Yeh thats what we were doing last night when we had a human goalie
You should also get on comms with us and join in the banter. Dont be shy or come out with an excuse that you dont have a headset.
great games tonight really enjoyed them even though we didnt deserve to lose that last one. totally domination in faceoffs, time in off zone and some great passing. top night, shame its back to work tmr booo
Yeh, awesome games tonight. Three shut-out wins and lots of sexy hockey. Good stuff.
Awemazing night, just what I like, quick passing and sexy goals
You guys amaze me. How you can stay up till all hours then get up for work is beyond me.
I was on early but didn't see anyone, so played a couple of drop in games. It is clearly evident that there isn't a hope of getting the required stats playing with randoms. I quit more games than I completed and met some utter uber *****s.
You know the ones, they don't even let the CPU get pass the blue line because they keep calling for passes off of them. muppetts.
I've thus given up on my short-lived quest and will stick to just playing for a laugh. The most fun I had this weekend was getting thrown out of one of the games for boarding It took me a whole period to realise
Yeah I've given up trying to get legend mate, if it happens it happens, if not, no worries! Can't seem to get past B+, team play is what lets me down, I expect it's due to turnovers from trying too many ambitious passes (or just making plain awful ones!)
Wasn't about last night as was visiting the folks for Sunday dinner and stayed over. Glad it went well though, the last few times we've played we seem to all be passing it about really nice, everyone getting involved, and playing good stuff...
Using a headset is a nightmare for me, just doesn't work in my house with constant interruptions...
Weird also that when I have the headset on my game-rage seems 10 times worse than it normally is.
I'm getting restless and feel a gamertag change coming on....
I see you pushed the boat out with the gamertag change....!
I get headset rage too. The language on Black Ops. Jeez....
Had a few games of hockey today. I'm still rubbish. Bah. Could do with getting to the end of my BAP season to at least unlock a few more boost slots. Or I could just submit to EA and handover the points....
pay the EA gods my son
Got told off again for shouting at NHL noobs last night, so my HS has been confiscated!
On the more positive side, I've signed up to ESPN (& ESPN America) for a trial so should be getting some real Hockey through the Telly now (when I get near it).
It Looks like it's the Red Wings vs the Penguins tonight, so I'll get the recorder on for that one; should be good!
been getting loads of practice as a goalie in my BAP goalie career on superstar, got drafted in the 5th round by blue jackets and impressed them so much i was starting goalie in my 3 seasons with them
now left them and joined the dallas stars and hope i can help them win the stanley cup
One of the things that struck me watching the NHL highlights on TV was how good the goalies are over there. Some of the saves they pull off are fantastic.
good games last night looks like i hit form 2 hat tricks
richie played well in nets just a bit unlucky on some goals but still made some great stops i take it your using the butterfly build?
I really enjoy the goalie v goalie games.
hmm yes it sounds a good idea for getting my goals count up a bit!
I refuse to play human against CPU games as 9 times out of 10 the team with the human goalie will lose, but if both teams have human, you should generally get high scoring games at both ends. Its not necessarily the fault of the human players, but more the controls/camera angle. Im playing a career as goalie and half the shots I don't even see coming through traffic. There should be a button to peek around people!
I'm around for a bit tonight (7-9ish) , but I guess everyone will be on late again!
for that put points in vision does help, can`t remember what mine is think it`s 86 online but think 83 for my offline goalie, but i really love playing as a goalie
how does it help exactly? Does it move your goalie's limb automatically in the direction of the puck when there's traffic or something?!
One thing that made me laugh was that during a game where I was in goal, my eldest came in and sat beside me to watch..
After about 10 minutes he asked me why I hadn't blinked at all It's true, you really need to get in the zone when playing goalie. I only have time to blink in between periods lol.
I'm on later. Prob be in-between the pipes again. I really struggle on covering the puck up. Any tips?
i know the Y button covers the puck, i also have a lot of rebound control points added
when i go on NHL shortly i`ll post my set up
i play my goalie with the hybrid build and overall is 87, plus i put his height at 193m and weight at 91.3kg, reason for that was wanted him a bit taller and it suits me
five hole 88
glove high 89
glove low 78
stick high 88
stick low 74
passing 80 don`t really need a lot of passing as a goalie
poke check 86
rebound control 89
shot recovery 84
didnt add any points for aggressiveness
agility 90 but i have +9 boost points added so makes that 99
durability same as agressiveness
endurance same as above
this might help you then might not
if it doesn`t help then have a look at this forum Goalie Discussion - EASHL Forum
Lol just read that forum, came back here and you posted that. Gonna tinker in a bit
bugger. gods knows whats wrong with my connection. internet works fine but xbox live wont connect. better luck next week i guess...
Cheers for last night, few more games and I'll get the hang of it ... just trying out the different camera views etc and added the defensive d-man boost pack after our games so can land a few hits now.
Thought you played very well, def is a hard position to play and you looked like someone who'd been doing it for ages. I'll be on tonight at some point but stuck in work till late.
I should be on after the Blaze vs Caps game (that'll be a hoot!) for a while.
I just base my game on a mixture of Jason Robinson and Brian Lee ... with an up and coming D-Man in the family I pay attention more to them so I can try and help him learn
And after last nights games I played a few drop ins and got my first point!
i struggled last night will be on tonight until near midnight then watching the leafs beat the caps
going to practice with my goalie either online or offline later
Richard, don't be rude.. Introduce your new fellow to us!
