    The 49ers pull out the win by capitalizing on Joe Flacco's costly mistakes. The Ravens risky decision to try for the FG with 01:20 left in the 4th ruined the chance to hold the Lombardi trophy.

    Kaepernick throws 2 TDs and runs for another. He's the MVP by a long shot.

    Real easy to find. Take the walden exit for buffalo. Just half a mile down. Location is next to a tim horton's and several good resteraunts are nearby besides what is served at the hall. I think a Chilpolte, subway, mighty taco (I highly recommend this if it is your first trip to buffalo), fridays, applebees and several other restarurants.

    As for hotels the ones on Walden Ave are in walking distance. Any hotel on the list is no more than 15 mins from the tourney site.

    these list the hotels in cheektowaga, if you can't find what you want its not to hard to get to the tourney site from the hotels in amherest on transit road and in amherest by the university.

    (Less than 25) Random Triple elmination. non bracket.
    (More than 25) Round-Robin Group play and elimination brackets. Groups will consist of 4 players. each group will be fairly divided with new and experienced players. Your 3 games in group play will determine your seed in the elimination bracket. The seeded elimination bracket will be single elimination until the elite 8. In the elite 8 it will double elimination.

    Gameplay rules
    1. dl use with no lurching (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.)
    2. cannot have a run play with a wr and te(except reverse). players like Givins and Sanders are considered wr's.
    3. playbook changes/lineup editing each pregame
    4.“One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament.
    5. if we use group play...differential of your win and losses in group play will help determine your seed. The most you can win a group play game is 28points... so if you win 35-3...your winning differential will be +28. Note: if we use random triple elimnation your differential wont matter.
    6. TIES:
    No game can end in a tie. 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.

    How matchup is chosen.

    The coin flip winner picks matchup option a. Or option b. Pick a card with a set matchup on it.
    If A is chosen the coin flip loser picks team or controller. Then whatever is left goes to coin flip winner.
    Option B means you select a random card from a deck of many fair matchups. The coin flip loser still gets to pick his preference of team or controller. the coin flip winner gets whatever is left over.
    (this is given as an alternative for those who do not like to pick a matchup.)

    Tournament Issues

    All issues will be settled by the tournament crew. Headed by Louis Buennagel, Francis Buennagel. (Others will be designated by gameday as seconds for when we are playing.)
    Report contoller issues and any other issues.
    Game freeze will be settled by playing out part or all of the game depending on circumstnace. Unless you cause a reset by your physical actions. The final decision is up to the tournament directors or those designated by the directors.
    All equipment loaned for the tourney will be tracked. You may use your own controller if it is standard but do not move the other controller from that station. Respect all equipment as if it was your own's.
    Excessive misbehavior will result in your elimination from the tourney and all future events.

    The Tecmo Roller - TLL 1978

    By deadfaulkner, in ROMs,

    I don't know if Ken Stabler plays Tecmo, but in this video Tecmo plays Ken Stabler. This reenactment of the Holy Roller play from 1978 is a teaser for the upcoming installment of the Tecmo Legacy League ahead of its own 1978 season.

    Be sure to check out at http://www.scottzolak.com/tll/index.php. We're just about to begin the 1977 playoffs, so visit the site for live games, historical news article, stats, and more

    This program is for checking all players conditions at once:
    UNDER OPTIONS-->PATHS make sure the Use internal compression box is NOT CHECKED or the program will not work. 
    General Directions
      1. Unzip and save the file to your computer. *** Make sure a save state exists. Create a dummy one if you have yet to play a game on the rom*** 2. Double click the file "Conditions.jar" 3. Navigate to the directory where the save state is located and hit open Specific Directions for online players

    It was promised from the outset that 32-team rom capability would come to dynastyphile, and guess what, suckas? It's live. It doesn't work to switch from 28-team to 32-team roms midseason, but you can update your 28-team rom to a 32-team rom when your season rolls over. You'll just have to switch team ownership around afterward.

    Yes, believe it or not, I am still alive. Working six days a week doesn't leave much time for Tecmo-ing. But, as a Colts fan, this play was too perfect not to get Tecmo-ed.

    (Also, I have no idea how to get embedding to work on this new forum. Sue me.)


    Official All-Time WTF Rankings

    By tecmomig, in News,

    I only figured out the numbers for past players that have played a minimum of 150 games. I figured a lot of this league is keeping up with the pace so those players who couldn't reach a 150 games didn't fit the bill when it came to the WTF. The formula remained the same and each final score was multiplied by 100. Where do you stand ALL-TIME in the best tecmo league ever...

    1. Opus12 - 72pts (412 games)(8 WTF Super Bowls)

    2. Canesrforeal - 65pts (324 games)(4 WTF Super Bowls)

    3. Lordsummerisle64 - 61pts (266 games)(1 WTF Super Bowl)

    4. Lillefty021 - 44pts (221 games)(2 WTF Super Bowls)

    5. Brookstonfowler - 29pts (390 games)(2 WTF Super Bowls)

    6. MRTECMOSUPERBOWL - 28PTS (340 games)

    7. Discdolo - 26pts (320 games)

    8. Tecmodell42 - 22pts (195 games)

    9. Berger2313 - 12pts (147 games)(1 WTF Super Bowl)

    10. BigFatPaulie5 - 7pts (237 games)(1 WTF Super Bowl)
