Arena Anouncer

Why is there so many players not announced? Buchnevich, Werenski, Panerin list goes on. Goal scored by # 89 assisted by number 9 and #8. What a joke. Really EA!? This is what you charge us 64$ for? Wow S.M.H

  • They prob bring him in every 5 years to record the new names.

    I'm not a negative person but things are getting a little ridiculous.

    I'm guessing adding the Golden Knights, Mascots and Expansion Draft mode was very difficult for EA... which is why everything else is pretty much NHL 17.
  • This is what happens when you limit yourself to one year of development time for a video game. One year is in no way enough time to develop any kind of video game.

    Exactly you nailed it, what EA should do i release a game every two years, so they do have enough time to make a descent game. It's the same game every year, all they can do is patch few things up and update the rosters. What is the issue?
  • Greed. They know they can make money selling it new every year so they don't have reason to stop.

    Expansion Draft doesn't use updated rosters. Adding one team and arena is not time consuming.

    If this is someone they bring in every "5 years", shouldn't they just have an employee do the PA announcer every year then? It's not like the guy sounds great. He just sounds like an average joe. If you wanted someone to truly stand out and if it meant that much to them (it doesn't, but it should along with jerseys being accurate), there are thousands of voice artists looking for opportunities. Wes Johnson (DC Area and Capitals PA) does a ton of commercials on the radio here for even small businesses or events. I think you could find someone that would be willing to do it every year for a major video game title.
  • Indeed
  • True True ... Anyone can do the Arena Announcer really. As far as adding Vegas.. adding the actual team prob wasn't a big job.. but adding the whole Expansion Draft feature and coding prob took some time. Not 100% sure.

  • Yeah and once again Plekanec Is not Pavel, but Tomáš (Thomas)
    I keep asking for the fix every year from NHL 11, so why not this year right :neutral:
