segathon Posted March 13, 2020 Report Share Posted March 13, 2020 (edited) Update: originally scheduled for Aug 2020 then world went to crap. But now it's this October 14-15 2022. See bottom post for updated info Thought I'd make a more official post here as we are months away now for the NHL 95 World Championship. Would love to have more buds join us. Ask questions here and feel free to reach out.. Gonna copy/pasta from what I have at http://www.segathon.com/nhl95worldchampionship/ NHL 95 World Championship http://www.segathon.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/NHL-95-Tribes-MapRetro.jpg Where: Toronto Waves Egaming When: 2021 Who: NHL 95 Tribes from across the World from USA, Canada and Finland THE STORY: Many kids in the 90’s grew up playing the NHL series on the Sega Genesis (and Super Nintendo) and have fond memories of it. Leagues in college dorms and one night tourneys sprouted up among friends…..and some of those events are still happening today 25 years later. The plan is for all of the NHL 95 Tribes to unite for one large Tournament on August 1st in Toronto at Waves Egaming. You have a crew of buds that want to make the pilgrimage? Send the Commish an Email at email@example.com and we can add your to the tribe list. BELOW ARE THE TRIBES OF 95 http://www.segathon.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/presidents-day-segathon.jpg Segathon: Tourneys started in 2003. 10-25 guys mostly from same home town in Minnesota play a 1 night tourney for the Belt. www.segathon.com http://www.segathon.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/NHL95_Boston_Semi_Team_Photo.jpg Michigan/ Boston: Been holding Tourneys since College as well, and also compete for a Belt.

When I googled NHL 95 they came up and saw their funny event recaps, reason we made segathon.com http://www.segathon.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/giphy-300x263.gifOther Tribes Not Pictured Yet: New Jersey Tribe: that made the treck all the way to Madison Wisconsin for a NHL 95 Tourney Deer Hunt Camp Tribe: in the Hinterlands of Canada that play while chasing Wild Game Riker’s Island Rules Camp: A Deranged group that plays 20 Minutes Periods There are many other NHL 95ers out there from St Louis, to Weezer Tour bus to Parts Unknown etc.Currently having a United Nations Email Chain between ranking Tribes to figuring out details, here is what we have so far VENUE Waterloo has booked Waves E Gaming in Toronto http://www.segathon.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/waves-set-up-94-300x225.jpg https://wavesegaming.ca/ Event Fee, looks $15 a person for venue, right now but that could change. May add a shirt for event etc. There will be no Prize money though, just bragging rights They have a bunch of old school Tube TVs so we will be playing how the game was meant to be played. BOOZE AND FOOD. We have a beer sponsor and working on to make sure we get a license for the weekend Looking into a food truck RULES Below is tentative, could change but this is where we are at right now Round robin with 8 pools (depending on how many players, we’ll divy up the pools accordingly. So it might be 8 pools of 4, or 5 , or 6 etc). Play each person in your pool once in the round robin. Top 4 from each pool moves on to 32 team elimination bracket. First two rounds are best 2 out of 3 Quarters, semis and finals best 3 out of 5 5 minutes periods Manual goalies No penalties, no offsides, no line changes Madison Rules – so one player picks the two teams, and the other guy gets to choose which one he wants to use.
