Updated review

Thanks for making the goalies easier to score on now. Good job adding new players keep on doing that. Just an idea, can u guys add legends to the game like Orr, Gretzky, etc...
Other than that great work on the fixes.
The one thing left to fix imo is the timer on the free agents. I have the same timer repeating itself for 3 days with the same agents so if u can fix that too, that will be amazing. Thx

Almost an amazing game

You’ve gotta stop with all the cherry pickers and 2x attack. How can you compete against 3 up front? Also, to stack upon that, when they get a shot an I make a save, they end up with full power again. Meanwhile, when I get a shot, I have the same crap energy left.
Perfect example of a terrible Gameplay situation, I knock out all 3 guys as a cherry picker shot expires, I make the save, and they all come back full health and in my zone, while I still have less than half energy. That’s the problem.
Another gripe I have is, the players take too much gold and/or cards to level up. Even playing almost 1000 games, I still have so far to go leveling up 3 and 4 star characters.
As far as PVP, if you make a goal light at the same time you finish your opponent, why are they rewarded with it on the next turn? Regardless of whether you score or not. A few tweaks and this would be an AMAZING game.

Great game because hockey

Play like Marvel Puzzle Quest with hockey flair. No need to actually spend money on a free game too. That gold is super valuable perhaps more so than the diamonds for leveling players up.

Devs how about a forum a place for us to chat about strategies, tips and tricks, and line combos please? I’ve scoured the Internet for a group or forum of folks that play, but clearly it’s pretty niche title. Thanks for all the cosmetic updates from the original launch and the updated players and the like. Appreciate the new leagues I was stuck playing the same for months and quit playing for quite a few months and just returned back. It’s good to be play again with some progression.

Keep up the work dudes!
