Any of you guys face some idiot named "Animal Steel" I think he had a 19 at the end of his gamertag, too. I was up 2-0, and he just lets go of the controller, and because this game is moronic, it's harder to get the puck from someone who literally isn't doing anything, than it is when they're trying to avoid you, so of course I end up taking a penalty. I score shorthanded because he's trash, and he starts playing keep away.

I don't play like a dick until the other person does, and when they start doing stuff like that, it's game on. So I finally get the puck back after like literally 3 minutes of him skating in circles/passing behind his own net (I was in trap mode at this point), I did the same thing. Played keepaway, and when he overcommitted, scored on a breakaway. Watched every second of the replay, did this for the rest of the game, ended up winning 7-0.

Except with 2 seconds left, the game starts looping, he pauses it, and a message comes up saying the game won't count. I just sent him a message saying "lol". Pretty sure he ip booted me or something, I've never in almost 300 games played, seen a game loop with 2 seconds left, only at the very beginning of the game. Anywhere to report this guy for tampering, other than through the Dashboard, which I'm pretty sure doesn't do anything at all?

He had all the cheese guys, Grabner, Havlat, Marleau, J-Bo, etc. Felt good, man.

What about skaters, which ones have you found out to be (well) worth the and which ones have been disappointments?

Skaters worth the money:

SOTW Jagr - I gave him captain card and he's absolutely a beast. Scores a ton, lays huge hits and speed is not a problem with captain card applied. And he Jaromir mf'ing Jagr, It's thrilling to see him dominate the ice once again.

Semin - My team got burned by opponents Semins toooo many times, and finally I got one myself too. And he's been great. Has probably the best wrister in the game aside from some of the SOTW's. He has speed and hands to compliment that wicked shot too. He goes for cheap right now so I definitely recommend him.

Filppula - had him for my second line center a long time, and he was really good at the job. Good all-around player, someone to consider if you're short on cash and in hunt for a quality player

Hemsky - another quality player for a very cheap price. He was great for me in '11 and ''12 and didn't disappoint me when I bought him again. The speed and especially the hands and there, and for a 1k you can pick a great secondary scoring forward.

Myers - now he's a beast. Surprisingly good speed, thunderous slapper, but it's his reach and hits you want him for. I mean I literally injure a player about every second game with him, and it's just too much fun to play with this wrecking ball

Burns - Great all-around defender, goes for surprisingly cheap considering he's 86 overall righty defender. Delivers on both sides of the rink, you simply can't go wrong with him.

HM's: Backstrom (skater), Landeskog, Getzlaf, SOTW Goligoski, Hanzal, S.Koivu

Skaters who didn't live up to the money:

SOTW Eberle - I had huge expectations for him given that my regular Eberle had exceeded really well in the few games I had played him. Turned out to be an absolute bust. Seemed slower than regular Eberle, and literally everybody ran over him. I dunno why but he fell every time when someone made even the slightest contact to him.

Parise - Like with SOTW Eberle, I had high hopes for him and placed him next to Koivu in hopes for some Wild magicthingy. That didn't happen, and I gave up with him after 10 games and lousy 1+1.

Karlsson - he was good offensively, but defensive side was lacking big time. I expect that my RD's are good all-around and Karlsson is obviously one dimensional. Maybe somebody can get better use of him, but I prefer all-around guys like Burns over him.

HM's: SOTW Selšnne, Iginla, Benn, Nash

So i got into the playoffs, came within a post of advancing to the pro tournament. i got stonewalled by a dude with a SUPER stacked team

Kurri, Gretzky, his offense wasn't the problem in fact i kept him relatively cold by only giving up 3 goals, it was his top defensive pairing that iced me (Myers/Chara, **** like that should be illegal XD)

After this i decided to re-reevaluate me team and pick out weaknesses:

If anyone is curious:

Perron/Backes/Wheeler
Clowe/Taveres/Purcell (Surprisingly good line)
Raymond/Bouchard/Setoguchi
Fleischmann/Weiss/Versteeg

Enstrom/Bogosian
Girardi/Staal
Gologoski/White (Gogo injured, Daley takes his place atm)

DiPetro (2 shutouts in 4 tournament games O_o)
Nabokov

I've already grown tired of Enstrom as he flat out sucks, never have i seen an OFD miss so many damn shots from the point, The rest however, have held up well

I think i might need to invest in one of those skyscraper defenseman since my offense seems to hold up well

Edit: If Hemsky is really going for that cheap im gonna buy him to replace Wheeler, that would be nasty down the right wing

Skaters that are well worth the pucks:
SOTW Mueller-Has an absolute wicked shot and is an all around good player that can be had for reasonably cheap.
SOTW Clutterbuck- Can be had for VERY cheap, and he is the ideal third/fourth liner. He hits everything that moves, is a good skater, and can chip in offensively pretty often. I have quite a few short handed goals with him.
Mike Richards-Comes at a price, but is an all around beast. I have him as my captain, and he is literally good at everything. Great at faceoffs.
Kevin Shattenkirk-Another cheap player that is good at everything. Very accurate shot.
Disappointments:
Alex Pietrangelo-He's my favorite player IRL so I desperately wanted him. I saved up the pucks and bought the first one I saw under 20k. Complete waste. The game definitely does not do him justice. His shot is okay, and he lays some big hits every once in a while, but he's slow and seems to get knocked down very easily. As much as it pained me, I had to get rid of him. He was just awful.
Erik Karlsson-When I sold Pietrangelo, I used the pucks and bought Karlsson thinking he would be the ideal PPQB, and provide some good outlet passes. He is good offensively, and I he had 9 points in the 14 games I played with him, so that's not too bad. However, on the defensive side of the puck, he's terrible in this game. He can't hit(which I guess is fair since he's a small player), his poke check should be a lot better than it actually is, and he got injured 3 times since I've owned him. I had to dump him too.
Marian Gaborik- This leads me to my all time disappointment. I got Gaborik in my Gamestop Pre Order pack and I was so excited. 72 games later, all of which have been spent on my first line and on the PP and he has 21 points. Even more disappointing is that out of those 21 points, only 7 are goals. He's fast, but I can't snipe with him at all. I get him on breakaways, and he hits the post, I get him in the slot, goalie snags it. It's so frustrating. For comparison's sake, I have Mike Richards as my 2nd line center and 2nd PP unit and he has 86 points in 81 games. I'm going to keep him on my team, but I might drop him down a line or two because I can't get anything going. Really disappointed.

Your may want to look into getting better chemistry on you lines.

Perron-Tavares-Purcell
Clowe-Backes-Wheeler

That would give your first two lines chemistry.

Two euro dman that I like:

Mattias Ekholm- currently playing in Milwaukee. Just overall a decent player. Since he's a euro, EA never gave him good sound nor body checking attributes even though he's like 6'4"

Another is Josef Hrabal, former Oilers prospect. He has a great slap shot considering how cheap he is. Got him in a pre-order free pack

Guess playing the Market does work.

Made a couple small profits:

Bought a Pitkanen for like 1,300, sold him for 1800

Bought and Erhoff for 2900, sold him for 3500

Ditch Enstrom and go for Kronwall. He's been great for me. If Bogo's a TWD, they'll have 99 chemistry. Also get rid of Raymond, what kind of a Bruins fan would employ a Canuck? lol

Also when playing the market, if you're only going to make like 500 pucks, don't even bother, you're only handcuffing yourself until you sell your item, handcuffing yourself from getting REAL steals and making big profits. Remember, there's a 5% tax on everything you sell.

^Other guys worth the pucks:

PA Parenteau - very slick puck handler. 87skt, 84sht, 87hnds and still 84 def - can be had close to 1k

Helm - He's going for 1.5 or less now and his speed opens up a lot of ice. Good shot release too.

Hamhuis - underated shutdown LD who can be found at 2k

Dan Girardi - I see him for 1k now and he was excellent in the defensive zone for. Nice cheap DFD compliment to a powerplay specialist. Every bit as good as Bogosian.

A little OT...why is FUT (Fifa) so much better and deeper than HUT? I guess both titles operate completely independent of each other?

Soccer is maybe my 12th favorite sport but I am loving FUT on Fifa13.

Played a few games and already love Lehtonen and Parros. Parros has just destroyed people with no remorse and no penatlies, and Lehtonen has been 2-0 with 2 shutouts for me. XD

Yes. There's your new #1 D-man. I'd recommend SOTW Suter, but you probably don't have the pucks for him. I'd still go and get Kronwall if I were you, though.

Just as I say that he let's in 4 goals, lol. Oh well, his Hasek let in 3 goals from me. He's still pretty good. I can see that bigger/taller goalies are better.

So i finished tweaking and decided to add a bit of a punch to my defense (I tried to look for Kronwall but he's quite out of my price range)

So this is what i ended up with instead:

Suter/Bogosian
Pronger/White
Giradi/Staal

I need to replace White and preferably Mason Raymond as he has done squat (26 GP, one measly goal) but i would need to do it cheaply

they say that every case gets looked at, but I really have my doubts. I would just report him on that, nothing more you can do.

Anyone every played someone named "Steve Ott x29" I believe his gamer tag was? He is the biggest idiot in the world. He just joins EASHL drop in games and tries to personify Steve Ott by just chirping everyone in the room and making them wait the full 3 minutes for the game to start. And he actually says he is going to kill people and goes pretty overboard. Then when the game starts he just head hunts til he gets a penalty then leaves

He had an account here for a little while but got banned, no surprise. Hes just a huge tool. Ive reported him before, and Im sure a million other people have too, yet he is still around

Looks like you could really use a powerplay Dman. Boyle or Shattenkirk would probably work well for you and neither would break the bank.

I still use Raymond on the 4th line - he's a great threat for me. I think it depends on how you play though. I play a puck possession style so his speed is extremely useful. Who have you paired him with? I've put him with Helm since the beginning and their speed complimented each other (and as well as Hemsky/Parenteau on the RW). He really needs other fast players since he doesn't have the hands or size to succeed consistently rushing on his own.

I had him paired with P.M Bouchard (89 skt) and Setoguchi (87 skt)

That line honestly does nothing, i switched it up and benched Bouchard and Raymond for Little and Ladd (had them in my collection) and changed Setoguchi to WPG. it's essentially a carbon copy of my Florida line (one fast-ish skater in FLAs case being Fleischmann, 2 decent skating guys to hog the puck and cause problems in the neutral zone in Versteeg and Weiss)

and the FLA line has easily been my second best line next to Backes, Perron and Wheeler

And i do have a PPQB in Goligoski, think i might swap him back out for Pronger since he's terrible outside of his reach on the poke check
