The patch is live. I noticed a lot more penalties being called. Tripping is getting called a lot more on those stumbles. Hitting looks like it was botched though. Apparently turning down hits seems to have made them more effective and bigger. It also seems like the range is bigger. Poke checks also seem to be more effective even when protecting the puck.

Besides penalties, everything seems to be a step backwards.

EA needs to put the app on Android. it would make it so much easier for myself and others that have Android on our phones.

Looks like I'm playing LA at 5:30CST and Nashville at 7:30CST tonight. So everyone else that I sent a message to I'm free after LA and any time before the game against Nashville. Tomorrow I should be free most of the day.

Why would they turn down hitting? Hitting needed to be turned up...at least for the players capable of knocking people down. Their explanation of accidentally taking into account the hitting power of the person being hit was hilarious. The reason people poke check spammed before is because both stick lifts and hitting were mostly broken (unless you were straight up head hunting).

I'm also fine with poke checking being more effective. It really shouldn't be that difficult to knock the puck off of somebody's stick. Maybe a perfect stab right on the puck is one thing, but if you're pestering somebody side by side, and tangling your stick with theirs, they shouldn't be dangling and twirling like a ballerina. As a lot of people have stated on the EA forums..."Don't like poke checks? Don't skate directly into someone's stick."

The lack of penalties was where these things became issues. If I'm head hunting and smash you face first into the glass...call me for it (hell, suspend me for it. I'd love to see it). If I'm chasing you from behind, trying to poke through your legs (or dive at your feet like a real idiot), make it an easy trip and call me for it. If I'm sticklifting you before the puck even gets to you, make it more likely to cause a penalty than if I had timed it to when the puck was actually on your stick. EA's idea that they can teach people how to play hockey by just making shit not work is infuriating. Everything should work. There should just be consequences for overly aggressive playstyles.

I've contacted a couple of my opponents, but I haven't received a message from anyone. Sendme, we do have a game. I can play after 6-6:30 P.M. Eastern. Here's my list of remaining opponents:

Anaheim (x3!)
Philadelphia
St. Louis
Minnesota

And just so you're aware, Minnesota is not set to CPU play.


Just sent you a pm.

Anyone trying to play me, I know I said I'd be available today but I now will not be until 5 pm EST tomorrow.

Just played Matt Young and I'm glad I finally had a game with no lag at all. Game ended up being 5-3 St. Louis. I will even admit my first two goals were bullshit and I don't even know how I got them. The one had to be decided if it was kicked in or not. How Quick let them in I don't know buy he did. I'm just glad Halak didn't decide to venture out of the crease to the halfway point in the zone this time. It was a good game outside of the bullshit programming from EA. Some of my shots should have never went in and Backes steps out of the penalty box and somehow gets another penalty call for interference. I couldn't find the replay of it because it some how does not exist, but it seems like the door to the penalty box hit one of the players from LA or Backes stepped out in front of him. I'm sure their is no way in hell that would happen in a real game.

Good games with Phoenix and St. Louis tonight. Rinne was pretty strong in both. I've got Minnesota and Chicago left. Minnesota and I were supposed to play last night, but something came up and he hasn't gotten back to me since. If either of you guys are able to play tomorrow, I can play between 7 PM EST and 10 PM EST if you give me a time. I can't be on my Xbox that entire time, but I can get on if we have a time set up in advance. Just let me know.

good game against Twick tonight, lost 3-2 in OT when EA struck again as Seguin, in front of the net, gets poke checked even though the stick never actually touches the puck...he gets on a breakaway and scores easily.

Yeah, it'll have to be tomorrow. Like I said, I can't do late nights during the week. 10 PM EST is as late as the boss (wife) will give me.

Yeah, new spring loaded physics. Several hits in the game where players ended up going in the opposite direction they were hit. Funniest one was a play in the third when the game was pretty much decided so we started trying out dekes and a Tampa player headbutted Malkin during a jump deke and sent him flying across the ice.

Hey guys, sorry I have been off the grid lately, I was pulling double shifts for the last ten days and haven't had a lot of time to even read the thread from work. last time I was on was ten pages ago, so I have some catching up to do on my reading. On the good side of my life I am proud to announce that I am double dipping on Internet situation and I have the new provider coming in on Thursday to instal it. With two providers and too much $$$ going out I SHOULD never go down ever again *prays* I'm hoping to be back on the ice very soon.

Play Fair, Game Hard!

Maybe they will get him involved in marketing, probably will, but Wong maintaining ownership. (I think Jay-Z actually owns 0.00015% of the Nets yet he has full control outside of the roster it seems)

Good game with sendme last night, and Flyersfan contacted me, so we're playing today. Still haven't heard anything from Minnesota. I wanted to get at least 1 game in with Shady (Ducks) of our 3 scheduled, but he didn't respond to my message even though he was on.

Minnesota still doesn't have vs. CPU enabled.

Yeah, if I don't hear anything from Minnesota before this evening, I'll be temporarily booting him from the league so people can play the CPU. As I said, I was supposed to play him on Monday, but he messaged me to cancel, saying that his availability was "up in the air", but that he should be able to play Wednesday. He was supposed to get back to me, but hasn't. Whoever else needs to play him, I hope you can play tonight. I should have him booted no later than 7 PM EST.

#1463 twick87

what are we to do if we haven't heard from our opponents yet? are we allowed to play the cpu if it's the last night for games?

Yeah, if you've tried to contact them and they just haven't responded to you, they don't have much room to complain. On the day of the deadline, playing the CPU is fair game in that instance.

But I read it that he won't even have internet back until tomorrow, so I think that pretty much answers it.
