Spring 2016 Classic Registration Begins (Not an April Fool's Joke)

Recommended Posts

Spring '16 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 (right now, you can select Genesis or SNES). 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 (GENS or SNES). 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 status.

Registration deadline will be Friday, April 15th (also make sure you turn in your Income Taxes by that day - US only). At that point, we will hold a Team Selection Draft, time TBD. The draft order will be randomized. After the draft is completed for each league, the schedules will be released and the league will begin.

LEAGUE INFO

This season we will be having 40 game seasons. We are also doing registration on a first come, first serve basis (different from previous seasons). GENS-A will be capped at 12 teams, GENS-B capped at 16 teams (26 total for GENS), and SNES will be capped at 20 teams. Coaches who register after the quota has been reached will be placed on the Waiting List. Don't worry if you end up on the Waiting List, there is a strong chance you will end up taking over a team during the season!

40 game leagues will have the same 6 games/wk checkpoints as the past few seasons.

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.

For those coaches that are new, I suggest practicing and becoming familiar with a few teams. This way, you will have multiple teams on your "Draft Board" to select from during the Team Selection Draft. 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 us or email us at chaos[at]nhl94[dot]com, KingRaph at kingraph[at]nhl94[dot]com, halifax[at]nhl94[dot]com.

NOTE: Hopefully you are using the new LogMeIn Hamachi client. You can get it from the Downloads section on the front page of nhl94online.com. There is no need to remove the previous version, as the installer will remove it and keep the settings from the older version. You will also need to create a LogMeIn account (free). Hamachi needs to be linked to your LogMeIn account. You can create one after installing Hamachi. Once you start up the new version, it will ask you to sign up. Please check the "Getting Started" page (link at bottom of this post) for some info on how to use the new Hamachi setup.

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 (or feel free to add some veterans onto your AIM list and message them yourselves). 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, we will be holding a Team Selection Draft to choose teams. The draft will be held in the forums, so please make sure you register! An email will be sent out to all registrants once the Draft date has been selected, so it is important to register using an email you commonly check (also check your Spam or Junk folder). Once teams are selected, 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.

Everything you need to play can be downloaded in one package (for either GENS or SNES) from the nhl94online.com site. On the main page of the site, the Downloads section is located bottom right. You will also have to download Hamachi separately (also located in the same Downloads section).

I hope we get some new guys who recently participated in the King of '94 tournament!!

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

Also, it should be noted, that once April 16th comes around, if any of the coaches who had registered before the quota was reached haven't been confirmed (played a test game), they will be put on the Waiting List, and the next confirmed coach will move in to take their spot.

with 32 teams on the waiting list, would it be too much to create a 3rd division?

10 will go to an A division, 16 into B, 3 aren't confirmed, so that leaves just 3 on waitlist. We always need replacements, and with 3 on the list, I won't hesitate to replace folks who miss 2 deadlines asap. Hang tight bud, we'll get you in to play.
