If someone messages you or invites you, SEND THEM BACK A MESSAGE, WHETHER YOU'RE GOING TO PLAY THEM OR NOT. THIS IS COMMON COURTESY.

If someone asks you to play, then they're going to sit around until they know if they're playing or not, or think that you're ignoring them.

If you leave your xbox on in-game, then CHECK TO SEE IF PEOPLE MESSAGE YOU. It isn't difficult to walk over to your xbox, and push one button to pull up the guide and check for messages. If you don't have the time to look at a single message and type out "I can't play right now", then you don't have the time for a 2-day sim period league. If you're temporarily indisposed, then set yourself as away.

I've been hearing a lot of complaints about this lately and many of you may have seen a couple of posts on it. Don't make me have to start booting people because they're too lazy to type out one sentence.

Good trade for both SJS and TB.

I didn't plan on getting rid of him to be honest. I was just asked what it would take to get him off my hands, and thats what I wanted.

Buffalo is on to play tonight. Won't be home tomorrow, work 8 hours and then real life hockey.

Of course, this only makes matters worse when the servers decided to go on break.

yep 99% of players are flop shooting, poke spamming, cookie cutter exploiters with no sense of sportsmanship, skill, and/or interesting gameplay. But i digress... come on turd, drop out my a-noose.

No locking. If all someone is doing is going to the slot, then get there first and hit them. If you don't stop one strategy, then one strategy is all they need to use.

its not a strategy its an exploit, but i can play that game too just thought we were trying to push a real hockey atmosphere, and not do the same thing every time we came down the ice.

the thing about those wrists shots that go in everytime is that if in real life a player was able to be in the slot looking directly at the goal with no one in front of him, most likely he will take the wrist shot and probably beat the goalie.

the only thing is that rarely happens cuz every one is usually covered, or at least the player with the puck in the slot does not have a clear shot at the goal. be it blocks, stick lifts, or checks.

the only problem in game is that players are all over the place, u constantly switch from player to player and pull them out of position. everyone including myself does it. this leaves the open slots.

so when i play people who only know how to do that shot, they might get 1 or 2 but then i realize its the only tactic they have and i only have to focus on stopping the player with the puck from getting a clear shot at the goal.

it sucks when they get the first or second off but it becomes pretty clear pretty quickly and you just have to adjust how u play.

zetter put it best.

i can't believe we're still discussing this. When will people realize this is a video game. I would love if every game played like a real hockey game, but until the the video games get to a real-life virtual reality type level, real hockey and EA hockey will significantly different.

I've tried not using any "exploits" and just playing straight real-life-style hockey,.. and guess what ill score 1 or 2 goals if im lucky and lose.

The bottom line is the top players know how and when to use these "exploits" or have excellent vision.

But tuffleshuffle has provided the best explanation ive seen to date: it all comes down to defense. that will separate the one-trick-poniers from the actually good players, and prevent the mass majority of these "exploit-glitches" every continues to bi*tch about.
