    NHLGamers,

    Here are the playoff pairings and framework for Round 2 of the ECL 5 playoffs for Pro & Elite:

     

    FRAMEWORK

    • Each pairing, Elite or Pro, must be finished within 7 days from today, meaning last evening to play games is December 5th. Don't expect any extensions!
    • All pairings are to be played in a best-of-7 series (teams on the left side below play home first)

     

    PRO PLAYOFFS

    After the cross-seeding of the first round between Group 1 and Group 2, we now return to our usual points per game seeding for the rest of the playoffs. Here is how last round ended:

    • Gotham Knights vs. J P T J [2-1, final two games WO from J P T J due to no players available in the alloted time]
    • SIKA vs. THE UNITED KNIGHTS [3-4]
    • Inter Iceland vs. EN HUND [4-2]
    • Lavetten vs. Pata Hellalla [2-4]
    • Unlucky Boys HC vs. Alliance HT [4-2]
    • Shameful Knights vs. Falun Coal Miners [1-4]
    • Nordic Stars vs. White Trash [4-2]
    • Baltic Sea Eagles vs. Evolution [3-4]

    This gives us the following pairings for Round 2 (new seeds based on points per game relative to each other in regular season):

    • #1 Unlucky Boys HC vs. #8 THE UNITED KNIGHTS
    • #2 Nordic Stars vs. #7 Falun Coal Miners
    • #3 Gotham Knights vs. #6 Pata Hellalla
    • #4 Inter Iceland vs. #5 Evolution

     

    ELITE PLAYOFFS

    For Elite, these were the results of Round 1. 

    • Aapon Taikasauva vs. Rusty Blades [4-2]
    • Carlsberg HC vs. Northern Stars [3-4]
    • SJK eSports vs. Northern Ascendancy [4-2]
    • Written In The Stars vs. Dynasty [4-0]

    This gives us the following pairings for Round 2 (seeds remain unchanged = sorted by points per game in regular season):

    • #1 Aapon Taikasauva vs. #7 Northern Stars
    • #3 SJK eSports vs. #4 Written In The Stars

     

    Good luck to all teams and see you for Round 3! ECL Lite announcement regarding Round 3 will be out tomorrow.

    But still, it's bullshit. ''Yeee leggo and let's play good regular season so after that we can gain WO losses at first round of PlayOffs.'' Thing what should been never happen. And in my mind, if that happen, It only tells about stupid rules. Staff can always keep crying about how you can have so many backups in roster, bc we got that cute 8 players minimum rule. Fuck that. There is teams who wanna play with one lineup to get best possible result. Respect that first!!! And I don't mean scheduling should be some kinda kinder garden to teams but you got the point I hope.

    Maybe staff can think what they can do better with rules and scheduling in future. That 'wannabe strict' what I have seen so far is kinda hilarious sometimes.

    I have experience how LA guys can be disrespectful against team Captains so I have full rights here to say directly what I think. And no... I don't need any staff member to answer this. I have other things to do. I just wanted to say. I respect all work you do, but theres a things what I can't really understand. Maybe someday. :)

    Sry & thx, remember to enjoy this awesome PlayOff time!

    In the playoffs I also fully understand & respect that teams want to use a specific lineup. Stupid otherwise.

    My point is the regular season deadline when you have 1-2 month and still "need" the extra days when its only benefits the teams that don't care about/hold the deadline.

    In the playoff I cant say anything because I'm to bad to be a part of it.. But I hear and can agree that its sad it has to be WO´s

    We understand that everyone wants to play with their best lineup. Tho it's not always possible and you have to work around it. The deadlines for each round are there for a reason -  everyone has to follow the same set of rules and the same deadlines. There's no preferential treatment.

    OK, lets say we indefinitely extend the current round of the playoffs because of a single matchup where both teams couldn't ice their best lineups. Now what? Everyone's forced to wait? What will we do when another team approaches us regarding the same issue? What happens when in the following rounds teams actually can't play their games because of the previous delays (holidays are right around the corner)? What happens when we are forced to push back/cancel the next ECL/Summer Cup? 

    We're open to all suggestions and will always try our hardest to help teams to overcome any potential issues.

    There are valid reasons for not being able to finish the series and if such cases arise we can possibly try to squeeze in an extension. That said, demanding an extension simply because one of your main players decides to go on a vacation and then the team doesn't want to play the series even though they have enough capable players is just ridiculous.

    Please respect other members of this community and their time.

    Ok, sry for myself. I need to catch this. With that bolded line, why? Cama. Are U tryin' to BABYSIT me here? I'm really sure U know what I'm talkin' bout. xoxo ^_^ If you don't keep private things out of here, me either. Customer service as it best. No hard feelings, just giving a feedback in my way. But I'm not sure are you best person to say "respect others".

    It's fun how the whole LA keeps saying same things over and over again. Jaadajaada... My point here wasn't that I wanna teams get forced to wait others or something else. Just saying, think before you even start! That was the point. Staff forcing and waiting all teams to play whole season within 8 weeks without any WO's is also as ridiculous as (for example:) me asking two weeks more time bc Ulla went to Hawaiji with him Tinder match. Blaablaa...

    Ok, I understand, giving 8 or 10 weeks for Regular Season would not change anything. Theres always that one "SSG" at the end, asking more time to play. 1 or 1,5 week for three opponents is pretty good, imo. But for future, I wanna see at least longer PlayOff deadlines. Or at least more freedom with them. I mean, think before you start, as I said. If Christmas comes to your way, then it comes. Don't force PlayOffs in future. We can continue playing on January as we (you) did @ ECL 3. Why we even wait one month after game release to start ECL? Now we need to hurry with everything. Rules @ ECL 5 are already written. I can stick with those, I respect them as much as I can. But I'm talking about future (ECL 6 etc.). I don't wanna see any WO's, I wanna see more competitive and friendly rules for top teams. Imo, if we (you) are smarter, we can play Seasons without killing tight deadlines. Just be straight and simple with those rules what comes about games deadlines in future. And do it before you start season, not when season is going to end. The fear about WO's is always here when you play or not. It's not good. Plan your seasons with more time, so at least those PlayOff WO's are gone forever.

    I respect you and other members. Different opinions are richness. But I think, nobody doesn't care how many seasons we play in a year. Me and other members will enjoy much more to play 1-2 ECL Seasons which are almost 100% succesful with good straight rules, than playing 3-4 ECL Seasons which are 75% succesful bc there isn't really change to be flexible. There's always a problems and there's always different kind of teams. Others maybe doesn't care about WO's, but I care.

    And don't get me wrong. The problem isn't as big as my text is. :D It's interesting to discuss and this is what I think. Perfectly planned is half done...

    Cant be that hard;

    Regular season: 1-2 month to play the games 

    Playoff: 1 week

    Imo you would need a really good reason to extend even playoff. And also in playoff it doesnt affect other teams in same way

    Let me see if you doesn't see they are totally different world to shedule games. In regular season you are dealing with many teams per week etc and it's also much larger package. 1 or 1,5 week deadline in regular season is good so you kinda stay in touch. In playoffs, you have only that one opponent where to put focus. So it would be much more competitive to give more time for the series, so you can 100% sure play with your best possible lineup there. Or even play. In regular season its not so necessary as U know. It's not world end if you need to use potato as goalie in one regular season night. But what about playoffs? I think its kinda world end. :D

    But yeah, my writings was kinda made for teams, who wanna play as comptetitive as possible. So pls, don't fuck dots. I know you are wise man. Read with mind. :)

    Yes i understand, for example i will be in usa for 2.5 weeks in march, i was quite sure it didnt hit poff time but it might, but considering that my team (if i find one and is going to poffs) should be given 3 weeks to schedule, if you want to play competitive imo week is enough for 1 series as it mostly has been.

    As far as I know, the “asking” bit is not really the truth. We always aim to finish within the allowed time frame. Never has anyone from SSG personally asked anyone for "more time". If they (LA) say you can still play 7 days after last game day or 0, we take it into consideration when scheduling last few weeks. Please refer to facts you only know about.

    Yeye, three weeks are too much. I go simple here now... I'm pretty sure most of series can be played now and in the future with only one week. But IF something happens, there should be so well planned season with room at the end and that kinda rules, so in playoffs staff can be more flexible and give 0,5 or 1 week more time just bc of one or two key players can't play. It's not too much, imo. I love competitive NHL and I wanna play with our best players against opponents best players. If you keep playing and practice like months and months with your best weapons. Much more than others. You don't wanna go war without them. It feels so stupid, why we even played so much, why we even practice? I know pretty good how fucking heavy thing that can be. But as I said earlier, there is many kind of teams and players. It's hard to understand me, if you haven't feel the same as me...
