    I finally played this game last night, and it is an absolute cluster when two good teams play each other because of the pokes.

    Not even sure if it is the strength of the poke check that is so bad compared to the lack of aiming necessary and EA's ability to completely ignore body position for puck protection.

    I personally like the poke checking and defensive stick. It's nice being in good positioning and not having ea fuck me over by letting sticks go through sticks only to see a forward player call themselves good. In 17 if you dumped it into the zone alot of people would be upset because it was all about a puck possession game. Now dumping and chasing is sometimes smarter than the pretty arcade play of weaving all day through perfectly positioned defense. Haven't had a huge issue with agility as a dman but the few games I played on forward it was really annoying to turn back towards our net when their was a turnover.

    pretty spot on, the goalie animation is freakin ridiculous this year. Love airing out my armpit sweat on a 1mph dump at me. Luckily haven't gotten screwed on it yet, but where the hell did this come from. the only other tweak goalie wise that needs to be sped up is post to post animation when not in butterfly. It still has the sticky feel to it and a lag on movement. Speed going post to post in butterfly is much improved.

    Someone who's always been shit at defense loves how overpowered the poking is. Weird.

    my main question is, where does this shit even come from? almost 10 years of eashl and I've never seen some of these goalie animations that exist now. what is so hard about taking anything that worked the previous year, and just MAKING IT BETTER? Even last year, where the fuck did that stupid uncontrollable 'bunny-hop' goalie animation come from? Its just classic EA year after year - they fix something to break something to fix something - if they never broke anything, they'd never have anything to fix, thus they'd never have any new features. Seriously, who tests this shit? No one? NEW FEATURE IN NHL 18: GOALIES THAT DONT BUNNY-HOP. WOW I CANT BELIEVE IT EA ACTUALLY LISTENED TO US!!!!!!11!1!!!1!!

    The only fun ive had so far is Hut other than that 6s are completely aids. 3s are not bad because you can actually create some offense. They need new gamechangers. What the fuck is a gamechangers job to sit there and lie and say the game is good lol. EA needs a someone to tell them the truth and what they need to do in order to expand the NHL franchise.

    I like that dumping it in will have to be a more used strategy, but the lack of agility and aceleration is really limiting the skill we'll see in this game. I think forwards could use a little more help this year, and this is coming from a full-time defensemen.

    Do you mean on your knees? Because that's not really butterfly even though EA seems to think so. Hell, they still can't get right & left hand correct for goalies after how many years?

    Deflections are terrible, it is almost useless to play in the traffic.

    The pokes in this game defeat the purpose of body position. I shouldn't have a partial breakaway and get the puck stripped from behind when my body is between the defenseman and the puck.

    Screw the poke checks, the goalie animations NEED to be fixed. There is absolutely ZERO reason this should be happening.

    How is CHEL supposed to be taken as anything more than a joke, LG/esports/etc. You'd have to be a fucking moron to play in a money league when this shit happens LOL...

    EVERY YEAR it's something new. Sticklifts not working, captain lag, bunny hopping goalies, whatever the fuck THIS video is above. The game has been out for how long, and I've seen this animation countless times already. HOW??????????
