Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! are their deuces? like if the game was first to 10, and the score is 9:9, do you have to win by 2?

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! two of my friends would like to participate, i told them to come sign up but it looks like they have yet to do it

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! GROUP STAGE: - First to 15 - There are NO deuces. So if it's 14-14, you do NOT have to win by 2. - Players are ranked by the amount of wins. *Special cases: *1) If the amount of wins between 2 players is the same, then the winner between their match is ranked higher. *2) If the amount of wins between 3 players is the same, then they are ranked by the ''win-lose-difference''. *3) If the amount of wins between 4 players is the same, then they are ranked by the ''win-lose-difference''. *4) If it's still impossible to rank the players after rule *1, *2 and *3, the players must play a re-match. QUARTER FINALS (8 Players left, Competing for the positions #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7 and #: - Best of 3 sets (=first to 2 sets), each set first to 10. - Set #1 + Set #2 do NOT contain deuces.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! GREAT! Since it's impossible to register now, I save #14 and #15 for them. OK, so then I have 15 players now. I must say that even though I save these places for them now, I won't hesitate to give a place away for a player who had given signs of being interested at an earlier phase. I must admit that I am hoping for G-Fish or Chaos, but since they're not responding I don't count on them anymore. If 1 more player will sign-up before the deadline, I will close the registration for this Tournament because then I'll have 16 players. In other words: The first player who signs up now, will be the last player to be signed up in this Tourney! [But since it's impossible to register, you must hope you'll be the first to find out that it is working again... GOOD LUCK! ] EDIT: Sorry for the double post. I didn't do it on purpose.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! I'm in! TDS Screen name: Hayate FC: 976823 126205 Contact me using AIM or either MSN (add me @furbe8@hotmail.com), screen name for AIM is Hayate510. I prefer to use MSN though, so i won't be on AIM most of the time. Will also be on #tetrisconcept when the tournament starts. Playing some games might be difficult for me as i'm from Singapore, but i will try my best to play all of them.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! THAT IS #16...and therefore I can say: SIGN UP IS CLOSED* *I count on ''(a) friend(s) of Shibbypod''. I haven't got a guarantee that they will be playing...so like I had said before: I won't hesitate to give the saved places away to players who had said at an earlier phase that they would be interested. Those who were interested, but a little bit too late to sign up: You can still post your information here: I will consider you as ''standby''. If someone cancels before 21 June, the ''standby'' will play instead of the player who had cancelled.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! - Your tds Name Chaos - Your Friend Code 081111 309605 - The ways you can be contacted: think about pm, email, IRC or so. I am contactable via PM, AIM (sn: EdgeMasterChaos), and email: edgemasterchaos@hawaiiantel.net Sorry so late guys, had a lot of stuff on my mind as of late. I hope I can still make it in for this.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! You're in! No doubt about it! I had saved 2 places: you get 1 of them. But make sure you visit this site a bit more...well at least make sure that you're REALLY contactable...you frightened me these days by being so silent. EDIT: Via IRC Kevin Birell told me he will play. He will post his data soon. The second saved place will be given to Kevin. That means that this Tourney is REALLY full now. People can only sign up as ''standby'' now.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! All players are announced now. I will [try to] publish the full schedule with rules within a few hours. [Including loser bracket]. EDIT: Due to some ''situations'' that I will not explain, I've decided to NOT publish the schedule ''within a few hours''. I'll publish it at the date that I promised earlier: Before 14 June.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! I think you said something before about playing at a handicap of 2. Is that still the case, and if so, how exactly does it differ from normal play?

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! What is ''normal''? You know that, when you play against somebody with friendcodes, you have to choose a ''handicap'' [1,2,3,4 or 5]before the match starts? Well, the highest handicap gives the most scrappiest garbage and let the blocks fall faster than a lower handicap. I've chosen that everybody must choose 2, because the garbage at handicap 1 is too tidy, garbage at handicap 3 is too scrappy. [And if you play tds often, then you know that handicap 2 is some sort of well accepted standard]. ps: I want to stress again: Please make sure that you can be contacted in a direct way to arrange a match or during a match. The easiest way is with IRC. - irc.quakenet.org - #tetrisconcept If you don't have irc, then use this webchat: http://webchat.quakenet.org and enter #tetrisconcept

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! Hey, I'm pumped about playing and trying to take at least one game from Rosti! Anyone wanna play before the tourney starts? I'll need to practice cause i've been playing TSplash only pretty much cause my cpu is really dropping the ball on me... Also today I achieved my first sub 1 minute time in 40 lines tetris ever! on Tetris Splash. 59.56! woo!

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! go on irc chat and you can find ppl to play. when does this tornament officially start? june 15?

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! It's quite useless to try to find people to play by posting on this forum. Why don't you come online at irc where you can ask people in a direct way! Yes, it starts officially on 15 June. New information: Deadline for the matches of group stage: 29 June So competitors have 2 weeks to finish their matches. But ofcourse: the sooner, the better.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! I'd play but I'm going to be out of town for two weeks. Sorry.

Re: ''Kevcel's Tetris DS Tourney'' Officially started! No problem. I managed to find enough [/too many] players anyways.
