  1. 2017 NHL'94 bud of the year!

    Bud of the year doesn’t go well with persistent drama. I think you are often right, but it is part popularity contest. Right??? I have no idea what @slapshot67 did but thanks anyway! Edit: I didn’t realize we were talking about the runner up list. Plabax for runner up!
  2. How'd You get your name

    I feel like zeppelin55 is pretty obviously an old AOL name from 1996. It is the band and 55 which I think was my jersey number at the time. As for actual names, my parents couldn’t agree on a name, or they hadn’t picked one yet. Unfortunately for them, I was 5 weeks early. At the hospital, my dad runs into an old acquaintance Dewey Hodges. He was also at the hospital having a son, my dad asks what they are naming him? He responds, “Kyle David.” My dad liked the name. It kinda helps he was named David. Kinda. Last month a coworker comes up to me to tell me that his friend Kyle Hodges just had a kid days before me. He didn’t know the story, but knew we shared the same birthday (his brothers as well). As for the newborn, Ozzie is just an excellent name. My wife was very worried that I liked it too much since my taste is generally abstract and obscure.

    I will play. I can't promise my play will be good with a newborn and wife yelling at me, but I'll probably have a decent amount of non working time in the winter anyway.
  4. 2017 Fall Classic

    I'd like to see @kingraphon the waiting list! @Premium didn't win many classics for reasons unrelated to his actual ability. He doesn't have to prove himself in anyway,

    The problem is even a bit harder than that in my estimation. There is a chance that even if you win the faceoff the skater occasionally bobbles it leading to a turnover (how my loss to AJ happened in Ko94 in OT :-(; it is a disaster because everyone moves into offensive position! ) That would lower the chances of routinely getting a 7 second goal.

    Some of the rosters are much smaller than others. If you look in the instruction booklet you can see them listed. I believe the expansion teams have what looks to be about half the players of some other teams.

    Does the 5/4 shot exist?
  9. First Round Calibre Players (Weight Bug)

    Having read this trifle of a thread, I agree with FPB. I don't see how Gartner can be ranked so highly by Plabax and have Modano so much lower. IMO his modano rating is fine but Gartner is way too high. It seems to me Plabax prefers righties to the point that he minimizes Bure's greatness.
  10. NHL'94 speed runs

    So I can easily score consistently in 7 seconds using save states so I could get the record to 70 seconds of game time or 1:10. What that means in real time I don't know. The 2,3 second shot I may have only seen once or twice, and by accident. I've never personally, I don't think, done a 5 second goal. I have done the 6 second with a pass shot. Maybe it was 5. The only reason I did it was desperation though. In a speed run, with save states it could be a could way to go about it. If you are using save states, I'm pretty sure you can win every faceoff. Oh and as for Aqua's question with the deke, I don't think it can be done in 6 seconds. 7 for a regular shot.

  13. How online leagues work... I've been here for years, and I barely know! We play using Gens, kailerra and generally hamachi to provide an IP. So the classic league is not running this spring, but the other leagues are kinda more you gotta find who runs it and get in. You need to get a test game before to show you know how to setup the game for online play. We also have a discord channel now. Don't really know how to get you there other than it is #nhl94 I think.

    Hate plablegs. will play whatever. That isn't an option.
