  • Improved consistency of blocking incidental stick contact if the stick collided with body geo first
  • Improved pickup solve consistency
  • Players will no longer drop their sticks
  • Improvements to AI goalie decision making when playing the puck out of their net. Mostly impacts goalies that were too aggressive

  • Thanks for once again ignoring the community, you guys absolutely ruined skating once again, what's the point of RPM tech if it's gonna feel like 18 again, absolutely pointless.
  • The best thing about NHL 19 was the skating. Massive improvement. You've slowly broken it down and tried your hardest to make it suck again like in NHL 18 all the previous NHLs. Just give us beta NHL 19 skating back...that was the most fun I've ever had playing a sports game...it's amazing how out of touch you guys are

    I’m so confused on why the cpu’s are stuck on superstar mode when the other team quits in the middle of a drop in. The “ice tilt” or (momentum) swings are horrible and blatantly noticeable when every scrub gets 2 goals on them in a drop the whole team quits and the 2 that don’t get a huge momentum swing and end up scoring on every shot and getting every loss puck battle. Passing is horrible once again, you make a forward pass to your teammate and if there’s anyone within 5 feet not even looking in your direction they intercept the puck. On top of that the skating sucks again which was the only thing that was good in the game in the first place. How do you consistently still put out garbage and get away with it. Pencil me in for not buying this garbage next year.

  • Please fix skating. NHL 18 skating now feels better than this game. last patch of the beta skating was where it needs to be at. I dont even play NHL unless im playing LG. Game is not fun anymore.
    Just an NHL youtuber trying to connect with NHL gamers!

    Hey, how about making skating decent again? You baited everyone by actually having good skating in the beta for once since the move to xb1/ps4, but then you felt the need to revert it back to NHL 18 skating. No one is happy about this.

    could u touch base on missing buttons in auction house and position lock vs cpu
  • Why does 90+ speed skaters get caught on beeakaways by slower d-men? And why is it so hard to score on breakaway? There are 3 simple ways to score and its almost the only way to score. Everyone knows the score tricks and therefore every game is the same with both players attempting to score the same way. Gets a little boring. By the time i complete the 3 games for the daily missions i am already bored. this game doesn't hold my interest. I bought this game because MLB the Show was awful this year. This game is flat out boring.

    cmon breakaway are way better in this nhl..

    for so many years, every breakaway was a goal..

    now you can hope to see a save from your goalie..

    don't change that ea.
  • I'm not sure why you guys keep removing small things like dropping sticks. It's kind of like the net coming off. They weren't horrible things that needed to be removed. Again, small things. I feel the cpu is too strong. Especially in EASHL, They really should be placeholders for actual players, to give teams an incentive to go out at get a human defenceman or forward. Have the cpu in position but not so aggressive

    • Players will no longer drop their sticks
    Why? I it was realistic. I can't believe someone could postulate for this change.
  • Lol, couldn't even lift stick today even well placed without getting a pen. This game is getting more and more ridiculous. Can't even play D without poke checking the hell out of the other player... So back to NHL 99 with north south arcade style game with only bodycheck to get the puck lol..... WOW
  • Btw, the game was absolutely fine when it released...
  • Bring everything back, guys, tuner 1.02 is a mistake.
  • This was the best NHL by far when it came out and after EA started adding "tuners" it's fallen to the level of 18. I am so disappointed I will definitely be getting a refund until EA wakes up and starts actually listening to the community, then maybe I will reconsider.

    Why you changed Faceoffs?
    There is nothing about it here.
  • Who feeds these worthless change ideas? You have a decent game say screw the people who buy your games just like EA does for every game they release and continue to detune the game. Lets be honest not a single tuner has benefited the game in any way.

    I knew it. Against my better judgement, I bought NHL 19 on launch day after having play the BETA, which was by far the best hockey experience I've had in years. Finally had time to play a few games the other night, and of course...you guys completely changed the skatting, which made the BETA so good.

    So, please...I beg you. Stop releasing tuners ! Q

    Quit messing things up, and use that time to add things most of us have been asking for years, like roster sharing. Considering how painful it seems to be for your team to release frequent (and accurate) roster updates, the fact that this isn't in yet is just unbelievable.

    I'm really trying to keep my cool, but I'm one of the lucky few that gets to play alot.... So let me ask the very obvious questions. why the hell hasn't the very constant dressing room error which causes atleast one to three players to disconnect from world of chel lobbies been fixed yet?

    Year after year this company realeases games that are incomplete, broken and honestly just poor quality. What ever happened to releasing a polished, high quality product? As a person with 20 years retail experience I would not recommend your product to customers based on the sheer expectancy of a return.
