Re: NHL 16 Penalties?

One of the issues with the user being fouled in sports games is the nature of the user vs cpu interaction.

We have all been programmed through playing these games to AVOID the cpu.

Anybody with half a brain would realize if I "run away" from the cpu they can't take the ball or puck from me.

But it's the opposite in this NHL game. You have to allow contact with the CPU but allow it in the correct way for a penalty to be called.

For example. if you have come down the left wing and come to a stop and the CPU comes out to you, if you turn away but don't immediately skate away from them they will keep on you from the back and if you just protect while they try to come through you they will slash and hook you at times.

The key is to draw them towards you but not allow them to get a full head of steam. It's a too delicate balance because as was posted above, the CPU is way too eager to check you over playing solid D. If they put out a gameplay tuner that made the CPU choose check 20% of the time instead of 85% of the time that would tone it down and open it up for more cpu penalties.

Particularly if the extra 65% probability was carved into stick lift and poke check behavior.

So know that I don't care for the arcade hockey game, and I also realize this forum is for the Xbox One (though I'm strongly considering purchasing one for myself, as I got our oldest son one last year). But my point:

I turned down the game speed slider to ONE. I then turned up the CPU acceleration slider to MAX, and then turned the human acceleration slider to 5 (one click below max). I had a total of 8 penalties called (8 min. periods). I've seen a high sticking double minor. I have seen the cpu get a 5 minute game misconduct. And there has been a variety.

What I THINK is happening is that with the slower speed the cpu and AI controlled players have to make quicker decisions, and since they aren't skating at warp speed, those decisions can't be made as quickly. Also, for anyone who thinks the skaters are stuck in the sand, with the highest acceleration settings, the players actually move at a really nice skating speed.

I've played the EA NHL series for many years (I still have NHL 2002 for the original xbox in my collection). I'm not saying that I've found the solution, and I don't know how this translates to the Xbox One - but wanted to throw out something I've seen. I'm getting a nice variety and nice amount of penalties - so you guys might give that a go and see what you think.
Exactly and The Bird is the word ! and like I said every action causes a reaction so you balanced it out !

Pretty interesting I would love to try this out but right now the PS4 (not sure about Xbox one) has a bug that when you lower game speed from default the players become virtual strobe lights causing the gamer to nearly have a seizure...lol. Hopefully they patch this quick so we can give it a whirl.

I believe EA said they were just over writing 1.00 so as not to have a million tuners. So it's still going to say 1.00 as it just replaced the old one.

Hmmm, first game with the update and the CPU had 6 powerplays and I had 4. I'll take that.

You may be right on this. I tried it out and 2 power plays in the first 6 minutes but the skipping bug made me have to bail.
