Ok finally got this damn achievement after what had to have been 50+ hours. There is no tracking for this achievement at all. The only thing I can tell u is that I was level 39 and a half when it popped along with overachiever.
(but how much xp you get is subject to number of power ups you use .... which for me was a lot)
DOAI wrote this right away to hopefully avoid a hundred messages but its not glitched and I'm not sure what's up with the two guys who have overachiever and not this.

takuto nekoNice job! Did you use many finishers as well? The two ppl who have the other achievement but not this one seems strange. I'm currently level 32 and no idea how close but will be interesting to see if i get it around the same level as you as i am using lots of power ups but not finishers due to their cost.
Posted by takuto neko on 04 Oct 13 at 05:24
DOAI only used finishers at the start, I stopped after level 10 or so. I would think it would pop for most people between level 37-42.

DM2Thanks for posting, only level 19 but at least it gives me a target to aim for.

takuto nekoI finished this game as well about 6 hours after I wrote my above comment..I was midway in level 33 when it popped for me.

hupheryspanglerHey, I'm level 15 now and I haven't even gotten the 10k lines achievement. I've played around 300-400 games and I know that I am well over 10k because I usually get between 70-100 lines a game. I'm a little worried I'm working on a glitched achievement...

Dancsi27I am at level 15 too now (little bit over) and i got the eliminator achievement (clear 10,000 lines) last week (i dont remember the level i was when I got it, maybe level 10-11). If i am lucky, i can clear between 80 and 100 lines per games by buying only the power-up of the week in order to work on that too (own 10 power-ups chievo). The only time I use a finisher is when i win one from the spin. Same goes with the other power-ups.

AtomicInternetI got "Eliminator" toward the end of level 13. I'm keeping track of lines since it shows them in the summary screen and will try to plot my milestones against the levels.

Arron114Does it pop when you hit your 100k line. Or when the round is over?
Posted by Arron114 on 21 Oct 13 at 14:34
DOAIt popped mid-match for me
Posted by DOA on 21 Oct 13 at 14:59
BeaveHuntrI just got this today & was 3/4 though level 33. I didn't use very many power-ups and maybe 10 finishers the whole time. It's a really long grind and it does pop as soon as you hit the 100k line
Posted by BeaveHuntr on 21 Oct 13 at 20:43
BSquad56I find Quake to be the best power-up for cost:effect ratio. Magnet and Lasers are useless for this achievement.

WOODY2211So power ups do count towards the lines gained then do they??
Posted by WOODY2211 on 31 Oct 13 at 08:56
DOAYes they count.
Posted by DOA on 31 Oct 13 at 15:31
Forbin523I've been noticing that I'm averaging around 100 lines a game using only the Avalanche power up. Other power ups I have been averaging around 65-75 lines. Hope that helps.

HybridchldHas anyone gotten this since installing the update?

I was level 32 before the update and I'm up to 45 now with no sign of the achievement.

I've been counting lines since I hit 40 and I've gotten nearly 25k since then.

I think the update may have either broken the achievement or reset my progress

EMT 969hope not
Posted by EMT 969 on 08 Nov 13 at 01:57
HybridchldJust got it to pop but by the time I did I was level 47 and had 33k since 40.

I think the update reset my progress but the achievement is still obtainable after the update.
Posted by Hybridchld on 08 Nov 13 at 05:31
DM2:( reset progress! I hope not, been grinding away on this level 38/9 now...
Posted by DM2 on 08 Nov 13 at 14:25
BudniuPolskaOk, today I got this achievement on the 33 level (at the very end). From Noveber 4 I wrote summary my destroyed lines today I have 45212 and achievement appeared. I play that game from September 28 and 10000 lines I destroyed October 16. Results is not reset in the app after update for me.

EMT 969another update and the game got worse
Posted by EMT 969 on 12 Nov 13 at 17:02
EMT 969I think it reset progress I used finishers only when it was free and just the powerups of the week and I'm level 35 still no cheevo

CyberKnightJust got it, it popped during the "Last Hurrah". I'm at the tail end of Level 42 (would probably hit 43 if I played a half dozen more games). I cleared 10,000 lines in 5 days of playing, and 100,000 in 69 days.

To give some kind of context for the level and XP earned: I started off using a lot of power-ups and finishers since the game kept giving me the option (and I didn't realize how expensive they were compared to how many coins you earn per game). When I ran low on coins, I mostly stopped using them (except to buy the powerup-of-the-week for the Gatherer achievement), and it was really only the past couple weeks with over a million coins in my bank that I started using them a lot again (power-ups, not so many finishers).

Saft Und KraftIt's definitely glitched now because of the update. I started keeping track at level 29 and I have accumulated 101,000 plus since then at level 40 now.

ReD S1Xstarted on October and reached the magic number on level 37. thank god the nightmare is over.
Posted by ReD S1X on 08 Dec 13 at 02:03
Saft Und Kraft124k, level 43, no achievement.
Posted by Saft Und Kraft on 11 Dec 13 at 09:04
Dancsi27I found the timer, avalanche and quake the 3 best power ups. I can clear now between 145 and 165 lines in a game without finisher
Posted by Dancsi27 on 12 Dec 13 at 03:35
Flapjack waldiIt's not glitched but the update might reset the progress toward this achievement. It unlocked for me at level 42, i have been keeping the track since level 33 (i'm sure i was past 50k at that moment) and it popped after i did 77k more lines.
Posted by Flapjack waldi on 12 Dec 13 at 19:47
tjayarsUnlocked for me a few games after getting to level 40. Used almost no power ups or finishers before level 35 except to unlock them all by about level 20. From 35 to 40 I used avalanche, laser and time shift and no finisher.
Posted by tjayars on 13 Dec 13 at 15:46
ZpudAnother update available now

It kinda tracks your line count
Posted by Zpud on 15 Dec 13 at 17:36
WOODY2211Yeah new update and yet again its messed my line count up!! What a pain in the ass!!!
Posted by WOODY2211 on 15 Dec 13 at 17:41
WinMo KirbyNew update apologized a bit. It forgot I had a few achievements, and as soon as I "unlocked" one again, it gave me Overachiever. So, I guess we now know how those guys got Overachiever glitched.
Posted by WinMo Kirby on 15 Dec 13 at 22:06
Saft Und KraftFinally beat it after two updates and 145k lines since the first update which means I most likely had it closer to 200k lines. what a joke.

b30118218I have noticed that Tetris Blitz in the marketplace now is listed as an Indie game instead of Xbox Live, can anybody tell me if i update my game will I still be able to get my Xbox Live achievements? Im asking because I see people updating but nothing on the Xbox Live issue?
Posted by b30118218 on 16 Dec 13 at 21:51
Arron114The new update puts my bar around a tenth of the way up. I'm level 35. Has anybody else had this and unlocked it? Or is the bar now accurate meaning iv lost all my progress and a little bit of my mind.
Posted by Arron114 on 17 Dec 13 at 12:17
playerforty4I just unlocked this yesterday. I'm pretty sure that one of the first updates reset all of our lines. I was keeping track of my lines the past few weeks and it was pretty much the same... Once my bar filled up, my XBOX LIVE achievement popped + the Over Achiever achievement even though the progress bar wasn't filling up for it. So, it's still possible to get these achievements.
Posted by playerforty4 on 17 Dec 13 at 17:52
HirosansukiUnlocked at lvl 32 for me, stayed away from the second update until I obtained the achievement.
Posted by Hirosansuki on 18 Dec 13 at 21:59
CPC6128I just got the in-game achievement for 100k lines but the Live achievement is nowhere to be seen. The progress bar is at about 90%. I wonder if the Live achievement only tracks single player games and Tournament games don't count?
Posted by CPC6128 on 16 Feb 14 at 13:39
JuicyjamsAfter the udate my stuff was reset for sure. I have 18 power UPS thanks to the counter being reset after the date and oh god do I have alot left to do for this achievement. I'm level 32 and according to the counter not even half way done. No more updates For me. Also I heard those competions don't count towards your Xbox bar only the single player so try to stick to that. I will post when I pop it. I'm going to try and do a thousand a day.
Posted by Juicyjams on 27 Feb 14 at 16:05
rocking23nfnever playing tetris again in my life after this game. I also question if I will buy another EA product after playing this crap. its absolutely terrible on htc 8x.

mine popped on level 29 after what felt like forever, I would get around 100-120 lines a game, seems like 4-5 months I have been playing 20 games a day during my commute.

Dancsi27Progress is reset for me with the new update (v1.5), my progress bar for Eradicator was at 3/4 all the way, now it's back at the first letter R in Eradicator.

I am at level 35 already, which means I need to reach level 100 to clear 100,000 lines again? No way, f..k that EA releasing crappy bugged game. I am done with that, instead of fixing games, they ruin them.
Posted by Dancsi27 on 28 Feb 14 at 18:09
Dr Tinus NLDo NOT download any updates, i did and i lost my progress. The achievement section shows almost zero lines while the normal section shows about 50k lines,

Already the second time i lost 50k of lines, DAFUQ FFS.

Leadfoot2010I'm still on v1.4.0.198077.58684655, and have been holding off any updates since people have been reporting the progress reset issue. However EA is now forcing updates starting v1.7, or else you won't be able to connect to xbox live. Anyone can confirm whether the v1.7 update resets your progress?
Posted by Leadfoot2010 on 06 Jun 14 at 01:28
onlyonevinceWhen I updated a few months ago, I saw my progress bar reset on the bottom. I just got the "Eliminator" achievement today at 13,000 lines opposed to being 10,000 lines. So now I know I need to hit 103,000 to unlock this achievement.

Marcos AspiraFinally I got rid of this nightmare! 112,832 lines cleared!
Posted by Marcos Aspira on 27 Oct 14 at 16:28
Mr RodsterMy counters were slightly off. I popped the 100k lines for 100,000 coins and then later popped the achievement for 100k lines. Fortunately, I popped the achievement at 100,537 on the other counter, so they were not far off.

If anybody cares, I focused on boosts that clear lines, namely Avalanche, Bulldozer, and Laser. I would have used the Santa one but it glitched the week it was offered so I did not have it (without paying money--yeah right). I did most of my gaming in tournaments where frenzy was on, drops were fast, or both. Need for Speed is the best. Finally, the achievement popped midgame in a tournament, so tournaments definitely count.
