Current standings and results.



No min or max of participants.  

Format. The less people the more games will be in the format.  Most of the time it will be a round robin followed by a double elimination.

System: Sega Genesis 

Rules: Hardcore 5 min periods, no line changes, manual goalie and penalties except offsides.

About.  Every Monday we have retro gaming at dmen tap in Chicago.  After the success of our local tecmo league that had 18 owners we are trying to do something similar with NHL 94.  Each week until the Edge of 94 tournament we will have a Monday tournament at the bar.  Prizes will be given out each Monday.  While we will also collect money for a season final tournament.

The only rule right now is teams are chosen each week based on skill.  The better you are based on the nhl 94 ratings, past performance in the league and reputation the lower tier your team will be.  A similar rule made our tecmo league very successful.

Once you play once you get a free entry to the finals.  Which will be a larger tournament on a weekend later this year.  We will probably have a buy in to play in that event for those that have not been able to make a Monday event.

Also later on we will hopefully at least once bust out the SNES version.

@mort1237 very much appreciate what you guys are doing in the Windy City.  I hope other similarly motivated individuals will start meeting up in their own respective communities to drive interest in this timeless classic.

On another note, hopefully you can get an additional player or 2 to make the journey with you guys in February.

+1 on this.

I absolutely love this and hope to make one sometime.
We use to do this quite often, but I have not been able to rally the local boys much anymore.
I have tried doing some different things including partnering with a local retro video game store and offering up a bounty to beat @angryjay93 but seems the folks around here only play Smash Bros, Street Fighter, etc.... :angry:

We do however have this thing called the internet.  It lets people connect from anywhere and play NHL '94.

If we had a group of guys interested in meeting up on this internet thing at designated times and playing I would get this internet thing and show up and play at designated times.

We could organize one night tourneys, 2v2 tourneys, etc... and have a blast.

I've suggested this before and @deadmeow even ran some 92 leagues I played in that had set days, times, and schedules.

I will start a new thread for anyone interested in such a thing, but I won't be holding my breath.:secret_smile:



With people learning how to get port forwarding direct connection working on RA, the experience for online NHL94 has been vastly improved.  I've attempted to get these guys to hop online, but local is how they like to get down.  I think they could be playing competitive paper slide football for all they care, just as long as they get together in person.


I do admire the effort and energy.  I'll try to be available given notice to play some online games if you schedule something that works for a decent number of people.

Also. What are “hardcore 5 minute periods”?

That's a local pornstar.  Jk.

It means we don't have any rules for gameplay established.  Tecmo variants have rules during game play like no nose tackle dive.  No rb at wr.
