  2. Save the dates! We are headed to Waves EGaming September 21 and 22nd! A 13,000 square foot video gaming centre that is designed for large scale video game tournaments. And at least 20 CRTs for us to use. Sega Saturday and Super Nintendo Sunday! More info to come...
  3. Today
  4. The king of 94 tournament is changing cities for fall 2019. We tried as best we could to find a venue in New York that fit our needs and budget, however we were unsuccessful. We (me)will share the new venue soon!
  5. Yesterday
  6. I opened it. Played it once. Beat the world snes record. Then i smashed it with a hammer bud.
  7. Halifax tactic #1:Get them all right. Halifax tactic #2: Pick the Canadian teams as far as they can go!
  8. Last week
  9. MOAR pics (also something I want to do more of in future tournies) Registration Awesome enhanced Nomad from @crazygoalie33! EA vs Coach in early RR play (schedule was on big projector) Two Ranger legends facing off! Mystery box was a beezer helmet! Holding the hardware
  10. A shortcoming of Challonge is the lack of triple elimination. They have a Feature Request list, and the triple elimination feature is 26th on the list (which puts it on the 2nd page). Can some buds sign in (using your google or facebook account) to their feedback site and add votes to the triple elimination request? Here's the link: https://feedback.challonge.com/forums/44455-feature-requests/suggestions/7033452-triple-and-quadruple-elimination-options Click the "Vote" button on the left Click the F or G for facebook or google and authorize (use "Edit this" to limit what account info they get access to) Click 3 votes (or 1 or 2 if you want..). Maybe we can get it into the top 20 and on the first page.
  11. Every year, I look at my bracket like "ya, this is correct. there's no way this goes down any other way." And then I get like 4 of 8 1st round series right.
  12. Hi @halifax I will purchase this from you for $1 more than you paid for it. You will be lauded for your ability to turn a quick profit. Whaddaya say?
  13. Did anyone pick Columbus and ny islanders in round one?
  14. Received the game in the mail today. Thanks @xot82! Everybody at work wants me to open it up. I'm thinking if it sat in the box this long, it's probably turned gold.
  15. I want to hear more about the gay frogs @kgman
  16. First and foremost, THANK YOU to @Evan, @chaos and @MikeGartner22 for putting together a successful tournament! In case you didn't know, these buds are awesome and everyone contributed to the success of this tournament in different ways! Special thanks to @corbettkb, who took the time to show @CoachMac around NYC, help out in any way he could, and just being completely selfless all the time. He even picked up the food tab Friday! An amazing asset to the '94 community and amazing competitor as well! Glad we were able to hang out for a couple days! Speaking of Coach, I am a fan and was very happy that he could make it to the tournament. I hope you had a great time, and that your trip was worthwhile. I promise to do the trip out to Nevada one day to hang out in your neck of the woods (mountains?) when I can score some cheap flights! As I reflect upon the weekend, it always comes down to the same thing -- enjoying spending time with the 94 community, both known and all the new buds I got to meet! So happy that @IAmFleury'sHipCheck was able to make it from Chicago and @kylewat took the Amtrack from Baltimore! I haven't seen Zep since Toronto; it was great to hang out and for him to show how strong of a '94 player he truly is! IMO, he is usually underrated because of his play style. EA, as usual, is great to talk to all day and I thought he played better than I have seen in some time! So appreciative that you come down and I cherish the signed '94 box that has become your calling card. Many many thanks! Great to see @skoolyardpuck again, great to hang/chat and play '94 with this guy. Hope to continue to see you around! @eggink444 and @da94wookiee came back from the '94 graveyard, and also hopped on for some great color commentary on the stream! Cheers to you guys! @aepurniet was a pleasure to meet you in person, and I think you officially ordered the first drink! Hope you had a great time bud! @Sdogg made the trip into the city and he brought the great energy, and was close to convincing his lovely wife to play! @crazygoalie33 hasn't missed any tournaments and seems to get some rough draws, this one included, playing wookie, Tex and eggink in the RR, only to meet eggink in the opening bracket losing a close 3 game set! @Bad Moon Rison , always appreciate the kind words and insights. You have run many Tecmo tournaments, from which we have taken ideas from, and love to see you continue to enter and play '94 tournies! (sorry to have knocked you out of the tourney bud). @banditra101801 (George) - happy you were able to make the tournament and even play in place of a no-show! Hope you had a great time! Finally, all the buds like @superfan99, Chris O. Matt, Ron D, and anyone who made the tournament that I may have missed, I hope you all had a great time! I encourage any/all feedback. At the end of the day we (whether us who ran NYC, or others like @halifax and @Edge of 94' WI) just want to make sure we're doing the best we can to make it enjoyable for all. Other thoughts LOVED * Random starting order vs pre-ranking * Modified swiss style round robin format, followed by elimination game. The swiss style led to some amazing round 3,4,5 games! * Buds who jumped on for streaming commentary. I will be making a highlight reel from the day to share in the near future! * Overall community, everyone is so cool, which makes running a tournament much smoother than I think. I'm constantly worried about things and I shouldn't underestimate you guys (all of you). CONSIDERATIONS * Handling of no-shows. Expected 1-2, did not expect 4. Also expected more guests. * Streaming set up. In short, I think a longer RCA cable will allow me to have the streaming/commentators a little further from the players. I also want the output to be broadcast for a larger crowd to see. * Add team and home/away to data capture for future analytics. While I fear over-complicating score entry, this has run very smooth for us in the past few tournies. Small tweaks to the scoresheets. Finally, on my own personal play, I am happy to have come out on top this tournament. My final opponents were Lupz, Tex and Zep, who, I feel, each could have won this tournament themselves. I got Lupz in game 01 early, and I knew he was not playing up to speed. It's almost like a sucker punch to the gut to start a fight, I was lucky to get one so quick. Game 02 went down to the wire, and 8-7 OT victory for me. Given our history, that was more of what we should have expected. Lupz played well and had about 2 instances when his player didn't shoot the puck! Easily could have been a game 03. Tex had just beat EA in two close ones, and I knew EA was playing well. Tex also beat me in the RR with an amazing comeback during our 4-0 vs 4-0 match. I picked VAN-DET and Tex was nice enough to give me Vancouver, a team he knew l liked (Detroit isn't bad either, lol). Second game was another speed session with DAL and WPG. Looking back, I was locked in, holding Tex to 1 goal for both games, not an easy task with those teams and his caliber of play. Finally, Zep was busting people all day, I had called his earlier matches against MikeGartner22. Game 01 was a disaster for me, Zep kept putting on the pressure and I couldn't get my Rangers to shape up. Game 02 was the opposite, where I was able to go up quick with Philly over Zep's Blues. So both of us had lopsided games to start, leaving a game 03. It was my turn to pick teams, and I went with Chicago / Buffalo, a high powered matchup that I like either way. In hindsight, that may have been a mistake since both teams have amazing home ice and Zep was home. Zep chose Buffalo and I had Chicago. If I lost this tournament with JR & Belfour, I had no excuses! Well, the game unfolded with JR on a mission! He single handily took over the game, scoring all my goals. I felt in control of the entire game and having Eddie in net was the ultimate security blanket. Proud of the victory, and though I felt like a boob for winning a tournament that I helped organize, everyone I played told me otherwise, so I feel better, Until next time (LI Retro Expo Aug 10-11th!)
  17. I think I had all other forum names listed on the results except superfan99. Also, I updated the teams from all the sheets I had and have a bunch missing (including all of my own, ugh). If you see teams missing and you remember the game, let me know!
  18. I think I heard this on the stream, "4 players in the box!" ? Great to see new (to me) names doing well. Watched the whole stream (had to watch part the next day), good announcing by all the various people. I'll get the results into the rankings when I can. @kingraph: forum names for the rankings.. john smith = superfan99? any others I may not know? Scott S (not MikeGartner) is Scott Stueve from previous tourneys? "Scott Stueve Prior Lake, MN, USA 926" any hometowns/states you can tell me will help, otherwise i'll just put "NY" as where they're from
  19. ive won 94 leagues in the past. dont really have any interest in it anymore. just looking for a casual game of 98. if anyones interested hit me up!
  20. It’s a travesty indeed. The game and those guys should be in the hall of fame. Also im thinking we change the name of this thread to “ JeffBC’s awesome Super Nintendo thoughts.”
  21. You may have an uphill battle awaiting you, but I wish you the best in your search. Finding games for NHL94 while in a dedicated NHL94 Discord channel can be challenging at times(varying schedules, existing league commitments, ). My experience has been most people seem to get their games in via league play. Being isolated from a dedicated community for 98 obviously compounds your challenges here. I believe many have moved onto Retroarch, if you'll head over to http://nhl94online.com/ you can get the downloads people use there. Get connected to the NHL94 Discord https://discord.gg/kvYSWWC, make some friends, and start playing NHL94(not 98) at first. Perhaps if you've put in enough time with some buds, they might be willing to try a NHL98 rom with you. Just don't force feed it to them at first. After some time, I was able to get a couple guys to try out Street Fighter 2 Special Championship Edition. At this time I'm not aware of any dedicated community around the 98 ROM, otherwise I'd steer you in that direction. I don't personally play 1998, but if you're around on Discord, my handle is Trojan #1343. Maybe we can give it a try.
  22. I've been using snes9x-1.57 to play NHL 98 on. Works great. Anyone wanna play online?
  23. Round Robin Results - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vSLtsA5SPXzZzFy9dg9PtKTIbu-zrv4dwRGPBHFmgypWYByqksceO-G3rWzkW76lElde1G-DFmleuAL/pubhtml# It looks better in the sheet than published, but you should be able to follow. I did not fully think through the "bye" situation for no-shows as it deals with Goals For and Goals against. We used GF-GA as the tiebreaker within same records. So for those who got a bye victory (myself included), it was 1-0 and just a 1 goal victory. The round robin format was really set for 32, so I'll noodle on that some more for the future. I also have most of the score sheets with the team data. I'll try to add that sometime this week for analysis purposes. Same for the bracket play. I didn't initially build it into the model as it's overwhelming to track if you don't have dedicated admin people. All the organizers were also participating. More thoughts to come, but wanted to post this first.
