  1. Sad indeed. He was always one of those guys who I came to like because of Tecmo. Does anyone have an updated list? Also, not sure why I posted a smiley face next to Kent Hull from years ago. Must have been before emojis were a thing.
  2. Teams that went undrafted: Chicago, San Diego, Denver, Tampa Bay, Washington, New Orleans Teams removed from the draw: San Francisco, Indianapolis
  3. Thanks to everyone who came out to the first ever Bronx Bowl! The top finishers were: 1) Bo O (@oklahoma) 2) Chris B (@Barletti) 3) Matt D (@MattyD) 4) Patrick B (@PatrickB1008) There were some crazy draws overall. Here was the full draft order: When it was their time to draft, players with 6 pts got to pull three teams, players with 4 pts two teams, players with two points one team. You then had to choose which of the teams from the ones you drew that you wanted. If you didn't want any, you got one more pick, but you had to stick with that pick. Here's the results. Scroll to the right to see the bracket: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13y4MsqzgIhcWqrbbBav9hLl9ObspxMas675H0sITdfk/edit?usp=sharing I'll post my recap soon. In the meantime, check out the Facebook page for photos: https://www.facebook.com/NYTecmo/ Congrats to Bo and thanks again to everyone for coming out!
  4. 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!)
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. @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!
  8. @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.
  9. Tourney Info and Signup is up on www.northeasttecmo.com Thanks @Deviled Greg!
  10. Thanks! I will try to follow along tomorrow's action. I am talking it over with some others on how we can tweak it to optimize for our players.

  12. @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.
