Welcome to the 80-84 player overall tournament. Hopefully shortly we will have a full enough group of players to get this going.
This tournament will be hosted by me

Pitboy43- PSN Pitboy43
The rules are as follows
-ALL Players including goalies and players on the bench much be NO LESS then 80 overall and NO MORE then 84 overall.
Here are the rules:
Entry fee : 5k for regulars plus a hold for unvouched new players (will be paid back after all games played, will go into a giveaway pool if games are not played by the deadline).
Teams : 14 teams (7 per conference).
Rosters Players between 80-84 overall only, also regular cards only no HUT LIVE, WC, MOVEMBER or any other special edition card. 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: 100k , 2nd: 40k , 3rd 30k and 4th: 10k.
Team Cap : Players between 80 and 84 overall only
Cheesy play : The only thing that won't be tolerated is playing keep-away. Playing good defense is what prevents “cheese”/”glitch goals” or whatever some people call it.
Regular Season : One regular season game against each team in your division. Home / Away will be random (decided by an XBox user) That means a total of 7 games; The top four teams in each conference make the playoffs and will be seeded by points
Overtime : Shootout in Divisional Play 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 21 days. (Everyone needs to play 6-8 games). Playoffs follow with 5-7 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 scrict than in past tourneys as some players unfortunately took it too far lately.
If a player does not complete 90 percent of his games and can be held accountable for this, he will not be able to proceed to the playoffs. 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 or has played less than 10 of his games and can be made accountable for this, all his further and past results will be voided. If he played at least 10 of his games and games have to be decided against him, he will be awarded 5-0 losses.
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 : 8 teams total make the playoffs. The Playoffs will be held in a best of 5 format.
Playoffs Bracket : In all rounds the best team faces the worst, the second best the second worst and so on (based on points per game in the regular season).
Quitting: If a player rage quits ingame, the goal differential in this game will be 5 goals by default.
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, and contracts
1. If you invite your opponent and you are not home for the game the following occurs:
- you or your opponent is supposed to quit the game right away and clear things up.
- if the game is actually getting played (it counts as being played when the first goal is scored) the results counts as played. There won't be a rematch or anything as your opponent is also responsible to know if he is home or not. You are going to receive a 1 point penalty though for inviting and playing a game in which you are not home. If this happens in the playoffs, the next playoff match will start with a 0-1 goal deficit for your team.
2. There are other possible penalties for collusion and other unsportsmanlike conducts to be decided based on the situation.
Donations to the pool are encouraged
