Team schedules are up and games can now be logged on the nhl94online site.
For those of you who have forgotten how the site works, or for the new coaches in the league, a game is logged as follows:
1. Contact the coach you would like to play on AIM.
You can find their AIM by going to the nhl94online.com site. Choose the Classic '94-Fall 2011 league from the drop-down "League Selection" menu on the menu bar. Choose the "League Level" you have joined in the left-hand column and click on your Team. Your "Coach Page" should come up, and you can see which teams you have games remaining against. Click on that team's name in the left-hand column and that team's coach page should load. On the right hand side of the page, there is an area which contains the coach's AIM name. You can contact them in this manner to schedule a game. You can also choose the "Teams & Schedules" page from the menu bar and this will list all the coaches in the league and their AIM screen names. AIM is what we use to contact coaches and set up games.
2. Play the game.
Play the game against the selected coach. When playing a game against a coach, the home team hosts the game (this matters for the GENS emulator, ZSNES it doesn't matter who hosts, as you can switch team control). Once the game is complete, it is the home team's responsibility to log the game. This is done on the "Coach Page" that displays your schedule. By clicking on your team's name in the left-hand column, you access your "Coach Page". Games that you have at home will have a "Log a Game" link next to it. Choose the game that has been played, and record the score. Type in your password (that you used when you registered for the nhl94online.com site) to log the game. Once this is done, the away team needs to "Confirm" the game by clicking on the game link on their schedule and typing their password. This will effectively complete the logging of the game.
NOTE: If the score is incorrect, the away team has the option to change the score. This can be done by just clicking on the score box and changing it. Once they do this, the home team needs to "Reconfirm" it in order for it to count towards the season. If a incorrect score is confirmed and has already been processed by the site (both coaches didn't realize the score was wrong and it was confirmed), please PM me or Halifax.
The season will be 40 games long. There will be WEEKLY CHECKPOINTS. You are required to play 6 games a week. If you miss 2 checkpoints in a row, you will run the chance of being replaced. This is to speed up the season so we can hopefully complete the playoffs before the holiday season. I do not think this is asking much, and most of the guys in the league are easy to reach and are active in the forums. If you cannot find a coach and would like to try to schedule a time to play, please use the "Schedule a Game" forum or send them a message on AIM, or use the forum PM. Please make an effort to reach your checkpoints! Also, the 6 games a week is a minimum . Feel free to play more games than that. For example, if you play 12 games in the first week, then you already satisfy the first 2 checkpoints. It's easy to get to this 6 game point, since most coaches you have 2-4 games against and everyone likes getting all the games against a single coach in at the same time.
By next week, there will be a comments section near each game, where both coaches will be able to post their availability and leave messages, etc. This will be another way to get in contact with the coach. I will also add a spot for each User's Profile to post their NHL 94 Forum Name. Since not everyone uses the same name for both sites, this should help with using PM contact. Everyone will need to Edit their profile and add their Forum Name.
The regular season consists of 40 games.
You each play 4 games against division foes, 3 games against the foes in the rest of the conference, and 2 games against foes from the other conference.
GENS-B, SNES-A1, SNES-A2
You each play 5 games against division foes, 4 games against the foes in the rest of the conference, and 3 games against foes from the other conference.
You play 4 games against every coach.
Playoff series will be best-of-7, except for the 40 game consolation brackets, which will be best-of-5.
GENS-A - Conference Winners are top 2 seeds, and then the best 10 teams after them will make the playoffs (12 teams).
GENS-B, GENS-C - Conference Winners are top 2 seeds, then the best 6 teams after them make the playoffs (8 teams).
There will be a consolation playoff bracket for teams from GENS-B and GENS-C that completed their 40 game season, and did not qualify for the regular playoff brackets.
SNES-A1, SNES-A2 - Conference Winners are top 2 seeds, then the best 6 teams after them make the playoffs (8 teams).
SNES-B1, SNES-B2 - Conference Winners are top 2 seeds, then the best 4 teams after them make the playoffs (6 teams).
SNES will also have a consolation playoff bracket for teams from all 4 SNES leagues that completed their 40 game season, and did not qualify for the regular playoff brackets.
The winner of the SNES-A1 playoffs will face off against the SNES-A2 winner for the SNES-A crown.
Same goes for SNES-B.
Also, NP (negative points) will be applied to missed games at the end of the season. This could hurt your playoff seeding! These NPs will be given out to a coach that did not attempt to contact and schedule a game with their opponent. You will get a 2 point reduction that will be applied at the end of the season. Those coaches who do show effort in trying to contact the opposing coach and schedule their games will not have points deducted.
For the new coaches, the rules of the league are posted at: http://www.nhl94onli.../html/rules.php
That's about all. Good luck to everyone and lets hope for another successful season!
If there are any website problems or questions about the site, or the league in general, please PM me (chaos) or AIM : Rage93.
Fall 2011 Classic Season Begins!
