In Tetris Battle on Facebook, by some condition, the game tells you that you've "overwhelmed your opponent", and it grants you two stars rather than one.

What is that condition?

Your ranking at the end of the game determines how many stars you earn. Your ranking is determined by the following categories:

  1. Number of KO's: If you force an opponent to the top of his screen by dropping blocks, you will earn a "KO." While this is usually the determining factor in terms of wins, when playing with multiple players, if several players KO someone, other categories are considered.

  2. Number of lines sent: If you send more lines than your opponent(s).

  3. Tertromino height: How high your Tetromino reach in your matrix. The lower the stack, the more points you will earn.

If you beat your opponents in all three of the above categories, you will earn three stars ("overpowering the opponent").

Nope, that doesn't appear to be it either... hmm –  Rei Miyasaka Jul 1 '12 at 10:01
    
@ReiMiyasaka are you playing 2P or 6P? This only works in 6P if you beat ALL of your opponents in all three categories. –  Krazer Jul 4 '12 at 1:10
    
2P. I've been paying attention to what's happening, but even when I beat my opponent in all 3 conditions, I don't necessarily get 2 stars... confusing D: –  Rei Miyasaka Jul 4 '12 at 3:26
    
@ReiMiyasaka I'm not sure you can get this in 2P as it makes cheating a lot easier (have someone idle while you KO them)... Only in modes (6P Battle and probably 4P Sprint) of more than 2 players can you "overpower" you opponents. I believe you will only earn bonus stars for only the first 20 ranks. –  Krazer Jul 4 '12 at 3:45
    
I'm positive you can do it in 2P -- I don't play anything else. Maybe the rules are different for 2P? I see what you mean that people can cheat, but it looks like they haven't accounted for that, and knowing the conditions, you certainly could do cheat. –  Rei Miyasaka Jul 4 '12 at 5:39
