It's a lot of work to edit them all, and you gotta keep up with who they are or you'll miss a few. They should just try to do a little research and do it right.
Before they updated it, in NHL 11 guys like RNH, Landeskog, Murphy, Couturier didn't even had the right playstyle. RNH was a sniper, Landeskog a playmaker, Murphy a defensive defensemen, Couturier a sniper.
It's true that it's difficult to keep up with them all (especially if you start editing prospects who are 2-3 years away from their draft year), but even then, you could just pump up the stats/potential of some random kid and at least make a couple actual blue chip prospects for each draft year....Rather than getting a kid who's 19yo, not NHL ready, and has B- potential in the top 5 of the draft.
It's what you call unsastainable profit of short term gains, long term losses. Lol, proof is in this thread with upset customers announcing they won't buy the game or something among those lines.
Anyway, like I said- the loss is for those who are 'into' this kind of stuff, because the truth is - it's a VERY shallow feature that is up there with informercials on TV for the uneducated.
How is EA going to lose money long term because of legends? This thread is no way representative of demographic that purchases the EA NHL series. Most NHL gamers are casual fans who like things like legends.
hold the right thumb stick East; at the puck drop, move it clockwise to South. That should help (I sucked at it too).
I find mixing it up helps. I try some pulling straight back (starting backand seems to work better than forehand), starting backhand and rotating up and away will do a stick lift then pull back, starting forehand and rotating up and away will tie up the guy and kick the puck back, and pushing left stick forward right stick back sometimes works just to tie up the guy and hope your wingers grab the loose puck. I'd say I'm hitting about 50%, if one method isn't working just try switching it up, I find the same thing isn't necessarily as successful game to game.
