  1. @DivCaste. That's a great score, bud! I'm glad you decided to share it

    @Kitaru Hey there, from what I understood, Mr. Louie Skouie was going to be working on updating the leaderboard, thus the format of my last couple PB posts. Is that still a thing he's working on? Just curious, as this was a while ago and I haven't really heard anything since then.
  2. 528.366 is my actual record here, done in Portland at CTWC.

    Got no pic directly from the score but I'm sitting there at #47 on the final qualification score table:

    Was the first time playing on an original console. Only got a NES Mini, which is actually a very bad Emulator. :rolleyes:
    Gonna take some time until I can try to improve my score because lv19 is unplayable on the Mini console.

  4. NEW PB!!

    Level 18 start - Level 24 finish (7 lines)

    Post transition game play was the deciding factor. 425k transition. Year end goal #1 completed. I got my second 600k!

  9. Big leaderboard update, had to input a couple of pages. :o Thanks to everyone for their submissions, and thanks for so many well-formatted posts with start/end levels + lines. :D Let me know if anything was missed or needs adjustment.

    If possible, it also helps a ton to get pre-max score/line and post-max line. I don't enter the fractional lines by hand at the moment, I just add those three numbers to a spreadsheet and let my scoreboard script calculate fractional lines.

    All-time personal best is 825,000, but that was 25 years ago! I only just started playing again and so I feel it’s more fair to put up my current numbers. That said my current PB is 613,400, 156 lines into level 21. Thanks!

  19. @David Lopez A 600k score after just picking NEStris back up after 25 years of no gameplay is ridiculously impressive to me. It really says something about how much playing Tetris really does physically rewire and change your brain. You retained Expert level skills across a quarter century. I suspect that a Max out is in your near future. Nearer than my Max out, to be sure. I would love to see your gameplay. Do you stream on Twitch or maybe upload to YouTube? Also, are you over on the Tetris discords?

    Wow, thank you, Raul, I really appreciate that!! I have to say I started playing Tetris again this past summer and couldn't even break 200k, but then like you said, something clicked in my head and then suddenly it's like the skill retained in my brain for 25 years just let loose and one day it just all came back to me. I average in the 400-500k's and I finally hit that (2nd) 600k score just tonight! Super pumped and can only hope you're right about the max out! The biggest thing right now to me standing in my way to achieving that seems to be my timing on 19 speed. I can do the builds and cleaning, but I tend to do slight misdrops etc because of das adjusting, etc.

    Something that I didn't mention that you might also find impressive is that back 25 years ago I had NEVER tried to max out, etc. I always started my games at Level 0 (9 at the most) because I was always practicing for the NWC competiton. So these scores (besides that one time I hit 825k as a kid) are all new to me. I only just started starting at level 18 in July to practice for the CTWC.

    I just recently started streaming Tetris, although not having too much success with it. My twitch stream is "real_diculous", pay no attention to the Fortnite lol. I think uploading to YouTube is a great idea tho! Not in any discords. Just getting going again :)

    (Quick question: how do I get my score added to the leaderboard list? It looks like I'd be in 69th place for now. Thanks!)
