How do faceoffs work in this game?


Recommended Posts

here's a better question; why when I win the faceoff back does it go to the left side of the screen d man and doesn't mirror image the up down?

I still think there is something to the faceoff that is mostly but not entirely random.

the tips say that your faster players are better at faceoffs, so I think that is a big factor.  it would be nice to know if there is a you-were-too-early penalty that delays your next attempt like live Jeopardy (game show) has.

15 of 16 in one game is awesome but that just as well could be 1) luck and 2) slower opponent on draws, if its a factor. If he won 12 of 16 in 7 games straight, then that guy figured it out for sure.

I always had pretty strong faceoff numbers when I played sober and used to talk to Plabax about similar things we noticed a lot depended on WHERE the face off was and when it was much more than WHOM was in the faceoff.  We both agreed than in certain positions, pulling back worked more times than sideways, etc.

I never spent long hours analyzing data, but I definitely knew if against the boards, pulling to back and towards the goalie won more faceoffs than anything.

Also, felt like PAPER/ ROCK / SCISSORS to me, in that what your opponent which direction your opponent was going for would alter what worked best for you.  I swear, vs some guys who I knew always pulled back, or always pulled to the right, I'd win a much higher faceoff than guys who mixed it up.

….no need for this, but at least take it to the NHL '94 Community section, yeah?

thank you for explaining what you meant by the r/p/s experience -- it didn't click for me what you meant until you went into the explanatory details.

Completely non-scientific, but I 've always found that if you were killing a penalty and aimed your faceoff to the big empty hole where your player used to be - you'd win it there almost every time.
