This kind of thing somewhat needs to be fixed.

I understand peoples complaints against the online aspect of the game because its been broken for a long time with this series.

As for the offline game, I think this is the best one they put out yet. Im finding it so much fun to play a season against the AI and am having challenging games game in, game out.

The skating is amazing and the AI is the most improved Ive seen out of any game in the entire series.

Just tried playing an OVP match since my first match during the release date, and the match already had trouble synching as soon as the puck dropped.

EDIT: I tried playing another match and it again had trouble synching... Really EA? 4 times... still not synching properly...

Creating young players like McDavid, Drouin, Jones, etc due to EA's laziness is a pain in the ***.

You have to make them 18+, move them to an AHL team in order to list them as "Free agents", then move them back to their junior team and fix their age once again. Otherwise, even undrafted players will be listed as Anaheim's property.

I spent over 20 hours trying to update CHL rosters, create 16 year olds, move other players from team to team, only to find out all those players are listed as Anaheim property. So I would have to do the above procedure to fix things. Screw that. I'm not playing another NHL 13 game until a real roster update.

TBH, I'm thinking about trading my game in.

Thanks, but the only options I have under the Gameplay Settings are "Skill Level" and "Game Style." Do I need to do some kind of online update?

It's actually a scheme by Anaheim to get all the good players. Such a rotten scheme.

They won't say when they'll be doing any updates.
If you ask them about any missing player, whether it be AHL or CHL, they claim that they have to wait until they play a game in their league.
When you tell them that the player has already played plenty of games, they claim that the player needs to sign an agreement to be in the game, something that I believe they claimed was no longer necessary a few years ago.
They've been proven to be liars regarding their ability to add players to game, however, and it's all just an act to cover up for the fact that they're lazy.

Tom Kuhnhackl was traded mid-season to the IceDogs last year.

.. he was still on Windsor in the game.

There's another way, when creating a player, make him 18+, (so that he could have been Drafted 2012 or earlier) then press RT/LT (R2/L2 on ps3), to change the page to equipment settings or something else, an then change back to the player info and then you can change his Team to None, and then just make him his real age.

I've just had enough of this **** game.

What has happened to the goalies? They were great in NHL12, but now they are making desperation saves every second and a lousy mistake later on. Let's not forget to mention also the goalie interference which have somehow disappeared from the game.

Speaking of interference, I'm really sick of my AI-players taking ridicilous penalty calls. Interference and roughing calls when I have the puck are happening every god damn game. Often when I have the puck in the offensive zone or in the last minutes of the 3rd period.

These hits from behind. What the hell is up with that? More often than not, I get the feeling that I play NHL on a Nintendo Wii...

Roster updates...(or the lack of). Perhaps some license issues, but its simply not acceptable to have several UFAs in their old NHL-clubs.

The opponent-CPU tends to score similar goals all the time. The puck usually gets glued to the top left/right side of the net.

The skating engine is a good innovation, no doubt about that, but it really favorises the fast and agile players waaaay too much. As an example Fowler and Cogliano were the scoring leaders on my offline-mode GM game.

Yesterday while I was playing I had a delayed penalty call upcoming, however I never touched the puck for the play to stop. Instead the team who was getting the power play touched it and the puck ended up in their net and the play stopped, however I wasn't given credit for a goal. So how is that possible?

Just had this online game. I was Edmonton and he was LA (of course). He gets a 3-0 lead by the end of the 1st. I was leading in shots 8-5. I tie it up by the end of the 2nd. Shots are 19-10. I start dominating and take shot after shot after shot and can't score. Puck goes down the ice, he takes a super slow backhand shot/pass from the far wide end of the circle and it goes in. He makes me watch the entire replay sequence. ****ing dick. I dominate again and finally score at the end of the period. Shots are 29-12 and it's tied 4-4. Overtime starts and he gets a phantom pp. I kill the PP by dominating him short handed. Under a minute left in OT he skated down the middle of the ice. I'm right there next to him trying to check him (of course it's not working) but I did nudge him. He falls, gets a penalty shot. He makes me watch the entire replay sequence. You know what happens next. Final shots 37-14 for me. Score 5-4 for him.

Worst part is, this **** is actually quite typical. Happens really often.

Yup. That's why everyone in HUT just fills their roster with the fastest skaters and blow right past your defensemen.

Because the computer never attacks the puck carrier. They just sit back and backskate until you shoot or get too close to them and then they take the puck from you.
