AlTito's NHL 20 Sliders

Hey again everyone!

For those interested, here are the sliders I use right now in NHL 20. As always, I try to get a good mix of fun and realism, with a sloppy gameplay and a lot of loose pucks. I will be making tweaks while I continue playing and I will try to keep this post as updated as possible to reflect the changes I make.

According to your skill level, you can play on All-Star or Superstar difficulties. You should start with CPU Difficulty Adjustment at 0 and if it becomes too easy, you may increase it by a few clicks. You can play the game on 6 to 8 minutes periods, but I suggest you to play 8 minutes if you want to get more realistic stats.

Don't be afraid to adjust things to your liking or needs, these sliders are only there as a base. Have fun!

ADVICE: I highly suggest you to raise Puck Control before the beginning of a shootout. Also, if you find puck control to be an issue in general gameplay, try lowering the Skating Impact slider in the puck control section.

Re: AlTito's NHL 20 Sliders

AlTito, thanks for posting your NHL 20 Sliders!
I am always playing on your set of sliders and they are always from my point of view, the closest to realistic play on the boards and slopiness.

I have yesterday adjusted NHL 20 first with your exact set of NHL 19 Sliders, after playing standard FullSim of the out of the box settings by EA.

The gameplay has felt much better with your NHL 19 slider settings, only puck pickups felt a bit "edgy".

Now I played 2 games with my New York Islanders with your NHL 20 sliders adjusted and the edginess is gone. As far as I have seen you have changed Skating Impact - CPU/HUM from 20* to 40* and skating and puck pickups are smooth and also penalties look to be spot on for the first tests.
SoG and other stats looked realistic!
You do a great job! Thanks for sharing with us every year!
I will test further on and give you feedback.
Cheers.

Re: AlTito's NHL 20 Sliders

I like NHL 20 so far, gameplay is similar, but also with some differences:

Puck control is higher, so I had to increase Skating Impact like Rangi said in the post above.

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.

Re: AlTito's NHL 20 Sliders

Yes, I like NHL 20 so far, too.
The gameplay is similar like you said. I currently play also on AllStar and the hitting stats are much in favor of the AI, almost always outhit 21 - 4.

Puck Control and skating feel fine so far, we sure can still approve on.

My 10h trial is almost up with EA Access but I will continue to test, on what sliders you focus with hitting, AlTito? I may help find adjustments for our both liking.

Amazing sliders as always, Al. Been using your sliders for a couple years now and they've always made the game so much more enjoyable.

Re: AlTito's NHL 20 Sliders

Really appreciate the effort you guys make with the sliders.

What would you suggest sliderwise to make the game play a bit more like an 80's NHL game? Thinking about making my own 80's inspired rosters for the alumni teams.

Probably something like lower game speed, slower shots, worsen goalies, grittier play, reintroduction of the red line for 2 lines passes, no more hooking penalites and of course, more fights lol! Maybe not everything in this list is possible to get only by changing sliders, but some of them sure are.
