Re: NHL 15 Patch 1.03 Available Now, Details Included

Online is sped up and the goalies are super human again from side to side now. I am struggling to score on real plays where I work to set up and pull my opponent out of position for a clear chance that should beat the goalie because I have the numbers in my favor... only to watch him warp across and save it without issue.

I also see a ton of 2 on 1 opportunity that is just worthless because it is such a chore getting that pass across, even early when the defender isn't int the passing lane. And if you are not rushing up the ice at full speed all of the time with the puck you will be caught from behind nearly every time.

They never seem to actually fix the problems. They just tune things to overcompensate for them. And that is not what we need most of the time. They really just don't understand at all and it is saddening.

How do you find the passing mechanics Big Will?

The more I play, the more I think this may be the biggest issue. Even with the pass speed slider maxed, it feels like any pass to a dangerous area is pointless to attempt.

Has there been any official word on why manual passing isnt in the game this year?

Your no Plante , Hall or Liut .

My only issue is Baa7serker mode aka hitting and momentum as the catalyst I mean EA tried to push this enforcer crap years ago and after what little good they did with Physics and gameplay for 15 is gone .

Who approves this stuff ? It must have been done for online gameplay as they always do this and it then wrecks offline play but its normally a tuner .

I dont mind the tweaking and crap but now when baa7serker mode starts its like your not even playing and everyone is Bobby Orr as needed so now its all about controlling the dreaded Tilted Ice , hit hit hit cement head hockey so lower your shot accuracy and raise your goalie sliders .

Well I figured as much and thats why I didnt post my Playoff sliders yet and I wont as this crap will have to be toned down again , really some wild stuff with EA NHL .
Cant play till tonight but I cant wait to better study this update wow pretty amazing how the game plays nothing like it was released as ?

I agree on passing being gimped as needed though they let me have one to get the 3-0 so almost like scripted as I had the momentum.

I find them to be awful, sadly. Passing is one of the most fun aspects in hockey, to me. I pride myself on my vision and creativeness, both in real life on the ice and in this NHL series, and this game doesn't let you replicate true passing at all.

I play 90% of my games online and cannot alter sliders, but even offline with adjustments it just isn't there this year. They (EA) haven't said much on anything, let alone passing issues. I am assuming it just wasn't possible with the new puck physics, or something, to get true manual passing into the game. And with everything else on their plate I would doubt that it gets addressed in NHL 15.

I accidentally pass back out of the attacking zone about 3 times a game now. Trying to hit my point man from the wall with a pass while I am in the attacking zone is a crap shoot. Cycling the puck is cumbersome. Going d-to-do is not awful, but could use work. And breaking out and using the boards for a bank pass is non existent in NHL 15 for next gen.

I can't see how it could be said that the gameplay is so great in this game when one of the major facets of that is pretty much broken in manual passing. I guess I hope that it is fixed for next year, but I am sure most people will settle for it just being back to the way it was in NHL 14. Eventually this list of "needs-to-be fixed" will heavily outweigh the "have time to address" or "are competently staffed" that is needed and the fear I have is that a good chunk of what plagues this game will not be touched or improved upon. I mean they are already playing catch-up with the game just to get it fully featured, that doesn't allow for a whole lot of refinement or new improvements. At some point you dig yourself too great a hole to climb out of, right?

A well known member on many hockey video forums back in the day do you know of him too ? He was a very nice guy but went crazy on what he called Beserker mode in hockey games so many changed it to Baa7serker mode when they spoke of it funniest rants you ever saw !

This patch didnt address passing. It still feels like pushing a bowling ball across the ice.

And I was hoping they'd add a team practice mode at some point (I need to practise one timers. Other than ones from the point, I cant seem to time them).
Next game was a 3-2 win and would have been a SO but the CPU had 6 PP's, so I gave up two goals on PK's.
