Records: [TetrisFriends] Solo and Marathon

  1. you can still get pretty high up without ST stacking, i don't ST stack and i'm currently top rank. About 1/3rd of the top 20 don't ST stack, so it's not the only way to get anywhere on the leaderboard. don't let the lack of knowing how to ST stack discourage you from playing.

    I am realising that I will be very busy if I want maintain this leaderboard..If DIGITAL and caffeine could help, that would be cool..
    I expect that this leaderboard increases and evolutes faster than every other one..

    Tetris Marathon : Does the speed count for the points ??
    Because I did my best game, I mean, the most possible Tetris b2b that I can, until the last line, and struggled at 699k, I played very slowly..

    It's not the speed, but the strategy. Tetris Friends uses the scheme where certain actions(b2b tetris, most t-spins) can actually take away more lines from the Goal than are cleared on the screen. I'm pretty sure your first tetris took away 4 lines(of course), but successive tetrises took 5 each.

    It's great how they never released a detailed page on how score is calculated. [​IMG]

    ... And that's why you should forget Marathon and go to the timed solos.

    Not to mention that Marathon is more gimmicky than skillful. At least with STing, you're required to have a strong sense of T-Spins to pull it off quickly, efficiently, and consistently.

    3 things matter in marathon

    1) hard drop as muchas possible
    2) get partial goal line s(only really possible with single single combo)
    3) make huge scoring clears when you have 1 goal left. (b2btsd)
  12. Here's a video I made for higher scores in Tetris Splash. This will also apply to tetrisfriends... and any other guideline tetris game. I got tired of trying to explain it to people who message me over XBL. Now I just point them to the vid.
