TQO’s NHL 2012-2013 (Lockout Edition): 1 v 1
This is a 30 player tournament modeled exactly on the (2012)-2013 NHL schedule. As you may know, a lockout cancelled the first half of the season from October to January, leaving teams with a 48 game regular season.
By entering this tournament, you are committing to playing 48 regular season 1 v 1 games against the other teams. At the conclusion of 48 games, the top 8 teams in the Eastern Conference and the top 8 teams in the Western Conference will make the playoffs. Each playoff round will be “best 4 of 7”. After 4 playoff rounds, we will have a champion.
Each player shall choose their NHL team and “home ice” settings. All games will be 1 v 1, automatic deploy, sunny, no trench, sequential, with a 20 round limit. But for your home map, you will choose:
Map (no player may choose Hive)
In the regular season, each team will have 24 home games and 24 road games. Games will be sent out in 4 “batches” corresponding to the calendar months of January, February, March and April, and based on the actual NHL schedule. Because you are playing multiple games at once, this tournament is limited to premium players only.
The top eight teams in each conference qualify for the playoffs. The division winners in each conference are seeded 1, 2 and 3 based on point totals, and the remaining 5 teams are seeded from 4-8 based on point totals. In the event of a tie, the tiebreakers are: (1) most wins excluding games won due to round limit; (2) greater number of points earned against the club(s) you are tied with; (3) quickest victory in a game against the club(s) you are tied with; (4) tiebreaker game on Doodle Earth, automatic, sequential, escalating, chained, sunny, no trench, and no round limit.
In the playoffs, the higher-seed team will receive 4 home games, and the lower seeded team receives 3 home games during each playoff round. In each playoff round, the top seed plays the lowest seed; the 2nd best seed plays the 2nd worst seed, and so on. The first team to win 4 games advances to the next round.
In the regular season, a win is worth 2 points. A team that loses before the round limit is reached receives 0 points. A team that loses due to round limits receives 1 point.
In the playoffs, if your team does not win in “regulation time” (20 turns), the result does not count. If no team has reached 4 wins in any playoff series because of games that were not won in “regulation time”, each game that did not count will go into “overtime”. Each overtime game will be a separate game on the Hive map, automatic, sequential, escalating, chained, sunny, no trench, and no round limit.
