NHL 18 Beta, AI Problems

why Draisaitl completely abandoned the person he's suppose to be covering is beyond me, why did he skate so far to the left after the guy I was going against won the faceoff cleanly?!


  • He abandoned the offender because the skating engine is garbage and you can't pivot side to side without turning or significantly slowing down. AI knows this and makes vertical moves rather than lateral side steps.
  • Your right there, honestly imo tho this is the closest we've gotten to a really good NHL game, they just need to fine tune a few things like Skating, Puck Pick Up and Passing, which aren't far off but still need some work
