    Updated NHL 2019 by Skip & Slapshot67 - V3

    shared it on social media for ya bud.
  4. Ola buds, Normally every year I go through an intense process where I cast several votes by myself and decide a winner for the NHL'94 bud of the year. But last year, too many people got offended and for the year of not wanting to offend anyone, I've decided not to offend anyone except for those that will get offended. The bud of the year for me is a good ambassador for the community and has done something extra special for the community in the past 12 months or so. This year we will vote and I have three candidates up for the award. 1. @angryjay93 - Won the King of 94 tournament in Vancouver and has done some incredible videos of breaking down teams for the Sega Genesis version 2. Arda Ocal - announced multiple tournaments for the community, Got Raph in the Prudential Centre to play on the jumbotron and has another big announcement coming up soon! 3. @chaos - works tirelessly at setting up several leagues throughout the year and has been spending lots of time getting RetroArch set up for every one. Voting closes January 1st!

    2018 NHL'94 Bud of the Year (your turn to vote)

    Thanks for the kind words. What you guys are unaware of is that the by laws were written so specifically that I can’t be nominated. It should be noted that I wrote the bylaws. Then I was ousted as CEO of the voting committee by the board of directors Before I could change the bylaw. Im also on the board of directors. Love you guys.

    NHL'94 World Rankings List!

    The NHL'94 World Rankings are here! Much thanks to @smozoma, for coming up with the formulas to assist in the rankings. Click on the links for the entire rankings. Sega Genesis http://www.kingof94.ca/sega-genesis-rankings.html Super Nintendo http://www.kingof94.ca/super-nintendo-rankings.html
  15. Hi Guys, As announced last night on our social media, as well as our live tv broadcast on KGBmanTV, King of 94 III will be in Vancouver October 2018! As always, we wanted to give lots of lead time. Mikey is really excited about it and, of course, so am I. I thought I'd just take a bit of time to clear up a couple items and if you have any questions, fire away! Venue: So at this time we have a place we're working on but until it's 100% confirmed then I'll leave disclosing this for now. Date: We haven't picked a date yet. There's some factors that play into this (availability of the venue and Canucks home games.) The NHL releases their schedule in June. I'm hoping that the canucks have a home game on a friday or sunday night so that those travelling may want to attend. (The vegas trip was a lot of fun for this). It won't be on oct 6th as that is Thanksgiving day weekend in Canada. Price: I believe it was aqua that brought this up on discord. $94 for Vegas was much more expensive for Canadians due to price of the dollar. But this time it's in CAD, so it'll be about $15 cheaper for the guys travelling from the US if the dollar remains the around the same. I don't think we'll change the price because we just like the $94 entry fee. Leaning towards the $50-$50 range now. Mikey wants more buds there. Format: I don't think we'll see too much of change from last time (subject to time available, number of stations and number of competitors available of course). I thought the 6 games in the round robin worked well and the playoff round worked well also. What's new: Players eliminated from round robin will be put into their own tier playoffs to play for prize(s). So everyone will have a shot to win something after the round robin. What's new: 2v2 tournament: This will be either free or maybe $5 a head. Considering: Allowing players that played in King of 94 I or II to choose the opening group the want to play in. This would be done by a pre arranged draft system(ranking those players 01 through XX). Then the divisions would be filled out with all the remaining players, taking into consideration their skill level (if known). Ex. Sega: Aj gets first pick...chooses morning group A, Raph picks second and chooses afternoon group B, Ea picks 3rd...and so on. I thought this might be something that could add a bit of fun to it. (Instead of me just deciding the final groups). Where I'll need help: Systems and tvs. Mikey has some consoles and so do I, but we may need more. And Tvs will be my biggest challenge. I'm hoping the vancouver guys I know will be able to help on the TV situation. Love you guys.

    NHL'94 World Rankings List!

    @smozoma updated the world rankings. Seriously, who here doesn't love smoz?
  17. Thanks bud. Next year we'll go to a two day event. Sega one day and SNES the next. I think this will help having smoz and I in the same area covering the same things instead of being split apart. And yes...more help is better. If you and @chaos were here....you would've helped us right?

    No love for the original NHL Hockey?

    I’m not even sure that the players are different. The Soviet Union has #66 and #68 on their team. Just a perfect choice for KGBman.
  19. Apologies for the lateness on this. I've downloaded @Xstioph s2v2 rom. I was wondering if someone would be willing to quickly put together a SNES 2v2 rom I could use for vancouver with equal ratings(say all players at 80ish), like the one for Sega. And maybe include some cool pairings that guys in vancouver might like to use, by perhaps replacing some other teams with the jerseys (1980s yellow shirts, 2000s Orcas jersyss, todays unis.) naslund/bertuzzi (Orcas) boeser/horvat/petterson (todays colors) smyl/gradin (1980s) sedin/sedin (todays jerseys) Linden/Bure (no change needed) Or create one for Sega Genesis Again my apologies for the lateness..I thought of this a long time ago, and it didn't occur to me until know when i was messagin coach earlier today about 4 way adapters. It would be needed to be done by wednesday (or maybe thursday). If not, I'll make due, but just was throwing a hail mary for some help. My plan was to have an end of day tournament for 2v2 (small one). for one or both systems. Thanks in Advance(if possible).
  20. I'll be bringing a 4 way for snes and an ever drive. @CoachMac said he can bring an everdrive. can anyone bring a 4 way for Sega?
