    Anyone know if they reduced penalties on the default sliders? Or do we still need to keep certain sliders at 1?

    I think you'll need to keep it at 1. There is no mention of it in the patch notes. Besides that's really a tuner issue, rather than a patch issue.

    I left mine wherever they were before the patch and things seem the same. One thing I noticed is we can now edit players in season mode, which is good because now I don’t have to worry about players who never fight dropping the gloves.

    Does anyone know if the updates to franchise mode in this patch will take effect in existing franchises or do we have to start over.

    No need to start over.....
    It seems that since the latest update, the CPU aggressiveness has been toned down. There's some positives to that, but a potential negative is that they're not generating a lot of shots on goal.
    The penalties on default (full sim, All-Star) still seem high. What's funny, though, is that despite the number of penalties, I'm DREADFUL at the power play. I think I'm at 5% effectiveness in my Avs Be A GM.

    They’re not generating a lot of shots but they’re scoring a lot of goals. I am too. Seems goal scoring has drastically increased since the patch. Almost all of my games are now 6-5, 7-6 etc.

    Which tuners are you fellas using?
    I’m on 1.01 default full sim, 8 min periods, and I’m only seeing 2 or 3 PP’s a game for each team. Combo of the patch and 1.03 is for sure the issue with tons of penalties being called. Slashing etc.

    Yeah, I'm on the latest tuner and there's 8-10 penalties called on the CPU most games, including several that lead to 5-on-3's.
    Guess I should go back to 1.01 and see if that helps.
    I’m using 1.03 and penalties are fine. Last game there was only one penalty call combined, game before there were several for each team.
    This latest patch also made a load out of me. After all these high scoring slugfests my last game was a 3-1 defensive struggle. It was nice to see and play.

    Yeah give it a go. I’ve always been a believer in using latest tuner for years but this crap with 1.03 penalty wise and skating so much like 18 made me go to 1.01.

    I was hoping that they would bring back the ability to edit players in season mode.

    Someone earlier in the thread said they did
    OK, the last few games I've played have been really good with the latest tuner and patch. Not sure what happened originally, but the CPU is back to playing as it did before for me, and shot totals for both sides have returned to normal.

    How have penalties been?

    Does anyone know how I select tuner 1.01? Under sliders the only two tuner options I have are 1.00 or latest

    It sounds like you haven't downloaded any of the tuners. You have to do it manually, it's not included in patches.

    Never mind, I tried out the latest tuner and there were 6 hooking penalties all by NPCs within the first 10 minutes of the first period.

    I've played dozens of games, as goalie, with 1.03. 8 min periods and everything on default except game speed 0, slashing 1, and delay of game 40, I am not seeing unrealistic penalty calls. Anywhere from 1-7 penalties per team, and it's usually 2-4 penalties per team.

    Ok, but tuner 1.01 plays great without any adjustments and you have variables I'm not going to use e.g. shorter periods, slower game speed and you're playing as goalie.
    I think my point is the latest patch didn't address the issues that were brought about when EA tuned the game to appease the streamers (or that's what the rumors are anyway), which was around tuner 1.02 coinciding with previous patches.
    I’m using tuner 1.03 with TNK’s exact penalty sliders and penalties are fine. My last game I saw one penalty per team while others I’m seeing 4,5 and 6.

    I use the latest tuner and penalties maxed and some games I see 2 per team and on rare occasions can have 6-7 per team, which to me is quite realistic, especially for rival games.
