  5. The Pacific Northwest Tecmo League -- Season 1 (PNWTL1) DATE: Saturday, February 18, 2017 PLACE: Centralia, WA @ Coffin Corner [rural Lewis County, address released via e-mail before tourney] SCHEDULE: 1pm-3pm: Preseason (optional, but league voting for S2+ will commence around 2:30) 3pm-9pm: Regular Season 9pm-10pm: Playoffs TOURNEY LINKS: Twitter PNWTL1 League Owners (max: 8): Mad Manyo [Lewis County] <Kansas City Chiefs> ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? What is the PNWTL? The inaugural season of the PNWTL will offer 8 players around the PNW a chance to draft their own tecmo team before the tournament from the original TSB, then come together to play a LIVE season, with fully tracked and uploaded stats on the web. This will be an 8-team league. The first 8 people to register [see below] will be the founding league members, and reserve rights to retain their franchise in subsequent PNWTL seasons. Anyone beyond the initial 8 who wish to enter the league when a spot is available will be placed on a waiting list in the order they are received. League games will be played on Everdrive ROMs (and on CRT-TVs), thus enabling the saving of game stats and editing of team rosters. Manyo will be the first commissioner of this league, but otherwise the style, format and frequency of future PNWTL seasons beyond Season 1 will be decided democratically by league members. Right now, my idea would be to hold a few PNWTL seasons each year, with the next one in May or June, but the final say on this matter will be decided by league vote. How to Register? Registration will open this Wednesday at 7pm. After that time, in order to register, you need to post in this thread: (1) your desire to be in the league, (2) your commitment to being at our first season's tournament on Feb. 18, (3) your top-3 team choices from the original TSB (for your PNWTL franchise), and (4) your home town. Initial league members will be accepted in the order they are received, up to eight people max... any submissions beyond the first eight will be put on a waiting list in the order they are received. PNWTL Season 1 Format: Before the tournament, each player will draft their roster using bruddog's salary cap spreadsheet [see attached, below]. There are no reserved players so, for example, there is the potential for 8 Johnny Johnsons to be seen running the rock at this tournament. Players can select their franchise in the order they register. The League will be divided into two divisions, North and South, based on each player's geographical proximity. Each team will play 10 regular season games, 2 vs. each division opponent, and 1 vs. each non-division opponent. 2 teams from each division will make the playoffs. The #2 seed from each division will play the #1 seed from that division, and then the winners will meet in the Super Bowl. All game stats will be uploaded to dynastyphile after each game. Box score printouts will also be available at the tournament. PNWTL AND IN-GAME RULES: No rushing with WR or TE: Here is the breakdown as to who can play what position. RBs can play RB, WR, or TE, and have no restrictions at these positions. WRs can play RB, WR, or TE, but they may never run the ball from the running back position, only reverses from the wide receiver position. TEs may play RB, WR, or TE, but they may never run the ball from the running back position, only reverses from the wide receiver position. NOTE: Some teams have WRs in the RB2 slot as a default (e.g. WAS and HOU), but those WRs are still not allowed to run the ball. Please help to educate your opponent as to this rule if you see that he or she does not seem to be aware of its existence. If someone breaks the rule, call Manyo over to determine what to do next, if necessary. Ties: Ties are accepted in the regular season. But in the playoffs, if a game ends in a tie after overtime, a new game will begin, and the first player to score ("sudden death") in the new game is the winner. In this case, players must use the same playbooks as they had in the regulation game. Also, whoever received the kickoff in the first overtime must kickoff in the 2nd OT (the “new game”). Lurching: To "lurch" is to use one of your defensive linemen to dive in at the very beginning of the play and either sack the QB or tackle the RB before those plays really had a chance to develop. Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL… When crossing over the line of scrimmage WITHIN the restricted circle (SEE GRAPHIC BELOW) with a DL, before making a play on the ball carrier, you must first bump or grapple with an opposing player who is not the ball carrier. However, there are no restrictions on DL when the offense is in the shotgun or when crossing over the line of scrimmage OUTSIDE the restricted circle." 4th Man Down: Using the LB1 (4th man down) to attempt to block Field Goals or Extra Points WILL be allowed at anytime during this tournament. Coin Toss: Do not skip the coin toss unless both players agree to do so before the game. Onside Kicks: Onside kicks are allowed at any time, in any situation. Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive, or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. Controllers: Players are not allowed to bring their own controller to use in games. Nor are they allowed to switch controllers on the machine without prior agreement from both players. If there is a problem with a controller, notify your opponent AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, and if you guys can’t come to a solution on your own, ask Manyo… and again, the earlier in the game the better. Outside controllers are welcome, but they are not allowed to travel with a player throughout the tournament. Tournament Disputes: Manyo is the tournament referee. He will decide all disputes unless he is a player in the game. If he is, then Kamphuna will resolve the dispute. If they’re both playing, then it's mob rule I guess. Etiquette: It is suggested that you say good luck before, and good game after each contest. Above all, remember to have fun, battle hard, and know that the Tecmo Gods WILL play their role in determining your fate in this tournament, and their will is beyond your puny control. FOOD/DRINK/EXTRA: [details later] FEES/PRIZES: $30... with fees going toward cash prizes and other areas, based on a league vote. tecmo_salary_cap.xlsx

    Lincoln, NE - 02/04/17 - Tecmo Lincoln VII

    Signup: http://tecmobowl.org/lincoln What: Tecmobowl.org Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament Where: Lincoln, Nebraska @ Barry's Bar and Grill - http://barrysbarandgrill.com/ - Located in Downtown Lincoln in the Haymarket - 235 N. 9th St Lincoln, NE When: Saturday, Feb 4th, 2017 - Tournament Check-in between 11-11:45am, game play to start at 11:45 am How much does it cost? - $20. Pay at the event. There is an ATM if you're the guy who never has cash. Tournament Limit - Tourney will be capped at 64 players Is there a payout? - Payout will be for the top 3 finishers based on the number of people that show up at the event. I'm working on a belt/trophy for this year. Will there be food? - Yes they have a great menu. Format 4 person groups will play world cup style to determine seeding into a single elimination tournament. The semi final losers will play for 3rd/4th place. The amount of people to advance to the tournament and/or available systems will determine Rules Team Selection & Coin Toss: A manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winner will choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams). The coin-flip loser then selects either (a) one of the two teams or (b) his preferred controller. If the coin-flip loser selects his preferred controller, the coin-flip winner selects a team first. “One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. You can access your “change” screen (screen where you check player conditions and make substitutions) only twice per half. This helps speed up the games. WR or TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. Ties: Although ties are permitted in the tournament’s “group play” portion, such are not permitted in the single-elimination portion of the tournament. If a game ends in a tie after overtime, a new game will begin, and the first player to score in the new game is the winner. Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. You cannot simply go around your blocker and dive. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. Tournament Disputes: Matt Knobbe is the tournament referee. He will decide all disputes unless he is a player in the game. If he is a player in the disputed game, Travis Reinsch will resolve the dispute. Current registration list 1. Matt K - Lincoln 2. Chris W - Omaha, NE 3. Daniel S - Auburn, NE 4.

    Thunderdome IX: Groups Posted!!

    It's time! Below you will find the 10 groups and the 5 team matchups that you have a choice to call during group play. I did my best to organize the groups as even as possible. I'm sure I fucked some of it up and some are probably tougher than others, but you just gotta suck it up and win! Deadline to get at least one game in is 1/26. Have fun and please reach out to me if you have questions. Good luck to all!! Challonge Link: http://challonge.com/TDIX Tournament ROM: http://tecmobowl.org/forums/topic/69303-thunderdome-ix-tournament-rom/ IMPORTANT: Playing in this tournament will take a committment from you. If you will not be around to get games in and will slow this down, please step away now before we get started. We have two on wait list. I will do my best to keep this moving and will bug you to get games in. I am excited to award a cool prize for this so hoping you all can show your thanks and appreciation by committing to this and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

    Agreed. After implementing my own little system (that's difficult to explain) I won S28 and started sharing the knowledge after it was implemented and tested successful. I feel like my greatest Tecmo attribute is overall strategy and tilting of the odds in my favor whenever possible. I'm not excellent in any one aspect of the game. This separates the hombres from the chicos.

    Thunderdome IX: Format Details

    Tweak to format since original post! Instead of 8 groups of 5, we will move to 10 groups of 4. 1. Format: Group Play followed by Single Elimination bracket Group Play (40 Players): 10 groups with 4 players per group The 4 players will be play in a mini double elimination bracket with 2 players advancing per group into the single elim bracket. Single Elimination Bracket (20 Players): 20 remaining players will play in a single elimination bracket. The 10 group winners will receive first round byes and automatically be in the Sweet 16. Two 2nd place finishers will also receive byes based on the following tiebreakers: Point Differential Lowest Points Allowed I will make a decision on this if it comes to this. Players will be seeded based on skill with group play performance blended into seeding. I will have a bracket challenge set up on Challonge (similar to NCAA tourney pool) where winner gets a cash prize! Free to enter! 2. Matchup Selection Process No matchup calling. Each round will have 3-5 pre-determined matchups to choose from. For example, this year the 5 matchups in group play are KC-MIA, MIN-RAMS, DEN-SD, DAL-PHX, ATL-NO. These will be the matchups available to play for that round. In past Thunderdome's, teams were selected based on tiers however, it seemed like the same matchups were played over and over. I will not have any duplicate matchups throughout the tournament. In Group play we will follow the “One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup from the available matchups once throughout group play. For example, if Player A wins the toss and selects SD-DEN, Player A cannot choose that matchup again in group play if he wins the toss again. However, they can play the same matchup if their opponent chooses that matchup. *This only applies to group play since there will be multiple games played with the pre-set matchups. In single elim bracket, each round will have a different set of matchups to choose from. If someone breaks this rule and calls a matchup he already called in earlier game, the game will be REPLAYED. Team Selection & Coin Toss: Load any two player preseason game (teams are irrelevant) and run the coin toss. Coin toss winner is home (P1) and selects the matchup from the available matchups for that round. Coin toss loser is away (P2) and picks the team they would like to use from the matchup that was selected by coin toss winner. Perform a soft reset in nestopia and game on!

    Let's play: Which Team Would You Pick?

    I was recently watching my Midwest Tecmo games on the stream and was reading the comments from my CIN/T.B matchup call. The comments were consistent with what I hear a lot from folks. Even veteran players. Here's my breakdown on why I love it. I baited my man @manyo360 in the round of 32 in Madison some years back. Manyo, is this in the black book now? Tampa Bay's weaknesses are: OL, DL, LB and that's it. Throw in an All-Tecmo defender with a top 5 DB unit combined with a 31ms QB and a 94HP RB/TE. There's good value to eek out here in the right hands. Cincinnati's weaknesses are: DL, LB, and WR. In this matchup Cincy's impotent DL cancels out T.B's shitty OL (which is the fear, usually. no one wants Vinny running for his life with that low PS). Yeah, Francis has 69HP but coincidentally T.Bs best lineman is at OL4 sporting a healthy 50HP to keep Francis in check under average conditions. I call this the Paul Han(d)s Gruber effect. The shitty WR's of Cincy against a top DB squad in Tampa Bay make throwing into coverage very dangerous. Get up early with T.B in this matchup and it's very hard for the Bungles to come clawing back. If your opponent does not take the bait and picks T.B you still have the "better" team in the Bengals. Brooks, Boomer and Fo-Rock can always get it done in the right hands. Also, at a quick glance these teams are similar with mobile QBs and single stud DBs. So as far as playbooks go.... choose wisely. Watch it at 7:54 - I'm the Bengals. AJ didn't take the bait. I go on to win this tournament.

    oh and that was all tested against the typical run and shoot plays, which I believe matters in terms of which guys are covered, amongst other factors..... and all of this I would also say a top-3 reason why I won an HSTL Bowl, either from using the results of these experiments to my benefit (and I did on a handful of ocassions in my playoff run) OR because I wanted it bad enough to do such deep diGGing and the gods rewarded my true grit, PROBABLY the latter.

    Hell yeah. Once someone gets good enough at offense (that's not a shot at you lol) they can spend a bit more on defense for pre-play reads. I really grew used to having my best LB at LB1, second best at LB4 (really just to make my opponent at least think about it), highest INT DB at DB1 (because he drops back more) and next "best" DB at DB4 (with a hard-on for HP). If I only have one DB he goes to DB3. Fuck, I miss this stuff.

    Coin Toss Selection

    The coin flip rules from Madison were actually in place from about Tecmo 7 or 8 on - the rules kept being amended because of near constant complaints about who gets P1. After discussing the situation, and taking in to account the constant complaints, we decided to simplify the coin toss system due to the fact that no one wanted to win the toss. That put the tournament in a situation where a majority of players were not happy with winning the toss because the loser of the toss received P1 unless the winner chose a matchup that was so one-sided as to overcome the prejudice against P2 (Just off the top of my head Tecmo VII and Tecmo XII were won from P2 side). Since the general feel of the competitors was that P1 was important and that matchup choice was not important - most people choose a neutral matchup, we allowed for the fact that if a player chooses the matchup (bad by a large group of people) then that player receives a mental bonus of P1 (good by a majority of people). However, if a player wishes to choose the team from a matchup, that player can pass on P1 to grab a preferred team (like if you called Rams - Anyone against @averagetsbplayer, he'll give up P1 for the Rams). This simplifies things. And as the guy who, on tournament day, listened to every single P1/P2 complaint and the endless complaining about the "unfairness" of the 5 year old coin flip system, I like the simplicity of this "not really newer" format.

    COMMISSIONER'S BLOG: Coverage Schemes

    @OL' Dirty Tecmo @manyo360 One thing you have to be careful with in scouting the actions the com is to make sure you do it in preseason mode. Probably obvious but worth noting. coverage "juice" starts kicking in around week 2 or 3 for some defender actions. Typically the 3rd and 4th run plays give you the best "run play defense call" pass defense vs runs 1 and 2. Hence if you want to sit on run calling run 3 a better bet than any other run as you might still get some pass coverage. Also there is usually at least 2LB's who do nothing in coverage and just pass rush. You just have to know which ones they are. This is also why using a DL can be VERY useful b/c you will maximize the potential coverage for the play. Obviously this is more risky the better the QB is if your low int DL is left having to cover a streak route. @red98sethuthut no i haven't done every play as its VERY tedious. There are 3 different sets of coverages depending what play you pick..typically For pass typicall but not always SET 1= WEAK = ( run1,run2), SET 2 = MEDIUM =( run3, run4) SET 3= STRONG = any pass Then each of those coverage sets has variations. Here is one that i think is accurate for when you call a PASS vs R&S pass 1. This assumes you have picked a pass defense We all know the RB is the most likely to be open in R&S pass 1 and the simulated numbers bear this out. To maximize coverage in this play you want to be the ROLB, LILB, LOLB.. not the best players for stopping run 3. Even picking a LB ~40% of the time you will have nearly two gives you have to choose from. the percentages in this pic are approximate as I'm not doing enough sims in the excel sheet to get the numbers to converge on their true value. pass1 coverage.bmp Here is the excel sheet (pressing enter on any cell will update the %'s as its just doing a sim) pass1.xls

    I complied this spreadsheet a while back, and I figured it may be helpful for those looking for an organized resource of player stats for attribute setting. It should be every player stat of every team from 1978-2006. Why those years? I chose this for my own editing because I thought it represented a solid consistent period in the NFL. There's an influx of better player stats in 2006. Also, changes to defensive passing rules in 2007 really changed the statistical landscape going forward. 1978 was the first year of 16 game and was also a year with significant passing rules changes that really effected the statistical landscape. Things to note on spreadsheet: Player numbers are listed, which is super helpful Player weight is listed All return stats are included I modeled target data from 1978-1997 based on stats from 1998-2006. The model's R-squared came in 0.98 and all variables had significance under 0.0001 so it's pretty solid Now if only there was a spreadsheet with some sort of Face values.... Happy Editing! 1978-2006 Master Data.xlsx

    (SNES) Ken Griffey Baseball 2016

    Okay, here it is. I've copied all of the teams from the 2016 version into the batters and pitchers tabs. I've created templates for Atlanta and Toronto (I'm a Braves fan living in Canada lol). So there's one NL and one AL team shown here. If you duplicate either of these, depending on which league, you can copy and paste players from the pitchers/batters tabs (which are sorted alphabetically) into the tables and edit them easily in different cells per value. At the bottom, I've set it up to auto update the gray area to combine all the cells into a single string, that way you don't need to delete the tabbed over space when you copy it to notepad/whatever txt editor you use. Any issues, let me know and I'll fix it up. I didn't finished Toronto's bullpen...just like them in real life right now. KGB_Templates.xlsx
