Thank you Raul1138 !
Just a little bit of practice and you'll become a maxouter!
@Emmanuel Solera: how do you experience using Hyperkin? Is his D-Pad precise, or does pressing the down arrow work diagonally (down and side)?
Some time ago I was thinking about buying it, but on YouTube I found videos from unboxing and on them the owners showed that it has an imprecise D-Pad. It was almost impossible to squat in Ninja Gaiden, which is normally possible by pressing down arrow.
That's why I finally bought Data Frog, because I didn't have such problems with it, and besides it was much cheaper, so I could buy more controllers for the price of one Hyperkin.
Hey furious programming ! The D-Pad seems to me quite precise but it is hard to press it ; it is a little exhausting for the hand. Maybe I should try others controllers to compare and improve my game. Or I should get a real console and a CRT TV...
New final score PB, earliest max PB, and transition score PB, plus my first ever back to back!
Wow. Great to see all these long time tetrisconcepters hitting maxouts and high pbs. Congrats Eris, FP, Raul and Josh!
@Adonis Mouse Hey, thank you! Its been a long time coming!
@Adonis Mouse: I have nowhere to go, so I'm sitting here. At least for now.
After a 4 months break I got back into it a week ago. Eventually got a few 150k+ lv19 starts and now a new PB + line-record (going to 193 while continuing to score). I did play pretty safe after transition and eventually messed up my board with a short z-burst and an unnecessary misdrop.
In the end it's only a 16000 improvement, but hey. You take what you can get. And sorry for the pause inbetween. I changed my playlist. If it invalidates the score, np.
Transition Score: 602329
Final Score: 740047
Also generally getting a lot better to adjust my risk-taking as well as dealing with the transition pace-change. At this point I can do relative consistent 500k+ transitions.
max out at 184 lines ish. Maybe 184.58?
This leaderboard is only for earliest maxouts right? I maxed on 26 the other day, but I'm not sure how to calculate the exact fraction of a line clear
And 2 days after another small improvement in my PB. I think this was even maxout pace until I messed up and if I was better on 19
Overall am pretty happy with this game - minus the topping out. Had some nasty spots and/or blockdrops that I got through quite cleanly. On 18 and on 19. Especially the post-transition clean-up and the dirty tetris on 19 was pretty neat.
Transition Score: 599777
Final Score: 754940
Edit: During warming up some on 19 today - so I didn't record, yet - I managed to get 361.671 on a lv19 start with ~120 lines. Thats 105.000 more than my previous lv19 personal best.
Guys I got the Hong Kong's first lv 19 maxout last week PogChamp
I guess I'm holding a WR now am I haha
Here's an excel calculator I made to do that:
Classic Tetris Maxout Calculator
So I make yours 26+7.499.
Yep. And woulda been WR without the burns before the maxout tetris.
Score: 1'021'380 Points (Level 18-29)
Style: DAS + Original Hardware (CRT + Controller)
Amazing reaction Eris! And 237 lines?!?
Does anybody know if Stacy Schierholz has a max?
@wasmachstdugern @Josh Tolles @Kitaru @BenMullen
Stacy told me in purrson at CTWC 2019 that she maxed out several times at home, but doesn't record any of her runs. Also, Rory, thanks for your comment.
This is my new NTSC PB.
Score: 995240 (Lvl. 18-29)
Played on Emulator (Nestopia)
Small improvement in PB from level 9 start, slowly getting the hang of level 19 a little bit
