The General EHM Online Forum has now been merged into the General EHM Chat Forum. Aside from some league advertisements, there was relatively little online gameplay discussion to justify it continuing as a separate forum. The SBHL/WHL Dressing Room forum and the two Trade Block forums have also been deleted due to inactivity. Sign-up and rules threads are now located in the SBHL and WHL forums respectively.

Welcome to the new design website and forum

We are pleased to announce the upgrade of our website and forum! The last upgrade to the website was over seven years ago, on 5 March 2011. Back then we were just about to release the Lidas/Manimal Rosters v3.1 and we hadn’t yet created the Custom Start Date Patch. How things have changed in that time!
