  1. The Road To Tecmo Madison

    I always figured you digged deep. That's pretty impressive to get an example of what you do. I just had gotten the wrong ideal earlier in this conversation.
  2. 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.
  3. The Road To Tecmo Madison

    The problem with this is not everyone goes to 7 or 12 events like I do. Most people play in 1 to 3 events. So you might be ignoring a great performance for a lot of good players because you don't feel that event counts for anything. So that one or two random events might be all the information you have on a player who played well. For example shallebey's performance at the equalizer comes to mind. I think you should keep this road to Tecmo Madison separate from how you decide seeding for Madison. Or just be willing to look at other events since the last tecmo Madison for players that don't play in your official road to Madison events. As you said it's a huge event and you want to do it right. I mean it would be nice if everyone played at least once or twice in the upcoming events. Then what your saying would make a lot of sense. But considering how little a lot of good players can make events I think you should dig a little deeper.

    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.
  5. I like the three man groups and consolation events. I think that eliminates the problem of doing so much to come to Madison to be destroyed 2 to 3 times then go home. Plus there might be less complaints of we are seeding top down as 1 seeds then the bottom/newbies as 3. Will be some interesting 2 seeds but overall I see it producing a very challenging 1st round of games for everyone.

    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.
  7. Just found a way to make it so Thanksgiving holiday is no longer conflicting with this tourney. 99 percent certain now I can make it and so can Louis.
  8. Tournament Abundance

    That's why I said a minimum. I know that some dates are set for a reason. And some dates work better than other dates. For example in Buffalo we had a great date at the last week of April or first of May. Now tecmo Madison is to close and it's not easy finding a new date. It makes you appreciate it when you have a date that works year in and year out for the usual participants at your event.
  9. Tournament Abundance

    It would be nice to have no tournament overlapping in 2019. That's the year I plan to play in every tecmo tourney. Or a bare minimum.
  10. You gotta try the sex panther suit head. Just be careful not to let it drive you wild. If I kept it on any longer I would be in jail.
  11. Against any rookie or new player I will be playing at a disadvantage. Unless you pick a tier 1 team. But if they pick a tier 2 I will use the bottom half of tier 3 or tier 4. If they pick a tier 3 I will use a tier 4 or 5. Finally if they pick a tier 4 I will use a tier 5 team. In fact I will even post what teams I will use. KC wash, den Chi Tb Rai Pitt Phi wash, tb Mia den, wash, tb Cin wash, tb minn jets Det pitt, phx Rams atl Sd, phx, no Wash phx Tb jets Den atl Dal no Pitt cle Phx gb Jets ne Atl sea No ind Ne ind Gb, ind Sea, ind Cle, ind Ind SF
  12. I will be bringing my amazing Technicolor dream pants to the twin cities.
  13. I was thinking something similar with Mario. See who can get the furthest with one life. You could even do it as a team relay. You couldn't use any warp zones. If it was Mario 3 the stages would need to be played in numerical order. it would entice non sporting fans to play.
