Also another thing: How many times do you guys get dumped in front of the net, with no interference? But when I lightly tap a guy (again, not even making him move), I get dinged with 2 minutes.

I'm not excited for NHL 14. I am very pessimistic that anything will be improved.

I had that happen to me once, it was entertaining. Too bad it didn't actually influence the stats or the goalie would have had a killer save percentage.

So I've never really believed that good players get put on waivers, it doesn't happen in my game, never seen a guy over 81 or 82 overall get put on. Untill today, Patrice Bergeron (85 overall) gets put on waivers. I thought that's pretty stupid.

Untill I saw his stats. He had 7 points in 58 games, -24 and was on a seven million a season contract. Then it made sense.

I don't understand how some players beat me in a foot race by a ton when I have max speed and acceleration and 13 inch skates

I'm sick of idiot human goalies taking penalties by skating out of the net. Then i'm stuck sitting on the bench all game.

There very clearly is ice tilt.

For example, during a Q&A session on EA's forums one of the devs said there's no home ice advantage or anything else that gives one team an inherent advantage over another.

Well, along comes GM Connected mode several months later and we get a few seasons into our GM Connected league (30 human league) and I've been collecting stats and ... no surprise ... nearly every team has a better home record than away record. And I'm not just talking by a bit, I mean by a substantial amount.

Using my team as an example, over the course of 2 seasons in which I had played 142 games (22 games were simmed), I was 28 games over .500 at home and my road record was 21 games under .500. How do you explain a 49-game swing over the course of 2 seasons between home and away records? If there were no inherent advantage, as the dev said, the home and away records would be pretty even over the course of 2 seasons, would they not? And, like I said, it wasn't just me, it was nearly every team in the league ...

Tried changing Benn's type from sniper to power forward, but when I go to Be-a-GM mode he's still a sniper. Anyone know how to fix that? Probably seems petty, but it bothers me.

I have played multiple seasons and never seen this as the case.

Goalies have never been EA's strong suit; that's an area 2K always had the advantage, in my eyes, particularly with 2k6 on the Xbox/PS2, and 2k8 with the 360/PS3. But the goaltending is just laughable at times, you know, besides those awful backhand-forehand short-side deke goals they always let in.






The defensive AI isn't anything to write home about, either. Then again, this guy *does* have the Leafs logo and jerseys for his Ultimate Team



As a palette cleanser, here's a time when the game looks halfway decent. Wish the highlight reel replays were longer so you could see the actual cycling and not just this short segment.

This game just feels real buggy, and the trailer for 14 is extremely underwhelming.

Wait a season, and you'll see it change (I have no idea why it's this way).

Truth.



The puck didn't even hit anything, it just went backwards.

Wow, I have had it with this game. Time to sell this piece of **** on Amazon.

One last video for your viewing disgust: Backhanders are pathetic. As was said before a couple pages back, you're able to make a hundred ridiculous dekes with perfect control, yet somehow lose the puck when you try to shoot a backhand? What universe does EA Sports live in?

I remember playing as the goalie in a drop in game last week and was scored against. I thought I was in perfect position and as I saw the replay during intermission, the puck somehow went through my stomach.

Been there, done that, unfortunately. The most egregious example was an online game where I made a perfectly-timed dive to block a shot from the point, but the puck somehow made it through and scored. I was sure my player made the block because he was so close to the puck when the shot was taken, so I checked it out on the replay. Sure enough, the shooter's stick and the puck went through my player's outstretched body like he wasn't even there.

Like I said, EA Sports must live in some alternate universe when designing this game.

Wow what a joke, I was down 3-2 in game 7 of semi-finals so I intervened in the 3rd and got it up to 4-3 and quit with 0.2 seconds left, and somehow I ended up losing 5-4.
