  1. Until Madison's plan is finalized, this is taking back seat. This was the announcement I was referencing two posts up.
  2. To be clear, I am not hosting this event. I was merely posting it for the organizers who don't post here.
  3. This is amazing. Hahahahah
  4. TECMO SUPER BOWL Tournament Charity Address: 1117 4th Ave, Huntington Tecmo Super Bowl tournament. $6 entry benefiting West Virginia Alzheimer’s Association Sign ups start 12 noon 5 pm Tournament starts 5 pm Rules for tournament – Only Banned player is Bo Jackson. LOL -davefmurray Team Selection & Coin Toss: A manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winner will choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams). The coin-flip loser then selects either (a) one of the two teams or (b) his preferred controller. If the coin-flip loser selects his preferred controller, the coin-flip winner selects a team first. “One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. You can access your “change” screen (screen where you check player conditions and make substitutions) only twice per half. This helps speed up the games. WR/TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. No Ties/Overtime: No game can end in a tie. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. If no one scores in the first OT, a new game will begin and the first competitor to score will be declared the winner. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in each OT period, the kicking team in the first OT will be the receiving team in the new game (i.e. the second OT). Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was noncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. Tournament Disputes: The referees decisions are final, just like in a real game. They might make the wrong call, it is not up for debate, however. Controllers: Tournament competitors are not allowed to bring their own controller to use in games. Tournament organizers will coordinate obtaining equipment for the competition.
  5. Update #2 Tecmo XIII will feature a small format tweak. Top 2 seeds in the opening round will get a bye. As always, our goal is to ensure the best Tecmo experience for all of our competitors. To that end, we are going to increase the number of TVs and may reduce the overall size of the tournament. This will reduce group play times from 5 hours to (hopefully) 3 hours, meaning less time spent waiting for the good stuff to start. Additionally, this ratchets up the pressure on our top players: instead of facing a nervous first-time competitor who may not know how good their opponent is, our top players start with a giant target on their back facing an opponent with a confidence boosting win already banked. As the tournament increases in size again we hope to make some more adjustments to how the tournament is run to keep things moving and give more competitors a shot at the throne. Having the seeding setup this way leads us to the next major addition to the Tecmo Madison Championship as a whole.... QUALIFIERS! Starting with TecmoXIII, we will have official qualifier tournaments. Qualifiers are hand picked tournaments that will fall under the Tecmo Madison Championship umbrella. Winners of a qualifier will be given free entry into Tecmo Madison, a travel stipend ($$$) to help get them to the tournament, one guaranteed stream game, AND an automatic first round bye. Yea, holy crap is right. For now, we have one exclusive qualifier: Tundra Bowl IV. Qualifiers must adhere to standard Madison rules and be held to a strict ethical code. @RetroNathan exemplifies what we are looking for in a TMQ leader. For TecmoXIV, we hope to add two more qualifiers in addition to the Tundra Bowl. Lastly, getting your tournament results submitted to the player database will be far easier. We will send your a formatted spreadsheet, you fill it out + send it back, and we import it. Viola. It is a piece of cake. **For those with upcoming tournaments, the required player info is as follows: First Name, Last Name, Email Address & Zip Code. If you do not have this information, your results will not be entered. Yours in Tecmo, -davefmurray
  6. Yes, there is an official ROM every year.

  8. I'm gonna hit up some Tecmoers in the region on my email list at DT's request. It is roughly 1.5k people. If they aren't a T-Borg member, how do they sign-up?
  9. I don't usually trust stadium food for a good time. Is this place legit?
