offsides are awesome!

Recommended Posts

lol they just make the game so much better and different from the usual run n gun bs. changing the attack and being aware of how you enter the attacking zone or staying in the zone with out going back over the line is great...i know alot of you including vets have never givin offsides on a chance so it should be interesting to see what you think after the fdl league entrants complete the season :D

I think we'll have an award at the end of the season:

The "I'm so good I just went offsides again" award.

Agreed, I love it. Makes it a lot funner, and it doesn't hamper the offense as much as people say it does.

AI is too dumb for offsides, if u make any kind of move at the blueline, theres no chance the AI will make that adjustment. It something different,which is nice to see, just wish the AI was smarter.

its easy to work with once you play with offsides for awhile....when the players break ahead there expecting the pass and there usually open but if u cant get them u just maneuver to let him get back onside ....very simple your just too used of run n gun ...no rules

Hokkee's right - everyone here is too used to run-n-gun...and it doesn't take a lot to get used to playing with the line.

While the official party line is that we're just trying this out, I'd really love to see blue-line leagues become the norm, instead of the rare exception.

But we will soon see.

All I know is, I never missed offsides after playing it in the first stats league. And that was with a slow ROM (most guys 3 or 4 speed and line changes on). They weren't that bad, but I think it took more fun away than it added. I'd go back to line changes before offsides.

But anyway, no more comments from me on offsides!

Honestly, I hate the blue line in the real NHL and I work for a team. I think it makes the play so monotoneous and boring. I'd rather see a guy make a play or a pass than dump the puck to the defense as soon as he gets it.

So the fact that the NHL has an offsides rule really has no importance to me. I like the fast-paced action this game allows, where it's all about playmaking skills. It's much more entertaining than the real thing, at least the NHL version. Give me some olympic sized ice sheets where more passing lanes are open and I might be okay with offsides.

Dude, nothing beats a long range breakaway bomb from your goalie to a speed merchant like Russ Courtnall or Pavel Bure. Screw the offsides, that just takes away the speed of the game. Whats fun about dancing at the blueline waiting for your moronic Right Winger (See Russ Courtnall) getting outta the O-zone?

If you want strategy, go play chess. Leave our game alone dammit :)

Hokkee is right. i cant believe some of the dis respect hes getting for this suggestion.

not to mention HOCKEY IS PLAYED WITH OFFSIDES

the break away bomb passes ice refers to are still very possible. happens in the NHL all the time. and its much more satisfying when you get it with offsides on.

And if you guys have been playing offsides off for years then it is time for a change. couldest hurt. who knows...may never go back to offsides off.

Run n' Gun til I die.

Offsides is just a terrible concept in real life. It sucks in soccer and it sucks in hockey. It's just a handicap for the defense.

I really can't stand the NHL style of play, where the best maneuver is slap the puck to no one rather than make a play.

Well, if I could implement the two-line pass rule and add another one or two lines, that'd be nice...but I can't.

Offsides is there for a reason, and something has to act as the offsides rule in hockey and soccer.

If the CPU was smart, it would do what FPB does and station a forward up in the attacking crease.

They should just have a mid ice "over and back" rule like basketball.

Most people seem to think that no offsides in real life would lead to cherry picking. Yet you don't see that in basketball, where there's not even a goalie back there.

Not having offsides on just allows more styles of play. I've seen plenty of styles of play from playing guys on here. You can play "half-court" offense on here and if you do it just makes it harder for the opponent to run n gun. Two guys that like to run n gun are going to have an up and down game. The key is establishing your style of play and getting the opponent to play that. Matt Hurray and Smozoma, if I remember right, are great at slowing the run n gun by being methodical on offense. It does work.

If you flip offsides on, then everyone will be forced to play that kind of slowed down style, save a few turnovers here or there.

Super analogy bro. Never heard that comparison. When you getting back in some leagues? KEGA has proven to be pretty smooth.

Yeah, the main reason I stopped playing was the inconsistency of gens connections. So it's nice to see KEGA has gained a following. I'll definitely be looking for some games now that people are using it.

It would be interesting to see how many more face-offs there would be per game with off-sides on.

Never even entertained the notion of suggesting playing with offsides enabled for fear I'd be tried for treason and shot at sunrise.

When I began my meteoric assent into NHL'94 mediocrity I had to acclimate to playing with offsides OFF.

My first few games were a baptism by fire versus the likes of backhandfloater and gr8199 some years ago trying to transition to netplay style because of this. Everyone told me that using offsides was a no no and the customary norm was to keep them disabled.

Not sure if I should be surprised that someone actually suggested playing with them and that there's some support, or more surprised that it's never really been discussed for league play.

Playing with a pass first offense means it's conducive to my game, so naturally I'd like to see some games played with them enabled.

Two things I'll say about offsides that some guys who never use them might not be aware of:

1. They are exploitable. It's legal to connect with long range aerial passes over the blue line with the use of a one timer while being offside in the game. I've scored many a goal this way.

Maybe this needs to be added to the bugs section?

2. All of the skaters on the ice play as though offsides are enabled, even if they are not. If you cross the blueline onside with the puck, then travel back into the neutral zone and your line mates are already in the offensive zone, then the skaters will come back out into the neutral zone to clear any type of delayed icing. Even if your not playing with offsides enabled.
