    ECL 10 Neo: Season Preview

    Sign in to follow this  

    NHLGamers,

    We asked ten team captains or alternates to tell us about their roster and ambitions for this second iteration of ECL Neo. In order to guarantee maximum objectivity we specify that these ten teams were chosen randomly, even Cancun Pirates, it’s promised ;). In a Neo division of 84 teams spread across 9 groups, we wanted to give the word to the teams in order to present themselves. This very succinct presentation will be followed, in a few weeks, to a more in-depth approach once the first games have delivered their verdict.

    How did you compose your team?

    “We have known each other for a long time and have played a lot of games together - now we are here.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “Just play and don’t complain.”

    What is your main strength?

    “Our main strength is MO-DO - Gema Tanzen, it’s a song”

    What is your main weakness?

    “Our mental strength after losing a game.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “We want to proceed to the playoffs.”

    How did you compose your team?

    “After the GCL season, we had a little break. Some guys decided to join other teams, so we had to look for new members. At first, it wasn't easy but at least we can say that we found some great players with a good personality and who can play more positions. We first thought that we didn’t have enough defensemen, but managed to sort out the situation. Our goalie @Christoph Kugler decided to go to Puck Panthers, but luckily he returned to us before the season. We think that we can be competitive for the new season.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “We are Jokers, we want to have fun on the ice and to break some bones by laying heavy hits, LOL. Well seriously, attack wins games but defense wins championships, so we will stay good at D, take our chances on attack in different ways, not only with the same scheme. We are good for some strange and crazy action on the ice. We are not afraid to play against great opponents, because we want to develop our game, step by step. We just want fair games and to have fun.””

    What is your main strength?

    “Our team spirit, we will never give up even if there is a big difference on the scoreboard. We have some talented players who can make a difference, goalscorers, playmakers and some weapons on the ice. All of us have a good mentality, that can push the other player in case of a bad situation. We are so glad that Kuglach is back in the net, because he performed incredibly during the GCL season. One Joker for all, all for one Joker!”

    What is your main weakness?

    “If we get a powerplay situation, we are too hectic and we do not play enough to move the opponent in the slot to find the free spaces. On breakaways we look for nice goals too often. A simple goal is too easy for a Joker LOL. In some situations, we play too slow or have too much of a big space between the attacker and defender. But mistakes are a part of the game and we will fight us back. If we have a big lead, our concentration can be lost.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “First of all, we want to have a good start for the season, with great games and no troubles. Our goal is to qualify for the playoffs. We have a good team and we think we have a good chance to punch that ticket. We must fight/play as a team. Our second goal is staying tight on defense, which was our big problem in the past. Finally, we wish all teams good and fair games, but as Jokers we have always a trick in our pocket, LOL.”

     

    Canc%C3%B9n%20Pirates.png Cancun Pirates with @IsaaDePo

    How did you compose your team?

    “To be honest, it started as a joke because we were not supposed to join this ECL and finally with the quarantine, it became something serious. Our team is mainly composed of guys that played for Cancun Pirates during ECL 6 and we added some new faces, two of them will play their very first ECL.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “Tripping penalties and shooting straight on the opponents goalie, mainly. To be serious, we only focus on having fun together, between a bunch of good and long time friends.”

    What is your main strength?

    “Having a member of NHLGamer’s staff on our team… And also the great atmosphere that prevails in our group. We really don’t care about winning or losing, except @Steve Yzerman, our captain…”

    What is your main weakness?

    “We have so many weaknesses, if not we would play in Elite like our good friends GHETTO FIREBIRDS who were in the same group as us during ECL 6. Well, to be honest we can lose our concentration very fast and very often.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “Nothing but having fun, about the results and standings - we don’t care at all. And we will cheer for our buddies Hawks Olympique HC and Grenoble BDL Esport, the two other French teams in ECL 10.”

     

    Masiina%20500x500.png Masiina with @joujami

    How did you compose your team?

    “We are all friends IRL.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “We focus on icing a good defense and striking hard on offense.”

    What is your main strength?

    “Our defense, definitely.”

    What is your main weakness?

    “We need to be better at converting on our scoring opportunities.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “We want to qualify for the playoffs.”

     

    blackiceguards500x500.png Black Ice Guards with @miitu87

    How did you compose your team?

    “Voiko nää kysymykset saada suomeksi LOL”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “We try to make the guys better players for solo and team play, while having fun, keeping a good atmosphere and helping those of us who never played in the ECL.”

    What is your main strength?

    “Our team as group, mainly. I’m so proud of all the guys in my team.”

    What is your main fault?

    “Well, my weakness is that I have no idea of what I have to do as a team captain and to handle the whole tournament things, LOL.” (check out this post for advice!)

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “Making my team a friendly and lovely family, and if possible, join the playoffs.”

     

    no-logo.jpg Good Fellas with @Nemli-SVK

    How did you compose your team?

    “I had problems with my previous team so I decided to put some good guys together and I’m happy with this new team.”

    What is your game philosophy?                       

    “Be smarter than our opponent.”

    What is your main strength?

    “We always try our best to have fun together.”

    What is your main weakness?

    “Mainly letting out focus slip and also some bad days sometimes.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “We want to be smart and win against rival teams.”

     

    maximum500x500.png Maximum Effect with @feertiiga

    How did you compose your team?

    “I just decided to create a team and a lot of my friends wanted to join in.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “To just have fun while playing and keeping a good mood.”

    What is your main asset?

    “We have fun while playing and we also have fun while losing.”

    What is your main weakness?

    “We are not good at keeping a good overview of the game.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “We wan’t to be as high as possible in the standings.”

     

    bauerrangers500x500.png Bauer Rangers GmbH with @SirScheissa1ot

    How did you compose your team?

    “We wanted to rebuild something with some good friends.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “Stay strong at defense and work hard at the offense, LOL”

    What is your main strength?

    “As a new team, we had very successful times, we reached the playoffs in the ECL9 Neo and the GCL5 Div2. We‘re working hard, playing a lot together and trying to keep improving.”

    What is your main weakness?

    “When we are challenged like what happened for us in the GCL, we‘re sometimes playing low-skill hockey.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “Our ambitions should be to reach the maximum of ourselves. But the ECL can be very tricky because of the new teams joining. We are one of them, but we‘re thinking the playoffs can be possible.”

     

    fearlessknights500x500.png Fearless Knights with @CzE Toni & @Zimowski95

    How did you compose your team?

    “We have carefully considered and put our team together. So that our boys personalities mesh well in the locker room, but we also need to be a team where you can play at a very high level.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “Forcing our opponents on our playing style and then punishing their mistakes mercilessly.”

    What is your main strength?

    "Our team is extremely strong in character and fights to the end. Therefore, it is possible for us to overturn even a high goal differential."

    What is your main weakness?

    “Our main weakness is that we don't have one.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “Take it game by game and get into the playoffs. From the playoffs everything is possible.”

     

    nhl4you500x500.png NHL4You Gaming with @Hohner

    How did you compose your team?

    “When @Tornado.hr and me met one evening at the party to play we had the idea to build a team together. The name was also quickly found "NHL4you Gaming" NHL4you is our 1vs1 league and under their name we will start our journey. We asked some players from our old clubs as well as some friends and so we put our team together.”

    What is your game philosophy?

    “Never give up and keep on fighting.”

    What is your main strength?

    “Our main strength is that nobody knows us.”

    What is your main fault?

    “We are a new team and not yet so well established - it will take some time.”

    What are your ambitions for this season?

    “We want to reach the semi-finals of ECL Neo with this squad of experienced Lite and Pro players.”


    There you go! We wanted to give the reigns of this article to the captains themselves and hopefully you have now become a bit more acquainted with some of the teams that are battling through our Neo division this season. Remember guys, play hard - have fun!
