Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Just warning for anyone that is planning to buy the EA Season Ticket for HUT cards

- You get ONE pack a WEEK on Tuesday.

- If you do not open the pack on Tuesday, it will be gone on Wednesday.

- The cards can NOT be traded or sold.


I found this out after buying the Season Ticket and contacting EA via Live Chat. Wow. :picard:

Anyone else have all the HUT tips show up for them again even after saying "Don't show again"? I had that happen tonight. Kinda odd...Anyway, here's my HUT team

Williams - Gretzky - Brown
Raymond - Little - Burrows
Lapierre - Eller - Zubrus
Thornton - Johansson - Kopecky

Edler - Michalek
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Ballard - Salo

Brodeur
Auld

My team is starting to come together...I'd like a better second line center ( Kesler ) and then move Little to the wing and put Raymond on the third or forth line.

I have a Erik Cole card as well, but I'm not sure what I want to do with him yet. He'd be a sweet second line guy though...

I would put Cole on the 2nd line and scratch Raymond. Cole - Little - Burrows sounds like a sexy line. Here's my team after I got my SC Edition packs:

Horton - Gretzky - Williams
Ladd © - Filpulla - Boedker
Ponikarovsky - Stoll (A) - Brouwer
McGinn - Stepan - Nolan

Goligoski - Letang
Gleason - Carlson
Orpik - Volchenkov

Bernier
Clemmensen

And if you can I'm contemplating wether to try and sell Gretzky for 150-200K pucks or not.

I don't try to spend a lot of money on HUT. I might only get 2-3 PSN cards this year.

I took your advice and put Cole on the second line in place of Raymond.

You've got a pretty solid team yourself. I'd love to get Letang with Elder as my top pair

Edit: IDK if you can sell Gretzky or not, since we got him in the SC packs...

I don't mind spending some money on HUT. Most of the points I've used on it were left overs I had no other plans for.

Plus, I'm really not that good at the game yet, so this is a lot faster for me then playing on Superstar and Online and getting my ass kicked over and over

I'll definetly keep Gretzky if I can't sell him but if I can, I'll look into selling him for around what I thought he would go at.

Just bought the game yesterday.

- It is damn near impossible to score on cross creases anymore, good or bad thing?!
- Getting it out of my own zone has become pretty difficult
- Pivoting is really hard and takes a while but the computers do it with ease
- Goalies always make amazing saves, they need to tune that
- Pro in NHL13 feels like allstar/superstar in NHL12
- I love how you can snipe it but it's not easy
- Lose the puck so easily while skating, no more dipsy doodling their whole team

Overall, it's VERY different from NHL12. I'm not used to it yet but it's a good kind of different I guess

o ya, Mason Raymond and David Booth are superb in this game because of their skating prowess.. Raymond Kesler Booth line is amazing

You wont be able to sell Gretzky. Any card you have gotten for free you cannot trade or auction. I bought zajac for cheap ( around 1500pucks) and turned around and sold him again for 3000. I guess kinda like flipping a house lol gotta catch auctions at the right time. The app is doing wonders for me.

Yeah, well, EA completely screwed me over on Season Ticket last year, too. It stopped recognizing that I had Season Ticket in January, took them 6 weeks of giving me the runaround to fix it, they never got me my 2 missing packs (January and February, not that I really played HUT, but hey, I payed for it), credited my account with an additional year of Season Ticket (+2 months for not having it for 6 weeks + the 2 missing packs), then "corrected it" in August so it expired in September 2012 instead of the agreed upon May 2013.

If EA didn't send me a copy of NHL 13 free of charge, I would've been seriously pissed ... Since they did, I don't really care enough to make a formal complaint, but I'll never buy Season Ticket again, that's for sure.

I know for a fact that the app sucks and is completely useless, as for controlling your team on the computer, it is possible that you might be able to do that, but unlikely.

From what I am aware of - there is no way to control your team online.

Thanks guys. Even though the app is horrible, I don't understand why they release a game worldwide and only release the app in Canada.

Yeah - Schneider did the same thing to me last night.

I always scored on a beauty cross crease pass, but the difference, was I aimed for top corner.

Hi i just started playing HUT. I have a free starter pack.... played about 7 games.. Whats the best way to get EA pucks without paying for them. I've been getting like 500-750 ea pucks per game. Just wondering if there's a better way to get pucks..

I want to be able top buy some gold packs, but i find the contracts will end and ill have to waste Ea pucks* and buy a bronze or silver pack to get contracts.. any suggestions appreciated

^Play the single player tournament cause after playing those four games you'll have 2000 pucks from the games plus the extra 1000 puck reward for beating it or more?

Love this game.

But I can't stand how they can hit you from behind you and toss you that well when you're on a rush.. Infuriates me.

Also makes me angry how often you get hit after taking a shot.

Might just be the tuner pack?

By way of simulation - In 37 games so far in his 1st AHL season he has 16 goals and 12 assists. All while being 68 overall and on the 2nd line.

I let him develop in the junior + AHL for 3-4 years before putting him straight to my NHL 2nd line. He's also playing with Galchenyuk and Yakupov, so maybe that's why he's racking up goals.

Money shot : Come in from the right side on a breakaway, cut in front with a back hand and nearly every single time, the goalie won't kick his pad out to try and make the save so the puck just rolls right in.

(Only works if your controlled player is right handed)
