  • (Quote) Sums it up pretty well. Unfortunately, the same people with big wallets and perfect internet will throw truckloads of cash at EA every year and us normal peasants will have to suffer until they decide they want to fix the problems.
  • You will find most solutions offered from EA to be of the "snake oil" variety. I'm not saying they can't work, but in most cases they don't make a lick of difference in the end. You could throw tons of time, money, and resources at this …
  • (Quote) I should try to be more clear with what I was trying to say before. I'm not claiming that their is a direct ICE TILT programmed into the game, though a "balancing engine" wouldn't be out of the question since it has been document…
  • (Quote) I've always wondered what percentage of games are quit ONLY because "the force is strong with this one." It really is THAT obvious when it happens against you, and it's pretty obvious when it's in your favor as well. Imagine how…
  • (Quote) The trap is a legitimate defensive strategy, otherwise it wouldn't be in the game. Truth is that no matter what strategy you use you must rely on four other AI in some way or another. The thing with defense though is that no matter what s…
  • (Quote) Don't feel bad. I "run the cash register" so I have no experience in the field either LOL. This isn't limited to just server stuff either though. Many games are peer-to-peer where it's only two players on at one time, so it's n…
  • (Quote) Just a hunch, but if EA put an end to "fat-man lag" I bet you would see a lot more people start playing the game again. It really seems like the lower the ping the faster my opponent's team will be, which makes absolutely no sens…
  • (Quote) It's funny you mention something like that. I've always wondered why the super low latency games are usually not in my favor in any way, but the other day I played two games in a row of 120ms latency and they didn't really feel lagged at a…
  • (Quote) These three games were played in the Online VS mode, so they were P2P. All of the games were in the 30-45ms range with no notable changes/spikes. I've had those games in the past, but today the graph was very flat over the course of all o…
  • (Quote) No it wasn't an accidental disconnection. First game my opponent couldn't move and appeared to be stuck in mud, so I killed him and he rage quit. Second and third game I couldn't move and was stuck in mud, but my opponent was all jacked u…
  • Go play NHL Legacy or earlier on the 360 before it's too late.
  • (Quote) I'm not sure of the "real" numbers, but every year EA has a good number of full-price "AAA" games which seem to draw obscene amounts of cash in their gambling/lootbox/packs/etc. model they use. I don't think it's too fa…
  • (Quote) When I think of EA Hockey the terms that come to mind right away are "red-headed step-child" and "tax write-off"
  • My thought is to stay as far away from this pile as you possibly can. If you ONLY play offline then buy it used at a steep discount (20 bucks or so maybe.) You are stuck with EA's play settings if you play online, and that is VERY bad, but you got…
  • (Quote) Not only better players, but how many of said "better players" are skill-zoners? It really is sad that the game is built to cater to players who let their AI do all the heavy lifting. It would be nice if all game functions worke…
  • (Quote) I'd throw in a little Five Finger Death Punch and Disturbed to go along.
