No, but the fact that someone can beat him means he's not unbeatable.

2. ### colour_thief

His point was that Blink's not invincible. And mine was that caffeine and jono have clocked in waaaaay more hours with fast DAS, so don't write them off. It's ok having favourites and whatnot, but player worship kind of creeps me out.

3. ### Muf

Considering this game has 8 frame DAS (Shirase section 1) for multiplayer games, DAS finesse can be crucial in deciding who wins. It could be a tight call between the strong players like caffeine, jono, Digital and Blink. Also, don't forget that T-spins have no bonus, so a lot of the guideline versus strategy doesn't apply.

4. ### DIGITALUnregistered

That's it. I'm taking a crusade out on you in the name of blink...

Digi thanks for defending me haha, trust me I respect your gameplay just as much.

But the truth is everybody is beatable including me, and as much as I'd like to fulfill Digital's 30-0 Finals, I must say that I know will lose a good amount of rounds before this tournament is over. That being said, I don't like the samaf example of me losing because we weren't on fair terms when he won, he had everything unlocked while I only had DAS 3 , line clear delay 3, soft drop 3 and piece preview 3. The extra DAS and soft drop really do make a big impact in overall speed. Once I unlocked everything I have beat him 4 straight times and he has yet to beat me. A better example would be Digitals victory over me on Tetris DS, as nobody had an unfair advantage.

As for the tournament, anything can happen so I definitely have nothing in the bag. Caffeine, Jono and Digital are very strong and I'm sure their fast DAS finesse skills will cause me tons of trouble. Any one of them might eliminate me from the tourney, and others that I haven't mentioned and never played before.

P.S. Shoryu drop by #arika so we can play our match.

I do want to note that at this point there is a DAS logic bug in Blockbox. When you DAS to the wall and shift one back, it will often shift two or three back, sometimes in the span of one frame. I've discussed this with Deniax and it appears to be fixed for 40 lines, but not for Versus. I decided to keep playing matt because either way it wouldn't make a tangible difference in the outcome of this round (he crushed me plain and simple), but I do want to point this out to Amnesia.

7. ### Rosti LFC

How often do you notice that muf? I've honestly never felt anything out of the ordinary while playing, and DAS'ing to the wall and then shifting back a space is something I do many times each game.

8. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

Thank you for reporting that..
I am always a bit embarrased when somebody report a bug..The most important is that you already made deniax aware of that..

9. ### Muf

The problem is somehow less severe with 8way input turned on.

10. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

I don't understand this sentence.

11. ### tepplesLockjaw developer

"P.S." is postscript
"drop by" is visit
"#arika" is a channel on some IRC network
"Shoryu" appears to be someone's screen name

Does that clear anything up?

12. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

thx tepples, I am not that stupid..
It was only the word "drop" which made me confused..I had understand by "drop" that shoryu wanted to give up and that he had anounced it on ARIKA..

13. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

Balrog, caffeine, I should be available and...~ready , next sunday and monday.
I should have friday (night) and saturday to practice in my family home (with internet and my joystick !!!)

14. ### colour_thief

Have you bought a real joystick yet? You've got a job now, there's no excuse! Do it before they are sold out.

15. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

First, my paid for this month, and a little part of the next one, are totaly absorbed by the cost of my installation..Payment for the agence, caution payment, first month rent..
Then my Lille-Bordeaux trip for the next weekend costed me $240.. I also bought Zelda TP on GC for$ 75..
I am really sorry but that won't be possible for these days..

but don't worry, my current stick still works very well for the contest..

16. ### DeniaxBlockbox developer

Deniax - DeHackEd: 5 - 15
DeHackEd's first time with non-TGM settings and after a slow start, the beast was set free and he won

GG!

17. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

ho ho..Honestly I was hesitating between you two..

Now I can have a complete model of the next round..

18. ### Muf

He could go the unique route and get a custom stick, or a modded stick with a custom faceplate. I think it would fit Amnesia better than just any run of the mill stick

19. ### colour_thief

That works too. My point is rather that he should upgrade from his current stick ASAP because it constantly breaks and can't withstand the punishment of ordinary play.
