    This works, as tried out tonight. Only thing is when your near a player engage them as it didn't seem to pick puck up the same as when in passing lane......

    Not according to Game.co.uk it isn't! I got an email telling me the pre-order (that i've already cancelled) release date has changed and the game is now released on 23rd September.

    What a joke that company has become. :rotfl:

    i watched that clip for the tips thing, and noticed another one for Acc and Speed which was really helpfull by putting less points in Acc and more points in speed made my player loads quicker :laugh:

    Those videos are very good - I've suddenly realised that a better understanding of the tactics might be quite useful!!

    :D - good point!

    Hoping to fire up the 360 tonight to get started. Likely to be a little sporadic for a few weeks though...

    this game is excellent and for 2 periods always defend ok. But the cheating AI always manage to get a goal right near the end of the 3rd. Nearly smashed 2 controllers. Will take a look at that video later.

    I can never get any games! :smashin:

    I don't generally get on for long and without a headset it's a major hassle to raise anyone or work out what is going on. I even joined twitter but am yet to receive the neural implant that indicates when other members are ready for a game lol :)

    I'm still around for other game modes and will still do the drop-ins as I do like BAP.

    The BAP team requires too much time commitment which I don't have at the mo.

    Puck size. Wow, how have I missed this for a year? Have been playing on factory setting which was large puck, medium shadow but after reading about this I've given it a try on Authentic puck size, small shadow and it really does look and play an even better game of hockey. Going back to large puck doesn't seem right anymore

    Is there an AVF team up and running? I'm not seeing anything in the Clan section?

    Not that I'm ready to join it - need some practice and to renew my gold sub.

    Excellent - hopefully I'll be online by the end of the month and can play a few games.

    I didn't really enjoy 11 all that much, but this version seems to have rekindled my love for the game. Changing the camera angle so that I can see more of the ice has helped too. Did have my first freeze in a game the other night, which was a pain. It's the first time I can remember NHL doing that I years....
