This tourney will be a 1v1 epic season with each team playing a full 82-game schedule before a best-of-7 series Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Stanley Cup!
EVERY PLAYER MUST SELECT ONE OF THE 30 NHL CLUBS AND A HOME RINK (MAP).
*doodle earth cannot be used as it is a tiebreaker map
Structure: Regular Season: Each team will play 82 games total. Each team will be assigned games on a weekly basis so on average that's about 3-4 games at a time. Teams will play one 1v1 game against each other. The round will advance once each team has played each assigned game. Playoffs: Just as the actual NHL, according to the points system the top 3 teams in each division and two conference wild cards will make the Stanley Cup playoffs, making 16 teams total. Each team is seeded by conference 1-8 and highest seed will always play lowest seed. Each round will be a best-of-7 series but will be fragmented into stages. Stages 2-4 will only be played if necessary.
Stage 1: 4 games, 2 at each team's home rink. Stage 2: 1 game at higher seeded team's home. Stage 3: 1 game at lower seeded team's home. Stage 4: repeat Stage 2.
Points System and Tiebreakers: 1) Each win is 2 points, an overtime loss is 1 point. 2) Overtime comes into play after the 10th round. 3) There is no overtime in the playoffs. 4) No ties. Ever.
Tiebreakers work much like the NHL system: 1) # wins not in OT 2) Head to head record (most points advances) 3) A three-game no ot doodle earth series, first to win 2 advances
Brendan Shanahan's Disciplinary Measures: -If a player misses the invites to all games for a round (without prior notice and/or legitimate reason i.e. death, medical procedure, illness, vacationing in an internet dead zone), he/she receives a season-long suspension that cannot be appealed and will be replaced by a reserve to play from that round on. -If a player misses an invite to a playoff game, he/she will be re-invited to a new one as a sort of second chance. If still no response, that player automatically loses the series.
Game Settings: -standard -automatic -sequential -chained -flat rate -no fog or trench -24 hr rounds
Elastic Clause: Commissioner Gary "Douchebag" Bettman (myers33) has the final say on all issues and has the right to adjust any rule at any time if deemed necessary.
