    Please note these sliders are meant to for online gaming, with our roster and with our aidata.

    Regarding speed
    As some of you have noticed already, yes, speed increased drastically. Once you accept that reality you will realize see that it really cuts down your decision making time. When you have open ice, you have to take it. Better get your quality shots off quickly cause the gap between players narrows out fast. All these realistic and difficulty factors outweighs the old slow routine.

    Set plays are more difficult to pull off.
    Star players stand out a little more.
    Acceleration helps with poor AI, gets your defenders in a better position quickly.

    The lowered shot power cuts down slap shot injuries. They still happen, but alot less.

    Feel free to post comments. Nothing is set in stone.

    Here's what we got so far:
    Skating
    Game Speed 3
    Speed burst 2

    Hey.

    I haven't played those settings online yet, but as normal exhibition settings, I find them awful. Sorry.

    This speeded up game makes the game feel way more arcade style, which I don't like. Yes, reaction time is less, but that leads to more button smashing and false decision while doing it.

    I think that I'm a good sim style hockey player and catched myself doing forbidden stuff unintentionally, like open ice hits and such things.

    Also the poke is nearly ineffective and even the slowest wingers rushes down the wings with rare chance of checking them.

    Yes, it's faster, yes, it's less time to make a decision, but it feels complete hectic to me.

    I will tell you my thoughts again when I played an online game with this settings.

    Personally I have liked the old ones better that the new ones.

    Thanks for your attention.

    With a full tournament under your belts, how about these sliders?

    Game speed was lowered to 3 and you unanimously said it was an improvement.

    Let us know your thoughts, good and bad!

    Still pretty new to all this but after the the game speed was lowered to 3, i thought everything was perfect. Smooth gameplay, time to process a move, everything was great.

    Let me try the new preseason settings at 2 and then I'll tell you what I think. 3 might be the Goldilocks zone :)
