If you are new to this website, this is a good place to start.
The basic principle of Worldwide Combos is that you need to fill the lines of the grid with blocks. Once a line is filled, is disappears, preventing you from topping out.
When you play, you use one block at a time. You can do the following moves with it.
xkey), or 180° (with the
When you play, your side should look like this:
The key binds that were given above are actually the default key binds. It is possible to change these, in the Game Settings. You may access these settings from the Dashboard (bottom-right button).
When you try to move left, right or down, and hold the key, your block first moves by one line or one column, then after some amount of time the block starts moving at a higher rate. These are the Delay and Repeat rates. As for the key binds, you may customise them in the Game Settings. The are asked to fill values in milliseconds.
Note that, putting lower delay and repeat rates may help you play faster, but putting too low values may result in losing control and misdropping your blocks (this is usually annoying).
The number of lines that are sent is computed as follows. Note that scores below are cumulative.
|Number of combos||Lines sent|
|B2B T-Spin Mini||1|
|B2B T-Spin Single||1|
|B2B T-Spin Double||2|
|B2B T-Spin Triple||3|
The winner of a game should be the player who was knocked out the less.
In case of a tie, the winner is the player who sent the most lines to his opponent.
If there is still a tie, then we consider the height of the highest block in each player's grid. The player who has the lowest such block wins.
If there is still a tie, then nobody wins.
As said before, there are two distinct rankings: the solo ranking and the multiplayer ranking. For both of them, you need a valid account to be in.
Both ratings are similar to an Elo rating. Yet, the outcome of the game is 1 or 0 if or only if you win or lose by a sufficient amount of KOs. The outcome will be at least 0.8 if you win by at least 1 KO, 0.7 if you win because of the number of sent lines, 0.6 if you win with the numbers of KOs and lines sent being equal.
Please note that, winning a match doesn't guarantee that your rating change will be positive.
There is also a ranking based on tournament results. You gain points according to your ranking on every tournament you take part in. These points fade one year after the tournament has ended.
How can I change my key binds and my speed tunings?
In your dashboard, click on "Options", which is the bottom-right button.
In the ghostbuster mode, my opponent freezes and gets knocked out alone.
This is because in some previous versions the replays would not save correctly. Replays that are broken are removed one by one when someone finds them. This problem should disappear in the long term.
In the multiplayer mode, my opponent's grid does not display correctly.
This is a bug that has not been solved yet. However, scores and match results are updated correctly whatever you may see. Sorry for the inconvenience!
