2K10 ~ Better Defensive Play & Positioning

Having looked at both global attribute changes and slider/strategies changes, my conclusion is that thankfully, the attribute changes don't matter as much.

If there is one key slider that seems to make them play better (not perfect) positioning and pursuit is "defensive aggressiveness". Placing this on "0" seemed to be the ultimate key. The other salient ones are a matter of choice, but I'll list here what I think play into this most prominently:

Skating Speed ........ 59
Speed Burst Length.. 75
Acceleration ..............3
User Speed Burst .......9
CPU Speed Burst ......10
Stick Lift Success ......45 (both)
Pass Interceptions......90 (both)
Poke Check Freq. ......60 (both)
Defense Aggress. .......0 (both)


Strategies:

With Defensive Aggression to "0", now I think you can switch back to "Cautioned" for all of the even strength lines. I do "Aggressive" for PP lines and "Cautioned" for PK4 and "Stay Back" for PK3".

Dump & Chase: Very High for all lines

Fore Check: I would keep to 1-1-3 or 1-4

PK: moveable box for both

**You'd need to switch teams and set these for the CPU opponent as well.
Keep in mind, I do my house rules as well, where amongst other things, I am not constantly switching to player closest to puck. In fact, you'd want to try to control a forward so you can see the effects on your cpu teammates on defense as well.


Give them a try and see what you think.

Experimenting more and more with these. Taking it into a season game and noticing that even though there are still some flaws with the Dmen, they are turning much more quickly to face the oncoming action. They are not chasing behind the goal in tandems either from what I can tell. Find myself pausing a lot and checking what they are doing both ways.
