Hi everyone! I'm so glad I found this forum and its awesome wiki! About a month ago a friend of mine bought tetris ds and was like this is so much fun. At first I didn't really understand why, but then he lent me some ds games and tetris ds was one of them. Before I knew I was totally absorbed into the game and it didn't take long before I got my own copy. For weeks only improving my tetris ds points was on my mind and as I got better I was interested to know where I stood and quite honestly I was shocked to see I was nowhere (cyberscore.net and this site made me realize that). Reading some basic entries in your wiki helped me improve my tetris points from about 16000 to my current score of 21449 and I'm still trying to figure out how I can get better. I haven't really played wifi yet because I'm still waiting for the WFC I've ordered to play the game online. Also shocking was the fact that infinity seems to have "broken" the game. So I decided to play the games that made tetris great. Recently I found out about t-spins which I haven't tried to master yet and which seems very difficult. But they seem to be a key part in the recent tetris versions. I've been playing different versions to improve my game. Most of the tetris versions I've played are from Nintendo on handheld: Tetris Tetris DX Magical Tetris Challenge Tetris Advance (Can someone share his/her 2 minute score attack score for reference, because I can't to seem to find anything about it on the net) I've also played the homebrew ds version of Lock Jaw which is phantastic. The level of customization is awesome. My current 180 seconds score is 26400 and my current 40 lines score is 1:28:38. My tpm is between 55 and 70 most of the time. I'm at my best when I'm in some sort of trance where I feel almost one with the game... I'll try to upload the pictures I've taken of my personal records later. I read that I needed to copy a txt file but I didn't know how to do it on the ds version so I took pictures. Currently I'm working on my speed and stacking and have more than enough trouble getting better. My strategy at the moment is to stack on the left side and use an opening on the far right for tetrises. I came here to ask you on how a noob like myself could improve his game. My questions: 1. Which stacking method(s) should I try to master? Should I keep using SRS or is mastering ARS or something else essential? 2. How do I get used to t-spins. Any stacking method(s) I should try to master? 3. Which tetris versions are the best to play and what options to use? 4. Do you play with keyboard or gamepad on pc or are there any other ways like an arcade stick? I found it very hard to play Lock Jaw on pc with my keyboard. Maybe it's because I'm used to playing on handhelds. 5. Any other valuable tips you can give? Maybe there is a thread somewhere with all the information I need? 6. Also how do I post pictures of my highscores? Do I need to send them to someone? I'm looking forward to improve my game! Thanks in advance for your guidance!
