@LOUnatic1988 @RuxGT @twitforbrians @mxtayer @JrPens91 It’s not hard. Obviously people can play the game it doesn’t mean it’s enjoyable. People will always play the game and adjust to be as good as possible but it doesnt mean they’ll like it. The problem is the gameplay isn’t as smooth as previous years so it feels like a downgrade.
@EVHL_Official @Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy We’re playing a video game. Not hockey. If the video game doesn’t all the defense for you what’s the point in playing? So you want to be able to sit in the middle of a 2 on 1 and just let your player make the play? Stick to offline 😂
@Leveskii @Gabseh1 There is very little incidental contact. The issue is the bumps at the moment.
@EVHL_Official @Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy You had to overplay the pass or the puck carrier last year. Led to a nice skill gap defensively. If you had trouble with it you were just bad. Passing and puck receptions need a massive overhaul. Fully charged passes at 4 feet fine but there is a much larger issue than that.
@Gabseh1 I guess retirement won’t be too bad 😂
@Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy You’re looking at it as smarter plays. I’m looking at it as limiting creative plays. I agree forcing should’ve been nerfed but nobodies complaining about that. People are complaining that there 15 foot pass to an open guy is being bobbled or a touch pass can’t be made.
@Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy I have no problem with interceptions being better than last year. They were ok but not great. But last year it made you decide whether or not to take the pass or attack the puck. This year you can do both. Makes defending easier/reducing skill gap.
@Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy You don’t get penalized for mistakes you get penalized because your player has the hands of a 6 year old. There’s not an emphasis on making smart plays. There’s an emphasis on making the least risky play because the game won’t allow you to make a good play.
@ProMoeNHL This take is worse than you getting caught in 4K on GWC “time lord”
@Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy If you enjoy the game more power to you but the lack of creativity in this game is at an all time low.
@Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy Anything that makes defense easier does not increase skill gap. They nerfed the speed wingers with caps on speed traits this year which is fine but you can’t nerf offensive ability and buff defensive ability and think it’s good for the state of the game.
@Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy They increased defensive ability by making interceptions better, Bumping better and trips are almost non existent. Offensively they made passing and receiving passes worse. Increased defense. Decreased offense. RNG increased. Horrible for the game from a competitive standpoint.
@Burnsyx95 @TheOohwayy It has nothing to do with adapting to the game. Players will adapt and use what works. The issue is the game just feels bad to play. Maybe with more abilities unlocked it feels better or something but the current state of the game does not reward quick passing and team play.
@mxtayer I haven’t even tried to pass I just spam dumps. The game is boring and it’s like we’re playing bumper cars
@RuxGT It’s almost as if they could allow people to choose what sliders/tuner they want to play on and appease both sides. Especially in private matches
