    North Dakota - Burning Mort II

    ...and we have a winner. I don't have many pictures or videos from the event. The ones I do have have already surfaced. I do want to throw out some very well-deserved thank you's in hosting the second iteration of Burning Mort...which is two more iterations than the world really needed to see. Thanks to all of the North Dakota Tecmo group for taking time away from real life over the course of the last few months to put together ideas, props, idiocy for something that is most decidedly not real life. Special thanks to Dr. Frolf - the amount of work he puts into this thing is just insane. He takes it from shirtless camping trip to techno dance remixes and Disneyland maps. Your work on Burning Mort cannot be understated or undersold. Thanks to to the Conjurer and his assistant. What was once a simple afterthought piece of Burning Mort quickly became the centerpiece and it's awesome. We are all in their debt, for Tecmo and for life. Thanks to Dave Murray and Brude for all the work they put in. The custom ROMs were a huge hit, and Dave's constant work on the multimedia is fantastic. I am still laughing at the Conjurer vs. Orenga scene on eatshitorenga.com right now. Both coasts collaborating to hit a homerun in the Great Plains. The Tecmo community is pretty rad. Thank you to all of the competitors. It is simply ridiculous that you would travel as far as you do for something so ridiculous, but we are glad you do. There were 16 competitors, and 11 of which traveled. It was a blast having each and every one of you there, and I had an uproariously good time with all of you. My face hurt from laughing dozens of times that day, and the night before. That was a righteous group of idiots that we put together. At the end of the night, the Conjurer handed out awards. These were entirely his picks: Champions - Tribe Chet MVP - Mort Rookie of the Year - Segathon Conjurer's Pet - sonofpatbeach Finally, I figured I would throw in one inside joke memory about each participant that stands out to me: Chet - Passing out around 1:30, and being threatened the next day to be added to the Burning Mort graveyard Josh - Stocking my fridge with Bud Light and buffalo chicken burritos Orenga - Getting pissed that we didn't throw BUF/NE in the beer helmet round to set the proper tone. We blew that one. Durch - Shedding his Gannonball Run shirt for the belly Badgers model. Paperboy savant. Segathon - Having Burning Mort written all over everything - car, flesh, shorts Beef Juice - Ordered a Colt 45 40 to start the weekend and put that SOB on Twitter arncoem- Made up a story to his wife, burned a thousand darts while he was free, and slept most of Sunday away with me (in a mostly non-gay way) Dot Don - The chief of the coolest tribe there. Must have ninja'd out way early before we could properly pay homage. Mort - Put up with the drunken mess; declared Burning Mort to be the best time other than his sexual conquests Lou - Slept in a van instead of the bare ground. Sacrificed his Tupa Bowl shirt to the fire. Murray - Tetris vs. Mort. Ruthless domination. Dr. Frolf - Somehow got a band with a giant mixing board, lights, and talent to perform in the woods Barry - Asking the band, "So is the first time you've played a Burning Mort?" Tucker - Pounded Chet in mirror Tecmo Bryce - Contributed "Good Ass Beer" - three words that will live in Burning Mort infamy Enjoy those gold pants, gentlemen.

    great post @Leonardite I think @DrFrolf is the Elon Musk of Tecmo. I am still not fully in this plane of existence yet. The Conjurer's gift of ROY has put enough magic around me that I have walked between worlds this week. Spaced out on a meeting yesterday at work and was driving through my neighborhood this morning see all the garabage cans out and thought to myself "wonder while they are putting out the garbage a day early" BUT the weirdest thing is this picture of me and my siblings is starting to fade out

    Our main man, David Fulcher, has confirmed that he will be attending Midwest 10! He will have plenty of signed memorabilia on hand for purchase in order to support the David Fulcher Foundation for awareness of multiple sclerosis. We will be raffling off a chance to play Fulcher in a game of Tecmo as well. He will man the Bengals, you will man a team tiered below the Bengals.

    There are unwavering commitments and sacrifices to be made. You must be one with The Conjurer. "Squeezes and deaths" do not please him. Only through continued promise will you be added to the short, short tribal comrade register. Those selected from the register to attend must verse themselves in the Burning Mort annals, thereby guaranteeing that all comrades comprehend the experience.

    While I have not attended a Burning Mort I did go to the Tecmo Ryder Cup in ND and I have to say that the ND crew are the biggest bad-asses in all the tecmo-verse. I regret not attending this year.

    "Golden Era" ('85-'95) top 10 running backs

    decent question, but why in this thread? none of the guys you mentioned are really relevant to the topic, except for maybe Payton, but like I said earlier, he was basically done after '85. and the thread is about the RBs of 85-95 era. but anyways, yes, Adrian Peterson belong in the top tier. I guess I like to look at players in "eras" or certain chunks of time/history. For one thing, it's hard to compare due to the nuances (rules, styles, philosophies) of the game (football) changing over time, along with the obvious difference in physical size of American human beings these days (something is in the food/water), and health/physical fitness awareness, injury recovery/treatment, etc. although I do not like (to watch) him as much as Jim Brown or Payton, (or even vintage OJ Simpson), or Barry Sanders....anyways, if you look at Peterson's era, he is (one of, at least) the best. and that puts him in the elite level by default. 4.9 career ypc! 95 ypg career...dang, you can't ignore those stats. so, what do You think about Peterson, Pocky? you've been studying running backs for a while now.

    OK Fellas, here's a recap. Once everyone got here, we ended up doing a kind of group play with 3 groups of guys tiered per historical success in PNW tourneys etc. The 3 groups ended up as conferences on @brookstonfowler 's CFT Phile linked below. http://www.pnw.puretecmo.com/main/main.php Group 1 was the Puget Sound featuring me, @DT. and @invader_star64 Group 2 was Cascadia featuring @Tick , @boogiewithstu , and @SirTed Group 3 was the Hinterlands featuring @XtraLargent , Joe, and JayMC425 We played 3 weeks of "group play" and then 3 weeks of Kamp picks of matchups trying to create the most excitement with past historical classics and matching guys up who haven't played much (also trying to keep from guys who've played each other a ton from doing so like Me and Jay, and Stu and Joe) Last few weeks of regular season we basically just tried to mix it up as much as possible since we lost Ted and were gearing towards a double elim playoff after "10 weeks". Ted and Tick decided to get started early to save time, and I said fine, but forgot to make sure that the correct guy was home and away so we made this a "later" matchup and they ended up playing again. Ted won both and in some sick twist of fate, I think both games were 28 14. The stream's first matchup was a great one. Me vs DT, Cowboys vs Falcons. QB Matchup was MaJJik vs Kenny O. DT had BHump, while I had all the Niner RBs. If memory serves correctly, I got a stop early and had a stupid CC to AC (DT had the Raiders DBs) to go up 14-7 at half. I think I tried a fg and perhaps also turned it over on 4th down in the 2nd half, but things really just came down to who had the ball last, as Tecmo often does. DT scored a FG to go up 3 late. I returned the kickoff a fair amount, and then it was what we all get hyped for, the end of game Hail Mary JJ attempt. This time MaJJik to AC delivered, AC jumping up from the red zone and landing in the end zone. TD!! MaJJik to AC was MVP. MaJJik was 9/12 for 3 TDs, and AC caught 3 passes all the TDs and 112 yards rcvg Week 2 saw DT suffer late game tecmo hate again, this time vs Invader, where BHump fumbled at the 1 yard line with like 1 min left and down 21-17. So that's 2 tecmo heartbreaking 21-17 losses to start this day for DT. Week 2 also had what looked to be an excellent game between Ted and Stu. Ted overcame a lost fumble and scored 14 points in the 4th to win 14-13. With that Ted's day was essentially over, him going 3-0 with the team that @bruddog drafted for him. Week 3 saw a tight one between Stu and Tick, where Bruddog commented that first one to 6 would win. Well, Tick scored on a nice pass from BJT to Willie Gault in the 2nd quarter, but Stu responded with a FG at the half, and then a 3rd quarter Allen Pinkett TD which he was able to hold up with his CHI DL and DBs infused with KC's LBs I was able to win over Invader thanks to not one but two fumbles that Vader lost, and they were timely. Final, 28-17. Week 4 saw a couple of blowouts and I was sad cuz I was slated to play Ted, and he had already left. My man Jay was on the stream vs Stu, and he got tecmoed pretty bad. Week 5 brought a highly anticipated match between DT and BWagg the XtraLargent one. Twice in the past DT has lost to BWagg on some crazy tecmo shit. The one I remember being a HOU vs BUF match where BWagg scored late with a full on garbage drive. CC, picked play CC, all of the above. I wish there was a recording of that one, lol. There was another one that I don't remember, but I bet you both DT and BWagg could. This one did NOT disappoint. DT worked his way to a 17-7 halftime lead. He had the ball late with the lead. He had gotten 3 fumbles that BWagg had lost. Then Ken O'Brien proved Bruddog's LVP assessment correct. An int led to some hope. And then Wagg got the ball down 14-17 (we've seen this before today...) It all added up to another crazy ending in another 21-17 loss as Andre Reed hauled in a CC Diver from DeBerg FTW. I'll recap the rest in a bit.

    Emmitt Smith was the most well rounded RB in history in my opinion. He could block, catch, and boy could he run. Power, speed, vision and durability... he had it all, thus deservedly in the top RBs of all time and a well earned most yardage ever. He did play on some great teams (and some bad ones) and he had a good line, but that can be said for nearly all the top RBs. I actually think of Emmitt as underrated-- because many people have the opinion that he wasn't great simply b/c he was not flashy!

    We're also donating a free entry ($35) to Tecmo Cleveland to support Midwest Tecmo!!! We wish we could be there in person but we'll be at the Cleveland Classic Arcade Gaming (CCAG) expo the same day. We're true nerds all around - Glad to support the Tecmo community!!!

    TSB trivia game

    A quick search showed there are lots of little "trivia" factoids out on TBorg, but none specific to the TSB game. So let's play. How this works: someone posts with a TSB-related trivia question, and people guess the answers. When someone gets it right, the Asker says, "You got it, you're up," or something to that effect. Then the Answerer becomes the Asker, etc. Might be dumb, might also kill some time as we await the start of the 2017 NFL season. Here's my Question: Other than Wade Wilson and Rich Gannon, how many TSB quarterbacks would eventually start a game for the Vikings? (name them and you get 20 bonus points)

    I'm looking forward to an underwhelming attempt at a repeat. I'm like the 1988 Dodgers. I'm gonna put a bounty on my head. Beat me with the Bengals playing (on either side) and get a $20 bill.

    Just trying to give feedback on player balance. The ratings appear to be random. 63MS for a DB should put them near the top 10 of all DBs. Use http://tecmogeek.com/ for a good reference to see the scaling of ratings in the original ROM.
