We need less pivots on topic, please focus on the terrible “feel” of TPS and how to fix this for EASHL online modes. We are all in agree TPS is more “real”, however there is also a large agreement that TPS/skating in general since TPS was introduced has zapped all the fun out of game, NHL DEV, please stay on topic on this very discussion.
What internal discussions are the developers having about fixing the skating engine so it’s more responsive? Please talk about that specific issue, you’ve read 1,000’s of TPS is terrible, game is clunky, a chore posts since NHL 13, you gave it a good run, TPS is advanced cool stuff in theory, but it doesn’t and hasn’t played well in reality, please address this issue by explaining to the community future direction on control/responsiveness/skating = bring back the fun in this game.
I don’t think you’re going to get the answer you want on this. Anytime it is discussed we get a drawn out answer that basically comes down to ‘we have a specific vision for the game, and it isn’t what you want’. We have had countless threads discussing the issues with the skating and it hasn’t been addressed in how many years now
“We have had countless threads discussing the issues with the skating and it hasn’t been addressed in how many years now?”
I don’t disagree with that, however the voices have never been as loud or as many as now about this topic of “anti TPS”, that is progress, that is a movement, that is what we need to inspire EA to finally listen and do something about it.
NHL DEV said they can tune TPS, why not tune it all the way down to remove as much weight/momentum as possible and let us play like that for one month and get feedback how everyone either enjoyed it or didn’t, then go from there.
