Preliminary OG ROM Tournament idea (TPC)

Postby MattyD » Fri Dec 11, 2015 5:25 pm

I was thinking today about having a TPC tournament next Friday night into Saturday (12/18) to (12/19) for the OG ROM. Just curious as to who would play in it. I would like to get 16 + participants at the very least. Single elimination.


Edit: Once we reach 16 I will make the brackets. Seeding will be based off of sign-up time.

Thanks


So far:

1. Carnage
2. Justin Peters
3. War Machine
4. TSBGOD
5. Coconuts
6. Prime/ Vince Green
7. Suicideking
8. Clark Hamilton
9. DT
10. Diaz

So you're saying it should be okay to lurch, run with WRs, and you're free to pick whomever you want?

I'll post the rules once we have everyone signed up. But, yeah, they will be Madison rules. I am not sure what other rules there would even be at this point lol

I don't understand this. Madison rules are what 99% of tournaments use. If Madison rules aren't used what's the point of using the OG rom?

If its not Madison rules I probably withdraw my name from the sign up.

Exactly, that's why I was taken aback. I believe Tomczak and one or two other tourneys use a different team selection, otherwise it's Madison rules. Matt already said it'd be Madtown rules, which I'm glad for. Live tourney season is upon us, so why deviate from the norm?

Not all of us are live players....I will be down for whatever....YUK. I figured CARNAGE would be a leader, not a follower and spin some of his own rules. :)

LMAO! JERK! Frank the only rule I got is to spank DAT A$$. ;)


No worries about the game play rules peeps. Madison is the golden standard we will use and people always use. My main goal in what I am trying to do down the line is get (or try to) get people involved to do tri-monthly tournaments and possibly down the line having everyone contribute 2 bucks or something for trophies (1st, 2nd, 3rd). I do not want ANYONE spending more than 5 bucks, though. (Much like a live tournament, but played online) This idea is in the future...for now it is free and I will ask people if they are interested in going down that road at a later date.

I think that TPC needs a revival. And, I believe online tournaments with trophies will catch on if done correctly. There has never been a solid tournament online where we had everyone (good, bad, ugly Tecmoers) participate throughout the community and I hope that in a couple of months we can do that.


It is really up to the people, though. I think that if we get more involved with tournaments online---people will get more enthusiastic about playing online.

Hey Gary. I would say to not post it yet---only because I want to make sure we have 16 to proceed. Thank you, though. I also sent you a message on the site (Tecmoworld)

Thats funny because I was thinking similarly last night about something like this. I was thinking it would be cool to have like a World Series of Online Tecmo where theres 3-5 online tourneys of different styles (Even Rom, CULT, etc) and then finish off with a big Main Event OG ROM double elimination. Similar to the poker world series with player of the year leaderboard and small prizes. Obviously thats a tall task with the state of online at the moment but would be cool.

I think what youre doing is great and would be nice to try and build some excitement back into online. Let me know if you need help with anything.

We are just telepathic because we live close. I think we should get together and maybe run some idea's off each other. I think online Tecmo needs something new, fun and worth something. (Something on the line) I think interest is waning because the excitement factor. We need to come up with an idea that is short, concise, to the point and has good competition. We will chat on AIM, or something. Maybe could be the start of a new type of atmosphere.

My tournament will kick off in January. I believe it will be #6 of even teams rom tournament. I like Carnages idea though. I am down for whatever to get Tecmo going again.

Just make sure people do not quit!

I think at this point I am more worried about people even signing up for these things. What is so strange to me is I hear everywhere "Online is mundane, people are dropping off"....yet very little try to actually work together and solve the problem. If we want things to continue...we all need to get together and work towards making online a fun, competitive atmosphere again. If people love it..they will tell others...who will join..who will like it..who will tell others etc.


It has clicked for me. I like online and live. I just like Tecmo. I am only 27..I know i am on the younger end, but I want this to continue for awhile longer. We are at a pace now where in 3-5 years the future isn't looking good. Just an honest observation.


People want competition, they want something to look forward to and get excited about.

And, also--despite this being a 20+ year old video game. The fact that Madison regularly has 256 participants a year screams that people have interest still. The issue? Families, jobs etc. It needs to be a main event type of tournament once a year maybe held online much like a Madison type of deal. If word gets out we have a huge online tournament it may bring in more "unknowns." I know have a couple of friends in their mid 30's who love Tecmo, but never play because of family time and work.

I am sure that old timers who have dropped off over the years' would do a month long type of tournament to truly declare who is the best online. That is my eventual plan---Having a huge online tournament for money and prizes down the line....We will obviously run into people who turbo, lag games etc. But, the fee will not be that much--Plus we can finally coin a "best online."

For the tournament listed you can play your games any time Friday/Friday night into Saturday/Saturday night. So, two days. 16 people. IF we even get that amount.

For the other idea's...up in the air..going to talk to War Machine and a couple others.

All good. War and I are trying to come up with a good game plan for something if this doesn't work out.
