  1. These types of resources are awesome. I would make a nice chart (no logos), and shrink it down to playing card size and have them printed in packs of playing cards. I have a site that I've used for this with great success often for $9.99 with free shipping.
  2. You definitely need to pixel down a pic of your face like Ron Barr, though the mouse-drawn MSPaint version does capture something...
  3. 3 things to consider: I think you could allow both, allow for a coinflip winner to choose the tier - or leave it to a dice roll Make the dice roll simply a guide, do not enforce it as a "rule" I really think the bottom tier should not be included in the dice roll - create 6 tiers that exclude OTT/SJ/FLA/ANA. Maybe put TB in the 6th tier With regards to these ideas, I just would hate to see a deciding game roll a "6" and have to watch an important game decided by shitty teams because of "rules".
  4. I'd love to see stream/video of the #7 LAK (LeifErikson) vs #10 NYR (spaceGhost9) series.
  5. I would add Aqualizard and Brutus to the list as well. But yes, if added to the list I would vote for Halifax for all of his tournaments involvement and fantastic social media presence.
  6. WTG Brutus, and thanks for running the league! Love WBF leagues, and thought the draft was unique.
  7. I guess I just assumed that there would be one from @aqualizard?!?
  8. Wow, lucky draw. I'll take Super Mario's Penguins.
  9. Yep, honorary Canadian. Give him his Tim Hortons travel mug, two-four of Molson Canadian, and the Trailer Park Boys DVD set. If he gets past the 6 month probationary period, he'll get his Shania Twain fan-club membership and top secret poutine recipe.
  10. I know I've signed up for GENS, can you also mark me down for SNES (preferrably in a 'B' league, unless you are running it as one league).
  11. I've told this story before.. but there was a computer shop growing up that used to rent PC games, you signed an agreement to uninstall/delete when you returned the game. It was a real chore to install these games back then - 8-10 floppy disks needed to be swapped in order to install. Here's the PC requirements at the time:
  12. In tournament play, couldn't you just "not count" the glitch goal in the final reported score? I wouldn't waste the gametime for a freebie. This is also where the game should be paused, and a decision made by a ref/judge. No one player should decide how to proceed.
  13. Good sportsmanship should always prevail, if you didn't earn the goal - you should give it back. This should be the way it is played in league or tournament play IMO. If you are playing exis, or just for fun - if you plan to play any other way (any goal counts), it should be agreed to beforehand ie. House Rules.
  14. Just wait until you figure out how to create retro leagues on NHL94PC, or figure out how to re-create the jerseys with a better palette of colours and actual logos!
  15. Hotel breakfast was pretty standard. Unless there is a kitchen/dining room attached, the food is prepackaged and reheated in a microwave.
  16. I can vouch that the Hotel J was a quality hotel (and was very reasonably priced to boot), and there is a McD's basically across the parking lot. Also, when @Edge of 94' WI says the Edge VR Arcade is a 2 minute walk, I'd say that's pretty generous. It's 2 doors down from the hotel, and would take you longer to drive than to walk. Was a great tournament last year. Fun group in GB, and Troy is an excellent host. There, Troy now owes me a beer.
  17. I remember it like it was yesterday. Get your game on TomKabs, NHL94 tournament next summer somewhere around Oakville - and then an NHL95 tourney in Toronto 2020.

    NHL95PC, Dosbox Howto

    I use a program called xpadder, it maps the keyboard presses to your controller buttons. Takes a little setup, but not too bad
  19. You need a reasonable entry fee for a few good reasons: It weeds out no-shows It tempts high-end players to travel/attend Too high, and you won't get mid-tier players As for a consolation tournament, or B-side. I don't think this should be the responsibility of the tournament organizers. However, if there are a few guys willing to volunteer their time, and the organizer is willing to allow the use of the equipment - I don't see an issue. As for not getting enough games - I didn't find any issue finding games, side games, 2v2, whatever at either of the tournaments I attended. Tournament play is fun, but the games that happen the day before, night of, day after are just as fun. Jer
  20. @kingraph still needs to sign-up. @CoachMac too. I'd like to test both GENS/SNES on Retroarch - if it's simple enough, I would consider signing up for both systems.
  21. He does mention it, as he is quite proud of being a video game celebrity. Became friends with Vince Vaughn because of it. @smozoma his dislike for Reichel was because he asked for his season-end physical before a game 7 - so that in case the team lost, he could fly home.
