Joseph Saelee vs Jonas Neubauer
CTWC or known as Classic Tetris World Championship this year left a new history. Sixteen years old underdog, Joseph Saelee manage to defeat the seven times champion of CTWC, Jonas Neubauer in a three-round game perfectly. Joseph Saelee attends this championship for the first time and he never expects that he will win this championship on the first time he debut. Jonas claim that he will get his eight champion title this year, however, Joseph unexpectedly stole his dream to get eight titles this year. The feat made by Joseph is also not an easy task as well.

Tetris New Record

Joseph Saelee also achieves a feat that even Jonas and other Tetris players cannot achieve it. He is recorded to reaches level 31 and 32 for the first time. Not only that, but he is also the only person that managed to reach that level. So far, none of the other professional Tetris players manage to catch up with Joseph's feat. “The kid played with pure heart, the most clutch Tetris that we’ve seen from anyone,” Neubauer said after the dust had settled. “He just really had the ability, had the natural ability, and let it shine as bright as he could in his first tournament. [It’s] truly an honor to pass the torch to the new generation of Tetris players.” Joseph manages to defeat other veteran Tetris player on his first debut. It's quite a remarkable achievement for the first time attending this world championship.

Joseph's Technique Statement

Based information got from, they manage to get an insight on how Joseph plays his technique to become a champion. Here's their statement: Unlike many other top players, including Neubauer, Saelee uses hyper-tapping, a technique that requires players to press the D-pad rapidly at the correct intervals in order to move Tetris pieces in different directions without losing speed. Normally players just hold down left or right on the D-pad. Saelee’s strategy, on the other hand, requires more than 10 button presses a second to be effective. It’s a riskier and more demanding style of play, but one that ended up paying off… Saelee seemed equal parts ecstatic and in disbelief. “I don’t know how to feel. I’m still recovering. It’s absolutely a dream,” said the high school student, his smile showing the braces still on his teeth. “ I came into this tournament just to qualify, just to meet all these great people, and to win, that’s just amazing, I don’t know what to say.” Having finally unseated the longstanding champion, Saelee has helped usher in a new period of excitement for the retro game. His meteoric rise will likely inspire others to jump into the soon-to-be 30-year-old game. Meanwhile, Neubauer has his work cut out for him when the two return at next year’s Championship. Fans are expecting their return to the next year's Championship, hoping for a more intense fight.
