Hah! "Around New England" may be pushing it, but yes, I did post on DDRFreak/AIJ/ITGFreak back in the day, probably about 10 years ago or so now. And I did go to a tournament or two, including one where to this day I have no idea how I placed 4th (I'm not saying this to be modest--I don't think anyone was quite sure what scoring system they used, though as I recall our collective best guess was that the people running the tournament [Who were basically just staff of the arcade in the mall and had no idea how DDR tournaments really worked] misinterpreted "OK" in the rules they printed out to mean "Good"*). I certainly did play a bunch of DDR/ITG in CT though!

And thanks!

*for those who don't play Dance Dance Revolution, the short version is that these are two quite different things in that game, even though they mean the same thing in common English. Confusing one for the other would lead to very different tournament results.

Hello,

1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player?
I have always wanted to get into the TGM games after seeing them on GDQ, however only now have I gotten bored enough of other games to jump into TGM1. I got my PCB in last Friday. No I would not, I only today got to S1 finally.

2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?
Just TGM1 right now, if anybody knows where all the Ti went and if TAP ever comes down a little in price, I would probably try them as well. I mostly play TGM after I get off work for a few hours or so.

3. What other games besides Tetris keep you busy?
None right now, i'm kinda bored of other games atm.

4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?
Nope.

5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?
I honestly don't remember.

Welcome to the community, @Zeern

A PCB player from the start? Solid. Are you using a cab or a supergun?

Keep doing exactly that and you will have a GM in no time.

An AV EX+ Control Box, one of these: https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=2551
I switched out the Seimitsu stuff for Sanwa.

5. ### EnchantressOfNumbers

That reminds me a lot of my Pana Custom. I also had to swap out Seimitsu components for Sanwa. Having an all-in-one solution like that is pretty convenient, but I really need to figure out what's causing the interference in the video signal on mine. I hope yours is better in that regard.

6. ### Zeern

No problems with video so far (fingers crossed), but the 3.5mm audio has a loud buzzing. Fortunately I tend to watch/listen to other things while playing.

Yikes, $500 for a box that contains a$40 Gonbes scaler that doesn't handle 240p right...we gotta get you on that good OSSC shit!

Man, you guys are hardcore. I'm happy with my Texmaster and my \$60 joystick...for the moment.

Hmm..... As a new member I should introduce myself here.
A Senior 3 student who is preparing for the College entrance examination, which will be held next year. So I am always busy this time and I will not be active recently.

1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player?

The reason why I want to play tetris is that I want to find something fun. When I was 7 years old I started to play tetris and I started to play Texmaster when I was about 11 years old. Maybe I am not the best player but I can say that I have done well so far.

2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

Mainly play Texmaster by my keyboard. I usually play when I am free. Maybe I play 1.5 hours a day on average.

3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ) keep you busy?

Hmm.... Touhou Project Games? Such as Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Imperishable Night. I recently play them.
I also play Dancing Line on my mobile phone.

4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

Well, I don't know. Maybe I forgot it

5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

In fact, I was introduced by my friends online. Such as AQ6174 and GAP. It is said that there are many foreign players who plays teteri well. Beacuse I am shy, I didn't post a message until this year.

My name is Alice. I'm bad at games.

1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player?

I started playing Tetris because I enjoy high-APM games that require lighting fast decisions from players. Games that push players to go further and break their own boundaries.

I wouldn't consider myself a great player by any means, but I think I have the capacity to be a great player if focus my efforts diligently.

I haven't been playing for very long (I just started playing this summer), but I have a serious drive to improve and keep moving forward.
To motivate myself, I created a challenge that I call the '30 before 30' challenge.

That challenge requires me to:
• Reach Level 30 in NEStris
• Max Out in NEStris
• Achieve GM in TGM, TAP, and Ti
...before the age of 30. Wish me luck, I'm probably going to need it.

2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?
I currently play Arika's Tetris the Grand Master Series alongside Tetris Friends, NEStris, and Nullpomino. My favorite Tetris is debatably TAP. I usually play for a couple of hours a day, off and on in between other games. Tetris has been a really healthy time killer for me when I'm matchmaking in other games.

3. What other games besides Tetris keep you busy?
I'm an avid member of the FGC, so a lot of the other games I play are fighting games. I've played the MvC series, Skullgirls, SF3S, SF2HF, SFIVAE, and SFV just to name a few. I just got into platform fighters, namely Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Other than fighters, I enjoy MMORPGs, MOBAs, Racing Games, etc.
Some of my favorites are TERA, DotA, and F-Zero GX.

4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?
Yep! I enjoy playing Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack) and Dr. Mario.

5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?
Boom Tetris for Jeff
I went to the Let's Play Gaming Expo in Irving Texas this summer and one of the NEStris players told me Tetris Concept was a great resource for promising Tetris players. Happy to be here!

Hello all, I've been lurking here for some time so I suppose I should introduce myself...

I started playing TGM about a year and a half ago when I found out that the game center near my (now former) work had a TI machine. I love puzzle games but otherwise have had limited experience with Tetris, so it was rough going for awhile.

I am interested mainly in TI since it is the game I started on and the one that appeals to me the most, not to mention being the only TGM I had reasonable access to for a very long time. Currently, I am graded S5 in both (Classic) Master and Shirase; I mostly focused on Shirase until I hit the torikan, and now I'm trying to improve my master gameplay. I'm hoping to get confirmed S7 by the end of the year and perhaps shave off the ~15 seconds I need to lose to get past the Shirase torikan. I think I'm a couple of days away from Master S6, but every once in awhile I top out before 600 and ruin my running average...

I just did, it was a small handheld computer that was laying around the house. I don't play that much and I consider myself one of the worst (/slowest) tetris players around.

2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

I live for 1986 DOS Tetris

3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ) keep you busy?

Usually some World of Warcraft.

4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

Fitting stuff into a small car is usually fun too.

5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

Via muf, I figured I'd register an account on Tetrisconcept.net to check out other people's progress and interests

Hi,
I introduce myself with streightforward answering the questions.
1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have played and if you consider yourself a great player?
Why? Because it was fun from the beginning on the NES. So I started to play as a kid but forget about it when I was in Highschool and College, but now I play regularly for 5 years- so I think I'm an ambitious average player.

2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?
Usually Blocks from Hell and NES Tetris

3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ) keep you busy?
The old DOS stuff ... Duke Nukem 3D and Doom etc...

4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?
Hm... Dr. Mario for NES

5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?
I heard about Texmaster and want to try it...
