  • I agree that passing shouldn't be the highest priority of things to fix, I was just saying because of my experiences with it, it could use some improving unless there is something I can do to the pass assist to help it out. Puck pick-ups and AI wou…
  • Whatever the default setting out the box is. I've never changed it. Is it more beneficial to change it? Can it be changed for online games? Thanks.
  • Honestly that was a tremendous wishlist. Kudos also to the dev who took the time to respond to that piece-by-piece. I liked a lot of what was suggested in that wishlist. Thanks for sharing the link to that. It was hopeful to hear the dev say that t…
  • The passing mechanics are terrible. I've had passes go to the complete wrong person, I've had passes aimed correctly that go in odd directions. I've had passes right to my cpu teammate and the second you release the pass button he skates away from t…
  • On the forums, you see responses going into great detail about how this intensely deep formula goes into everything. Oh if you add the way you are turning, plus player rating, and we calculate wind velocity, etc etc. :D Yet you turn on the game an…
  • I think it's both. There is no way the AI is this bad without being coded this bad on purpose. They coded the AI so you can't even trust them. They are so unpredictable. You don't know if your AI teammate is going to be in position or skate away ran…
  • Here are my speculations and I get the feeling they will be premonitions if you will. NHL 19 will feature more... Terrible AI Terrible Puck Pick-ups and Physics Terrible goals given up by 90 plus rated goalies Terrible connections online Terrible m…
  • Just played an Online Vs. game, won 3-1, but found it more frustrating than fun. It has been the same theme since NHL 15 came out. Let's make the game as frustrating to play as possible so that we can attempt to close the skill gap. Everything is …
  • This. Old player switching system worked great. I can't recall any posts on the forums complaining about it but now we're 3 straight years into having the newer playing system which is clearly not working right. I've had it take 2-3 seconds sometime…
  • BMH alone provided loads of visual feedback for them over the past several years and I don't see where it's made a single difference in the progression of this game. The only constants since current gen is that the game is designed to produce frustr…
  • I get what the OP is saying for sure, but keep in mind that one man's version of sim hockey is another man's version of arcade hockey. I'd prefer sim if done right. I'd like to see the same attention to detail for this game that MLB the Show and NBA…
  • They have absolutely dropped the ball with online play this year (as they have in previous years). No doubt about it, they need to make online play a major priority going forward. However, pretty much every other aspect of the game is a 10 out of 1…
  • You're right buds, I should. B)
  • Aside from the server issues, MLB the Show 17 is a tremendous game. It's not perfect, but it is very solid from a gameplay standpoint this year. And there are difficulties that cater to different kinds of players (from Rookie to Legend difficulty). …
  • I agree, I don't think it's Ben's fault. I think Ben has been told what kind of game to make and, like most people, he enjoys receiving a paycheck, so his choices are either leave the company or make the game they want. I've never worked a day at E…
  • What about roster sharing where we could download rosters created by other players? Would there be licensing issues if a customer of the game created historic rosters and uploaded them for game sharing? Slider sharing would also be a major addition.
  • Sign me up in the arcade camp then. I'd much prefer a game that doesn't send your passes off in weird directions and I'd much prefer a game where your controller feels like it's working 100% of the time. NHL 14 was better from a control standpoint t…
  • Yep, agreed as well. Every tuner and update slowly turns the game clunkier and more frustrating. Couldn't tell you one thing that was legitimately fixed the last 3 years in an update, but maybe I'm just forgetting something. Could go on and on thou…
  • Only thing is that once in a blue moon moments in real life should also be rare events in the game, as well. I'm cool with the rare missed open net, or the rare missed wide open pass, the rare amazing save, etc etc. But as we all know, in the NHL se…
  • That's why I think the game deteriorates oh so conveniently right after the beta. These tuners and patches always make the game play worse in my personal opinion. From the Day 1 update all the way down to the last update, the game slowly turns back …
