I'll probably create a few players for the legend team. The only annoying thing was that as the team had a roster limit you couldn't remove the current NHL players into the free agent list as you'd have two Sidney Crosby's etc which would just ruin the game so is there another way of removing them if they've kept current players in there?
Yes there is another way of removing them. All you have to do is send them to some random Swedish Elite league team, and your set.
Just played the Demo last night, wanted to give my 2 cents...
Overall I give it a B+
I think the new skating is great and perfectly realistic. True Broadcast is awesome!! I love the speed boosts and momentum swings, but I'm having a lot of trouble scoring. 2 on 1's I feel are very hard to execute a pass and one-time it. Power Plays I'm having trouble setting up using the vision control feature. (Is there a trick to this, by the way?) Faceoffs are nearly impossible for me right now, what is the secret to winning one!!
Really looking forward to the GM connected, but I still don't understand how the scheduling will work. Do you just play whatever GM is online at that time? Do you have to always make your scheduled games?
The schedule is split up into blocks the size of the block is set by the commish. You can play any game in that block at ANY time until the commish advances to the next block.
EA really needs to fix the pull back wrist shot in this game. You don't even have to curl it to score. Just walk into the slot, pull it back, and wrist it high glove side. It's a goal 90% of the time. You don't even have to be close to the net either.
I don't understand these comments like "who cares", "get over it." There are some parts of the game people do actually care about and are dissapointed with the changes made. For me, the addition of the legends last year was a huge reason I played the game, specifically HUT. When I'm opening packs that's what I'm hoping for the most, is to get a legends card. I don't think it will be the same this year now that they are only leaving three of the players and adding only five with Wickenheiser and the other female. I want to see as many legends as they can add to each game and I want to see actual legends, like Messier, Sakic, Forsberg, Hull, Orr, Leetch, etc.. I don't think that's too much to ask for from EA.
You know every year I ***** and moan about the game being disappointing, and I threaten to not buy it. This year I told myself, with the new "facelift" they were giving, if I can't put last year's game (however stale it was), beside this demo (let's face it, they aren't going to change that much before retail version), and come away saying I enjoyed playing it better I'm seriously not going to buy it.
I'll see you in Sept. '13 EA, where you'll just have made refinements of the same game, and hopefully it's fun to play then, I'll pull my wallet back out.
81 seems about what I thought she would be at. But your right people are still going to hate and be jealous. I know for one that my sisters are really pumped that Hayley is in the game so at least somebody is happy.
do people actually not buy this game because the little tiny things? i mean i for one dont really like the new overlay very much especially with the controller ALWAYS vibrating. but ea could probably put a disc shaped piece of **** into a case and I would buy it. true hockey fan i guess
