  • FYI regarding penalties. Played position lock again as Washington (LD) against Buffalo. After the first period, Buffalo had 4 power plays already. I didn't even bother finishing the rest of the game. So this was the 4th game in a row where the …
  • (Quote) And that is the issue like I said. I did hit the check button and nothing happened at all. It was if the game didn't even register I did it. It would be one thing if these flaws and bugs we mentioned happened once every few games. But t…
  • (Quote) But I did try to hit them. I'm using the hybrid controls. I'm hitting the same way I always have. I'm telling you I hit the button, and nothing happened, this is why the video looks like it does.
  • (Quote) The passing is an issue. This happens a lot when the player is leaving his own zone. The hitting is not incidental. I pressed on the "hustle" button and hit the checking button to lay the guy out. This wasn't an "oops&quo…
  • I know, you'll be surprised by this AI passing logic so please contain your excitement. Explain to me why the CPU passed the puck back into his own zone when he could have gone up ice or dumped it or anything else? This seems to happen every the C…
  • That's exactly what happened and continues to happen when I play and the goalie stick doesn't move or move enough to justify it. Especially since the puck seems to stay floating there for a bit before it moves.
  • You mean where the puck magically stops on the line? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5BnnRAfCDo Or the puck being soft lobbed to the goalie and suddenly ricochet quickly to the opposing team player for an open net? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=…
  • (Quote) I'm position locked so I'm on the ice 100% of the time. Another gameplay question for strategies: If I have the CPU control my strategies, why aren't they controlling the individual line strategies as well? Adjusting Overload, Crash the …
  • (Quote) As far as passing, as I've mentioned and posted a few videos of, the AI logic for passing seems to be worse this year. The AI passes the puck backwards quite too frequently. The logic behind the passing is questionable. Open lane to skat…
  • For penalties, yes, every game is this way. The CPU usually gets way more power plays and I'm lucky to get 2. It has been this way for awhile. It's my CPU teammates mostly committing those penalties, not me. How does position lock affect the sli…
  • This game is really getting under my skin. The AI passing is so questionable. In this one game I played tonight (position lock on LD), the AI again, makes bad passing decisions. This is the CPU team. WHY would he pass it BACK to the wing when he…
  • Come to think of it, I get a "can't connect to the servers" message a lot. I get it when I go into the upload clip mode and exit out. Upper right corner says I'm not connected anymore to the EA servers.
  • (Quote) I think that became the issue. There was no reason to make the game harder. Just make it more sim. When you say you made the game harder, you basically eliminated the sim aspect because now it was based on not letting the player win so e…
  • @EA_Aljo (Quote) I've posted this in these forums. But here is one example of a soft lobbed puck hitting the goalie, then defying physics and going the way of the open opposing player. This was slowed down, but it makes no sense and has happened …
  • (Quote) And there lies the problem. Every year there will be issues, of course. However, some issues are so blatant at release it's frustrating how they weren't caught in "testing". Also, some issues have plagued this series for years …
  • (Quote) Basically, that is what I said. Offline should be further along. Each year, online gets more additions and features while offline stays the same. Additions to franchise mode is great, but that's where it slows down for offline. For exam…
  • If you're talking about the other side defenseman taking over your position, I have experienced that the past few years. Basically, if you skate over (as RD), to the LD side, the LD comes to your side. If you skate back over to your RD side, the L…
  • EA definitely has to improve the offline experience. Honestly, it feels as if EA is trying to phase out us offline guys with the limited amount of offline features. Before 'online' was the thing, us offline guys for many, many years, helped carry …
  • Speaking of 3rd periods, can we have the option to turn off the real time last minute of play in the 3rd period? That last full minute adds about 5 minutes on to the game, which in turn, creates unrealistic stats and creates that constant 3rd perio…
  • (Quote) The direction of this franchise has taken a major turn for the worse over for a few years now. Look at all the basic requests for improvement that have been made, and look at what EA decided to give us. We asked for improved AI and we got…
