Getting Started With HZ

Thanks for your interest in Hockey Zone!

Getting started requires just a couple, easy steps. You'll be playing spaceship hockey in no time!
You can skip many of these steps if you came here via STEAM!

  1. Download and Install Continuum (Click me!)
  2. Create Player Name
  3. Choose a zone
  4. Play!

Downloading and installing is as simple as that: just download and install!

Next step is to set up a player name. Click on 'Profile'.

'Profile Name' is just what that particular name is labelled on your machine.

'Player Name' is the name other users will see ingame.'Password' should be self explanatory.

The rest of the information under 'Profile' are just user-specific settings that you might want to play around with. Test out some resolutions, see what works best for you!

If you try to login with a user name that is already taken, you will receive a dialogue box that looks like this:

All this means is that, unfortunately, the user name you are trying to login with has already been claimed. You simply need to go back to 'Profile' and change your 'Player Name' to one that is not in use.

The final step is pick your zone! Simply click on 'SSCE Hockey/Football Zone' and then hit 'Play'.


You'll then connect to the zone, and your client will begin downloading necessary zone files (zone-specific sounds, graphics, settings)

Notice for 2015: SSCE Hockey/Football Zone is currently experiencing technical difficulties. As a result, you will get a warning when you try to connect to the zone saying it is not connected to the central user database. You can safely ignore this warning (we are in fact connected.)

Selecting Ships

Once you're ready to start playing, press Esc and a number. The number you press correlates to the ship.

  • Ship 1 - Warbird - "Scorebird," The quick and agile forward
  • Ship 2 - Javelin - Toughness, can take a couple hits before dying, good starter ship
  • Ship 3 - Spider - The playmaker, very slippery, long puck time, great starter ship
  • Ship 4 - Leviathan - The big heavy defender, checks are powerful, ship is slow
  • Ship 5 - Terrier - All-around player, great in many applications, great starter ship
  • Ship 6 - Weasel - Sniper, finesse shooting, very quick shot, weak checks
Ships 7 and 8 are both goalies:

  • Ship 7 - Lancaster - Large prox radius, very slow movement speed. The proactive goalie.
  • Ship 8 - Shark - Smaller prox, but much quicker movement speed. The reactive goalie.
