      i just had a great conversation with dave and suggested that the top online tecmoer for the year should get a free entry into madison, he agreed that it makes sense so said yes 
      how do we decide whos the online tecmoer of the year? simple - whoever has the most league titles, online tournament wins, and championship game appearances
      each league or tournament win isnt gonna be as much as the next. for example - a hstl title is worth the most reward points, it all just depends 
      GTFO - champion = 2 reward points,  runner up = 1 reward points
      WTF -  champion = 8 reward points , runner up = 4 reward points 
      TTL - champion = 8 reward points, runner up = 4 reward points 
      TTLM - champion = 8 reward points, runner up = 4 reward points
      HSTL - champion = 10 reward points, runner up = 5 reward points
      NTGL - champion = 5 reward points, runner up = 2 reward points
      Tecmo 2k - champion = 8 reward points, runner up = 4 reward points
      tournament reward points  - will be based on how many competitors and level  of the competition. example - this year thunderdome - champion = 10 reward points, runner up = 5 reward points
      Any questions or things that need to be changed like the amount of points each league is worth please let me know

      Mark Clayton Region

      Projected Group Winners

      Group A - Chet H. (holzy11)
      Group B - Sobhi Y. (bestinworld)
      Group C - Matt M. (Ones11fahzu)
      Group D - Joseph N. (nomad)
      Group E - Eric O. (tecmodell42)

      Todd D. (imimmortl)
      Jonathan B. (QB_Browns)

      Best Names

      Jordan W. (Don't Go Chasin Atwaterfalls)
      Dave M. (Balloneous Assault)
      Jason P. (Marc Vlasic Pickle Defense)

      The Clayton Region seems the most predictable in terms of projected group winners which probably means we'll see some upsets. Defending champion Chet is the biggest favorite to make the Elite 8 and it will be interesting to see who can challenge Matt M and Sobhi Y to make the double elim. While former champ Sohbi is considered one of the greatest Tecmo players ever, Matt gets the nod due to his impressive year of tournament play including last year's Madison Final 4 run. Eric O and Erik M are perennial Top 16 players who are capable of making a deep run. Travis R and Joesph N represent some of the Nebraska talent finally making it's way to Madison.

      Mark Duper Region

      Projected Group Winners

      Group H - Luke C.
      Group I - Jon J. (daboy)
      Group J - Jeff B.
      Group K - James T. (skunkerofbestinworld)

      Jon S. (RogerCraig'slist)
      Brett Michael S. (Jesus von Fitzenhopper)
      Gabriel J. (Likesbutts)

      Realistically, I have no idea who will make the Elite 8 from the Duper Region. I went with Luke of his showings in Iowa and Nebraska (only
      loss was to Chet) and with feared Jon (Daboys) J who is potentially due for some damage in his second Madison showing. Jeff B, who made the big Elite 8 run last year in dominating fashion and Midwest Tecmo Tournament organizer Chris V are itching to prove they belong among the elite. Hometown Shunker and Garbage are always a threat to go on run. Matt O was one win away from making Mort one of the best players to never win Madison. The one thing this region lacks is clear favorites. Expect major upsets here but be surprised if someone from the Duper Region wins the tournament.

      Ferrell Edmunds Region

      Projected Group Winners
      Group O - Kyle M. (Regulator088)
      Group P - Francis B. (mort)
      Group Q - Seth B. (Virtuoso)
      Group R - Erik J. (rikfenny)
      Group S - Kevin M. (buzzsaw)
      Group T - Tony O. (AverageTSBPlayer)
      Group U - Troy H. (PrimeTime)

      Elite 8 Favorites
      Kyle M. (Regulator088)
      Francis B. (mort)

      John H. (ButtonSpaz)
      Tom B. (8-bit)
      Ed G. (edisaurusrex)

      Best Names
      Luke L. (DutchHammer)
      Brad A. (Rypien Brawler)
      Patrick D. (Anders to the Top)
      Jordan K. (Showtime Loo)
      Barry K. (Brute Farce)

      Potentially the best player never to win at Madison, Kyle (Regulator) was one win away from fulfilling the 10-0 t-shirt he wore last year and is the clear favorite of the Edmonds region to make the Elite 8 and to win the entire tournament. The other clear favorite in the region is Mort, who has won most every tournament of note not featuring Chet. Which local player can knock one of these guys out of the tourney? Seth B., Erik J., and Troy H. are elite lWisconsin players who play online. Their unique play will throw someone for a loop. Tony O. and his entourage is one of the most intimidating plays in all of Madison. While he might not be favored to win his group, Ed G is certainly capable of ruining any of these player's day.

      Jim Jensen Region

      Projected Group Winners
      Group V - Matt V. (bigmv54)
      Group W - Rico R. (ryanr33fulcher)

      nick t. (The Pecan Sandies)

      Big time tourney player Matt V is the favorite to win the Jensen and he's joined by probably one of the most improved Tecmoers in the last two years, Louis B. Typical favorite and former champion Josh H not only has to battle travelling to his own tournament but also running the mike before every round. If he can get past the distraction monster he is one of Tecmo's elite. Brent B and Derek M are two tapping tournament veterans who play a ton of games and are capable of running with the best. AJ has completely revamped his game from last year and is hungry to prove himself. Speaking of tapping, Kyle F will give Louis all he can handle and has the game to make the Elite 8.

      Thanks to the guys at Tecmomadison.com, especially Tony, for their awesome tourney site that made this breakdown possible.

      Visit the Tourney Thread

      I was a little behind this week due to travelling so I didn't get to announce this year's Madison Tourney. I thought I might have plenty of time but they've already hit capacity. If you want to go however you should still sign up as an alternative given that there will be a number of guys who drop out along the way.

      For those of you unaware, the Tecmo Super Bowl tournament in Madison, WI is annually the largest one of it's kind in the world. Unofficially, it's the Tecmo Championship featuring some of the best console and online players in the US.

      The buzz seems to be coming from the outreach of Facebook plus the possibility of NFL Films showing up to do a documentary. If they aren't, there will be at least one amateur crew there.
      Here is the official release from the tournament's site, tecmomadison.com:

      What: “Tecmo VIII: Muster’s Last Stand”
      When: March 3, 2012
      Where: Logan’s Madtown, 322 W. Johnson Street, Madison, Wisconsin
      Field Size: 128
      Tournament Website: http://tecmomadison.com
      Entry Fee: $25. Includes a tournament t-shirt (size to be selected during website registration)

      How to Sign-Up: If you are already registered with the website, simply access the site and click on “Sign up for Tecmo VIII.” Your login information is that which you provided when you initially registered for the site. If you have forgotten your password, click on the “I forgot my password” link and a new one will be forwarded to your email account.

      If you have not yet registered for the site, you must do so before you can sign-up for Tecmo VIII. To register for the site, access the website and click on the “Register Now” link (top left of screen). Follow the instructions and once you have completed site registration, you will be in a position to sign-up for Tecmo VIII.

      NFL Films’ Potential Involvement: In October, NFL Films contacted Chet and Josh about doing a Tecmo Super Bowl documentary in which the tournament would play a role. The producer envisioned devoting a portion of the piece to chronicling various competitors’ preparation and participation in the tournament. Obviously, this is tremendously exciting news. We nonetheless have to stress that the documentary’s creation is not a sure thing. Please keep that in mind as we move forward, and please refrain from asking us specific documentary-related questions. Given that it is a possible NFL Films project, we probably will not know the answer, and even if we do, we may not be in a position to respond. Thanks guys.

      Tournament Rules & Format: All of this information is available on the tournament website, as are past tournament results, pictures, competitor profiles, and a general tournament history. There is a new wrinkle to the Elite 8 and Final 4 this year, so please check out the “Rules” tab on the website.

      Equipment Needed: This tournament requires at least 16 systems to operate properly. If you can bring an NES, a cartridge, or a television to the tournament, please indicate such during the enrollment process (the website will automatically seek this information when you sign-up). Any help is appreciated.

      Questions: If you have a question potentially applicable to all competitors (rules, tournament format, etc), please post such below. This is the official tournament thread. If you have an individual question that requires our attention, you can reach us at [email protected]

      Final Word: Last year’s tournament had 144 competitors from 20 different states. We expect similar numbers and state diversity this year. Make no mistake: this event has morphed into a national event featuring many of the country’s best players. In short, the unparalleled collection of talent at this tournament demands nothing less than your very best. The Tecmo offseason is officially over, and Brad Muster, recently awoken from hibernation, is none too pleased.
