    "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. And... to set a new record in Death Mode."

    Welcome to this year's Carnival of Death, tetrisconcept's annual celebration of that most brutal of modes. For one week a year, starting on the date of the torikan -- 3/25 -- it is our tradition to play nothing but Death Mode; to show no mercy; to manual lock until our fingers bleed. Please join us, and let us see if some records can be broken!

    If I understand corrctely, death carnival has started since november for me (the so-called "balanced training": what for? :p")...
    OK i'm starting tomorrow; I have some free time to fill XD
  3. I think i'll skip this year.:|
    Just starting TGM, DEATH mode is too much for me...;)
    Let's see if i can GM on TGM then i'll try it, maybe next year!^^
  4. You should go for it anyway, i did during my first year of tgm and got to 250 ^^ this year i'm aiming for 400 yeah!
  5. Yeah, I say go for it. Last year my first games of Death were the Carnival games haha
    can't believe my goal was 400... I underestimated the mode, this year I'm shooting for 500
  6. We who are about to die, salute you!

    I'm thinking about skipping the "manual lock till our fingers bleed" part this year though. Aiming for smarter stacking instead of "with the force of a thousand kenyans" style.

    ...we'll see what I actually end up doing though 9_9

    My goal for the Carnival will be a lofty breaking the 500 torikan, but only if I'll only play if I complete my current goal of TGM GM.

    Edit: Hmm... probably should have posted this in the welcome topic. :( Sorry.

    My goal is to beat this fucking game. I'll hook up the PCB in 39 minutes.

    Ave Tetrisconcept, morituri te salutant.

    I'll be inaugurating my PCB this week with exclusive DEATH MODE.
  11. I don't have any motivation. I haven't played a single game (not just TGM/TAP but clones or Tetris in general included) since the LAST carnival. :(
  12. Surely cravings and Tetris withdrawal must be motivation by themselves?
  13. I guess I just don't believe I can improve over last year, with a full year of no training behind me. :\

    But, I just installed MAME and tried for a bit. Didn't take logs, but played about 30 credits. Only 1/30 went to 2XX. Rest felt like 80% 0XX and 20% 1XX. I'll play more tomorrow, but still not feeling it. Maybe it'll come back to me and I will feel more motivated. But I also have a busy week ahead of me which is not really helping with the motivation either but oh well, I will try to fit one session in a day.

    You and me have been similar skillwise, and you'll be pleased to know I haven't improved much since last year either. I haven't played much at all, but I do still enjoy it, and still progress. My focus has shifted from speed to doing complicated moves.

    Won't have much time for this year, but I'll give it an hour or two and post the best of my tries.
