All builds appear to be gimped this year. So far, I don't think it's possible to have higher than 90 in anything for any build.

There is also a huge framerate issue right now online. The game is basically unplayable at times due to choppiness. And it seems like everyone on PS3 is having the same problem.

Not fair. With NHL13 shipping to me day of release, and already playing CS:GO and Diablo 3... Too many games and too little time.. I guess the lockout will let me catch up on all my gaming needs

78 is the highest you can get it without boosts. You can get it 87 with a +9. I heard this from a developer on the EA forums.

Somebody post the unlock requirements for boosts please. Slots, +5s, and +3s are all that matter.

If I can't play yet, at least let me imagine playing in my imagination.

I thought they had said that the max includes boosts?

You'll have to bug Skittlez about that. He's been BAPing like crazy.

So apparently that framerate issue is being experienced by the majority of OTP players right now.

It's gamebreaking for EASHL, and EA is desparately trying to find out the cause of the problem.

Crap optimization, same as last year?

You'd think they'd playtest the game a few times before releasing it.


Also as a side-topic, dibs on Zero or Gunzerker when we do our first run of Blands 2.

Just the fact that Zero has a sword instantly makes him a boss.

I couldn't find the post, but he used an example of a sniper. They can get their shot power to the high 80s without boosts and to the mid 90s with boosts. Try it out once you unlock some boosts.

There doesn't really seem to be a hard-mode (Berzerker) class anymore, so I'm fine with any of the remaining three.

Looks practically the same as last year. I think I'll just play EASHL to unlock everything, and do the 200 goals in season mode and maybe the 3 points in 4 consecutive games in BAP.

Faceoffs maxed at 87 for TWF. I believe the defensive awareness maxes out at 86 too.

Sniper I think maxes out at 78 for defensive awareness.

Quite frankly this is going to be interesting because for once we'll be forced to have completely balanced builds, assuming legend is still 2500 XP.

This is FAR worse than anything in the last 3 years.

The game literally slows down to a crawl and nobody can make any plays.

I should also mention one new feature that is probably gamebreaking as well. You can check other players and interfere with them without any penalty just by skating into them (as long as you don't use RS). Incidental contact results in a "checking" animation and joystick rumble. This is already being exploited in OTP, naturally.

EA really likes Demers. He's an 80 overall with 4 star potential.

Passing capped at 83 or 84 for OFD, puck control similar cap.

Also, they fixed the framerate issue, thank Toews.

This game is really good when you have players who know how to play. It's generally low scoring, and feels like hockey in the sense that you really have to work for your goals.

Of course, this is with everyone in rookie/pro cards right now, so things will probably change once everyone gets their legends.

But right now, playing defense is fantastic. Poke check is really really good, and the risk/reward of the momentum system is great.

Yeah, I noticed that in the demo. I like it. It makes the game feel a bit more realistic since skaters do actually run into each other (instead of acting like same-charge magnets). We could be like the Detroit Red Wings and run a bunch of picks.

I kinda wish they'd change up the whole board play magnetism thing, but I guess as a D, it helps me more than it hurts.
