3 NEW NHL 20 Strategies You Must Know

3 NEW NHL 20 Strategies You Must Know


In the 80’s, Toys-R-Us, these guys, were the
#1 retailer in all of the US for toys. Last year, every single US location
was shut down Toys R Us was bankrupt.
And I know what you’re thinking. “What the
shit does the decline of every 90s kid’s favorite toy store have to do with NHL
20? I’ll get to that in just a second, but keep it in the back of your mind. More
importantly, their story is an extremely valuable lesson for players whenever a
new game comes out. See, because a new game means new features, which inevitably
leads to what I call the “Coasters vs. Adapters.” Now, the coasters are the
kind of NHL players have been playing the same way since “Everytime We Touch”
dropped. They never account for new changes and they always get mad at
EA for quote “ruining the game.” Trust me, this is not why you should be
mad at them. Last year, you could have seen who these people were just based on how much
they were poke-checking. Now the other type of player views these
changes as a massive opportunity for growth. They don’t just buy a new Chel
and play it like it’s NHL 94. They actively analyze the changes that EA
makes, for better and for worse, and adjust their on a strategy accordingly. I call
these guys the “Adapters,” who are usually right here. Players who incorporate new
features and tweaks into their games so they can maximize their ability to win
consistently. If you’re watching this video, that’s the group you want to be in
by the time NHL 20 comes out. I know I do. I’ve been playing since 09′ but only
recently have I been actively trying to improve my game and really dig into the
nuances to get the biggest advantage possible. So that’s why I dug it to this
year’s gameplay trailer and made strategies based on the three most
important changes. Here they are: Number 1: Contextual Shots. Contextual Shots
open up a huge variety of new shot options and scoring chances. Offensively,
it should be easier to use top-shelf backhanders and shoot pucks off the rush
quicker. With these changes, you can integrate more slap passes, one-timers,
backhanders, and shots off the rush into your arsenal. I’ve actually tried a lot
of these scenarios in older games, but I couldn’t do them because of the game
engine. So personally, this is my favorite change. Defensively, opposing players will
be bigger shooting threats, so you’ll want to make sure you have the close
positioning on them. Keeping your stick in the lanes and
breaking up one-time passes will also be more crucial. Number 2: Explosive
Transitions. This change makes it easier to receive passes on the rush and pick
up loose pucks without losing your stride. Offensively, this makes the
breakout pass and the rush that much more potent. The neutral zone’s gonna look
like the set of Fast and Furious with all that speed going around. Am I Right? Defensively, I can see players
overusing the long breakout passes through the neutral zone, so that leaves
passes vulnerable to being intercepted. But as a whole, this year’s Chel looks
like it’ll require more smart, sound defensive positioning. Being too
aggressive will lead to deadlier counter-attacks, so a more conservative
defensive strategy could be best. Lastly we have Intelligent Saves. Goalie AI will
redirect pucks with their sticks or pads away from rebound opportunities and into
the corners. They’re also more in control of pucks in the crease,
which was done to address the stupid amount of soft
rebounds they would give up in NHL 19. When I saw this in the trailer I was
like holy shit… NHL goalies actually do that. Now
this changed mostly helps defensive teams. A smarter goalie obviously means
less goals against and it’s a great change to balance the quicker shots and
passing changes I mentioned before. Now you won’t have to worry about
frustrating garbage goals because of stupid rebounds. With more pucks being
directed into corners, get to the corners before the offensive team and try to use
the Explosive Transition features to get the puck out of your zone faster. So
these are the adjustments I believe NHL 20 players will have to make on both
ends of the puck. Overall, these changes mainly increase offensive chances and
game speed, so the game should be more of a track race, They do make the game
feel a lot more authentic to real NHL hockey, which is probably why it’ll be
patched pretty soon. So now, let’s bring it back to the Toys-R-Us story the
reason Toys-R-Us failed as a company is because they just couldn’t adjust to the
times. Companies like Amazon were delivering a superior online experience
for customers while Toys-R-Us never really invested the time and effort into
making their own. They were Coasters and it costs them heavily. So if it’s not
clear yet, Do. Not. Be. Toys. R. Us. You should be applying an Adapter’s Mindset wherever
in your life, whether it be in chel, school or work. So that’s my video on the
biggest changes this year. If you like that video,
