Line changes?

Recently I’ve noticed in be a pro that my team won’t do a line changes unless it’s a stoppage of puck or switching from special teams to even strength. I’m not even called to the bench and can play an entire game and will only change lines if I press B. Did the update cause any of this?

    Under your 'Be a Pro Settings' did you happen to change it from 'Authentic' to 'Classic'?

    It is possible he may have done that, but he states that his team never line changes during play, only between whistles. If I recall, in the last gen games prior to NHL 13 you would be responsible for getting off the ice when a line change was called.

    There may be a combination of the switch to "classic" and some AI coaching logic not being executed.

  • Ok, so I think I found the problem. In my settings in the main menu I switched line changing to manual(when I play online and with friends I prefer this). This carried over to my BAP settings when I started it. Unfortunately I can’t change it and have to start a new one but this was the problem I believe.
  • I am assuming ths happened with a brand new BAP file? Test to see if an existing file will still have this issue or not after making those changes. If so, this is a huge problem that needs to be resolved in a patch.
  • It doesn’t. It only effected the new file that I created after changing it

    Keep this in your records for future reference.
