  1. How did you go about determining the groups out of interest? Group F is looking fierce
  2. Can't believe the time is upon us already. Where has the summer gone? I havent allowed enough excitement to build yet and my thumbs definitely are not ready
  3. I'm very impressed with the development of this thread.. What's the current count at? I've been doing my part to solicit the registration of several SNES players, all of whom are of high skill level but have never played on this site. I predict there will be a great many more of these non-site players than originally expected. I just find it really weird that anyone would have played GENS 94 growing up because I find the idea really difficult to understand that you would choose the Gens system over a SNES. How could you grow up (with or without vaccines) with no Mario World, mario kart - hell, even mario paint - in your life?? Just too bizarre for me to understand. SNES goona get it done!
  4. Are we allowed to spread the good word to 94 players who are not a part of this website or are we still in an early signup phase?
  5. Anyone around for some SNES games? I need to start getting back in shape for the tourney!
  6. Just signed up too! Gonna be sweet! Still too early to speak of any details, but...Toronto's my home town, I got the wonderful SNES system, and I gots the multi-tap and comptrollers.. Also if anyone has any Toronto specific questions I'm happy to help. If you've never been before and you're looking for some nice spots to check out (if you're not playing 94' all weekend that is) drop me a line and I'd be happy to make some recommendations.
  7. Very very cool! I know this is old news to everyone but I'm just getting around to it now! So cool! I'm sure by now McMikey you've found just how awesome and helpful this community can be. I used to be active on this site many years ago but frustrations over never winning a championship and a busy work schedule sent me into an early retirement. I'll always remember tho the good natured folk on here and the relative absence of difficult and negative personalities. The tournament you have planned in Toronto this September is too good to be true. I would never forgive myself if I didn't take the 15 minute subway ride to partake! Just dusted off the old console and have begun some rigorous weekly thumb excerises to get me back in shape for the big day! You probably have it all sorted out by now, but I hope your doc can give ample if not equal consideration to SNES!! For me, NHL 94 has always been a SNES game. Gens is so foreign and alien to me. I think you will find folks on here to be very passionate about the two 94 worlds and this could make for some entertaining content. You might be so bold as to say that it sits at the center of ANY conversation you might want to have about the game. Don't be afraid to ask those hard hitting questions! Which version is the version? Who is the better 94player - a SNES player or a GENS player? Is one easier than the other or is one more sophisticated and just a little bit more perfect?? I'm obviously very biased in the matter - I think it might be the case that most people side with the version they played and experienced first. I hope you can find some folks here or elsewhere that have informed experience in both camps, but any true story of 94 has to touch on this question at some point. oh yeah..SNES!
  8. Oh man how did I miss this?! Goes to show you should never stop visiting this website.. Do you have any other events lined up for Toronto? ..aside from that sweet tourny in September which I will certainly be attending!
  9. I will be playing more games tomorrow and this weekend if people can wait until then! For real!
  10. The only way I know of to score a pass goal consistently is on the penalty shot where you know that the other player is controlling his/her goalie. Take a small step to the left or right, then drive straight up and pass. You'll often score unless the other player can react quickly enough to stop a pass when theyre expecting a slow deke then a shot.
  11. Sorry for my absence gents. I had an unexpected trip to Vancouver where my availability was low. I'm back now but I decided it would be a good idea to smash my finger with a hammer. So I'm still nursing that small wound but I anticipate being back in top form to play lots of games this weekend! SDL lives on!
  12. I'm around, I've just been especially busy this week during the days which is usually when we have to play our games due to time zones. I'm about to go to Vancouver for the next two weeks so that may make it easier for us to connect.
  13. I didn't realize the ROM would be updated so quickly! Nice work. Unfortunately, I've only had a chance to look at it now.. Sorry to be a bother, but Vernon's GvR/Pas is rated at 55 but is only 45 on the ROM.
  14. Now that we are nearing the end of the draft I really think we should all consider the length of the season one last time. I don't mind how long it took for the draft to be completed (in fact I think we all did pretty well - except maybe a little slow in the final rnds) but I think that since we all put so much effort into it we should enjoy the teams we've made for longer than a 4game per team season. I'm a firm believer that a 6game format keeps the competition level much more interesting, and the final playoff standings much closer and more competitive. I really like the long committed season, and although it takes a bit longer to complete, the payoff at the end is that much better. Since the playoffs is more or less a fixed length of games, I also think the 6 game format offers a more balanced ratio of regular season games:playoff games with a 14 team roster. I think it also would make sense in terms of running successive seasons. The time it takes from the beginning of the draft to the end of the playoffs (with a 6game format) would seem to fit quite naturally with two long seasons - one for fall and one for spring (like classic, but starting earlier and ending later and with a break in the summer because the consensus is that people's availability drops off considerably in the summer) Is the biggest fear that people won't play all their games? Well we actually did pretty darn well last season so I should think things will only get better, with any further non-committed players slowly weeded out and excluded from future seasons. Finally, think of the stats. Think of Dan's beautiful stats that we have all come to love! Wouldn't it be a shame for us to already change the system and throw off continuity in what will hopefully become a long stats history? We would have to forever put an asterix next to first season stats and then think a lot harder when trying to figure out if our Terry Yakes or Lonny Loaches managed to match the performance of a first season Selanne or Lindros. THE STATS! Let's have a final discussion folks. My vote lies firmly with the more sophisticated, challenging, and gritty 6game format!
