  • Dump in chase is not a high percentage play in real life or in this game. But it is very viable. It is gambling on the other team not being to be able to recover from their defense likely getting to the puck first. A win for the dump and chase team equals a nice corner bouncing puck where the defense is bumped off of it…
  • If I had to put it into words though and try and make it as simple as possible its this: In a 1 v 1 breakout and you are backskating - Never change your speed. Maintain poke distance away (never poke) and the reason for maintaining this distance is that they are skating backwards and have taken away your ability to poke…
  • Not sure if you are being sarcastic or not. Would certainly put together some clips. I would not be surprised if people told me that the people that I stopped in the clips were not good at using LT but regardless I would do it. I know that I am coming across like a complete jerk in this thread. It also appears like I have…
  • Every now and then I have witnessed some awful goals go in but I don't feel this is that frequent. Definitely sucks when it happens. Combined with the fact that good teams usually don't take bad shots, so good teams rarely benefit from "soft goals" as much as a bad team might. But I never expect or blame my G to make a…
  • @bryta47 letting someone know that claiming you are a top defender and claiming LT spam is tough to stop don't go together and then covering all the standard excuses people would use to say I don't know what I am talking about is the only way to silence people on these forums. Alot of people don't seem to get it and choose…
  • Not sure if you are PS4 or XBOX but you are either a TOP D guy or your are not. I laugh at LT usage because it's not difficult to stop at all. I am not saying nerf the skil or to not nerf the skill I really don't care either way but you have got to be kidding me with your analysis on how these situations play out. You know…
  • @orificeviolator9 Is this meant to be taken seriously? Not trolling. Yes there are games where where we get 5 two on zero breakaways and the goalie will make a great save on what most would consider a guaranteed goal or a player will miss the net but this is very random. For every game like that we have games where all the…
  • @WainGretSki it's actually kind of funny how many times I have not had a 3rd player on to play club and we queue for drop-in and find a 650 that plays better hockey then most 1000+ players in this game. It's such a dumb way to measure skill.
  • Great topic here. You guys are right. Back in the day nobody cared about any of this stuff and people were more likely to just play with anybody. Those days are gone. I made a thread about removing the search parameters for club so anyone could play anyone like back in the day. Now we just get great teams remaking clubs so…
  • I disagree with this. Not saying you are wrong for feeling how you feel but hear me out and what I am about to say might come across as ridiculous or extra sweaty and try hardy but that doesn't make it any less true. Although I do play 5's and 6's at times. For the past few years I have participated in high-level 3's play.…
  • @GustlKopitar Thanks for taking the time to put all this together. Even though this has been a hot topic on these forums EA said they wanted to hear more feedback about it and nothing speaks louder then in-game examples instead of people just complaining. I have even saw multiple defenseman come on these forums admit that…
  • Listen bud, I know it's just a game and I am not after any virtual respect. But if you go to the rankings and look at the club on top it is my club. We don't run from other high ranking teams and there are teams with similar records as us with 100 less points because of our strength of schedule and us not running from…
  • Certain developers such as DICE with battlefield have said we all play on the exact same servers and on XBOX the PS4 servers are just hidden basically. I am not saying the Overwatch developers didn't run into some issues trying to figure it out because they probably did. But it might depend on the game. I would think that…
  • Also the "close proximity pass" is broken as well allowing a player to basically guard two players on a 2 v 1. If a player is extremely close to the puck carrier they should not be eligible to intercept a pass. If it hits them okay but not an INT.
  • @rogers2487 he is talking about players who are in terrible position and not facing the puck. Nobody wants there to be a chance that a player in great position facing the puck doesn't intercept the puck. This is about the incredibly generous interceptions for players with bad positioning is actually causing more figure…
  • 100% but I am terrified of the change that will follow. This needs to be executed properly. I don't want it turning into a randomly don't grab the puck when in perfect defensive position. We need less "back turned to the puck interceptions" and I am okay with interceptions if perpendicular to the puck though. Should not…
  • I do wish crossplay was somehow added to this game. Would be great. I just assume it will never happen which is saddening. The populations need to be combined. We didn't play club for about 2 or 3 days because we couldn't find a game in the higher divisions. As far as people saying THREES and ONE's have hurt the game I…
  • He is correct...we are not saying this because we feel things have changed. We are saying this because we were logging in and it said on the screen "DOWNLOADING NEW TUNER"
