Pro-tip: EASHL isn't meant to be played with CPU players
And if you have bots on your team, just sayin the other team is dealing with the same disadvantage as you.

Problem is, I find 1 good human goalie out of every 15 or 20.

I just posted that for anyone who may be having trouble. But my explanation probably wasn't very helpful.

On a side note, this patch has made Online versus and Online HUT games literally unplayable for me.

I can't get past the faceoff loop glitch. EA better fix this crap. Even shooting the puck into the bench quickly or starting a fight does not get you away from the looping. It's ridiculous. At least I can still play EASHL...

As a goalie, i got rammed in TWICE in the same game which resulted into two goals and my team lost 3-2. This is ridiculous.

Does anyone feel like they can be creative in this game? In my option passing is a pile of junk. I'm feeling like I might switch back to 12. I think this is the worse NHL game I've played. I'm having no fun what so ever with it.

Thing is, in drop in games almost everybody is terrible. Well ~90% of players in drop in are. This doesn't change for goalies, but a terrible goalie gets noticed more than a terrible skater. Play club and that can be avoided.

Completely disagree. I think they made defense a little harder than they should have, but I've been enjoying the game more since the patch.

Yes, I feel like I can be creative in this game. With the left trigger you can do some pretty cool stuff. Passing is fine.

I guess I'm just ticked that they 180'd on pokechecking vs hitting. My whole defense was based on the fact that its really hard to knock a guy off the puck unless you time the hit just right. I was all about cutting off passing lanes, watching back door passes, generally playing a really safe defensive game. Now, pokechecking is extremely underpowered in comparison, which is fine (it was ridiculous before), but it results in penalties crazy often. Like almost as bad as pressing A in my experience so far. And hitting is arcadey. I sent Willie Mitchell absolutely flying with Selanne tonight, and Selanne had no momentum or power, it was just a nudge hit and Mitchell went spilling out on the ice. Makes no sense at all. The game does seem "smoother", but at what expense? Cycling the puck is crazy easy now. My opponent and I traded insane shifts all game. My lines would be absolutely dead because I literally had the puck for half periods at a time. I couldn't change because I had unending amounts of scoring chances. Doesn't seem any better or more realistic to me, at all, so far.

Yeah, because shaking backwards is so cool. Passing is clunky.

Its harder to score now and goalies are leaping to the other side of the net to stop sure goals

Not skating backwards, but the pivots you can do with it. Can completely fool dmen.
You're probably just a bad passer. They made it harder than it was in 12 and thats not a bad thing

Yeah, played another 5 games just now. Went 4-1, and had 0 fun. Passing isn't just "harder", it often makes no sense. I make perfect, soft passes right to a winger in the offensive zone or while we are gaining the zone, they bobble it and lose it. I pass a hard one through a mess of players, and its like the puck has a magnet to the wingers stick, goes right to the guy and stays with him. There is no logic to the game anymore. The game I lost, I think the guy was using new glitches/manipulations, because he was doing really hard passes (while on his backhand) in the corner (sort of) of my offensive zone, and scoring far side right along the ice. Maybe those aren't new? But regardless, it was nothing like hockey, had no flow to the game, every other defensive effort is a penalty, pokechecking is less powerful, but makes the puck flop all over the ice, etc. Doesn't make any sense

The game is okay but the penalties need to be fixed! Using 1.06.

I put the penalties for both Human and CPU to the max. Way too much was called, almost every time I touched someone was either interference or roughing.

I find that a little less than max is a good setting for penalties but in game it is way unbalanced to the favour of CPU.

Example. in my BaGM with Coyotes I check a guy who has the puck (from behind yes) with Doan and get a game misconduct. Well a few minutes later Cammalleri, on my team, gets the exact same treatment! And nothing is called.

Well I guess that is quite realistic after all, but only if it would happen once or twice. I seem to get called (interference, or roughing) for just finishing my effin checks. While the CPU can do almost anything to me as long as I have the puck.

Human vs Human games are fun though, gotta admit. It is not a perfect game of the shelves but with both roster and slider tweaking it is atleast okay. The last NHL I owned was 09.

After playing a few games in the last day, Im convinced the AI is worse than before. Breaking out of my own zone is a task sometimes as centers and wingers seem to stand around more than ever. Maybe it's just me.

The CPU can still do almost anything to you when you don't have the puck. It's ridiculous.

I have that same problem in my HUT even on full out attack. I thought it was my chemistry so I bought change team cards and my top 3 lines all have 99 chemistry but it's still terrible.

I assume I'll figure it out but this is the first time Im really complaining about the game play itself. They needed to tighten things up, not confuse issues even more. I honestly have never really had a problem with faceoffs until yesterday. I went down to PRO against the computer and still was about 25%. That doesnt even bother me so much but here's two issues that Im finding ridiculous as well as the breakouts.

First, lets say you shoot wide or the goaltender leaves a rebound out in the corner. My players are not releasing (from in front of the net) until well after the play is already determined. Almost as if they're stuck in the air. They're not even tied up half the time.

Second, the passing just turned into complete atom levels. It's taking the crispness and flow away from the game. Hockey is a game of flow where you can actually reverse the puck behind your net and there's a 90% chance your defensive partner will accept that pass while moving. Or better yet, you can make a couple passes on odd man advantages without the puck missing your player by ten feet.

Honestly, I think they just turned down the AI levels on player and turned up the AI level for the CPU. I dont understand programming or any of that but this patch may have fixed some things, but it's absolutely effecting other items in a negative way.

4. Make the hitting more balanced inbetween the com and user
5. Make the goalies more balanced inbetween the com and user
6. Fix the race to the puck so that if u get there first you will actually get the puck not the com

And i would like them to add in the ability for be a gm for set lines.
Also probably my number 3 pet peeve about this game is that your players cannot pick up the puck to save their life. It's like the puck is a marble or someting.
