The NHL 2K10 patch list has been posted.

Quote:
GAMEPLAY
• Fixed soft crash with referee not dropping the puck when playing with slower speed settings.
• Retuned the default sliders to make gameplay faster.
• Retuned the speed for acceleration and launches, allowing the user to break out mid launch.
• Players can now speed burst during crossover animations.
• Pinning has now been made easier, and can be initiated with the check button at slower speeds.
• Stick sweeps and poke checks retuned to more accurately knock the puck away when hitting the puck or stick rather than the puckhandler.
• Retuned shot velocity on rebounds and loose pucks.
• Retuned one-timer animations so players closer to the net will now deflect the puck rather than take slap shots.
• One-timers are now more difficult and will be missed more often if the player isn’t in good position.
• Briefly disable loose shots when sweeping your stick without the puck and then gaining possession.
• Penalties are slightly reduced globally.
• Retuned how the AI clears the puck on Penalty Kills.
• Reduced the number of diving poke checks done by goalies.

• AI is more aggressive on defense during odd man rushes.

ONLINE
• Fixed de-sync related to custom soundtracks in online games.

• Fixed OT Losses not tracking correctly in online play.
• Allow custom sliders to be used in unranked matches.
• Fixed the bug where you will randomly gain control of the goalie in Team Up mode.
• Fixed the issue so that users will always maintain the same color during Team Up mode.

Via Ronnie.

You can probably expect the patch within a month, probably quite sooner. I will update you with an exact date when I have it.

It will definitely be interesting to see how the game plays after the patch.

im glad I just sold my copy of NHL10 for 40$ on ebay...Putting all my eggs into one basket with 2k right now

Looks good so far. I'm a little disappointed I didn't see much about goalies though, other then diving saves. Also, no cosmetic issues (i.e. goalie masks) were addressed. Seems to be mostly AI code issues which I'm content with. It's a long list and hopefully it's tested properly as to not "over-fix" the game. Good job!

I figured as much, but you never know what you can do with a roster update or patch. Either way I'm not heartbroken over it. I'm excited to see how much the fixes will change the game

I can fix some goalie mask coloring with a roster update, but that's about it. If there is any notes on goalie masks you think could be better then definitely feel free to post them here and I'll see what I can do.

Shadow, can you confirm if this patch will be released for the PS3 as well?
 
# 10 original6 @ 11/11/09 06:50 PM
Great list of fixes! Thanks Shadow!

While I'm eagerly awaiting the patch, I'm equally dreading the possibility of having to adjust sliders again because of the gameplay tuning. But, I'll take a patch and tweak over no patch any day.

Very comprehensive list.... thx very much for listening to customer feedback. I may have missed it, but my questions are:

Will there be any fix for shot and clearing animations, especially making backhand clearing attempts and some shots stay as backhand and not switching to awkward looking forehand attempts?

When advancing the puck from the defensive zone and through the neutral zone, it seems that aiming to pass off the boards is ineffectual (I use 80 human pass with 33 pass aim assist, which should be more than enough to accomplish a bank pass on pro control). Instead it goes straight up ice to the receiver. Will the patch address bank passes at all?

Thx so much and possibly putting 2K back into the hockey gaming race and into the lead where it belongs!
 
# 12 phillyfan23 @ 11/11/09 07:49 PM
that's a great list....

my 2 favorites are the d-men agressiveness tuning in the zone and odd man rushes.

If this is really well done.....the game will be great. D-men a.i was the only reason I stopped playing. The rest is icing on the cake for me, but happy nonentheless.

Hopefully, the changes are very pronounced.
 
# 13 18 eighty 5 @ 11/11/09 09:15 PM
Thankyou for posting the list!

Also, as some others have asked, will this patch be available for ps3 owners?
 
# 14 Cozmicoz @ 11/12/09 08:00 AM
Glad to see that 2k is trying to bring their game back to respectability. Also glad that they are slowly 'de-glitching' the game.

Great fix-list, however there's no mention of backward-to-forward skating transition fixes... (big problem with user control)

Also, although this is minor, it would have been great for them to fix the goalie 'warping' and 'immediate resetting' after a goal... just an aesthetic touch, but NHL 2K8 had realistic goalie animations following goals.

I look forward to the day that 2k fans can just pop their game in their console, and PLAY the hell out of it instead of trying to 'repair' or investigate 'workarounds' for gameplay or game mode inadequacies.

Thanks Shadow - is this the first and last patch that 2K10 will see?

Cheers,
Cozmicoz

Thanks Shadow and 2K for the info. Thank you for listening to fans issues/concerns.

This is a pretty impressive list
 
# 16 JkA3 @ 11/12/09 01:59 PM
Substantial List. Hopefully it all works out.

You know the longer they dont answer the question the more i have my doubts.

Q-What systems will the patch be released for?

A-?
There's no reason to believe it won't be for both the PS3 and 360. It would be suicide for it NOT to be. The Wii is the only system to get the shaft.

I look forward to the day when ANY sports gamer can such a thing. I think we'll be looking for a LONG time.

A question for Shadow:

Will 2k beats now be turned off during the game when we move this presentation slider to zero. Thx...
 
# 20 Eddie1967 @ 11/12/09 06:16 PM
Outstanding, I am really impressed with the support 2k/VC is giving hockey this year. First NBA 2K10 now this, what a great year for 2k sports.
