  1. When I went in 2016, I stayed in an air b&b in long island city. It was hit and miss like most redevelopment areas are. I was a block away from the subway and lucky enough for me chaos was willing to give me a lift deeper into long island. Staying anywhere in or near NYC will cost you a bundle. Your best bet is to room with someone and plan out your logistics ahead of time as they change dramatically depending on the airport. Ex: I arrived in Newark and departed from la Guardia. LIRR is your best bet away from the city, but it is far more expensive than the subway. You'll also need Ubers and other things away from the city, those expenses can pile up quickly. My best suggestion is to compare costs of staying in NYC and not. Just don't try to get too cute in the city and run things by the NYC guys in the forum as they will likely be able to help out with the nuances of your trip.
  2. I've been both of Troy's tournaments and have enjoyed myself throughly each time. The setup is always great, the organization is on point, and the production value is high. Troy always makes sure everyone is taken care of and I highly recommend attending his events. I plan on being there and playing in both tournaments. The NHL 94 is great and the side games are always something to behold. Tecmo super bowl, street fighter 2, and mortal Kombat 1 & 2 are popular side games. If you play Troy in any of those titles, bring your A+ game or prepare to take a beating. Looking forward to seeing the great lakes buds again.
  3. King of 94 Tournament - Feedback / Improvements

    This I think was my main/only real complaint. I would have loved a smozma type spreadsheet from the last big King of 94 event. I know all us stat junkies love that stuff. As a person who played 32 games that night, noticing anything that didn't take place on a tv screen was going to be a tall task. This is one way of saying how everything ran so smoothly from a tournament standpoint. 32 games and I never felt overwhelmed nor did I have too much downtime. The night just flowed perfectly despite having 5 less monitors than anticipated. I can't be any more positive about the flow of the tournament, it was incredible. Everyone I met was great to be around, no one with even so much as a hint of a bad attitude. Just a lot of passionate people looking to play a great game, I couldn't have asked for anything more. The stream from the fellas of Settle it on the Screen was another great addition to the atmosphere. The commentary from them, Mikey, Halifax, and Arda was always entertaining. I could occasionally hear a bit of it from my seat while playing a game and I had to catch myself from laughing out loud a few times. I largely agree with Coaches post on the rest of how I feel but I understand that efforts were made in some of the minus areas to no avail. Sometimes that happens, that said I still had an amazing time.
  4. Vegas Check In (Is everyone ok?)

    Hey bud, I certainly appreciate the concern. Coach and I left first thing Sunday morning. We both made it home safely after the long car ride.
  5. The AJ Situation

    Yes, keep attacking me and other members of the community. Just brilliant
  6. The AJ Situation

    You are right, this is trash. We are both capable of writing messages and neither of us have since Dec. 1
  7. 2016 NHL'94 Bud of the Year!

    Thank you Halifax bud, I'm deeply humbled by you awarding me bud of the year but I politely decline. This has been an incredible time for me personally in the 94 world, especially when considering all the live events Ive been able to attend. It has been a pleasure to spend time with buds ranging from the creator of the site to the newst of buds, especially those in Green Bay as Trojan headlined an amazing group of new 94 players. I dont take it lightly that people have welcomed me in three different countries and at times have opened up their homes to me in order for me to attend tournaments, be a part of a documentary, or just to enjoy hanging out together.. I'm a very lucky individual and I really do hope to further the live scene to the best of my ability. Unfortunately, I'm completely disenfranchised with the GENS online scene and I feel like my negativity towards it regardless of how composed it may (or may not be) is something that I dont think reflects well on the online community and its attempt to grow stronger. I think we have many other buds who provide as much of a positive impact if not more to the community without the controversy that I can bring at times. All of the other buds that were also recognized along with so many others (including you Halifax!) I think are better candidates for such recognition. I hope the NHL 94 live scene and online community grows bigger and stronger in 2017. May the GA be with you.
  8. The AJ Situation

    I planned my most recent vacation in May, well before any fall season was confirmed. I knew my vacation could pose a problem as the season went on and I brought it up to Raph. Like it or not I was allowed in the playoffs, hell Id even go so far as to say I was encouraged to be in the playoffs despite my situation. I busted my ass before my trip to get my 2 snes series in and my 1 gens series in. I did what I could to get my series in with FPB but it didnt work out. I come back on the 16th to work two jobs, deal with the holidays and try to overcome jet lag after flying in from eastern europe. Granted, I didnt try to find FPB but on the other hand where is he? He has not shown up on the forums nor taken any time to communicate with me saying what his availability is. Yet somehow this is ALL my fault. I play my games and I play playoffs. My two issues occurred because I went to a live event which caused my opponent to throw the biggest hissy fit in NHL 94 online history despite the fact that we had a week left to play our games and he never tried to set up a time with me. The other time because I went on a trip planned well ahead of time and my opponent is awol/uncommunicative when I return. If you think Im giving you the finger bud, then I got another one for you. You guys treat me like this because you know Im not going to fly off the handle by going on a huge expletive filled tirade or act like some petulant kid. What I'm hearing in all this is I shouldnt go to live events nor should I go on vacations that I paid for and planned months ahead of time if they happen to interfere with any sort of online playoff series. Whether thats the case or not, I dont care. Once Im done in this classic playoffs, Im gone. The rest of you guys on Gens can deal with all the garbage that Im seeing here. Frankly, I dont have the energy to gutter snipe with you guys. Im done dealing with unreasonable people. Good luck to you Gens buds, youre going to need it.
  9. The AJ Situation

    What you mean is do whatever I didn't do so that you can be right and I'm wrong. This situation doesn't involve you, your comments are not productive and I don't recall you resigning from the same league even though you didnt play your season games because you "forgot" the deadline. Don't worry, your attitude has driven me out of all online leagues for the foreseeable future. Just do the community a favor by staying quiet and playing your games.
  10. The AJ Situation

    I brought up my situation to raph before the end of the season and he gave it the green light. Fpb hasn't been active on the boards since end of November and he hasn't sent me a message in any form since that same time. Not saying anyone is right or wrong among the three of us,but that's what happened. Next time you can do more research than none before you start typing
  11. The AJ Situation

    Sorry bud, been real busy this month. Here, talk to ricky, he's taking my messages since I'm so busy...
  12. GENS A - AngryJay93 vs FPB

    I'm back, just been fighting some really bad jet lag, working ot and doing holiday stuff. I'm just about back to normal and could play later this week
  13. Sounds like a lot of work. I generally don't like all that set up. I got a new internet setup at the house id like to try. If I can get it to work I'm in for sure
  14. I'm thinking Michigan? I don't understand the cap rules and I can't look at the actual rosters until I get home on Friday.
  15. What is the start date? I would consider this league
