Redline or Practice Mode as Vote Option

Post by Vapour » Mon Jan 18, 2016 1:20 am

For early or late night hockey, I would love to include a legit Redline mode to ensure any number of players can play without having 8 experienced players available.

Optimized Half Rink for Redline
-- prohibit icing
-- room for clear zone

Redline modes can include:
- Target Practice [1/2p]
-- many pucks on the ice
-- practice shots on net/goalie
-- solo could remove crease/have the inside net elastic

- Classic 1v1 [3p]
-- practice for defensive steals, breakaways on goalies

- FAA 1v1v1 [4p]
-- offensive practice

- 2v2 Team Redline [5p]
-- some ppl asked how (only the skater with the puck have to clear to regain possession of zone)
-- solid for team practice against consistent defense
-- solid goalie practice against almost all shots they will face in a regular game

- 3v3 Large Team Redline [7p]

Other ideas can be

- Dead Zealot/Dead Goalie to practice range steals (solo testing)

I strongly believe this is needed to allow any number of skaters online to play.
Please let me know on your thoughts, I would love to discuss further supporting ideas.

These are some very good ideas, particularly being able to remove the crease restriction so a skater could take repeated shots without having to wait for faceoffs in between

I think this could be good. Ideally we can combine this practice mode with some sort of tutorial and then training so that noobs have an easy way to learn and practice mechanics.. and experienced players have a controlled practice environment. We should get a formal plan together, that list is a good start

If we were to implement some kind of practice mode for skaters like this, I have been wanting a practice mode for goalies for a while, where there are different areas pucks can come from, and pucks will be shoot at goal at varying speeds and angles for goalies to practice with. For something like this, perhaps reduce goalie cooldown, or reset it after every puck, which should allow for goalies to train vs snipes and such very well.

Would you use a feature where a little machine zooms around and shoots pucks at you, possibly with a little helper machine who may or may not be fed a onetimer? I think that would be fun.
