Cycloniac's Authentic TeamSystems

A major part of what made the Revamped Rosters such a success was attention to detail. A conscientious effort was made in that regard; from ensuring that simulation stats were realistic by modifying player biases, to aesthetic adjustments such as player face and arena attendance edits.

In NHL 13, EA NHL introduced custom AI. This was a major innovation, but little attention was paid to it. In an effort to reflect the uniqueness and variety of all 30 NHL teams, I produced custom AI sets for every NHL team, as a part of the Revamped Team. Now, I will explicitly share them with all of you.

Using data collected by Blue Seat Blogs, team AI has been completely refined. These strategies were also influenced by offensive zone start percentages (to illustrate possession-based vs rush-based teams), and number of goals scored (to separate offensive teams, balanced teams, and defensive-minded teams).

If you appreciate my work, I am now gratefully accepting donations.

Any rough estimate on when all 30 teams strategies will be posted?

Nice work buddy. Can we put these in the next gen version of the game? I thought they took out custom AI.

We can't, unfortunately. Unless EA decides to patch custom AI back in.

*fingers crossed*

Re: Cycloniac's Authentic TeamSystems

If you're looking to update Pittsburgh in light of the coaching change, early on it looks like:
  • 2-3 forecheck with 1-3-1 neutral zone using a high forecheck bias would best capture what they're doing.
  • Aggressive offensive pressure (at least!) for sure. Defensive zone play doesn't stand out as too extreme either way, so maybe play it safe with Staggered/Normal.
  • Closest PP is Umbrella and PK is probably Large Box.
  • Johnston stresses puck possession, so unlike Bylsma's teams, the dump/carry bias should favor carry for all lines.

Re: Cycloniac's Authentic TeamSystems

Good insight on the pens, wouldn't the lines favor cycle more rather than shooting as well. Also would the d pinch more as well for all 3 d lines
