Me too... why can't we have the option to pick which tuner we want? Seems like a simple solution to me!!!

Re: NHL 16 Tuner Update For September 28

I just played a game against the Sharks, me as the Rangers.


Sharks took 5 penalties
1 Charging
2 Tripping
2 Hooking


Rangers took 2 penalties
2 Hooking


I'm enjoying the game again but still enjoyed the game a bit more pre Sept 28/30 Tuner. I saw more variety of penalties in that version and I feel like the stoppage of plays were better. I'm no longer seeing the CPU go offside, Ice the puck, or have the puck leave the rink nearly enough now.

Come to mention it, in the 3 games I played today, I don't remember the computer ever dumping the puck in the zone once...what a joke this tuner bs is.

Just watched the cpu play each other and the cpu will now try to deke through three players instead of dumping the puck into the zone....I def noticed the cpu did it before these tuners because I remarked to my brother it was nice to see the cpu actually use some real strategies like dump and chase....this game is driving me crazy right now.

I don't like what they did with the tuner revision. AI was much better, and now it's just buffoonery out there.

Actually had it happen to me without going into an online game

I agree 100%. When I first played it after they removed the Tripping festival I thought it was good, but after a handful of games I'm realizing there is so much now missing. In fact someone else mentioned it and I agree. It now feels and plays just like NHL15. The game was near perfect before the September 28/30 tuner and I find it odd that all the things done in that tuner were not things I had seen people complaining about. Before that tuner NHL16 was well on its way to being the game we all wanted. Not perfect but many things were noticeable that were not in previous releases, like but not limited to....
Slightly Better Board Play
Slightly Better CPU defense
Slightly Better (Not Perfect) CPU teammate defense and AI
CPU Dump and chase
CPU offsides
CPU Icing puck
Pucks out of play
All these things are gone, Goalies are worse, and the overall feel of the game took a step backward. Very disappointed

Re: NHL 16 Tuner Update For September 28

Just played another full game and numerous times I swarmed the cpu at the blue line trying to get them to dump it and all they did was skate away and then pass it to another teammate and then that teammate would skate away repeat over and over again until I finally took the puck away....its a shame what this tuner has done to the game...absolute disgrace, they might as well have just sold us NHL hitz the way the cpu has no strategy anymore
