So Costco went off for a line change tonight in a club game.

It was hilarious. His player actually went off to the bench and got replaced by a CPU player for a good 2 minutes before the whistle went.

I'm thinking maybe this is a hint to come of NHL 13?

I thought you got booted after that penalty. Guess the coach wasn't too happy with you taking it, made you sit for a shift.

NHL 12 Player Creator. It's off by about 10 points (for the Overall Player Stat), but still accurate and good for looking at builds.

Unlocked 2 boost slots and at least 5+ boosts tonight with BAP. It's annoying, but in order to do it you gotta play the first 40 games. You can sim to the last 10 mins of the 3rd. Play it on rookie mode, score lots of points. When you've played 40 games, save your game on a different file than your main one for that player then sim to the end of the season. You'll get demoted all the way to the AHL 3rd line by the end of the season but it unlocks 1 boost slot and a bunch of boosts. After that, to open the Stick 3 slot you just need to play 1 BAP game with all 3 boost slots full in one of the equipment. You should have all your skate boost slots open now, so you can play that 1 BAP game and it'll unlock the Stick 3. Major pain in the butt, but now I've got a bunch of useful boosts open.

Wrist Acc +5
Wrist Power +5
Pass +5
Puck Cont + 3
Acc + 5
Agility + 5

Most of those opened tonight, along with a few others.

Also, found this bit of information about hosting and the effects it has in-game.

Quote:
Decided to post a bit of a clarification when it comes to the connection advantage one player will have when playing online. I've been gaming online since I was 8 years old (I'm 23 now) and have been somewhat of a gaming geek since then. One truth I've learned over these years is about the host advantage.

Basically, NHL 12 and most other online console games use a P2P connection (also known as client-side hosting). In the simplest terms this means that when you play a versus game (or any other game mode) one player is assigned to be the connection host. All the information and actions in the game are registered on that player's console. If you are not the host, every action you make is sent via the internet to the host's console; it applies those actions to the game and then sends back the reactions. Your console is sending millions of data packets to the host's console every second, and the host's console is sending data packets back to you as well.
The transfer of data from one console to another is what creates "lag". All actions need to be sent to the host's console to be applied to the current game. This means that the host has no lag; all the actions he makes are immediately registered on his console. His actions receive an immediate and accurate response while others are dependent on the internet connection to send and receive data.

The game picks a user to host without showing who it picked; which is why many people are completely unaware of a host advantage. It most likely picks the user with the most suitable connection to host; however this I am not certain of. The biggest three factors influencing host advantage are the speed of both users' connections, the reliability (making sure no data is lost) of both connections, and the distance between the two (or more) players.

The player with the host connection will always have the advantage; the size of that advantage depends on the three factors mentioned above. Sometimes a match-up can be pretty even given both players have great connections and live close to each other. Other times, one player will be severely crippled in how the game plays out.
Some symptoms of host advantage (assuming you're not the host):

  • Your team cannot hold onto the puck; you lose the puck when simply skating near an opponent
  • You cannot separate an opponent from the puck (poking, stick-lifting, hitting, etc); anytime a puck is separated it goes right back to the opponent
  • Your players feel sluggish and unresponsive
  • The opponent skates through your defense without any trouble
  • The game basically feels like it took a bribe from your opponent


The game that you see and play on your screen is a split-second behind what is actually going on. If you try and line up a check, you are probably lining up where your opponent was just under a second ago. The host, however, sees and plays the game in real-time. The more the advantage for the host, the further behind the opponent.

On the flip-side, you are most likely the host if you see your opponent suffering from these symptoms, but you seem to be dominating.

Here's a video showing what I'm talking about. I know, it's Call of Duty; however it uses the same connection (P2P) and shows the same type of lag experienced in NHL 12 (and any other P2P game).

Thoughts/comments/criticisms welcome!

--edit--
Forgot to mention that when you connect to EA servers, you are simply connecting to their database. The EA servers store all your statistics/records. After every game you'll notice it will upload the information to the EA servers; this allows your statistics to be online and visible 24/7 as long as the servers are running smoothly.

Woo got legend! Didn't even have to play the entire game because the team we faced twice ended up disconnecting halfway both times.

Stupid EA. I contacted them multiple times over the last few weeks about how my boosts didn't unlock, but in 45 more games I will have unlocked everything through EASHL anyway.

Captivate, when you're ready to join let me know. I turned off join requests for now because we were getting flooded by requests from random people with no connection to the boards.

sure. We don't get into any of the craziness like limiting roster size or tryouts or whatever. If you're a boards member and a Sharks fan, you're welcome to join. And then there's Cloned, but he had nowhere to go and is a sort of legacy member from a couple years ago.

I've got a busy week this week full of meetings and stuff for important projects, when I get back on Sunday from DJing a gig up in San Jose, I'll sign up! I'm really really green at NHL games, though, so I hope you all will graciously show me the ropes (so I can hang myself)
