How to sign up: Join the Hard Drop Discord: and type !register in the #hdo-x channel. Discord will be the preferred method of contact for scheduling matches with your opponent. Sign ups will close on January 11th.. You can also sign up by replying to this thread with your Discord username, but it will be required to join the Hard Drop discord.

Seedings will take place during January 4th - 11th. Seedings will be determined on NES Tetris Type-A (emulated OK) and ordered by highest scores. First reported maxout will take top seed, with any after that taking next seed. The final seedings will be calculated on January 11th, you may submit new personal bests up until that day. ROMs that manipulate the DAS or controllers that use turbo buttons for advantage are not allowed.

Submit personal bests on the #hdo-x channel with a screenshot of your username and score as proof. Do not use any custom ROM that affects the gameplay (DAS, timings, etc.)
