  1. Ah yes, the famous DPS, who's name is as widely known as Regulator, Joeygats, Mort, Ruble, SonofPatBeach, KingSoby, The Vogts, and Bruddog. How could have I been so short sighted? Was awesome having you bud.

Payout is directly tied to number of entrants, and total entry fees collected. Approximately 2/3 of entry fees collected are paid out in prize pools. Example : 40 players prepay before cutoff and pay $20. Rounding to the nearest dollar the prize pool would be $528. 1st $264/2nd $132/3rd $79/4th $53. Additional collectable prizes will be available to win. Players may also RSVP our Facebook event https://tinyurl.com/tecmofullnelson Rules: 1. Tier list for group play. 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. All substitutions of any player in any position is LEGAL. 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 LEGAL. 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. He will decide all disputes as he is not a competitor in this event. 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. MARQUEE MATCHUP STREAM - https://www.twitch.tv/tgfnretro This professional live coverage will be voiced and broadcasted by Troy GBLAN, organizer and voice of the GBLAN Online Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament. Troy will be showcasing the best players this tournament has to offer from opening kickoff until the champion is crowned! I encourage everyone to check out tgfnretro on Twitch and follow as they cover Tecmo events all over the country. THE PLAYER’S STREAM: - https://www.youtube.com/theretrosportsgamer Have you ever wanted to be a commentator at a Tecmo Tournament? Maybe you just want to cut a wrestling promo Tecmo style? This is your opportunity! This stream will be run by The Retro Sports Gamer teams. The goal of this stream is to capture the natural essence of the tournament and get as many unique players on stream as possible. Want to play on stream? Just ask! We will do our best to broadcast your game next. Players that register and can't make the tournament with at least one week notice will be fully refunded. Dallaire Realty has stepped up as a pizza sponsor, so free pizza is awesome.. Currently the Edge VR Arcade is working on securing a beer license. I've been assured that in the unlikely event that this doesn't happen, we will be able to bring our own and do a beer swap. This worked very well during the NHL94 tournament we ran there back in February.
  3. A full recap of Full Nelson is posted on Tecmoworld with pictures and video links. http://tecmoworld.com/viewtopic.php?f=1557&t=47987
  4. Wish I could hang with you guys this time. My wife will be gone all day Saturday, so I'll be watching the stream. @Darth RockMan you did a nice job with your stream last year.
  5. edit: This tournament timeline is confirmed. Tecmo will be on February the 22nd(Friday night), NHL94 the 23rd.(morning through late afternoon/early evening) I will edit this post in the coming days and weeks to include the necessary details regarding Tecmo. I'll include a link to the NHL94.com page for those interested in NHL94. in that post as well. I was told via Mort that Beef Juice was targeting the first weekend in March, so we shouldn't be in conflict. I unfortunately have no direct method of contacting him short of originally tagging him in this post. Original post: "Things are in the works for our annual NHL94 tournament in Green Bay. Past activities the night before have included a Tecmo Super Bowl tournament to entertain those coming in from out of town, or those that cannot travel for Tecmo, or simply don't like NHL94. Our target date is February 23rd for the NHL94 event. I'm posting this now so hopefully @Beef Juice and whomever else is involved with the Tomczak Bowl can hopefully avoid the same weekend as us as happened this past February, and some players had to make a tough choice as to which event to attend. As we are working towards bringing in some 3rd parties again, this was the date that worked for them. After we firm up some details with the venue we will make a more formal announcement." Testing additional characters.
  6. Glad it's working out for both parties. Best of luck on your tournament!
  7. Post edited as Tecmo tournament date of Feb 22nd in Green Bay is confirmed. Format/details to come in the coming days/weeks ahead. We have some time, but wanted to get the date out there to avoid conflicts with other tournaments.
  8. @Knobbe whatever was causing me grief is no longer doing so. I was able to edit the original post and I seem to be able to add lines and what not. Perhaps my browser was misbehaving. Thanks, -T
  9. Hey Knobbe, at work but will take a look later. Thanks for the response. It was on the original post, not the subsequent ones. I do know what you mean though, it requires a brief pause in between additional posts. If I can't edit it, I'll hit you up.

    William Wallace: Yes, I've heard. Defeats Tecmo players by the hundreds. And if he were here, he'd consume the tournament with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his arse. I can understand the confusion. I met the People's Champ at the Hardcore Tecmo Championship in Chicago, and he must have said Nostradamus at least 20 times. Congrats to Mort. He certainly seemed to be on another level when I saw him on stream. Much thanks to @noonanstreaming the action all day.
  11. 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.

    The big thing is setting up you router for hosting, not the emulator so much. I've helped dozens in the community get this setup, so I'm happy to help, but best to do it from your home location. Just message me some contact information and I'll gladly reach out to assist.
  14. Did a recap with Tom the Retro Sports Gamer over the weekend, along with the TPC run by Mort.
  15. Thanks for coming! Hopefully next time we draw more from the usual suspects.
  16. Thank you to all who came out and/or watched the stream this weekend! With being gone a significant part of the weekend for setup/tear down, and of course running the event. I haven't had the opportunity to put together a proper recap. I am currently working extra hours this week. I do promise a proper recap within a week or so. For those of you that are friends with me on Facebook, I think you got the basic idea through the photos we uploaded throughout the day. Yes there was a mistake on my end that was corrected the very next day regarding payouts. There was no malicious intent, and i'm glad we got that rectified right away. The no shows were obviously disappointing. A mix of no communication, same day communication, some excuses being 100% legit, the others simply prioritizing some other activity over the tournament. It's easily the most no shows we've ever had proportionately. Yes a game 7 NLCS was a part of the equation with this, something we didn't anticipate when the date was chosen. The silver lining was that more rounds of Swiss were possible, so that meant more games for everyone there, as we didn't have to wait for a 2nd set of games per round to finish the Swiss round. Ultimately, every single player played at least 7 games. Nelson79 was 1st, Tom Stanke 2nd, Timpai 3rd, DPS was 4th. Ahman Green was a late show participant, and we didn't know that was happening until moments before he arrived. He was very nice, and won a game on stream. Hopefully he attends future tournaments, including Tundra Bowl. He seemed to have a nice time. Despite being one of the no shows, our sponsor Dallaire Realty still stepped up and provided pizza to the attendees. We gave away 3 Gamerztek consoles, and a signed TSB NES Cartridge(signed by Ahman) The format was well received by those there save one.(Sorry Gats) I have no preference, it's just something different than what's typically out there, and there seems to be a demand for it. We had a number of new players that really enjoyed it. Thanks to Tom for his additional stream coverage, including games of NHL94 and Mortal Kombat I and II after the tournament. No one took AJ93 or my money in the challenges. That's all I have time for right now. We had a ton of fun, and I look forward to the next time we can put something together. -Trojan
  17. Doors open at 10AM, still slots open for signup. Looking forward to the action all day long!
  18. If you missed our conversation last night on Facebook live, here it is. Despite us saying so to the contrary, Michael Joyce from Player 2 Arcade Bar will in attendance. We talk about the format, the competitors in play thus far, and answer some questions from chat.
  19. Will be going live about 8:30 CST tonight to discuss Full Nelson, A Hardcore Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament! Join us live! Follow our Facebook page for the alert! https://www.facebook.com/Green.Bay.LAN/
  20. Those that do not qualify for the money bracket will still have something to compete for! The Gamerztek 8 Bit HD is a great no fuss, top loading NES solution that works with your hdtv over hdmi, or on your CRT via composite analog inputs. The winner of the consolation bracket will take on of these consoles home. The controllers included are very nice!
  21. Currently up to 32 on the RSVP, just a handful of days away. This would be our largest Tecmo event ever if this is even close to the actual turnout! Considering most of the players coming aren't our "usual suspects", this is very encouraging!
  22. To make it official, I'm upping the ante. I'm offering a $50 prize to any tournament participant, who can knock me off at mk1 or mk2(must be random select) during the Full Nelson weekend!
