Since all of us who have been playing thought it would be a hot idea, I figure we might as well start some discussion on it. I remember Kapoutman saying that he could put up a page on Kapoutland or something for it, which would be hella cool.

Basically I'm not sure how it would work. We could just do it like a "play-offs" type thing, have best-of-7 series with people and all that. How the matches are determined, I have no idea (hence the thread for discussing possibilities).

So yes. Before everything, if you're interested, reply here so we'll have a good idea of how many people will actually be involved. I'd assume there'd be roughly 8-12 or so, maybe more, depending. So maybe we can get a lot of people, then somehow determine who the top 8 are, and go from there.

SO YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH, reply here if you're interested, and give some suggestions of how it should be run and whatnot.

I don't know if you'll be able to call a certain team. :mad: That would most likely be best, but we'll need to come to a compromise if two people want the same team. :o

If everyone's cool with playing one team all the way through, then Penguins 4 me :mad:

Mr. Monday Morning
03-14-2004, 09:34 PM
If you need someone to make up the numbers I could probably get hold of a copy :shifty: over Easter or something.

On a related note there should be a ZSNES tourny one of these days :mad:

Y2Ant
03-15-2004, 12:59 AM
It should be run by having everyone be destroyed by me, which will happen anyway.

I will also destroy MMM in ZSNES (again)

I call Tampa Bay BTW

DaveWadding
03-15-2004, 01:25 AM
I'll go DL it and try it out...

also, I call the Avs ;)

DaveWadding
03-15-2004, 03:17 AM
so the 219 MB version on Suprnova works good?

road doggy dogg
03-15-2004, 04:12 AM
Yeah Dave, that's the one I'm on. I think the other one that Ant has (like 600 mb or something) actually has sound. The one I have (219 mb) has the sound, but no music. Or commentary.

I could school you at MK64 or MK: DD!

However, I am pitiful at the SNES game.

However again, let's get back to the tournament please. :rant: Still would like some more input from people about what rules and shit they want. When I play with others, I usually play it on 10 minute periods with the difficult skill level. Actually, I'll screenshot my "game setup" screen and post how I usually have my options set up. People can then agree/disagree on those options, and we'll get some rules set up for every game and whatnottttt

I tried downloading this NHL thing from Soulseek to see what the fuss was about but the person I was downloading it off went offline :(

K for the rules that's nothing too much to discuss really. Is everybody cool with how that's set? Or do people want anything different?


http://home.cogeco.ca/~tirving10/rules2.jpg

Also, not really as important, but obviously the goalie/player boost should be at 0 apiece. I think having line changes on is better too (but certainly up to debate and for a vote amongst everyone), as it gives teams with a less-than-stellar top line a better chance to compete against say, Vancouver. Also, I think that the manual/auto shot aim should be personal preference, as it only really affects the players' ability, and not the game itself.

Also, Straka > Naslund

SO HIT ME UP WITH SOME THOUGHTS PEOPLE. Also, keep replying, to those who are interested and haven't said anything yet.

Hmm.... I just got it off Suprnova. :o



Oh yeah. I just realized, since it's a tournament and all, the OT thing definitely needs to change. Should we just do it traditional NHL playoff style? (continuous OT 5-on-5 until a goal) Or would everyone like something else?

Mike the Metal Ed
03-15-2004, 10:03 AM
If someone could explain Icing and Offside to me, then that'll be fine.

Penner
03-15-2004, 02:05 PM
i would like no ties in the overtime, continuous 5-on-5 would work well i presume

Penner
03-15-2004, 02:06 PM
icing - dumping the puck in from your side of the middle red line and it going all the way down to behind the net resulting in a defenseman from the opposing team touching it

offside - when one of your teammates without the puck goes into the opposing zone and you enter with the puck after them

Y2Ant
03-15-2004, 03:27 PM
If someone could explain Icing and Offside to me, then that'll be fine.
LOL yeah you go offside all the time :love:

The guy with the puck has to be the first to cross the opponent's blueline, if one of your other guys has crossed it beforehand (and is still past it) and you go past it, it is offside.

Like in 2v2, when me and Toni rush down the ice, and he has the puck say, I have to slow down when I get to the blueline so he crosses first, then I follow him in.

It flashes up under the score when you are offside too :y:

Y2Ant
03-15-2004, 03:29 PM
Oh and those settings are all good, if we are going best of 7 games, then Continuous OT is the way to go :mad:

It's just how are we gonna draw the teams I guess :-/

Oh and you seem to have accidentally put seksi and jobber the wrong way round :naughty:

Mr. Monday Morning
03-15-2004, 05:34 PM
The guy with the puck has to be the first to cross the opponent's blueline, if one of your other guys has crossed it beforehand (and is still past it) and you go past it, it is offside.

If you pass it forward that's ok though right?

MoRcHeEbA
03-15-2004, 05:36 PM
If you pass it forward that's ok though right?


aslong as the puck goes across first

Y2Ant
03-15-2004, 06:50 PM
If you pass it forward that's ok though right?
No, that would be offside

In this case, think of the blueline as the defence in football, passing it to a player who has crossed all the defence/blueline is offside :o

Oh yeah and you;ve got the 2 line pass too, but i'm not sure which lines it applies to, all of them i think, so passing it over 2 lines = whistle too

03-15-2004, 07:01 PM
*growl* the 219 MB version doesnt seem to be working...
I'll run a reinstall later.

Growling at it won't solve the problem Dave. Actually maybe you're not growling at it enough.

03-15-2004, 07:16 PM
So are we playing 7 game series? I'm fine with that but it might be a little to much. I mean TPWW does have a bad record when keeping up with tournaments.

03-15-2004, 07:51 PM
Hmmmm Mitch has a good point. Maybe make it best 2 out of 3? Or 3 out of 5?

MoRcHeEbA
03-15-2004, 07:54 PM
yeah, I was gonna suggest the first round be best of 5 then switch to 7 games in the semis and finals.

MoRcHeEbA
03-15-2004, 07:55 PM
also one of you nobs, lets have a game

Y2Ant
03-15-2004, 08:00 PM
if we can get 8, make it best of 3 then 5 then 7?

but what if we have 16 :'(

perhaps just single KO games for a qualifying round :o?

Y2Ant
03-15-2004, 08:01 PM

MoRcHeEbA
03-16-2004, 03:37 PM
just a suggestion but if we actually have this many people perhaps we should have like an A side and a B side tourny... like just one random game against another person in the tourny... the Winner goes to A side loser goes to B side


then the winner of the A side plays the winner of the B side in the finals.

DaveWadding
03-16-2004, 03:40 PM

cut off to sign up is 10 my time that's central time... SIX HOURS FROM RIGHT NOW.

the way it's gonna work is just like I was saying with the A-side and B-side what's going to happen is im gonna randomly pick games to decide the A-side and B-side.. winners of there first games go to a-side losers go to B-side... the finals will be the tops teams from each side. the third place game will be between Number 2 on the a-side and number 2 on the B-side... any questions let me know.

Yeah Anaheim aren't really that good, they are an underdog team that kick ass btw :o

Although their goalie Giguere is the man, as is their main center Mr. Federov :love:

I'd say the best teams are Detroit, Colorado, Vancouver, Dallas, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, St. Louis, Ottawa

Then you have Boston and Toronto who are statistically good, but ghey in real life :shifty:
