Buck Cat Suspension

After deliberation the BOD has decided to suspend Buck Cat for
(1) playoff game for league tampering.

Context: The BOD decided that in the case of a veteran like Buck Cat who is frequently less active during the regular season than the post season, the suspension would need to take place during the playoffs in order for it to be a meaningful punishment. Therefore, a single playoff game will be served in lieu of a multiple game regular season suspension.

RSHL Season 27 Begins

With the draft concluded RSHL Season 27 is now underway. I'd like to thank everyone who helped organize the draft so we could have a timely start for the new season. Special thanks to cereal n milk and arcadian for helping out with logistics on draft night, and to Weeze and the wqlf for providing color commentary on discord during the draft.

For anyone who missed the draft here is a link to the spreadsheet of the draft picks:

Team captains remember to set your avails as soon as possible for the league scheduler. In the mean time the first week or two of preseason may be scheduled with open availability while teams are still figuring out optimal times so we can get preseason settings testing underway.

Players, try to play as much as possible over the next month or so in order to give proper feedback about settings so things can be changed or tweaked for the regular season.

Good luck to all teams in the upcoming season.

Season 27 Announcement

Congratulations to Creasers for winning the Season 26 Blackie Cup.

As some of you have already figured out, I (Thrill) will be the LC for the upcoming season. I know not everyone in the zone considers me to be their best friend, but I plan to get things done, so let's cooperate and get some things done.

In the interest of getting the upcoming season started as soon as possible, season 27 will be Draft Format. For those of you that were hoping for traditional, don't worry, the plan is to alternate between formats to be fair to both parties, and we should be returning to traditional format for season 28. All the relevant plans are laid out, so the season can start as fast as you guys are willing to let it.

Primary goals

-Get season 27 structured and ready to start as soon as possible
-Move league settings in a direction that will reduce lag and improve playing experience

The Draft

The draft will be a single captain draft (No more co-captains!), most likely with 8 teams. The current plan is to select captains within the next couple of weeks so that we can have the draft during the first week of January and begin preseason the second week of January. The very rough date selected for the draft is January 3rd, but could be changed based on how things progress in the next couple of weeks. We will be holding off on announcing and finalizing the order and format of the draft until all the captains are selected so we can ensure the fairest draft process possible.

If you are interested in being a captain, leave a reply in this thread or send a forum PM to me including your team name. The more options we have for captains, the smoother the season we go, so if you think you could be a good draft captain, step up and volunteer so we can improve the league. Everyone wants things to move in a positive direction, but that can only happen if people are willing to help out in whatever way they can.


It's no secret that the amount of lag that is present within the current settings is very frustrating for most players. The amount of phasing, prox cuts, 50/50 goals, and general lagginess of the game is at an unacceptable level. Doobie has been working on settings for several months to make some changes that are intended to reduce the amount of game lag that is contributed by settings. This was primarily done by slowing things down a bit. The settings have been tested in a scrim or game format from time to time, and
it seems to be pretty undisputed that there is less phasing and 50/50 lag situations in these settings. However, we need your help to fine-tune these settings to make them ready for league play.

The settings in Doobie's test arena .?go Slowish have been moved to pub. Please actively play in these settings over the next couple of weeks if you are able to in order to give feedback so we can fine-tune anything that needs to be changed for the preseason. The plan is to modify the current test settings after this test period to use as test settings in the preseason. During the preseason we will continue to monitor the settings and then finalize any settings changes for the upcoming RSHL season based on the results. Below is a summary of the current changes that have been implemented in the pub arena:

Test settings changes

-Initial/Maximum Speed, Initial/Maximum Thrust, Shot Power, Proximity of all ships decreased by 15%.

-Slight additional nerf to Weasel prox, likely to be increased (Weasel should not be the ship with the largest prox).

-Shark thrust cost doubled

-Lancaster is exactly the same as the S11 Shark


We are also currently looking at cleaning up the language of several rules to remove ambiguity and ensure that rules and calls are more consistent across the board. There will be more updates on this before the season as we determine the best wording for certain rules.


If you're not sure you can help out by committing to be a draft captain, volunteering to a ref a game even as little as once every couple of weeks would help out a lot. If you're interested in helping out in this capacity, leave a reply in this thread or shoot a message to myself or arcadian and we can get you set up.

Thanks for your time and co-operation, let's play some Hockey Zone

Season 27 Announcement

Draft Date

The draft date is set for Wednesday January 3rd at 10 pm est (Tomorrow). This might seem like short notice, but gathering avails has been an ongoing process and the 3rd was the best day for the captains out of the potential draft dates. This is subject to change in case something goes wrong for some reason, but I don't anticipate that happening. The draft signup should be available by the end of the night for people who weren't on a roster last season but want to participate in the draft. If anyone misses out, we will have the opportunity to get everyone on teams before the regular season starts as we may have an extended preseason for more settings tests. The priority at the moment is to get teams drafted and preseason games started as soon as possible so we can properly test the settings changes in time to make changes for the regular season.

Draft Rules


-RSHL season 27 will be a snake style draft (i.e the pick order is reversed every round)
-Draft order will be selected captains. Captains will each rank the other captains according to skill. Each captain will select their position in their draft in order from lowest ranked to highest ranked.

-The draft list will consist of all rostered players from RSHL season 26

Captain list

07- Cya
Kai- Sour Dumplings
Kula- Lightsabers
Lawn Dwarf- Flying Spaghetti Monster
Stevewhitmer- The Top Rope
Batman2- Yung Money
Violence- Viop's Speed Demins
Cocain- Cherrypick

League structure

-Every team will play each other twice in the regular season, resulting in a 14 game season
-RSHL season 27 will feature a 4 team playoff with a play-in game
-The top 3 seeds from the regular season will be awarded an automatic berth into the playoffs
-The #4 and #5 seeds will participate in play-in game to determine the #4 seed of the playoffs
-The semifinals will consist of a 3 game series between #1/#4 and #2/#3
-The finals will consist of a 5 game series between the winners of the semifinal matches

Trade process

-Captains will majorly be afforded the right to trade players as they see fit with minimal interference from the league within reason. In the case of any heavily unbalanced trades or collusion a trade committee of 3 trusted and experienced players including the League Coordinator reserve the right to veto problematic trades. Below is a list of useful criteria that will might indicate a trade may be veto'd by the committee. Keep in mind that isn't an exhaustive list, and also that these are just precursors for why a trade MIGHT come under scrutiny.


-Trades that are perceived to intentionally advantage one team involved in the trade at the expense of other teams in the league
-A low ranking team trading a player to a higher ranked team for unequal value in order to give them an advantage vs other teams

Unbalanced trades

The point of potential review for unbalanced trades is not to prevent a team from getting ripped off, but to protect other teams in the league from having to play against a souped up team that acquired it's assets in bad or unbalanced trades.

-Trades made with honest intentions to try to improve a team for unequal value that give a team an unfair advantage against other teams in the league.
Example- A team trades good players for average players to address positional weaknesses to an already strong team resulting in other teams being unable to compete with the 'super team'
-Trades where captains may have misjudged the value of a trade and the statistical performance or skill gap of the players involved in the trade is too disparate to ignore
Example- A team trades an MOP caliber pick for an unproven or average performing player

Trade Deadline

The trade deadline will take place no later than the midpoint of the season. A specific date will be determined and announced at least a week in advance of the trade deadline.

Waiver process

The waiver process used will be the same as waiver processes in previous seasons. Here is a brief explanation of the process, a more complete and elaborate explanation of the full algorithm will be available in a separate thread.

Waiver priority is calculated using an algorithm that factors in team performance along with the the quantity and quality of each team's previous waiver picks, such that teams that are low in the standings or have not claimed players are more likely to win the claim. Quality is evaluated by the number of teams claiming the player, so teams should claim any player they would be willing to have, even if they do not expect to win the claim.

Note:Standard league rules regarding penalties and tiebreakers as laid out on the RSHL website still apply. The rules will be modified with minor revisions that will be announced and explained when any of the policies are changed
