Tetris (Game Boy) Forum  /  B-Type Highscore/Time runs

I think having a B-Type (25 lines) category would be fun,
we could either run for time or Highscore.
Highscore is also measured by how many tiles someone pressed down, so it is kinda bound to time too.

Aside from that, I think it's just too short a category to be worth tracking, since most runs would end up around or below 1 minute.

The highscore is measured by how many tiles you pressed down so it implies being fast.
It would obviously not be a long run and its not really a "speedrun" but for example crazy taxi long jump is also not a speedrun.
Honestly i just want an official ladder for this category because thats all i play from time to time and i feel like i got the wr 😃

If it's not a speedrun, it doesn't belong on a leaderboard on this site. That doesn't change by what some other communities might or might not have done in the past. They're certainly not encouraged to abuse the system and neither should those cases be taken as precedent.
That said, collecting highscores on a spreadsheet and organizing that in a forum post here is absolutely fine and encouraged. It's just that this particular category goes explicitly against the speedrun meta, because the fastest time has no chance at being the highest score at the same time.

SGB2 doesn't need a time conversion, @breastickle ;-)
