Remember when this guy used to roam the playground?  WTF happened to him?

Speaking of, when is your fiber optics cable getting installed?  I know your jonesing for some 94 action.

Also as far as exis go, if you know how to go about it you can get plenty of exis in, it's just not as easy like it was 2 years ago when there were 5 guys on at least from 7 PM to Midnight almost every night.  But I spent 6 nights in a row looking for exis from 7 PM till 5 AM, and got some action at various times each night including 2 great 2v2 sessions.

Surviving Summer League Rules

Classic Rom
with a few small tweaks:

Penalties reduced to 1 minute, instead of 2 minutes.
In the ROM, the teams will have their lines edited to reflect more accurate lines, reducing the start up time, and leading to better subs coming in during penalties/injuries, reducing the need to pause the game.   Less likely to have the "Seth effect" during exi's/regular games.

SO, it still will have the following:
WEIGHT BUG, NON-STATIC, INACCURATE RATINGS in game menu, HOME/AWAY advantages.
In other words, the ROM will play/behave exactly as the Classic Rom will come Vegas in the fall, minus the penalty adjustment and not having to edit your lines to avoid a disadvantage.
Coach has posted the ROM below.
 

Schedule

You will play each opponent ONE series.  The ONLY thing that counts on your record is if you own or lost the series, and that's what will go into the standings.
Default is BEST OF 5, but if both coaches agree, they can go for Best of 3, or Best of 7.
You can only use a team ONCE per series.
Based on your level of rank, your choice of teams to select from might be limited, depending on your opponent.
For A level coaches vs A level coaches, or B level coaches vs B level coaches, or C level coaches vs C level coaches, there are no limits on team selection.
For A level coaches vs B level coaches, the A level coach can pick from Team Group 2 & 3.  The B level coach has no restrictions.
For A level coaches vs C level coaches, the A level coach can pick from Team Group 3.  The C level coach has no restrictions.
For B level coaches vs C level coaches, the B level coach can pick from Group 2 & 3.  The C level coach has no restrictions.

The visiting team will always pick their team choice FIRST, then the home team selects.  EACH player will be individually ranked to start the season, and for the regular season, will be the ROAD team in a series.
(IE in a Best of 5 series, it goes 2-2-1, so the higher ranked player is handicapped as the lower seed.  Thus, they are on the road for games 1,2 & 5.)

Logging Games

We will use Aqua/Atomic's site to log each game and the scores/stats.  We will use a Google Doc sheet to track who won which series, and your overall standing. However, more games means you will have more stats to look at :)

Season Length/Start Date
Season will last 30 days, starting Junes 5th, and end July 5th, after American holiday.
Everyone who puts in a real effort will make the playoffs, and be seeded according to talent/effort.
 

IN THE PLAYOFFS:
Best of 7 series, each series, you can only choose a team once, with the same handicaps for levels, except the higher seed won't be on the road in the playoffs.

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Over half of the league will be HARDCORE mode, looking to play every opponent, and be competitive on best series records, etc.  However, about a third of the league will likely be CASUAL players.  They might play 15 games, they might play 20 games, they might play 30.  The ONLY RULE REQUIRED TO BE IN THE LEAGUE is you FINISH ANY SERIES you start. 
REPEAT< FINISH ANY SERIES YOU START >

After the season ends, the guys who played enough series will be in the playoffs.  The others will be viewed as guys who enjoyed a casual summer league and had some great games.  I also will ask guys as the playoffs approach if they will be available to participate in the playoffs, and only guys who can/will complete their games will be put in the playoff tourney.

Almost locked on coaches.  I edited the above post to reflect what I know for now.

 

THERE will only be one league/conference/division & only one playoff, but since team selection is handicapped by A, B or C, it should balance out some.  I will likely use a PLAY-IN type series to give the bottom qualifiers a fun series before getting creamed by the top seeds.  Not enough coaches for 2 playoffs and that seems to be the best way to spread the love.

Also, come playoff time, I will re-rank anyone that appears miss cast as too high or low before they begin playing their playoff series.

AND FINALLY, I will also designate those who are marked as casual, and we will know to not sweat on them for games.

***league starts tomorrow***

There is only one league/conference.  A/B/C is to make sure we all have fun & series are fun/challenging.

Some of the B guys are closer to A, and some of the B guys could use a C rating vs the top A guys, but it's a one month league & im not setting up 5 stages.  Maybe if we run it a second time or for playoffs I'll do that .

Atomic is in too, Brutus, as a casual player.

Guys, we will keep track of games here:

http://nhl94rocks.com/tourneyList.php

Most of you are registered.  If you do not remember password, you can get it emailed to you on the site.  If you still have trouble, PM me.

These guys need to register:
NEEDS REG #5 Skip (A)
NEEDS REG #12 Habs (A)
NEEDS REG #13 Chef (C)
NEEDS REG #14 Sicarius (B)
NEEDS REG #15 Sonoffett (B)
NEEDS REG #16  Tunowash (C) 
NEEDS REG #17 Probob (B)

If you play someone not registered, you cannot submit a game.  So hold on to the gamesaves until both competitors are registered.  If people take too long to register, I will do it for you, but it will create confusion (since I don't know your preferred password or email) , so try to do it yourself.  You register on the main page of the site (nhl94rocks.com).

Atomic and I are trying to get things set up to accept gamesaves before tomorrow morning (Mon June 5).  If you play games before we are functional, just remember to keep gamesaves to upload when things are ready.

Site is live and functional for the 12 coaches that are currently registered.  Big thanks to Atomic for setting it up.  If you have tech issues, post in this thread.  You must use the correct ROM made by Coach for it to work.

Login and add your games to:

http://nhl94rocks.com/tourneyList.php

Good luck!

Ok, I'm going to try to get this thread moved to it's own league on the forum and to get me admin access so I can remove the confusion that some of you might have.

 

Season is live.  Coaches are listed above in ranking.  All the rules are above in one of the 3 main post I have.

Each coach can play & log their Best of 5 series on Atomic/Aqua's site for stats/results.  Log all the games, even if it's Best of 3, 5 or 7.
I will then put the SERIES results on a Google Doc that Raph is creating. 

SOME OF THE COACHES are only looking for casual.  As such, you won't likely find them all.  For ranking and competition, we will only count the coaches that go full in towards the Hardcore Standings type thing.

It's a Summer League, but should offer some great competition/exi's, but most importantly, a lot of Classic style fun.
