Does anybody know of any playable league in any database where there is a preliminary playoff round between the teams that finish mid-table from the regular season, the winners of which compete in the playoffs against the leagues' top placed teams?

I am trying to recreate the 1974/75 NHL where:

  • the top 4 teams qualify for the playoffs;
  • the 8 teams that finish behind the top 4 play in a preliminary round (best of 3 series);and
  • the 4 winners of the preliminary round games qualify for the playoffs and play against the top 4 teams from the regular season.

I have the regular season and the preliminary round up and running but I cannot figure out how to set up the playoffs (which will need to draw the 4 winners of the preliminary round and the 4 divisional winners). :-k

The SHL has a similar set up.
Top six teams to playoffs, seven-through-ten to a "play-in round"

Hello

I have a request for those who are confident/experienced with the editor.

I'd like the finnish Liiga to be edited in order to feature play-down/relegation structure.
Liiga has 15 teams, while Mestis has 13.

Here's the idea I have :

At the end of the season, 2 last teams of Liiga play a set of games against team 2nd of the Mestis League.
Winner of Mestis is sent to Liiga automatically, and winner of the relegation league gets to stay/go to Liiga.

Relegation league would feature home/away games between all 3 teams, with points counting the same as regular season.

Can someone set this up for me ? with TBL or xECK29x rosters ?

Thanks by advance !

(maybe this post is offtopic ? If it needs a new topic, I'd be thankful for a move by and admin ^^)

I think it is unlikely (but not impossible) that you will find somebody with the time or willingness to do this. Your best chance of success is to try to do this yourself. It isn't really that hard; it's just that people are put-off by the number of settings.

A starting point would be to find some existing settings which fairly similar to what you want to achieve. You can then use them as a basis. You could also look at my draft guide which will give you some pointers: viewtopic.php?f=110&t=18927#p233918

Hello everyone, I have a question, is there a tutorial to create a roster database? I want to create a "correct" database for the Swiss national league, can you explain me how can I do this?

Re: Generating league schedules

Postby Javs » Mon May 07, 2018 11:43 pm

I have took xECK29x-Roster's and added a 32nd team (Seattle). I changed the number of teams in the NHL under Competitions>Rules&Structure>NHL> 'Basic Data' and adjusted the Western Conference under 'stage' tab to 16 teams. I also have 8 teams per division as listed under the 'structure' tab. I then imported the schedule from NHL32 - Seattle v4.0 database which incorporated a 32nd team.

I get no errors when loading the database, however Winnipeg doesnt get any games scheduled. I double checked the schedule and they have teams 0->7, 100->107, 200->207, and 300->307 scheduled so I don't understand.

Any tips?

This is driving me insane now so I'm hoping someone can help.

I've created a 42 team NHL - removed the east and west conference but consists of 6 divisions. The 6 division winners make up the top 6 seeds, 7-16 make up the rest of the playoffs. So the first round goes 1v16, 2v15 etc.

Everything works exactly as intended until the final playoff game - once a team wins their 4th game in the playoff final the game crashes every single time. There's no error box that comes up as has happened with previous tests to help identify the problem, just 'ehm is not responding'. Any ideas as to why this might be?

Any way to edit the OHL / WHL / QMJHL protection territories? I would like to edit them to province by province to try and enable Canadian Jr.A leagues

I didn't take the time to thank you for this, since I have more time to try things out in editing, I'll have a shot at a swedish-like finnish league system :)

No I don't think there are any province settings in any of the league rules at the moment. I suspect this is hardcoded at present.
