Cycloniac's 20-Minute NHL 20 Sliders

This set was the most difficult to create simply because NHL 20 is built for shorter periods. However, the developers have given us the tools to create a real-time, authentic set of sliders.
If you are used to the default, tape-to-tape style of NHL 20, this set will be much different. It is sloppier and the number of high-danger scoring chances is significantly fewer. You will see neutral zone play, board play, and battles for every loose puck. I am happy with my other sets, but this set is even more hardcore and realistic because of how much more variety you can see in games. If you want the most challenging, in-depth experience, this is the set for you.

Gameplay Sliders

GENERAL
Gameplay Version: v1.00
Game Style – Custom (Full Sim)
Attribute Effects : Max
Broken Stick Frequency : 75
Game Speed : 0
Fatigue Effect : CPU: 75 / Human: 75
Fatigue Recovery : CPU: 55 / Human: 55
Shifts will be between 40 and 60 seconds, just like real life. There is a significant statistical dropoff in hockey when players are fatigued. If you get hemmed into your own zone with tired players, you will pay the price. Manage your line changes carefully.
Here is some good reading on shift lengths:

Injury Occurrence : CPU: 40 / Human: 40
Raise this slider to 100 when simming in franchise for more realistic injury rates

SKATING
All of the skating sliders work in conjunction with the game speed slider, passing sliders and fatigue sliders to represent the pace and flow of the game.

Back Skating: 50
Hustle Type : Authentic
Puck Carrier Agility : 40
Puck Carrier Skating: 0
Player Acceleration : CPU: 50 / Human: 50
Skating Speed : CPU: 45 / Human: 45

SHOOTING
One Timer Accuracy : CPU: 20 / Human: 20
Shot Accuracy : CPU: 0 / Human: 0
Shot Power : CPU: 65 / Human: 65
Slap Shot Accuracy : CPU: 35 / Human: 35
Slap Shot Power : CPU: 45 / Human: 45
PASSING
The most noticeable change you may notice is in this area of the game. You will see fewer cleanly received passes. You will see hard passes get tipped and glance away more often. As a result, there are more battles for the puck, more mistakes and more broken plays.
Manual Passing - OFF
Pass Assist : 30
Min Pass Speed: 25
Max Pass Speed: Max
Saucer Pass Speed : 50
Pass Accuracy : CPU: 25 / Human: 25

Puck Speed Reception Effect : CPU: Max / Human: Max
Pickup Type Effect : CPU: 80 / Human: 80
Bouncing Puck Receptions : CPU: 25 / Human: 25

PUCK CONTROL
The puck is loose. That glued to the stick feeling simply isn’t there anymore. The best puck handlers will stand out more.
Incidental Contact Puck Loss : Stick , Legs and Body
Incidental Stick Contact Immunity : 0
Puck Control : CPU: 50 / Human: 50
Deking Impact : CPU: Max / Human: Max
Spin Deke Impact : 35 / Human: 35
Skating Impact : CPU: 80 / Human: 80

GOALIES
Goalie Cover Frequency : 25
Goalie Passing : 65 – Goalies still cover when under pressure, you will now see the occasional safe pass once in a while
Goalie Cross Crease Reaction Time : CPU: Max / Human: Max
Goalie Save Reaction Time : CPU: 25 / Human: 25
Goalie Deflection Reaction Time : CPU: 25 / Human: 25
Goalie Screen Effect : CPU: 75 / Human: 75
Goalie Screen Persistence : CPU: 45 / Human: 45

CHECKING
Holding onto the puck for extended periods of time is difficult. In conjunction with the passing and puck control sliders, these allow puck battles to really play out. Setting up in the zone should be a challenge.
Board Effect Non-Puck Carrier : 1
Board Effect Puck Carrier : 1
Hitting Assistance : 25
Stumble Threshold : Max
Fall and Stumble Fall Ease: 10
Aggression : CPU: 75 / Human: 75

Hey Cyc..look forward to trying these as I prefer 20 min periods if you can get realistic results. Are you getting realistic shot totals?

Yes, so far I am! It was no easy task.

In the past couple of games I've played, I've had shots 35 shots, and my opponent has had 35 and 22 shots.

I also made sure other counting stats are within realistic ranges, but I'm keeping an eye on it.

I have been in the market for 20 min sliders for years now. Much of what you got is what I have been setting my sliders to as well. I'm going to try yours and see where I'm going wrong with mine.

I think the single most important slider may be attribute effects. I've been testing these for a few weeks, and nothing I was doing (with AE at 5) could get shot totals down.

I think increasing that slider alone is key for a 20 minute set. In shorter period sets, having AE at 5 is fine, but I think the AE slider actually causes the other attribute effect modifers to have a greater effect.

Re: Cycloniac's 20-Minute NHL 20 Sliders

Any problems with game freezing? I put in new settings and now game freezes shortly after face-off. Happens in franchise and in play now.

Uodate: Cyc.. Just switched back to your non 20 min settings and no freeze.

Weird, I've never experienced a freeze

I have had the same issue since I applied the settings. I'm on PS4.
