Sebastien “Slave2TheBox” Veland will be taking on the Old-Schooled challenge tomorrow November 17th at 6PM. Sebastien has previously participated in the 17th and 16th Old-Schooled tournaments where he placed 5th in both of the qualifying rounds. His best performance from the two tournaments was from the 17th tournament in Crack Down for the Sega Genesis where he came in 2nd place with a score of 61,900 points. Tomorrow we’ll see if his training has paid off enough to secure himself a spot in the Intermediate Round.
You can come see him play live at That Game Store in person or watch him on twitch.tv at Furluge’s and That Game Store’s channels! Since this is a live event and some setup time is needed the broadcast might not start until 6:30PM, so please be patient.
On October 26th, 2014 Abraham Forosan logged his trial for Season 1 of the Old-Schooled League at ThatGameStore when he took on the four challenges for the Beginner round. Here’s how he did.
Abraham was the first player this season to play Knuckes in the Sonic and Knuckles challenge and it appears to have worked against him as the last minute character change appears to have given him difficulty with the controls. His best performance of the night was Legend of Zelda where he speedily defeated the boss for a clear time of 15:34.
On October 13th, 2014 Don Scherig logged his trial for Season 1 of the Old-Schooled League at ThatGameStore when he took on the four challenges for the Beginner round. Here’s how he did.
Don ran out the clock on Sonic & Knuckles, running out of time right before finishing the Lava Reef Zone. He also was quite pleased to pick up Larios’ 50,000 point bonus in Star Force but he lost control of the game shortly after the Alpha target. Legend of Zelda was finished in a solid 9 minutes and 19 seconds. His worst performance of the night would be Ms. Pac-Man, as he professes to really dislike the game, making it difficult for him to put the practice time in for it.
The dates have been set for October’s events in Season 1 of the Old-Schooled league. Don will be facing the challenge on Monday 13Sep2014 at 6pm and Abe will be giving it his all Sunday 26Sep2014 at 3pm. Don is of course the league commissioner and he’s been practicing. Abe is an Old-Schooled league veteran and has participated in more Old-Schooled events than anyone else. He came in first on the lost 21st tournament after the Herzog Zwei debacle, he came in 2nd place on the 12th tournament, and 6th tournament, the first tournament to use a two-round structure and he was the first to face off against Evan in a final round. He is also the only current League player to have survived the dreaded Shaq-Fu challenge from the 4th tournament. He’s been around for most of the firsts of Old-Schooled, so it’s only fitting this veteran is here for the first season of the league!
Good luck to both of you this month. You can come see these events live at That Game Store in person or watch them on twitch.tv at Furluge’s and That Game Store’s channels!
On September 22nd, 2014 Tramell Lowry kicked off the Old-Schooled league at ThatGameStore when he took on the four challanges for the Beginner round of Season 1. Here’s how he did.
Tramell’s best performance of the night would be Star Force where Tramell had stated he had spent the most time practicing. His performance in Sonic & Knucles was good in Mushroom Hill Zone but sadly took a dive in the Flying Battery Zone with it’s difficulty spike. Where he had perhaps the most difficulty was with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past where it was his first time playing the game, leading to a lot of time spent learning the way the game played instead of advancing along at full speed. Next month we have Don “Furluge” Scherig and Abraham Forosan scheduled to take on the Beginner round where they’ll see if they can’t beat Tramell’s scores.
After a long Hiatus I am proud to announce that Old-Schooled is once again returning in the form of the Old-Schooled league. The Old-Schooled section of the site has been completely revamped including the new League Standings page with a list of all the current players in the league, the challenges they will be facing, and what their performance was after their trials. I would like to thank everyone who has signed up and I hope you we’ll get even more signups now that the league has started. To learn more about the league head over to the Old-Schooled page.
Tramell Lowry First Player to Accept the Challenge
For the very first trial we have Adam Vigilante scheduled for 22Sep2014. Tramell can currently be seen running most of the tournaments at ThatGameStore and on his youtube channel FightGameBros. Does Tramell have the retro gaming mettle to make it to the Expert round? Tune in to twitch.tv September 22nd at 6PM to find out.
