RSHL - NEWS UPDATE
Thankyou to everyone for your commitment and patience in regards to RSHL season 22. For those who do not like to read long posts the vital information you need is here - The RSHL SEASON commences this SUNDAY ( APRIL 26th 2015 ). I believe that due to the way the league season works, these games may temporarily appear as pre-season games, when Janky can get RSHL to load and actually posts them.

I also have heard that a few more preseason games will be scheduled for this week, but that is between our dedicated scheduler and the captains. These games will provide some light entertainment while administrative work concludes this week.

IMPORTANT REQUESTS: CAPTAINS...
Please check your availabilities are as you want them - The leagues core times are 9 and 10 pm, I have removed FRIDAYS, as we have not played on Fridays since forever ( if ever... ) and re-added 8pm as an option for those teams that may prefer earlier games. I EXPECT TEAMS TO HAVE A MINIMUM OF 3 PREFERABLY 4 DAYS with 9 and 10 slots selected... 8 and 11 are optional.

Captains may also MESSAGE ME with 3 or 4 top preferential TIME SLOTS, i will tabulate this and pass it onto janky for consideration in relation to your teams HOME fixtures.

PLAYERS...
Make sure you are on the team you want to be on, swapping in the regular season risks gaining a suspension, you have had WEEKS to pick a team now, so I do hope your mind is made.

EVERYONE...
This zone, this league, has been a source of joy to all of us, due to many factors, from the personalities who troll the staff all the way too the volunteers that try to keep things running smoothly. The past 21 seasons have only been made possible by the banter, friendships and rivalries of everyone together in our community. This season our story continues, and you can be an active or a passive player, the choice is yours.

WE NEED MORE REFS, WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS. I could post an endless list of people who have burnt out in the last decade, many will probably ref one or two games if no other ref is online, but lack the true energy to make this season as exciting as the ones past.

Im sure many of you remember epic game reports, commentary and more.... help us bring the good times back, I eagerly await messages in game or in forum, and hope a new group of you will be joining the staff soon.

NOTE> CURRENT RETURNING REFS - go to ref forum... thanks.

WELCOME TO SEASON 22 - GOOD LUCK.

Moving Server Updates
We're hoping to switch servers tonight, but due to billing delays you will still see the error about the zone not being on central billing. That message is inaccurate, and you can log in safely with your normal password.

Mazer chalks up a W
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Interference 3 1 2 6
Mazer 7 3 3 13
Total game time: 36:00

As the teams entered the arena it was apparent that Baby Seal Killers was playing scrimmage. The game was 6 vs 5 for the majority of it and since RKDN+ was reffing and goal judging by himself he missed some calls, notably fur of fur being the goaltender ship and getting killed in the crease. If I find the time I will write up a real game report from the log buffer.
Status Update

RSHL / League Coordinator

Fur of fur, long time ref and moderator, is taking command as RSHL League Coordinator effective immediately. He will follow up with information on the official regular season start and other news.

Server

In the last week or two we have been playing on the first test server ("Server2") but it's very clear this cannot function as a permanent host because of frequent mass lag problems for the whole zone. We tried another test server, aka Server3, but that was retired due to other nonideal conditions. We have a new server, Server4, that should have decent quality, similar to the ones we had before a year ago when the DDoS hit. Please refresh your zone list and all league games will commence on this server. With any luck this will be the last server we have to test and we will be able to permanently move here. Thank you for your patience.

If you cannot refresh zone list for some reason you can manually add 162.248.95.143 port 7501

BSK survive comeback scare
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Revolution 0 1 2 3
Baby Seal Killers 1 3 0 4
Total game time: 36:00



This was very even from start to finish, with both teams dominating for periods of the game. BSK broke the deadlock late in the first period after Revolution had successfully penalty killed a soft 2 minute minor picked up by jalrix. The second period saw Jalrix and Sydor rally to tie things back up before BSK went on a short rampage led by zeppelin. The suspiciously yellow weasel notched up 3 goals in less than 3 minutes. Revolution did not give up and the 3rd period saw them mount a substantial comeback scoring 2 goals early in the period. But even with zeppelin boxed for illegal defensive activities, BSK managed to see the game out and hold onto their precious lead.

1st star: Joe~Sakic (3 assists, hrp, best defensive defensman)

Puker falls asleep.
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Short-Handed 4 3 5 12
Interference 2 2 4 8
Total game time: 36:00

I took over this game in the second period to allow Puker to get some rest after a long night of reffing.

Short-Handed seemed to have the game in hand with a 6-2 lead and 3 minutes left on a major penalty against Tjian for BDC. Navee managed to score his 3rd goal of the period (AKA his 5th goal of the game, AKA his team's 7th goal) before Tjian got out of the box. Both teams continued to trade blows but Interference potted 2 to shrink the lead to 7-4.

At this point, I realized I had taken over a game in the second period, not the third, and sighed.

Shortly into the period, Kor scored the goal of the preseason dodging bullets from both a defender and goalie and slipping a nearly vertical shot in just before the post. Not long after, Bopmem2 tried to spark his team with an own goal (or maybe he just decided pressing Ctrl before getting his ship completely out of the goal was a good idea). It took less than a minute for him to cancel that out on the other end, shooting from outside of the crease this time no less! But Cookiewolf was quick to answer back with a goal not long after the ensuing faceoff.

Things got a little more (un)fortunate for Interference as Kula (I think) stopped a sure goal in the crease. A MAP would have been great news for ITF, trailing by 5 goals and all; but with 4 minutes left on the clock, all they got was a MAPS. After Zyzz finally understood he had to start inside the crease, Mace and Bucky raced in with the puck from the blueline a few tiles past the blueline. They tried to get fancy, and the puck found its way to Zyzz.

Following the penalty, SH scored two more to spread the lead to 7. ITF mounted an impressive comeback effort, scoring 3 goals in the second to last minute, but it was not enough to close the gap.
Meatloaf tonight!
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Revolution 5 2 3 10
Haterade 1 2 2 5
Total game time: 36:00

2 out of 3 aint bad!



Three is how many NTS spaceships Haterade had to add before getting their lineup stable. Of course this could have all been avoided if Haterade captains had listened to the ref's suggestion at the beginning of the game. In order to avoid complaints about AllStars being added as NTS, the ref suggested adding Gothenks (aliased as "dad" [terrible alias by the way] - I would use any alias for hz, but I won't use that) instead of J-Walking. Well, J-W was added and lasted about 8 minutes, when, like a bat out of hell he was gone, he was gone before the morning come.



Afterward Kor was added and was able to make it through the rest of the 1st period. During this time of instability, RV was able to score 5 goals to HAT's 1. It was senior lt. pickle and Flew who made the difference by scoring two a piece.
Trick- disappeared for Haterade to start the 2nd. This was the point where gothenks was finally added as an NTS. Haterade finally managed to level the game from here on out. Their main weakness was sm*sf lagging out numerous times and allowing 2v0's. The final score does not do justice to how well m1ch played in goalie this game. He was glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife. C'mon! [m1ch] Hold on tight! Given the amount of breaks he faced, this game could have easily been a mercy. For the most part he was in position and held his movement on the breaks to avoid shots against his momentum. From what I could tell, many of the goals that were scored were with defense in front of him where both he and the defense were caught way out of position to even attempt a save, so it's hard to know where to place that blame. The goals were even in the 2nd, 2-2. Haterade got production from akd (with a gothenks assist) and Kor while Revolution had goals from Sex (formerly Fukuova) and cocain.

Unfortunately I can't say much about the third period. I was having lag issues of my own and was having enough trouble keeping the game together and dropping the puck to make any observations. Whatever happened to Wednesday night [on a good server], when you pinged so sharp and your ploss felt right? It don't seem the same since the server 2 came into my life.... Check the game report for who scored goals. In the final 30 seconds, this season was granted its first MaPS (that I know of) by a BDC by kai-. The goalie was out, but he flew into the crease to catch the ball when another ship was already parked there waiting for it. Haterade kindly granted m1ch and sm*sf* the opportunity to take the shot. One of the two (smsf I believe) never touched the ball though. Sex came out and killed the other off the ball before he got the chance to pass it.

Meatloaf: Sex (1 goal, 3 assists, 12 saves, etc)
Eddie: jalrix (2 goals, 3 assists)
Tiny from Wayne's World: senior lt. pickle (2 goals)

Rshl game is Cancel - Violence wants more preseason
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Interference 1 3 5 9
Creasers 1 0 2 3
Total game time: 36:00

The main excitement for this game centered around the pre-game antics. Up to 10 minutes after the hour, people were still logging in as Carrots (carets if you ask boring bopmeme) and the only chats that were working were yellow, blue and green. Apparently Arcadian had been trying to get this fixed for a while, but he did not have access to the Arnk Beacon which was only turned on once bucky arrived. Due to excessive flaming and being a toddlir, Violence decided to make a scene about it and left just as Arnk corrected the problem, and suddenly RSHL IS CANCEL entird. He was promptly kicked for reason "Dick Name" after which DICK NAME appears in the arini. The ref had seen enough and, with Creasers only having 3 players, was about to call the game. WHEN SUDDENLY! (not a sentence...) While typing ?setscore, bff shows up to save the day after which DuckName left and violence mysteriously re-appeared. The game would commence.

Now fielding a full team, Creasers wasted little time in scoring with a shot from puker. The rest of the game was dominated by Interference as is evidenced in the final score. Troydan opened up the scoring for his team and had the game's winning goal. Creaser's only other offense came from puker again and later by Vega (both in the 3rd period).

1st star: Troydan (Hattrick, 2 assists, game winning goal)
2nd star: Bopmem2 (4 goals, 1 assist, 0 own goals)
3rd star: Linix (19 saves, 3 gaa)
Rusty Spork: violence

Troydan saves scrim!
1st 2nd 3rd 1st OT Final
Interference 1 3 1 1 6
Haterade 3 2 0 0 5
Total game time: 38:07

5 goals against - 62.1 rating; 6 goals against - 111.3 rating ... I suppose you get extra point for playing the game's most boring spaceships. Also it seemed to most people that lanc prox grew three sizes that day. It even carved the roast beast.

In this very game Haterade had a 5-1 lead. 2 goals each by akd and t$z (ex-itfer) gave Haterade a lead that put them in clear control of the game. Bopmem2 was even gifting assists for enemy goals right in front of the net. How could ITF recover?! With a buck cat and a Troydan it seems. They accounted for ITF's next 3 goals to close out the second period and make this a much different game for the final period. After Bopmem tied the game at 5, the score remained the same and postponed HZ scrim for overtime which some believed would kill scrim for the night. However, enter the Troydan once again. Two minutes into the OT, he received a pass from bopmem and threaded a goal past the lanc goalie hitting the very bottom of the net. Game over.
Anyway, I can't write two of these reports in one day. I'm very sorry, but I tried. I hope it's enough for you all.

1st star: Troydan (2 goals, 1 assist, game winning OT goal)
2nd star: buck cat (3 goals, 2 assists)
3rd star: akd (2 goals, 1 assist)
Rusty Spork: bopmem (wouldn't have needed OT without his silly giveaway)
Animosity
1st 2nd 3rd Final
Creasers 2 0 2 4
Mazer 3 2 3 8
Total game time: 36:00

This match looked like it was going to be a grudge match before the players even took the space-ice. Mazer pilot Leafy seems to have a growing dislike of any player wearing a Creasers uniform. He began with verbal taunts that could have gotten ugly, but for some reason were met with very little resistance from any Creasers player. I didn't even see as much as a "noopi flamir" comment from captain Violence. This aingst was taken onto the pitch as well. Throughout the game rookie player, Leafy, racked up 92 checks. On the other end, warbirds Violence and Racka combined for 141 times getting checked.

There's not much more to say about this game. It was plagued by lag mostly with Creasers players who were already playing a man down. Mazer dominated the second period 2-0 while Creasers was having most of their trouble keeping their players in the game. Doobie, scoring both goals, apparently thrives under these conditions. In the third, the game finally saw some consistent 6v6 hockey after DK was added as a non-team sub. This turned out to be very helpful to Creasers (although not enough to make the game closer) as he put up 1 goal and 1 assist that period.

A note to all zone upper-staff that added themselves under a non-league alias this game: It messes up the stats sheet! If you would like to play league under a different alias, please use this preseason time to change your name on the roster. It sets a bad example to the rest of the league when you give yourself priviledges that are out of the reach of other players.... You are very close to being added to the list of players that will not score a clean goal this season.

Game notes: violence managed a 0.09 rpm. Both teams, though mocked beforehand about no-shows, again managed to get 6 players in the game at some point.

1st star: Leafy (2 goals, 2 assists, 92 checks)
2nd star: Beat- (goalie 2nd period - allowed MZ to pull ahead for good, 7 saves)
3rd star: Easton (2 goals, 1 assist)
Rusty Spork: Goldeye (reasons previously explained)
Bear Down!

I have to be honest; I would rather be writing about Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (Airplane, not Starship of course) right now. One pill made Cookiewolf larger, and one pill made Zyzz small, and the ones that Memorize was given don't do anything at all. Believe me, this game, for the first 11 minutes, needed some mushrooms, white rabbits, and great basketball players. It was hard to stay awake. When ... all the joy within you dies, don't you want someday to love? Don't you need somebody to love? Well, you better find yourself a Cookiewolf then. A big thanks to him for livening things up with 2 goals in the last minute of the 1st period for SH. On the other end, RV only managed one shot on goal the whole period. They seemed to wake up in the 2nd though getting goals from chrono and Gold. However, Gold also took a bad penalty toward the end of the period by shooting goalieship Zyzz in the crease after his team had been warned. Meretrix broke the tie game for SH by scoring a anti-SH (PP goal) as the penalty was ending.

In the third, Navigation master put his team up by two again, but it would be their last goal of the game. From here on it was all RV. Gold made up for his earlier mistake to get within 1. This was followed shortly by Fuxuova going crease to crease in a leviathan while running over and ballkilling the whole SH team at least 3x each. After the game was tied, kai- finished off the fatality with some quick head fakes leading to goals. For the rest of the game SH seemed flustered. It was either that or they practice on a goal that's 2-3x regulation size. It was unclear what SH members, such as, Kor were actually shooting at. Perhaps Iggy had gotten in their heads racking up 14 saves in the 3rd.

Special game notes: SH member, memorize, showed up to the game, but played 0 minutes. Flew took a penalty for shooting the goalie in the crease late in the game. This was the teams 3rd violation for this offense and 2nd penalty. Rookie 2pacZ came into this season looking for a team to goalie for and ended up on RV. His job looks to be in jeopardy for the regular season as Iggy continues to play well in net. Lag continues to be an issue this preseason. Even with the new server switch, this night extended the streak of games having multiple players lag out or be unable to play because of lag issues.

BEAR DOWN Short Handed! This will be a good regular season matchup for you.



1st star: Gold (2 goals, 3 assists, 1 penalty, 24 minutes game time)
2nd star: Iggy (17 saves, 2 goals against)
3rd star: Cookiewolf (2 goals, 1 assist)
Rusty Spork: With no clear dud in this game, the spork goes to SH management for giving all-star MeMoRiZe 0 minutes and Kor 36. (special note for someone: Isn't there a Chicago Bull that's getting 0 minutes at this time as well?)
Irish Seal Killers @ Clovers

Creasers 2 2 3 7
Baby Seal Killers 2 4 2 8
Total game time: 36:00

St. Patrick's Day game! This one was back and forth between two undefeated preseason contenders. Creasers goaltender Ghyslain seemed shaky in the second period, shooting the puck into his own net and later committing a respawnkilling foul (penalty taking Zanaz off of the ice for 2 minutes.)

In the third period, BSK toyed with Creasers, pulling their goalie and subbing goalies mid-play several times. Their attempts to continue their trend of preseason overtime were foiled, though it was close, as Zanaz brought it within 1 with 7 seconds to go.
