and how can I use it?

macro is a decision making skill that everyone haves, even if you did bad descisions it still a macroplay. An example is if you are at the top and opponent ready to send u the garbage would you just no timing and send back or would you wait for garbage to cancel to prevent passthrough

  • Q. How do you practice? Do you have any advice for improvement?

I didn't have special ways to practice. But I can said is try to know when its good to send clean/cheese. If you have good position then clean garbage better but if you are at danger position then you need to lower the pace of the game by sending cheese or block your opponent garbage. And mostly just accept clean garbage to spike back, don't accept cheese unless you think your full spike setup can topout your opponent then you can just accept it.

  • Q. Which achievements are you most proud of?

Become one of the best Tetris players, Sub 19 with triple rotate

  • Q. What keyboard or controller do you use?

Laptop keyboard

  • Q. What's your favorite food?

fried rice

  • Q. What's your favorite color?


  • Q. Are you single?


  • Q. If you had one chance to wish for anything, what would you wish for?

Wish I can play tetris forever

Thank you so much!! Is there anything you would like to say? Thanks for interview :D
