I give up
Every year I play, I play,and I play the nhl series, a piece of my soul is tainted. Honestly, the last fun game for me was nhl 16 before the tuners sets. I regret to inform you(EA) have failed many long term fans. The game used to be based on creativity with passes and being able to adapt to different play styles, but you have been wrongly led to believe that the game would feel more enjoyable as a realistic nhl playoff simulation. I currently have tested the games limits, talked to different players and have come up with a conclusion, the game is going to continue to cater to people who want to throw turds on net, trap, sticklift through bodies, and check when beat on a play. Thank you for producing quality games on xbox360/ps3, it allowed me to enjoy hockey on a whole other level and as a sport. After this year of NHL 19 is done, I plan to discontinue playing this game. I would not even play it for free even if given the chance because I know that a patch/ tuner will ruin the game.
