Rules:

1. Tier list for group play.  Winner of coin toss is player 1 and chooses tier.  Loser of coin toss chooses team from tier player 1 selected or a lower tier.  Winner of coin toss chooses team second from tier originally chosen or lower tier.

No automatic alt text available.

 

2. We will not keep track of teams used during group play.  Choose the team that best suits you in group play under the tier list guidelines.

 

3. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes.  You are allowed to change your selected team's playbook before each game.  Checking the change / substitution screen is allowed during gameplay.  Once per quarter for each player is the recommendation. 

 

4. All substitutions of any player in any position is LEGAL

 

5.  No ties. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. All OT’s will be 5-minute sudden death periods. If no one scores in the first OT, the second OT will be only the first quarter in a new game. This process will be repeated until a winner emerges. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in every OT period, the receiving team (i.e. team that gets the ball first) shall alternate beginning with the second OT period.

 

6. Defensive Lineman Lurching / Nose Tackle Dive / Any D-Lineman Dive is LEGAL

 

7. Nintendo 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.

 

8. Tournament Disputes: Trojan1979 is the sole tournament referee. He will decide all disputes as he is not a competitor in this event.

 

9. Competitors are allowed to bring their own controller, but it has to be an official Nintendo rectangle controller, official Nintendo dogbone controller, or a Hyperkin, Cirka, Gamerztek, or Old Skool 3rd party controller.  We reserve the right to inspect and deny use of any controller for any reason.

 

10. All systems are either original NES consoles, or top loading clone consoles by Gamerztek, all hooked up via composite connection on CRT screens.

Have you ever wanted to be a commentator at a Tecmo Tournament?  Maybe you just want to cut a wrestling promo Tecmo style?  This is your opportunity!  This stream will be run by The Retro Sports Gamer teams.  The goal of this stream is to capture the natural essence of the tournament and get as many unique players on stream as possible.  Want to play on stream?  Just ask!  We will do our best to broadcast your game next.

Dallaire Realty has stepped up as a pizza sponsor, so free pizza is awesome..  Currently the Edge VR Arcade is working on securing a beer license.  I've been assured that in the unlikely event that this doesn't happen, we will be able to bring our own and do a beer swap.  This worked very well during the NHL94 tournament we ran there back in February.

It would appear it costs $10 (or $5 if you pre-pay) to get in the door and $20 to play in the tourney. If someone brings a guest who isn't playing does that person also need to pay a cover?

Two-player one chooses tier one. And player two chooses New England Patriots. It is then up to player one to choose their team. Can he still choose within Tier 1?  

 

That's just an example to backup the question that if a player chooses a team below the tier selected, does the second team also need to pick below the tier selected?

Also, is it normal to have lurching allowable at tournaments? I've only been to Tecmo Madison so I don't really follow this stuff, don't judge.

@Knobbe it looks like this got pinned, so thank you very much.  Thanks for the questions, and let me get those answered.


$30 is the walk in cost, as in anyone that walks in the day of the event to register.  $25 is the cost to those that register online after September 25th.  Those that register on or before September 25th receive a discount of $5 knocking the price of participation down to $20.  Hopefully that clears that up for you.

 

At this time there is no cover for being a spectator at this event.  As this is being held at a business(Edge VR Arcade) with public traffic, ultimately paying customers of the venue, and our tournament participants would receive priority access over spectators should the venue reach an occupancy capacity.  Spectators are encouraged to visit, and take advantage of the amazing experience put on by the Edge VR Arcade team.  There truly is nothing like it in our regional market.

If Tier 1 is called, and Player 2 is so bold as to call Seattle, Player 1 can still select a Tier 1 team, or any other team(except Seattle) based on this rule set.  Those of us that have played Tecmo for any length of time would say that's not a wise move for Player 2, but to each his own.

Thanks for your question!  Forgive the long answer, but I'm hoping to answer more broadly so folks understand what's different in case anyone else stumbles on this question.

 

The Hardcore format, which allows lurching from the DL position is in the minority when compared with the majority of tournaments that have emerged over the years.

 

We acknowledge that this format does cause certain challenges and risks for some teams, and certain playbook selections.  This and other rules such as the ability to place WR in running plays alters things based on your preferred team selection, but does not break the game.

 

Teams with faster MS QBs are more easily able to avoid lurching while under center, as well as make opponents pay for doing so.  Vinnie, Majik, and Peete all give their team a boost in this cause.  Teams with elite defenders on the DL, especially the NT position  can pose risk to certain under center plays.  Teams like the Packers, Raiders, and the Lions all valued just a bit higher because of these positional advantages.

 

Teams that can step up their running attack with this rule set include Houston, Philly, Miami, LA Rams, Minnesota, Washington, Atlanta, Green Bay, and New England.

 

If you'd like to take a look at the video coverage posted in this response of the Hardcore Tecmo Championship in Chicago, you will see that the Tecmo cream still rises to the top.

 

In short, we believe that there is a demand for a tournament format that is minimally restrictive in its approach, giving newer players an opportunity to hit the ground running without having a complex rule set for them to navigate, while still providing competitive high level play at the top.  The Tecmo Hardcore Championship proved this was a successful format, and with a bit of tweaking to the tiers, we are bringing said format to Green Bay.  I hope you will join us!

Tecmo in its purest form, the way it is meant to be played.

 

It's certainly the uncut cocaine of Tecmo.

I brought one of my kiddos over to the venue today for some VR.  Thought i'd share a glimpse of the venue to everyone.  The space will be made to accomodate our tournament needs.  Having run a successful NHL94 tournament there already, a the time the venue being half the size, this should be a solid experience for everyone.  You might have to friend me on Facebook if you can't view it.  https://www.facebook.com/100011188508470/videos/660793510970260/

Greg Cundari aka Angryjay93, the defending King of 94 Sega Genesis champion of NHL94 will be present for this one. Flight is booked. I'm sure we will have some side NHL94 action going on throughout the weekend, in case you want to get your confidence cross checked.

Congrats to @NMUFred on his victory last night, winning free entry!

We did get to stream, but had limited time to get in and out of the venue, so we didn't have time to dial in the stream audio very well.  We were still able to capture games and add some commentary.

 

Enjoy!
