    It’s only an animation fix and has no connection to player speed.

  • Update your rosters. They are over a month old.
  • Can you guys do anything about the power play because whenever I vs the cpu it’s non stop everyone on the team moving around instead of staying in one position and playing it like a real life power play
  • That's it? *long disappointed sigh* :(

  • Awesome! More improvements to garbage HUT but EA keeps ignoring the hardcore fan base of EASHL! Take us back to pre gen ASAP
  • Can you guys do anything about the power play because whenever I vs the cpu it’s non stop everyone on the team moving around instead of staying in one position and playing it like a real life power play

    Thats called cycling sir

    There's literally nothing hut specific in the notes.
  • Exciting with a patch, nice to see your still on the ice!

    Gg!

    You don’t “cycle” on the powerplay lol (well, at least in areas where good hockey is played). The AI in the game when running any powerplay will immediately move to “cover” for your open spot as soon as you remotely move out of their preferred bubble. That’s not how you run a powerplay.
    .
    Powerlays are about isolating defenders with a mix of movement and passing to force defenders to make a decision. I mean, 5-on-5 hockey is about this too. Creating time and space and 2-on-1 scenarios where defenders are forced to only cover one option. Powerplays have the luxury of already being at a man advantage so you can afford to condense the zone, be a little more static in your positioning, and have all non-puck carriers in shooting positions.

    If I start an overload on the side boards, I literally gain nothing when I start cutting to the net, and the low guy starts moving towards the boards where I was. What was gained there? How did that isolate a defender? How did that make the defender make a decision? At that point, that’s not even cycling, that’s just useless movement.This is a completely valid complaint, and it’s the reason the PP doesn’t come very close to resembling a real PP. Too much movement, not enough passing, and WAY too passive/conservative which prevents great passing plays from ever forming.

    Well after all that, I’m glad to see we have TWO AI improvements in this patch! I am extremely excited to the get some league games in this weekend and see if the changes are noticeable. I’m absolutely loving the attention AI have received in discussions and hopefully now in actual gameplay this year. Makes the offline community feel like we have a voice, even if it’s small and it wasn’t necessarily for us, I can assure you we very much appreciate the effort @NHLDev

    its just the animation, not the speed. ive noticed it before in game - the player doesnt have the animation wheres hes in full stride pushing the puck with one hand.

    It was a little bit of sarcasm lol sorry. I know you dont cycle like that on pp. It was a dig at the game

    Also, whats with it being easier to score on a pk than on a pp? I swear i score more shorties than pp goals.

    It's been like that for the last 10 years at least, in PP your player are dumb and in PK they are boosted. You can play highly aggressively in PK while in real life they will dump as soon as they got it.

    Also what about the one hand glitch in breakaway? It goes in all the time

    Poke check works about 60% of the time, not good enough should be more like 80%.

    Also Slapshot injury rate should much higher, in 5 v 5 80% of the teams don't play their man but crawl the net instead and it works perfectly.
