1. "S" stop for goalie 35% momentum cut (live version is 50%). You stop slightly slower, but not as slow as the "old" S did back in the day. So.. about half way between live version and "old version"...
2. 10% larger goal
3. 7% larger crease
4. 10% larger stick for goalie
5. Goalie boost now has 2 charges and +20% cooldown
6. Goalie move speed change (+10% ms inside crease and -10% ms outside crease)
7. Skater boost cooldown reduced by 20% (8 seconds total)
8. Skaters have boost steal
9. One-timer animation displays to both teams (audio cue only to allies)
god bless

2 charges then, since sounds like double boost is op. would mean you can't double boost AND force field, so slight nerf to the current, but doesn't remove double boost completely

I ve tried it but I think we should wait bit more before having it for real, there are very big changes that can totally change the meta and etc but we need time to adapt and I guess this test map needs many changes. Actually I cant really tell about the balance cuz the only games I ve played on it where with goalies who only evac'd with double boosts

Current set:

1. 10% Larger goal and 7% larger crease
2. 15% Larger goalie stick
3. Goalie has 2 boost charges (12sec charge cd)
4. Goalie move speed changed (+10% inside crease, -20% outside crease)
5. Skater boost CD reduced 20%
6. Skaters have boost steal

Looks to be a pretty good balance of everything so far.

How about goalies cant be stolen from? That'd be nice considering sometimes standing on the edge of the crease is a bit fuzzy.
