Pushing right thumb stick up on faceoff will tie people up... won't do it anymore.

I've messaged him so he knows whats going on but if anyone else sees Vancouver constantly tying people up off of faceoffs dont hesitate to let me know. In my eyes its just as much a "glitch" as the Price and Stockey moves and it will be handled accordingly.
For every faceoff theres a counter faceoff...depending on body positioning you can tell which way the Center will win his faceoff...unless the faceoff attribute of that player is a lot higher of ur player u can counter any faceoff

to counter the tie up, you gotta win it forehand..having better faceoffs helps obviously...or tie him back up and than its a battle of strength attribute

Toews is the best Faceoff man in the game. He's had the best Faceoff % in the NHL 2 years in a row by a good 5%.

When he gets tied up, regardless of his positioning, he loses. He went 1 for 7 on draws vs Vancouver. I don't mind losing faceoffs but getting slaughtered every time I play someone doing one specific move is nonsense. It's been going on for two seasons now and it's stopping tonight.

It's too overpowered and I'm banning it from my league. Already talked to Millw00d about it and he's agreed to stop. No other GM is allowed to do it.

Additional Bluth Company Rules: Effective Immediately

1) Franchise Player Rule:

There have been 27 Superstar caliber players moved in just two seasons in the Bluth Company. This is both highly unrealistic and removes the identity of many NHL teams. The Franchise Player Rule states that any trade involving a Franchise Player will only be approved by the Commissioner if I deem the value to be a significant enough of an overpayment to justify the trade.

Backup Goalie Rule:

Effective immediately, All teams are required to start their backup goalie atleast 10 Games in the regular season. EA didn't take goalie fatigue into the equation and as it is now, its extremely easy to have your goalie start 82 games without consequence. Goalies can be put in during double advances or be used in actual games.

Failure to do this will cost a GM a 2nd round pick in the next draft.

so we could start our back up for the 1st 10 games and then play our starter for the rest of them?

To be more realistic (though i wouldnt know how to monitor this) it should be to play your back up once every or every other block or something like that..

On another note.. how many blocks are there total in the season? if you know off hand.. so we could better schedule our backups playing time.

I know which one ur talking about Fuss, it's the one that freezes ur whole team and gives him an immediate breakaway.. It is extremely frustrating when it happens, and can be considered a glitch since it shouldn't lead to a breakaway everytime. However when I play I use diversity and I win face offs according to how my opponents attempt to win them. The tie up should be allowed if used with diversity and if not used to go on a breakaway immedietly. If he ties u up(hopefully not EVERY single time) and passes back to the defense I honestly feel its fair game! It's when a breakaway gets created from it that bothers me + it's HIGHLY unrealistic.

Lets just say on average there are 6 games in every block. 82/6=13.6

Including double advances there are atleast 13 blocks in a season.

Making sure every team starts their backup once every block would be a pain to monitor. Incredibly annoying for myself and for you guys. Yes, technically you can just have your goalie start the next 10 games of the season. I'm fine with that. its more realistic than a goalie getting 75+ starts every season.

This.. I ****ing hate that glitch face off.. I know that I brought it up before saying you cant defend against it and it was just discarded (by the person doing it) by saying it IS defendable.. I know who does it and I know when it's coming, so I also try to tie up on the faceoff when I know it's going to happen, and even when i lose it for some reason wont let me switch my player to a defender right away.. and then when it does I am no longer prepared for it and my defender is caught flatfooted. Annoying as hell.

Also people do this faceoff move, get a semi breakaway and do the backhand forehand deke to score.. it's a double whammy of unbearable gliches.

I dont know how anyone finds those plays any fun when it works every god damn time.

So to be clear we can still tie up and leave the puck for wingers to fight over right? It's just that weird one where you tie up but also somehow deke and your center gets a breakaway that is banned correct? I don't even know how to do the latter

I use the regular tie up every once in a while (not too often, but variety is the spice of life!)

the one I am thinking of is the tie up, pass to right to winger.. Winger blows right pass the defender.. Semi breakaway.. Deke and Score

I feel the exact same way. I don't even know how to tie it up to cause an automatic breakaway, yet I will use a tie-up on occasion to change up the game plan.

In my experience, this only ever happens at the center-ice faceoff circle, right?

So perhaps a reasonable compromise, at least on this point, would be to ban it entirely here, and then allow for tie-ups (with moderation) elsewhere on the ice?

Ya the breakaway is only caused when its a center ice faceoff!

Banned at center ice. Excessive use elsewhere is just as glitchy as the Stockey and Price goals and won't be tolerated.

Not a fan of the backup goalie needing 10 games. As a Devils fan I've seen back-ups play just 5 or 6 per season.

Not a huge problem for me though, Jonas Enroth as 84 overall is a great option regardless.

So a tie up is banned at center ice in any form? What if I tied up and passed to the defender?

Just Curious

Brodeur is an exception, but even he only had 77+ starts like three times in his long career.

Most of the time, 70 starts is a really full season for a starter. That's 12 games for the backup.

I think this should be allowed if its passed to the defender and used with diversity! There is a way to counter it, so its not glitchy in that sense... It's only glitchy in my eyes when a breakaway comes directly from it.

Just my opinion though!

It's still glitchy to tie up on every Faceoff, regardless of which of your players picks up the puck. It gives people an unfair advantage in puck possession right off the start. It's also very difficult to defend against when those who are doing it have been doing it for 2+ seasons in Bluth and are now VERY good at it.

Tie ups happen in real life, especially in north american hockey so its obviously a part of the game. International hockey has banned winning a Faceoff with your feet so it is being addressed somewhat in real life as well.
