NHL 21 Pro Sliders (for Mums and Dads)

NHL 19 was perfect on All Star and provided a perfect level of challenge for me but since NHL 20 (and 21) All Star has altered to an AI opponent full of robots. With myself having children I want something that will challenge me but not need incredible levels of concentration (ignoring everyone in the room for 30 mins +) just to stay in the game.

Moving to Pro seemed the solution but it was always too easy. There's almost a need for another level in between. I like to have decent stats that look realistic so I've come up with something that will suit players who want something between Pro and All Star and want games to be around 30 minutes in real time.

- All sliders are the same for Human/CPU so you will only see one value
- I'm only listing changes so if something isn't listed leave it on default


Settings:

Game Style: Custom (I rename my saved style NHL21)
Post Whistle Rules: Authentic
Fighting: 2/2
Injuries: On
Penalties: 4/4
Period Length: 5 minutes
Difficulty: Pro
Penalty Time Scaling: 0/6
Coincidental Scaling: 0/6

I've kept time scaling low as you will se an accurate number of powerplays per game.




General

Game Speed: 0/6
Injury Occurrence: 60/100

Brings game speed down to something more realistic. Injuries is something I'm monitoring. I want to see realistic amounts.

Cover Frequency: 50/100
Goalie Cross Crease Reaction: 60/100
Goalie Save Reaction Time: 60/100
Goalie Deflection Reaction: 60/100
Goalie Screen Effect: 60/100
Goalie Screen Persistence: 60/100

Makes goalies a little better than 'Pro' and reduces goals slightly.



Penalties

CPU Penalties: Previous 90/100
CPU Teammate: 90/100
Tripping: 90/100
Slashing: 90/100
Elbowing: 90/100
High Sticking: 90/100
Cross Checking: 90/100
Boarding: 90/100
Charging: 90/100
Delay of Game: 90/100
Holding: 90/100
Hooking: 90/100
Interference: 90/100

You should see anywhere between 1-7 powerplays per game giving realistic totals compared to AI stats. Shorter time scaling reduces the amount of goals scored on the PP to realistic levels.


AI

AI Learning: 6/6
CPU Difficulty Adjustment: 6/6
CPU Adjustment Strategy: 6/6
User Adjustment Strategy: 6/6

Bumps up Pro to make it a challenge. Strategy up to 6 letting the AI change tactics/pull goalie etc for you in game.



Let me know what you think!

Thanks! I've tried other sliders before but I thought I'd try and find what I liked myself and then share it with others. Tbh I'm keeping the gameplay as close to default as I can. All I'm looking for is stats that are realistic and competitive gameplay without feeling like the AI is cheating me.

Let me know what you think.

I've gone with the Rangers. Started 4-2-3.

Results so far:

2-1 OTL
5-2 L
2-1 OTL
5-3 W
6-5 OTW
3-2 L
2-1 OTW
5-2 W
4-3 OTL

Averaging 3.00 goals per game and 3.00 goals against, pretty middle of the pack. My only slight issue is no shutouts yet. I need a bigger sample size before I look at that.

Powerplays are 22 PP with 4 goals at 18.2% Other teams range from 46-14 PP so far.

PK is at 25 TSH at 92% kill rate. League ranges from 49-18 penalty kills so far.

It's looking like I'm still slightly on the low side for penalties but I need a bigger sample size. Will consider moving all penalties up to 95.

I have seen delay of game (first time since NHL19) and quite a few 5 on 3, 4 on 3 and 4 on 4.

Finally got to try these out, been busy over here recently. Played first game of franchise with my Flyers against the Vegas Knights.

I won 5-4, nail biter, good stats. I really enjoyed the gameplay.

Off to another game soon.
