I cannot win a face-off in the NHL 13 demo.

Mods, you better not close this topic, this has nothing to do with demo impressions.

I've never had problem winning face-offs in NHL games until this demo. I've won probably 5 out of the 50 face-offs I experience today checking out the demo, it's getting very frustrating.

I cycled through trying to switch hands, trying to tie the person across from me, nothing is working.

They changed face-offs but I can't figure out how the new system they put in works.

lol, how does this have nothing to do with demo impressions???

An impression you took from the demo is that it's hard to win faceoffs.

I am loving the demo. the real time cut scenes have made a big difference in my opinion

I'm in the same boat as the OP, how the heck do you win a face off?

Re: I cannot win a face-off in the NHL 13 demo.

Nothing has changed in the faceoff system that I can tell. It seems identical to me. And I've played center almost exclusively online for a few years now.

For tips on winning draws, see the faceoff guide:

Yeah the faceoff system seems to be just like last year.....maybe a little better.....somehow?

You really have to watch when the puck drops before you go for it, which is a good thing.

Haha, my first thought too.

Anyways, I don't think I've had any issues. Noticed it was a little tougher though. Then again, have I won a faceoff in the demo? I never really thought about. Will have to pay attention next time I play.

Re: I cannot win a face-off in the NHL 13 demo.

its true that it is now alot harder to win faceoffs. there must be a trick. i had nhl 12 and was winning about 75% of the faceoffs. now i win maybe one out of 10 and people get angry because i cant win the faceoffs. im doing the same thing i used to do in the previous version but it doesnt work.

for my impressions about the game , for sure i hate the faceoff problem , but also the new skating. it is horrible. the player is slower and doesnt turn like u want like it did last year. maybe it is more realistic but slower and harder to control. the goalie is harder to control too. u cant do same movements as last year and sometimes the goalie goes down on the ice automatically or does some weird moves when you are not doing anything. personally i prefer nhl 12.i didnt see much improvement in the game and only saw bad things about it.
