I tried to learn puyo but I'm way too lazy to figure out how to set up chains and stuff so I'm terrible at it.

I've got it on Switch and am always down to play but I'm not particularly good unless it's just Tetris and that's kinda boring.

Thanks for the *Important* reminder.

Is there a guide or tutorial for adding custom chars? I got some ideas.

Swap is in fact the most fun but we can do vs sometime, sure. It's not great for 4 player casual games imo cause without swap combo fuckery available the weaker players have even less of a chance.

What's the highest you've seen in ranked PPT? I had a 22000, 60th in world last night. He wasn't playing serious, he'd build a stack at inhuman speed then let his Tetrises soft drop while waiting to see what I desperately responded with.

I'm still terrible at this but I've been watching mid-high level players play this on Twitch all morning and it's just fascinating to me. The way a fight between a good Tetris player and a good Puyo player can still be so balanced. Such a good game.

It's all Tetris at tip top level but otherwise it's surprisingly good. Where I am Puyo actually feels a little stronger since it's hard to score that final knockout blow as Tetris.

The guy I was watching wasn't exactly super high tier (250 world rank I think) but it seemed like he was getting pushed around by good Puyo players a bit. It seems like it's easier to set up a super chain and then hope you can set it off. Meanwhile a good Tetris player always has to be on their feet trying to keep up with the junk pile.

Either way it's still super fun to watch even if my brain can't process it.

I kind of agree with everything Steelix said in that epic 50 page salt post but at the same time I'm still having fun.

Making the patch changes affect puyo vs puyo was really dumb though.

Just want some advice on setting up counter chains and instead I get vilely trolled.

dragon enthusiast
Jan 1, 2010


stop laying your puyos flat and take advantage of verticality

for example if you bout to get hit with 1-2 rows of garbage


if you lay your next piece down flat your trigger gets buried


lay it vertically instead and you still have access to your chain

Thanks, I've sort of been working that out but I'm wondering, are there are any set opening forms better suited vs Tetris than GTR? I see some people make a big three wide tail structure on the right side right off the bat.

dragon enthusiast

also i see a bunch of bad players all the time try to match colors with the one that just got buried



like yeah i guess you can dig with that after a while but its way easier if you leave at least one color of separation

that's called devil counter
https://puyonexus.com/wiki/Counter#Evil_Counter

its kinda hard to build though so a lot of people attempt holy counter instead

the other counter setups on that page aren't really practical unless you get really bored

Yes, this is another lesson I've been learning the hard way. It's absolutely beautiful when a little 2 or 3 chain continues through the garbage and hits a trigger that got buried what feels like ages ago.

(And then you die anyway cause of some 4wide horseshit)

e: that holy counter is exactly what I needed. I understand the basic idea of the counter but having an ideal form to follow instead of flailing with improvisation is really gonna help. Thanks!
