After a long hiatus were are now ready to start signups for another season of the Old-Schooled League. With a new season comes changes and updates to the format so head on over to the rules and format page to get a heads up everything that will be new to this season. If you’re ready to join follow the instructions on how to join and send me an email with the needed information. I’m looking to get a minimum of 8 players before we begin the final round. I’ll announce more about start times once we’ve got enough sign-ups.
Missed the last season? Here’s the finale from last season.

The Crystalis for Change livestream has come and gone. Sadly results were much less than expected. If you enjoyed the broadcast and would still like to donate you can here.
I am happy to announce that on March 3rd, 2017 at Noon Eastern Time on twitch.tv/furluge will be hosting a charity live-stream with all the proceeds going to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. As some sharp-eyed viewers of the channel may have noticed the Twitch.tv channel has recently topped over 300 followers so we’ll be doing a marathon stream to celebrate and raising as much money as we can for the Foodbank in the process. We will still of course also be broadcasting at youtube.com/furluge and the discord channel will be up at discord.gg/vs8PV for anyone who would like to chime in for any words of encouragement for what is expected to be a 10-15 hour session. In the unlikely event Crystalis is finished too early it will be followed up by Crystalis on the Game Boy Color.
Our donation goal for this charity drive will be $1,000. Live on stream we will be holding prize drawings for Steam wallet codes when 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% of the $1000 donation goal is reached. Anyone who donates will be entered into the drawing. Previous winners will be removed from later drawings except for the 100% donation goal drawing which will be available to all previous donors regardless of previously winning.

With the intermediate round over the final showdown between the top two players has taken place in the expert round in a best three our of five challenges. The results are in and here they are. Thank you very much for everyone who played this season and we’ll be looking at creating a great experience for next season.
Season 1 Champion
With the last result tallied the Intermediate round of Season 1 comes to a close. Nick Skogstad and Don Scherig will be facing off in the expert round. Good luck.
On August 8th, 2015 Sebastien took on the four challenges of the Old-Schooled Intermediate round. Here’s how he did.
Sebastien came in and gave it his all on his run, but the convoluted paths in Metroid and the difficulty of the other challenges proved to much for him, putting an end to his Old-Schooled hopes for this season. We look forward to seeing him back again in Season 2. The twitch video of the run can be viewed by clicking the date link above.
On July 25th, 2015 Nick took on the four challenges of the Old-Schooled Intermediate round. Here’s how he did.
Nick logged the best time seen so far, logging a full game completion in Metal Storm and three game completions in Contra before he chose to stop his run. The twitch video of the run can be viewed by clicking the date link above.
