  1. An attempt to summarize some of the ideas proposed in the first congressional congress of Cascadia FUCKING Tecmo yesterday on Discord: LONG-TERM LEAGUE FORMAT IDEAS: "1960 Dynasty Mode" --- We each control one franchise; we draft our players from 1960 NFL/AFL rosters; we play 10-game regular season w/ 2-round playoffs (~7 hour tourney "season"); before the playoffs begin we roll for the next season's stat gains (w/ kamp as Gains Guru); during the post-tourney "offseason," via the league website we draft rookies, make trades, acquire free agents, etc.; basic overall format similar to NTF (http://tecmo.us/ntf/main/main.php) UP FOR REVISION: Whether or not we mix the AFL/NFL players and play inter-conference games (which NFL did not do until 1970, other than the Super Bowls beginning 1966). "1977 Full-Beef NFL SImulation Mode" --- We each control 2-5 franchises, starting around 1977, w/ each team consisting of its historical NFL roster, and player ratings aligned to each player's actual performance from that season; we play full schedules, with each "season" being completed over the course of multiple league sessions (unknown length of each tourney session). other proposals??? SHORT-TERM LEAGUE FORMAT IDEAS: "OG TSB Salary Cap" --- We draft players from the original TSB using a salary cap spreadsheet... play a season. "OG TSB Team Draft" --- We do a draft for all of the original TSB teams, then roll to see which team we control... play a season. other proposals??? CALENDAR SCHEDULING IDEAS: We are all in basic agreement that we don't want to play (or should severely limit, at the least) any seasons/sessions during real football season. Also, rules and procedures will be put in place to account for owner absences, voting to re-schedule any seasons/sessions, etc. "JANUARY TO JUNE" --- We play one season/session on the 3rd Saturday of each month from January to June. other proposals??? All of the above proposals are in the draft stage... feel free to propose new ideas or revisions to the above. Discord chat is probably the best way right now, but here works as well.
  2. @kamphuna8 @Tick @DT. (and... @XtraLargent?) Please vote on what the salary cap should be: $85, $100, or $115? (If someone thinks the choices should be different, by all means make your case... I haven't thought it out in absolute detail.) When you look at the salary cap spreadsheet (linked at bottom of first post in this thread), the far right column shows the sum of all the values for each row... so as you can see, $85 gets you a bit below middling, $100 would be about the middle, and $115 allows you a few luxury purchases. Some notes about the spreadsheet and rosters: For this tournament, you will not be allowed to re-align your defensive players or OL... they must stay in their OG alignments. QB/RB/WR/TE of course can be moved around, so long as they follow standard game rules for rushing the ball, etc. And not sure what to do with kickers and punters, since they are not on the spreadsheet... perhaps give everyone a 50-kicker and punter? Suggestions accepted... "WR" includes TEs. Injuries may or may not be a part of this tournament... I have to look into the possibility. There will not be carryover condition changes, as dynastyphile does not support it (I think).
  3. ***COMMUNIQUE OF THE REVOLUTIONARILY HIGH COMMAND #1*** Diatribes, Declarations… and a few Updates My brothers, the Tecmo Revolution… is HERE. You will not be able to stay home, brother. You will not be able to plug in via the internet, connect virtually to an opponent, and feel like you’ve “done good battle.” The Tecmo Revolution will not be sponsored by tecmobowl.org. The Revolution will not be hosted in the darkest corner of your local sports bar. The Revolution will not be live-streamed, and sure as shit, brother, you should know RIGHT NOW that the Revolution will not be played on ANYTHING less than the finest cathode ray tubes and OEM equipment. The Tecmo Revolution will not be plotted on a spreadsheet or probability table, for the Tecmo Revolution, my brothers, is undeniably and irrevocably what it is and always has been: THE TRUTH. The Revolution aint no noob run-around, mashing buttons or back-and-B’ing….. the Revolution will be LIVE, aint no place for that bullshit! My brothers, the Tecmo Revolution will NOT be televised, for the Tecmo Revolution… is HERE. · ROLL CALL: White Tick, Kamphuna, DT and MadManyo… all we got, all we need. Last week, e-mails were sent out to several prospective CFT-members in northern Cascadia, but none of them have replied with even a “no thanks” so it must be assumed they are LOST in the hot mazes… fuck em, the Revolution rolls on. Next I will focus my recruiting on the grimy nooks and crannies of backwater Lewis County… I know they’re out there, I just got to face the arduous task and dig em out. · CFT #1 on March 11: Count on it, hell or high water. Tourney will start at either 3 or 3:30pm, and shouldn’t go too deep into the evening. In Centralia, but if any of you want me to bring it up north I got no problem with that. We are going to do the salary cap idea for OG TSB… next week I’ll post the procedures for drafting and submitting your team, as well as determine the salary cap (90? 100? suggestions requested). We will play a season, upload our game stats to dynastyphile, give glory to the gods, the usual… but also, and in my mind more importantly, get some LIVE input (and voting) on the direction of the CFT from this point forward. Bring all your wildest ideas to the table. On my end, I will draft a League Constitution, and we can haGGle out or ratify the ideas therein, as necessary. The BASE CADRE will be formalized and mobilized as we grease these burgeoning wheels of Tecmo Revolution. · <OFFICIAL> ANNOUNCEMENT: The April 1 PNWTC6 will be the FINAL non-CFT tournament conducted by @gomanyo360… all future tournaments involving him in a coordinator capacity will be run under the CFT flag, and no other…… CASCADIA FUCKING TECMO: stomp terra, and death to the robotz.
  4. IN hopefully that Enforcer poster will be up for grabs for most INTs in a game or something
  5. been a few weeks now but gottdam here I AM! still PISSED OFF for greatness! still MAD as phuq! all GLORY to the TECMO GODS! pigs and giGGs and all that illy shit, by gods i will deliver for them a GLORIOUZ VICTORY in the next one!!! &glrw
  6. I ask anyone, anyone at all that sees this..... What should we name this league? I just can't come up with anything more plain jane than PNWTL (Pacific Northwest Tecmo League). Name should probably represent something with geographical location and the fact it is a league.... but maybe that's my logic choking out my creativity, accepting all suGGestions!
  7. ok thank you, i will attempt to contact them and ask. if anyone in the league wants to volunteer to be the website guy, it would unlock a world of potential for us. i have some limited experience patching the old NTF site together, albeit with 100% help from kamphuna, and whereas i find myself capable of applying logic and instinct to a wide panoply of worldy fields, i have found code and databases and computers in general to be my spiritual kryptonite (except excel, i'm a wizard on excel, and only because of my participation in tecmo league drafts). at the very least, a website where we can upload game stats and conduct drafts is what we are looking for, but bells and whistles like the newer WTF sites are always neat as well, but a message board forum could serve our misc. purposes there perhaps. WEEKLY UPDATES: GAME RECORDS: we should be able to record every league game via split-out capture cards (nsv files not possible), e.g. so that highlight videos could be produced in the interim between seasons..... also, as I believe I've mentioned before, I have created some word and excel docs which will enable us to print out fully loaded boxscores for each game with the press of a few buttons..... you can take home a booklet with your stats for each season. LEAGUE FORUM: a seperate forum is in the works, at which time I will begin organizing the league more concretely, soliciting ideas, conducting votes, etc. PLAYER RECRUITMENT: today I will begin to recruit a few more guys, as well as publicly advertise locally here in lewis county.... basically looking for anyone who can commit to coming together for a "tecmo night" one saturday every two months, and conduct offseason tasks in the interim (drafts, trades, etc.).... we don't need to rush to fill the league, ideally we want the right guys in the beginning, and if that takes time, then all the better. If an owner is unable to make it on a given saturday, we should be able to find someone to play his season for him (top of the waiting list, eg)..... and we can make rules whereby if an owner misses a few saturdays in a given time frame, then we replace him from top of the waiting list. LEAGUE START GOALS: my goal is to get everything surrounding the league nailed down by the end of February... including owners, players, website, forum, rules, format, etc..... and frankly that is very ambitious and probably not possibile, but I will do my best..... at the very least, on March 11, we can do the OG-TSB salary cap idea, test out the technologies, banter league ideas, vote, etc...... if not begin a full-fledged 1970/1980 dynasty league, which will take a bit more time to set-up initially.
  8. hey @kamphuna8 will we be able to re-purpose the NTF website for this league?
  9. well i hope you guys are doing things way cooler than playing tecmo one day a month, like fighting for the resistance or taking a walk in the park or something..... so what I am going to do instead is cancel the Mayhem7 tournament on March 11, and push PNWTL (we need a new name, really) S1 to March 11 instead....... Mayhem7 will happen at some spontaneous juncture within the next few years, and at a spontaneous place (4+ people + mayhem) of no one's choosing, we shall see....... but this PNWTL idea will never die until I do, and in fact I am so committed to this league (including big $) that I will provisionally say right now that April 1 PNWTC6 will be my last big "open" tournament, and I am going to focus on this league idea instead...... I will be open to selling some of my equipment and TVs that day if anyone is interested. as for PNWTL, we got 4 guys right now...... we need 4 more, but can start with 2 more for a total of 6..... at some point I will start recruiting guys, but for now anyone can sign up by just posting in this thread...... again, once we got enough I will create a forum either here or elsewhere so we can get this thing going and set for Season 1..... and again, my vision for the future of this league is something like play a season every two months or so (6-7 hours per season, by my calculations), and after S1 we can start doing things like play certain seasons of NFL (start in 1970?), draft players, run it like a WTF-style league (or not), whatever the league decides. If people are centrally located, for example around Seattle, then I can travel up there for some or all seasons, if accomodations and your wifeys allow. MAHALO!
  10. need 4 more people still, if league not filled by Friday, Feb. 3 I will cancel this event
  11. in the heat of the action today dont forget to pick up a flyer for the rest of this season's tecmo tournaments:
  12. like everybody else I forgot about this in the heat of preparing for the P-Town Throwdown, but....... REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. I will consider @DT. registered and give him SEA...... and also register @kamphuna8 and @Tick, however I recall Tick likes DAL too, so unless I'm wrong in that memory whichever of the two posts their preferred team first may have it, but for now DAL is set aside for one of them. I am calling KC. That leaves 4 spots open and I will be handing out flyers today in Portland, so.... whoever else wants a piece of this, you better jump in soon, or else suffer the Regrets later. To date, I have understated how all-in I am for this league, and frankly feel no need to hype it much at all...... on the contrary, i gotta trust the true hardcore gentleman of tecmo in our region will recognize this for what it is, and most especially, what it can become...... which in my take is nothing less than the apogee of tecmo-sport as we know it, and the vanguard and heartbeat of a strong and thriving tecmo scene here in the PNW.
