We have a website, where we are working towards cataloging our history as a league and the offseason tournaments we have run. We also feature articles pertaining to Tecmo Bowl strategy and player breakdowns you won't see anywhere else. 

 

We also have a YouTube channel. Starting this season (8), we have preserved every game played for viewing and stat-tracking.

What program do you use to edit the roms with drafted rosters?

 

There's a 32 Team Editor pinned in this section.

Also why did tecmo ninja draft Jim kelly? Was he in the japan version of tecmo bowl? I didnt see him in the rosters listed here.

 

We have what we call the "Hero Round" where I randomly (with some help) generate a unique class every season. A Hero is the Japan version of an already existing player, with their name changed to one that fits the time period so we don't have two of the same player. We do this to increase parity. Jim Kelly is the Japan version of Bernie Kosar.

Few more questions:

 

1. How does it work when you draft the middle defense of a 4-3 team?

2. Since the raiders technically only have 2 receivers in their 2 back set how do you make that work? 

3. Can you switch top and bottom receivers/tight ends?

4. Can you switch defensive player alignment?

5. Does drafting the raiders playbook require you to to have two running backs. If so how do you manage that?

6. What are your rules on qb runs, play picks, and field goal/xp blocking. Same as omaha?

Sorry for the late response!

 

1. We draft 3 defensive groupings, Top, Middle and Bottom. The Top is the top defensive ends, top outside linebackers and top defensive backs while the Bottom is the bottom of those units. The Middle is going to be the nose tackle and inside linebackers if a 3-4, or if 4-3 will be two defensive tackles and the middle linebacker. The Middle determines your defensive formation. Things get a little fuzzy with Heroes, but basically if you draft a defender that would not be in his original position in your defense we closely approximate where they would be.

       3-4 Nose Tackle <-> 4-3 Top DT

       3-4 Top ILB <-> 4-3 MLB
 

2. The LA receiving corps has been given Mervyn Fernandez from Famicom at WR1 to compensate for this.

3. No, we keep everyone at their original spots.

4. Not unless you draft a Hero out of position

5. It does. You have to draft the playbook first, then a running back at a later pick. Originally we allowed a double selection of RB and that PB but have since disallowed it. 

6. Our rules are exactly the same as Omaha's except you cannot intentionally throw to a computer covered receiver on an unstoppable route, though you can do it to human defenders.
