CTM December 2022

Wow, it's time to qualify for Classic Tetris Monthly. Where does the time go?


For December, we are adding the following for quals and matches:

How does this all work?

Everyone who submits a qualifier will get to a play in a tournament.

  1. Start streaming to your Twitch channel.
  2. Play a game of Tetris (it doesn't count) and get a score over 10,000 points. Goodbye, Lance.
  3. Enter your auth word into the game's leaderboard.
  4. Start your timer.
  5. Play Tetris for an hour. Do your best. Don't sandbag or smurf or whatever it's called.
  6. Enter your top score(s), the URL of your Twitch VOD, and express your disappointment in the comments. Then hit Submit. (Submit even if it's a trash qual.)

Full Guidelines and Rules

The top 16 qualifiers play in the very prestigious Masters Event. The next 16 play in something called the Challengers Circuit, and the winner of that thing also gets to play in the Masters Event in the following month. The next 16 qualifiers play in the Futures Circuit who likewise gets to play in next months Challengers Circuit. After that, 16 players compete in Hopefuls Circuit! These four tournaments are superstreamed bracket by bracket based on color on the MonthlyTetris Twitch account.

This is followed by multiple tiers of Community Tournaments. Matches from these tournaments are scheduled privately among players and restreamed on Twitch throughout the month by volunteers.

Semifinalists in November clinched placement in the same tournament or higher for November. However, you must submit a qualifier in order to play.

But, don't get bogged down by all that. All you have to know is: submit a qualifier to play Tetris against people, then figure it all out later.

Dates and Location


Masters, Challengers, Futures, and Hopefuls are scheduled between the players in various Discord channels, so as to broadcast them one bracket at a time throughout the month. Be flexible please or vandy will delete server.

Community Tournaments will be restreamed throughout the month by volunteer restreamers, per usual. Finals will be attempted to be broadcast on the main channel.
