  1. Between Period Highlights/SNES Classic Mod Question

    In the SNES version, you will only see highlights in playoff games. In the Genesis version, you will see them in either. The game manuals say so.

  3. Game Stats online

    The actual ratings are correct, but I think some of the positions may be wrong.

    The CB check was discovered in 2014
  5. 2017 NHL'94 bud of the year!

    Plabax League was run in 2017.
  6. 2017 NHL'94 bud of the year!

    i understand where you are coming from, but I think tru makes a good point. The runner-up list excludes people that aren't a part of a select list. Look how halifax deliberately didn't put me on the list (again). With AJ and kingraph having bud of the year awards, I would definitely have one too if my reputation weren't tainted.

    Controllers need to be configured as 6-button to avoid desyncs.

    It seems like nobody ever mentions the awareness stats when discussing players.

    The World Cup and Olympics are only considered to be premier events because of hype and tradition. They are established, prestigious events that bring out the best of the best and have this aura of being the "best". The prestige in winning them comes from the fact that the events are held in high regard. However, you can't go around talking about being the best because of a World Cup or an Olympic Gold Medal. There are other events that determine who the best really are because the format is better at doing so. In the case of the Super Bowl, there is no alternative. While major sports playoffs are small samples, they are large enough. You could make the President's Trophy winner the Cup winner too.

    I agree... however how you play it is more important. You guys are playing in a live tournament but under what rules? Coin flips and best-of-one or three series? How do you gain bragging rights from playing like that? What is there to brag about? Why not play blindfolded or play first goal wins.. it wouldn't matter because it would be in person, right? I'm sure the King of '94 is awesome. I don't like how people are acting as if it's the World Cup of NHL '94. I don't see how it can be the Premier Event to win in NHL '94 because of the format. Why not make the tournament three days and have all round-robin matchups best of 3, then have everyone who advances past it everyone play best-of-5 or best-of-7? Also, let people choose their teams maybe... Anyone can win King of '94 with the current format. That's why the winners are not even community members. Playing live games does produce the best results, but you need to play enough games. A small sample size does no good, and the King of '94 produces a very small one. BobK and Jamil had a max of just seven games combined through winners and losers even though they played in Grand Finals and reset the bracket. That's ridiculous. The equivalent for many other competitive video games would be fifteen games (3x best-of-five going to game five), which is more than double of what King of '94 offers.

    Get back to reality. The King of '94 is nothing more than a get-together with NHL'94 on the side. The tournament is there for you guys to grab a drink and hang out in person. Why play it off as if it's the Wimbledon of NHL '94? The actual format is something you would set up for your 12-year old son's birthday party. I'm not understanding how coin flips and best-of-ones and best-of-threes determine who the best players are?

    How does winning a corny SNES tournament, beating Bob Kudelski and beating JeffBC make you the best player in the world? I don't believe this guy is the best player in the world.
  13. Plablegs Questionaire

    I'm not a fan of having so many coaches in weight bugged draft leagues. The talent pool with the weight bug is not deep enough to support more than 18 equal teams IMO. You could bump this # up to 20 if you love Coffey and Housley. You have: Yzerman, Klima, Roenick/Mogilny, Gartner Bure, Selanne/Dino/Gretzky, Fleury LaFontaine, Oates Lemieux, Modano/Courtnall, Recchi, Gilmour, Ronning Housley/Coffey The rest of the players you can mix, but try to get players that complement each other. If you have Gretzky or Ronning, maybe try to get a good shooter, etc.
  14. I always liked to look at the boxscores of the playoff games. Now they're gone. Any chance we can get them back?
