-Determined seeding for the single elimination playoff creates the order for players to choose their team for the remainder of the tournament.  (Tier 1 is excluded)  For example, the first seed chooses their team first, then the second seed, third seed etc.  20th seed gets last choice of team.

 

Prizes:

1st Place

- $300 Cash

 

2nd Place

- $100 Cash

 

Prizes are guaranteed

 

Returning Equalizer Champion @tecmobo is the #1 overall seed and has free entry

 

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.

2. 49ers are allowed for group play.

 

3. 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.

 

4. 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. 

 

5. WR/TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse.

 

6.  No ties. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, a new game will be started until someone scores first.  Sudden Death!

 

7. Defensive Lineman Lurching is prohibited. In this tournament, lurching is defined by user controlling a defensive lineman, not engaging a blocker, then diving at the quarterback or running back.  If you go around the offensive line, you are allowed to dive at the quarterback.  Going through the offensive line is permitted with a defensive lineman, but diving at quarterback or running back would be considered lurching.

 

8. 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.

 

9. Tournament Disputes: Tom Stahnke is the tournament referee. He will decide all disputes unless he is a player in the game. If he is a player in the disputed game, Francis Buennagel will resolve the dispute.

 

10. Competitors are allowed to bring their own controller, but it has to be an official Nintendo rectangle controller, official Nintendo dogbone controller, or the official Hyperkin Cadet NES controller.

Nice! No Dmen Tap for this one?

 

No, Phil knows about it.  The Michael Anthony’s owner asked if I was still doing retro gaming tournaments.   I figured I could keep this tournament there.  I have a long term relationship with this neighborhood bar / pizzeria.  Been going there since I was a kid.  Gives a chance to my local friends to come out and enjoy the tournament even if most of them don’t play.

Great another tournament to lose money at count me in 

 

Don’t sell yourself short.  This kind of format is made for you.  If you get to draft a high powered passing team you will be dangerous in bracket play.  I just witnessed your Rams beat Toolie’s Chiefs while eating my lunch on Saturday.

It's awesome that you are including another venue.  My question is, why these friends wouldn't come to a tournament at Dmen Tap, which isn't that far away, when you have people coming from states away to be in it?

Makes sense. Hopefully they've fixed their wifi since I think last time the stream didnt work very well.

Driving in Chicago is a pain in the a$$.  In another city 5 miles away is like 10 mins.  Here it's a stressful 30 minute drive.  It would be like me asking my friends in cheektowaga bars that have a bare minimal interest in tecmo to hang out in a tourney in Niagara falls NY.  

 

Also if anyone wants to travel out I got space for 3 people at my apartment.  If some guys come Friday we can check out galloping ghost arcade which is near my apartment and the venue.

Streaming via wifi is usually a crap shoot at best, even if it's stable.  Using a wired connection to an stable LTE connection is usually better on the I/O of the PC.

 

You guys have been blessed with the Dmen wired connection.

Registered and ready to rock!!

 

@Deleted Account lives a lot closer to Michael Anthony's than I do, I think, but I can host some folks if needed as well.

I live on the north side of Chicago, about a 40 minute drive from Michael Anthony's. Just in case it is worth someone's while.

Only a few weeks left until the Equalizer! Although this is much farther from my house (about 25 minutes as opposed to 9) I will be making it out for this one. I hope to see many of you there. This is another really fun tournament with some interesting wrenches thrown into it for some added fun. Last year I ended up with one of the very last picks and got to be the Cardinals. I upset Todd Daniels in round 1 and played a tough matchup against eventual champion and tecmo great Tecmo Bo. Hoping to get a better team this year and see what we can do!

If you are coming out to The Equalizer 2, consider entering the NBA Jam: Tournament Edition (Sega Genesis) challenge against @Dan S (DPS) and myself. We are NBA Jam studs and we are putting our money where our mouth is.

 

Defeat either me or DPS in NBA Jam: TE in a one-on-one battle and you could win up to $25! 

 

Here are the rules:

 

1) Challenger may select ANY team of his choice.

2) Challenger selects how many tiers advantage he wants to have against us (5 total tiers). The tier handicap determines the level of the stakes ($).

3) We select our team based on tier disadvantage.

4) One-on-one match with standard settings: 3/timer speed, 3/cpu difficulty,  tag mode ON, Tournament Mode ON

 

Stakes: 

 

*  Winning with teams from the same tier = you win $25!      $0 paid if you lose.

*  Winning with 1 tier difference = $20.    $0 paid if you lose.

*  Winning with 2 tier difference = $10 for a win.     $0 paid if you lose.

*  Winning with a 3 tier difference = $10 for a win.      $5 paid if you lose.

*  Winning with a 4 tier difference = $10 for a win.     $10 paid if you lose .

 

Tiers:

 

382517023_jamtier.thumb.png.73d802172402310d587c048bc94ac0e6.png

 

Example:

 

Challenger takes the Knicks from tier 2. And they want a two-tier advantage. This means we can choose any team from tier 4 or lower. The stakes are $10 if the challenger wins, with $0 lost if they lose. 

 

So come out out and take our $$$ !!!

@Green Majik and I are very excited to play some NBA Jam TE against some people and give them an opportunity to play against a couple of world record holders (no big deal). Come out for the Tecmo and stay for some NBA Jam!

For the players attending the tournament. 

 

Best places to park:

-Right next to Michael Anthony's on Elmwood Ave.

-Right on the street on Ogden Ave. on the Michael Anthony's side.

-The Laundromat parking lot on Ogden Ave. and Gunderson Ave. is fine.

-Any side street in Berwyn is fair game.

 

Hoping to reveal groups by Friday
