    Gilmour has 5/4 skating, so 5 agility and 4 speed. Walking around C and C/B checks puts you in the best positions to score. It's fine to get hit by body checks every now and then. If you go look at the Blitz 10 stats, I get checked way more than anyone else but I have the best GFA by a pretty solid margin. I also have a pretty good GAA despite never using the C or C/B check. In Blitz 09 I was able to win with a super light team averaging about 0.15 body checks a game.

    I think Gilmour benefits. Before players were forced to B-check him, now they will try and C/B check. For someone with 5/4 skating like Gilmour, it is 50x easier to get around a C or C/B check than it is for a B-check. Also, when everyone is so focused on C/B checking they end up overusing the technique and just using the C/B at everything. I see this garbage all the time.

    NHL'94 Team Rankings

    DAL should be in tier 1 (behind DET) - As good as NYR, but they have a 4 weighter in Neal Broten. NYR should be in tier 1 (behind DAL) - NYR is dynamite. VAN should be in tier 1 (behind NYR) - A good difference in skill between NYR and VAN imo. BUF should be in tier 1 (behind VAN) - If either LaFontaine or Mogilny get injured, it's not a good time. CHI should be in tier 1 (behind BUF) - Roenick is overrated BOS should be in tier 2 (as the best team) - These guys could fit in tier 1.. nasty LA should be in tier 2 (behind BOS) - This team is stacked with good shots, but only one player (Gretzky) has good skating. WPG should be in tier 2 (behind LA) - Housley and Zhamnov have the stick handlez and Selanne is an elite. CGY should be in tier 2 (behind WPG) - Fleury, Roberts, Makarov, Nieuwendyk PHI should be in tier 2 (behind CGY) - Two players with good skating (Recchi and Eklund), a 5 weighter in Eklund and two great shots in Recchi and Lindy.

    GDLXII - Playoff Picture

    The site says I have home advantage, but it should be Freydey.
  9. Check out GGPO.. It's a netplay with no lag through some sort of hack that removes input lag I believe. GGPO is used on FightCade (a website for online emulator gaming for arcade systems). Everyone online is welcome to spectate your game live and once the session has ended a video of the whole thing is uploaded instantly on the servers. You honestly never lag and you can chat in-game as well. The creator is Tony Cannon (I think) and he's heavily involved in the fighting game community. He showed GGPO to Capcom and they use it now in some of their games, and it's widely regarded as the best netplay easily. Maybe we can try and contact him. Back in 2012, Supercade (the predecessor to FightCade) had a couple of guys who liked my idea of adding NHL '94 and making it officially compatible with GGPO. I got a response (not from Tony Cannon) but I can't remember what it was. The website has shut down so I can't remember what was said. EDIT: The FAQ explains what has to be done to add a new game. DOUBLE EDIT: Sega Genesis (but not SNES ) is actually a work in progress (says the creator of the emulator). TRIPLE EDIT: I don't think it will be completed anytime soon because he is doing it in his spare time and probably does not have the motivation.
  10. How different is a keyboard from a controller? It is just a preference. NHL '94 has controls a baby can pick up, it's very straightforward. That's why the new EA NHL games have "NHL '94 controls" for the mentally challenged, it's just three buttons and four directions! The fact that you cannot tell if I use a keyboard or a controller only proves the fact that the advantage isn't there. D-pad (controller) vs Arrow Keys (keyboard).. The same thing. I have never noticed the difference between a controller and a keyboard when playing NHL '94. Anyone who has played another game with the arrow keys before won't have a problem either.
  11. The Greatest Athlete in the world is for the winner of the decathlon.The Fastest Man in the world is for the winner of the 100m. The King of '94 is for the winner of a NHL '94 tournament that includes NHL '94 as a whole (says McMikey) which is Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Sega CD and DOS. Such a tournament does not exist yet and it won't be the one in Toronto.
  12. Why don't you go read the context? McMikey clearly implied NHL '94 can only be played on the Sega Genesis and the SNES and he said it was the entirety of NHL '94. This is his reasoning as to why it is necessary to mix the systems b/c it's the true way to determine the king of 94 for the doc.I said that it isn't true, because there are 2 other consoles that can and would need to be played. So theoretically you can have the runner-up of the tournament be the true "king of 94", (as he/she can really be better at 3 of the consoles) which then contradicts the method on how McMikey claims the title is determined. This tournament will not define the best at NHL'94 (in regards to his definition), so McMikey made an error. I'm correct. And seriously CoachMac... the ping pong/tennis thing is a perfect example. The best ping pong player will always beat the best tennis player and vice versa. The top SNES player will kick the s**t out of any GENS player and the top GENS player will kick the s**t out of any SNES player. Go look at all the top SNES players, none have done anything in GENS and vice versa.
  13. I'm not trying to troll. People have a point in saying WTF to the idea of mixing the consoles. Sure McMikey put in some hard work, but that's not any excuse to not bash a silly decision. Winner GENS vs SNES does NOT give you the king of 94. Why is that so hard to understand? Again, the best tennis player doesn't play the best ping pong player to determine the king of tennis. How is that a troll? Completely relevant and a great point as to why GENS/SNES may not be the best.
  14. "So as a thought process for a second and think of the systems as secondary and the goal is to find the best person at NHL '94 as a whole (SNES mixed in with Gens)." Ok you're right.. NHL '94 is ONLY on the Sega Genesis and SNES as it was mentioned in your earlier post. Yes I am trolling when I say it is not.. I am not sure what you mean with Michael Jordan. First off, Michael Jordan played in the NBA. The NBA is the top basketball league in the world. He was the best in the NBA, and thus the best BASKETBALL player in the world. Now what if there was a Netball league that was called the NetBall Association (NBA aswell)? You wouldn't take the best netball player from the NetBall Association and say hey.. play Michael Jordan 1on1 to prove who really is the best NBA player. This is essentially what you are doing. Both games are called NHL '94, but they are different like Tennis and Table Tennis. Tell me, when do you see the #1 ranked tennis player face off against the best table tennis player to determine who the best tennis player is? People are smart enough to know that's not how it works.
  15. NHL '94 was released on FOUR different consoles, so even then the point of having the "best" NHL '94 player doesn't apply to the tournament if it's only going to be GENS and SNES. Sure it's cool to mix them, but you still won't determine who the best player is. What if the runner-up in the tournament is actually better at the other two consoles?

    Most Heartbreaking Loss

    GDL 09 vs BoKnowsNHL94 - Game 7 GDL X vs Icestorm - Game 7 I lose both games 6-5 after sloppy play in which my opponent piles on goals and then a late push by myself comes up short. When I look at it now, I definitely would have won the title had I won these games. In GDL 09 I would have played TomKabs (I had beaten him exactly a week earlier) and swos before taking on Carse in the final. In GDL X I would have beat swos in the final. BoKnowsNHL94 (1) vs Plabax (8) ---------------------------------------------- I definitely outplayed Bo in this series. Late in Game 5 (series tied 2-2) I had the lead and with my goalie I willingly decided to pass it in Bo's direction and I got scored on. I don't know why I did it but I honestly didn't care too much because I really thought I was going to win regardless. I lost that game in OT but bounced back in Game 6 with my most dominating game of the season. Game 7 was a mess. Bo brought his A-game and I was in a hole early on. I fought back and got back into the game. I'm pretty sure I hit the post on a penalty shot THEN on what was going to be a breakaway my team took a penalty I had a final rush, missed and then just saved the state while we were still in play. We didn't even end up seeing the three stars. ------------------------------ Icestorm NHL94 (1) vs Plabax (3) I came off a 4-2 series victory against Carse and I knew I was better than swos. The problem was, I wasn't confident in beating Icestorm. I used to think he was the best player in the community (I was very wrong lol ). Anyway, games 1 and 2 I got destroyed by Icestorm. My heart wasn't even racing, it just felt like I was going to lose. The problem was, my team of buggers was not good enough on the offensive end to score against Icestorm's great defensive and goalie play. Game 3 I found a rhythm and came out with the win. Game 4 I lost, but I had the extreme confidence I needed in my ability to force a game 7. I dominated games 5 and 6 and before game 7, I didn't underestimate my opponent like I did with Bo the year before. Game 7 starts and early on I give away the puck with my goalie. Icestorm scores on the open net, 1-0 for him. I come back and take the lead 2-1 before Ice ties it up at 2. In the second period, Icestorm scores 3 goals in 5 seconds and all of a sudden I'm down 5-2. Early in the third period I'm able to make it 5-4 and I have all the momentum until I give it away with my goalie yet again, and Icestorm takes advantage. It seems like a backbreaker goal but then I come right back and score to make it 6-5. The rest of the game is all me. Point-blank shots in the crease, one-timers. everything. Ice stops it all and I lose the game. I lost this series more than Ice won it. In the end, I knew swos beat Ice in the finals and he did.
  19. I meant that it is not as serious compared to other video game tournaments. Not trying to troll, but it's the truth. No room for 300-500 people (at least)? 128 players (64 each) is really weak. 64 players and 20+ games going on at once is what my local college gathers for a video game tournament.With 40+ setups, you should have enough time to ensure 400 players get at least 22 games over two days with plenty of sleep in between (round robin, assuming all matchups are best-of-3 and 10 minutes long), then on the final day you could do the top 64 in 12-14 hours (assuming all matchups are best of 7 and there is a game 7 in every round of the bracket, and also asumming when it's time for the top 8, all games are played at separate times so everyone can watch on two setups (one for the guys who want to watch GENS, one for the guys who want to watch SNES) then the Finals will be screened on one setup, so both GENS and SNES fans will watch the finals of both consoles. Since the price entry is $45 and the tournament is so cool and full of NHL players. I would expect each console's (assuming an even amount of players between the two, if not just add the diffrrencr) first place winners to be walking home with at least $8000, runner-ups with $2800, $980 for the semi-finalists, or if you want third place games, $1400 for third, $560 for fourth, $210 for the remaining top 8 losers. Mostly everyone should be back at their homes before 7AM on the Monday
  20. GDL is not s**t because standard fantasy snake drafts are normal. People play with those rules for money and it's widely recognized. If you took any hardcore fantasy player and showed them GDL, they would understand. Blitz on the other hand, full of holes and gaps, made no sense. The protect system was bad. I think it's liked because it uses the weight fix, is split up into A/B and now everyone can C-check the opposition. I'm sure for most people, the C-check is a big factor in determining how fun the game is. That's how it seems at least.
  21. OK sorry for trolling, but I just don't think the tournament seems all to serious. I should have just said it like that.
  22. Me winning doesn't prove anything. You just want to film me lol. No thanks come to my house
  23. This seems a bit extreme. Fatigues on doesn't change the game completely. Did you play TDL? I didn't notice a difference in the results. I noticed a difference in less players mashing the C button and being cheesy abusing C checks. Another plus is that the players that are way too fast become nullified by fatigue over the course of a shift. You also don't play against top players all the time, so more skill comes out.Also, playing with something a majority of the time doesn't mean it's the best. Wasn't Blitz played for 8 seasons with s**t rules?
  24. I agree with the fatigue part. However when playing with line changes, people just pick Sc1 and Sc2. I remember playing against Raph and Labs and they never used the Chk line. It's best to leave them off since people are just looking to abuse it. This is not really the king of '94, it's a get together for the filming of a documentary. Not surprised really.
  25. There should be a brand new online league for every active player who is going to the tournament, and then do the live draft IN Toronto with a spreadsheet to help.
