Hi All,

This question really has to deal with three primary line settings. Checking and Energy in offense and Dynamic in Defense.

Is there anywhere to find a description of how these are used and its benefits? I understand checking but from what I gather that style of play never really made a big impact as to how many hits my team accumulated - it should reflect physical play but how exactly does it effect it?

What is energy good for? Anything?

What are the primary differences between Dynamic and Matchline defensively?

Thanks!

There is a description when you first open up the lineup as long as you have the "HINTS" option checked on. You can check this by going to the MANAGER page and then after clicking the ACTION tab on the MANAGER page, click SETTINGS and you will see an option that says "HINTS" and you can choose to display hints or hide them. Once you have confirmed that the hints are being displayed, go to the TEAM page and then after clicking the ACTION tab on the TEAM page, click LINEUP. Wait for a little bit for the page to load and a black box that says Lineup Hints will appear under it says Edit Lineup. If you continue to click next it will show you info on the different lineup settings as well as how to use the LINEUP page. 

 

In order to help you out, I copy and pasted the info below for what you were looking for 

 

The checking line is responsible to get under the skin of and agitate the opponents scoring line. They will focus on defensive duties and you´ll need players that can backcheck hard, deliver body checks and play tough.

 

The energy line usually don´t have a lot of ice time but when they take the ice they will create a lot of momentum by hard forechecking and delivering body checks. Perfect for waking your team out of a slump. You´ll need speedy players with a lot of spirit.

 

The defensive match line focus means that depending on which line the defencemen plays with they will try to adapt to the lines focus. This will demand a lot of the defensemen and they will need to master all areas of the game. Basically means the D will try to match the focus of the Offensive line they are playing with at the time

 

The dynamic focus will tell the defensemen to attack when the opportunities arises but never at the expense of risking their defensive duties. Basically a Two Way for Dmen. 

 

Think I answered everything.

I'm going to move this thread. I think the Help Files section is meant for Anders to inform us about features in the game :)

This makes sense, however, does the game recognize what lines are on the ice and match them up?  Does it matter which line is your checking line (line 2, line 3, etc.)?  Or are the line match-ups random (which is my assumption based on the ice time %'s you set)?

Perhaps we need a new setting, for all of those "half-hearted" guys: 

 

"Skate like your arse is on fire, or your arse will be glued to the bench for the whole 3rd period".

Lol

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger bat

It's not paranoia if they are really out to get you!
