Face off improvements?
I really believe the face offs need improvement in NHL 20. There’s one faceoff that has a counter that works 95% of the time against it, so forehand win is pretty much unusable right off the bat. Then you have the tie ups, specifically one where the winger gets it but doesn’t control it then it goes to the other teams defenceman, even though you won the face off, and since you can’t choose which tie up to engage in, that makes using tie ups unreliable at times, especially if there’s no ai in the game and the wingers don’t know there’s a tie up. There should be a way as a centre to signal you’re doing a tie up and it’ll show to your wingers or something. Maybe give your overpowered slight puck warping to stick animation to make sure the right teams wingers come out with the puck? I get that there’s supposed to be realism in the form of faceoff battles and the losing team can still come away with possession, but the way it happens, when you cleanly win a faceoff and your winger just loses the puck out of nowhere, it’s extremely frustrating.
