    Spring League - All you need to know

    Sign in to follow this  

    Hi NHLGamers,

    it's time for our very first Spring League! A total of 82 teams registered for this non-divisional tournament which will feature some of the very best ECL teams alongside some newcomers. Without further ado we would like to give you a short briefing of the important details of this tournament:

    The Spring League season kicks off tomorrow on Monday 6th of May, however we would like captains to attempt respecting the suggested gamedays as follows: Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.




    There are currently no special rules for the Spring League, but we would like to refer to the known ECL rulebook - the rules will be most likely to display the rules which are set for the Pro division. We will update the rulebook and release it as soon as possible.


    League Administration

    All league related verdicts will be decided by the League Administration. To open up a case, visit the new Support section on the forums.

    Please note: before contacting League Administration, teams are expected to solve issues they might have on their own. Familiarize yourself with our rules first, as they include lots of guidance for different issues. League Administration is always to be used as the last resort to solve any disagreements.

    The eight best teams out of each group will be making the playoffs. This totals up to 48 teams. 16 teams will have a bye week for the first round, these 16 include the top two teams out of each group and the four next best teams determined by PPG. Alike the playoffs in ECL 8 Lite, the remaining 32 teams will then be seeded according to PPG and matched up against each other based on that. A new seeding will be done after the first round. The playoffs will be played in a best-of-5 format throughout.



    Although we have a set schedule with gamedays that should be respected, please ALWAYS contact your opponents ahead of a scheduled game. This way several misunderstandings can be avoided and eventual rescheduling can be agreed upon. We recommend contacting your opponents both on PSN and NHLGamer.
