New NHL 13-14 Playoff Format

Hi Simon, I am new to V2 recently porting my league over. I have 4 Divisions (divisons 4 & 6 on far right are empty)

in the League Options : League # 1 Tab

I have my pro team settings to 16 Playoff Teams and 4 Division Leaders.

however when I try to check the "New NHL 13-14 Playoff Format" in order to get the wildcard standings like the NHL I get the following error.

This option will not be enforced because of some prerequeties settings (2 Division per conference, 3 Division Leaders, 16 Teams in the playoffs) are incorrect. Based on information above it would appear my settings are correct.

Can you help?

You said you have 4 division leader? The message state you need 3, no?

How do you change division leaders, I assumed it meant you need at least 3. In the new playoff format there are 4 division leaders.

Hi.

The current NHL playoff format has 3 division leader and 2 wildcard.
You can change the # of division leader with the “Number of Division Leader” option in the league option.

Sorry for the bump Simon but I am having an issue with this all of the sudden and we are in our 7th season.

We moved to the playoffs and we finished round one and I have manual playoffs setup and so I selected the proper matchups and now the sim won't allow me to do anything and keeps saying "Incorrect Information" no matter how I try to setup the matchups for the 2nd round and I'm stuck in the manual playoffs screen. Our league is setup just like the NHL, 4 divisions. I closed the sim with taskmanager and went to league settings and it is showing "3" division leaders in League #1 tab and it won't let me change it. How do I fix this so I can continue on with our playoffs?

Thanks in advance!

For anyone who comes across this thread with the same issue, the solution is manual playoffs need to be turned off and it will work. Simon advised he will have a fix in the next update. Thanks Simon.
