# THE DEATH TOLL

Thread in 'Discussion' started by Rosti LFC, 24 Mar 2015.

1. ### Rosti LFC

Welcome to the 2015 edition of the Carnival of Death, celebrating Tetris's greatest mode, and this year's Death Toll.

Valar Morghulis.
Ave, Imperator, morituri te salutant.
And so on...

The rules are simple. You play Death Mode, you die, you post your best score here, you repeat and you die again. The total number of levels achieved by the community shall become this year's Death Toll

Scores from TAP, MAME, Texmaster, Nullpomino and other clones are accepted, so long as they are played with the proper Death settings (correct speedcurve, TAP randomiser, no floorkicks, ARS, 1 preview, no hold).

"To the well organised mind, Death is but the next great adventure"

Death Toll: 27201

I don't think I'll keep playing today, so here's my best since the carnival started: 492 @ 3:26.50

Wouldn't even have been M, but that's the objective this year, to contribute to the toll with an M score

3. ### Rosti LFC

First M of the Carnival for me, hopefully of many.

am I doing it right?

streaming right now under the title "carnival of suck"

5. ### Rosti LFC

If you're going to post your full list of runs, that typically goes in the other carnival thread (IIRC anyway) and keep this one for new personal bests as they come. Otherwise I'll have a hard time keeping on top of updating things properly if new posts here aren't necessarily all new contributions to the toll (which is the sum of PBs, not the sum of all runs completed by everyone).

6. ### Awez

Well, I guess now would be a good time to make my first post (why not lol)
318 @ 2:25.46
got absolutely raped by the speed increase at 300 though

I wasn't gonna edit it, but I can see it getting messy, I just wanted to bulk up the death toll with my shitty runs what's this other thread you speak of?

found it!

GM is hardly to achieve when playing on a laptop even without locking (time says it all)

Oh god, I just entered the community and I find myself in such a fun event. I might stream tomorrow at 6 PM (GMT-4), so if you wanna see a noob suck at TAP Death on MAME, come by and say hi!

I can get an M, but not tonight. I got 500 earlier today, but I didn't bother to note the time exactly because it wasn't the 25th yet where I live. It was 3:27.something

Got my 3/25 started with a couple games. I'll leave things with a 623 for now and come back to it (hopefully streaming?) later.
