Sliders really work, sometimes a combination of sliders making it work. It's not always easy, but it actually works pretty well.

Don't get me wrong, if you enjoy the game at default, then it's perfectly fine. But if you are always complaining about EA and NHL games, are playing offline, but don't want to mess with sliders, because it takes too much time, it's too difficult to get exactly the gameplay you want, are never totally satisfied or any other reasons, then it's actually a bit funny.
Absolutely. I hope my post wasn’t seen as a slight to the guys that do hard work on sliders and are kind enough to share. I’m personally just blaming myself. I simply don’t have the patience anymore. You and others do great work on the sliders and I used to be heavy into making sliders but it seems every update jacks up a great slider set and frustrates the hell out of me. The game is no doubt light year’s better with a good set of sliders. I’m just at a point (this series has beaten me down) that if I can’t find a way to just fire it up and play I need to walk away. I’m thinking there are a few guys like me too but that doesn’t mean many many more enjoy the work you guys do.

Re: Default sliders

Just like Madden, I'm a pretty much default guy lately myself.

Is it a bit on the arcade side on default, yes but I'm getting good results so far. Penalty slider needs to be on 4/4 as well as fighting but that's about it for me so far.

You default guys on 6, 7 or 8 minute periods? (or something different)

Re: Default sliders

I’m at the point already with just offline games, haven’t started a franchise yet to where I’m only changing the default sliders that get adjusted between competitive and simulation. Less is more it seems more than ever this year.

Re: Default sliders

As a slider maker myself, I fully support this OP. At the VERY least, it's where folks should start and play at least a month or so of the schedule before adjusting anything.

Never adjust based on "feel" or animations as I see a lot of slider sets doing. Adjust based on data that you're organically creating that first month.

And stay away from slider placebos like main menu settings impacting franchise.

Adjusting for animations is like putting gas in your car because it needs a car wash.
