Good games tonight guys. Started out well and got the winning streak up to 10 to get the accomplishment. A few tough losses to end the night. Didn't help that for the last few games I was starting to get a migraine.

Gotta love that EA has somehow managed to screw up the record book yet again this year. Doesn't seem to be tracking stats very well.

Yeah, started to lose it a bit in the end. Plus, Im not sure if its party chat or what but people have been cutting out a lot. I know my mic works since I use it for work.

Yeah, totally started to fall asleep in the last game.

My mic is getting old, so could be that.

So, after seeing South Park from last night, hopefully more of you will understand why I've had my player name as Honey Booboo for the last few months (dating back to NHL 12). What a great episode.

I know we tossed this idea around for a bit, but until the connection issues get worked out, how about we do an OTP GM Connected team?

I have reclaimed Nhl 12.


Now, Gary just has to get it and we can go back to a game where things actually work (too good...lol) from time to time. It's still crazy thinking of having "always goals" as being a good thing. Maybe it's just because EA went too far in the other direction with 13. But when you outsmart the defense and have an obvious scoring situation, it should result in a goal most of the time. 12 was a little ridiculous with people living off of one timers, passes through traffic, and goalies that bite on simple dekes. But having those things NEVER work in 13 almost seems worse. And for the most part, the AI defense is just as bad. They still get caught flat footed and give up breakaways. It's just now the goalie is so good he stops most of them. It's amazing that EA can't figure out it's giving up the breakaway to begin with that is the problem. Making the goalie a god doesn't really fix anything.

If we execute a breakout properly, and the defense doesn't get back or rotate properly to cover, and it gives us a 2 on 0 with the goalie...that SHOULD be an easy goal. Allowing teams that play bad defense to just be bailed out by a superhuman goalie just ruins the game. It's so frustrating that it seems like EA can only program on complete opposite ends of the spectrum. Just give us middle of the road AI and middle of the road goalies...and let human ability make the difference. That's all it takes.

I know we tossed this idea around for a bit, but until the connection issues get worked out, how about we do an OTP GM Connected team?


I'd be up for it. We'd probably want to do random rosters, so we wouldn't just be stuck with one specific team though, no? It would be fun to see how many seasons we could get through that way...assuming playing the CPU doesn't get boring.

I can't even remember... Are random rosters even possible in GM mode?

Name: Tuner 1.05
Date: 10/12/2012
Notes:
All Modes

  • Increased goalie ability to stop slower shots from distance.


EASHL Only

  • Goalies ability to move laterally and stop one-timers toned down.*
  • AI Skating attributes in EASHL increased slightly to keep up with User player progression.

* There will still be amazing saves, however, there is now a greater range in how well the goalie may read the play which on average will yield better offensive results on good passing plays than it was in the past.

Hmm...that's interesting if it actually works like they're saying it does. I worry that the "improved AI skating" will translate to "chasing you down from behind with even more ease" though. If it keeps them from being caught flat footed at the blue line, that would be great. But I'm not holding my breath.
