    Update #1 - Feb. 19, 00:15 CET

    Unfortunately, Nordic Eagles aren't able to participate in ECL 6 anymore. Due to this, League Administration decided to move Kaksikymmentaseitseman from ECL Lite Group 2 to Group 4. Captains were informed via PM. We apologize if this causes any inconvenience.

    _____

    Hey NHL Gamers,

    it's time for the 6th edition of ECL, again by far the most influental 6vs6 experience in at least all over Europe. This time we finally crossed that 100 teams barrier, and end up with a total of 110! That's up 11% from ECL 5's 96 participants. And quite frankly, there does not seem to be any sign of slowing down.

    ECL Lite and ECL Pro will start playing tomorrow, February 19, while ECL Elite will start on Wednesday, February 21. The schedules will be released shortly on the main page, so keep an eye out for that to see which team you will be facing first!

    Without further ado, here's everything you need to know.

    ECL 6 Rules

    The rules for ECL 6 can be seen here:

    As plenty of details have changed, we suggest you give them a good read before season start!

     

    League Administration

    All league related decisions will be made by League Administration. To open up a case, create a new question in the "Contact League Administration" helpdesk.

    Please note: Teams are expected to solve issues on their own before contacting League Administration - the rules include lots of guidance for different issues. League Administration is always the last resort to solve any disagreements.

    ECL 6 Elite

    14 teams confirmed their participation for ECL 5:

    • Carlsberg HC
    • Dynasty
    • Evolution
    • Falun Coal Miners
    • Kattiautomaatti
    • Northern Ascendancy
    • Northern Stars
    • Pata Hellalla
    • Rusty Blades
    • SJK eSports
    • Silver Sword Griffins
    • Sjukstugan
    • Unlucky Boys HC
    • Written In The Stars

    To fill the two open spots that are caused by the disbandment of both MUKIMIEHET and Aapon Taikasauva, rule 4.3 from the ECL 6 rules gets applied. Four ECL 5 Pro quarter-finalists come into question:

    • THE UNITED KNIGHTS (0 PO wins)
    • Nordic Stars (3 PO wins)
    • Gotham Knights (3 PO wins)
    • Inter Iceland (2 PO wins)

    Based on these numbers, League Administration offers the remaining two ECL 6 Elite spots to Nordic Stars and Gotham Knights:

    ECL 6 Pro

    23 teams (excluding Nordic Stars and Gotham Knights, which were moved to ECL Elite) confirmed their participation for ECL 6:

    • Alliance HT
    • Almost Famous
    • Baltic Sea Eagles
    • Banterfield Battalion
    • Bellizzi
    • Clowns on Ice
    • EN HUND
    • Free From Rodents
    • Inter Iceland
    • JPTJ
    • Monarchs
    • Murohoki
    • Nordic Nosebleed
    • OG Royals
    • Raging Monkeys
    • Red Machine
    • SIKA
    • Shameful Knights
    • Speedy Bros Hockey
    • Synergy Hockey
    • Sypperstaars
    • TIKI TALK
    • White Trash

    This means a total of 9 spots had to be filled with ECL Lite sign-ups. As ECL 5 Lite quarter-finalists that also signed up and applied for ECL Pro, Deadly Phantoms HC were prioritized and moved to ECL 6 Pro.

    For the 8 remaining spots, we were looking at ECL Pro applications from these 16 teams:

    • Arctic
    • Asserklubi
    • Breakers Of The Bone
    • EaLogic
    • FILADELPHIA
    • ICEBREAKERS EAGLES
    • Ice Phoenix
    • Kaukosen Luistin
    • Monte Carlo
    • MotherPuckers
    • Old Farts
    • Penalty Box
    • Pohjoista Voimaa
    • Quality
    • Suomen Sonnit
    • The Beagle Boys

    According to rule 4.2 in the ECL 6 rules, League Administration not only looked at in-game leaderboards and records, but also considered EASHL history as well as notable achievements, recent games and ECL experience (games played, points, wins etc.). At the end of our evaluation, these 8 teams were considered suitable and are moved to ECL 6 Pro:

    • Arctic
    • Breakers Of The Bone
    • FILADELPHIA
    • Monte Carlo
    • Old Farts
    • Penalty Box
    • Quality
    • The Beagle Boys

     

    ECL 6 Pro - Final conferences

    ECL Pro will be played in 2 conferences with 16 teams each. With 2 games against each opponent, this results in a 30 game regular season in which the top 8 teams out of each group will go to the playoffs (16 teams total).

    To determine the final groups, all teams were seeded into 4 different pots. From there, the teams were randomized into two conferences:

    ECL 6 Lite

    The remaining 62 teams will be participating in ECL 6 Lite. For obvious reasons, I'm saving the entire list at this point and we'll go straight to the conferences.

     

    ECL 6 Lite - Final conferences

    ECL Lite will be played in 6 conferences with 10/11 teams each. With 2 games against each opponent, this results in an 18/20 game regular season in which the top 5 teams out of each conference, as well as the two best 6th ranked teams out of all conferences will go to the playoffs (32 teams total).

    To determine the final conferences, all teams were randomly assigned to the six conferences:

    Team management tools

    All teams have been created, and the captains mentioned in the sign-up posts will shortly be unlocked for the team management tools on the main page (click on your username in the top right corner to access them). All players need to be invited to the team rosters ahead of your first game. Please note that all invited players need to accept the invitation (there will be a popup alert on the main page for them) before they show up on the team roster and can start playing!

     

    In case you have any questions, please use the comment section below this news story. Good luck to all teams and have fun!

    Can't register fabgo32 for EV Duisburg in ECL Lite, because his Playercard is empty after he logged himself in with this Nickname.

     

    Can't fullfill his playercard because the error message "PSN Id is already taken" came up.

    Our team name is Taidottomat Lupaukset, not toivottomat

    I have no idea where this mistake came from, but it's fixed now. On the actual league pages at least, not the graphics in the news story. Sorry there!

    Question. 

    If we get the schedule today and both teams can play tonight, are we allowed to do so?

    Please take a look at the rules. It's explained in the scheduling section.
