Bracket

32 player bracket has been requested by many. To respect the longer plays and the schedule we expect to set up sp 4 players play at the same time (competing in pairs as usual) until the time frame clears and we can focus on single 2 players matches. This means, two matches will be played parallel at the same time.

Weekend Overview

DAY ONE: Friday is full of qualification buzz & we expect highscores at a previously unseen level. Tensions are high and players fight for their spot in the 2022 championship bracket.

CTEC players can compete on both the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System & the handheld classic Game Boy. The program leaves room for both competitions. 

DAY TWO: Saturday. Let the pieces rain! Saturday will kick off with the last qualification scores and then it is on like the Tetris long … bar. Commentators will guide the audience through the fast paste Tetris supported by cheering & gasps from the crowd. 

CTEC is an open cup and welcomes the whole world to play Tetris on PAL mode on original hardware and lovely CRT TVs  in Copenhagen. Classic eSports at its finest!

For guests/audience & players we have also set up a bunch of different Tetris versions on many different videogame console platforms to play for free. There is no pressure to play and we will also set up a fun-station for everyone to see how far they can get in this wonderful game. 

It is possible to buy soda & alcohol on location. Stay hydrated.

After the event we will meet up at the Tetris after-party Bip Bip Bar, Fælledvej 7, 2200 Copenhagen.

Enigma Museum will officially open in 2023 and the rooms do not hold Museum articles when the event is held there. We are in the fully restored section – lending empty rooms to fill with Tetris love.

Tetris Week in Copenhagen

This is your chance to warm up before doors open to CTEC 2022. 

Activities and meet-ups will be announced for anyone who wants to meet-up in the spirit of Tetris. 

Wednesday

Dyst’s Battle Gaiden side-tournament!
CTEC is about community & the many persons who participate. Dyst is once again ready to play outside the CTEC walls and do his magic at Bip Bip Bar, Fælledvej 7, 2200 Copenhagen. It is always great fun and a cozy way to meet others and to play with Dyst. Since he is also a name in the poetry world he asked for Wednesday the 16th (CTEC week) and once again supports the idea of a whole week dedicated to Tetris here in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Dyst describes it this way:
“Hello Tetris people! on Wednesday the 16th of November I will once again be hosting two small side tournaments were we will find a new CST2C (Classic Super Tetris 2 Champion) and CTBGC (Classic Tetris Battle Gaiden Champion)… the glorious event will take place at Bip Bip Bar, it will start at 8PM with Super Tetris 2 (with Tetris Battle Gaiden starting immediately after) and you can win homemade trophies and eternal glory and stuff…. signup for both tournaments will be at the bar upstairs.”

CLASSIC GAME BOY LIMITATION BUG

Please remember that we play on original Game Boys and that their hardware has this challenge. It is not the CTEC equipment, it is how the Game Boy is build.

As mentioned in the video – you are allowed to bring your own classic Game Boy. However, only to be used when we are not competing via VGA (as it will add benefits to some). VGA is expected in the finals and maybe earlier in the bracket. Depending on attendance and number of Game Boys brought along.
