  • (Quote) Ya, it is hard to say what the best solutions for these pieces are. I had asked the online team to match goalies first and then fill out teams from there. It very well may be doing that but with skill differentials and a smaller populatio…
  • (Quote) All good. You don't need to send any videos. It is usually just to ensure we are all on the same page and/or for very rare bugs.
  • (Quote) It seems from your response that you feel that I wrote that in such a way that I have known about it before seeing the video. I was responding to the comment that it was done by design to reward deflections and saying that as far as I am c…
  • (Quote) In player locked modes, the ai players perform defensive actions because they are there own players and you can't switch into them to play manual defense. The change was made in modes like HUT and VS to have more of the 1 on 1 moments cont…
  • (Quote) HUT and Versus have the same settings for ai actions.
  • (Quote) I know the HUT team always does retrospectives and look for ways they can improve the experience. From the pure gameplay balance and depth side, I have spoken to them about a few things but they are the experts when it comes to a mode like…

  • (Quote) Hustle is just asking to skate at your top ability forward. The accel and pivots are the piece that will make the difference. Hustle doesn't have any impact on those pieces.
  • (Quote) This is true. It is that backskating and acceleration, especially to angles behind you are too high. This is something we have continued to improve within the skate model. General accel for realism would be lower. Top speed is actually …
  • (Quote) Agreed. When there is a bug or a flaw, it won't necessarily make sense and usually doesn't. Due to knowing how things work I can make sense of how it would go wrong but in terms of how it should behave in the real world of hockey, it will …
  • . (Quote) Re: This happening due to rewarding deflection goals -- This isn't true. Goalies are late on deflections but if they were actually beat by the deflection on this goal, they would have dropped to cover the net for the original shot and ju…
  • (Quote) To add to this, there are also different roles on the team. I am fairly confident that there aren't many feature requests or gripes about the product that I am unware of. However, there are roles on these forums where it isn't an expectati…

  • (Quote) Well, that takes the bar that you want us to reach and assumes that if we didn't get there that we haven't done anything. We have made a lot of improvements to goalies at the fine level, finding frames of responsiveness, fixing transition …
  • .(Quote) Good stab at the end but that only shows you don't know me at all so will let it pass. Not sure if you are saying you liked NHL 14 or not by stating that it fell off for you in NHL 15 but was there a title you liked in the series and what …
  • (Quote) Ya, it doesn't really matter. I am not concerned who there best goalie is, I jus want to understand the statistics you are giving examples of and when it is confusing, it is good to get clarity. (Quote) Again, this is actually the point th…
  • (Quote) I actually see it as an online vault where anyone can upload a preset with every setting in the gameplay slider or rule changed if they want but then players can upvote them and you can also assign a personal 'verified' stamp to them as wel…
  • (Quote) Good Post. There are many things I understand your perspective and see eye to eye on. From our discussions, the only difference between you and I is that I happen to work on the game right now. I've played this series since 91 as well and…
  • (Quote) That was actually my whole point so not sure why you are making this an opposition. I don't see C. Lundgren as being the best goalie in that league (all I know are the statistics) and is why I asked you why you pointed to them as being the …
  • (Quote) I can't get passed how you keep the narrative that we are catering to these players, yet that exact quote was about my perception of why I think they are upset based on what they say, not how we have tuned or want to tune things opposite to …
  • (Quote) Why do you see C. Lundgren as their best goalie? Since it is sorted by Wins when you go to the page? A lot of the stats for goalies are tough because stats like save percentage are highly effected by the team anyways. The only thing you ca…
  • (Quote) Taking a step back, what is the gain for you to have DDA against you? The things that you are posting are making you angry. What is the benefit on our side to manipulate things to anger our players? If you are curious what happens in this…
