Xbox EHL Spring 2015 Announcement & Registration

Hey everyone, as some may know already we're trying to get going an EHL that will hopefully start sometime between now and spring (We could set it going earlier if we get the required amount of teams quickly).

Currently we're aiming for atleast 8 teams, but if we get an influx of teams we could easily push back the start date for more people to join. Afterall, having more teams than 8 will be ideal

Anyway, without further a do! Let's get to the action…

How to register:

  • 1. Team name
  • 2. Link to your team's blog on Consolehockey.com

I believe that the EA sports world was taken down for NHL 15 onwards so linking your team from there is no longer required.

Obviously the absolute minimum of players is 6, ideally though I'd advise having atleast 8 players on your roster.

As a rough guide each team will play 3 'game days' per week, with 2 games taking place each day however you have some lee-way as long as your games are completely finished at the end of the season.

All team GMs must (If possible) submit an alternate communication source outside of Consolehockey so I can contact them if I need to, skype is a good option as we can create a group chat so it's easy for everyone to contact eachother.

My skype is: martindalexc

As it stands we don't have a schedule in place at the moment, as we get more teams we can start thinking about a possible start and finish date.

Finally I will put forth some simple etiquette rules that I would like people to follow:
  • Be understanding of your opponent, if you are in CET and your opponent is in the East of Russia, don't be an ass and give them awkward times
  • Please don't change your team's name any time in the season, otherwise it will become a mess trying to re-organise everything
  • Above all else, please respect your opponent… afterall we all have willingly joined this tournament so please try to make it as good a time for everyone
  • It is quite likely I will gloss over something that you may feel important so if you don't agree with anything or feel you'd like to add something, please let me know and we'll work

How will the games be played if we get 8 teams?
First everyone plays against everyone in the regular season, then the team that has the most points will play against the team with the least points, and 2nd will play againts 7th etc etc, u gt the drill.
2 games, home and away, if they end up 1-1 then the team that scored the most goals will continue.
That leaves 4 teams.

Or something different, if yes then do tell.


sambula
Or bigger regular league (many games between one team 2-6 times) and then playoff?
MartindalexC
We will have to work it out once we get 8 teams and decide whether it's best to wait for some more people or best to start.

If we were to simply start once we hit 8 teams, we could make it so there's two game days against the same team, meaning you would play each team 4 times over the course of a season.

How we decide how many teams reach the playoffs will depend on how we want to structure it. Having 4 teams in a round robin format similar to the way the Memorial cup is decided for the CHL could be interesting.

Simply put, the top 4 teams of the league play one game against eachother. The team with the best record out of all the teams advances straight to the finals, whereas the two teams that finished 2nd and 3rd go on to play a semi-final game and the team with the worst record is eliminated.
russianstars
I think we wait for some more teams
bjono
russianstars, join
MartindalexC
russianstars, It's not that simple unfortunately. If we wait one month for an extra 6 teams or something… I personally won't be inclined to wait another month for 'potentially' another few teams.
Kauppila93
wait more teams!
sambula
I think more team is goming if we wait  can we get more teams more if you put all the messages to other teams and their friends

sambula
try to share this tournament all!
MartindalexC
So officially we have 6 teams that will be able to play with hopefully one or two more coming relatively soon. So we've reached our minimum goal in regards to that.

So how long does everyone think we should wait in the hope that more teams sign up?

MartindalexC, The tournament has to start no later than the first week of March imo, and I would hesitate to start it before the last week of February. I'd give teams until maybe wednesday of the week before the beginning of the tournament top register, in order to have time to make the schedule and whatever else a tourney amdin has to do. Just my 2 cents.

Now we have eight teams. I know that at least one team would like to come along, So now to start the tournament? or wait two teams more? or maybe four teams more?
Salonjumala
We are trying to participate to EHL, but
— where do I can create our team
— where do I create the blog for our team

Sorry for the noob questions…
patovic
Salonjumala,
In the list up to the right under «events» and create team.
Blog should probaly be easy to find how to create after the team is created
Pigeonfield
I, like Billy, feel like we should start the tournament fairly soon. I wouldn't mind a couple more teams to get to 10 or 12 teams but atleast now it seems we have 8 — that's enough as a bare minimum.

Good on martindale for stepping up btw, cheers!
Let's send this current gen of consoles off with a good, clean tournament without drama or scheduling issues
Salonjumala
patovic, we created the team and now it's waiting confirmation from admin.
bjono
Salonjumala, just wait for admin ta accept it

With 10 teams signed up I think it's time to add a deadline so we can get this tournament moving.

The deadline will be Wednesday the 18th of February, any teams that submit their application to join after this date will not be allowed into the league.

As for the starting date, we have two options. Either we wait until Monday the 23rd before any games are played, or we move the start date forward to the weekend starting from Saturday the 21st.

Once the deadline has passed, the schedule will be finalised… along with the play-off structure that we will be using.

Good luck to everyone!

This might be a stupid question. But are you playing on NHL 14 or 15?
sambula
Nhl 15
MartindalexC
raixor1, NHL 15
Pigeonfield
Hey, sorry for the late notice but Club HC sadly won't be able to participate this time. Lack of interest from team members and just not enough players in general sadly…
MartindalexC
Pigeonfield, No problem, thanks for letting us know as soon as you could
