hm. updating my 40L sprint record on here:
12 finesse errors
2.7 pieces per second
3.2 key presses per piece
the modern tetris community often uses the term "solution" to talk about decision of how to place blocks. not just for stuff like "PC solutions" (referring to groups of pieces that allow you to get a perfect-clear), but also just stuff like "there are a few ways to fix this misdrop, one solution is like XYZ which leads to a t-spin double,"
i think this exemplifies the mindset of a lot of good tetris players, which is that the game is on one hand a series of mini puzzles with different solutions, some more effective than others. then the rest of the game is actual strategy: when to set up or activate t-spins, whether or not to do a t-spin/tetris now or build a more elaborate setup, watching the opponents' behavior to influence these decision. it takes a long time to get to this point tho..
the video game industry is tacitly built on free labor, it is basically impossible to get hired without doing an enormous amount of self study and portfolio building. (i remember a programmer hiring test for one company involving building an entire test game without a pre built engine. unpaid of course!) this of course excludes anyone who isnt privileged enough to train themselves for hundreds of hours without making money
Lewd sex mention
I mean "love wins" is a bit silly even as a gay cis man anyway. My right to consentually bone another guy in the ass has nothing to do with love winning
