Do us a favor EA and just shut down the release of the actual game and go back to the drawing board. This game is going to be awful as usual. The defensive skill stick is almost completely useless, but hey, you can stick poke check any puck within a miles radius. Skating is still a train wreck. Guys jump 30 feet in the air randomly. Deking is broken. The 14 button combinations don't help either. And how the hell is it taking this long to acknowledge the problem of defensemen catching everyone on a breakaway EVERY time??? Last night i was a full zone ahead of anyone and the guy got back and poked me before I shot. It's a complete joke. Can you please fire these idiots and get some new people in there. It's about time. Don't tell me it's just a beta wither because if you think these things are gonna be fixed by release, you must have not been around here long.
