Portland, OR - 01/28/17 - Johnny Johnson in the Beaver

Recommended Posts

Here we go. We're actually doing it. We're gonna let Johnny Johnson run wild in the Beaver (state).

 

SirTed and I will be crossing the mighty Columbia to bring the Tecmo heat into the Rose City. Even though Gripsmoke and Tailback King are the only Tecmoers to make much noise out of P-town (one with his play, the other with his spray), they are both HOFers, and Oregon is due for some hot Tecmo action.

 

WHEN

January 28th, 2017, 11 am. 

(The Saturday between the Conference Championships and the Superbowl)

 

WHERE

Concordia Ale House 3276 NE Killingsworth St, Portland, OR 97211

(Ground Kontrol isn't big enough for all us heavyweights, I'm still down to hit it up after)

 

WHAT

Tecmo Super Bowl... and more...

(get some)

 

WYMAN

well...

 

Seattle has juice and Centralia is... centrally located, but it's time to mix it up and let Portland get some shine. The City of Roses. Bridgetown. Rip City. PDX. One of the jewels of the region and home to something in the sports world we are sorely lacking in Seattle- NBA Basketball.

 

Ted and I will be parlaying our journey South into Friday Night Memphis Grizzlies at Portland Trailblazers action 1/27. Hope you can join us.

 

AND This tournament will not just be a Tecmo Super Bowl showdown. In honor of Clyde the Glide, Terry Porter, and Rick Adelman's mustache, this event will also feature a (very small) Tecmo NBA Basketball Tournament. RIP CITY

 

WHERE YOU AT TBK!? LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

 

(as if there was any doubt... I'm already putting you on the list, best make it happen)

 

1. Gripsmoke

2. Tailback King

3. DT

4. SirTed 

5. Kamphuna

6. MAD MANYO

7. Tick

8. Xtra Largent

9. '91 Huskies

10. The Walrus

11. SuperSonics

12. Coach Pearson

13. GoBlue84

14. Cervin

15. RPW44

16. xavalepdx

17. LT#56

18. '91 Cousin

19. Invader Star

20. COULD WE GET TO TWENTY??

 

Oh this is gettin juicy. WHO ELSE??

 

Shout out your presence here in the forum or message me or SirTed up! This is your chance to be a part of the FIRST MAJOR PORTLAND TECMO Tournament and the FIRST (albeit very small) TECMO NBA BASKETBALL Tournament!

 

MORE DETAILS

 

We are STARTING at 11 am. Please don't be late. Show up EARLIER than 11, so we can do last second adjustments, explain the rules, and get to playing right away.

 

Entry Fee: $30. Payouts: $60 to the top newcomer. 3rd place gets their money back. $60 for 2nd place. Champ takes home the rest. Loser's bracket champion will once again have their choice of two prizes with the Loser's bracket runner-up getting the other.

 

FORMAT

 

Standard Madison Rules for all matchups. You may only call a certain matchup ONCE the entire day.

 

There will be 5 rounds pitting two random participants vs each other. Names will be drawn out of a hat and pitted against each other. At the conclusion of 5 rounds, the 8 competitors with the best winning percentage will be put into a double-elimination bracket to decide the Portland Tecmo Champion.

 

ALL GAMES in round 3 will be Dallas vs Phoenix: The JOHNNY FREAKIN JOHNSON round.

 

The 1st tiebreaker will be opponent's winning percentage, the 2nd tiebreaker will be Tecmo NBA winning percentage and the 3rd tiebreaker will be combined Tecmo NBA and TSB score differential. (Don't worry if you can't hoop, The 2nd and 3rd tiebreak shouldn't be a factor, really)

 

Cash prizes will be given out to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and the Top Newcomer.

 

The remaining competitors will be seeded into the loser's bracket to duke it out for their choice of a consolation prize.

 

If you were in Seattle this September, it will be very similar in structure to that only this time-

 

1) If you are late, you take an L. Be there at 11 am or risk forfeit. Exceptions will be made if we took a while to get organized or there is a shortage of TVs and there were delays otherwise, but lets everyone try to be there and ready to play by 11 am!

 

2) Everyone will get at least 6 games. Last time a certain amount of losses booted you, but this time, you can keep rollin and fight for improved seeding.

 

And also, there will be some action on the side-

 

A March Madness style single elimination Tecmo NBA tournament. Seeded randomly, this will only be for a trophy and bragging rights.

 

Pick and rolls will be executed. Facials will be administered. Roundball will be run, but the focus will be on Tecmo Super Bowl, cause thats whats up.

 

SEE YOU SATURDAY

I have a STRONG feeling this is going to be the greatest and most insane tecmo tourney of all time..... a massive and towering event of historically epic proportions, to be talked about for decades to come! whoever wins this tourney will feel compelled to mount the trophy on his gravestone so that his descendents and all other tecmo pilgrims of future generations may know exactly what quality of man lies beneath its magnificent splendor and glory!!!

 

I am willing and eager to help out anyway I can, just let me know.

the gentleman's clubs in close proximity to this event also present tantalizing possibilities, i must add

 

<<READ: will manyo hire a stripper to dress up as a tecmo cheerleader and give him a lapdance as he plays in the championship? AND/OR will he bring a trampoline so she can bounce on it at halftime, leap high into the air  and FINALLY realize the pantieless dreams of every tecmo dude in the house?!?>> HOLY SHIT!!!

Looks like Ground Kontrol hosts pinball tournaments: http://www.vice.com/read/inside-portlands-competitive-pinball-scene

 

May be time to reach out to them for the tourney, if you haven't already. 

 

Thanks for the heads up Tecbrother, but I think we have decided that the Ground Kontrol, despite being awesome, is not large enough for all of us and our Joe Nash sized shoulders, so we will be exploring other options.... It will be a large part of the weekend, however.

 

Reading between the lines, it sounds like you are yearning to participate in our PNW Tecmo shenanigans and breathe our clear PNW air. To that I say yolo. Pull the trigger. I got your room and board fo sho.

I'm a newcomer to the site but I'd love to attend if that's okay and my schedule allows. A short 3 hour drive down I-5 and I'll be their. Plus, a stop at Voodoo donuts might be a wild card. Hope to see y'all in January. Go Hawks!

 

I'm off to go buy a box of '89 upper deck (baseball) on ebay. Got my fingers crossed on a Griffey RC or two. 

 

Cheers,

SuperSonics

Uh Oh Portland. We got "SuperSonics" rollin down bringin Ricky Pierce droppin J's in your eye. Where's Blazers nation in this? You gonna let the gold and green dominate this Tecmo NBA tourney?? So far its mostly Washington cats. No surprise as we always bring more ruckus then you Oregon fools. You would think there would be some Beaver Pride on display for the first major tournament ever in the state though.

I'm a Husky so you know that I love eatin' Beaver. Ducks aren't bad though too, especially after my Dawgs hung 70 on them last Saturday. SuperSonics for life and I can't wait to show you how we hold it down on TSB up here in WA. Watch out P-Town you've got a fight coming your way. 

 

SuperSonics out!

I played for Portland State University, so f*cc the Beavers, and the Ducks!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's all about the Vikings in P~Town.  I may be bringin my long lost cuzz!n Coach Pearson to the shindig......along with the other cats.  He gets real emotional and tends to yell at the screen, good or bad...must run in the fam.

Yeah, I'm trying to make it happen, but not looking good right now. I'll update if that changes. Portland / Ground Kontrol / that strip club down the street from GK (Mary's???) are all awesome.

      i just had a great conversation with dave and suggested that the top online tecmoer for the year should get a free entry into madison, he agreed that it makes sense so said yes 
       
      how do we decide whos the online tecmoer of the year? simple - whoever has the most league titles, online tournament wins, and championship game appearances
       
      each league or tournament win isnt gonna be as much as the next. for example - a hstl title is worth the most reward points, it all just depends 
       
      HOPEFULLY BY ADDING A LITTLE INCENTIVE THIS WILL BRING MORE ATTENTION TO ONLINE TECMO 
       
      GTFO - champion = 2 reward points,  runner up = 1 reward points
      WTF -  champion = 8 reward points , runner up = 4 reward points 
      TTL - champion = 8 reward points, runner up = 4 reward points 
      TTLM - champion = 8 reward points, runner up = 4 reward points
      HSTL - champion = 10 reward points, runner up = 5 reward points
      NTGL - champion = 5 reward points, runner up = 2 reward points
       
      tournament reward points  - will be based on how many competitors and level  of the competition. example - this year thunderdome - champion = 10 reward points, runner up = 5 reward points
       
       
      Any questions or things that need to be changed like the amount of points each league is worth please let me know
       
      Leaders 
      StallTalk = 10 points  
      2018 Thunderdome champion
       
      Rico = 5 points
       2018 Thunderdome runner up
       
      Prime = 8 points
      1988 GTFO champion (2 points)
      HSTL S42 runner up (5 points)
      1989 GTFO runner up (1 point)
       
      Baxter = 1 point
      1988 GTFO runner up
       
      Tecmobo = 10 points
      HSTL S42 champion
       
      Nos = 2 points
      1989 GTFO champion (2 points)

      Hey guys, here is a example of me choosing the Seahawks against one of the all-time greatest D's, the Chicago Bears.  And by the way, the 1st play of the game was a Safety by Joe Nash.  And also, in the 2nd image is my playbook choice for Seattle, :).

      Hello,
       
      This is the 2nd time now this has happened to me. I returned the first cartridge after it only worked for about an hour. After I put it in my NES and took it out 3-4 times to play other games it stopped working. Now the 2nd TSB17 I received does not work. I put it in played 2 games and now, in the middle of the game it randomly restarted itself. Now when I try to turn the game on, the cartage will not even start up, it just has a white line across the screen. The power button just flashes. My NES has a new 72 pin connector installed in it. I have over 80 NES original cartridges and I can randomly grab any 1 of the 80 games and they will work perfectly the first time. I put in any other of my NES carts they all start right up instantly with no issues. I put in the TSB17 and get a white line. Please let me know if this is a known problem and if there is a fix? I have looked everywhere on the net and cant find any information on the subject. I also see they have stopped selling the cartridge does this mean there are know problems with the cartridges?
       
      Thanks,
       
      Steve

      Hey guys, I almost feel bad for coming here and asking a bunch of questions. I've lurked the boards for a few months and finally have some time to set aside to ask some things. Please don't be offended by my newbiness. 
       
      A group of friends and I want to SIM football. We are Simmers, mostly we SIM Fire Pro Wrestling  (before Returns and now Fire Pro Wrestling World). That community is much like this one, we've been making new memories using our favorite classic game (which is now having a rebirth with this new steam version). 
       
      Essentially we want to start out with the original 32 teams and rosters, pick our teams and simulate the games (one person would likely do the simming from their PC) the results would be posted. And we would come up with all kinds of other storylines and stuff that would make it more of an interactive story. We also want to track stats, assign awards etc, and then draft players and start a new season.
       
      Is this possible with TSB? 
       
      If so, would anyone be able to point me in the direction of the stuff we need? I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all, and I want to make sure I get the right mods etc.

      Is there a way to Mod Tecmo NBA Basketball so there's no rules? I like Tecmo NBA Basketball, but I'm never good because I get called charging everytime I drive. Is there a way to Mod it so there's at least no Charging?
