I live in Washington now.... but I'm pretty sure i'm gonna be there... might even fly to Ontario to run back the Tecmo Suburban quest. @toolie @modeezie?? SUBWAAAAAAY

 

I went to Canada for the first time this year, and I swear I could not go more than a mile and a half between Subways. I don't know what their obsessions is with the sandwiches, but their dedication to the franchise is insane.

I don't usually trust stadium food for a good time. Is this place legit?

 

I doubt the stadium version is any good. It's not bad for a franchise poutine fast food eatery.

Update #2

Tecmo XIII will feature a small format tweak. Top 2 seeds in the opening round will get a bye. As always, our goal is to ensure the best Tecmo experience for all of our competitors. To that end, we are going to increase the number of TVs and may reduce the overall size of the tournament. This will reduce group play times from 5 hours to (hopefully) 3 hours, meaning less time spent waiting for the good stuff to start. Additionally, this ratchets up the pressure on our top players: instead of facing a nervous first-time competitor who may not know how good their opponent is, our top players start with a giant target on their back facing an opponent with a confidence boosting win already banked.

 

As the tournament increases in size again we hope to make some more adjustments to how the tournament is run to keep things moving and give more competitors a shot at the throne.

 

Having the seeding setup this way leads us to the next major addition to the Tecmo Madison Championship as a whole.... QUALIFIERS!

Starting with TecmoXIII, we will have official qualifier tournaments. Qualifiers are hand picked tournaments that will fall under the Tecmo Madison Championship umbrella. Winners of a qualifier will be given free entry into Tecmo Madison, a travel stipend ($$$) to help get them to the tournament, one guaranteed stream game, AND an automatic first round bye. Yea, holy crap is right.

 

For now, we have one exclusive qualifier: Tundra Bowl IV. Qualifiers must adhere to standard Madison rules and be held to a strict ethical code. @RetroNathan exemplifies what we are looking for in a TMQ leader. For TecmoXIV, we hope to add two more qualifiers in addition to the Tundra Bowl.


Lastly, getting your tournament results submitted to the player database will be far easier. We will send your a formatted spreadsheet, you fill it out + send it back, and we import it. Viola. It is a piece of cake. :D **For those with upcoming tournaments, the required player info is as follows: First Name, Last Name, Email Address & Zip Code. If you do not have this information, your results will not be entered.

 

Yours in Tecmo,

For the first time ever Tecmo Madison has a theme song. The theme song and tournament logo have been revealed in this epic announcement video. Watch and bask in its glory.
