  1. I'm in the final hours of preparation for this weekend, with lots of tasks to be done yet. Due to the far smaller turnout we are expecting, and not having as many qualifier funds as there was in last year's event, we are going to make modifications to the payouts schedule, as well as how the playoffs are going to be run, as we have some studs in the mix coming this year. Last year we paid out 8 spots because we had a lot more cash in play. This year we are going back to our payout schedule of the original Modano Mo Problems event+1 more spot, which was the top 4 spots, paying out 50/30/10/10 percent of the available payout money. We are also going to modify all game series to be 2/3 in until the finals, which will be a 7 games series time permitting. If this needs to be shortened due to scheduling delays it will be announced prior, but I think a 2/3 is not enough when we have the heavyweights going. Right prize money is approximately as follows : $360 from entries $120 from beer money tournament won by @DPS who isn't coming(boo), also $120 towards beer for the group will be spent(last year they charged happy hour prices so everyone got a couple beers with this). $150 from SNES Modano II Online plus $75 to the beer fund. Estimated total payouts $630, plus $195 of beer money. Oh yeah I'm buying pizza for everyone Saturday afternoon as well. This can go up if we get some late walk ins, but the estimated player count is currently 12. 1st place $315 2nd place $189 3rd and 4th place $63 each I realize this tournament has never been about large scale payouts, but I still felt like the payouts at the top needed to have some value. Perhaps this year we'll be able to scale these up with some more online tournaments, but with the gluttony of options for so many people to play NHL94, interest had been lower than in previous attempts. Thanks for understanding, and I'll see you tomorrow and Saturday!
  2. Buds, I introduce to you you Modano Mo Problems III, the 7th "annual" tournament brought to you by Edge of 94 Midwest, with some help from our bud @LeifErikson and AV For You! Signup Link : https://tinyurl.com/modanomoproblems3 What : NHL94 Tournament for Sega Genesis Where : The Moxy Uptown 1121 W Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55408. We will be in their lobby like last year for the Friday night activities, and Saturday Genesis tournament. The Moxy Uptown is a hotel, and we'll be in their lobby for the event. Book your group rate for NHL94 Sega Hockey Tournament $99 per night! If you have any issues with booking, you can contact them via phone here: (612) 822-5020 When : February 4th, 2022, 11AM Registration, with a noon start time. Side note : There will be side retro action at the venue Friday evening Feb 3rd, completely free to all who are signed up for Saturday's action. Retro stations, 2v2, custom rom hacks will be live by 7PM, possibly sooner. We've started something of a tradition of visiting our sponsor UP/Down bar arcade prior to the retro gathering at Moxy.(both are in walking distance of one another) They have pinball, and classic coin operated arcade games, as well as a great beer selection. Cost : $50 via PayPal to trojan1979@gmail.com https://www.paypal.me/trojan1979 Make sure to use the "Friends and Family" aka "Someone You Know" for your payment. Payout : Approximately 75% of the funds collected will be paid out over the top 8 places. $10 from each entry will go towards the meal budget before this is tabulated. Additionally the prize pools may be boosted by online tournament contributions. Example, if $1,000 was being paid out 1st Place 35% $350 2nd Place 20% $200 3rd Place 15% $150 4th Place 10% $100 5/6/7/8 Place 5% $50 each. Food/Drink : The Moxy does not have a restaurant inside. We will be providing pizza during the group/bracket break. You may bring your own food or order in. We recommend eating lunch before the tournament begins if possible. We anticipate a 3:30-4:30 arrival of the pizza we will order. Those who attend both Friday and Saturday will also receive a minimum of two drink tickets. All alcohol consumed at the event must be purchased from The Moxy. Format : Group play will precede bracket play. A single elimination bracket will follow the group play phase. A Maximum of 32 players will compete and all players will advance to a bracket round. Rounds of 32/16 will be a best 2/3 series(first to 2 wins). Rounds of 8/4 will be a best of 5 series(first to 3 wins). The championship series will be a best of 7 series(first to 4 wins). Higher seed will pick tier and be player 1/home team for game 1. In game 2 the lower seed is then Player 1 and the home team picking the tier. This continues to alternate until a series winner is crowned. Rules(subject to be updated/modified so please continue to reference) : 5 minute periods, penalties on, no offside, manual goalie. The Home team(player 1) has last right of substitution, should player 2 make any additional moves. You may only substitute during a play stoppage, such as a penalty, icing, out of play puck, or in between periods. Please do not get start button happy during intermission. Your opponent may wish to make an adjustment. You may only pull your goal if you currently possess the puck as this requires pausing the game to do so. If it's in the game, it's in the game. No game mechanics/glitches are banned. Examples are pass shots, CB checks, hail mary shots, goalie interference goals, rebound goals on penalty shots, etc. A coin flip winner will be the home team(player 1) and call the tier for team selection. The opposing player is the away team(player 2) and chooses which team they want based on the tier selected. You may select from within or below the tier specified. Example: Player 1 selects Tier 2. That removes DET, BUF, CHI, VAN, MTL from selection in that matchup. Player 1 chooses CGY, Player 2 selects BOS. Player 1 and Player 2 may not play as the same team. You must take a different team in the selected tier each time. You are only permitted to repeat a team selection once you have used the other teams within that tier an equal number of times. (Exception to this rule if player 2 has selected the last remaining team available for player 1 in said tier, another team may be selected that was already used by player 1) This process resets between group play and the playoffs. Trojan and Leif Erikson are the tournament referees in the event of disputes/complaints. Genesis Tiers : Tier 1: DET, BUF CHI, VAN Tier 2: MTL, LA, CGY, WPG, BOS Tier 3: QUE, DAL NYR, TOR Tier 4: PHI, EDM, WSH, PIT Tier 5: NJD, STL, HFD, NYI Tier 6: TB, SJ, OTW, ANH, FLA Games cannot end in a tie. A new game must be started in the event of a tie game at the end of overtime. Intentional time wasting in your own zone is prohibited. You must attempt advancing the puck into the opposing zone whenever possible. Players caught abusing this may have goals deducted, or in extreme cases the game awarded to the opposing player. Players are required to take a photo of their score and report to the scorekeeper. There is a 6 goal deficit mercy rule. The game is technically over once a 6 goal difference is reached. However, if we are not pressed for time, you may play the game out, but any additional scoring will not count in the official standings. 6 goals is the max goal differential counted. Players are permitted to bring their own OEM or approved 3rd party controllers. All other equipment is provided by us. Having equipment on hand from volunteers as spares is always appreciated, but not required. Tiebreakers : Goal Differential, Head to Head, Goals Scored, Goals Allowed, Coin Flip Systems/Equipment : With the exception of our stream setup, which will use a low latency high definition display paired with an Analogue Mega SG, the remainder systems are 1st party Genesis systems on CRT displays, many of which are professional video monitors. The CRT's are provided by AV For You. Again, competitors may bring their own Genesis controllers if they so desire, 3 or 6 button. How can you help? In short, register early. Get your hotel and flight(if applicable) booked ASAP. Invite people to join you on your journey early and often. Show up on time with a good attitude, and just be an awesome bud to everyone you meet.
  3. Signups will be open early November, but we'll be returning to Moxy Uptown Minneapolis for 2023!
  4. Sign up here : https://tinyurl.com/nhl94beermoneyequalizer2022 Cost: $20 via paypal(friends and family) to trojan1979@gmail.com It's time to raise beer money and the prize pool for the eventual Modano Mo Problems III Tournament in 2023! Last year each live participant got free beer tickets thanks to participation in the last event. Rules: 5 min periods, penalties on, no offsides, line changes off. You may adjust your player lineups before the game, in between periods, or when the play is whistled dead. Home team gets a chance to make any lineup changes to counter anything the away team chooses to do. You may not pause live play unless you intend to pull your goalie while possessing the puck. To decide who plays at home, the player who drafted their team later gets to be home. Example, @angryjay93 gets the 20th pick and takes the Sharks , @kingraphgets the 10th pick and gets the Rangers. The Sharks would be the home team. The Beer Money equalizer tournament costs $20. $10 goes to the live event prize payouts, $10 goes to the beer fund for everyone who shows up in 2023 to our live event! Players will be given "lotto balls" based on their relative skill level(ranked by peers), and will draft a team to be used throughout the entire tournament. Players of all skill levels will be placed two different double elimination brackets, with the two winners facing off in winner takes all single game championship! The tournament winner also wins free entry to Modano Mo Problems III in 2023(Target weekend is pro bowl weekend, but currently unconfirmed) Intentional stalling not permitted, you must always attempt to advance the puck into the opposing zone. The game is considered over if there is a 6+ goal deficit in the 3rd period, but you may complete the game if both players chose to. Goal differential has no other impact on this tournament as the brackets are randomly seeded.
  5. Congratulations to @angryjay93 on his victory over @Bob Kudelski to win the tournament! Recap posting with stream link here :
  6. Current bracket status : https://challonge.com/modanomoproblems2snesonlinebracket Congrats to @angryjay93 for securing the #1 seed and opening round bye! Streams of select bracket series can be seen on The Retro Sports Gamer Channel here : https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRetroSportsGamer Games to start this week, as soon as this evening!
  7. I don't know if Deviled Greg from Jersey Cup Tecmo is into NHL94 at all or not, but he does have a bunch of CRT's for his Tecmo events. I'm assuming you know him from being in that area. Maybe you can collab on something. Flights into Minneapolis are reasonable if you want to join us in 2023 during the next pro bowl weekend.
  8. Just a reminder to my @Snes players @Sega and Snes players that we are going to get this moving, with our start goal being Tuesday March 1st. We have 8 players in so far, and our starting point goal was 20 players.Some of you have addressed a concern thinking that everything happens on March 1st. This is INCORRECT. You will have a generous window in which to get your group play games played. Bracket play games are scheduled when both you and your opponent can get together, again within a reasonable window. We don't want people screwing up their personal plans, or causing stress with their other league demands. Within reason, we'll work around your availability. That being said, I hope more of you will join us. We already announced a signed Chris Chelios Blackhawks jersey will be given away. If we get 30 players, we will also include a signed Brett Hull jersey to be given away. I have one more announcement to make on this. If we do get to that 30 player count, I will have a Lord Manly's Cup made for the winner. You can see what it looks like from past people holding theirs. Don't be fooled by its size. Ask @kingraph or @angryjay93, as they can confirm how substantial they are in weight and craftsmanship.
  9. Congrats to @CalmGreg on his @Modano2SNES victory! He wins $90 and free entry to Modano Mo Problems 3 in 2023. @BobKudelski26 walks away with $60 for 2nd place. Ellis wins the signed Chelios jersey! $75 has been added to the tournament beer fund $150 has been added to the live tournament payout
