NHL 20 update 1.40 changelog

– We have updated the skate model so that players lose more speed when disrupting their core balance/weight distribution when by pivoting over and over. This year we had already removed the ability to accelerate during parts of a pivot that a player shouldn’t be able to but players that were spamming pivot weren’t losing as much skating speed as they should considering what the responsiveness allows them to do.


– Puck carriers pivot speeds will be impacted by trying to pivot at high speeds to simulate what they would need to do to keep control of the puck

In terms of the potential adjustments we’re looking to make, they to revolve around pivoting but are a bit more harsh than what was shown above:

– We may add the ability for players to lose the puck if they try to pivot at higher speeds with less control.

– When puck loss is active, we have the ability for players to increase their chance of keeping the puck into a pivot if they increase control by gliding.

– Restricted directional toe drags to when a skater is moving forwards
– Improved player switching cases when a teammate has been injured
– Fixed a rare issue where tall players were unable to receive passes consistently (This would have been seen the most on D to D passes to stationary players pivoting to face the net)
-Fixed physics updates with goaltenders.

– Improved ability for Weakside defender to stay with their check on the rush

– If players continually pivot, their skating will be impacted more realistically
– Puck carriers pivot speeds will be impacted by trying to pivot at high speeds to simulate what they would need to do to keep control of the puck
