  • You don't say what strategies you're using, so I couldn't say. The general advice is don't chase. Just contain them to the outside, and cover the quality shooting lanes and one-timer passing lanes. The AI will eventually make a mistake and turn it over. Also try to pressure the AI as it first enters the zone so it can't get set up to begin with.
  • i used some of the strategies in youtubers video so i doubt its the problem.i noticed when i am chasing them they always score. ok thx i think you point me to the good direction. any other tips for me for the hut in game?

    @MikeyAU630 gave good advice. The AI on Superstar are always looking for open lanes for shots/passes so don't chase. The only time I'll suggest skillzoning is against the AI if they get set up in your zone. Control a defender and park them in front of the net. Eventually, they'll take a bad shot or pass that results in an easy turnover. Chasing opens lanes the AI will take advantage of.

    what do you mean by skillzoning? its a strategy to use in game or you mean to play passive in my def zone?

    Skillzoning is when you let the AI play defense for you. It's never something I would suggest against human opponents, but against AI on Superstar, it's a good way to defend.

    Hockey is a very dynamic sport. No 2 games are exactly the same. I too have lost to a team many times and then replayed them and won. Sometimes I'd lose both attempts against the same team. When I win on the second attempt, I'm a little more composed after playing them once. Many times I adjust how I play and maybe I get some lucky bounces as well. See my previous post for some help with playing against Superstar difficulty teams.
  • Is this your idea of defense lol

    Seemed like a normal play to me, especially those Jedi force passes

    That video is from CoD. Do you have a link to the NHL video you were concerned with?

  • You need a sniper to deal with Superstar AI sometimes
