    The Dutch club Tilburg Trappers is still playing in the Oberliga playoffs so it looks like they are going the way of 2017 and get relegated to Division II Group A again. As of writing Ukraine had just beat them 8-1.

    Round 2:

    - Japan 2-3 Romania
    - Poland 7-3 Ukraine
    - Estonia 4-1 Netherlands

    Standings
    1. Poland - 6pts
    2. Romania - 5pts
    3. Estonia - 4pts
    4. Japan - 3pts
    5. Ukraine - 0pts
    6. Netherlands - 0pts

    Slight correction. The Oberliga playoffs finished on 30 April with EV Landshut defeating Tilburg Trappers three games to two. So still not enough time for the best Dutch players to make the World Championship team.

    Netherlands pick up a win and keep their chances of staying up alive (only just). Romania just need a regular time win to earn promotion and have the Netherlands in their last game. So this is almost guaranteed. If Romania go up then Poland will miss their chance at returning to IA after being relegated in 2018.

    Round 4:

    - Japan 2-3 Netherlands
    - Ukraine 1-5 Romania
    - Estonia 2-3 Poland

    Standings
    1. Romania - 10pts
    2. Poland - 10pts
    3. Japan - 6pts
    4. Estonia - 4pts
    5. Ukraine - 3pts
    6. Netherlands - 3pts

    Romania beat the Netherlands to gain promotion to Division I Group A while that game also saw the Netherlands relegated back to Division II Group. They will probably aim to host that comp next year so they can delay it until after the completion of the Oberliga playoffs like they did in 2018. Romania's win is pretty impressive seen as in 2017 they were down in Division II Group A.

    Round 5:
    - Romania 3-1 Netherlands
    - Poland 7-4 Japan
    - Estonia 4-3 OT Ukraine

    Standings
    1. Romania - 13pts
    2. Poland - 13pts
    3. Japan - 6pts
    4. Estonia - 6pts
    5. Ukraine - 4pts
    6. Netherlands - 3pts
