1. Team Selection  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. 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. Only a running back may receive a hand off, unless a reverse play is called.  It is permissible

 

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 ILLEGAL.  You must engage a lineman or go around the tackle box before engaging a player with a D-Lineman.  This rule does not apply on Shotgun/Red Gun Z formations.  This rule also does not apply on field goals or extra points.

 

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 for dispute resolution unless stated otherwise the day of the tournament.

 

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.

It appears there is a character limit on my posts.  When this does come down the pipe, in order to provide all of the needed details, I'll need this increased, or will need a moderator to modify the post to include the additional details.

 

Thanks to all for their consideration.

 

I could not reproduce this error nor does anything show up in the error logs. Also, it's not an option to set a character limit on posts.

One thing that doesn't show up in the error logs would be a flood control error so if you tried to make one post right after the other it wouldn't let you and you would see this red text.

If you are able to repro please email me a screen shot so I can further investigate.

@trojan1979 To confirm what Mort said, yes I plan to do Tomczak on March 2, but either way I'm planning on avoiding this weekend because it doesn't work for me anyway.

I was extremely stoked and surprised when the owner of Player 2 Arcade Bar in Appleton, WI asked me if this would be a cool prize for sponsorship at our Tecmo tournament February 22nd.

 

I'll let you be the judge.  BTW, Player 2 Arcade Bar is a fantastic place to hang out, and play classic arcade games and pinball.  They even modded their SNES Playchoice to play a NHL94 cartridge.

Super excited for this 2 day tournament. As an NHL 94 newbie I'm excited to get better and show some of the good players what I got. What I also know is the Tecmo side of it is going to be very fun. As you all know Green Bay has a great crowd of people and the state of Wisconsin has tons of Tecmo'ers. Come out and play some Tecmo Friday with us Chicago boys.

Things got a bit delayed due to some technical challenges, but here's the clip where I'm on talking mostly NHL94, but Tecmo does get a mention in there too.  Enjoy!

Our turnout for Tecmo is looking very decent considering it's on a Friday night.  Due to time constraints we may be imposing a 32 person limit on this.  If you are wanting to be in on this make sure to send in your payment to lock in your spot.

Our current TSB cap is 32 players for this tournament due to time and space(estimated room for 16 setups)  Between playing sponsors and paid players, we are at 27 players.  While two of us(Myself and Baconfan) can step out to allow someone else paying in, we are still getting close to full.  We are not competing against the Brewers this time, and we are only allowing digital payment, so we don't expect many(if any) cancellations from currently signed up players.

 

We don't wish to turn anyone away, so if you were planning on being a part of the fun, please sign up!

Super excited about Barry Melrose next weekend!!!

 

This will be my second time coming to an Edge of '94 event. Last year was a total blast. Got a lot of NHL games in and had a lot of fun watching a very competitive finals.

I am excited to play in the Friday night Tecmo tournament for the first time. During Tundra I was pleased to find there is a strong core or solid Tecmo players in the Green Bay area. I hope the GB guys are ready, cause the Chicago boys are looking to make some noise!!

 

I'm also looking forward to all this pizza that is being mentioned. Looks like I just need to bring some coconut water and I'll be good to go :). Props to @trojan1979 / Troy for always having awesome sponsors, prizes, and an overall well-run tournament.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing what all Edge VR Arcade has to offer. Last year I played some nifty VR games - one of them was a flying sim. I was too chicken to follow through with it, but I'm looking to be braver next year!

 

See you all next weekend !!

Thanks for the kind words GM!  So far we are rocking about 27 players for Tecmo, and about 31 for NHL94.  Definitely could use more, but the overall participation is up from last year's weekend.  We are hoping for a few more 94 players to come out of the woodwork and get their sign ups in.
