2013 LetsGoBlues.com Playoff Challenge

Postby cprice12 » Sun Apr 28, 2013 4:21 pm

It's going to be a little different this year...and maybe better.
We're going through NHL.com's Bracket Challenge contest. This way, you guys won't have to wait on me for results.
The setup is different. I believe you pick like you do for the NCAA tournament. Everything all at once at the beginning. So you set it, and forget it. This will also be good for those that play, but forget to submit picks every round.
And, most importantly, it's much easier for me. :grin:

Register & Join League:
League URL: http://playoffschallenge.nhl.com/playof ... gmac.email
League Name: 2013 LetsGoBlues.com Playoff Challenge
League Password: chopper2

Scoring & How to Play:
http://playoffschallenge.nhl.com/playof ... ow_to_play
HOW TO PLAY
Predict the bracket before the Playoffs begin, as well as series length for all Round One matchups. Come back each round to check your progress. In Round Four, predict total goals scored as a tiebreaker.

Click on team logo to choose the winner of a series.
Set your series length prediction in Round One.
Click the save button for each round and your picks will be stored.
You can change your picks up until the start of the first game of the Playoffs.

Scoring
Correct Picks:
Round 1 - 10pts
Round 2 - 20pts
Round 3 - 30pts
Round 4 - 40pts

Correct Series Length :
Round 1 only - 5 pts

Seeding points for all rounds
If you correctly predict the winner of a round, you will be awarded seeding points based on the seed of that team.

1 seed: 1 pt
2 seed: 2 pts
3 seed: 3 pts
4 seed: 4 pts
5 seed: 5 pts
6 seed: 6 pts
7 seed: 7 pts
8 seed: 8 pts


You can register and join our league now, but you can't actually make your picks until after tonight's game is over and the seedings are all in stone.

This is a private league. Forum members only. If a buddy of yours wants to play but isn't a member here, that's cool, just please have them register here and say hey...and hopefully they will stick around and contribute. The more the merrier.
When you create your entry, just use your forum name as your Entry Name...so we know who everyone is.

Winner gets a forum signature again.

Good luck fellas.

I like this new setup. I suck at this every year even when I know the correct matchups for each round. Maybe by some dumb luck I'll do a decent job selecting them from the start. :mrgreen:

If Windows 95 was good enough when I joined the Forum I see no reason to change anything.

I'm off to play some Doom now. :P

Security issues and incompatibility problems would be a major concern for folks still on Win95. That's a pretty good reason to change/upgrade.
Same line of thinking with the forum software. It needs to be upgraded at times to stay current with security fixes. And using a more stock "out of the box" theme (what we have now), makes it easier on me for future forum updates/upgrades. Which is part of the reason why the layout is what it is now.

And I was more of a Heretic and Descent guy myself. Back in my SIUC days, we ran a direct cable connection between two PC's and played networked games of Descent & Heretic all of the time. That cable looked just like an old printer cable and it went directly between two PC's. No router, no ethernet...just a printer cable. And it worked great. I did always hate having to select the sound card and joystick I was going to use though... "Soundblaster Pro FX" or whatever the hell I had at the time.

I... think I got my picks entered. The process was a little different than advertised above. The NHL website wanted me to sign in with my email, and never asked for the league password of chopper2. But it did say 2013 LetsGoBlues.com Playoff Challenge at the top when I entered my picks, so I think it turned out right.

Well, I'm out this year.

No way I can log into the NHL site. It says Login Service Unavailable. It has all day.

I even tried making a new account, and it told me Login Service Unavailable.

Craptastic.

Can someone help me out? When I click the link it looks like I need to enter an email address and a password.

Do I enter the email address I use for the forum and the password Curt posted?

Or do I have to create a new account on the NHL.com site?

Thanks. :grin:
