TAP Master mode rules :

1 : Reach lv. 999 under 8:45:00
2 : Reach lv. 999 with the S9 rank
3 : Do the first 5 sections (000-500) under 1:05:00 for each one
4 : Do at least 2 tetrises in the 5 first sections (000-500)
5 : Do at least 1 tetrises in the 4 following sections (500-900)
6 : Section 500-600 mustn't be 2sec slower than the average of the 5 first one
7 : For the 4 sections (600-999), section x mustn't be 2sec slower than section x-1
8 : Survive the invisible section at the staff roll during 1min

A good target for level 500 is 4:55
Try to perform the 5 first sections in 59sec for each one.

This is the optimal and maximal time I recommend for the whole Master mode :
Code:
* 0 - 100 ---> 60 sec ---> 1:00
100 - 200 ---> 59 sec ---> 1:59
200 - 300 ---> 60 sec ---> 2:59
300 - 400 ---> 58 sec ---> 3:57
400 - 500 ---> 58 sec ---> 4:55
500 - 600 ---> 55 sec ---> 5:50
600 - 700 ---> 50 sec ---> 6:40
700 - 800 ---> 46 sec ---> 7:26
800 - 900 ---> 42 sec ---> 8:08
900 - 999 ---> 37 sec ---> 8:45

2. ### colour_thief

Sure, I'll help. Updated my personal best. I know I've had a slow S9 before, but I can't recall it so I'll live with my fast S8.

3. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

Yes, I know there is not on the list the best scores of needle, cqwg, shade and other...

4. ### Rosti LFC

I'll give master mode a shot later today.

5. ### K

yeah !

why not just create a specific thread for all ranking ?

it could motivate us to play on each mode then...

and why not going deeper on the concept :

why not creating a clean HTML page or something ?

6. ### colour_thief

Absolutely. A year ago I could name every (well, every one that cared to interact with other players) Gm outside Japan off the top of my head... Now I don't think I can. I'm curious to see how many of us there are.

And I've been thinking about leaderboards too since they seem popular. Maybe a wiki page? I'm not sure... It's good to keep leaderboards visible to motivate people.

7. ### cyberguile

I think the forum should be splitted in a couple of sub-forums (something like "tgm" "tds" "herboris" "other tetris games" "random shit") and put such topics as annoucements (topics that stay at the top of the first page)

8. ### Rosti LFC

"Random Shit" might be a bit too offensive for a board title.

I'm all for having more than one board though. We've grown a fair bit since I joined.

Also:

The time was pretty good up until around 6 minutes. Things went a bit downhill from there.

9. ### cyberguile

Well, "tetris non-related things" then

10. ### colour_thief

If you need any encouragement Rosti, level 750+ is a sweet spot for increasing grade. Also, S4 is extremely close to S3. So if you survived just a little more, you'd be S4.

11. ### Rosti LFC

Is there anywhere I can find the grade points? They are not included in the Wiki.

Also, what do the little badge things to the right hand side of the playing field mean? They obviously have something to do with section times, as they appear when you cross a level boundary like 200 or something.

12. ### cyberguile

You should download the hack that lets you start at wanted level.

I did play a couple of days at 700~ last month and increased my skill pretty quick !

If you do a lot of tetris in this section, your grade will grow pretty fast

13. ### Rosti LFC

Surely I might as well just play Death?

14. ### cyberguile

Death mode and high speed normal mode are different as what I have felt (lock delay and that sort of stuff aren't the same)

15. ### colour_thief

Actually, even though the timings are a little different that's a pretty minor detail that shouldn't impede progress at Rosti's current stage. And playing Death gives him the benefit of possibly setting a new record.

And Rosti, the closest thing to an explanation on the grade points is this thread. I don't think about the technical details when I play. In the end you just have to play fast and get tetrises.

16. ### DIGITALUnregistered

Here's my first real attempt to reach 999. Master isn't as hard as I thought it would be. The only thing that bothers me is the annoying up down motion of sub-20g. That caused me to lag behind in time until it finally reached 500. Other than that, Master felt a little easier compared to Death.

17. ### sihumchaiUnregistered

Yeah, Up Down is quite bad if you don't have a joystick. Stresses the thumb too much for my poor wrists. I usually switch to TGM1 mode by holding down all the way. (x360 gamepad player)

Question is(maybe stupid):

Holding down > Up Down ?

18. ### DIGITALUnregistered

Holding down is much easier but it's also much slower. You waste many frames for each tetromino placement.

19. ### AmnesiaPiece of Cake

AC : all clear : all stack clear

RO : rotation : ??????? (please explain to me!!!!!!!)

CO : combo : minimum 3 - 2 - 2 - 2 or 4 - 3 - 3 - 2

RE : recover : destroy fastly the stack after having been in anguish..

SK : skill : depend of the number of tetris

ST : section time : indicate you when you break your best section time

Only for the style, those medails don't bring anything for the grad..
