  4. Finally broke 400k! (...he says after 2 weeks of playing)

    401,200 on level 18. I died promptly after hitting the transition with a messy stack.

    At this point I'm getting reasonably consistent at level 18 play, since I can have "markers" like in TGM (2 taps left for this piece to go to that column, full-on hypertap to get the next piece all the way to the side, etc) until I get a tall stack. I'm mostly dying when I forget to start skimming before I'm halfway up the well & the randomizer punishes my more TGM-like stacking habits.

    Level 19 not so, unless I'm playing very conservatively down at the bottom of the well. Otherwise, it's just nonstop hypertapping, which I'm slowly getting more consistent at, but it's still more like skill stopping the piece where you want it. I like that the essence of what makes NES Tetris, well, NES Tetris is still intrinsic to level 19 no matter how you play. I'm dying as much for hesitation reasons as for misdrop reasons, so it's hard to say how I'll progress on this, but I get the sense that I'm learning a new skill in a qualitatively different way for level 19 versus level 18, in addition to the quantitative increase in difficulty. I'm also just plain more experienced at TGM1/level 18 speeds than I am at Death/level 19 speeds. So there are several hurdles to overcome here, whereas level 18 seems more a matter of optimizing my intuition around the new (to me) randomizer & piece mobility combo.

    Hopefully there will be more to come sooner than later!

    Thank you Chad! Since getting my new CRT I scored a 476k on a L19 start! Hoping to get that perfect L18 into post 19 game for the maxout sooner than later! Thanks for the encouragement!
  12. Hello everyone! I'm new and hope that my personal best can count for this leaderboard.

    I didn't have a video but I did take a screenshot. I am using FCEUX 2.2.2 to play.

    This is when I submitted it to Jonas Neubauer's discord, and I don't know if it's enough proof to count, but hopefully I can get a better score later, on video.

    I see a lot of people using this format so I'll also use it.

    Score: 588.772 points (level 18 start, 140 lines, level 20 finish)
    Date: 20.02.2019
    Hardware: FCEUX 2.2.3 (emulator) + Data Frog NES controller

    I started my adventure with the Classic Tetris just two months ago, inspired after watching the CTWC 2018 final match. So far I still train level 18, wanting to get at least 600k points (and I'm already so close). Then I will train level 19 and higher. My goal is to join the max out team. And when it happens, I will take the PAL version.

    I am a huge fan of NES, with whom I have not been separated for over 20 years. In particular, I love platformers, but I do not despise puzzle games. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the actual console, so I play on the emulator using a clone of the original gamepad (like this). I use the save state function to keep the three best results.

    Well, I said hello, so good luck to all and I hope that soon I will come back with a new record. ;)
