MARCH 19 2019
Dear NHOL Community Member,
The long awaited website update is just about completed so I want to send you
information on what the NHOL has added to the community for your gaming
EASHL has been revamped, and HUT is now part of the community so the NHOL is now
covering all the modes of play.
We are opening this to our existing members before we blast the 3,000 people in
our Play Station Community so you get a feel of whats new and what will interest
We ask that you please complete the short survey at the bottom of this message
so we can get feedback from you about the NHOL to make it better.
Please remember that the NHOL is in its infancy right now.
We will constantly tweak things along the way but your input is needed, whether
you are an active participant or someone who has been on the sidelines for
Our web guru WladoD aka Vlad has done an incredible job creating the websites
for Rated Random League (RRL), EASHL Open League (O3L), and the new HUT
HUT For Ever League (H4A).
Here is the thought process and the game plan going forward.
Beginning Tuesday night we will begin a process for recruiting new people to the
This process entails emailing people with instructions who sent in registrations
to join the group, processing orientations for Versus Leagues, and setting
people up in RRL.
As always about 50% of the people that come though this process make the final
grade for the NHOL.
We want people with mature attitudes, who want to play in structured leagues.
We are not here to be the biggest group, we are here for people that want to
play the game in a fun, and competitive way.
RATED RANDOM LEAGUE -RRL
HUT FOR ALL LEAGUE H4A
The NHOL is not trying to compete with the major EASHL Leagues.
We just want to be able to have our members playing with or against other NHOL
If you are in existing EASHL Club with your friends, or a team you no longer
need to leave a club to jump into NHOL play.
All game settings use the private function so it will not affect your stats or
Here is the basic plan:
The O3L is a chatroom to play EASHL games.
Once in the room ask to play a game, or state that you have friends who want to
play with you against any opponents.
Any friends you bring in must have filled out a NHOL Registration form in order
to be added to the website for stats, and the Groupme chatroom.
NHOL REGISTRATION FORM
The options are 2vs2 3vs3 and 4vs4 mode within 3vs3 or 3vs3 4vs4 5vs5 or 6vs6 in
At that point the report sheet should be filled out with the Play Station names
listed by team and the winning team will enter the score.
Complete details are listed here how it works:
Once we establish enough players over the next 4-6 weeks team captains will
conduct a draft of players for the EASHL Team League.
COMPLETE NHOL EASHL INSTRUCTIONS
The first group of recruits coming into the EASHL group will be given
information how the NHOL plays EASHL via email and a groupme invite.
Only for Versus 1vs1 and Hut do we do a detailed orientation.
They will have questions if you have the answer or can send the proper link that
would be great.
The Admins will be closely watching this group as far as behavior towards fellow
NHOL Community Members and for Sportsmanship.
Please include them in your games and party chats.
Again all will not make the grade, just do not get into verbal arguments with
Just call for Admin assistance.
One thing that I noticed is that when people are saying EASHL.
Once 3 or 4 people are in the EASHL chatroom they are quickly jumping into a
drop in game when they get 3 players, then a few minutes later 2 or 3 other
people pop on to play, and the possibility to play games within the community
goes by the wayside.
Also with the new randomizer for O3L now 4-8 people can play with the
randomizers telling you what team you are on.
We are starting this group because many of you play HUT and have requested that
the NHOL adds HUT to the lineup.
The basic game plan to build HUT is as follows:
There are many different ways to structure HUT Leagues that we have listed on
HUT INFORMATIONAL WEBSITE.
The 3 start up components for NHOL HUT will be as follows:
The Hut For All League (H4A) consider it like the RRL but you play strictly with
any of your Hut Team against NHOL members using any players you wish.
It will be used to evaluate layers ability.
Chances are even if I had a team of 99 rated players good players will still
There will be prizes, HUT Coins, Special HUT Card Giveaways, and Play Station
Cards to participants.
Your win/loss record, individual player ratings and goals for/against within
NHOL games will be tracked forever.
Our goal for you HUT players is to have different leagues outside for the NHOL
H4A, such as franchise, player draft, and Euro Leagues in HUT as an example.
That will be decided so that the actual leagues will be ready for the next
edition of the game this fall.
NHOL HUT TRADING EXCHANGE (The NHTE)
A great place to make verbal trades of players, jerseys, arenas, or collectibles
within the community so you can both negotiate trades.
You will spend less time in your auctions and be make mega deals outside the EA
Auctions that take forever to post things.
NHOL HUT WAGERING
HUT coins have a value.
Some HUT players like to play for HUT coins.
This will be allowed in the NHOL if the two participants wish to wager on their
The NHOL will hold any coins/cards for the participants.
The NHOL being the Trustee/Bank of any wager between the two, if needed.
In addition, if you just want to wager on daily or Championship wagers in the
real sports world every day the NHOL will post Daily Betting Lines on
Professional Sports, College Sports and NHOL Playoff Matches where you will be
able to wager on any event once you have opened up an account of HUT coins.
Maybe you do not want to even play games, but just want to speculate in the
Any HUT coins accumulated by the NHOL will be dispersed via tournaments and
special contests for H4A play.
All of this is for fun.
It will not be a gang buster event starting out but will grow tremendously over
We will use the period between now and next fall to test it out.
It will work great if you the community HUT player participates in the H4A so we
can try everything out.
Anyone willing to take a leadership role in this we will be happy to have you
FIRST HUT TOURNAMENT WILL BE MAY 31ST WITH A 200,000 COIN PURSE
INFORMATION WILL BE SENT TO ALL NHOL HUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS WITH INSTRUCTIONS

Greetings NHOL Member,
Just want to update you with a few things going on in the NHOl.

VERSUS 1VS 1 LEAGUES
We are just underway with our second season this year of Versus 1vs1 play.

play people that are close to your ability.
We have 4 Versus 1vs1 Leagues
L2-Above average players
L3-Average solid players
L4-Guys new to the game, or folks that aren't great but love to play.
If you have not played in awhile and left playing Versus because you felt you
were playing against people way above your level, we will find the right league
Just reply to this email and I will contact you and set you up. We have left a
few open teams for old NHOL members and new recruits coming in soon.
Currently we are playing among ourselves in the EASHL mode.
Previous to this year you had to leave a EASHL club you were in to play with
This is no longer the case, you can play with any group and stay in your group.
The way our group plays is as follows:
A group of 6-8 people get together in the EASHL room.
2 players are appointed captains and a select a team of 3vs3 or 4vs4 using human
We record what teams are playing each other and the score.
All matches get posted on the NHOL
You are tracked for wins/losses goals for and goals against.
You also have an individual rating listed.
You do not need a headset but they are helpful, as teams can be set using
groupme or you joining the party chat and just listening
It is great fun, and if you have never played in EASHL or as they call it now
World of CHEL, give it a try.
Please reply if you wish to be added to the EASHL chatroom.
We have been delayed starting our HUT leagues as Wlado our web guy has been
traveling and very busy in real life.
We are anticipating the final programming and coding to the website within the
next week or so.
Once it is completed and tested you will receive information for people
interested in HUT.
Every game you play in the NHOL is archived forever in our member and team
A player like Jack Spade or Magicbird can look back 4 years or more of how they
competed and what their records were in any mode the NHOL plays.
Usually once a Versus League season is completed we update everything and

Each group will have a lottery for draft slots set before the draft.
More information to come.
The NHOL was created to allow people to play whatever mode of NHL EA in an arena
where people did not have to deal with the online bad attitudes, or distasteful
manners of some people.
Our group is a mature group.
We want to grow so that we can get our groups targeted even closer to play by
All of our community members want to play competitive games, that are fun.
We will make mistakes along the way as we try different things, and adapt to
what EA offers us.
Please be patient as we still consider the NHOL in its infancy.
Years from now you will look back on these early days and see how things worked
out for the good.
That is it for now guys and girls, more information will be coming down the pipe
