GAMEPLAY

Increased attribute effect range to create more player separation.

Increased range of attribute effects for goalies so that the weaker goalies are further separated from the best ones.

Increased goalies ability to save slower low shots and passes towards the net.

Increased referee strictness when teams were already shorthanded so that penalties no longer go uncalled.

Increased pokecheck success when in proper positions.

Increased penalties from stick lift at wrong angles.

Removed the effect protecting the puck has in resistance to being hit (either with protect puck or holding the puck out away from your opponent). Note: Being in a controlled glide with full balance and/or limiting the relative speed of the hit will still be advantageous over skating, performing an action or higher relative speed hits when trying to stay in control.

Addressed issue where players would occasionally stay in the penalty box for the rest of the game after the end of their penalty Hut 16 coins buy.

Addressed issue where players would not line up correctly when using the aggressive faceoff style during an offensive zone faceoff.
