Goalie Shield

Post by OzyWho » Sat Dec 17, 2016 10:49 am

I would like to suggest the option for goalies to cancel their FF preemptively. Specifically - to cancel the FF if the goalie makes a Right click.

I understand that the FF is a strong tool for goalie so it should have a weakness. And it is good that goalie cant move while FF is activated. But for me personally - FF is just in too many situations forcing me out of position. Talking about casual pub games where 1v1 happens often and its easy for the striker to force out a boost from me after I FF.

Opinions? :|



Note: Trash tier goalie from EU here. No clue how it all plays out in the new ZH version - we don't have it yet. From what I remember in the new ZH version when I tried it on NA - strikers, when juking at crease, have to actually move to get a shot to other corner, if goalie is positioned right. (while in this old version they pretty much just need to turn around and they can shoot other corner and hope goalie doesnt react fast enough)
So perhaps its no issue in the new ZH version that NA people play :?:

dunno man, i can see that doing more harm than good. ie i sometimes do a move command + shield, just to adjust myself oh so slightly. but depending on puck holder, its not always in that order. if move command canceled shield, that would hurt

Move command that cancel shield would first rek all players who don't use cursor boost, make goalie do a lot more misstakes and its not very required. But let's try to get a dev before asking those changes :D #FreeMusic

You can boost with active FF.
When I do FF boost I am right clicking all over the crease even though I have cursor boost option marked (I may be wrong but I think lots others do that too in heat of action).

I think it will make goalie-ing way harder.
