Anybody know how long this month's playoffs is going to last? Especially given the fact that EA fucked up the first day of the playoffs.

I have right now 1 game under my belt. Im still needing to win 3 games as of now. If anyone is willing to give me their 3 wins I will give a couple things in return. Firstly, I will give you 10,000 EA pucks for helping out. I will also give you the complete set achievement. Lastly, I could boost your rank up so you could qualify next month. Let me know if you guys are interested at all. The help would be greatly appreciated and in return I will help you out as well.

Are you 100% sure that you both have to be in the amateur playoffs to match up? Last year I searched online tourneys and matched up with people that were in the playoffs.

They changed it this year so that you only match up with people in the same tournament as you. I read in on the EA forums and every match I played in the Pro Playoffs tournament was against someone that beat amateur.

This is complete bullshit...

Listen to this:

I was in the final game of the amateur playoffs... winning 4-0 about midway through the 2nd period. And this guy is not even close to being good... He scores 3 goals in like a 5 min span, I pause to change goalies and call a timeout. When I hit timeout the game freezes, but my console is still running I sent the guy a message to see if he got a win for it. He said he did...I had no choice to turn off my xbox to get back into it. I got back in HUT and it says I didn't finish the game...

WHAT FUCKING BULLSHIT MAN... I should of won it to begin with if it wasn't for that garbage OT loss to a guy whom I stomped 6-1 the following game to win the amateur playoffs...

I am at a fucking boiling point with this buggy ass game.

acdougla17 is right about this not being a very good time to match up. Even if you are both searching at the same time, this is the peak time that people are on playing, plus it is essentially the 1st day of the playoffs so there will be a ton of people online now. Wait a day or two or try after 3am eastern time, that is when I did most of my HUT stuff last year.

Also, I need one win in Amateur so if anyone can give me one I'd appreciate it. Willing to give you my remaining pucks (will probably have 8,000 or so after playoffs) or I have some good FIFA 12 cards. It is just one win so you will still be able to get your playoff wins done this month since you are only eliminated after 3 losses.

Just wondering, if I throw xbox live on one of my old spare gamertags, will it be allowed in HUT playoffs that is going on now or is it too late for that?

I think you have to win 1 or 2 games with that GT and click to see if you qualified! not to sure how the HUT system works, I never evan qualified since NHL 11 was broken and never played 12 of it!

Can anyone throw me one more win? Finally matched up with my 2nd account in the final, game loads and it tells me both tags dropped from the game. Luckily it didn't count as a loss for my team so I'm still in the finals, but it did count as my 3rd loss on my 2nd account...

Another person gave me a win last night and I hooked him up with some pucks so I'll do the same for anyone if they help me get this last win.

Yes I would prefer qualifing over winning. I would also like the qualifing one in NHL 11 to work.

Yea, I think the matchmaking is also trying to match people that are in similar stages of the tournament as well as other criteria, especially when there are a number of people searching at the same time. When I started last night at around 10 ET I found my partner the first time for each of my first 2 games. The 3rd game it took about 20 searches or so. Then when I was in the final I could not find anyone I was working with (which included 3 other people at the time). Just kept finding the same handful of people over and over for almost an hour. My 2nd account wasn't even finding the same opponents that my main was.

I had no issue at 5am though, matched up first try, was really excited to get this out of the way, until the game dropped my 2nd and screwed me over.

I'm pretty sure that when I was searching last night I did match up with Stigga97 a few times, which would make sense if he only had the final left.

This is what I found during the EA Forums, it might work too for people boosting maybe but this what this guy found for trying to find someone for his Elite Finals and couldnt find anyone....

I take no credit to this. but it MIGHT work like I here NHL 12 did..

Since I couldn't find NO ONE after 2+ hours of searching an opponent in the Elite Division, I used the good'ol trick of using the Regular Online Game to progress in the tournament. Sure the multipliers are lower for a Regular Online Game than Elite Playoffs, but I couldn't care less, I wanted to play the Elite final. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, here is how it's done:
1-> Select the tournament you want to progress-in
2-> Advance to the bracket screen, and onto the Lineup screen.
3-> When asked if you want to advance or Edit lines, select Edit Lines and back off outside the tournament screen
4-> Select Regular Online Game and play a regular game.
5-> If you win the Regular Online Game you will progress to the next round of the tournament you selected on Step 1.

What this "trick" doesn't do:
-> If you lose the Regular Online Game, YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED from the tournament too! So it's not like it's a "life saver" or anything
-> You don't get "easier" opponents. The matchmaking for Regular Online Games put you up against people about the same skill level as you.

The ONLY advantage of doing this is to FIND OPPONENTS EASIER! Thanks to this method, I've finally reached the final and since I don't know if I have to play the real tournament game (instead of the Regular Online Game method) if I want the "Elite Banner", I don't want to risk playing a regular game.

I repeat: this method will GET YOU DISQUALIFIED if you lose the regular online game and will not make it easier for you to reach the final (I had to win against #45, #50 and #70 overall to reach the final)

Congrats

I got my ass kicked last night 6-0. Some of the dekes the goalie falls for is total bullshit. an NHL goaltender wouldn't fall for half of them.
