You all need to hop off EA. They are the best game company in america and I'd love for someone to show me anything ANYTHING to dispute the fact the undeniable FACT that EA produces nothing but pure gold! As a bonus if some1 could find an article that disputes their status as a staple of American industry I'd give you an attaboy but you can't prove that because it doesn't exi- http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertco...america-again/ Oh....

Quote:
And to say that they’re winning a poll like this because of upset Madden fans or homophobia is ridiculous, and Consumerist’s response backed that up.

EA needs solutions, not excuses. They are not the worst company in America, nor are the evil, but their brand has been so tarnished by so many of these seemingly anti-consumer policies that they’re stuck in running joke status among fans and the press alike.
I don't even think this article mentions buggy games, 60$ roster updates, or the ME3 debacle

It is ridiculous for EA to win over BOA which legitamately can destroy lives and tank entire economies due to greed, corruption, negligence, incompetence and just general apathy. Lack of perspective there but EA is absolutely terrible and I'm glad they're getting embarassed. Now it's time for people to put their money where there mouth is especially when it comes to roster update sports games and start buying used only. SimCity's garbage always on policy was well known beforehand and dumb gamers supported this policy by buying off the shelves by the millions. Hard for me to blame EA when its customers are so stupid.

Looking to join an EASHL club on XBOX 360. I'll play anywhere really not fussed but I concentrate most on LW/C. I'm in the UK so any European team would be great, however an Eastern US team would also be fine by the time I've finished work and my own hockey its pretty late as it is so would still be on like 8/9pm ET. Gamertag is Kieran IOW

why the **** is it so hard for ea to get the online rosters somewhat right? Why they just can't hire a one guy who updates rosters twice a week according what they are on http://www.dailyfaceoff.com/ .

Be a gm is also unplayable without massive editing and player creating, still after that draft picks are wrong.

I don't know why they don't put out PC roster editor software every year; and add a teambuilder function to it and charge for it. Maybe $10 or $15. I would buy it.

In Be a GM, does setting the strategy matter while only doing simulations? Is it worth spending time managing my line strategies every time I make a line change?

If I want to create a player for a gm (Filip Forsberg, Jacob Trouba, etc) do you know any sites where I could find suggested attributes ratings and potentials?

Anybody experiencing frequent freezing issues as games end or is it just on my end?

So why the **** can i play one season of BAGM (12-13 season) with 5 min overtime and then shootout, yet in the next season and beyond it'll just be continuous OT?

Seems more like another guy cherry picking examples from multiple games to prove a point which was already in his head prior to developing the video.

Crappy game mechanics doesn't equate to ice tilt.

The "loose puck" from a poke check or hit going right to an opponent's stick is incredibly frustrating because of how often it happens. I've gotten so tired of knocking a puck away from a player, only for it to go straight to his teammate.

Also, I forgot to make a video of it, but I had a player go down and block a slap shot from the point during an online game, only to have the shooter fire the puck *through* my player's body. His stick blade and puck went right through my guy, as if he wasn't even there. And the worst part was he scored on that play, which shouldn't have even happened. Just general **** like that really turns me off this game. Granted, it wasn't as bad as the goal where Jagr scored while shooting backwards, but it's still BS.

I just played NHL 13 for the first time today. . . Is it just me, or is the gameplay awful? Pucks are glued to players' sticks, awful shots are let in by goalies after miraculous deflections a couple times per game, controls can be non-responsive. Shot blocking and pass blocking barely even work anymore, nor does the poke check. Is there any good way to play defense in this year's edition?

I'm honestly done with this game.

I tried playing a game, and the ****ing handicap/ice tilt **** was so obvious.

I scored first, on a penalty shot. They then score because they had a perfect double poke go into my zone. My defenceman passes it and it hits an imaginary wall. They then get the puck, somehow evade a diving player that WENT THROUGH HIS LEGS, and my goalie so happens to leave his 5 hole open.

I score next, on a crappy backhand that so happened to squeak through.

They're next goal, was bad. For some reason, 5 straight passes of mine were perfectly on their tape. They then shoot a harmless shot. My goalie is way off to the side to let it in.

EA, I will not be buying NHL 14. You really are the worst company. ****.

I don't think there's ice tilt in the game.

Everyne who isn't really great at the game seems to get frustrated when they have a bad streak and equate that to ice tilt. Also, the engine is outdated, so that's another reason for the supposed ice tilt

I like it when i get harder competition. That's why i enjoy the playoffs as the opponents always seems to be a little bit better than during the season.

Big losses is bound to happen even if you are really good at playing the game. I play on highest difficulty and probably win 9 out of 10 games against the opponents but sometimes you just go into a slump where nothing is working for you.

This game, is so bad.

I used to be the guy who said "if you don't like it don't play it"

EASHL is probably the best mode, and even then it's junk. I don't understand how a 5'11 guy can send my 6'4 forward flying, but when my 85+ aggressiveness, checking and strength forward checks, he can't hit anyone, but instead ends up on the ice after I go for a hit and make contact.

Spam RB=Defence. That's all it is, no skill involved.

Faceoffs are a joke. Looping ruins it, the Rock Paper Scissors mechanic blows.

AI is retarded beyond belief, but thats how it always is.

I agree with all of this besides the faceoffs. I'm somewhere around 80% or so at faceoffs in online VS, since I found a faceoffs method that seems to always work as long as I time it right.. It probably only works so often though, because my opponents don't know how to do it.

Finally someone else has these same problems as me!

Not to mention when me and my 2 buddies playing EASHL are working the puck down low in the zone cycling and getting a bunch of scoring chances, and the other team gets one rush up the ice and scores on a ******* wrist shot. Happens too much.
