“Playback on other websites has been removed by the video owner, lol. But I’ve seen it before haha, besides I don’t think I’m that good at all, or ever really just normal good, I’ve still never won a game of 99, I’m just better then when I started by a noticble amount and I’m surprised by how fast it happened. And while I am looking up starts purposefully now, at first it just happened naturally.
To expand on why I’m liking tetris 99 so much:
With normal Tetris I never felt the need to get better, because I was able to survive, even when it got fast I could keep up, it was just that my score was lame cause I didn’t try to get tetris’ or do t-spins or set anything up correctly. But I was able to keep the blocks low and survive and thus I was happy with my level of skill when I did play.
But I can’t get away with that here, even with my survival level it doesn’t mean anything when opponents are added blocks for me at an insane fast rate. I needed to play well enough to remove the garbage before it comes and to take out opponents to get badges.
I got better then I use to be and way faster then I would of expected. I started to actually take into account what the next blocks are going to be, I started saving important blocks in my bank to use later. And I’ve learnt how to set up tetris’ and long chains of clears. The only other main aspect I haven’t got down yet is T-spinning cause it’s complicated to set up and when I try to do it I usually end up messing it up and being in a very bad situation becuase of it.
Bascially I think Tetris 99 is really fun and having a battle royal game that give me anonymity and to a dagree let’s me do my own thing is a lot more fun then all the shooters out there. This reallt shows that the genre can be more then just shooters and there are many creative ways to do battle royal. I never thought I’d be the person who would look up tetris set ups, combos, and tech. Cause it always seemed so complicated and pointless but now I really am enjoying the learning experience of it aswell.
