NHL 20 Patch Details April 3rd

Check out our April 3rd patch details here.

Everyone quits now in EASHL 3v3 (drop-ins)

I tried to play EASHL 3v3 dropins earlier (only because there wasn't enough people online to play 6v6) and almost every game didn't even get past the first period. As soon as there's a penalty (and therefore a penalty shot), everyone quits. I played 9 or 10 games (tried to anyway) and only 2 of them went to completion. I realize this sort of thing happens in drop-ins but 8 out of 10 games seems more than just drop-in luck. It's probably because of the stupid penalty shot thing.

    Probably more to do with the quality of offense, the offense I've seen in dropin 3's is just horrendous. Chasing in circles, turnovers galore, can't win faceoffs, force cross crease, they can't even get in the zone for crying out loud. Anyone of these things for a period and I'm gone every time, sometimes I can't even go a period.

    I'm not even talking beginners, that I understand, I'm talking players that play a lot and still are just awful, I just don't get it. How is it you play hours a day and only muster 1-2 shots a game and chase the puck every where like a 6 and under T-Ball team? Why do you try a cross crease when no one is even there?

    Don't even get me started on the double dark jersey selection.

  • Feel you. Someone on PS4 invited me to their club so I "tried out" for them and I found that the damn owner of the club still uses classic controls. I mean really? He literally doesn't know how to deke with the right stick. Not loose puck dekes.. just basic movements of the puck to the backhand and whatnot. He had no idea how to do these things. He was just so so bad and this dude had been playing for years. Did i mention that he had no hockey sense at all and thought that since he picked the sniper build that meant he could score with wristers from the blueline OFF THE RUSH? Needless to say, I quit the club after two games.

    Joined a different club before that fiasco and the owner of that dude saud he wasn't able to play up and down. He could only play with the "true broadcast camera" even though every hockey game ever has been defaulted to up and down since PlayStation came out. Of course this severely limited his ability to be a good player.

    It's just frustrating how bad people are at this game even though they've played for years. If anyone has a decent PS4 club... please... please invite me lol. PSN: DSANT21

    I would invite you, but 18 was not worth considering a purchase.

    To everyone else, we told you so. EASHL 3v3 sounds like a good idea on paper, but it honestly attracts the worst players.

    Every goal coming off a breakaway? Check.

    Defense boils down (for bad players) to chasing people to try body checking them? Check.

    Wide open ice, yet people find ways to miss passes by a mile and create 1000 icing calls a game? Check.

    3v3 EASHL, the home of 0 hockey IQ little Timmy
  • 3s requires more hockey IQ IMO, and removes the bots from the equation. Thats why people back out. They dont have the bots backing them up when they make their mistakes and the other teams capitalize.
    You must unlearn what you have learned!
  • 3v3 in club is much better. Maybe they should just remove it from drop-ins. There aren't enough drop-in players anyway so it would be better to not split them up into two groups. Just offer 6s for drop-ins.

    Part of me agrees with that, but you can't fix bad, these players could have a legend from the word go and still have the same bad habits. Again, I'm not at all picking on beginners, we've all been there and at least most of them try, it's these players who are online all day playing and couldn't score if there was no goalie at the other end or couldn't win a faceoff if there was no opposing center, those are the players that kill it for me.
  • @Santini3 I thought you were going to buy me a ps4 and year of live so we could play again ;)

    Actually after NHL 13 disaster EASHL started dying off at NHL 14. NHL 12 and prior EASHL was booming beyond belief.

    Imagine NHL 13 without spiderman goalies. You actually end up with a very solid game. Remember that at launch (no patches or tuners) we had the best AI ever featured in the series for offense and defense. In addition, NHL 13 TPS actually made sense compared to the dumbed down versions of it that existed in later games. The biggest issue was that backskating mechanics were wonky, but everything else about the skating was great.

    So i dont think it is fair to call NHL 13 a disaster (pre patches and tuners anyways) , as 14 was the real disaster where the game broke in so many ways that players are still feeling the affects of in the latest games.

    And of course NHL 15 next gen being a shell of the game we loved didnt help either.
  • I enjoy this game more offline, I played 3 on 3 for a bit, but people just cheese the whole match. I had a game where dude was circling around my net, waiting to pass to someone in the slot, and was succeeding every time, not matter what I did I couldn't stop him, so now when I play HUT, I jsut play the CPU, I'd rather get cheesed by the CPU than some clown online. But the control of the sliders offline is why I enjoy this game.
