These confinement time are heartbreaking for fans of the sport. The competition was in full swing and almost all of them have had to stop at the same time. Some sports remain hopeful of a finish, but the more time passes the more things get complicated. Others have really decided to stop for this year and resume when the public health situation allows.
A real carton of hearing
Therefore, how can we enter into the season already well underway, appointing a champion and dolphins. Some will freeze the leaderboard, this is the choice that has made the League 1 of football, and many others are likely to imitate. The Finnish League hockey league (Liiga) has offered an idea atypical to finish the year. It is associated with Telia Esports and decided to reproduce the matches of playoffs using NHL 20, the game of EA Sports.
Specifically, each qualified team was represented by a single player throughout these playoffs. The template approach of what ought to happen in the real world with duels in the best of five rounds.
These protests were broadcast live on the Internet but also on television with the commentators usual, enough to enhance even more the immersion. The set has worked very well since the matches have attracted 160 000 spectators on average, a figure that is not negligible for a country of 5.5 million inhabitants.
The side of the participants, there were a few players esports experienced Finnish but also some local stars, including a champion of baseball, as well as Joni Tuulolan, a former player in the Liiga, which is now developing in the american hockey League.
On the sporting front, the simulation is rather close to the reality since the team Oulun Kärpät is imposed. This is one of the most successful championships in recent years.
If the measures of social distancing were to continue, there is no doubt that this experimentation Finnish could be mimicked. Other simulations friendly have taken place, especially on Fifa, but no one has signed as much as the reality that the Liiga.
