I have had this game since Dec 26th and currently have a 9-2 record but am about 10-150 on faceoffs.

I have no idea how to win them, i used to be good by flicking the stick back but it's more complexed now it seems.

Anybody have any help on this ? I did some online searches but it was mostly bad advice i found.

You just need to learn the counters to whatever grip your opponent is using and move the stick when the ref moves his feet.

So make sure you pull back when you see the Ref moving his hands that's half the battle,

You need to know the different grips, you can win it just by flicking back but it's not as strong as someone using the forehand grip.

To use a grip just push the stick to the left or right before pulling back,

Just played as Boston vs Buffalo, won the game 5-1 and went 16-3 on the faceoffs !

Simple and easy advice and it helped. Thanks sir ! ( I always held it to the right then pull back when he drops it )

I had the same problem Ari. You have to move the R3 joystick completely to the left or right (Forehand/Backhand). after that you pull down without centering the joystick. Personally, I prefer using the backhand to win the draw

Same thing happened to me.

I win 90% of my faceoffs by going to my backhand and flicking the joystick up.

Drives me crazy when people glitch it and make you freeze on the draw. They should waive people out of the for if they keep pulling the trigger

They should kick players out of the circle and penalize them for consecutive faceoff violations.

A good counter to this is forehand and up on the right stick.
