It's a great thing when the Tecmo elite travel, especially down south which to my knowledge none have ventured this far.

 

Going to be fun

@suicideking81 Years and years ago, there was a Southwest Louisiana Tecmo Tournament that myself, the holzbauers, and rico went to west of Baton Rouge. It was small but fun.

I have attended those as well but I wasn't able to attend the tournaments that you guys attended. Lake Charles, LA., Chad N., I think his online name was bayouboy, put on those tournaments. He put on many great tournaments.

Tecmo Dallas Format & Groups!

 

The opening round will be modified Double Elimination! Full DE until the final round, where Loser’s Winner and Winner face off. Both Loser Winner & Winner advance to the big bracket, but the Finals winner will get the preferred seed.

 

The big bracket will be 16 Man Single Elimination until a Best of 3 Grand Finals!

 

We are hard locked at 32 players. Due to some unforeseen issues with the registration process, some potentially registered players have not fully completed their registrations.

 

Below are the final 28 seeds with the final 4 spots being given out game day.

 

Registrations will begin at 9:00 AM, Saturday, August 5th. Head to the main entrance and grab your badge. Tournament kicks off at 10:00 AM sharp!

 

P.S. Please know that we’ve reached out to the incomplete registrants multiple times and we are not getting responses. Assumably, these players are not coming anyway.

Any and all complaints about the format and the seeding can be directed at Dave since I won't be there and didn't get to spend my usual 5.5 months on the project :)

I'm in the lone star state.

 

The trip was excellent. I got a free butt swipe from the TSA at O'Hare. Free man-hand on ass is always appreciated. 

 

I'm visiting some friends that moved to the area, so I might not be available for any or all pregame festivities. Don't worry though, I will for sure saunter in to the tournament venue with the proper tournament hangover.

 

Dave, what is the bar situation going to be like at this thing? Am I going to have to find a liquor store?

Tecmo Dallas I was a huge success! Thanks to everyone that came out!

 

Let's Play Gaming Expo was incredible. While we were the sidecar event, it was amazing to be in the midst of 5,000 people, 1,100 of which were gamers there from all of the world to compete.

 

We sold out at our capped 32 and had a few no shows, but we also had notables from the local scene show up and bring it. Tecmo "God" Lee took Suicide King to the ropes, with SK squeaking out a last minute FG. Will C. (from Pan Handle Tecmo, this was a "championship" back in the day. Maybe @Knobbe can help me find the site.) hung with Regulator for 3.5 quarters in a tied game.

 

Our final 8 featured: @joeygats, @regulator088, Ashman, Big Hock, @Nos, @Neerrm, @duecethasa1nt & @suicideking81 .

 

We had a TMXIII finals rematch with Regulator & Gats going head to head in a final round best of 3. They provided 3 awesome games, game 1 especially, with Regulator coming out on top. (Sober Regulator is freaking scary, FYI.)

 

Thanks to @suicideking81 for bringing his setup so we could have a stream. If we do Tecmo Dallas again, there will be marked improvements in a lot of ways. We'll keep ya'll updated as always.

I will get all streamed games cut from the full stream and get them to YouTube tonight for easy viewing. Thanks again to Dave for doing this tournament along with everyone who attended for making it great fun. Hope Tecmo Dallas returns.

Personal highlights:

 

  • LPGE as a whole was ridiculous and huge.
  • Meeting new guys and seeing my brothers in Tecmo again after Madison.
  • Cosplayers.
  • Playing SFII in a VirtualBoy vs Regulator.
  • Free Play Barcade on Friday night.
  • Finding an In N Out and sharing Reg's, Ones' and Gats' first Double Double Animal Style with them.
  • Introducing Gats to Mexican food. This meat is so good it doesn't even need ranch!
  • Witnessing a Gats bowel movement so foul that I had to go the hotel lobby for 10 minutes.
  • Game 1 of the finals had a ridiculous ending. Wow. This is why I do what I do. Legit esports moment there.
  • Gatsisms are now a thing. This dude is so innocent it is hilarious. I love that he speaks his mind with no perceived judgement. It is awesome. True honesty.
  • Receiving texts from Mort, Lou, JimSocks & Diaz all talking shiz and Mort dancing in a panther suit head.

 

Great. Freaking. Weekend.

 

Love you guys. Love each other. Lift your fellow man up.
