[September 21-22, 2019 - Toronto] - KING of '94 - 4

Recommended Posts

Mikey shipped 5 systems for each console. I was going to bring some consoles but i realized that the trophies (6 of them) take up space(and weight) for the plane. So I may only bring one or two.

If anyone playing with original system controllers would like to try replacement conductive pads, I have a bunch for SEGA 6-button.

Get that new controller feeling.

I can also get SNES and SEGA 3-button if anyone is interested (get my on PM, or on Discord) and I'll order some and bring them with me.

Thought this CRT just has AV / composite. It actually has RGB hookups! Can’t believe this was on my block. Might end up keeping it for myself.

Got to be a trojan horse of some kind.  break it open with a sledgehammer and be ready to kill whatever is hiding inside.

Relax, it's not like NHL'95 is in there or something.

I need some player previews or something so I can live vicariously through you guys.  Whats OG champs Mikael's odds.  Does he have the juice or did we win in a time when players smoked darts between periods?

Home town advantage seems to be a thing, so I think he's got a good chance. But we've got 5 of the 6 finalists all attending, plus AJ and Raph, so it's wide open on the SNES side. Like 7 guys with a shot. EDIT: 8 guys, Jason To (IlivetoNHL94) was 4th in Toronto, but has a large inactivity penalty in the rankings.

Sega on the other hand has the KingRaph-AJ duo who are head and shoulders above everyone else, at least in terms of event rating (1200 is perfect, ~1150 is "2nd", so both appear unbeatable by the rest of us.

After that there's a kind of rock-paper-scissors thing between myself, corbett, and EA (corbett always beats me, i have had EAs number except he started beating me in exis so who knows now, and I think corbett and EA split games?), so it kind of depends on our routes through the tournament. Clockwise is coming and putting a wrench in the usual results - he's a Blitz champ so he could be anywhere from 1st to 6th! 

After that, though, I think it's incredibly competitive. Kevin Brennan was I think 5th in Vegas (so maybe I should be listing him in the 2nd tier above). Michael Sroka and Roberto Z made the final 16 in Toronto 2015. Jer  just missed the final 16 with a 5-3 record (unfortunately got beaten 3 times by Roberto in the triple elimination! I may have not "cross-polinated" the bracket correctly). Trent Young has beaten both me AND AJ in Saskatoon (single games, not final result). Eric Lefaivre won the Hartford tournament and had a tough group in Vegas so didn't make it to the bracket. So while the right side of these standings may look a little sparse in terms of bolded players, the Sega side is still looking like a great, competitive field.

EDIT: Also DPS is pretty good I think. Not sure about Mort.

PS: error, it's Mike Norwood (SNESboy) who is coming, not Mike Viske
