I dont know if i can rank them 1 -13. Here are some quick comments


 


ATL- Interesting balanced approach but the TB OL is going to ruin the most important part of his offense with most of the DL's blowing it up consitently Fulcher can be run targeted with bottom runs as the only defender


 


DEN- PRetty solid team from louis but the DEN db's feel like a waste since they don't to much to stop passing attacks. Money probably would have been better spent getting the underpriced KC RB's.


 


CLE- My team. A nearly impossible offense to stop in the right hands. PIT OL gives you just enough blocking at the right places plus a beastly return game with okoye. RAI/DL give you a bargain defense. Tough to stop the elite passing attacks but can get the job done vs the run if you can tap.


 


 


 


DEN- Bo with no qb or WR's. Hopefully this person can tap or bo will be might easy to shut down. ATL OL might also cause problems with DL's busting in. Defense is solid. 


 


GB- THe ultimate offense team. Most teams will be hard pressed to stop the original rom SF offense. However he's unlikely to get any stops with the colts defense essentially. But this is a better gamble than going all defense i think. 


 


HOU- Qb eagles is the sucker bet of this chart. You can't pair him with anything useful so people will sit on pass all day. With super slow rb's and wr's people can just key on randall. 


 


IND- Balanced team by Derek. Having mayhew at DB 2 might cause some problems but this team is put together well. Elways paired with a good running game and speedy wrs. WAS DB's at least gives him a chance to get stops with the speedy green for run defense and maywhew for pass. 


 


NO- Pretty balanced team. Feel they could have gotten better options at RB and QB.And the NE DB's suffer with their best guy at DB2. 


 


NYG- one of my least favorite teams as they basically have no stars. Typically that doesnt work in tecmo


 


PHI- A good attempt at a defensive team with some offense. 


 


PIT- basically a clone of NYG but at least the NYG lb's gives you some stars. But SEA DBs...yuck


 


SD- Pairing CLE QB with CHI wr's is criminal it basically wastes all that money you spend for QB browns. Good D with the lott/waymer combo


 


SF- Another odd combo overspend for a 44pc qb to pair with SF wr's. DL is pretty much a waste when your dbs are indy...

If I had to choose...
 

  1. IND - Elway, Okoye, speedster WRs, Green/Mayhew. Solid.
  2. ATL - Aikman, Thermal, WRs, Haddix
  3. BUF - Simms, CCs, man LB, man DB
  4. DEN - Bo, LT, somewhat ok DBs
  5. CLE - DeBerg, Okoye, Ellard and Flipper, but lacking D
  6. GB - Joe Montana to Gary Clark/Ricky Sanders, worst D imaginable, extreme version of CLE
  7. PHI - Tolliver, Okoye, good LBs, good DBs. Tolliver is INT scary though
  8. SF - Aikman, Rice, DT and the KC LBs.
  9. PIT - Boomer, Okoye, WRs, LT.
  10. HOU - Eagles, LT
  11. NYG - Serviceable O, subpar D.
  12. SD - Bernie, Okoye, Lott. No one to throw to
  13. NO - Majik, balanced RB/WR, Lippett.
     

Are players locked in their original rom position? I operated under that assumption. Being able to move say Lippett to DB3 changes a lot.

Disclosure on money raised and how it was allocated:


Registration:      $364 (13 players x $28/person)

post-8019-0-89716700-1423879613.jpg


 


We will alter the format slightly with 13 players so everyone can get more games in:


13 players will be broken down into 3 pool player groups / divisions after the tap off portion for seeding (2 groups of 4 and 1 group of 5)


Every effort will be made to not group players in pools that came together


Following pool play, the top 6 players will enter a double elimination bracket - winner receives $120 and Tier I trophy


The next 7 players will compete in a double elimination bracket - winner receives $60 and Tier II trophy


 


Pool play and the double elimination brackets should move quickly since we will have at least 6 NES systems running simultaneously.  


This will ensure everyone who attends will play 3 pool play games and at least 2 tournament games.


 


Don't forget every participant receives the following from our generous sponsor Stone Age Gamer (www.stoneagegamer.com) just for participating!


·         Stone Age Gamer Canvas Bag (Lime Green)


¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Stone Age Gamer T-shirt (Black) [s ‚Äď 2XL Sizes Available]


·         $25 Gift Card to StoneAgeGamer.com


·         Unopened Pack of Topps 1987 Foot Cards


·         Random Gaming Related Plush Doll


·         2 Tecmo Bowl NES Controller Overlays


·         BitBox NES Game Case with Tecmo Bowl insert


·         Stone Age Gamer Sticker


·         Stone Age Gamer Magnet


 


We will also have a drawing after the Tap Off portion for an amazing door prize:


A custom EverDrive-N8 Deluxe Edition in turf green with a white wash board stripe. It will also have a custom front and back label.

Anyone have the results summary for all players? And the team with indy db's won? That's pretty amazing. 

 

Everyone had a great time!  Thanks again to our sponsor Stone Age Gamer for having all the equipment setup when we arrived (7 NES systems with the tap off ROM and custom team ROM installed).  The tournament started at 12pm, we took a 45 minute break from 1:30-2:15 for lunch and finished by 5:30pm.

 

Attached are the results from pool play.  The brackets were all on paper (I don't have the electronic results) but were structured as the highest heed playing the lowest seed.  7/13 players had records of 3-0 or 2-1 and were placed into the Tier I bracket.  The remaining players were placed into the Tier II bracket.

 

In the tier I bracket 1st seed had a bye in the first round, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6. 4 vs 5

In the tier II bracket 8 vs 13, 9 vs 12, 10 vs 11

 

Jim was on fire all day - his Colts DBs were definitely playing above their stats!  

 

Thanks again to everyone who came out - a day of Tecmo is always a good day :)
