Don “Furluge” Scherig’s Beginner Trial Results

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.

Player Date
Sonic &

Ms.
Pac-Man
Star
Force
LoZ
LTTP
Don "Furluge" Scherig 13OCT2014 7 Acts 13,600 113,600 9:19

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.

Don and Abe Next Up in Old-Schooled Season 1

Abraham ForosanThe 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!

Tramell “GeneralRoxus” Lowry’s Beginner Trial Results

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 "General Roxus" Lowry 22SEP2014 2 Acts 5,970 75,900 26:15

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.

The Old-Schooled League Season 1 Has Begun

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.
