    The user AI sucks. Playing another human and my cpu guys just skate around them not even bother to check by any means. What gives?? Keeps happening against human teams.

    In Online games where you aren't player locked (ie Online VS and HUT), the ai won't perform defensive actions. They will play positionally but it is on the human players to play manual defense against the puck carrier.

    I am not sure I
    really know what you're talking about?

    This means AI players won't poke, hit, stick lift, etc. They will rely only on positioning to defend.

    First I wanna say , I’m loving the changes in 21- the skating, defense, puck moving all ahave been improved. You actually have to do something instead of “just stand there” it really translates well into EASHL. Lots of L2 abusers say “so easy to lose the puck now... now what do we do?” I ask them if they know what R2 does. However, that’s the problem in online vs. Cross creases happen too easily because defensive players don’t tie em up!! I wanna pressure the puck carrier but can’t leave the slot alone with my AI cuz he won’t cover it. Then it’s just skillzoning. ... exactly what we are trying to deter.

    I hope they don’t up intercepts ... just buff AI in front of the net.


    Also: i’ll Probably make a thread about this but the first goal against me in 21 was a wrister from my blue line that trickled in. No screen...nothing! Even watched a human goalie make the save from the blue line only to have it trickle in. That HAS to be fixed.

    It sounds like they made a partial save, but the puck still trickled in. That happens in real hockey as well. Yes, I realize it may not happen as often as you see in the game, but you probably also play a lot more games than there are in an actual season. I don't see us changing the ability for pucks to glance off goalies and still find the back of the net, but the dev team is always trying to make them as realistic as possible.
