  3. 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 also 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, utilizing standard Madison matchup selection. We have the right to approve non-standard formats at our discretion. 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 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. Good luck and Godspeed during this Tecmo Bowl season. View full article

    I just re-entered them. They show up for me. Yours are from the Thunderdome.

    Gentle reminder that is this helps overall seeding, the top finishers at Majors are guaranteed a Top 6 Madison Region seed, and the above are not definitive actual Madison seeds. Love live Tecmo.

  12. The Plaza - Local dive with deep, deep Tecmo Madison roots Cask & Ale - Whiskey & good beer Greenbush Bar - Basement Italian restaurant with amazing pizza, bourbon & beer. Ladies - head to State St. It is a college town. They are everywhere.
  13. Before I answer that, what are you into? Craft beers? Wings? Ladies?
  14. We have potential evidence of one occurrence and holy crap is that specific.
  15. A quote from a staffer: "In 13 tournaments over 12 years, I don't think we've ever had a lurch decision to make." The violations are not hard and fast because there are many, many factors. They'll stay as is.
  16. We should test this assumption since it was on the Tecmo cast, was sent out in an email, on the registration page, and on the rule list at the venue. What other distinction was included in the lurch rule last year?
  17. I have been misled. The lurchfathers have spoken. Even though they said you could never lurch the run, I reserve the right to lurch the sh*t out of Bruddog's Run 2 without penalty.
  18. To be clear, I am waiting for sonofpatbeach's & holzy11's final ruling. Whatever they say is where this is going.
  19. I understand the play situation and you've stated the exact answer. 👊
  20. How is this a grey area? You took a risk and lost. You aren't protected by choice. This is a strat just like anything else.
  21. You could always run away from the potential lurch. If you are calling pass, the opportunity to run towards the tackles very much presents itself. Maybe we should get rid of the LB4 dive and use of LB2/3 vs certain run plays because it is essentially all the same thing. 😁 According to what I have been given, you can lurch runs. We actually discussed this last year too. We added the clarification of making a play on the QB for this reason. Let me see if I can get sonofpatbeach to chime in.
