Cleveland, OH - 08/04/18 - Tecmo (Jam) Cleveland 2018

Recommended Posts

Couldn’t have said it any better myself weapon.

 

i can only go by personal experience so here goes. Tecmo Cleveland was my first tecmo tourney ever and I don’t think I could have started at a better event. The majority of the group of players and people I had met that day were great. No one that I came across was a douche bag and all seemed willing to help others out with the rules/playing the game under the tourney rules. So even if you’re a newcomer you’re met with open arms in this community of gamers.  

 

 I always find it amazing that these games like tecmo (ice hockey, mk2, street fighter, ken Griffey, etc) all manage to garner a good crowd of people and good times all because of the fond memories we had playing it growing up.

 

Ultimateweapon is 100% right on tom, couldn’t have said it better myself... the guy is a trooper and is the main reason for this event and how great it is. As a noob going into last years event I thought it was excellently run and was done so in a organized manner. The venue was great, the sponsors were fantastic, the t-shirt I got with my buy in is still in my wardrobe rotation (fashionable yet still a shameless plug) The tournament felt like it zoomed by, and considering there were 63 contenders and mort to deal with, I’d say tom did a hell of a job. Like I said he’s a trooper. He does a hell of a job spreading himself out to everyone with questions/comments/concerns throughout the tourney. 

 

So in short, tecmo Cleveland is like the tony danza of tecmo tourneys a it’s garbage picking, field goal kicking, close to Philadelphia phenemon..... sadly that is the best anology I can come up with at the time, since there are no good Cleveland football movies (if you say draft day we will fight)

Tom has done an amazing job with Tecmo Cleveland - running promotional satellite events leading up to the tournaments, getting sponsors, media exposure and growing the community in Northeast Ohio (and beyond), etc.  It's hard to fathom the number of man hours and personal investment he has poured into this.  The man has a passion for Tecmo Super Bowl and retro gaming in general!  Great guy who wants to see our community continue to grow and thrive.  Tecmo Cleveland II promises to be more of the same fun from last year with an added bonus of an NBA Jam TE tournament on Sunday.  

 

Last year Tom had over 64 guys come out the first year he opened this tournament to the public.  This year, there will be even more opportunities to play and win as he has increased the number of games each person will play and added a consolation bracket.   If you live within a reasonable driving distance, this is a no brainer.  Even if you don't, Tom will make sure your time is well spent!

 

I have been to Tecmo Madison, Midwest, Detroit, Buffalo, Columbus, Cleveland and others,  I also used to run a number of smaller tournaments in the Cleveland area.  I couldn't be happier to endorse, assist with and participate in this event.  If you are on the fence, don't hesitate to sign up! 

Spot on. I made the two-hour trip up to Tecmo Cleveland last year after hanging out with a few Clevelander friends the night before. Well worth it. Had a great time and would definitely be going back this year except for being out of the country that weekend. Bummer. Hope to make it in '19!

There is a good crew from southeastern Ohio coming. Good as in good time, not sure about the Tecmo skill, unfortunately I will also be out of the continental U.S. that weekend which is a bummer. But I am going to give someone going some money and have them pick me up a tee shirt, size XXL. Will def make it in 2019 if not on vacation!

 

Last year was a blast, Tom goes above and beyond for this tournament. Still one of the best after tourney times I've had. Playing Sega/SNES at the 16 bit bar with the whole bar chanting to Family Feud. Then spending $18 on gas station food and watching @red98sethuthut destroy a gas station burrito...good times.

Tecmo Cleveland was a blast last year.  The work Tom has put in to run the tourney(s) and all the events leading up to them in the past year is amazing.  The tecmo community in north east ohio has grown quite a bit and led to friendships and a lot of fun games.  I look forward to playing until my thumbs break next week.

      What: 2012 Midwest Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament (Fifth Annual)
      When: Saturday, July 28, 2012, 11 a.m. registration; noon start time
      Where: Rick’s Tavern & Grille, 5955 Boymel Drive, Fairfield, Ohio 45014
      Who: Anyone who loves to play Tecmo Super Bowl
      Maximum participants: 64
      Buy-in: $20
      Prizes: Trophies, cash and handouts
      Twitter Hashtag: #OhioV

      Tournament Format
      Format No. 1:
      The 2012 Midwest Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament is a world cup style tournament with a capacity of 64 participants. Pre-tournament, the organizers will divide the field into groups of four. Well-known and unknown players will be distributed evenly throughout the field. Each group will play a round-robin, meaning all four players within each group will play one another once. Each tournament participant is guaranteed three games. Only the top two participants from each group will advance from group play. The top two players from each group will be selected by overall record. If two players have the same record, a head-to-head tiebreaker will determine tournament placement. If three players have the same record, point differential will break the tie. The maximum point differential available in an individual game is 28 points. This should alleviate any unnecessary tension in lopsided group play games. A single-elimination format will follow group play. Each group winner is guaranteed a spot in the single-elimination Field of 32. Once the Field of 32 is assembled, a single-elimination tournament will proceed until only a champion remains.

      Format No. 2:
      If there are less than 32 participants, the tournament will be played using a triple-elimination format. This guarantees every player at least three games. No pool play will be administered in this format.

      Game Play
      Team Selection and Coin Toss:
      A manual coin-flip will precede each game. Flip winner chooses the matchup. Flip loser then selects either one of the two teams or his preferred controller. If the flip loser selects preferred controller, the flip winner selects a team first. The coin-flip winner can only pick a certain matchup once during the entire tournament.

      Playbooks and Lineup:
      Customizing playbooks is allowed. You can access your “change” screen (screen where you check player conditions and make substitutions) only twice per half. This helps speed up the games.

      WR or TE at RB:
      A WR is at RB only if, upon accessing the starting lineup/change screen, the WR appears in a RB slot (as opposed to a WR slot). This is prohibited. WRs that remain in a WR slot may, however, carry the football. This comes into play with teams having only 1 RB slot, such as the Lions, Chargers, Cardinals, Oilers, Falcons, and Redskins. When selecting matchups, therefore, be aware that Ricky Sanders and Earnest Givins can carry the football on plays in which they remain in a WR slot (i.e. offset I and toss up).

      Ties:
      Although ties are permitted in the tournament’s “group play” portion, such are not permitted in the single-elimination portion of the tournament. If a game ends in a tie after overtime, a new game will begin, and the first player to score in the new game is the winner.

      Lurching:
      Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. You cannot simply go around your blocker and dive. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs.

      Game Malfunctions:
      If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game.

      Tournament Issues:
      Questions and concerns should be brought to tourney director Chris Vogt’s attention. If Chris is not available, his brothers Jimmy Vogt and Matt Vogt have the next say on the issue.

      The Unlucky 13 as the title implies are the 13 teams that to this day have yet to win a Super Bowl--four of which have never even played in the Super Bowl.  As a reference, here are the Unlucky 13:
       
      Arizona Cardinals
      Atlanta Falcons
      Buffalo Bills
      Carolina Panthers
      Cincinnati Bengals
      Cleveland Browns
      Detroit Lions
      Houston Texans
      Jacksonville Jaguars
      Los Angeles Chargers
      Minnesota Vikings
      Philadelphia Eagles
      Tennessee Titans
       
      And of these 13 teams with the most unfortunate of fates, which of them will be the first to hoist the Lombardi Trophy?  Me, personally?  I'm gonna be bold on this one and select....
       
      The Tennessee Titans
       
      2016 saw the Titans make some incredible strides, having defeated the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, and Kansas City Chiefs--all playoff teams--as well as toppling the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos.  I think should the Patriots go south within a year or two, either the Titans or the Raiders will step up and reach the Super Bowl.  Some would also include the Steelers too--who may be looking at their last shot at cementing a Super Bowl dynasty of their very own (only the Giants also have a realistic shot at a Super Bowl dynasty) before Big Ben retires.  So perhaps give the Titans a year or two--or maybe they'll just have a Cinderella story for the ages this year--and maybe we'll see them hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at last.
       
      The Houston Texans are pretty close as well, though I think their championship window is shrinking.  If they can't get any consistent quarterback play, and they don't get it done this year, they might not be able to get it done at all.
       
      As for the NFC, I'm struggling to figure out who out of that pool could possibly win their first Lombardi Trophy either this year or in the near future because the NFC doesn't have a consistent champion, especially not among them.  Maybe the Panthers?  Some would say the Falcons as well, but given the way that they lost the Super Bowl last time, I'm gonna say they wind up missing the playoffs instead.  Maybe the Eagles, but I'm seeing a more Peyton Manning-type QB in Carson Wentz rather than a Big Ben or Tom Brady-type of career.  At least he has a stellar defense behind him.  But I have to theorize that for as long as the Eagle fanbase continues to be so unabashedly unhinged, the Eagles will continue to suffer. 
       
      And the Arizona Cardinals, I'm gonna predict, will have their very last shot at Super Bowl glory this year.  If they don't get it done, both Carson Palmer and/or Larry Fitzgerald will retire, and the Cardinals will enter the bargain basement for quite a long time.
       
      So what do you guys think?  Or is there an optimistic Cleveland Browns fan that have high hopes that a Super Bowl dynasty might be on the horizon?  No mocking.  But please explain why and discuss in a civil manner.
