    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    We are working on some new, awesome extensions for Tecmo and Tecmo Madison. We are going to start a tournament series, including qualifiers and a last chance event, that leads up and builds to Tecmo Madison -- The Road To Tecmo Madison.

     

    Overall, there will be 5 tournaments - 3 qualifiers that will be coined "Majors", 1 Last Chance event and the main event, Tecmo Madison.

     

    Each of the majors will contribute to a new point and seeding system for Tecmo tournaments. Players who finish in the top 4 of each major will get a guaranteed Top 6 region seed at Madison. Major winners will get an even better seeding, with preferred placement into regions.

     

    The points system will be assigned to all tournaments that adhere to a few standard rules and formats. Those are: They must use the basic rules from Tecmo Madison (http://tecmomadison.com/rules), they must have more than 24 people, they must submit the scores to TecmoMadison.com using the proper format, and the final portion of the tournament must be a seeded bracket, single or double elimination.

     

    The points system is as follows:

    1st  25
    2nd  18
    3rd  15
    4th  12
    5th  10
    6th  8
    7th  6
    8th  4
    9th  2
    10th  1

     

    Once your tournament has been posted on TecmoBowl.org and pinned, the Tecmo Madison committee will read through and reach out to let you know if your tournament will be part of The Road To Tecmo Madison.

     

    We will announce all the tournament majors in the coming weeks here on TecmoBowl.org.

     

    Players: We will keep track of your points and they will be posted on your TecmoMadison.com profile as we build them out. More on this later.

    Organizers: There will be further benefits to being part of the series and we will make a separate post laying out that information for you.

     

    Good luck and godspeed during this Tecmo Bowl season.

    Being a part of The Road To Madison, not only contributes to the new TSB tournament circuit and its point system, but it also affords your tournament the following marketing efforts to help your tournament fill its seats and grow.

     

    • Regional Email blasts to neighboring states/regions.
    • Regional Facebook posts via Official TSB Page

    We have reached out to the initial tournaments we want to join. If you would like your tournament to be considered, please message us. The deadline to be considered for The Road To Madison will be November 1st.

     

    Initially, we will choose one tournament per month from May to February each year to include as part of this circuit. During certain times, there may be two tournaments separated regionally and we will reach to a second tournament if we'd like to include it. Bear in mind, these can and will change each year.

     

    For now, here are your 2017-18 majors!

     

    Tundra Bowl V - Green Bay, WI - 01/27/18 - @RetroNathan

    I'm not saying it won't, just that I don't plan on doing it myself. If anyone that has the equipment and know-how to do it is more than welcome to.

    Beef Juice, if your venue has greater than 1MB upload speed internet... I can do it.

     

    Cool I'll keep you posted on what I find out.

    Already got too many requirements IMO. Plus it's a lot of work running an event.  Having someone else taking care of video will make it run better.

     

    On a related note for streaming you might want to see if anyone can bring a mobile hotspot.  If I still had one I would bring it to let you stream off it.

    Just curious why you think there are too many? Is there something specific?

    • Have 24 players
    • Use basic rules
    • Submit your scores
    • Have a seeded playoff

    These cover a significant amount (90%+?) of all tournaments posted here.
