Disappointed with tuner

I know you can't please everyone EA, but that tuner is such a let down.

You only addressed the AI's ability to take delay of game penalties, but fail to reign back overly-aggressive defensive AI. You gave more power to the goalie AI which already has the agility of Spiderman, with a glove forged by Superman himself, and the reflexes of Batman.

Your answer to the crazy stick-lifting YOU yourself created by penalizing even the most harmless poke is.. more penalties for stick-lifting. You upped penalties for poking, stick-lifting, there are more charging penalties, and I swear there's a boarding penalty every other shift because you made it easier for guys to run players like this is NHL Hitz. I'm afraid to play D because it seems all you want me to do is play positions and not touch the player for fear of accidentally picking up a penalty.

So, not only have you handicapped human D's, but you also gave more power to the skate dekers that love to skate circles all day and keep holding onto the puck like they're robots while the stick and puck are magnets. We're now back to NHL 18 in that regard. Much appreciated.

I guess we also forgot about possibly nerfing hits from behind when on a breakaway, the AI being able to catch up with you when you're across the blue line and he's at center ice. Hits from behind, pokes from behind, steals from behind when your body is between the puck and the player (*cough* AI) somehow magically taking the puck away. You could have tuned back clean intercepted passes from impossible angles.

Not sure what else to say anymore.

  • I wish we were back to 18, we would have dressing rooms in dropins and no dressing room errors, which didn't seem to be addressed.
