It's a little stupid if you're not playing 6's and you run into known glitchers though..

GM Connected is going to be fun, if EA figures out a decent interface. That's asking for a lot though.

Or worse, what if the other team is wearing fat jerseys? Oh, the humanity.

Whatever, though. Just gotta learn to stop the glitches. I'll put up with glitchers if it means getting to actually play some games...

EA doesn't even know what a decent interface is.

So I've been playing the NHL games for a couple years now. Only online in verses and never bothered to look into this.. I just tried it out for the first time in some drop in games and Im wondering.. Am I wasting my time? I like using LW and Im a pass first player.. but the teams I've been put with are terrible. No one else passes, or plays D and the goalies never make a save.. Is it just luck of the draw or do you basically have to be with a club to have any fun with this?

I have about 300 club games played but over 2000 drop-in games played as well and I can share a few insights.

A) Drop-in is essentially there for trying out tweaks in your build , levelling up in the early stages of the game or playing a game when friends aren't online. Expect the talent to be mediocre at best with a couple "talented" sniper/cherry-picker/hogger type of players that get excited by the notion of dominating newbies. Sometimes if you play later at night you'll end up with better calibre players as most North Americans that play at night tend to be more into the game then casual gamers (it's a trend I've noticed). It can be fun sometimes but it can also be the worst blend of terrible hockey sense and just lack of any ability to produce something meaningful or that isn't just some sad "troll" attempt (i.e : Goalies letting terrible goals and leaving once it's too late to do anything or the classic childish reaction to not getting your preferred position the player goes and tries to score on his own goalie or ends up trying to play your position , removing all joy from the game).

B) Club games can be quite fun and depending on the skill level , can also be very competitive and realistic. If you reach a certain elite level you will come up to teams
that play a "system" , the strategies vary from cherry-picking to abusing the glitches
in the game (Youtube videos that show players which scenarios will always render a goal (this is technically cheating but I have yet to hear of someone being punished
for glitching)).
When joining a club make sure to check out stats online by visiting EA Sports World website to see if they have decent players and how
active they are (this is very important). The season restarts at the start of every month and the playoffs happen during the last 4 days of every month the winner
gets bragging rights and a on ice writing and banner lifting ceremony for the following season.

Calibre break down :
Amateur division has a mix of players with no experience to max 1ppg..
Pro Division will have teams that are good but inactive or players that are
borderline good 1-2ppg.
Elite Division will have people that are either really talented/play too much/use the above techniques to reach their statistical goals. It can vary from 2 ppg all the way
to 5-5.5ppg at the top of the ladder.

I should also mention that there are different type of player types you can pick and each can be customized/tweaked in order to match the way you play.
Plenty of people will emphasize different attributes they find important but this IMO varies by experience and what feels right for you.
I can tell you right now that usually most forwards prefer to use the 2 way forward or Playmaker build.
I've also heard of certain top level players using the grinder and yielding very nice results (3-4ppg) (I have yet to try this 99 strength 99 speed = win?).

Hope this helps as I have also just recently go into this orginally played only be a GM (or versus) for the last few years and just got into EASHL in late 2011.
Pm me if you have any questions , I'll do my best to fill you in.

They aren't stressing the backwards skating they are stressing the ability to stop and instantly cross with a 45 degree angle an ability that you can maybe try to mimic but that is no where near as fluid as what they are showing.

They keep repeating the ability to skate backwards at anytime

I very rarely go for hits, but I can just see the forwards skating backwards and me not being able to anything about it. I probably won't be able to hit them to knock them off the puck and won't be able to poke them either.

I'll wait and see, but it doesn't look too good for d-men lol! We'll all get rammered and coned haha!
