    Tetris Arena Tournament!



    [​IMG]

    Oh, yes. The time has arrived. I told you all there would be a tournament coming. You all guessed, and you were all wrong. We are going to have an honest to goodness Tetris battle royale. The road will be littered with the withered corpses and mangled fingers of the fallen, and in the end, only one shall stand king. That's not to say that there won't be prizes for second and third. Because there will be. This time around we have A total of $100 in gift certificates for thinkgeek.com First place will get $50. Second and third places will each get $25.
    Now let's get to the brass tacks. This tournament will not take place on the Nintendo DS or Wii. The reason being, there is more of a possibility of cheaters on these platforms. That, and it's easier to organize this way. No, we are going to use a flash based website. More specifically, THIS one. The site that we are going to use is capable of creating private rooms/lobbies containing up to 6 players, making this site perfect for tournament play. So if you haven't already, go there and create an account. Feel free to brush up on your T-spin skills before the tournament starts.

    Right now, all you need to do is post your In-game screen name AND your Time Zone in GMT +/-00:00 format. (Eg: My time zone is PST, so my GMT code is -07:00) If you don't know it, you can find it by clicking on your country in this list: HERE. If you do not include this information, you will not be included in the tournament.

    Registration will end April 4th. After I have tallied everyone up, I will announce the rules of the tournament, and announce the date and times of the tournament. There are a few things I can tell you now, however. The rounds will be played on a Saturday or Sunday (PST). USB controllers ARE allowed, but not officially supported by the site, so you would need to utilize a program like Joy2key to make it work. You ARE allowed to practice to your heart's content, and you ARE allowed to create rooms and groups to practice. You are NOT, however, permitted to use this thread to arrange those practice groups. In the official tournament games, Maps and Items will be turned OFF, so if and when you practice, I would suggest turning maps and items off while you do so. Once everyone has registered, I will separate everyone into two lists, based on time zones. From those lists, your groups of 6 will be chosen by random.org. No one will be allowed to switch between groups unless express permission is given, and unless a valid reason is expressed.

    This thread is to ONLY be used for registration. If you have a questions, feel free to PM me about it. If it's an important question that I feel a lot of people might ask, I'll post it here in the OP for everyone's benefit.

    Have fun!

    I kinda suck at Tetris (I have no clue how to do a T-Spin for example, I hardly know what it is), but whatever.

    Seriously? This was pretty much how my entire senior Advanced Math class time was spent. Unsurprisingly I only got a C in that class but until they did a stat reset a couple years ago I was hella high up there in 6P mode.
