How can I get better at tetris? I've gotten to rank 14 on tetrisfriends (if that even means anything) but after that I struggle to stay in first place or win. I enjoy going against other players because it gives me something to be better than. I don't know how to spin although I know what it is. My control settings don't include rotating pieces both ways and I'd like to know how I could get used to doing this often. I don't understand a lot of terms people on this forum use such as "TAP", "GM", "DAS", "Heboris", "ACE" and "ARS to name a few. I tried looking on your wiki but the explainations for some of them were too difficult for me to understand. Are learning this definitions essential to becoming a better tetris player?
