How many wins do you think it will take to hit top 1000? Another streamer said 5, while I think it will be somewhere around 15

I'd wager you're guess is closer than the other streamer's.

Before I sleep and get ready for the event, I am pretty sure I've never had more clutch a moment in puzzle gaming as what you see here

Don't think I'll be doing much in this event unfortunately. Started off with some ugly games and eventually got hot, but couldn't finish the job in any of my best performances. Some top 10, top 5 and top 2 finishes, but no wins. Seems like y'all are doing better and hope you keep it up.

I got a little hot late tonight. Yesterday I was trash.

Anyone else tried playing with the sound off? I've found it helps me keep calm and steady towards the end of matches.

I very rarely play with the sound on. As fun as the Tetris theme remix can be, it's just too stressful to deal with in the background. I've been using Tetris 99 as my podcast-listening time a lot recently

21 event wins, which is almost certainly safe but I'm playing more today anyway because the game is fun

Also, watching other people made me find a beautiful new early game strat:

A little worried I stopped a win short of what I needed.

Nope. I think I missed out by a single win, from what I'm seeing others report. Kinda wish I'd have pushed for one more that night, but I was getting a bit burned out by that point.
