  1. 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.
  2. What : Barry Melrose Place Weekend Tecmo , for NHL94 tournament details please visit here : tinyurl.com/barrymelroseplace When : February 22th, 2019, 7:00 PM(Tecmo), February 23, 2019, 10:00AM(NHL94) Where : Edge VR Arcade 2642 Packerland Dr, Green Bay, WI 54313 Cost : $20(Tecmo) or $50(both tournaments) via Paypal to [email protected] If also participating in our February 23rd. NHL94 tournament, it's only $10 to enter Tecmo. Format : Swiss followed by single elimination bracket. Prizes: Payouts to top 2 players will be made in a 65/35 for 1st and 2nd place respectively. Payout is directly tied to number of entrants, and total entry fees collected. Approximately 3/4 of entry fees collected are paid out in prize. Assuming 20 players collecting $400, $300 would be paid out $195 for first place, $105 for 2nd place. All entrants will be automatically entered to win a Gamerztek 8 Bit HD system. Register: send $20 via friends and family paypal.me/trojan1979, if also wanting to register for NHL94 please fill out our registration form https://tinyurl.com/2019NHL94. You are considered signed up once paid. 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.

  3. 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!

  8. 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!

    I wonder if that play in game was on the stream. It's been so long I don't remember. At least the results can be confirmed if something is missing, although it would involve combing through some footage.
  15. We are please to announce that the winner of this Tecmo Super Bowl tournament will earn free entry to Mort's Tecmo Players Championship, tentatively slated for April 6th, 2019 in Chicago Illinois. This is a $100 value, and up for grabs to the best player come February 22nd!
  16. We need more of this in our lives

    retrosportsgamer.net - Tecmo Tournament Stat Tracking

    The NHL94 community courtesy of Smozoma took the time to collect all known local player data from all tournaments that submitted said data to them. This data was used to formulate a local worldwide ranking.While it isn't a perfect system, it does help over time with the tournament seeding process. Over time the rankings do evolve and tend to self level based on performance against active players, not unlike a BCS system. Thanks for taking the initative with this.
  21. Our friends at Press Start Games have again stepped up to help sponsor the event weekend. We will be giving away 3 gift cards over the weekend thanks to them!

    Sorry for the double post. Mort's tournament posting just went live over on Tecmoworld. http://tecmoworld.com/viewtopic.php?f=1557&t=47992&fbclid=IwAR3JhgCIad4pmuRpzatdI9DUKCRkntt7kOttvocrO8LsvruE-jIkw3bDkEk

    A great job you did too! I was impressed with the increased Tecmo knowledge from one year to the next. @PunkyQB since this post it appears that Mort is going to in fact run his TPC event in Chicago April 13th. He stated he's not targeting anything large, and I do know there is much higher buy in($100). The idea is to build the pot quickly between a smaller of experienced and elite players, essentially skipping over the typical mismatches one might see in a seeded group play stage tournament. That being said, the number of games you play is more than 10(based on last time) so it's not a bad value. Chances are that I'll be involved on some level with it, either on the broadcast side of things, and perhaps in additional equipment. If you do decide to run something in the Madison area near the same time frame, chances are that I cannot attend it, but I'd be happy to lend a half dozen setups(game, controllers, console, cables, CRT) as long as you can come get them/bring back in a reasonable time frame.

    Not quite sure you read my last post correctly. No performance based comments were made or implied in my statement.

    Whatever ends up happening, let's hope all those that want a Tecmo experience in their area can continue to experience it. Best of luck in NYC.
