  1. Aww I want a text summary so my brain understands
  2. LD: Hynes RD: Kasatonov LW: Emerson C: Bondra RW: Borchevsky X: Steen 3rd D: Fetisov G: Essensa conflicts - Katatonov is 7, and I'd like him to be something else. Leave Emerson as 7 please.
  3. I'm in. And I'll be back in B next year once I promptly get last place haha.
  4. 17 years later @Red is it still working?
  5. I'm in for whatever league I fit. gotta support the ROM creators who put in so much time and energy into this.
  6. okay halifax, and once you remove the 95 trolls, who are the winners? this is what inquiring minds want to know.
  7. Name, age, occupation, location, system Dan, 37.8, self-employed marketing professional with a focus on B2B bartering, Regina SK, Genesis mostly, but experiencing mild mid-tier success with SNES lately too. What hobbies or other interests do you have? poker, Rocket League, ice hockey, Spikeball, tennis, typing, Scrabble. When did you get introduced to the game NHL'94? How did it happen? as a kid, my bro and I were poor and we had to self-fund our sega and games purchase. We bought '93, didn't have enough for '94 or '95, then bought '96 and '97 so we never knew the joy of NHL94 unfortunately. When I heard there was a big following around it, instead of joining I searched out a '97 community and without finding one, gave up on the thought. It wasn't until a local Regina brewery (Rebellion Brewing) hosted an NHL94 tourney in their pub that I got involved and started practicing. many skills transferred from 97 while others did not. When did you get introduced to nhl94.com and the online community? Were you playing between these two dates? (That is, between first becoming aware of game, and first becoming aware of nhl94.com.) it was exactly at the same time, basically November 2019. What are a couple things that you love about the game? I love that every type of "cheap" or "glitch" goal that one can score can be combatted by manual GC or some other method. And I further love that when a good goalie tries to combat those moves, there's reverse moves (like the Sebe slip) that can be done. The game just has so many layers. I also love that there's people that are digging into the code to find out how things work and deconstruct it. so many years later, if I was a developer, I'd be so proud that people care so much about it still. Are you a gamer in general? What other games do you play? oh ya. Rocket League, Apex Legends, Risk, CIV 6, GTA V, poker. In Scrabble, I'm ranked about 1450 in the ELO thingy. I can play a 3 min game and still get multiple bingos. Nobody from this group could beat me 1 in 10 games I'm thinking. Do you follow hockey in real life? Any other sports? Yes, big Leafs fan, thus the screen name. I just enjoy watching; I don't enjoy stats or research or prospects or trades or anything. I enjoy tennis, Spikeball, but my knees are getting bad with age. If you have been to a live tourney, what was it like meeting the real people behind the screen names? Any big surprises? It was great in Minny. But I was still so new at the time. Everyone was so welcoming and nice. No big surprises. I think there'd be more surprises if we had a tourney in Vegas. I'd learn a lot about people by seeing them play blackjack and poker lol. What is behind your screen name? (Origin story, if there is one.) it was my original poker username and just stuck with it. dan (name) TML (toronto maple leafs) 7 (fave number) Favorite NHL94 player in game (and why)? depends.... Clark was my childhood idol, but some of my faves in game would be Gilmour, Emerson, Fleury, Selanne... I'm sure you can see a trend.
  8. I thought this was NHL 94 community vote?
  9. posting it on here as per the advice of some of the players, for those forum lurkers who don't tune in much on the discord. So over the last year, @Tickenest has worked hard to create and update his own ranking system. He somehow scours the site for games played and then adjusts the player rating based on the ELO formula (more points for beating people that you shouldn't, etc.) He factors in teams and skill of coach. It's pretty cool! Well, I used that as a starting point, and created/implemented into the discord server, an ELO Bot. What does it do? Basically it's both a matchmaking system and automatic skill rating adjuster. You just click "join queue". Someone joins you. You use the bot command !segamatchup or !snesmatchup and you are given two teams. Then you !flip to see who gets to choose what team. Other person picks home or away. After you play, you go back to the discord and you each click on the winning team. Points are automatically awarded and taken away based on what *SHOULD* have happened. ie. if a 1900 level player is playing a 1300 level player, they should win about 19/20 games. If they lose, they will lose large. If they win, they win small. In exactly one month, there's been a whopping 750 (SEVEN-HUNDRED AND FIFTY) ELO games played. Of course since we're all adult children here, there's been a few spats here and there, but overall really good feedback so far. Thanks to @jay22(whalersmightwin), @bvish, @skills324, @LeifErikson, FutureKingofNHL94, and @TDubs for all doing over 100 GP this month and helping the ELO be a big success. Special thanks to @Wittgensteinfor coming out of retirement to play all those late night hours with me, @corbettkband @hokkeefan, and for @chaosfor beating all the big guns, and for @smozomafor trusting me enough to give me admin status so I could set up the bot. I'm writing this so in case one reason you don't play NHL94 right now is that "it's too hard to find a game", this makes it considerably easier. Just seeing a guy sitting there in a queue that says "1 of 2" means someone is way more likely to say "f**k it" and join your game. That's the biggest benefit of this system for sure. The points just make it a bit more serious and allow you to track your progression over time. Thanks for reading and hope to see you out on the ELO-ice soon!!

  11. okay thanks @chaosbut is there set etiquette what to do when it happens? like one time I got burnt so bad and I kinda smashed my controller thinking it was in, but it paused. then when it unpaused, it ended up hitting post. but I gave him the goal because of my error. But in a general sense, what does one do if the guy is making an offensive move and you pause? what if he's just in the zone? what if he's in neutral, etc. should be codified, even though it's very rare.
  12. I can't find any thread dedicated to accidental pauses. What's the etiquette on that?
