FHM 6 Fighting adjusted ??

Has the fighting been adjusted to reflect real life numbers in this years version or is it being ignored like the last 5 versions ?

It was common to sim thru an entire year and team individual totals had "zero" to only one fight in an entire season. Also, the fighting attribute is confusing because its based on the willingness and the likes of Lucic were rated 10 or 11 throwing people off as many believe its they're fighting ability rating.

also... I'll keep my money until this *new* rivalry system is proven to become just that, then based on a bunch of minor penalties mimicking smoke and mirrors.

Actual 2018-19 fighting leaders:

Fighting leaders in 2019-20 from a recent test game:

And we've hardly "ignored" fighting. In fact, we've probably spent far more time trying to get it realistic than most other stats.

Of course, you're already aware of that, because you'd been on the test team until you had a tantrum and quit because you didn't like the first PIM totals you saw for Lucic (who had all of two fights last season) in FHM6. I'm not sure what your obsession with Lucic's fighting rating is, but you spent more time complaining about it last season than Lucic did fighting. Sorry, but there are other aspects to hockey besides fighting, and we're not going to neglect them so we can keep going back and changing the fighting system until it suits your personal preferences.
