Last week NHL 10's EASHL for me went from absolute fun to almost unplayable as (aside from the occasional lag filled game) the fluid game with responsive controls I had grown to love, suddenly turned into a game that I don't know how to describe.
The best way I can put it, is that my guy now feels like he is skating through mud. The controls have a delayed response of about a half second (and eternity in this context) and it has made the game almost unplayable.
It seems like some of my teammates have experienced this, but now their game is back to normal. But my game continues to be plagued by muddy gameplay.
For the record, I know what "LAG" is and this is definitely not the issue. It's not like the game slows down and then speeds back up (LAG). It's just consistently SLOW.
I guess the best way to describe it is if you've ever played Madden (or Im assuming FIFA too) and it's raining and the field is muddy yer guy (logically) is slower, more sluggish and less responsive than on a clear sunny day.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is my PS3 dying? Is PSN slowing me down? Did EA tweak the game without telling me?
I've tried 2 NEW controllers and they aren't the problem.
The only other thing to note (which leads me to think it's my PS, or PSN) is that when I type a PSN message to a buddy the "responsiveness" of the text entry is not instant and crisp...it feels delayed also.
