For over 15 years, there has been a wonderful computer game NHL for hockey fans. This game is not very difficult to play, so it has won the hearts of many. But some of the fans of this simulator end up wanting to try their hand at playing against other users. How do you play NHL online?
Test your internet speed. The minimum speed required for the game to run normally is 512 kbps. If the Internet speed is significantly slower, then you will not be able to enjoy the game. If the speed is slightly less than the declared 512 kbps, then it is possible to play it. It is wise to start the game if your internet speed is at least 400-450 kbps. Where can I test my connection speed? There are special sites that are designed for this. For example, testinterntet.ru, or you yourself can rummage through the search engines and find a site to your taste.
Find your IP address. You can enter a request to find your own IP in a search engine, or you can simply go to the site 2ip.ru, where the IP address of your computer will be determined automatically. If you play through your opponent, then he will need to go through the same procedure, although he may already already know his IP address.
Find an opponent. You only need one opponent to play online. It can be someone you know with whom you agreed in advance or a complete stranger that you find on hockey forums. There are also entire tournaments where you can take part. However, if you are not a very experienced player, then you better not play there. Moreover, often the game at such tournaments goes not only for sports excitement, but for voices or something else. In addition, do not expect that someone will immediately react to your application on the forum. So, if you want to play right this minute, then you better call a friend and invite him to fight. Otherwise, wait for a response on the forum no earlier than in a few hours, and possibly only the next day.
Create a connection. To do this, go first to the "Main Menu", then to the "Game Modes". Next, click on "Play over the network". In the IP address field, enter your own IP address. Your counterpart must also enter your IP address and connect to the server.
