I agree! What's most intriguing to me is the whole stick-with-one-team throughout concept. Just playing with numbers. Let's say Mort goes 3-0 and takes the Bears. Regulator goes 2-1 and takes the Lions. Gats goes 1-2 and takes the Saints. Who doesn't want to see Gats try to run the table with the Saints? CAUSE I DO. 

 

Things will get especially interesting if few or none of the groups provide players that go either 3-0 or 0-3. Then where you fall in the lottery becomes SUPER significant -- if you go 2-1 there's a roll of the dice distance from getting your first pick to getting your 10th. 

 

I'm trying to get there but can't. The RNG of this format is quite significant and I am not sure I would want to watch Gats 1-2 with NO as a static team. I definitely would not want to watch a Mort CHI vs Gats NO game. It would be a total slaughter while then also relying on RNG to make the matchup mildly interesting. So, the tournament outcome is RNG x RNG = ?. I am all for change and innovation but this format has far too many changes in one go for me.

This is going to be a fun format.  I knew it wasn't to going to be for everyone hence the 20 player max.  I'm glad some of the elite players are taking the challenge.  In a year when Tecmo tournaments and enthusiasm is at a all time high, I figured it was worth a shot to do something completely different.

 

My thinking in creating this format was the inclusion of things I like from different sports and leagues:  Superior vs Inferior 4 team divisions in the NFL, the NBA Draft Lottery, the NFL / NBA / Fantasy Drafts, and Cinderella teams in the basketball NCAA Tournament (whether it ends up being elite player with mid-lower tier team or good player with high tier team or neither).   Also, by keeping it small, all players will have a chance to get on the stream during the live team draft.  I'm looking forward to running this tournament and I'm pleased to see the enthusiasm and buy in from the players attending.

This will be the best group play ever.

 

I'm bringing the broom, cause I plan on sweeping.

 

There really ought to be a special prize if someone does sweep the most elite group of Tecmo players the world has ever seen. 

 

Like, a Nimbus 2000 with your name monogrammed on it along with documentation of said group play victories. 

 

Or maybe an aircraft carrier. If Flo beats three Madison champs consecutively in group play, that's about the only thing that would be large enough to hold his bragging rights.

That wouldn't be a problem Hank.  Are you guys 100% not able to come?  Or do you want until the end of the week to see if you guys can figure it out?

The very thought of me sober has already scared some away!

I, for one, am not afraid of sober Regulator.* 

 

*I've also never played sober or drunk Regulator competitively, so my opinion is fairly worthless.

Everyone should be afraid of sober @regulator088, especially @joeygats & @Coconuts .

The group play should be really competitive! My guess is the top two would look something like this:

 

GROUP OF DEATH:

Gats

Reg

Mort

Flo

 

GROUP OF COMA:

Lou

TecmoBo

Hank

Tom/Joe/Shark/Immortal (haven't played some of these guys so not sure)

If Hank and Gats are out due to issues, then its probably:

 

Reg, Mort, Flo, TecmoBo

 

Lou, Tom, and two other guys

 

Should be entertaining I suppose.
