NHL 13: Target’s Optimized Builds

Written By: TargetAudience18

 

For those of you that want to see my examples of player builds when they are optimized, I have decided to go through each build and provide one. All the builds are based on playing with human goalies and a Legend 3 player. I have added a bonus build at the end that I use for computer goalies!

  1. c.       Two-Way Forward

 

This is one of only two builds I would use for centre (the other being grinder). If you do use it as a centre, remove the +3 from agility and put a +5 on faceoffs. Then, remove attributes from shot blocking and body checking until you have enough to max it out to 92.

  1. e.      Grinder

 

As mentioned earlier, this is the only other build I would use for centre. If you do choose the grinder for your centre I would suggest to remove a +5 from offensive awareness, agility or endurance (depending on what you prefer) and putting a +5 on faceoffs. Then remove attributes from body checking until your faceoffs are maxed out at 92.

A couple notes about his build:

 

I am a right winger and because if this, if my centreman takes a penalty I will be forced to take the faceoffs. I find having that boost in faceoffs to be tremendously beneficial. If you are left wing or just don’t care about the faceoffs as a winger, then don’t put anything in faceoffs. Instead, put the rest of your points into shot blocking. If you need to, remove some body checking attributes to max out the shot blocking category.

 

Anyway guys, thanks for checking out this guide. I hope that you are able to find value in it and learn a couple of tricks that will really help you out in building your players.
