  1. I second removing the army green ban. I think the only matchup below LA that is fair is QUE and even then I'm not too sold on that I'll grant you STL is tough to group but I think I'd put them below WSH. STL seems substantially worse than every team above them but also fairly better than everyone below them except WSH. I would consider flipping PHI and EDM so that you could run a band for STL from Edm to NJ. (Edm, Pit, Hfd, NJ) I would put WSH above Edm and leave them out of the STL band. My argument for WSH over STL can be summed up this way. Wsh has a 6 speed player, a legit sniper in Khristch and a good role player in Ridley. Throw in one of the best and most versatile blue lines in the game and you have a great team with a weak goalie. STL has one player (Hull) who does not have elite skating and can be inconsistent with goal scoring. They lack a true play maker or speedster up front and are brutally slow. Their defense is 1 player deep, but Brown is slow too. Joseph is an okay goalie but nothing more. I think WSH is dynamic and deserves a band along the lines of (Tor, Edm, NYR, Pit, Que). I think they can go even higher but I don't want to go further until I get a feel for the reaction on this line of thinking. I guess Que still needs a band (Tor & NYR for sure). I guess LA? Dal too? But not much more than that. DAL you could give them a line from Van-NYR. They are crazy inconsistent and have no home ice adv. On the other hand their skating allows them to play with anyone and they are great on the road. I intended only to note a few things, I have clearly gotten out of hand so I'll stop now
  2. Man oh man am I still spent after that trip! Regardless, I still want to chime in and send out a bunch of thank yous to the people that help made it happen. I think Troy did an excellent job this year after doing some experimentation last year with running two tournaments in a single day. Things were seamless and flowed without a hitch. We even got done at a fairly reasonable hour which allowed us to maintain a high level of play throughout. I played nearly 30 games in 10 hours but it was hard to notice because again, the flow was perfect and I think Troy has a winning formula here for future events. Also, did I mention the dude picked me up from the airport while the tournament was going on? The guy is everywhere and does it all. He sets up the systems and stream, commentates, makes sure were fed, has tons of door prizes, runs a fair tournament, plays games, and picks dudes up from the airport even though they are over an hour late. I can not thank you enough Troy for making this all happen. As for the tournament, Raph played great in the Genesis finals. Not much I can do on offense and that is a very rare feeling for me to experience, a well deserved victory that has me going back to the drawing board. On the SNES side the Chicago crew that came up certainly made the event more lively and competitive overall. We had a lot more depth in part due to them as well as the RSG crew (also from Chicago) improving their overall ability in the game. From top to bottom the entire thing was competitive and it took some good bounces for me to overcome Raph in the finals as he looked poised to sweep the Edge of '94 yet again. I enjoyed doing what little commentary I was able to do throughout the day, it was weird being in more of a play by play role as I'm used to just providing some color alongside Troy. My main goal was just to make sure I incorporated my partner Raph and he did a great job on the mic spitting all sorts of 94 knowledge. I'm happy to hear that our performance and that incredible series between Troy & EA was received so positively. As usual, it was great to see everyone in person again while meeting new folks as well. I think that SNES crew from Chicago is poised to take the next step and will be very scary at the next tourney. I also think the RSG crew has made appreciable gains in Gens and will be a bigger factor at the next iteration of this event. Meanwhile players such as Mike Gartner, The Shield, and EA continue to be serious players and I think next year will be even tougher on both sides. Just want to send a special shout out and thank you to EA. He really took care of me on this trip as I was dragging some serious ass due to lack of sleep, headaches, and last minute travel plans. He made sure I had a place to sleep in the hotel, carted me around GB and also drove me back to Chicago through a storm that made the roads pretty dicey. He made sure I was well taken care of and that (along with Troy's efforts) made me whole journey possible. I cant thank you two enough and I appreciate everything that this community is. Lastly, we missed you Coach, hope to see you in GB next year and I'm doing my best to get to NYC in April. I will be in touch with you.
  3. I've been going kind of ham with playoff runs lately, here is a link below to my spreadsheet: I've been stat tracking in a similar manner to Eman while using these rules -5 min periods -penalties on except for offside -Playing the toughest matchup in the 1st rd -Score by any means possible My goal was to do a run with every team and I accomplished that but I was still tempted to play more games. To satiate my desire I started using 2nd, 3rd, & 4th lines along with backup goalies. I havent included the backups with the main team stats quite yet but you can see the performances I have completed within the team pages. I have found this to be a fun and refreshing way to play the computer when I have a spare 15-30 minutes.
  4. Please feel free to replace me. I'm in the process of moving and will be out of town the next few weekends. All in all it doesn't leave much time for playing.
  5. Oh, I forgot this hidden goody. Push the tab button and all the players will have the jersey number displayed. Push tab again to turn it off.
  6. You can do a hook/hold on defense by pushing B and C together on your gens controller. Also escape is the pause menu.
  7. Pretty sweet that they have majors still. I remember it took until 96 on gens to get double minors and majors.
  8. I don't have EARE or any of the modding stuff to verify this so I'm hoping someone can help me out here. In the manual all the expansion teams beside SJ have a low home ice adv and a low road ice disadvantage (0/0). In Smoz's table he lists OTW, ANH, and FLA at Avg home and brutal road (1/3) with TB remaining at (0/0). What are the actual home/road ratings for OTW, ANH, FLA, & TB within the game presets?
  9. I'm very open to hear ideas and talk about this topic, so it's unfortunate that Coach removed his post. I understand it is opening up a can of worms, but this is an important conversation to have as a community. I'd hate to see people get discouraged to have a discussion in attempt to make things better for us as a whole. Even if we can't agree, I think the healthy discussion is extremely important. The more people that speak, the more we know and the better we can make educated decisions instead of ones based on perception.
