    Hey NHLGamers!

    The sun is coming up and the Summer Cup 4 is about to start soon. Here is our service announcement that provides all the necessary details for all captains and regular players to be ready for today's Live Draft and the league start.

     

    THE DRAFT

    The Live Draft will take place today, Sunday 4th of August, on NHLGamer Twitch at 17 CEST / 18 EEST and we will be streaming for approximately ~6 hours in an effort to draft all of the ~400 players, meaning the draft procedure will be finished by 00 CEST / 01 CEST. This will require all of the captains to make their selection in 30-60 seconds per turn.

    @Kenu and @Janikka will be functioning as our hosts during that time. We will also have a few topics to discuss, and are happy to answer any questions that come up in the chat!

    To all captains: We have sent out a private message to all of you, asking to confirm your presence for today's draft. It is crucial all of you are able to attend - otherwise we need to find backup captains on short notice! You have also been sent a message with more information about the player list and options to get connected.

    The draft order will be decided in a draft lottery, which we will broadcast very shortly, so get ready for a marathon stream! The draft will be a so-called 'snake draft', meaning that if you get the first pick in round 1, you will have the last pick in round 2. If you had the last pick in round 1, you'll have the first pick in round 2 - and so on.

    In addition to this, based on your feedback we've decided to run the draft with option number 1 from the SC announcement last week: Every team should have 1 Elite, 1 Pro and 1 Lite player in their roster after the first two rounds. For example: If you as a captain played in the Elite division in ECL 8, you have to pick one Pro and one Lite player in the first two rounds. If you as a a captain played in the Pro division in ECL 8, you have to pick one Elite and one Lite player in the first two rounds. If you as a captain played in the Lite division in ECL 8, you have to pick one Elite and one Pro player in the first two rounds. If you are a rookie and didn't play ECL before, you get recognized as a Lite player and have to pick one Elite and one Pro player in the first two rounds. After these first two rounds however your picks are unrestricted.

    We do kindly ask all players and captains to be aware of the picks of the other captains because our code will not cover this rule, so we have to manually catch those eventual mistakes.

     

    USEFUL LINKS FOR FOLLOWING THE DRAFT

    We will do our best to entertain you and keep you up to date on our stream. However, if you're a captain, or simply enjoy browsing through lists, you might find these useful.

    Static means that the information will not be updating, while dynamic means that these pages will update (requires a browser refresh) according to what happens in the draft

     

    DO YOU WISH TO BE A CAPTAIN?

    As always, if you're in anyway interested in being a captain but haven't been able to update your sign-up sheet to show this, then please send a message to @jahajaha93 and / or @MartindalexC as soon as possible. The more captains the better as it allows us to make sure that we hit our targets and thusly can provide you, the player, with the best Summer Cup experience possible! 

     

    THE RULES

    The ruleset for this year's Summer Cup is currently being tweaked, however we will try to make it available to all players as soon as possible, so please stay tuned. 

     

    LEAGUE FORMAT

    As we get a better picture on how many captains there are (and thusly the amount of teams) we will update this. Generally speaking however, we are looking to have 4 groups, with 8/9 teams in each. Additionally, we are aiming to have the regular season run for around 3 weeks, giving us this timeline: 

    • Regular season: 5.8.-25.8.
    • Playoffs round 1: 26.8.-28.8.
    • Quarter Finals: 29.8.-1.9.
    • Semi Finals: 2.-4.9.
    • Finals: 5.-7.9.

     

    As you may have noticed, the schedule for the SC this time around is quite intensive. All this means is that it is especially important that captains draft players who are available more often than not. 

    That's all you need to know for now. Make sure to tune in for today's Live Draft!

    Hmmmm... where does it say so? In  quote from this news story it looks like regular season + 4 rounds (including finals).

    • Regular season: 5.8.-25.8.
    • Playoffs round 1: 26.8.-28.8.
    • Quarter Finals: 29.8.-1.9.
    • Semi Finals: 2.9.-4.9.
    • Finals: 5.9.-9.7.

    16 teams go to playoffs:

    TOP 5 in each group + the best PPG takes the last spot.

    Within the groups, the seeding works as follows:

    • PPG average during the regular season
    • Wins
    • Head to Head record
    • Goal Difference
    • Goals scored

    As per our discussion during the FCL, we have decided to honor the following tie-breakers to form the playoff pairs:

    • Group Placement
    • PPG Average
    • Goal Difference
    • Goals Scored

    In other words:

    • Group winners are seeded #1-3
    • Group runner-ups #4-6
    • 3rd place #7-9
    • 4th place #10-12
    • 5th place #13-15
    • The team with the best PPG outside of the top 5 group spots will be seeded #16 (if there are only two teams from the same group fighting for this spot, the group tie-breakers will be used)

    Really hope finals don't end next years July🌚

    This started as a joke but it's funny that the typo is still not fixed :D

    Would be nice to know if finals end 9.9 or 7.9 (9.7 in the post atm)

    Ahh oops! I thought the joke was that the draft stream was going to go on until next year. :D

    7th of September, because we believe the early access of NHL 20 will kick off around the 8th (5 days early).
