  1. SEGATHON this Satuday

    This was a great time. The stream was probably a little underwhelming but overall the competition was great.
  2. SEGATHON this Satuday

    I somehow received Vlad Putin as my guy - which means I roll shirtless on a horse to Segathon this year. I should also mention now that I have never played NHL on Genesis - my friends from birth through Saturday all rolled NES/SNES, no Sega until Dreamcast in college.
  3. Green Bay, WI - 02/23/2018 - King of Tecmo

    Make sure you grab a pic of Sonic Fox in his hat for posterity (I assume that your guy is Evo 2016 Mortal Kombat XL Champ Sonic Fox ).
  4. The Road To Tecmo Madison

    That 4-6 weeks is an understatement Two points here which applies to everyone who considers coming to Madison: #1 The idea that we don't dig deeper on players just isn't true. We take the available information and decide what information is applicable to that player and the tournament generally, which leads us to point #2 #2 The Equalizer as a tournament had an interesting format with several stated goals that Tom potentially met (he would be the best judge of that). The player referred to above started in a group with 3 other players who are bottom seeds in groups at Madison, I do not know what his record was there because...he was able to take Flo's place because flo left early. This adds another layer of complexity to analyzing this particular player's tournament experience and play. The Road to Madison serves two very different yet equally important purposes: First, it gives some added juice to some tournaments who already stand on their own and maybe exposes some of their players to the possibility of heading to Madison for a first time - those players then have a knowable record of games against known competition in a standard setting. Second, it actually simplifies the seeding at the middle tier of players by giving those players common games against like opponents. I can compare two players who happened to have played two or more of mort, Reg, Gats, Flo, Lou, the gamer, noonan, etc instead of having to guess at potential results. Those 4-6 weeks are intense and involve many spreadsheets, many hours just sitting and thinking about players, and trying my best to keep the tournament interesting and fair (and to screw over @Rod Woodson somehow), this allows me to reduce that time just a little bit. And if no one goes to these tournaments other than the regular players, no biggie, I've had to seed tournaments on less information and Madison has plenty of historical information to give me a good start.
  5. Everyone, I like the enthusiasm in November for an April tournament! This is good, just don't burn out before then. And remember, it is my job to figure out all the extra stuff that surrounds the format and how best to meet two hugely important goals: 1. Get this massive tournament done in 1 day 2. Maintain some semblance of fairness and integrity for all the participants This is so the guy who travels on a 5 hour flight and the guy who drives 10 minutes from Middleton both have a great experience and aren't walking out unhappy with the tournament experience (other than the general unhappiness that will occur to the 200+ people who don't win the thing) For whatever psychotic reason, I really do love creating, seeding, and organizing tournaments, so I'll do my thing behind the scenes, Dave will make sure it fits with the vision of a kickass tournament, and we can all go from there.
  6. Matt and I were amazed that you were still standing
  7. I don't think Reg's liver could last that long.
  8. There will definitely be players - the 2v2 last year exceeded our expectations. I would imagine the 1v1 will have a good amount of players as well.
  9. Des Moines, IA - 11/11/2017 - Iowa Tecmo 4

    I watch the results for all the tournaments - the official qualifiers have some added bonuses and stuff, but I take into account games played in tournaments between known players. If there is a coin flip between two guys for a specific seed in a region, I look at recent results, then potential head to head results, and historical results from previous tournaments. Like I said, just don't lose to guys you should beat

    As is my now standard (semi-joking) mantra : The eyes of the world and the Tecmo Madison seeding committee are upon you. Play well, have fun, lose to the guys you're supposed to lose to, beat the guys you are supposed to beat, and above all things make my life as easy as possible when organizing groups for In The Ware Tonight.
  11. This isn't Nam @Beef Juice there are rules.
  12. Group results, draft order, single elim position, and all the change outs would be nice to see.
  13. I fully support this initiative and wish to learn more via newsletter if available.
  14. Interesting spread of players among the groups, some good quality from the area.

    Wow, I guess you can never go to Kearney
