  1. How many games are left? I might be able to sub if it's not too many, just to get a legit human to play against. I don't think I'm A level, but at least with Belfour and Roenick I could make it respectable
  2. Virginia is making it's debut appearance in our tournament! It's our first time adding a "commonwealth" to our map, so we're honored!
  3. As a relatively new bud on the scene, I've quickly developed some relationships within this community that I'm very thankful for. This post is meant to thank those buds who have had a meaningful impact in one way or another in 2019. These are not in any particular order, and not everyone involved follows this page. First off is Charlie Bravo. He's never played a game of 94 with us, but he's responsible for the continued creation of Lord Manly's Cup, the best trophy in all of retro sports games. Next on my list is @angryjay93. He is one of only 5 people that have atten
  4. Having new blood infused into a community likes this invigorates it. It's amazing how a childhood activity brings together total strangers from across the globe. When I started running tournaments in general(not 94 specifically), it would have been nice to have mentor. I did receive great advice from @halifax and @angryjay93 when I first poked my head in this community.
  5. We're excited to announce that we've partnered with @rcv from Vancouver. The winners of the SNES and Genesis tournaments they hold in January, will win free entry into this tournament! Check out their event on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/events/581691342398017/ Also check out their event on these very boards :
  6. I'm happy to announce, with @rcv 's blessing, the winners of both of these tournaments will be awarded free entry into the Modano Mo Problems tournament in Minneapolis on February 29th! @rcv has got the passion and drive it takes to build a successful tournament following in Vancouver. I strongly encourage all that are able to make his tournaments to do so. RCV is now part of an elite few of dedicated tournament organizers, who carry the torch, spreading the light of NHL94 throughout North America.
  7. Is your windows firewall disabled? Reboot your router/modem lately?
  8. The Moxy uptown has provided a special rate for our group if you use this link. https://www.marriott.com/event-reserva…/reservation-link.mi… This deal also includes a complimentary drink from their bar! In addition, we will have space dedicated for gaming the Friday night before the event! This offer is good until February 1st so book your rooms today! Each room has a guitar and amp in it, not joking, and every room seems to have it's own vibe and layout.

  12. Confirmed! The Pourhouse Uptown will be hosting us February 29th! 2923 Girard Ave S, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55408.

  13. Here's a quick venue update, we've had the tour of the different Pourhouse location, and it is even better suited than the downtown location for our purposes. We are waiting to have their tech guy verify Internet speeds, which should take place later in the week. We've also have a hotel block arrangement ready to fire with special rates. The hotel is in short walking distance to the tournament venue, and we can use their facilities for Exis. These might be some of the coolest looking rooms in existence. Confirmation and details to come soon....
  14. Expected players : Trojan Lil Trojan(Carter F) Mort DPS Green Majik Slapshot Sean The Retro Sports Gamer Nico B + 1 Elhmurst SNES guys- estimate 4 of them, not sure which 4 yet. Check out their site at 94league.wordpress.com. They should probably all have higher world rankings, it's just that know one knew about them until our last Green Bay tournament. Unconfirmed David Trautman + 1 Thoughts and Prayers for @IAmFleury'sHipCheck and @Brutus WWOJO?
  15. I'm creating its own topic for stat tracking and updates so far. We are holding a SNES tournament December 30th at Dmen Tap in Chicago, IL. For those of you familiar with The Retro Sports Gamer crew, this is their typical Monday night retro games throw down location. If you can't make it to the tournament, we'd love to have you tune into the stream on their Youtube Channel. Buy in is $10, winner gets free entry into Modano Mo Problems in Minneapolis February 29th 2020. All funds collected will be added to the prize pool of the Retro Sports League Championship Tournament January 4t
  16. The guy breathes NHL94. Leif travels through a storm to ditch the family vacation to attend the Green Bay tournament mid vacation, and brings Darik, then braves the weather back to his family. Now I know many others, EA included had to brave the same storm going back, but doing this mid family vacation takes special dedication. Leif's done an enormous amount of work behind the scenes to make the Midwest tournament possible to be brought to Minneapolis. Few will know just how much energy and resources he's put into making this happen already. He's an active A league player, and an
  17. Quick announcement: We are in the process of scouting for another venue. Due to legal reasons related to our use of Eventbrite, an exclusive agreement between Pourhouse Downtown and their exclusive ticket provider has forced us to refund the tickets and cancel the event on Eventbrite. Unfortunately this was not explained to us. We are exploring other great options and signups are still live. www.paypal.me/trojan1979 sending $40 or $20 for family entries will lock in your spot. Thanks for your patience in all of this. This tournament will 100% be on February 29th in Minneapol
  18. We've announced a satellite SNES tournament taking place December 30th. at Dmen Tap, the home turf of The Retro Sports Gamer crew! https://www.facebook.com/events/2448379262060952/ We're shooting for a 7PM start time, $10 entry.

  19. We are waiting to hear back from the connected hotel's management regarding a special rate. Let's hope you can make it work despite the prior commitment. I believe the person that needs contacting has been on a vacation over the past week. We hope for an answer soon.
