Registration Link - https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-battle-of-vancouver-nhl-94-tournament-tickets-86470823561
Start off the New Year by playing in the first NHL 94 Tournament of The Decade!
It's the first annual "Battle of Vancouver" where we'll crown the very best NHL 94 player on the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo! Join us at The Charles Bar in the heart of Downtown Vancouver for a day of competive retro video game hockey action and good times. There'll be cash prizes and a trophy for the winner! Additional prizes for participants and spectators!
$25 (plus fees) to register before Friday January 10th! $30 (plus fees) to register after Friday January 10th! FREE to spectate!
Players that register before Friday January 10th get a FREE Breakfast Sandwich.
Note: Unfortunately, due to time constraints you will not be able to compete in both tournaments at the same time.
It's sixteen players, eight players in two divisions. Each division does a round robin to guarentee that everyone plays seven games! All playoff games are best of three. The top player in each division gets a "bye" into the second round of their division's playoffs with the player with the worst record being eliminated. Players ranked 2nd to 7th will be seeded in the playoff tree (2nd vs 7th, 3rd vs 6th etc). Rankings are based on the record from the round robin. After the divisional playoffs have been completed, the two finalists from each division face off in the finals to determine the champion!
***Code of Conduct:***
-Please be respectful of our host venue and of each other. Friendly trash talk is encouraged, but there is absolutely ZERO tolerance for violence, destruction of property etc. Basically in short, behave the way you would at a family member or close friend's house. If it gets to that point, you would automatically be disqualified and respectfully be asked to leave. Now that we've gotten that out of the way....
-We will provide controllers for this event, however we encourage you to bring whatever Genesis / SNES compatible controller or joystick you choose. The only requirement is that there is NO turbo function or external power needed for the input device.
-For anyone that brings their own equipment, please clearly mark your equipment so that it doesn't get misplaced.
The Battle of Vancouver will use the official King of 94 World Championship rules. Please refer to the game Rules at the link below:
***What is the VCRGC - Vancouver Community Retro Gaming Club?***
There's nothing quite like competitive gaming, but when it comes to the world of eSports there isn't enough options for people like us who prefer games of the retro variety. We want to change that and help grow a community scene with a series of monthly casual play meetups and money tournaments to make the stakes higher and more fun.
From NHL 94 to NBA Jam, NFL Blitz, Street Fighter II etc, your favourite game from the greatest era of gaming matters! Let's rekindle that fire you remember as a kid together!
