Hahaha
I didn't understand all the bragging on facebook at first lol

2. ### Ai

To be clear I wasn't the one bragging on Facebook. And here's a screenshot to prove that my current personal best isn't a total fluke.

I'm confident in my abilities at the moment. I played 40 minutes earlier today and got around 450000 a few times.

3. ### COL

C'mon you've been owning texmast*r novice for months... Do you really think there's still people doubting about your normal mode abilities?

Je le déteste

It's been a little over a year now since I got over 500000 in Texmaster Novice. But I've always struggled to get results on the same level in TAP Normal. I'v gotten better though.

Actually my previous post was to show that I'm getting scores over 450000 more frequently now. It's a of confirmation of the 480303 I got earlier this week.

6. ### Budster

Eh, I'm still around the 300k range. Having issues getting combos consistently.

7. ### rednefed

What started as a cooldown game after making m in Death turned into a PR.
300 @ 3:17:78, 464669
Again, about 3 seconds wasted dropping pieces waiting for an I. It was already out of the history by 299...

8. ### Ai

Very small improvement.

What's your average clear time? Stack high and take risks. If you try hard enough you'll get lucky every once in a while. Around 350000 shouldn't be too hard if you can finish the game in under 4 minutes.

Very lucky: started with a tetris, column 9 left two blocks high... some chaff doubles with S and T and J, then whoa, another I comes for the second tetris of the combo.

300 @ 3:25:05
Score: 475363.
Amnesia is a lucky piece of cake?

10. ### Ai

Very nice rednefed. A score of 356328 without the bonus is very close to what I did a while ago. With a score like that and a clear time like in Amnesia's current top game we would both have gotten over 500000. We're getting closer.

11. ### Muf

Selected this mode by accident.

Straight tetrising, no combos.

13. ### Ai

Look at rednefed and my time Amnesia. That must really hurt. Here's your problem:

Code:
1    Ai              357942
2    rednefed        356328
3    colour_thief    345804
4    gila            331746
5    Amnesia         325152
Fix this and it will be easier to break 500000.

Go for 400000 muf! You don't need big combos.

14. ### rednefed

~354000 before bonus. I finished with a triple and couldn't catch the score flash by before the time bonus kicked in. Rough calculation says around 380000.

514306, 300 @ 3:16:70

Milestones: 91000 at level 100, ~200000 at level 200.

15. ### Muf

Holy shit rednefed you beat 500K! That's like Gm but for Normal mode . Many combogulations, Elizagerth!

16. ### colour_thief

Very nice! I don't suppose you recorded it?

17. ### rednefed

Sadly, no. If someone can teach me how to do the inp's and recording, I'll be glad to start doing so.

18. ### cyberguile

did you get a combo with two tetrises ?
I didn't think 500k was obtainable without an AC medal

19. ### Ai

A massive achievement rednefed and it's not that it was close either. Many congratulations from someone who spent a lot of time on this mode and sometimes nearly feeling like going crazy. I was secretely hoping I would be the first over the 500000 mark, but I haven't been playing much recently.

This is not to be underestimated as it takes a huge amount of skill, perseverance and luck. This performance is especially great since he broke 500k without having to rely on a bravo. Let's hope some other players and me can join you over the 500000 mark very soon.

I will send you a pm later today or during the weekend to help you out with this.

I've talked to a few Japanese players and they have told me there are plenty of examples where players didn't need to get ACs. In most cases the time was well under 4:20.

We have a new combo king!

personnaly, I always finish normal mode under 3min05, maybe I should try to speed less and think more
