    Moving forwards, we will be phasing out photo submissions of gaming records. Please shoot a video of your final screen to avoid any debate re: manipulated images.

      do you want video of the entire play or just the lost screen? because getting over level 200 take multiple hours of play

      If you can't find a way to video the entire game play -- have a look around, some of our marathon gamers have had some really great video presentations -- then a video of at least the final screen will do.

    We went ahead and modify the rules. To remain consistency on this category and to stay true on point/score measurement, only the original version of Tetris is acceptable moving forward

    I believe you can request to make a change you just have to look around the site I forgot where I seen it.

  • England Jake253


    yes i know, i did it in a rush... how can i change the rules?

  • United States Michael James

    But then again if it was line count it may as well be a different record in a way dont cha think? I just think you shouldve been a little more clear on the game rodolpho no offense just ask the moderators or whatever to change the rules im sure they'll let you.

  • England Jake253


    trhe official version should be that one that i used first. that website

    I agree, I mean i know I'm a hypocrite about it but I still agree

    For the sake of fairness the record should instead be judged on line count due to the difference in score values. Either that or an official version should be declared.
