Awesome night. 6-3-0 on the night although we played way better than our record shows. 29 - 15 goal differential and it probably would have been even better if that team hadn't bailed after we went up 6-1.

I could play 1 game right now, or I'll be on about 3 hours from now. Also, I noticed that no one has played goalie. Do you guys just prefer to have a computer goalie?

We can give it a whirl some night if we end up with 6 on. I used to play it in NHL 09-11 but i hate what theyve done to the controls so i dont even play goalie offline anymore.

Fallout. Yeah or nay??
It's slow paced but i liked it alot. tried inviting you 2-3 times after the xbox msg but it said you refused or something, must have a been a problem because I had to quit the game and relog at one time to team up with Marv again

NHL 19 Tuner 1.03 - Expected Availability October 24th @ 2am PST

This tuner is aimed to help address two major areas of feedback we have seen from the community: the prevelance of Skillzone defense and incidental contact/bumps being too strong.

  • Tuned down AI aggression towards the puck carrier and loose pucks in Online VS and HUT
  • Further muting of AI defensive actions in Online VS and HUT. There will still be some rare cases where the AI will perform a defensive action if the puck comes loose as we want them to defend passes and their logic works similar on pass receptions and loose puck acquisition.
  • Improved cases where an AI goalie was reacting too quickly to passes even when not reading a pass.
  • Improved cases where an AI goalie was able to recover too easily against their momentum.
  • Improved cases where goaltender passes were getting overly assisted
  • Improved some cases where players would sometimes lose the puck from incidental contacts that weren’t big enough to trigger a stumble. This was done by increasing the distance the puck needs to be from the stick for incidental puck loss. Collisions of stumbles or greater remained unchanged and will follow the same physics behavior as before.
  • Improved a player’s ability to withstand push checks at lower relative speeds, especially from behind. Results will still vary based on the players involved and the more detailed context of the collision.

    We’re continuing to monitor some other major areas of feedback from the community, however at this time we have not implemented any changes. These include skating and poke checking.
I guess.

Yeah. I didn't get anything. Server dropped for me. And then I got back on, but didn't get anything from ya. Definite buy for me. Met some cool dudes and got to level 11. Only thing I'm worried about at this point is how long until I get bored.

well it's a slow paced game. if you dont like scavenging, crafting and questing(aka. lore) then it'll get boring fast I guess.
