So I don't know what to make of it. There MUST be a logical answer, since we're dealing with computer code, but I can't figure out what it is.

    My best guess is that maybe there's a heavy possession penalty rather than an outright illegal formation penalty? Herdos screenshots would seem to counter that, but I suspect the formations shown weren't the ones played the entire match - 49% seems very high with 1 midfielder vs 3 and equal level teams ..

    I don't know. The devs won't give us a direct answer on this, so we'll just have to keep an eye on it and see if we get more information or if someone comes up with a plausible answer.

    Oh, btw, if I was a 'smart arse' or if I was 'a hypocrite about personal insults', I sure don't see where. Maybe when you dish it out you start seeing your own medicine where there isn't any. *shrug*. I certainly could respond in kind, and it would be crystal clear that I meant personal insult, but frankly my curiousity about this issue has the best of me and I'd rather not have the thread locked just yet.
    Those screens are 100% legit and i never changed the formation at all. I always play wide players against narrow teams and it works well. Its not a heavy possession penalty either as i had 49% all game. Im thinking that maybe playing a defender in goals doesnt incur the 80/20 penalty that playing a striker does? other than that my "supreme" knowledge (lol) is stumped.

    This is not an example of the game engine sucking
    Indeed, I have watched a GK get red carded and the replacement come in and save the penalty. I have seen 'Pool do this recently i think. But I have also seen an outfield player donning the gloves and making the penalty save, so it does happen in RL.

    But you have to admit, it is a rarity. For the game engine to simulate this properly, there should be more goals when an outfield player is playing GK. It is NOT an easy position to play and takes a different mentality, and positioning is one of the most important qualities.
    As a GK in ice-hockey, I am fully aware of this.
