Chicago, IL SNES Satellite Tournament 12-30-2019 7PM

Recommended Posts

I'm creating its own topic for stat tracking and updates so far.

We are holding a SNES tournament December 30th at Dmen Tap in Chicago, IL.  For those of you familiar with The Retro Sports Gamer crew, this is their typical Monday night retro games throw down location.  If you can't make it to the tournament, we'd love to have you tune into the stream on their Youtube Channel.

Buy in is $10, winner gets free entry into Modano Mo Problems in Minneapolis February 29th 2020.  All funds collected will be added to the prize pool of the Retro Sports League Championship Tournament January 4th, also at Dmen Tap.

We are following the same team selection method used in Edge tournaments, which is tier based.

"Rules : 5 minute periods, penalties on, no offside, manual goalie.  If it's in the game, it's in the game.  No game mechanics are banned.  Examples are pass shots, CB checks, hail mary shots, goalie interference goals, rebound goals on penalty shots, etc.    A coin flip winner will be the home team(player 1) and call the tier for team selection.  The opposing player is the away team(player 2) and chooses which team they want based on the tier selected.  You may select from within or below the tier specified.    Example: Player 1 selects Tier 2.  That removes DET, BUF, CHI, VAN, MTL from selection in that matchup.  Player 1 chooses CGY, Player 2 selects BOS.   Player 1 and Player 2 may not play as the same team.  NEW THIS YEAR: You must take a different team in the selected tier each time.  You are only permitted to repeat a team selection once you have used the other teams within that tier an equal number of times. (Exception to this rule if player 2 has selected the last remaining team available for player 1 in said tier, another team may be selected that was already used by player 1) This process resets between group play and the playoffs."


SNES Tiers:








We're anticipating between 10-16 players for this tournament.  All we ask is that if you plan on coming that you RSVP with me directly via PM or on this thread.

Congrats to Mort on his victory Monday night, winning free entry into Modano Mo Problems!

This was a very exciting time featuring some hardcore retro gamers, and some players from the next generation.

We competed with 10 players, ultimately originally expecting about 16, but that didn't diminish the quality of games we witnessed!  Below are the teams that were selected by each player throughout the tournament.

Here are the results of the Swiss Style Group play:

Here are the results of the  bracket.  Each bracket game was single elimination until the semi-finals.  The scores reported in semi and finals are game won results, not score of the games.

Here are the stream links.  There were two live feeds as the Internet went down briefly during the stream.  This was streamed off of Mort's laptop in Chicago, sort of their default setup for Monday night get gatherings.

@smozoma results posted above for huge shifts in the SNES world rankings, as this was a highly prestigious tournament.  if @mort1237 isn't ranked #1 overall after this, I will file a formal complaint to the board of inquiry.
