Classic Tetris World Championship 2022

The old world is gone.
Jonas has died.
Joseph, Koryan, Greentea, Quaid, Jeff are all gone.
The only thing left is zoomers who over the last couple of years have rendered the NES Tetris scene unrecognisable with their ability. Players scoring dozens of maxouts in qualifying, killing the level 29 "killscreen" some with the rolling technique of button-mashing similar to that seen in Track & Field arcade games.

Should mention this is the first in-person CTWC since 2019 due to the coof

    This isn't how qualifying finished but this is the picture they uploaded. 14 maxouts in like an hour or two, when it was like 6 to lead the table before.

      This year was kind of interesting as a bystander to see what they've managed to do in the last 2 years, but overall the players are much less entertaining than the older era.

      There's no denying they are overall better, although I do think some of the older top DAS players were better mentally, whereas the newer champs make up for that with rolling. Even if this is a bullshit opinion, I still think the older players were more entertaining than most of the players this year. The one exception was the youngest guy "Thatchy" who showboated a bit, that was pretty entertaining.

    i wonder what attracts zoomers to classic tetris rather than tetris

      Any game that is "accessible" as an eSport is attractive to the younger generation. The difficulty threshold of classic Tetris was lowered a bit with "hypertapping" a few years ago. It was significantly lowered with the "rolling" technique. As you can see above any fat loser can now go to the championships utilizing their pudgy, stinky feet.

    The way they are holding these controllers make me think there's something wrong in this competition.

      you don't know about rolling?
      classic tetris scene is crazy nowadays. Nothing like it used to be even a couple of years ago.

    meanwhile jp dudes who won stuff like evo during their teenage years are still wrecking now
    needless to say they aren't exempt from aging so at least younger generations who also won their own share will be around
    there's nonfgc tournaments in jp with organizers and winners in their 60/70s beating 20 and older though

    Fell asleep watching the final at Yurotime

    Caught the VOD today, enjoyed it very much seeing them pushing the limits of the game.

    Jonas would be proud 🙂

      Tetris Effect Connected has a mode that tries to emulate the CTWC feel yes. It's never going to be perfect but it's been warmly received in the community, Greentea who was a player was involved in development.
