  1. I drew up some numbers during lunch and have come  to these conclusions.


    - At 60 overall a forwards skills become rudimentary. Only a handful of players have a skill rating of 4 (sth, pass, or shp) No player has more than one skill with a 4 rating.
    - Essentially all we are doing is weeding out who can skate and potential weight buggers. In a 6 team league there are 18 starting forwards and 12 subs. 
    - I think 55 is an interesting break. It maintains the players with a 4 skill but cuts down on the players who have 4 agility or 4 speed to roughly 1-2 forwards per team. Only 3 players would be a 4/4 skater. 
    - Weight buggers could be a bit of an issue. With such porous skating they and CB checkers really become beefed up but I focus more on weight buggers since everyone can use them easily. At 55 overall there are 15 players at 4 or 5 weight. At 50 overall there are only 6. 


    - Anything above 50 seems too high, as there isn't a premium on any skill and we will all likely have similar defenses.
    -The most interesting breaks are at 50, 48 and 46 overall. At 50 overall our starters will all likely be fairly competent. At 48 one guy will be competent and the other might be a bit rough. At 46 only a few teams will have a competent defender and the rest will be pretty lackluster.
    - I vote for 46, the other two cutoffs do allow for some decent defenders but the lack of separation between them doesn't allow for much in the way of true standouts.


    - I haven't done much research here but I have two thoughts. Either go with the 6 worst goalies (or however many teams there are) or use some cut off like 45.

  2. Hey everybody, I'm back already with another team breakdown. These things are gonna have to come out pretty often if I'm going to meet my goal of posting a team breakdown for every team before King of 94 III. I'm going to do my best to do 2-3 videos a week and thankfully I already have a couple more in reserve to post in the upcoming days so please be on the look out!

    As for today, please enjoy the video where I talk about the Buffalo Sabres!


  3. I've got a long breakdown this time but Montreal is very worthy of it as they have a lot of worthwhile players and a detailed game plan.

    I've already got Buffalo lined up and will release that in a few days. I hope to record the rest of the division this week and release that soon as well. The scripts are already set and just need recording.

    Feel free to provide any feedback!

  4. Hey Everybody, I know its been a couple weeks since I posted my most recent video but I hope the wait will be worth it as I have changed some things up.

    The most obvious change is the new overlay and I hope people like it. I think it captures my love for the San Jose Sharks and being a California native pretty well. It'll be nice to have some palm trees brightening up the cold winters most of you experience. 

    I also added time links in the description. I still haven't figured out a great way to shorten these videos up to 20-25 minutes while maintaining quality content. As I try to figure out I hope the time links to certain parts of the video makes things a bit easier for people to view.

    I'm also trying to do a better job of building up a lineup of videos so that even when I get really busy with life, I still have videos to post on a more regular basis. 17 days between videos is far too long and i acknowledge that.

    As always, feel free to voice any feedback and I hope you enjoy these visual team breakdowns!

  5. Hey Everybody, I have posted my first official team breakdown and I changed the format a little bit to make it easier to digest. The first half of the video is a more basic team breakdown  for a crowd looking for something a bit more basic. For anyone wanting a bit more information, the second half of the video talks a bit more about different matchups for Boston among other things as I play an exhibition against the CPU. 

    Since this feature is in its beginning stages, I highly encourage any suggestions to help improve the content moving forward. There are 25 more teams so there is certainly time to adjust if needed. Other than that, I hope everyone enjoys!


  6. Here is my latest video, I think it will be the final one before I get into team breakdowns. I realized it would be  important to talk about what the attributes and ratings mean in the game before I go in depth talking it for every team. This is again directed more towards people looking to obtain a greater understanding of the game in general. 

    Any and all feedback is welcome. Enjoy!

  7. Hey everyone,

    I just posted a new video today talking about the CB check. It's short but hopefully informative. 

    Things I've Been Working On:

    - The audio should be better as i picked up a mic recently. I still need to fine tune how things sound but I'm kind of tone deaf. Feel free to provide any feedback.

    - I think the game footage should be closer to 4:3 and be easier on the eyes.

    Things I'm getting around too soon:

    - I'm having someone work on a background for the stream. This should help with the layout considerably.

    - I need to reshape the webcam so that it's a bit easier to view

    - The lighting is still a work in progress. 

    It's been difficult fine tuning this as I still have a spot to consistently film from. I think once I figure that out and the background situation then the presentation should be more up to snuff. Right now I'm just trying to build good habits (putting in the work to create content) and relying on the quality of the information.

    Again, I'm open to feedback and am hoping I can continue to improve at this as I start to dive into the team Breakdowns pretty soon here.

    This one looks more compact, half the price and good ratings - Either way I agree with Smoz on all points. Plus, isn't that an SNES screenshot for the background? ;)

    @angryjay93, what software are you using to do this? OBS?


    I like the mic recommendation Chaos, now I have some pretty obvious options. 

    Yes, I'm using OBS, still pretty new to it.

    Bit of technical/presentation feedback... Haven't had time to watch the videos fully yet sorry.

    I don't know if it's intentional or has some meaning, but I think the big Jagr & Stevens text needs to be removed, it's visually distracting. Looks like a title for the video.

    The game video is stretched to widescreen, but should be more like the original 4:3 ratio. So I'd recommend making the screen more like some of the streams from other events, where the game video is 4:3 and fills more of the screen vertically, and then the facecam video is beside the game video instead of above it. (You can crop the facecam video to also be 4:3 if you want it to be bigger/taller)

    I recommend getting a microphone to improve audio quality. The one that Troy and Halifax use is the Samson Meteor, which is small and folds up nicely (for transport to tourneys):

    Thank you for the feedback Smoz, the items you pointed out are certainly some of the things I really want to work on and make better.

    I'm working on getting a more specialized overlay that should present a much cleaner looking product overall.

    I'm not quite sure how to achieve the 4:3 ratio with the game video or face cam but we can take that conversation off forum if needed to help make that process more clear to me. 

    Space for me is indeed limited as I don't have a dedicated area in which to complete my work, something small and portable like you mentioned could be perfect for me. The sound is an issue that has been brought up a few times already and I do want to find a solution to this issue.

    Within the next month I hope to have a lot of this figured out and I really do appreciate the help here.

  10. I just posted my newest video on youtube. It's the first video in my beginner series where I explain some of the finer points of NHL '94 that newer people may not know. These videos are directed towards newer people but vets are also encouraged to watch and contribute if they like.

    I'm still working on my Team breakdowns for GENS and will hopefully be able to record my video for Boston over the weekend. The script is ready to go, I just need to shoot footage.
