Watching now. :blink:

 

Had to cut it short, sorry. 

 

Give the first game a watch if the vod is up though, there was some insanity in that!

3 more 3rds tonight and still no win. I don’t know how to cope with the speed when it gets down to the last 3. It’s a horror show. 

 

Whats the vest tactic with 3 left? Just hope you have a good setup and get a couple of quick tetrises?

Oh.... missed live. :( 

 

Edit: HOLY SHIT...that recovery in the first game. How did you stay calm enough to pull it off!

 

I wasn’t feeling calm that’s for sure. That was quite a bit of luck, and I was lucky not to be attacked further while I was recovering.

 

Going to be going live again in a minute, I’m extremely tired but feel like doing some more.

Had 3 wins so far with a number of top ten finishes within that. The best suggestion I took from the Reddit thread was to start off Targeting and then move to KO in the final 50. Seems to work well, and final 5 just seems to be a case of building quick and efficiently and breaking down when you can. You can usually a couple of Tetrises within the space of a few blocks which will shut opponents down.

Can you clarify what you mean by targeting? Individuals or one of the other modes.

This is furiously addictive! I got to second in one game, I feel very lucky. 

 

How do you do a hard drop? I did it once by accident, but trying to do it by pressing all the buttons and I can’t find it again.

Up on the d-pad will hard drop. :)

 

This game is brilliant. My wife has commandeered the Switch. So far we've had three 2nds. We'll get it soon!

How are you people getting into the top 5?! I managed 7th just now and when it was over I wondered why I was feeling dizzy. Turns out I'd literally forgotten to breath!

I'd love to do some 1v1 with you at some point!

 

 

Gimme a shout sometime, I've PPT on PS4 and Switch (and Steam but I don't really like playing that one), so whichever is easiest :)

 

Had fun streaming tonight, despite playing really badly, so will do it again soon!

 

EDIT: I spent far too much time cheating death, but the best one was probably this one:

I am expecting to give you some easy wins, but will be nice to see what I can do to improve. I need to learn to get setups sorted quicker mainly. So will be a good test for sure. 

Switch only here now, so that'll be the platform of choice, which makes for great practice on 99

Only tip I've got - I don't really do strategie,s whenever I try it goes wrong - is to try and keep a Tetris in reserve as much as possible.

 

I like playing on target KO, but might start targeting deliberately. The pieces move pretty slowly early on and you can actually play quite slowly at the start, be prepared to go quick as it drops into the top ten though. If you prep a Tetris combo then it probably is worth having a look around at who might be struggling, as you let the first four line fall into place.

 

When it goes into the top ten I switch to targeting Attacker.

Had one second place....once into the top 10 feels more like luck than skill.....they need to bring in the gold and silver block mechanic from the n64 game.

In contrast to some other comments - playing this, I had no idea I was comparatively this good at Tetris. 

 

I havent got a first yet but I usually come top ten and have had a second place on more than one occasion. Some people KO within the first minute, I’m not sure how that’s possible.

My other half just threw a hissy fit after coming in the top ten and on the next game, coming 92nd. :lol:

Sometimes I think you make one mistake and then the other players smell blood and make you pay for it.

I'm not too good at this, I'm averaging 50th. I've fluked a 17th place once but generally I'm struggling to better a 30 something. I've been watching videos of people with crazy good skill to pick up some tips. What I saw was witchcraft... What the shit is this, how did he get through that gap :lol:

How are people keeping an eye on who to target and playing Tetris at the same time? One or the other for me. 

 

In other news my switch has been stolen and the perp is only interested in Yoshi. So no Tetris for a while.

At the start (and at any time during the game) you can use the right stick to change tactics. Pressing down targets attackers (sorry was using the wrong term), start with this and you'll give as good as you get. When you get to the top 50 or have a breather shortly after you can change to KOs so you're targeting weaker players. This way you initially just defending your corner and then you're actively thinning the herd.

 

I think the best tactic in terms of building is going for Tetrises (I have more of these than any other line clear type in my stats), and then when you can, build down to the junk open lines that are sent your way. Generally around the halfway mark if you can get to a junk opening quickly it'll continue to grow into a Tetris opening naturally as more are junk is sent your way.
