Phantom interference call where my guy gets knocked into the boards and goes into the box.

Gaborik out for 40 games on a hit away from the play having not touched the puck.

Richards gets pinned to the boards before a pass reaches him and no call for holding.

Basically the usual. This game is a joke this year.

Injuries and penalties. Trying to play the right way is ridiculous when even the AI goons it up.

Just so you know, I was only controlling during the phantom interference which I was initially pissed about because I thought it was on me. My AI did the other two, if I'm thinking of that pinning as happening behind the net.

Oh I wasn't blaming you, I'm blaming the game and the horrible way in which it's programmed.

Oh I didn't think you were blaming me, just venting frustration at the game. Just wanted to apologize for my AI ;)

On a side note I haven't had a major injury in quite some time, I'm pretty sure I'm on a 9 game winning streak since I got Briere back from his 50 game injury. I'm probably due for one any game now. My last big injury was Luke schenn for 23 games and he'll be back in 3 games.

I think that's what he was saying...that it's the way the AI plays that makes it so bad. For me, it's mind numbingly frustrating because the disparity between how the AI plays in vs games and how they play in club games is ridiculous. There was a noticeable difference last year, but now...in vs style games, the AI just lights people up, even away from the play. They'll skate full speed into the goalie, pushing him out of the net, and there's hardly ever any interference calls (goalie or regular).

But yet, in club games, they'll just stand there, no stick checking...no body checking, and just let people go by. There was a play a week or so ago where an opposing player had a 1 on 2 "scoring chance". Both d-men were back and in good position, and the guy goes right down the middle, gets past both of them, and beats the goalie. It doesn't get much more unrealistic than that.

Both styles of play are awful as they just ruin a fair, competitive game. To me, EA's really gone too far with it this year. Even in Madden, their AI programming reeks of douchebaggery. The AI will try to run up the score, if they're losing big in the 4th, they'll just keep airing it out, causing more and more turnovers. It's just bad strategy all the way around. It makes you start to think they don't even have a basic understanding of these sports. I really wish other companies would get back into making sports games again and that these exclusivity deals would be deemed illegal. These companies just have no motivation to make a good game anymore.

Man, Ovechkin is ridiculous. Destrovega just got a hat trick with him vs me to win 4-3, lots if action in the last period.

He now has 59 goals this season to lead the league. Erik Cole is second with 40.

Does anyone else have days where it seems like your team is sluggish, but the next they are fine? Just played some CPU games and St. Louis just felt slow however the last time I played they didn't.

The funny thing is when I used Washington in our last league, he only had 2 goals in like 19 games

Ok, so I know I complain about injuries a lot, but one thing you will rarely see me complain about is goalies being too good. Until now.

This just...its just...no...just...no. No.

No. No. No.



No.

Also, keep in mind. This is slowed to 15% via the game itself, then I slowed it down another 50% in a video editor before I uploaded it.

LOL...wtf is this??? "This year...goalies will be able to move their limbs independently!" Holy freaking crap! That's probably the most unnatural save I've seen. This basically proves that goalie glove reaction time is WAY too high. If he had just made the stick save, I'd say, "Ok, yeah...crazy save." But this shit just isn't even fair. This is going on EA's Facebook. I'd love to hear the explanation for this one.

EDIT - Oh and I freaking love that Michael Scott's "No!" outburst comes up as a related video at the end, hahaha :lol:

The only thing I've noticed is when I score a goal to take the lead or tie, if I win the next faceoff my guys seem to have more speed. I dont know if its just a "placebo effect" or if there is some sort of momentum builder EA implemented.
