Thx man. Iíll try it.

Skating is different, good so far, but still testing it.

I love new goalies animations when they freeze the puck, it's so much more realistic, as they can cover it in a lot of new maners now. Rebound control is also better.

One timers are also way better with new animations too. The reaching tip-in one timer close to the net is great.

Puck pickups are better too, will have to continue monitoring it though, because I don't want the puck to be glued magnetically to sticks either.

I'm really testing checking, bumps and collisions right now, because it was toned down compared to last year. Poke checks are another concern for me.

So far so good, I will continue to test it today with a few friends coming home to play the game.
Al,
I really love the gameplay with your sliders using the latest tuner! I am now 4 games into my franchise and the skating and puck battles feel realistic on the boards, in the neutral zone and in front of the goal. I play currently on 5 min periods on PRO and the AI pressures, which is a good sign!
Hitting is way better now, but still needs a lot of aggressive play from myself to put numbers of hits up. The AI hits me "obnoxious" from time to time, ;-)
But gameplay feels the best I had since years! Shots are crisp and looking finally good animated. Backhanders have become way more effective and also stick handling through zone entries! Goalie saves like you mentioned are realistic and looking way better in NHL 20 with the new animations. Goalies react great and all the goals I scored felt different and very satisfying like a surprise in a real game, where you also not know if or when your team scores! Great work so far, man! :-)

Not everything is perfect, but I hope you also find the fun again in playing offline games and franchise mode... let us know, what you think of your playing impressions with the silders. I actually have a blast with NHL 20 at the moment!

Re: AlTito's NHL 20 Sliders

Hey guys, good to know that you like it!

I'm liking it too, but I'm still messing a bit with sliders right now, trying to get some fine-tuning here and there.

One thing I'm looking at is the speed, as I find it a little bit fast. I'm not really talking about game speed itself, but more about players skating. So, I'm trying different things with Skating Speed and Player Acceleration sliders. Just by lowering Acceleration by 5, I'm seeing some good results so far. I will have to play more games, but will probably make at least one adjustment for the Skating section, still not sure exactly what though.

My other main focus is the Checking section. I'm messing mostly with Stumble Threshold, Incidental Contact Effect and Size Effect. Also still looking at Poke Checking Accuracy. Nothing major, but sometimes just a little tweaking by 5-10 clicks and we find the sweet spot.

Other than that, I find the gameplay pretty good for now.

I will keep you updated.

Al,
I have poked a little bit around with the speed of the game and especially skating. On AllStar, the game is vastly too fast for my liking and the AI tends to be a super-passer again like in prior years. So I switched to PRO with 5 min periods and exactly our current slider settings, where the speed and skating are perfect for me. My record in franchise mode is currently 3-2-2 with the Isles and CPU is strong and good opponent.

Iím glad you mentioned the skating speed, I thought it was just me. I tried kicking the game speed down to a 1 but it felt like they were moving in molasses, I like the idea of knocking down the skating speed and acceleration, I went to a 43 on both Hum and CPU and it got better
