    Tournament Abundance

    This is a hard question. Its a double edge sword more tournaments means more exposure. I think the key to this situation has already happen, Having Madison Majors puts up that boundary. Its getting to the point that the small tournaments feed the Majors. If all we had was the Madison Major tournament the Tecmo Numbers and Madison number would decline. I think we kinda need those little tournaments. An average or newer player may have some success at a smaller venue and then feed into the bigger ones. Without the little guys not sure we keep getting bigger and bigger numbers.

    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    I completely understand all your reasons, but for seeding a world championship you cannot have random seeds and random rules influencing an outcome. It artificially inflates or deflates for no reason other than randomness. I am all for changing things up, but not when it comes to seeding a ~300 person tournament. 👊

    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    Thanks for the clarification. I think the road to Madison is a fine ideal. I just think it will need a year or two to really catch on.

    Yeah, I misspoke and meant to say it is mainly Man v. Com that I play. Thanks for the quick response.

    My opinion may not matter much here, but the overwhelming majority of my games are played in Pre/Pro. I won't speak for anyone else, but I think for that mode there's a better middle ground between the old and new versions (I went from about 50% W/L to 100%). Maybe splitting the difference between the two? I don't have anything insightful to add for season play since I'm a rookie player.

    Hey goji quick question if you have the time. Can you provide any numbers regarding the change in difficulty you made a while back to Juiced Plus?

    San Diego Chargers HSTL S42 Recaps

    WK 1 Raiders @ Chargers A tough divisional match-up to kick the season off. The Chargers jumped out to a 10 point lead after an opening drive FG and long TD run from Barry (setup by a Raiders fumble on a long kickoff return). Other Chargers highlights included a 50-yard JJ to the other Barry (Word), 3 field goals from trash-legged Zendejas, and Rodney Peete doing everything he could to avoid throwing in Waymer's direction. The Chargers held Mel Gray to minimal rushing yards, but had no trouble giving up big runs to Harry Sydney instead. With a 20 - 7 halftime lead, the Chargers did just enough to hold off a Raiders rally, picking Elway twice. FINAL SCORE: Chargers 23 - Raiders 14 http://hstl.tecmobowl.org/box-score.html?gID=15236 GG Zuir

    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    Now I got no objection to the submitting results part. It's too much speculation and work for you to seed Madison on just partial results. As for the other requirements I can come up with several various good reasons on why you should lower or remove the requirement. All those reason come back to having different formats are a lot of fun. For example I'm hoping this year Det goes back to random triple elimination. Also a few events with 20 or 16 or even 12 can be challenging and rewarding for those playing in it. Also a few places have trouble raising 24 people yet still have good tourney's. Basic rules are used pretty uniformly used. But these days to make it more I interesting I would have fun playing with some different rules in a small event. But that's because I go to so many events and it would spice things up.

    Guys we have a location locked down. Tomczak Bowl X will be at The Venue at 285 Main Street, Dubuque, IA. It's a bar in the basement of an old building in downtown. It's a very cool place with a nice beer selection. They don't serve food but you will be able to order food from nearby establishments. I would recommend the pizza from Shot Tower Inn. The location is in walking distance of at least 2 hotels.

    I think I'm a little late to the party in commenting but here goes. I live in Louisiana so for me to play top tier talent I have to travel, most times great distances. So I think placement of tournaments geographically does matter. I ran 3 tournaments in my home town and had a max of 18 participants but no less than 12. At my tournaments everyone had a chance to win something because I had built onto the tournament format a consolation bracket for the less talented players. So if you didn't win your group you would be seeded in the consolation bracket which didn't offer a cash prize but had trophies for 1st and 2nd place while the more "elite" players played for cash along with trophies. I did it this way knowing that new/inexperienced players would be turned off by getting beat badly by the better players. The consolation bracket allowed them to compete with players on a similar level and they'll get some enjoyment of having a chance to win along with experience and possibly return. It was a success and to be honest those consolation games were extremely exciting, maybe even more so than the "elite" bracket games. So i think consolation bracket could be huge in increasing the anount of players wjo attend. I know it was a bit off the original subject, but just felt like I needed to mention that. I know Dave has gotten interest in a consolation bracket at Madison, I will help run a side/consolation bracket if I am able to attend Madison next spring. We were fortunate enough that @davefmurray brought Tecmo Dallas this past August which included @regulator088 @joeygats @Ones11fahzu @ImFlo among others which made it, at least in my mind, a premiere event. Lastly, the dates of tournaments do matter for me since the long distances I have to travel. I would love to attend Tundra Bowl but it's date is the same as Tecmo Texas which is much closer. The tournament that end up being within a few weeks of each other is a challenge for me as well. I can't attend multiple tournament within a month or 2, it's just not logistically possible for me not to mention the cost to travel. There are tournaments i still plan to attend eventually such as Tundra Bowl, Tomzcak Bowl, Tecmo Lincoln to name a few but I'm just not sure when. My only hope is that the organisers of those tournaments continue to put them on so i can have a chance at attending.

    I didn't get around to posting about this tourney due to the long drive back to Omaha, and my Tecmo/RBI event the following weekend. Of the 5 straight Tecmo Bowl tournaments I've won, this was by far the easiest. They had a field of 32 players, and they used 8 NES mini systems. Ran very well, and even got free food! Pizza and chicken sandwhiches. I was the only 1 of the Big 4 in attendance, so it was going to take a monumental effort from someone off the street to win this. The closest anyone came to beating me was 28-6 in the semi-final game. Won the title game 27-0, and shut it down in the 4th qtr. 1st place was a 32" vizio and a NES mini. Here's a pic of me with Roy Hall, the Driven foundation president. Hall played in the NFL for a couple years with Indy and Detroit. This is supposed to be an annual deal. Hall is hoping to increase the turnout. I think with their reach in the Columbus area, they can push this to perhaps 40-48 players. I played a guy in exhibition shortly before the tourney started and won 28-0. I thought his game was pretty decent and complimented on the stuff he did well. I think that was message enough to the field. He ended up reaching the championship game against me. He was clearly one of the top players from the field, and I think he knew that, or was confident about his game coming in. He had talked me up during the event, and the fact that I easily handled him really set the tone for the whole event.
