EA Sports have posted another NHL 11 blog. This one takes an in-depth look at the EA Sports Ultimate Hockey League.
"The last point above about player types can impact their line chemistry. We decided that making solid lines makes sense to help chemistry but it is one of the smaller impacts. So having 3 Tough guy forwards on a line is not great for chemistry as they will not make a great line. Having a Sniper play with a Playmaker and Two Way Forward will give a small boost in chemistry. You will see that it is a minor effect but it makes sense and it doesn’t matter who is playing with in terms of talent just that the roles for the lines and defensive pairings make sense.
We have been playing the last little while and it is addictive to sit and try to get the best chemistry possible for your team as this will help your team on the ice as it will increase your team’s ratings if your chemistry is high. This is a good way to make a cheap line of CHL players with good chemistry able to perform much better against better opponents."
