NHL 19 is the latest entry in the NHL series from EA, and it brings a lot of improvements and changes that you should be aware of. There are a lot of tricks to master here and if there’s anything at all you would like to know about the game, then this guide is here to help you out.
If you’re ready, then let’s get started!
GENERAL TIPS AND TRICKS
Don’t Abuse Poke-checks
In earlier NHL titles, you must have got used to using poke-checks a lot, but doing the same here can easily end up in an automatic penalty. If you hit the puck first and then follow through the legs, you won’t get a penalty. However, if your poke-check goes through the legs without this being the case, you will get a penalty. Use Hitting and Stick lifts as part of your defense. You can also try hitting the opponent along the bars to try and get the puck from them.
Pay Attention To Stamina
Stamina plays a very important role in the game in all of the World of Chel game modes. If your player runs out of stamina, then you will no longer be able to make use of your trait and specialty bonuses. Because of this, you will have to be careful in managing your stamina and you will have to ensure that it doesn’t get too low at any point.
Vision Control Is Important
Vision control is really important in NHL 19 and it really makes you feel a lot more in control of your player when skating around. Make sure you get used to its sensitivity first in some practice matches, but once you get the hang of it, you will be on a whole other level of skill.
Practice Player Switching
NHL 19 brings a new player switching system, and it’s pretty great. Basically, by holding down RT and using the right analog stick, you can switch to any player in the direction you want, and not just the player closest to the puck. This makes player switching a lot faster, but it might take a while to get the hang of it. Practice this out in some practice matches, and it will be crucial to win in high level play.
Coordinate When Necessary In NHL Ones
NHL Ones is the 1v1v1 free for all mode, and sometimes it would be best to coordinate with another player. If you’re down by some points and the game is nearing its end, but the other two players have almost the same number of points, then try and create a tie by helping out the player who has fewer points. This will ensure you get another chance to win in the tiebreaker round.
Wait For The Rebounds
A lot of times, the best tactic would be to position yourself so that you can get a rebound from an opponent’s wasted shot. This will allow you to get an easy shot in without your opponent being able to defend quickly enough. As such, don’t always chase after your opponent or try to prevent their shot because their wasted shot can help you attain victory.
Shooting Goals Is Easy
If things aren’t quite going your way or you’re unable to pull off some particularly skilled move, then sometimes you should just try shoot the puck. The goalkeeper in this game is very bad at defending, so it’s quite easy to get lucky and end up with a goal. So, shoot away when you feel like it, and there’s a good chance that it will pay off.
