Fall '13 Classic League Registration!


Register HERE

For those of you who have registered on the NHL94Online site before, then registration will be easy. You just need to choose "Yes" for the question "Have you registered for a league before?", type in your site user name and password (NOTE: This is different than your forum password and user name, unless you made it the same), and choose the league you will be joining and your team preferences (a total of 10). Then, hit submit and you will be placed on the waiting list. It's that easy.

For those of you who have not registered on the NHL94Online site before, then there is a little more info needed to complete registration. You need to choose "No" for the question "Have you registered for a league before?" and enter a user name and password (it's common to use the same user name as your forum name or AIM name). You will also be asked to fill out some more information about yourself (email, location, timezone, AIM Name, system preference). Then choose the league you will be joining, and your team preferences (a total of 10). Then hit submit and you will be placed on the waiting list. You will then need to play a test game to make sure your connection is set up properly. This does not affect your place on the waiting list, but you cannot play in the league without playing the test game. If you have played in other online leagues before, you are technically confirmed already. Please PM or email me (chaos[at]nhl94[dot]com) and I will change you to confirmed.

Registration deadline will be Monday, September 9th. At that point, we will assign teams to coaches and the schedules will be released.

This season, for the first time in 6 years, we will be running both 40 and 20 game leagues.

40 game leagues will have the same 6 games/wk checkpoints as the past few seasons. We are hoping to get 12 teams per league level.

20 game leagues will have 4 games/wk checkpoints. Also, you will only play coaches in your conference, either 4 or 5 games against each coach. This will make it easier to meet your checkpoints as you will have to find less people. We are going to limit each league level to 10 or 12 teams.

All "new to online play" coaches will be placed in 20 game leagues. If some new coaches play well in their 20 game leagues, they can be used as replacement coaches in the 40 game leagues.



You CAN NOT sign up for multiple league levels (i.e. GENS and SNES). Only those who are reliable will be allowed to do so, at the discretion of us admins. This will allow you to concentrate on one league.

The administrators (KingRaph, Halifax and I) will assign what coaches go into each league level. Each league will have 12 coaches maximum, to give everybody a better chance at getting one of their top teams.


TEAM SELECTION PROCESS

We will be using smozoma's method for team selection. We used this the last 5 seasons and it has worked out pretty well. Here is a brief description:

- Everyone is generated a randomized number. This means that it doesn't matter if you registered on the first day or the last day. Everyone has the same chance of getting the first pick.
- After organizing the list using the randomized numbers, we go down looking at everyone's FIRST team pick, in order. Those coaches who still have their first team selection available by the time we get to them, get their first pick. If not, they get skipped.
- Then, we go down the organized list looking at the SECOND team pick of those coaches who are skipped. If those coaches still have their second team selection available, they get that pick. If not, they get skipped.
- Then we look at the THIRD pick, etc.

Example:

Iceguy has his team pref. listed as: SJ, ANA, TB, OTT
Zalex has his team pref. listed as: SJ, TB, OTT, ANA
FPB has his team pref. listed as: SJ, OTT, ANA, TB
Carse has his team pref. listed as: TB, ANA, OTT, SJ

The randomized order is Iceguy 1st, Zalex 2nd, FPB 3rd, Carse 4th.

First picks:

- Iceguy gets SJ.
- Zalex gets skipped, since SJ was chosen already.
- FPB gets skipped as well, since SJ was chosen already.
- Carse gets TB.

Second picks:

- Zalex gets skipped, since SJ and TB were chosen already.
- FPB gets OTT.

Third picks:

- Zalex gets skipped, because OTT was picked already.

Fourth picks:

- Zalex gets ANA.

I will not be changing team preferences for veterans after they have registered. If you aren't sure what team you want to use, wait until the last day of registration. I will allow new coaches "1" chance to change to their team preferences.

We are making the leagues smaller to allow for a better chance of getting one of your top teams. For those coaches that are new, I suggest practicing and becoming familiar with a few teams. Just in case you don't get your first pick, you will still have a shot at getting a team you are familiar with. You can contact any veteran coach to play some exhibition games, or practice against the computer.

Good luck! If there are any questions or problems, feel free to PM me or email me at chaos[at]nhl94[dot]com.


INFORMATION FOR NEW GUYS

If you are new to the league, welcome! We are a big brotherly community here, and there are a number of guys who are always around willing to help the new guys out. First things first, you need to register for NHL94.com (this site), as well as on the nhl94online.com site (registration link at the beginning of this post). It is also required to have an AIM screen name, since that is the main method of communication for scheduling games. Once you are registered, the next step is to set up a test game. You can use the forum links below and post your availability. One of the veterans will send you a PM or a message on AIM. A test game needs to be played in order to make sure your emulator/network settings are correct. Once the test game is played, the veteran will confirm you on the nhl94online site. Once this is done, you are set until the season starts. A few days before the season starts (normally during the week after registration ends), you will be assigned a team. Team selections will be posted on this site. You will also be able to see them on the nhl94online.com site. Once teams are posted, the schedules will be put up on the site and you can start playing your games. There will be another post announcing the start of the season, with information on how to log games, contact other coaches, and how to make the playoffs.

Again, if you have any questions, please email me (chaos@nhl94.com) or PM me via the forums.

Hello, guys. It has been a while.

If possible, I'd like to drop by for the Fall season and get myself up and running little by little. I've been away too long. Am I able to join both leagues?

Just one league, but like every season, if you finish your season fast, there's possibilities to replace someone else in another league.

Seriously man, come back, what the hell!

I never knew who AJ was. Didn't know that person was the same as AngryJay, whom I just met & started playing. Bummed that he's joining the 20-game season/league though and not the 40.

Veterans (all guys who have played in a league before), please contact the new coaches posting their info in the Gens and SNES Test Game Request threads and the introduction thread. We depend on you guys to give these guys a test game.

You can use the Confirm Coach Page http://nhl94online.com/html/confirm_player.php to confirm them. It is also found under the "User Tools" on the nhl94online.com site.
