  1. Lag switch
  2. Done.
  3. Per Jer's request, all of them on one page. I left the other threads the way they were, as others prefer them in separate threads.
  4. Team Groups A vs B, A cannot use Group 1, must choose from Group 2 & 3. A vs B, B can use any team from Group 1, 2 & 3. A vs C, A cannot use Group 1 or 2, must choose from Group 3. A vs C, C can use any team from Group 1, 2 & 3. A vs A, it's a free for all, any team available. B vs C, B cannot use Group 1, must choose from Group 2 & 3. B vs C, C can use any team from Group 1, 2 & 3. B vs B, it's a free for all, any team available. C vs C, it's a free for all, any team is available. Group 1: Detroit Chicago Buffalo Vancouver Boston Minnesota in this rom (Dallas in Classic) Montreal NYR Calgary Winnipeg LA Group 2: Toronto Quebec Philly Edmonton Hartford St Louis Pitt NYI New Jersey Washington Group 3: San Jose Tampa Bay Florida Ottawa Anaheim ***If playing a 7 game series, and you get to game 6/7, alternates for Group 3 become NJ & Wash*** Default is 5 games, and the only time Group 3 class restrictions is used is for A vs C anyhow.
  5. Surviving Summer League Rules Classic Rom with a few small tweaks: Penalties reduced to 1 minute, instead of 2 minutes. In the ROM, the teams will have their lines edited to reflect more accurate lines, reducing the start up time, and leading to better subs coming in during penalties/injuries, reducing the need to pause the game. Less likely to have the "Seth effect" during exi's/regular games. SO, it still will have the following: WEIGHT BUG, NON-STATIC, INACCURATE RATINGS in game menu, HOME/AWAY advantages. In other words, the ROM will play/behave exactly as the Classic Rom will come Vegas in the fall, minus the penalty adjustment and not having to edit your lines to avoid a disadvantage. Coach has posted the ROM below. Schedule You will play each opponent ONE series. The ONLY thing that counts on your record is if you own or lost the series, and that's what will go into the standings. Default is BEST OF 5, but if both coaches agree, they can go for Best of 3, or Best of 7. You can only use a team ONCE per series. Based on your level of rank, your choice of teams to select from might be limited, depending on your opponent. For A level coaches vs A level coaches, or B level coaches vs B level coaches, or C level coaches vs C level coaches, there are no limits on team selection. For A level coaches vs B level coaches, the A level coach can pick from Team Group 2 & 3. The B level coach has no restrictions. For A level coaches vs C level coaches, the A level coach can pick from Team Group 3. The C level coach has no restrictions. For B level coaches vs C level coaches, the B level coach can pick from Group 2 & 3. The C level coach has no restrictions. The visiting team will always pick their team choice FIRST, then the home team selects. EACH player will be individually ranked to start the season, and for the regular season, will be the ROAD team in a series. (IE in a Best of 5 series, it goes 2-2-1, so the higher ranked player is handicapped as the lower seed. Thus, they are on the road for games 1,2 & 5.) Logging Games We will use Aqua/Atomic's site to log each game and the scores/stats. We will use a Google Doc sheet to track who won which series, and your overall standing. However, more games means you will have more stats to look at Season Length/Start Date Season will last 30 days, starting Junes 5th, and end July 5th, after American holiday. Everyone who puts in a real effort will make the playoffs, and be seeded according to talent/effort. IN THE PLAYOFFS: Best of 7 series, each series, you can only choose a team once, with the same handicaps for levels, except the higher seed won't be on the road in the playoffs. IMPORTANT NOTE: Over half of the league will be HARDCORE mode, looking to play every opponent, and be competitive on best series records, etc. However, about a third of the league will likely be CASUAL players. They might play 15 games, they might play 20 games, they might play 30. The ONLY RULE REQUIRED TO BE IN THE LEAGUE is you FINISH ANY SERIES you start. REPEAT< FINISH ANY SERIES YOU START > After the season ends, the guys who played enough series will be in the playoffs. The others will be viewed as guys who enjoyed a casual summer league and had some great games. I also will ask guys as the playoffs approach if they will be available to participate in the playoffs, and only guys who can/will complete their games will be put in the playoff tourney.
  6. Coaches & Ranking. For regular season, HIGHER SEED is road team in Best of 5 Default (or Best of 3 or 7, depending on what you agree upon). For playoffs, I will re-edit rankings based on performance and games played. #1 Raph (A) #2 Ice (A) #3 Habs (A) #4 Brutus (A) #5 Zep (A) #6 Tex (A) #7 Skip (A) #8 Lupz (B) #9 Probob (B) #10 Sicarius (B) #11 Sonoffett (B) #12 JV (B) #13 Aqua (B) #14 Jer (B) #15 Atomic (B) #16 Chef (C) #17 Flatcrusher (C) #18 Tunowash (C)
  7. Ok, we a few weeks into the season that ends July 5th. It's June 14th. So far, only Tex seems to have gotten the message the season is under way!!! Need to get some games in guys. I grabbed Aqua & Sicarius last night. Thought I was going to land Skip as well, but didn't happen. I will be back around Friday night. The series are really fun. I look forward to getting more of them in.
  8. I've only had one time I scored under 5 seconds. I one timed the face off with Brett Hull from the left wing, which went like a bullet past the goalie. The initial pass off the face off wasn't smooth, but somehow got bobbled and as I was pounding C to check, Hull just one timed it. Easily one of my most crazy goals, but unlike Seth, who one times off the boards behind the blue line regularly (when he played), I've never been able to repeat the feat And the original post is based on a record, so you can't use save state edits.
  9. Thanks to Coach's great work. This is the same rom from his other thread. NHLHN1994classic.bin
  10. SUBMIT YOUR SERIES RESULTS HERE: Loading... STANDINGS: https://tinyurl.com/y87a9scl We will be using NHL94rocks.com to upload save states. This is a Summer League and with all the different teams being used won't work very well with the NHL94online.com site, so I didn't bother Chaos with trying to set this up for us. This will only log your games and keep your win/loss record, all your stats that NHL94 records in the save states.

  12. Yeah, that would be a nice wrinkle. Have to consider this next time we run this off.
  13. Use this thread if you need to post your limited availability, or looking for a specific group of guys type thing.

  15. Ok, I'm going to try to get this thread moved to it's own league on the forum and to get me admin access so I can remove the confusion that some of you might have. Season is live. Coaches are listed above in ranking. All the rules are above in one of the 3 main post I have. Each coach can play & log their Best of 5 series on Atomic/Aqua's site for stats/results. Log all the games, even if it's Best of 3, 5 or 7. I will then put the SERIES results on a Google Doc that Raph is creating. SOME OF THE COACHES are only looking for casual. As such, you won't likely find them all. For ranking and competition, we will only count the coaches that go full in towards the Hardcore Standings type thing. It's a Summer League, but should offer some great competition/exi's, but most importantly, a lot of Classic style fun.

  17. ***league starts tomorrow*** There is only one league/conference. A/B/C is to make sure we all have fun & series are fun/challenging. Some of the B guys are closer to A, and some of the B guys could use a C rating vs the top A guys, but it's a one month league & im not setting up 5 stages. Maybe if we run it a second time or for playoffs I'll do that .

  19. Almost locked on coaches. I edited the above post to reflect what I know for now. THERE will only be one league/conference/division & only one playoff, but since team selection is handicapped by A, B or C, it should balance out some. I will likely use a PLAY-IN type series to give the bottom qualifiers a fun series before getting creamed by the top seeds. Not enough coaches for 2 playoffs and that seems to be the best way to spread the love. Also, come playoff time, I will re-rank anyone that appears miss cast as too high or low before they begin playing their playoff series. AND FINALLY, I will also designate those who are marked as casual, and we will know to not sweat on them for games.
  20. Bumping team setups/rules for series.
  21. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
  22. Also, I believe right now, with attendance low, it's best to set up more non-strict guidelines for exi's, easy to join leagues, less drafts, etc, and let the actual game, NHL94 do the work of keeping guys playing, or joining in to play. The REAL REALITY is if NHL94 is great, and worth guys taking these extra steps to play and find each other, it is the one that will sell the "folks" out there on doing so. AND regardless of how a league is run, if the game doesn't generate enough demand, it's not going to work. 2v2 is also something that was QUITE dead for a long time, but of late, it's been the driving force for late night exi's and keeping guys popping on to play, new or old. In the end, it's the game that will do the work, and if the play is entertaining enough over our other options, it will continue on.
  23. The site activity comment is very true during a draft/preseason, however, RUNNING the draft, especially in a short time manner that makes it worth doing is VERY VERY time consuming on me IF we don't have the right coaches in the league. ANY new coaches are a nightmare to drag through their first draft, and a certain set of veterans require me dragging them across the finish line EVERY time. IT IS the main reason I went away from a draft for Surviving Summer. I could get into the rest, but I've gone over it before, and find you ignore logic to fit your reasons. Love the idea of having a constant draft setup, and there is not enough demand right now to do so, even if I offered my time up more than I already do.
  24. So, after messaging with several coaches, I guess Pearate's connection is total crap for most. Skip tried but was not able to get a respectable connection vs him. As a result, I am forfeiting Pearate for that series, and declaring Skip the Et Tu Brute B finals champ. I thought of subbing in, etc, but the league is over, the season is over, the playoffs have dragged on long enough. Skip would be the heavy favorite in any other scenario I could lay out. Congrats on a solid season Skip. Sorry it didn't end with an epic Game 7.
