I have to wonder if Nintendo is just stress testing their servers in the guise of a contest.

I can't imagine Tetris is a particularly server intensive game, it doesn't require a great deal of precision of synchronisity between players.
Although it is displaying the playing field of 99 players simultaneously, the information is limited to a 10x20 grid (200 spaces) where each block has 8 possible states, which can be stored in a 3-bit value (.e.g 000 empty, 001 red, 010 green, 011 yellow, 100 blue, 101 orange, 110 purple, 111 cyan)
With 98 other playing fields to display, this amounts to 19600 blocks to track, I guess amounting to 58,800 bits of data per tick, or 7350 bytes, or less than 8kb.
And that's without accounting for the frequency of updates or ticks, there will be ticks with no update so the package size would be smaller than 8kb per tick, and it will only decrease over time as players get knocked out.

This isn't accounting for other variables like their target behaviour or the piece they are moving.

First try, 1st place.

That's cool, because I don't have more time to participate in the event this weekend.

Sorry, Sandra (2nd place)

I was browsing eShop couple of hours ago and noticed that my gold points had arrived. Got an email about it just now too. I hope they have more events like this. It was fun to compete, especially since there was a good chance of winning, at least in Europe.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

Yup, it seems like they're distributing their rewards to My Nintendo entrants now, as well as a kudos for those who did not win the 999 Gold Points.

You can see it in the alerts on the My Nintendo page.

Congrats on winning some Gold Points, @Late.

I can see this game getting a sequal in a few years. Lets call it tetris 99999999, where so many players go up against each other, it moves at 1 frame per 10 seconds!

Nice >:]

I do stupid stuff on youtube.com/mysticbros, so check it out if your bored or whatever.
Or don't, it's your time after all.

@Daloblast
I've only played 54 games and won 13 of them.
Skill level is very much a factor. What targeting you use it somewhat important, but I've had a win where I just left it on random the entire time.

Managed to get into the top 10 after 100 or so attempts. So thrilled!

Anyone else playing in the new event? I've only managed to rack up 311 points so far, unfortunately.

I'm playing in the second cup. I've only played a few hours, but I'm up to 400 points and most of my matches end in top ten finishes (I got one first place).

You guys have some tips haha? Highest rank for me is 16 but most of the time I'm ending up somewhere between 40-60 ...

I can get about 3rd or 2nd place every 10 games or so, usually finish in top 30. When the weekend started I was all psyched to try and get the points, but now I realize it's just not happening lol

Got 202 points, doubt I'll win anything though I like how Europe events are not about play for insane amounts of time to win but rather that you stand a chance of winning even if you don't play for that long.

Didn't play too much, ended with 550 points. I would love the gold coins, but I am not expecting any. I had fun, I love these tournaments.

I got about 550 too, but I did spend quite some time. I even placed 2nd once, which is my all-time best LOL

It's been funny, I hope one of my five tickets gets lucky, but I guess there is a lot of people that got many more points and they'll end up getting all the tickets. Last time winning was necessary to stand a chance, I haven't ever won and I guess with the new rules I stand a chance, but so do a lot of people that weren't eligible last time, so... we'll see.
