What is the 2 v 2 tournament?

If you registered for the 1 v 1 tournament then you can also compete in the 2 v 2 tournament. The 2 v 2 tournament is played using an edited rom with only two skaters aside. Think "NBA JAM" style of play. You pick your teammate and you play against two other players. If you don't have a teammate and still want to participate, we'll help you find someone to play with. The 2 V 2 tournament will be double-elimination bracket format. More details to come based on the number of participants.

What is the 1 V 1 tournament format?

The 1 V 1 tournament will be a round-robin followed by a bracket tournament. You are guaranteed at least 6 games. Qualifiers will compete in the King of 94 bracket. The remaining players will compete in a consolation bracket. More details to come based on the number of participants.

Can I register for both SNES and Genesis?

Yes, of course!

Will there be Youtube videos of this tournament?

Likely Twitch live streams, maybe later rounds will convert to YouTube.

There's not a cat's chance in hell of me entering this, as I would get my ass handed to me(!), but I'd be keen to watch any live streams if it ends up being on Twitch.

There will be a Duke of 94 "consolation" bracket for those that don't move on from the round robin in case you change your mind. Its $20 CAD. which is probably like Two pounds. :)

@halifax - Apologies for the tardy response.  I have only just seen this, having just logged on for the first time in a few weeks.  For some reason, I have not been receiving email notifications (but that is an issue with my secondary account rather than this place).

I might have missed this somewhere, as I have been all over the place recently, but will this be available for online viewing?  I wouldn't mind throwing a few bucks the way of the tournament in any case if it helps towards the running of it, especially given how much I get out of the site for free. 

Next year, I plan to play a lot of online games, as by that point I will have (hopefully) mastered the art of manual goaltending and will (hopefully) not embarrass myself in round one by getting beaten by 30!

And yeah, it's about the price of a couple of pints in Manchester at the moment, so I cannot complain.  Although, post-Brexit, I will probably have to resort to foraging in the woods for food and drink!

Might be the hardest thing to master, right next to pass shots. Maybe in a few years if you play consistently. 

Much as I'd like to play, I tore my rotator cuff and it's really painful to do anything with my right hand.

Okay, "mastered" might be the wrong word, rather "try not to be a complete pixelated sieve"!

And the injury sounds grim.  Hope you manage to get some R&R soon.

You'll get to play at least 8 games, against various people. So I wouldn't worry about not being practiced up or losing in the first round. Only a few guys have a shot at winning the event, but we still get a few dozen players on each system, because it's fun either way.

As for the money, we don't actually keep it, it goes to prizes(trophies this year, which we'll need to ship)

Appreciate the offer bud but I’ll pass. Tournaments  I help organize, break even or incur a net loss from a budget perspective. And I’m happy to cover those “losses” from my own pocket because this a hobby for me. Organizing, playing and commentating is a ton of fun for this event.  
 

looking forward to having you online bud!
