Not saying that folks can't hate on something they have bought, by all means, have at it, but if you keep doing it are you really doing yourself any favors?

I am not saying to give up on a game, but maybe take a year off or two years off and see if it improved enough for you, fixed the things you had issues with, etc
Nobody is really hating on the game because of glitches or them not fixing things. I loved the NhL games the last few years.

Most of us are ďpissedĒ because of the things removed without any reasoning or even a modicum of logic behind it.

Also, a lot of us are angry at the lack of transparency, and the flat out shifty, seedy, and downright deceiving advertising of this game before release. Implying that certain features have been ďupgradedĒ in the game, without even the slightest mention of them being scaled back or in some cases flat out removed.

I always try and be constructive in these forums. I comment on this forum even though I do not own this version of the game, because for one I played the trial, and two NHL was my favorite sports title over the last 3 years even though hockey is not my #1 sport. I want to see if there is improvements throughout the year that may make me want to buy this years version, and also participate in discussions with other forum members.

To be honest a lot of people are pissed this year, and justifiably so. The way EA tried to sale the game this year is down right disgusting. Iím not going to sit here and act like this game is great, because it is isnít. Even if the gameplay is better it is a scaled back version of last years game feature wise, and literal downgrade from what we have gotten in the past.

If that comes of as being negative just to be negative then I am sorry. But I just donít have a lot of positive things to say about this years game. But I still would like to participate in the discussion and give my two cents.

Well hey I don't disagree with anything you said, I just know that as someone who has generalized anxiety disorder that I keep in mind that I cannot control a lot of things but I can control my reaction to them.

So should you speak up if something in a game really bothers you? Heck yea!

However, you should also not let yourself get caught up in obsessing on it or just using the game as some sort of proxy about other issues, game related or not.

If something really bothers me I'd email or contact in some fashion the game makers rather than only posting it here.

Re: NHL 23 Trial Available Now For EA Play Subscribers

To give an example, one thing I hate about NHL series by EA is the AI constantly going after the puck, even on powerplays where teams generally sit back and defend.

I asked someone in the forum who had the game early about this and they said that was still the case.

I don't like the fact that this is the case but I am not going to let it ruin my fun.

Heck I don't think I even emailed or tweeted to EA about it, so I guess it's not really a deal breaker for me or I would have done that.

The penaltykilling issue can be fixed by changing team strategies. The 1-2-1 is the default for ALL teams and that has one free guy always pressing the puck carrier.

Try passive box or even diamond, and they will play more passively. Again this depends on the teams real life strategies. If they do employ the 1-2-1. You have to keep the puck moving.

Also game speed affects this, if you use out of the box game speed, you wont have time to breathe on the PP against the 1-2-1.

I have my game speed at 0/6 and skating speed at low 40s. ( default is 50/100).

Out of the box, this game to me is unplayable. I think the Dev team thinks with sliders, they have given enough tools to adjust for offline gaming. And for NHL 23, sliders alone could fix most gameplay issues, except the cpu ai dmen offensive and shooting behavior.

I play on All-Star difficulty.

Iím balancing that right now. Iím getting called a ton, as I re-learn how and when to be aggressive with stick lifts and pokes. But Iím not seeing many others, so Iíve been bumping it up.

I try to stick as close to out of the box as possible, but I do think they have some smart sliders in the game.

One thing I noticed right away was that Human strategy adjustment default is three this year. Itís always launched at zero. Since I donít make many on the fly adjustments anymore, Iíve been playing with it set at 3 or 4 for years.

There was a time I loved changing them up myself, but Iíve grown tired of it. It eliminates the main thing you see people complain about, that the CPU doesnít change tactics.

If you change tactics, the CPU will. If you donít, then CPU will stick with the same strategy, unless it needs to catch-up or protect a lead, which leaves you at an even greater disadvantage, because the CPU adjusted to game conditions, while you didnít.

I do the same play with it on three. I canít be bothered in game doing that I just want to play. Iíll let the ďcoachĒ handle that. I do the same with NBA game too.
