My friend and I usually play 2v2 club matches, with the others (RW, LD, RD, G) being AI. It has become quite obvious that our team's computer players play a hell of a lot worse than the other team's. At first I thought we were just making a generic excuse for losing some games, but it has been the case in every game whether we are winning or losing. They turn over the puck to the other team without anyone calling for the pass, they make no attempt to skate after a loose puck in the defensive or offensive zone, and they give the other team a ton of space when they enter the zone allowing them to do whatever they want while we get immediate pressure and get laid out by the opposing AI. Also, on a few instances that actually proved it to me... Both me and my friend that I play with fought the other team's players. So only AI on the ice for both teams. This has happened on two separate occasions, and both times the opposing AI scored twice while we were all in the box. This told me that our computer players play worse. Basically, I was wondering if the strategies that you control with the D-Pad for fore-checking and stuff made any actual difference in the way the AI plays. Are there specific strategies that will make the compute skate after loose pucks and actually hit another player a few times?
