  8. TGM1 - ❌12:05 down to sub 11 (I have the speed just need the execution)
    TGM1 - ❌Rev GM, ✅20G GM, ❌Mono GM
    ❌Death 500 (PB is 350)
    ❌Clear doubles with my girlfriend

    This year i got a few 20G GMs, big mode lv300, learned some guideline openers and tspin setups, and had a ton of fun playing tetris alone and with friends and family.

    I met some of the tgm crew in Seattle and CTWC. Thank you Kevin and Zach!

    I wrote about Tetris on my website, and got some positive feedback :)

    I contributed to and the tgm page on wikipedia.

    I played way more versions of Tetris that are likely untouched today.

    My tetris collection keeps growing thanks to my christmas presents this year and help from Kitaru, thank you!

    My goals for 2019 are:
    Sega 500k
    A GM in another mode, like rev or mono
    Learn TAP Master
    More Tetris Plus speed run attempts

  14. 2018 goals:

    ✓ 800 in death (GM)
    ✓ 30 seconds into the M roll (TAP) (~35sec)
    ✗ Left hand one handed GM in TGM (did the right 2017) (I was lazy and didn't try)
    ✓ See how far I can get through doubles on two different inputs (stick and keyboard) for different hands, no idea what to expect (~250, ~250)
    ✗ See what levels can be the finishing number for a secret grade. The smallest is 53 (done in 2017), and without thinking about it much, I suspect the answer is every larger number for specific sequences of tetrominoes (lazy and barely thought about it)
    ✗ And why not an M in TI master, I can fail that again (tried a little, kept failing the 600 cool)


    I've thought for this for almost a month now. This may be the first year I post goals I don't actually achieve.

    1. TAP master GM
    2. Death 4000+ series.

  15. Still have to play more, managed to get to 400 in death once, and close to clearing TAP, but it wasn't good enough.

  18. Currently in holiday overseas but when I return I will begin my TGM3 grind for the year. I have lots of smaller goals, but only one major one for now: play an S9 Master game.

    Currently I am qualified at S4, but I've begun averaging S5 and recently broke through the barrier to S6. I feel the hurdle into Levels 1100/1200 is almost overcome :)

    Ambitious maybe, but isn't that what TI is all about?
  19. if you're trying to learn shirase 300/master 1200 the best way to get used to it is just to really push yourself and aggressively manlock it until it clicks and you get used to it, even if it just ends up immediately killing all your runs for a while (yes i'm being serious lol, it's how i learned death 300+, shirase 300/master 1200, shirase 500+, etc)
