//Defensive AI: Is there any plan to help them prevent cross crease goals?
As mentioned, we are working on improving the AI defense all around. I agree that there are some issues regarding the defensive AI and they are not limited to cross crease goals. Speaking on preventing cross crease there are two ways to look at it:
1) Making the defensive AI more challenging when you are playing against the CPU. This is definitely something we are working on as we want offline users who enjoy a challenge against the CPU to feel challenged. Again, the cross crease is a part of hockey, but we want to make it so it’s not the “go-to goal” when you are down and can always beat the CPU.
2) Making the defensive AI support you better as a user when you are trying to stop the cross crease. I know there are issues around this as well and it will be worked out by the time NHL 11 comes around.
