XBOX 360 HF Silver Tourney

Hi guys,

This is the official topic of The Who Needs Good Players Showcase, sponsored by Dodedede16, ***** , and ***** (will add sponsors when they confirm)

The Who Needs Good Cards Showcase is a tournament in which only unboosted base silver or bronze cards are allowed. It features 4 divisions with 4 players each and 2 conferences with 2 divisions for a total of 16 teams. In the round robin you play each opponent in your division once. After the round robin, teams in each division will be seeded from 1 to 4.
For the playoff round, it will be single elimination. The top seed in each division will play the 4 seed, and the 2 seed will play the 3 seed. Winner of the two games play each other in a division final. Division winners from the same conference play each other in a conference final. Conference winners play each other for the Tournament Finals, which will be a three game series

The divisions will be based on overall rank.

The Tournament will be using a 3-point system (European System). That means in every game 3 points are given away. 3 for a win, 2 for an ot win, 1 of an ot loss, 0 for a loss.

The entry for this tournament is 5.3K and will go to the 80.5k prize pool (16 x 5.3K - don't forget the tax).

Feel free to make donations to increase the prize pool. Even a small 5K donation helps. Me and the other sponsors will likely add to the prize pool.

You will have exactly 1 week to complete your round robin games. After 1 week, the game results in a draw and neither team gets any points (hurts your playoff seeding)


The winner of this tourney receives 50k as of right now
2nd: 20k, 3rd: 10k.

In order to be eligible for the prizes, you have to get all your games in.

Everybody who wants to join, reply in this topic and/or send me a PM. Please don't forget you got to be ready to pay the 5,300 pucks entry. I will let you know which card to buy.

One of us will collect the money on a 2nd account so it is separate and we know where the 80K is. For those of you who question my trustworthy, I came here with one of the best reputations on the EA forums so this is not a scam


Please read the general rules below.

Here are the rules:
Entry fee : 5.3k for regulars which must be paid before the tournament
Teams : 16 teams (4 per division, 8 per conference).
Rosters Unboosted silvers only. HFC and Movember silvers are not allowed (MacKinnon Movember etc) because they are boosted. I will personally check everyone's rosters for boosts, and it is the job of each player before each match to check the other person's team. Please be honest though!
Reward : 1st: 50k, 2nd: 20k, 3rd 10K. Additional giveaways possible
Team Cap : Unboosted Silver Cards only
Cheesy play : The only thing that won't be tolerated is ragging the puck (playing keep-away). Playing good defense is what prevents “cheese”/”glitch goals” or whatever some people call it.
Regular Season : One round robin game against each team in your division. Home / Away will be random (decided by a PS3 user) That means a total of 3 games.
Overtime : Shootout in the Round Robin after the usual 5 min 4-on4. However there won't be a shootout in the playoffs. If the game is tied after 3 periods, we start a new game. Whoever scores first in that game, wins.
Deadline to play games : The regular season should not take more than 7 days. (Everyone needs to play 3 games). Playoffs follow with 3 days given per round.
Final deadline not met : If people have trouble getting games in, I will take a decision based on the situation. If you think, you can't play a certain opponent because he doesn't wanna play you or simply because he is not online, it is mandatory that you post in this thread when you are available on the final three days before the deadline. If you do that and your time windows are not too slim, you have the chance to win the game by default if your opponent doesnt react. If not, most likely both players will get the loss.. Deadline will be much more strict than in past tourneys as some players unfortunately took it too far lately.
The player is not accountable for this if his opponent won't play him, he will be however if his PS3 goes broke 2 days before the end of the deadline with 5 games to be played. I hope you get the idea. If a player quits out during a game and can be made accountable for this, he will receive an automatic loss and be removed from the Tournament
Tie breakers : In case of a tie in the standings between 2 players, the tie breakers will be Most non OT-wins, then Best Differential, then Best Differential in the game between these 2 opponents.
Playoffs : All teams make the playoffs. The Playoffs will be single elimination, except for the Finals which will be in best of 3 format.
Playoffs Brackets: In all rounds the best team faces the worst, the second best the second worst and so on (based on points in the round robin).
Lag occurrence : If you notice lag during the 1st period and the score is tied, you can quit the game and rematch to try again with no lag. If the score is not tied or you’re past the 1st period and lag kicks in, you deal with it.
Consumables The only consumables allowable on the cards are change team if you are a chemistry freak like some are, change position cards, injury cards, contracts and captain cards, which will be the only boosts allowed.

Penalties :
1. You are gone from the tournament if your forcefully quit out of a game (not a lag out)

Donations to the pool are encouraged, please, even 5K will do wonders. I will be donating as well. It will make the prizes better and we can do surprise giveaways here and there

Alright, I hope everything seems fair to you. Let's start joining.

Target start date Monday December 9

Have fun !

Let me know if you have any problems with the rules for the most part, things can still be changed. A big thing is whether people want to play more games or not

Thanks guys!

I think a cool idea would be to keep track of the top scorers of the tourney and if one of your players lead you get one of the cards donated?

It sounds like a pretty cool idea but I'm not sure how it will work because frankly there are only 3 round robin games before single elimination playoffs so thats a pretty small sample size to award a prize like that

Maybe whoever is first place after the round robin? Idk.

Random thought here but I think we should play more games 3 isn't that much, one bad game really hurts you.
Maybe something like you play each team in your divison twice or play everyone in your division once, then 1 team in every other division, this would be 6 games

Depends what everyone else thinks, I thought 3 games should be enough because this is a really busy time for everyone with exams and everything and then Christmas break coming up
