  11. I asked several well known coaches 10 questions, with the idea of getting to know them better. Here are their answers, in their own words, in alphabetical order. (Any that come later will be in order of posting.) Now that several have come in, there are some interesting patterns. Some things that keep coming up: The game is easy to learn, hard to master (or some variation). Also, people loving the era (something special about the NHL in early to mid 1990s). Average age is around 40, and it is not uncommon for someone to join the forum early on, but then be on hiatus many years before
  12. I will go Toronto, my home town, for the 1st time!
  13. Some of the best players in the world use a Gens original gamepad. ( @angryjay93, @IceStorm70, @kingraph spring to mind.) But some real talent in the past used keyboards, too. ( Plabax, FPB, Depch, and many others.) I use a gamepad, but I definitely felt I could tell when someone was using a keyboard on the other side. They seemed to be able to make subtle movements better, and especially were good at doing a dead stop, something not easy to do (for me at least) with a gamepad. So I think a keyboard is an advantage, though I believe for most it is a hard fought one; I know firsthand
  14. The only one of those things listed that is a true glitch is "goals after the whistle". IMO "goals after whistle" is in a spot all it's own: a true mistake in the game that: 1. allows a goal to count that happened outside of game clock time 2. takes away a penalty shot attempt Pass shots, CB checks, even a goal at the buzzer (0:00) are not true glitches. (As some of the ROM modders have noted, the latter happens with a fraction of a second left, which gets rounded to "0:00" on the clock, since there aren't hundreths of seconds to display.) Note: That said, I totally get the tourname
  15. This exact thing just happened to me and Chaos. (Well really, me!) 10 seconds left, he "scored" after whistle to tie it up. Was not even enough time to do makeup goal. (Of course he then wins in OT, lol). I realized I don't care enough to do anything about it, at least in this unlikely sitch, where there is no time left. If there was time, yeah, give me back a goal or whatever. Or if it was live tourney and I travled and paid $$, maybe ask for a Commish Ruling. But when the other guy is a good guy, no big deal. At least that is how it played out. (Chaos doesn't want to upload game
  16. People have been waiting a long time. Don't see the harm in doing a "soft" start sooner, and if it gets stalled, no biggie. (Besides, some of us have *more* time during Thanksgiving.) (Just a thought. Not trying to complicate stuff.)
  17. Might be some sort of inside joke. In 92, there is a guy there, but he appears to have only one leg. In 94, there is just the one leg. (Perhaps the missing leg from 92?) This *is* a weird quirk...
  18. You mean the shot where the puck teeters on the corner, where the crossbar meets the side? Literally the puck hangs there for like 200 milleseconds, like the game is crunching some serious numbers to decide "in or out". (Though when this happens, it is always in.)
  19. Another quirk I like, are the goofy goals. Like when you slide a pass from center ice, and it on occasion it goes five hole. I have never seen it happen to Roy or Eddie, but the netminder tiers under those giants are all vulnerable. On Hrudey it happens a lot, lol. It kind of mirrors real life: there *should* be some glitchy goals like that. And the same way the seconds actually go faster in the game, the goofy goals (pass from from center ice, rebound off boards then off goalie's butt, A button launch down the ice that lofts straight into the net) happen more frequently, too. But it a
  20. Two GENs "quirks" that I like are pass shots, and CB checks. The CB check, I am sure you know, counteracts the weight bug. Because both of these quirks require extra skill to execute, I feel they actually enhance the game. (Pass shots in particular would suck if they were easy to pull off. Might even wreck the game.) (Interestingly, I am weak at CB checking, and pass shooting. But I give myself a D in each category. I am hoping to get to a letter grade B level in my career. When I started playing online I was an F -- didn't even attempt (or know about) either.)
  21. It's true. Momentum can change, plus the other guy does not get a penalty shot. There is no perfect solution. But if I am reading things correct, 6 of 6 guys say they think the sporting thing to do is give a goal back and swallow the missed penalty shot.
  22. I think the *official* tournament rules are, a goal is a goal is a goal. But that is out of necessity. I know I would not accept a glitch goal. Like Jer said, I want to earn my goals. I guess in tournament play, with no time left, I would ask for a ruling (and insist I am fine with a "fair play" decision, not a black and white rule). The 60 second thing -- or however much time is left at glitch goal point -- sounds fair.
  23. But even if you can't remember, it looks like you think the "right" thing to do is give a goal back, right?
  24. I have played hundreds of hours, and recall many strange things and glitches. Some glitches are more "fixable" than others. One thing I am wondering: When a penalty shot is called (immediate whistle) and the puck somehow finds its way into the goal after the whistle -- which is an obvious glitch -- what do people do, in league games? If I "scored" a goal like this, I would pull my goalie, and let my opponent have a goal to even things out. What do you think?
  25. There was recently a Europe League. Check out channel #euro94 on the Discord thingy... A handful of European dudes are there, mostly from Finland, but I *think* I remember a dude from Germany. Welcome!
