I like to collect Tetris World Records and have put a bunch of them together on a YouTube channel. Hopefully this is okay with people. I'm truly just doing it as a fan. One thing I'm wondering is who actually has the NTSC World Record? It was Koryan, but that has now been beaten at least once by other people. First there's the legendary Harry Hong, who got 1.275m not too long ago: And then there's 1975TylerP, who posted 1.298m about four months back: It seems like there are quite a few people who don't accept this record, though. For some, he's too mysterious, came out of nowhere, and doesn't show his face or hands. For others, there's something about the gameplay that doesn't ring true. Here are some pluses to support TylerP's claim: he can definitely play; he's probably second only to Joseph for playing at Level 29 speed; he can pull off some crazy good moves; he says he's been playing for decades; he's endorsed by Joseph and several other top players; having seen many hours of his play on Twitch, I don't think there's any reason why he wouldn't be able to hit a score like this. Here are some cons: it's very possible to fake a big score; he's never shown himself on camera; he hasn't joined in CTM, despite saying he would; he played a friendly match against Matt Buco, and he twice kept going way beyond when Buco had topped out, supporting the 'pre-recorded' hypothesis; there's something fishy about his PB story, having said it was around 700,000 at this time, but also saying he's hit 1.3 in the past, and scored many maxouts over the years; many people suspect he's fake, or that he may be an amazing player, but that this world record video in particular is fake; he's removed all his previous streams from Twitch; he doesn't seem particularly interested or able to verify his ability. That said, I was watching on Twitch once where people in the chat were saying to do a Level 14 start - to disprove the 'pre-recorded' hypothesis - and he did, and played incredibly well, and very nearly got a maxout. And I wouldn't be surprised to see him turn up at CTWC, out of the blue, and cause some serious mayhem, just for the hell of it. So what do people here think?
