The way it works right now is if an opposing team player is too close then you cannot type pp to pause the game. If a goalie has the puck and someone is sharking on the crease then you can't pause, even though they have no way of getting the puck from you. That's the only issue I see with the current system.

Yes at the time it was put in the criteria was you or anyone on your team can type pp when your team has possession. There is a green pp in the top right indiciating when you can pause. You dont have to have possession yourself. You cannot pause if there is an enemy within a small radius around you. I believe the decision was made for the radius so you cant pause in the middle of a turnover or clickbattle, or anything that would comprimise a play when the game resumed.

There is no way to change the default pause button, only to remove it and replace it with something else. Sadface.

I can definitely see goalies being able to pause regardless of enemy proximity if they are in the crease. I like the idea.

Perhaps we can change the function of typing pp in chat to just hitting the p key once on your keyboard? Not sure that anyone binds their p key to abilities.

Im open to whatever as long as its technically possible, just let me know Kurt and it shall be so. Reducing the radius, changing the pause to p key, giving goalies 100% pause capabilities, etc.

Also, if any of the above functionality isnt working as described, this is a bug that needs to be fixed. Havent seen an issue myself yet though.

It wasn't working in my CHL game last night. There were times when we had possession with no one around, and the PP in the top right of the screen, and it wouldn't pause, you can check the replay to see. Unless the small radius is about 4 skater's lengths, there was no reason we shouldn't have been able to pause last night, but nevertheless we couldn't. :(

I don't think typing pp with puck is hard as people make it out to be. I hit other keys a lot (when we lose i tend to faceroll my keyboard and throw it across the room), so I think this would interfere with a few things.

But seriously, I don't think it's hard to type pp with puck, and if you can't, then you're in a too high-pressure situation to be allowed to pause in the first place.

Can you make it a hard key like you did goalie? Like P or Pause/break? would that be better?

I actually think the current system is good because you can't just pause when ur about to lose the puck or just feel under pressure (enemies near).

A good fix to the above issue would be allowing a goalie in possession of the puck, in his crease, to pause at any time, if if he's being sharked (enemies near).
In that game Proster did pass to Eric at one point, and he was in his crease, but he still couldn't pause.

The only thing teams would need to ensure getting a pause would be having to pass to their own goalie, which is easy enough.

Edit: ofc fucking water beat me to it
