View Full Version : How about an XBA Tetris Tourny?

We've been throwing around the idea of doing an XBA tetris tournament with prizes involved for the winners. The details haven't been worked out yet but it will be set up as a ladder system and various gameplay modes will be involved.

Right now we are just trying to see if we have the member support necessary to make a contest of this variety even worth it.

ALL WE ARE LOOKING FOR IS IF YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN A TETRIS TOURNEY We are not looking for suggestions on how to run it, what the prizes should be, or what other types of online tourneys we should try. Tetris is what we are doing, and we are not looking for suggestions on how it is set up.

If you are interested in this idea, just reply here with something saying "I'm interested" or a message to that effect. Here are the interested people so far:

Rogue

Bunny Rabbit

id like to do it kraft...a RTCW tourny would be cool..maybe the GA could host it...and for prizes..maybe a VIP treatment for a day, or a week...

go in the chatroom and kick me so much i throttle....

or just win a action replay since it seems everyone is giving those away...


those are my idea...i might come up with more ideas

No way Arashi, you are my Favorite XBL Female (MEC being my favorite Male XBL Player).

It'll be between u and MEC for the Win. If we don't play square, Brevity Doesn't stand a chance :cheers:

Alright, so as far as the rules, here is what I am thinking. We are not going to stick to a one type of tetris deal. It will be a ladder system incorperating all 6 types, so noone gets shafted completely or has a total unfair advantage. Point system is still being worked out... but if we want this to happen we definately need more people. Spread the word!

What do you know,,,,, you cant hold a candle to me in NE game type. And I have now been playing the other game types ALOT more; the one time I ever really gave it a go with you MEC and them at Cascade me and MEC went to lvl 15 or there abouts. I played last night at that lame game type and guess what WON EVERY GAME. I just needed more play time at the others then I can own them too. MEC is 28th at Cascade, I can beat that with time alone. MEC we really must play more at both our game types. BTW in case you have not seen I am #1 in square now ppl. Get ready for a fight if this goes down. MORE XBA'ers need to get this game.

Is this going to be on the Xbox? Or on PC? I didn't know there was a Tetris out for the Xbox....... Probably isn't, and I'm a dumbass. Anyways, I'm in.

blocks eh? i suck at that game, so im not interested. i would prefer to play a tourny in a shooting game like GR or RTCW. randomly pick the XBA members to make teams. play agianst other XBA members. say 4 vs 4 or 6 vs 6.whoever wins gets something. and should be hold every week or so until contest is over. yea, that sounds like a better one to me.


just a suggestion.
