INVISIBLE TETRIS! (no, not a Ti GM video)

There appears to be a bug in line clearing on some Tetris game on Facebook.

7. ### jujubeUnregistered

oh yes, that game was awesome, wasn't it? now i see what everyone was complaining about when tetrisonline made Tetris Friends. can anyone confirm if the bug was replicated in the TF blockstar mode?

It's gone.

I won't tell it enough but..

fucking SRS !!!

It is possible that someone teach me how to do a back to back tspin double ??

10. ### tepplesLockjaw developer

In Tetris DS, a Tetris followed by a T-spin, with no line clears between them, is considered back-to-back. Is this true of Tetris Friends as well? If so, try building something like this:

Code:
|     |
|%%%%%%JJ |
|%%%%%%J |
|%%%%%%J% %|
|%%%%%%%% %|
|%%%%%%%% %|
|%%%%%%%% %|
|%%%%%%%% %|
----------'`
Or try building an imperial cross:

With the first T, do the spin-triple twist and then rotate the T by another 180 degrees. As long as the last rotation doesn't kick, it's still a T-spin. The T will clear a hurdle double (rows 1 and 3), leaving a place for a well-known twist.

there used to be only 1 solo mode leaderboard that had both the 3 minute and 2 minute scores, so everybody would only play the 3 minute mode because you can score higher on the leaderboard. Now they split it, so there is a leaderboard for 2 minute mode, and a leaderboard for 3 minute mode.

they are beta testing the flash version of tetris friends soon, go to the facebook application page and sign up to be a beta tester if you are interested.

I registered to the site yesterday. Are the people at the top of the leaderboard members from TC?

I haven't played all that much yet, but here are my personal records so far:

Tetris Marathon: 488.876

Tetris Solo 2 min: 15.366

Tetris Solo 3 min: 19.180

blink nice T-Spin play! Still haven't learned to play using T-Spin.

16. ### Yokay

I'm at 40082 for 3 minute and 26646 for 2 minute. No t-spins though I still can't really get the hang of it.

I have to say though, I watched blink's video and that was incredible. The speed at which he builds into t-spins really amazed me.

My question though is when you play tetris without t-spins do you build your hole to either side?

It's most advantageous to build the hole on the right. 5 of the 7 tetrominoes spawn in a position that is biased to the left side of the field. Since you'll be stacking much more than tetrising with the I tetromino, you would save many more tapping inputs.

personally i stack w/ my hole in the middle because I came from tetrinet2, where if the block has no room to spawn, you die. The blocks on tetrinet2 spawn in the field, rather than above it out of view, so leaving the hole in the middle allowed me to survive better in tetrinet2. I'm still playing this way because I"m too used to it. Digital is right about having a hole on the right side could equal faster speeds because of less distance to travel. That being said, it would be best if you are used to playing well no matter where the hole is YokaY.

the private beta version is up on facebook now until june 30th, if anybody wants to test and leave them feedback.

some noticeable changes -

flash based, no more java

faster DAS, not customizable

leaderboard shows players stats, and can view their profile

a "watch game" button on the leaderboard, possible replay feature coming

better looking graphics

that's all i noticed so far.

Java games VS Flash games. Which runs smoother and requires less? I'd hate it if the Flash version would run even laggier than the Java version... Now and then the game (Java version) "stutters" and I missdrop or make some other mistake. Really annoying.
