Do all the prelims gatherings give free entry to first place?

Is there a max number of signups for this tourney?

 

Yes, all prelims give attendees a chance for free entry if they win first place. There are no max sign-ups for these tournaments as they support the larger Tecmo Cleveland effort and local bars/restaurants. If you win an entry at one of the tournaments by coming in first, I would just not be able to honor another free entry because it's demoralizing to all other attendees, if that makes sense? We've yet to have this problem yet as someone new/different has won each time - which is great! But, by all means come to as many as you want until you win and even beyond that *you could always give your entry to the runner-up!

We will do walk-ins the day of, but we'll likely have to cut it off by 11-11:30 because the tournament is scheduled to start at noon and there won't be any day of discount or guarantee of shirt size/availability. If you register ahead of time it's just easier/cheaper for everyone overall but we get the scheduling thing is a challenge too.

I signed up and registered for this tournament a while back, but recently have been fortunate enough to attend few of the "promo events"

These have been a lot of fun and the excitement is building for the main event on Saturday, August 5th!

 

During these events, I have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Tom (TecmoCleveland).

While he is relatively new to the Tecmo community on this forum, he and a group of friends have been hosting tournaments in their basements for many years.

It is always great to come across new players and hear these types of stories.

 

He has great passion for the game we all know and love - and put forth a tremendous amount of time and effort promoting this tournament.

There are already over 30 players signed up and confirmed to participate with a little less than a month to go!

 

As several of you know, I hosted (or assisted with) a few tournaments in the Cleveland area several years ago and have participated in many others (Madison, Cincy, Detroit, Buffalo, Columbus, etc.).  However, I never promoted mine to the scale Tom has through social media and having events leading up to the main event.  He has done a nice job selecting some unique venues for these events on both the east and west side of Cleveland such as Happy Dog, Hofbrauhas, Ohio Beer Garden, 16-Bit Bar, etc.

 

After attending some of these promotional events and getting to know Tom, I am convinced that this will be an awesome event for everyone who can make it!

 

Cleveland is a short drive (less than 4 hours) from these other cities that have hosted Tecmo Tournaments:

-1.25 hours from Youngstown, OH

-1.5 hours from Salem, OH

-1.75 hours from Beaver Falls, PA

-2.25 hours from Columbus, OH

-3 hours from Buffalo, NY

-3.5 hours from Detroit, MI

-3.75 hours from Cincinnati, OH

 

Long live Tecmo!

I'd say pretty much every dollar coming in is going out the door - I'm definitely losing money overall with investment in new consoles, tvs, games, controllers, prizes, shirts, venue, signage, etc. but I do it b/c I love it and want to grow this thing grassroots and with you guys. I'm doing the grand-prize pool based on % of registration; so right now today with 48 registrants that puts us at 63% of goal so grand prize would currently sit at and around $315. If we get to the full 76 registrants we'll be at $500 grand prize; which I'm hoping we'll be able to do. We're having a piece go out on local news (channel 19 & 43 later this week) and we were in the large Cleveland paper, Plain Dealer on Saturday - and have seen a definite spike in reg. 

 

But I don't know the exact % dollar for dollar; I'm calculating based on percent to goal of registration because there are so many of the other hard cost variables (above). Plus, with giving away some registrations for events, discount codes, etc. I don't have a definitive dollar for dollar calculation. Hope this helps! Thanks. Tom

      With the CFL season just around the corner I decided to do a 2018 update to this great rom. I have added the hack to help ball carriers to crash through the line better. I have also changed the NFL all star team to include the original TSB all stars!  I have uploaded 2 roms again, and there are now 7 ninute quarters!

      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

      A few people have been asking for a CFL rom on this site, so here it is! The B.C. Lions helmet needs to be updated, as well as the schedule. If anyone could help me with that, it'd be great! This is my first rom, so if anybody is having problems downloading it let me know!
