Enhance Games revealed they will be holding a special esports tournament with the 2022 Tetris Effect: Connected World Championship. Happening in conjunction with the Classic Tetris World Championship taking place this October, they will be changing things up for the tournament's second year with two events designed to appeal to both the competitive and casual player skill levels. The two events will be the Tri-Effect-A and Connected 2022. The first will test players' skills in three multiplayer modes: Zone Battle, Classic Score Attack, and Score Attack, with high placement in a game mode bracket qualifying the player for the multi-mode main event. Each game mode will have a separate bracket divided into tiers based on skill level. meanwhile, the second event will be more casual as players will compete for over $2,000 in prizes and giveaways. They will also be holding an offline tournament at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo.
The tournament will be run via the Enhance Discord (https://discord.gg/enhance), where players can find their matches, watch streams and speak to tournament staff. Matches will be broadcast in English on the CTWC Twitch channel (https://twitch.tv/ClassicTetris), alongside a Japanese broadcast on the Enhance Experience Twitch channel (https://twitch.tv/EnhanceExperience).
