I'm very close to throwing this game away at playing NHL 12 for another year. My online record was about 150-40 or so, with a very low DNF, I think around 5%. I was simply great in all facets of the game, offense, cycle, d, I was solid.
I bought NHL 13 on Wednesday. My online record is 1-4, I can barely score, and I have 2 loss to my buddy who I usually beat 70% of the time, and I had 0 goals in the 2 games.
Anyone else prefer 12? 13 feels like my guys are standing in quick sand, my d gets blown past all the time, the ai doesn't feel any smarter. I have it set to crash the net, I'm holding the puck but none of my guys go to the net, one timers seem impossible, ai lets passes go right past them. For someone who could easily win in NHL 12, this game doesn't even feel like the same franchise. My buddy said he preferred 12 as well.
Am I alone? Anyone else feel this way? Do I need to keep getting my ass kicked online to get the hang of it. People are raving about the new skating, I **** hate it.
Sorry for the rant, I'm just incredibly frustrated and read to break the disc and go back to a game that's a year old.
