WPLC Socal22 Results.png

WPLC SoCal Comes to a Close

Hosted last weekend on June 4th, WPLC was one of the biggest LAN tournaments ever for Modern Tetris. This tournament had a total prizepool of $5341.39 USD, the most of any Modern Tetris event. More information can be found here:

Throughout the LAN, 3 main brackets and one side bracket took place. The main games were Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, TETR.IO and Tetris Effect: Connected, while the side bracket featured PPT2 Swap.

Although three brackets finished in time, the same could not be said for Tetris Effect Connected. BeastinShen improvised by running the final few matches online, in a separate stream a week later, once everyone had gotten back home.

This tournament marks the beginning of the paradigm shift towards offline events, inspiring many organizers to run LANs of their own. Maybe you could be the next!

Team ඞ Wins Ads20000's Birthday Battle

Edge, Kec, and rheeneetus won Ads20000’s Birthday Battle last week as Team ඞ. While Edge was originally the leader of the Edgers, he ultimately swapped teams with Haavard due to a secret rule. As Haavard did not show up in time to play in the True Finals, the Edgers were disqualified, giving ඞ the victory.

Put together by Azura, Choco, and Kamoto, ABB was a surprise invitational 3-player team tournament that took place on June 17th UTC to celebrate Ads20000’s birthday. Azura's graphics were inspired by one of Ads' favourite games: Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

It has been nearly a year since TAWS started, so ABB was not only a celebration for the TAWS owner, but also the large staff team that keeps TAWS running. Still, there may be another TAWS milestone celebration coming up soon, so keep an eye out...!

┈┈┈┈Records and Accomplishments:┈┈┈┈

  • hiryu achieves perhaps his most consistent sprint ever, beating Reset_ and taking the 40L sprint WR! This 14.703 second run features a nearly flat speed graph, 2.59 average KPP and 6.87 average PPS for 101 pieces. Absolutely insane, amazing job and congratulations!

Reported by Syperion

  • Tetrian22 continues to solidify his position as the pentomino master with yet another WR improvement! This time it’s the pento 1000L WR, which at 18:58.220 is nearly 10 minutes ahead of second place! It’s definitely also worth noting that only 12 people have managed to complete this gamemode in Jstris, which just goes to show just how insane this WR is.

He also subs 1:30 in pento 100L, increasing the gap between him and 2nd place to nearly 30 seconds!

Reported by QuickAndSmart

  • GigaWhatGaming achieves the overall PPT Western 40L Sprint record, surpassing Jayden and the previous WR by 0.01 to become the 3rd western player to sub 32!
