The preliminary's sound very important in this kind of tournament since it nets you an advantage in the main tournament play.  During preliminary's are the matchups/teams decided by the usual coin toss.  Winner of toss names matchup, loser of toss picks team or player 1?

 

Do all prelims players advance to the main tournament even if they go 0-4?

 

For the main tournament, are you saying that the best record player gets to pick a team first and can take that team through the entire bracket if he wants?

For example let's say "Bob" gets best record.  He picks Eagles.  He uses Eagles in every matchup he feels they will win.  Only time he does not use them is when he plays "Jim" who has raiders.  "Bob" opts to take the raiders that round and its allowed since he has a better record than Jim.

 

I have never followed or watched the Kumite so if I am misinterpreting your description, please let me know.

The preliminary rounds will be standard Madison rules. Coin toss winner selects matchup, coin toss loser selects preferred team, coin toss winner gets P1.

 

Preliminary play is important as the players with the best record will get the best draft choices.  However, since the matchups each round are based on record and point differential, players will be unlikely to go 4-0 or 0-4. That being said, each player advances to the bracket portion in a smaller tournament like this with the chance to draft a team.  

 

Let's say Bob goes 4-0 and selects the Raiders with the first pick. He wins his first round matchup vs. the 16 seed who drafted the Rams but decides to keep the Raiders.  The 16 seed heads to the loser bracket with the Rams and Bob remains in the winners bracket with the Raiders.  Bob then loses his second round matchup to someone named Bill who drafted Miami. Bill could keep Miami or swap teams with Bob after the conclusion of the game and take the Raiders giving Bob the Dolphins and heading to the losers bracket since it will be double elimination. In the the loser bracket, Bob defeats another player named Brian with his new team Miami who has the Chiefs and decides to take the Chiefs from Brian.  Brian is eliminated after his second loss. Bob advances with the Chiefs to the next game.

 

In short, if you win you can keep the team you drafted or swap teams with your opponent. After your second loss, you are eliminated from bracket play.  This is slightly different from the Kumite as brackets were not double elimination and you could not swap teams.  Let me know if you have any other questions!

So it turns out I won't be able to make it this weekend on May 6th....despite it being my birthday we now have two First Communions to go to for nieces on both sides of the family and the wife said I am not to be excused! That being said - I'm glad to try to meet up again before Tecmo Cleveland in June or July if you guys want to go for it. I'm sorry for the late notice/cancellation - I've been in Fort Myers with the family on vacation for the last 2 weeks and we just got back to a heap of mail with the invites in them yesterday.

 

Also here's a promo for Tecmo Cleveland - 10% off - just for you guys - use promo code: "NortheastOhio" - this will get you 10% off registration - sorry again I won't make it this weekend. I put a cap on it to 16 uses so the first 16 guys will get 10% registration! 

 

Sorry again, I've been out of pocket and didn't get the invites until we just got back. Thanks. Tom

Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to make the first NEO Tecmo Meetup a success at the Italian Garden in Mantua, OH!

We had 8 competitors so we changed the format where everyone played each other once in the regular season then had a double elimination playoff bracket. The format worked really well and with 4 systems setup, we breezed through the regular season quickly and players enjoyed some delicious food from our gracious host Chris H. (Tecmo Ninja).

 

While we may have been few in number, it was one of the most fun and laid back Tecmo events I have ever attended. Each competitor was guaranteed a minimum of 9 games (7 regular season followed by a double elimination playoff bracket).  Everyone there was a Tecmo veteran who had attended at least one previous Tecmo tournament and the competition was fierce (there were very few blowouts, most games were extremely competitive and close)

 

Congrats to Timbone who caught fire in bracket play with CIN and ended up taking first place!

 

We also let anyone interested (including a few spectators) get in on super bowl squares for the Championship game for $5 one of The Italian Garden employees ended up winning $50!

 

Will start giving some thought to our next event and also want to carve out time at that event to discuss who wants to join the NEO Tecmo Meetup Groups Fantasy Football League for the inaugural 2017-2018 season!

 

Here were the seedlings after the regular season and who they initially drafted for the playoff double elimination bracket:

If a player won, they could keep their team or switch teams with their opponent.

Players who inherited a team after losing were given the opportunity to switch to any other undrafted team.

Once a team was defeated and a player switched to another team, their inherited or original team was eliminated from play.

 

Seedings follwoing the regular reason (decided by regular season record, if records were even, head to head results affected seeding, then point differential was taken into account if records were taken into account).

1. Francis B. - CHI 

2. TK - KC

3. Jimmy N. - RAI 

4. Timbone - CIN 

5. Chris H.  - MIA

6. Ryan M. - PHI 

7. Louis B. - RAMS

8. Jon R. - SD

 

Round 1 - No Loss Bracket

6. Ryan M. Def 3. Jimmy N. (RAI) - Ryan stole RAI, Jimmy took PHI

      PNW HONBASHO 1 - Behind the Wooden Shed
      Bleachers Pub
      8560 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103
      10 am Saturday Jan 26th
      $20 Rookie Entry Fee, $30 Veteran Entry Fee

       
      BEAST
       
      For the latest and greatest Tecmo Tournament, we will be drawing from the ancient tradition of SUMO. This makes a lot of sense because
       
      1) Tecmo also originated in Japan
      2) When players are grappling in Tecmo, it looks a hell of a lot like Sumo wrestling
      3) There are a lot of beefy competitors in our Cascadia Contingent. I'm looking at you @XtraLargent
      4) @kamphuna8 is a big fan of the sport
      5) It provides us with an excuse to incorporate words like Yokozuna, banzuke, and kachi-kochi
       

       
      So for the Honbasho which just means major tournament, we will first determine a pre-tournament ranking, which will be set by past results. The ranking will determine a great deal of the schedule, aka the Banzuke.
       
      The first division is the San'yaku. It will be comprised of the four most recent Champions. The San'yaku for this tournament will be:
       
      Kamphuna @kamphuna8 The most recent Portland and most recent CFT Season Champion
      Ptitteri @ptitteriThe most recent Seattle Champion
      QB Fairfield @fairfensheeding CFT 2 Champion
      Vader @invader_star64 Portland 2016 Champion
       
      If one of those guys can't make it, @gripsmokewill join their ranks for having somewhat recently won a very competitive Manyo Mayhem tourney. Next up is me @DT. for having won the previous Mayhem If Peter aka @moonwalk somehow made an appearance, he would supersede us both as Seattle 2015 title winner. After some debate, I will not be counting @Tick's season zero CFT championship, though his accolades throughout his career will ensure him presence in the second division. I'll be working out a formula to determine the ranking officially, but I am certain that @manYo720 will fill out this division, the Makuuchi.
       
      The next division will be the Donkey Division comprised solely of @~Tailback King~ and @XtraLargent as the only competitors they could possibly be lumped in with are each other.
       
      Just kidding, they will be in the Juryo which is the next four ranked players, I would imagine being headed up by @boogiewithstu and whoever ends up being highest ranked among the likes of whoever else puts their name in the hat.
       
      After that is the Makushita which is an unspecified number of players comprised of any other veteran of a PNW Tecmo event, and the Sandanme will consist of every untested rookie that might get involved.
       
      These rankings will determine the each competitors' first three or four matches, with the top ranked players facing tougher competition, after that, match-ups will be determined by record, with each player playing the same amount of matches. Once we finish a round and there are 1 or less players who have yet to record 4 losses on the day, a champion will be crowned, with playoffs to determine tiebreaks, including potentially, for the title. If you recall the Mayhem tourneys that were quintuple elimination, it will be very similar to that, with the major exception that everyone will keep playing until the end.
       
      What I am hoping to achieve with this format is some great battles for regional Tecmo supremacy and some more stiff contests on down the ladder as players jostle for position, which will hopefully carry on to further tournaments down the road! There will once again be FUN prizes, themed rounds, and trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd! I am HOPEFUL that this tournament will end significantly earlier then the average CFT tourney (7 or 8 pm) Get your name in the hat so I can work out the Banzuke asap. The venue is a classic neighborhood sports pub that I knew was the place when I saw someone had hooked up an Atari Flashback to one of the TVs. This in addition to them having a few arcade cabinets on site such as Street Fighter II. There is also an arcade/pinball oriented bar right next door called Coindexter. THE BEST PART of this place is that it is in the heart of Sea-town yet somehow has a HUGE free parking lot right there due to a closed DMV. It also has an alley for super-easy unloading of TVs and equipment.
       
      I am designing this to be the most action-packed Tecmo Super Bowl tournament yet. Hope to see you all there for the beginning of the next chapter in Cascadia FUCKING Tecmo!

      @gojiphen malor
      @Knobbe
      @BigCat71
      @manYo720
      @Miles Prower
       
      Also, for future reference, if you don't specify who's going to win by game time, it counts as a loss against you.  If you honestly cannot bring yourself to guess right away, you have until the games start to come up with a winner.  Or you can be the gutsy one and call a tie.
       
      Anyways, I'll make my picks later.  I need to think about my choices before I settle on anything concrete.

      Time for Week 2, everybody!  Here are this week's games:
       
      Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals
      Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons
      Los Angeles Chargers @ Buffalo Bills
      Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
      Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans
      Cleveland Browns @ New Orleans Saints
      Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets
      Kansas City Chiefs @ Pittsburgh Steelers
      Philadelphia Eagles @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
      Indianapolis Colts @ Washington Redskins
      Arizona Cardinals @ Los Angeles Rams
      Detroit Lions @ San Francisco 49ers
      Oakland Raiders @ Denver Broncos
      New England Patriots @ Jacksonville Jaguars
      New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
      Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears
       
      Make your picks!  Here's mine!
       
      Ravens, Panthers, Chargers, Packers, Texans, Saints, Jets, Chiefs, Eagles, Redskins, Rams, 49ers, Broncos, Patriots, Giants, and Bears.
       
      Survival pick for this week would have to be the Saints or 49ers.  A lot of tossup games this week as well.  Though the biggest question mark is the Packers.  If Aaron Rodgers is ruled out for the week, I'm gonna change my pick to the Vikings.
       
      Edit:  I changed one of my picks.  Instead of thinking the Falcons will win, I am now leaning more towards Carolina.  Hopefully, I don't regret that pick.  And since Aaron Rodgers is back out on the practice field, I am still leaning more towards Green Bay.  But if he ends up getting ruled out tomorrow, I'm gonna change my pick to Minnesota.  Everything else will be left as is.

      I'm going to simply keep track of everybody's scores manually.  Each person has until five minutes before the game starts to put their Pick'ems in.  And I'll be keeping track of the tallies for each week, and for the whole year in general.  As an added bonus, I'll even keep track of how many times somebody wins a particular week.  But with the highest tally after the Super Bowl wins.
       
      Two rules!  You got until five games before the game starts to put a pick in.  Otherwise, it will be treated as a non pick.  In addition, every pick must be made in a single comment.  You can discuss things if you want.  But for the sake of keeping track of everybody's choices, all picks--even if you change your mind later on--must be located in the same comment.  Otherwise, it will be treated as a non pick.
       
      With that said, let's cover the games that are to take place in Week 1!
       
      ATL @ PHI
      PIT @ CLE
      CIN @ IND
      TEN @ MIA
      SF @ MIN
      HOU @ NE
      TB @ NO
      JAX @ NYG
      BUF @ BAL
      KC @ LAC
      SEA @ DEN
      WAS @ ARI
      DAL @ CAR
      CHI @ GB
      NYJ @ DET
      LAR @ OAK
       
      Here are my weekly picks:  Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Minnesota, New England, New Orleans, Jacksonville, Baltimore, Chargers, Broncos, Cardinals, Panthers, Packers, Lions, and Rams.  My Survivor pick of the week, however, is Pittsburgh over Cleveland (yes, a road team being chosen as the Survivor Pick of the Week; it is the Browns, after all).  And my toughest pick to make was Arizona over Washington.
