    The EASHL has grown stale ever since EA Sports discontinued EASHL Year End Playoffs after NHL 10. Well, this is the year we bring it back. With help from LeagueGaming.com and @Savvy x91 aka Marc Savard, there will once again be a year end playoff.

    These playoffs will be based on the leaderboards. At the end of April 2017, the top 12 teams from the Overall 6 player ranking leaderboards will be invited to participate in a 6's Year End Club Playoff Invitational. The winning teams top 6, as chosen by winning teams owner or GM, will recieve a digital deluxe edition of NHL 18 courtesy of Marc Savard and EA Sports.

    If one or more of the 12 teams decline the invite or fail to field a roster of at least six, we will invite the next ranked eligible team and so on and so forth. Unlike previous years where EA hosted the year end tournament there are no North American geographical restrictions or age restrictions.

    Once the regular season ends, April 30 11:59PM est, the 12 teams will have until May 6 11:59PM est to submit their official roster for the invitational. If any of the 12 teams fails to submit their roster before the deadline their slot will go to the next team in line and that team will have 48 hrs to submit their roster. There is a max roster limit of 9, however, a player can only play for one team. If any player is found to be playing for more than one team using a second tag both teams will be disqualified from the playoffs and will forefeit their series.

    The playoff bracket and teams rosters will be featured on LG. Each series will be a best of three until the finals which will be a best of 5. Due to the instability of the servers all the games will be done through regular club search which has suprisingly good connection. This has been tested and usually doesn't take more than three searches to matchup with the old 1...2...3...search method.

    Rules regarding lagouts is still being discussed and everyone will be informed on those procedures prior to the start of the playoffs.

    The top 4 seeds for the 6s leaderboards will recieve a first round bye and the matchups for the first round will be 5 vs 12, 6 vs 11, 7 vs 10, and 8 vs 9. After the first round finishes the highest seed will face the lowest seed and so on. Teams will agree upon a date and time to play their series during the playoff round's window. This will be done by posting in the scheduling thread on the LG forums. If the two teams cannot agree on a date and time in the playoff window a date and time will be assigned to them. To ensure completion during the playoff windows there will be no rescheduling of playoff series.

    The dates for everything are as followed:

    April 30 11:59PM est: Regular Season Ends
    May 6 11:59PM est: Roster submissions Due
    May 13-17: First round of playoffs
    May 20-24: Second round of playoffs
    May 27-31: Third round of playoffs
    June 3-7: Championship Round

    These series will be featured on the EA forums, Leaguegaming.com, as well as {click the twitch icon button in the chat to enable twitch streams},hopefully if we have streamers in every team.


    The requirements to participate in The EASHL Year End Playoffs Invitational are as followed:

    1. Your team must finish in the Top 12 of the EASHL 6-Player Ranking Leaderboard
    2. A GM of your EASHL club must have an account on leaguegaming.com
    3. The invitational is only currently open to users on the Xbox One.(I have not found anyone to host a sponsor playoffs for the PS4.)


    Good Luck to Everyone and stay tuned for more information.

    Pro Series is a scheduled commitment. If people play, then they play. There's a major difference up to the playoffs (which are scheduled)

    What im saying is the top 12 teams will likely be shitters playing 1000 games to gain top of leaderboard for this "playoffs"...09 and 10 were legit this is just hey go play 8 hours a day for a chance at nhl 18...rather play 40 pro series games and win 350 because this game is toilet streaks

    So be it. Williams needs to get a premium copy for HUT cards.

    You don't really need to play 1000 games. You have four months. Play 3 nights a week and don't lose and you'll be in.

    I guess we are going to complain about trying to bring in more competition or trying to keep the game competitive.
