  1. @bruddog How are your Power Rankings calculated? Looks like my SOS was the weakest. 😂 I guess that's what happens when I draw the lowest and the third lowest. What about the 28 point cap?
  2. Thanks to all who came out to participate this year and thanks to all who watched the tournament on this year's stream! Congrats to Kevin @tadaos for winning his second NY Tecmo title in three years! This is only the second time we have ever had a repeat Champion, @MattyD being the first in 2013 & 2014. The top finishers were: 1) Kevin S (tadaos) 2) Leif P (@Nameless Loser) 3) Erik M (@arncoem) 4) Matt D (Matty D) You can see the official results for the day here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pbDN3izYb_KmQZhWtn4AUB31JR6bD41MRAq2PitYwHc/edit#gid=1113694182 Rounding out the top eight were Danny K (@knightsof3), Greg L (@Deviled Greg), Scott S, and Josh N. Four different players finished in the top 8 this year from last year! The raffle prize winners were Tom C (twice), Matt A, Greg L, and last year's champ Dave H (@Ranatoro). Other T-Borg members in attendance were: @deadfaulkner, @dwightstone, @PatrickB1008, @Thrash @discdolo @Barletti. Special thanks again to Ryan @hoigaard, Patrick, Matt, Erik, and Greg for all the extra work they put into making the tournament happen. Another big time Championship matchup with Bills-Giants this year. Congrats to Leif for making his first ever final after years of very excellent play! Overall, this was a very competitive tournament from top to bottom. Thank you all again for making Tecmo even better! Be sure to sign up for CT Tecmo XI and Bronx Bowl 2020 for more hot Tecmo action!
  3. Format Bronx Bowl 2020 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 to choose 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. NY Tecmo is only four weeks away!! Here's the first of the raffle prizes, 18 x 12 cover art canvas print
  6. We did a draft where the new guys drafted first, and then players who played in tournaments before drafted. We ordered it based on tournament experience and results. Matty D got the last pick in both conferences (Colts and Packers). Yes, it is crazy that in the two drafting tournaments this year that the Packers have been Champs. It's a testament to how good those players are. Also, IMO, the Packers are the best out of the crap teams. I think of them as a lesser version of the Falcons (with the bonus of Bob Nelson).
  7. Thanks to all who came out to the Long Island Retro Tournament! This is the third year that we've had a tournament at the Cradle of Aviation Museum and the 4th year at the Expo! The top finishers for the tournament are: 1) Matty D 2) Brett F 3) Pat H Scott S, Danny K, and Bill M all made the quarters. Brett F., finishing second, was the best performing newcomer, so he'll get free admission to the New York Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament on October 19th. Special thanks to George, Chris, and Joel at LI Retro allowing us to do this for the past four years. The finals were exciting and the Pat H victory over Matty D in OT was especially nailbiting. Special props to Pat H for taking both his teams (CLE, ATL) to the semi-finals. You can check out photos here: https://www.facebook.com/NYTecmo/ Thanks again to the NHL 94 crew for sharing this experience with us and helping out when we needed it. Special thanks to NHL 94 guru John for participating in his first Tecmo tournament (!), and my personal friend John and his son for helping set up and break down. On a personal note, this was the first time I didn't play in a tournament I have run. It was definitely a different experience, but still had a lot of fun. I played in NHL 94 again and finished in the top 8. Every NHL94 tournament I have ever played I have finished in the top 8, but no better, no worse. As for people curious about the format, we had 16 participants (8 of whom were new) where each person drafted two teams, one AFC and one NFC. The new guys all drafted first with the veterans drafting in descending order based on tournament experience and success. Since there are only 28 teams, a few teams (HOU, RAI, GIA, PHI) were allowed to be drafted twice. @[email protected]@Thrash
  8. I know what I'm streaming all day today: http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/tool-catalog-now-available-via-digital-service-providers/
  9. One of these days we'll be able to afford the Tecmo party bus to shuttle people to these tournaments. LIRR kinda goes out to the area. If you can get into Penn Station and take LIRR out, it's about a $10 cab ride to the venue from the station. I might be able to convince someone to do a pickup from the station. I think the Shaq Fu tournament is more thought of as a fun joke. I also want to put in a plug for the NHL94 tournament as those guys do an excellent job of running it. Highly recommended.
  10. Hey @hankthetank! We had 32 last year and usually average around 30-40 competitors. First place is usually around $200-250 though last year I put a little more of the raffle money to the top 3 so it might have been over $300 for first. Cheap places to stay depends on how close/far you are willing to stay near the venue. You can post here to see if anyone will offer to host or wants a traveling buddy. 🙂
