    New York, NY - 01/26/19 - Rumble in the Bronx! - Bronx Bowl 2019

    Details on the format and team selection for Bronx Bowl: https://northeasttecmo.com/format-nyc/ Format Bronx Bowl 2019 Format Group play will include 4 players in each group playing one another in round-robin format. Groups will be formed based on skill level with seasoned veterans and former tourney winners in the same groups with newer guys in other groups. The tournament will then move to a team draft based on a lottery system explained below. Team Selection: Group Play: One player randomly chooses a matchup card from the deck of Matchup Cards. Afterwards, a coin is flipped. Winner of the coin toss gets first player and chooses either the team they wish to be or the controller they wish to use. Team Selection: Bracket Play: Team selection for bracket play will be a team draft. It will consist of a lottery with a choice. Draft order is decided by number of wins. The first player will draw team names out of a hat corresponding to the number of wins he achieved in bracket play. That player may choose one of the teams to use for the duration of the tournament. If that player does not like the team(s) drawn, he can pull out one more team at random but must use that team. A sample scenario: Starting the Draft: Barry wins three games in group play. This means he gets to pull three teams out of a hat. He draws: Minnesota, Cleveland, New Orleans. He can choose which of the three teams he wants. The best team he chose is Minnesota, which he can decide to keep, or choose one more team from the hat, but MUST stick with that team. He decides to risk the picks and draws Denver. He must use Denver for the rest of the tournament. That team is now Barry’s and is removed from the drawing. After all of the three game winners have picked: Jerry won two games in group play. He picks two teams: Atlanta and San Diego. He could decide to choose another team, but opts to stick with San Diego. After all the three and two game winners have picked: Jackson won one game in group play. He draws one team (Cardinals). He decides to risk picking again knowing that after the three and two win players have selected, a couple of better teams are still in play. He draws the Buccaneers. All of the winless players: Lawrence did not win any games in group play. He picks a team out of the hat and is stuck with that team the rest of the tournament. He draws the Cardinals and must keep them. (Depending on the number of registrants, some of the best/worst teams (e.g.- San Fran, Indy) may be removed from the draft. If the number of registrants exceeds 28, then there will be two separate drafts for each side of the bracket, with the winner of each playing in one final showdown!)

    Best and Worst Teams on TSB SNES / Sega

    On the NES, in Man vs. Man matchups, HP does not matter. It goes by the number of taps of the Man player. You can popcorn Com defenders with someone like Heyward or Okoye. So in that respect, it does something, but when you face off against a Man defender, it doesn't.

    It's my birthday

    Happy belated birthday! Mine was this past Friday. Sadly I didn't get to play any Tecmo that day. I like to practice running with slow QBs because I never want any QB to become one-dimensional. Being confident enough to pick up a few yards with Marino or DeBerg can go a long way in those matchups.

    @Nameless Loser Parking in the area is mostly free street parking unless it's along Broadway which I think is metered during the day. There is also a new strip mall behind the bar with a BJ's and a Buffalo Wild Wings and there is usually parking there. I've had friends park there without a problem. It's right along the 1 train, which you can get at Penn Station and take uptown to the second to last stop, W 238th Street. I think we will be good with the CRTs for this one, but if you drive, having a spare never hurt!

    @stuball44 Thanks! The Equalizer format is mostly a model for now. In theory, 28 players would be ideal because that means every team would be taken. If less, we were discussing taking out a few teams (either really good like the Niners or bad like the Colts). If we do, however, exceed the number of teams that are possible to draft because we get above 30 people, my thought was to have one side of the bracket draft and the other side of the bracket draft separately so that two guys with the same team don't play against each other. We'll have a better sense of the number of participants a couple of days before and will adjust accordingly. We'll announce the official draft/lottery format in the next week or so. We want to test it a few times to see if the format works.

    Running Plays vs. the COM Late in Season

    @BDN Are you talking about Run 2 T Power Dive? What happens if your offensive line is made up of scrubs? I abandoned the runs up the middle early in the season because the DL was getting to my RB just as he was being handed the ball. I can try again, but maybe I will try something like FB Offtackle L. While gaining yards with a crappy QB in the passing game isn't much better, it's worth the risk since you can pull off big chunks of yards. Getting a run of 10+ yards is a rarity.
  11. The COM starts getting juiced if you rattle off 4-5 wins at the beginning of the season. That means a precipitous drop in an ability to run the ball well. I am currently using my "Worst Team" rom in which all my RBs like Kenneth Davis and Leroy Hoard have a starting MS of 25. I'm finding it almost impossible to run the ball. However, I noticed that the "money" run plays like the Run & Shoot Sweep R (Run 3) seem to be no more effective than other runs. In fact, I think the R&S Sweep L is a little more consistent in gaining a few yards when the COM is juiced. Do you know of any other plays that are good to use against the COM late in the season?

    8-8 Season

    Attached is the rom I used. I am sure that my own playing style might affect the teams as well. I noticed the Eagles had one of the best rushing offenses. I am a much better passer than runner, so maybe that is why the gap isn't so big. Also, original playbooks might affect the potential of some of these teams. Tchmosbo.smc TCHMOSBO.srm

    8-8 Season

    Ya know, I don't know what my motivation was. I was 22-23 at the time and still living with my parents. Emulation was still pretty new to me at that time, so when I would get home from work, I would play Tecmo on the computer for a couple of hours to unwind. Somewhere in there I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could play every game of the season. To guarantee that, I believe I picked every home team (it's even distributed P1 and P2 in SNES Tecmo). I then realized that would mean each team would be 8-8 and thought it would be cool to see what would happen. I figured it was by point differential, but wanted to see for myself. One neat fact: All playoff teams had positive point differential. All non-playoff teams had negative. Dallas was #1 (no surprise) and the Eagles and Rams were both barely above with plus-5. Perhaps if I went back and did it again, I would use similar playbooks for all teams.

    Worst Players in Tecmo

    @keithisgood Thanks to the link for the Ultimate Tecmo Challenge! I didn't realize there was a rom attached to it (the facebook post didn't load). I created my own team based on what @SBlueman and @Knobbe suggested but probably should have tried yours first! I loaded all the Tecmo scrubs onto the Cardinals. Why the Cardinals? According to the TSB FAQ, they have the hardest schedule based off the 1991 calendar. I figured going up against the Giants and Eagles twice (Cowboys are no slouch either) and the AFC Central with Houston, Cincy, and a stalwart Pittsburgh defense might be part of the reason why. So far I am 3-0, but have let off at least one absurd run per game, including a WR reverse TD to Washington WR Gary Clark. I have experimented with the playbooks some though it's pretty close to what my actual playbook is in most MAN games. Leroy Hoard got injured early in my first game, so Sammy Winder has taken up a lot of the slack on the ground. Checking player conditions is VITAL. Winder has been great since he's been hovering around Good/Excellent so far, as has Mike Dyal. It's still early in the season, so Tecmo Juice mode hasn't quite hit full steam. I'm sure there's a really tight game coming up.
