  1. The Road To Tecmo Madison

    Just curious why you think there are too many? Is there something specific? Have 24 players Use basic rules Submit your scores Have a seeded playoff These cover a significant amount (90%+?) of all tournaments posted here.
  2. 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

  4. TITLE CHANGE - I will now be posting what I am listening to on Fridays at work or when being awesome. I encourage you to do the same. I'm always curious to know what everyone listens to. Hurricane55 is jamming Jay-Z. TDO is probably listening to Boy George. What about the rest of you? I've been cranking Young Widows, Young Widows – Old Wounds , and Thrice, Thrice – The Artist In The Ambulance , today.
  5. It is possible. Exactly this.
  6. Tiebreakers: Bracket seeds are determined by record and then point differential. If at the end of the round there is a two-way tie, a deathmatch will be played. If a three-way tie, a 3-man single elimination tourney will be played, where the top seed of the group gets a bye round.
  7. Tundra Bowl has had a consolation for a few years. Kudos to them for blazing the trail.
  8. Group of 3 round robin = 2 opening games per. The announcement on tiebreakers will be this week. I'll add another TBD disclaimer. Tiebreakers should be the least of your worries. Shoot for the moon, not the dirt floor!
  9. Nay. Every single person in attendance was amazed he was still standing. Every stream viewer assumed he never played before and got to the finals on pure RNG luck.
  10. Opening bracket is single elimination. Final bracket stage TBD.
  11. FORMAT: 4 Regions, 22 groups per Region, 3 players per group. Round Robin opening rounds. Round 2 will have a Gold bracket, Silver bracket, and Bronze bracket, each region producing 22 Gold players, 22 Silver players, 22 Bronze players. Gold Bracket competes for the cash prize and Tecmo immortality. The Silver & Bronze brackets compete for consolation prizes. Opening bracket is single elimination. Final bracket stage TBD. Tiebreakers TBD. In short, everyone makes the second round and keeps playing.

    We all know Mort is the father.
  16. Hey, man! This will be the second NBA Jam championships! We are working on setting up some online play via server very soon! I'll PM once it is ready!
  17. I've been working on a player/tournament manager for Tecmo tournaments for awhile. Last year, was v1 and I learned a lot. This year v2 will be in use. Having you all add players and submit results will be a piece of cake. If you have a WordPress site, you can install it and run your own as well. He is a quick snippet of the player manager tool.
  18. Classic Tailback Highlights

    I could watch Bo all day man. That dude was such a freak of nature. My son doesn't get it at all. He just sees me working on Madison stuff and thinks Bo is cool. He told a friend at church recently that I am super rich because I have tons of Bo Jackson cards. 😂😂
  19. Classic Tailback Highlights

    Dude, my 5yo asked to watch Bo Jackson just now. I search "Bo Jackson highlights" in Youtube search and your Auburn video was the first video with like 60k views! Dang son! 2.2k subs? Nice job!

    I would honestly love to see Buck do this live. He is constantly trying to re-explain himself because nearly all of us misconstrue his tone all the time. "No, dumb ass. That is not what I said." would be his tagline. I would definitely watch this. 💯
  22. You MUST participate in the #TecmoXIV raffle. Why, you ask? THIS IS WHY! I have $700 worth of reasons right here.
