    This event is one of my favorites (top 3) in the nation, I've attended this event twice and had a blast. It is highly recommended and is one of the most elite tournaments in the Northeast. 
     
    Unfortunately I won't be able to attend, but if you have the chance to attend, do so, you won't regret it. I believe last year had over 50 participants. Great time with great guys.

    There are only 8 spots available. Spots will be handed out on a first come first serve basis. Please post your preferred team below. 
    For those who aren't familiar with how NTA operates, I've attached below some things that may answer some of the questions you may have. You may also message me on Discord @suicideking81 Link to NTA website ---> https://www.tecmo.us/nta/
    The National Tecmo Association is a spiritual successor to the Improved Tecmo League and the Noob Football League before it.  The league is about making some tweaks to the original game, while keeping the same rosters, attributes, and feel of the original. Another important aspect of the league is the camaraderie, competitiveness, and dedication each individual member brings to the league.  The league's goal is not to be the largest, but to be a group of cool tecmoers enjoying a league of simplicity
     
    Offseason:

    Each season will feature a quick draft of randomly chosen teams that can't be re-drafted until all others have been. 
     
    Draft:

    Drafting will be conducted in tandems.  You will select ONE of the following (in any order):
    QB1
    RB 1 & RB2
    WR 1 WR 2 & TE
    Backups and OL (includes QB 2, RB 3 & 4, WR 3 & 4, TE 2 and all OL)
    DL  (1-3)
    LB's (1-4)
    DB's (1-4)
    Kicker and Punter
     
    The Regular Season:

    The schedule is made up of back to back home games against the same opponent to make for quick and easy scheduling and even out the left side "advantage".
     
    The Playoffs:

    The good...everyone makes the playoffs.  The bad...the worse you finish in the season the harder it is to win it all.  Taking a page from the ETL, the worst team has to run the gauntlet to the title while the Season "champ" only has to win 1 game.  
     
    Playoff Bracket
          #7 vs #8
          winner of above plays #6
          winner of above plays #5
          winner of above plays #4
          winner of above plays #3
          winner of above plays #2
          winner of above plays #1 for the Championship
     
    Here are the hacks we use in our league:
     
    Returner Hack:

    KR and PR speed based on their actual MS, not the RT and SS as the orig rom currently does. I've tested this with the fastest offensive players in the game, and it definitely makes the return game more of a threat!  
     
    Grapple Hack:

    Makes the HP of players involved in man-to-man grapples actually matter by giving extra presses to the higher HP player. In the original rom all that matters is tapping. Drones start with 7 default taps, and then are given more based on the HP scale. Man players are only given taps based on the HP scale. Good tappers will still have an advantage over bad tappers though. 
    HP Scale
          13 HP....0 presses
          19....1
          25....1
          31....2
          38....2
          44....3
          50....3
          56....4
          63....4
          69....5
          75....5
          81....6
          88....6
          94....7
          100...7
     
    Quickness Hack:

    Allows for defensive TD's from INTs and fumble recovery's by using the quickness attribute as MS for those returns. As of now INT returns for a TD are a very rare occurrence in TSB, which is unfortunate given that they are fairly common in real life. This adds a little bit more risk to the JJ and CC offensive strategy.
     
    Player 2 Conditions Fix:

    This is a minor hack; it fixes an apparent bug in the orig rom that shows the attributes of player 2's players incorrectly. Does not affect gameplay.

    A lot has already been said on the subject.  Despite all the reactions and opinions, not every tournament organizer out there is going to fall in line with hopes of avoiding the dates of other events.  I think it's ultimately up to the individual organizers out there to communicate with other regional organizers, and see if they are agreeable to a compromise on timing of events.
     
    War Machine contacted me before Thunderdome as I was looking to do another online tournament in the fall, and after talking with him, it made sense to hold off, so that's exactly what I did.  His communication was perfect, and an example of thoughtful and effective negotiation of the issue.
     
    Ultimately, it's up to each organizer to decide how they want to do things.  Hopefully folks stay diplomatic along the way.

Hank strikes fast in the 2nd half to close the deficit to 10 points, 17-7 MIN. I answer back with a time consuming drive which ends in a TD, 24-7 MIN. Hank throws another called play INT.

    I think I'm a little late to the party in commenting but here goes.
     
    I live in Louisiana so for me to play top tier talent I have to travel, most times great distances. So I think placement of tournaments geographically does matter. I ran 3 tournaments in my home town and had a max of 18 participants but no less than 12. At my tournaments everyone had a chance to win something because I had built onto the tournament format a consolation bracket for the less talented players. So if you didn't win your group you would be seeded in the consolation bracket which didn't offer a cash prize but had trophies for 1st and 2nd place while the more "elite" players played for cash along with trophies. I did it this way knowing that new/inexperienced players would be turned off by getting beat badly by the better players. The consolation bracket allowed them to compete with players on a similar level and they'll get some enjoyment of having a chance to win along with experience and possibly return. It was a success and to be honest those consolation games were extremely exciting, maybe even more so than the "elite" bracket games.  So i think consolation bracket could be huge in increasing the anount of players wjo attend. I know it was a bit off the original subject, but just felt like I needed to mention that. I know Dave has gotten interest in a consolation bracket at Madison, I will help run a side/consolation bracket if I am able to attend Madison next spring.
     
     
    We were fortunate enough that @davefmurray brought Tecmo Dallas this past August which included @regulator088 @joeygats @Ones11fahzu @ImFlo among others which made it, at least in my mind, a premiere event. 
     
    Lastly, the dates of tournaments do matter for me since the long distances I have to travel. I would love to attend Tundra Bowl but it's date is the same as Tecmo Texas which is much closer. The tournament that end up being within a few weeks of each other is a challenge for me as well. I can't attend multiple tournament within a month or 2, it's just not logistically possible for me not to mention the cost to travel. There are tournaments i still plan to attend eventually such as Tundra Bowl, Tomzcak Bowl, Tecmo Lincoln to name a few but I'm just not sure when. My only hope is that the organisers of those tournaments continue to put them on so i can have a chance at attending.
