Faceoffs

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, so...

 

Pretty much the only part of this game that I don't understand is the faceoffs.

How do they work? How much chance is involved, and how?

What is the best strategy?

Hey Zippy,
there are varying opinions on this.  And it has come up before. (See links below.)  (Also, I moved this thread from Bo Knows Best.. fits here better.)

My own feeling is, there is no strategy to winning; it is random.  The only thing you can do is use the D-pad to direct it.  But as I say, others feel differently.

I don't think there is one.  I usually just mash the B button and hold the down arrow.  I'm usually above 50% but it seems very random as to who wins vs exact timing of the puck drop.  There have been times where I forgot to hit the B button or was off on my timing and still won.  Maybe certain attributes effect success?  I haven't tested or seen anything mentioning it.

I'm a believer in the rock-paper-scissors theory proposed by Brutus in one of the links, also backed by Plabax a few posts later. I have no evidence for it, though. Just has felt right a few times (was losing a lot of faceoffs, changed my direction, started winning all of them.. could be random though!)
