There are some differences in the amount of garbage sent in Tetris vs Puyo versus Tetris vs Tetris.

  • A Tetris (4) sends more compared to a T-Spin double (3).
  • Perfect clears used to send much more garbage in the past (10 vs 6), but has since been nerfed. Same applies to T-Spin triple, which sends a same amount of garbage (4) as a Tetris (4) now. Therefore, at the moment, you get diminished returns for perfect clears and T-Spin triples compared to the difficulty of setting these up. Perfect clears should be considered as just another form of attack.
  • A B2B Tetris (5) is almost as strong as a perfect clear (6).

Short combos are not that useful. Long combos are not as powerful in Tetris vs Puyo matches because it gives Puyo players time to build their chain which exponentially increases their attack.

Combining Attacks

Attacks sent together can be powerful.

While 2 Tetrises sent separately sends a total of 18 nuisance puyos (8 + 10), 2 Tetrises sent together sends 24 nuisance puyos. The difference is a whole another row.

Another example: 2 Tetrises and an additional line clear (2 combo) sent together sends 28 nuisance puyos, which is equivalent to 3 Tetrises sent separately (8 + 10 + 10). Compared to 2 Tetrises sent separately, you send almost 2 more rows of nuisance.

However, do not purposefully delay sending your attack against advanced puyo players. They can easily outchain you while you're building up your field, and combined attackes are not sent until you finish your combo. Your primary goal should be doing constant harassments to isolate their puyos as much as possible. Combining attacks are usually done to finish off your opponent.

Sending Doubles

Doubles will send 4 nuisance puyos while triples will send 5 nuisance puyos. Single line clears will send 0 nuisance puyos. Every time a puyo player gets nuisance puyos, they are forced to to wait for the animation to finish before they place their next puyo. If you are in a position where you need to downstack, clearing two lines at a time could be a good strategy. One thing to keep in mind while doing this is to avoid small combos because they are very ineffective as stated earlier.

For the same reason, T-Spin Minis are actually a good form of attack in Tetris vs Puyo.

This strategy is very effective when margin time is applied to Tetris.

Semi-Technical Details

Semi-technical details specific to PPT that are helpful to know.

Garbage System

credit to Okey_Dokey for the information

"There's a high chance that the hole changes after each garbage insertion (90% chance). And during each garbage insertion, there's a 30% chance that the hole changes after each line (that means the hole changes roughly 1 time during the 4 or 5 lines sent by a Tetris).

In Puyo Puyo Tetris, the game considers all lines inserted simultaneously in your playfield as one attack. For example, if the opponent does a Double and another Double, and you make no piece placement in the meantime, then both lines will have the garbage hole usually in the same column."

In summary, stalling can make garbage cleaner in PPT.

VSync

Turn VSync off. Although VSync elminiates screen tearing, it introduces input lag. The lag has been estimated to be around 4 frames which is enough to make the pieces feel sluggish.
