    Team matchup sheet for new players

    The final team values and rankings I came up with on my sheet were different - I think because the heatmap version you previously posted was not based on the latest revision of the Excel sheet? Either way, I didn't view it as a waste of time and enjoyed playing with various matchups in the latest version of your spreadsheet

    Team matchup sheet for new players

    Yes I did see this - it's what inspired me to make the other sheet so instead of just seeing if a matchup is a 0,1,2, etc you can see how those 0,1,2,etc rank against other matchups. Great job on both the Excel sheet and the heat map btw. Very interesting and helpful to see the WR catch % especially!

    Team matchup sheet for new players

    Attached are two different versions of a file I created called TSB Matchup Matrix (Numbers, PDF) based off of bruddog's team tiers OG 3 Excel file. It shows bruddog's matchup rating for every potential matchup in Tecmo Super Bowl then adds all of the ratings together creating a "power ranking" of all the teams. I then took this aggregate power ranking to further analyze the matchups to see just how much of an advantage one team has over another (excluding player skill). Hopefully, new players and maybe even some long time vets will find it useful deciding how much of an edge they are willing to give up to get a specific team in a matchup.

  4. Tremendous run Louis! Congrats on coming out of a very talented field undefeated. I had a chance to watch some of the stream (which was well done BTW gentleman - loved the "RedZone" style of switching between games). Not only did he play outstanding Tecmo, he called excellent matchups. Well played sir. Well played. Hope to see many of you who were at Tundra Bowl at the Detroit Kumite in March! PS - Congrats to Ryan and Kevin for setting a new world record in NBA Jam! Fun to watch their reactions on the stream (especially late in the game).

    Hey Louis, This link provides some more detail: https://www.tecmocleveland.com/rules From what I understand participants are placed into groups (double elimination) at random then the winners of group play advance to bracket play - looking forward to seeing you guys this weekend! Ryan

    While the total amount of prize money players can win at these tournaments will always be a draw for many, I think we can all agree the love of the game and camaraderie are what matter most. It's events like these that further the dream of many on this site - to continue to make Tecmo Super Bowl a mainstream eSport. Tom has done more to increase the Tecmo scene in Cleveland over the past few months than I did over the span of several years when I hosted tournaments (some of which were entirely dedicated to raising money for charity). He has gotten this event featured in newspapers, articles, podcasts and an upcoming TV appearance while largely doing it on his own. He has has hosted tons of pre-tournament events across the city and used social media to broaden his target audience. To have nearly 50 people signed up at this point is a huge accomplishment and I commend everything he has done. Hopefully you guys can make it as I am sure it will be a great time!
  7. Good luck to everyone today. Wish I could be there but this year's date overlapped with our vacation. I have been fortunate enough to attend a number of these and the Vogts do a fantastic job. Looking forward to checking out the stream later! http://mwtecmo.com/watch/

    Avon Lake, OH - 08/05/17 - Tecmo Cleveland

    I signed up and registered for this tournament a while back, but recently have been fortunate enough to attend few of the "promo events" These have been a lot of fun and the excitement is building for the main event on Saturday, August 5th! During these events, I have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Tom (TecmoCleveland). While he is relatively new to the Tecmo community on this forum, he and a group of friends have been hosting tournaments in their basements for many years. It is always great to come across new players and hear these types of stories. He has great passion for the game we all know and love - and put forth a tremendous amount of time and effort promoting this tournament. There are already over 30 players signed up and confirmed to participate with a little less than a month to go! As several of you know, I hosted (or assisted with) a few tournaments in the Cleveland area several years ago and have participated in many others (Madison, Cincy, Detroit, Buffalo, Columbus, etc.). However, I never promoted mine to the scale Tom has through social media and having events leading up to the main event. He has done a nice job selecting some unique venues for these events on both the east and west side of Cleveland such as Happy Dog, Hofbrauhas, Ohio Beer Garden, 16-Bit Bar, etc. After attending some of these promotional events and getting to know Tom, I am convinced that this will be an awesome event for everyone who can make it! Cleveland is a short drive (less than 4 hours) from these other cities that have hosted Tecmo Tournaments: -1.25 hours from Youngstown, OH -1.5 hours from Salem, OH -1.75 hours from Beaver Falls, PA -2.25 hours from Columbus, OH -3 hours from Buffalo, NY -3.5 hours from Detroit, MI -3.75 hours from Cincinnati, OH Long live Tecmo!

    Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to make the first NEO Tecmo Meetup a success at the Italian Garden in Mantua, OH! We had 8 competitors so we changed the format where everyone played each other once in the regular season then had a double elimination playoff bracket. The format worked really well and with 4 systems setup, we breezed through the regular season quickly and players enjoyed some delicious food from our gracious host Chris H. (Tecmo Ninja). While we may have been few in number, it was one of the most fun and laid back Tecmo events I have ever attended. Each competitor was guaranteed a minimum of 9 games (7 regular season followed by a double elimination playoff bracket). Everyone there was a Tecmo veteran who had attended at least one previous Tecmo tournament and the competition was fierce (there were very few blowouts, most games were extremely competitive and close) Congrats to Timbone who caught fire in bracket play with CIN and ended up taking first place! We also let anyone interested (including a few spectators) get in on super bowl squares for the Championship game for $5 one of The Italian Garden employees ended up winning $50! Will start giving some thought to our next event and also want to carve out time at that event to discuss who wants to join the NEO Tecmo Meetup Groups Fantasy Football League for the inaugural 2017-2018 season! Here were the seedlings after the regular season and who they initially drafted for the playoff double elimination bracket: If a player won, they could keep their team or switch teams with their opponent. Players who inherited a team after losing were given the opportunity to switch to any other undrafted team. Once a team was defeated and a player switched to another team, their inherited or original team was eliminated from play. Seedings follwoing the regular reason (decided by regular season record, if records were even, head to head results affected seeding, then point differential was taken into account if records were taken into account). 1. Francis B. - CHI 2. TK - KC 3. Jimmy N. - RAI 4. Timbone - CIN 5. Chris H. - MIA 6. Ryan M. - PHI 7. Louis B. - RAMS 8. Jon R. - SD Round 1 - No Loss Bracket 1. Francis B. (CHI) def 8.

    Thanks Tom! I just signed up and ready to go for Tecmo Cleveland. Sorry you can't make this meetup but I am sure we will plan another get together soon.

    The preliminary rounds will be standard Madison rules. Coin toss winner selects matchup, coin toss loser selects preferred team, coin toss winner gets P1. Preliminary play is important as the players with the best record will get the best draft choices. However, since the matchups each round are based on record and point differential, players will be unlikely to go 4-0 or 0-4. That being said, each player advances to the bracket portion in a smaller tournament like this with the chance to draft a team. Let's say Bob goes 4-0 and selects the Raiders with the first pick. He wins his first round matchup vs. the 16 seed who drafted the Rams but decides to keep the Raiders. The 16 seed heads to the loser bracket with the Rams and Bob remains in the winners bracket with the Raiders. Bob then loses his second round matchup to someone named Bill who drafted Miami. Bill could keep Miami or swap teams with Bob after the conclusion of the game and take the Raiders giving Bob the Dolphins and heading to the losers bracket since it will be double elimination. In the the loser bracket, Bob defeats another player named Brian with his new team Miami who has the Chiefs and decides to take the Chiefs from Brian. Brian is eliminated after his second loss. Bob advances with the Chiefs to the next game. In short, if you win you can keep the team you drafted or swap teams with your opponent. After your second loss, you are eliminated from bracket play. This is slightly different from the Kumite as brackets were not double elimination and you could not swap teams. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Short answer: No. Players with poor records will get a lower draft choice. Long answer: Players with the best records after the initial rounds will draft first. For example a player who finished 4-0 gets first choice of any team except 49ers, Giants, Bills and Oilers. Then the next best record picks (point differential is used if players have the same records to determine order). So to answer your question, a team that goes 0-4 will pick 15th or 16th as opposed to 1st or 2nd. If a player wins in the bracket round they can elect to keep their team or steal their opponent's team.

    Sure! In round one all matchups are random... round 2 people with 1-0 records and 0-1 play each other... round 3 2-0 play each other 1-1, 0-2, etc. After 4 rounds, everyone makes the bracket but draft position is determined by overall record then point differential. This allows players of similar skill to face off and everyone gets a lot of meaningful games. This will be similar to the Detroit Kumite rules. Let me know of you have any other questions.
