EA wants gameplay videos of problems, I will start posting them
EA is probably going to say I should have played better defense. I guess I could have. I could have been more precise with my left stick and hit him more squarely (although I did get a piece of him).
With that said, why should playing defense be so unforgiving yet offense can do whatever they want? A forward can skate full speed down the wing, pull a figure skating maneuver that Brian Boitano would be proud of - without mishandling the puck or slowing down at all, not being affected by (slight) body contact, then sending a no-look pass past two defencemen while the goalie watches the puck go through his crease without doing anything.
This is horrible, and nothing like hockey. The funny part is EA probably thinks this is closer to a highlight than it is to an indictment of how bad this game is.
