    In the case of a too long delay, the last missing players will be declared loser.


  2. Looks good. Old-school Champions League format.
  3. Looking forward to it. [​IMG]

    Finally! :D

    I like the rules. No T-spins and adjustable DAS! <3

    So we're using BlockBox. Time to start practicing seriously then. Not that I really expect to survive the first round. But at the very least I want to prevent a 15-0 humiliation. ^^
  5. Sounds great.
    But I would prefer if we started when blockbox has 8-way input. Which I am hopping is not far off.

    Don't worry jono, you will pass the 1st turn..Don't worry.. [​IMG]

    I already made the groups, this is a real nightmare for some players, and a cool and quiet turn for other..
    But I followed the method initialy set 3 months ago, I will publish it in detail..No need to check if I cheated or not, seeing my group, I think every body will trust me..

    I just wait for 3 last little things now :

    - the 8 way input
    - the garbage method
    - a little simulation between me and deniax to check if everything work correctely..

  8. So pending a few other placements (and the likes of Jono), Blink vs Digital is a good possibility for the final...

    Whatever happens about the last detail : garbages, 8 way, etc...Which are not really important, the contest will start next Monday !!!!
    Actually, as soon as I will return to my job and get internet to edit and publish the groups composition..
    No problem for me if I can't play with internet properly, with my joystick, I have less than 0,00000000000001% of chance to pass the first turn..

    So be ready !!!!!!!!!! and please, try to discuss to find an arrangement about the garbages..
  10. What about the garbage?
  11. Caffeine and Jono in your group Amnesia?
  12. 8-way movements are not important??? Now I know the Tetris-wolrd has officially gone crazy [​IMG] .
    Premature arthritis is very important for me (to avoid that is).

    - Jono

    Please note I was only half serious half joking.

    i'm with Jono, except the part about half joking! arthritis is no laughing matter! and 8-way movement is faster (on keyboard).

    DIGITAL Unregistered

    Yeah, it catches me off guard at times when I expect the piece to have moved or to have moved a certain distance.
  15. Amnesia

    Amnesia Piece of Cake

    Ok ok..We won't start before the 8 way input works properly...Sorry Deniax, you will have some additional job..I will feel bad if I beat jono because he suffer from that..
    For the garbage, I personnaly don't care, try to arrange and negociate it with your opponent...
    For example, if c_t fight with Rosti, they can play alternaly between TGM and random garbages..

    Normaly we arrive at the date I had fixed for the end of this round, but only 9 of the 24 matches has been done..
    So I will let it run for the holidays of the end year.
  16. should just have the same type of garbage for every round of the tournament, what would happen if 2 players don't agree?
  17. Amnesia

    Amnesia Piece of Cake

    I was exactely giving an example for this kind of situation :

  18. Deniax

    Deniax Blockbox developer

    Any specific things I need to know about 8 way input? When I press down+left at the same time, the next frame the piece moves 1 cell to the left and one cell to the bottom?
  19. jujube

    deniax: 8-way simply allows for a piece to be dropped or locked while left or right is being held. this is so the next piece can start moving the same direction as soon as it spawns, which is good if you want to place two or more pieces on the same side of the well. there shouldn't necessarily be an initial shift for the next piece. as far as initial shift goes, it should be controlled by whatever initial behavior you're intending, as something independent from 8-way on/off.

    with 8-way on, the rate at which a piece shifts or drops should just depend on the DAS and gravity settings.
  20. I'm really excited!

    Now is the time to practice Blockbox 40line...
