Does EA ruin your streak?

At this point I feel like EA has a code that makes it so you aren’t allowed to go on too big of a streak...

Me and my team go on streaks, we all have high quality internet, never lag. Whenever we go on streaks we will get up to about 10 wins and then get disconnected off the next game. Happened twice so far...no lag during the games, both of them we were winning and then randomly drop from the servers...feels like EA is against us

  • Twice is a pattern now ? Or is it confirmation bias ?

    Well I will say this...We've been at or around 35 games over .500 for about two months. We haul the mail and rattle off a few and get to high, we suddenly hit a losing streak where literally everything works against us, drop to 29 or 28 over and we go on a tear. I have played hockey for 25 years...and there is a major difference between hot and cold streaks, and this game. Sometimes I cant help but wonder if there is something at play there.

    Twice isn’t a pattern, it’s happened on our previous clubs and other clubs I have been on. Same thing happened with this other club, we went 17-0 and then 4 games in a row we got black screens where everything was completely black except light reflections on the ice. Then it went normal after that

    No. I’ve played a lot of club (around 500 games this year) and have never seen a pattern like that. We’ve gone over 50 games without a loss, but have also lost three straight. Simply comes down to skill, chemistry and often, most importantly, connection quality compared to opposition.
    Everyone on your club might want to re-install the game if you’re getting disconnected and having the black out glitch happen that often.

    The skill thing is fine, I don’t mind being beat, I know there’s better players out there than me so that’s fine. But even off of the 2 random disconnects on this club we were up by multiple goals in each game, nobody was experiencing any lag throughout and then POOF disconnect

  • I think it is just unfortunate timing more than anything. On EA games disconnects happen, it is just how it has always been particularly with the NHL series. Consider yourself fortunate it has only been a few times, most others have had it on a regular basis.

    Disconnects are normally the result of an issue with your connection. I have disconnected once this year. I've played more than 500 games. My friends also don't disconnect, but we all have taken the necessary steps to have stable connections.

    Played around 275-300 games this year, never lag like I have in past years, just catch disconnects at points whenever we’re on a good streak and always happens in the laterhalf of the match

    I dont know if EA has it rigged or not to end streaks,but I have had some pretty healthy streaks of 8 games or so then I would get to a certain level and loose 2 or 3 in a row and then win one or two and loose 3. Sooo to answer your question of the OP It does feel as if the game helps lower skilled players..but one thing I've noticed is OFFLINE the AI always wants to score two quick ones when your ahead,so is that a featiure that affects online too? I dont know.

    Whatever it is, it's not EA thinking your streak needs to end.

    By anychace did your opponet pause the game prior to disconnect? If so that was a lag switcher booting you off to get the win.Wierd thing like that has been happening this week on PS3.

    No. That's not how lag switching works. Pausing has absolutely nothing to do with it.
