  • 6 weeks and still no fix? Good thing Red Dead Redemption comes out tomorrow.
  • No more legends in playnow mode !!
  • I think you need to add a quick chat/emoji option to versus games similar to golf clash. You could add it between whistles. Things like nice shot good game or whatever
  • EA needs to fix the AI defence automatically crashing into the boards when chasing a loose puck in their zone when no ones around. Happens way too often.
  • Still no new goalie equipment? :(
  • So goalies get buffed even more. Great!

    Yay, I guess I wasn’t totally crazy thinking something was off with incidental contacts from behind.
  • So no edit player for season mode? Can’t add in something that’s been in games since forever. What a joke.

    go back to beta skating. it was perfect and just fantastic and now you made it as bad as nhl 18

    Edited to remove swearing. - EA_Cian
  • No legends in franchise?
  • The only Alternate new Jersey I found is from the Caps. Other are old and was in the game before. New Alternate Winnipeg is not in the game. Many others like usual are missing.
  • Can You Bring the new CCM equipment in please and Bring back winter classic :(
  • Didn’t fix the ability for 2 people to match team size in HUT?
  • dr errors still not fixed?
  • Thanks for the update. I’m not an avid gamer, as I’ve only played the offline NHL series and recently FIFA. In my opinion, the gameplay in NHL has improved drastically compared to 18. Everyone will [email protected] and moan about anything. What do they expect??? It’s a game. Not real life. There will always be a bug or glitch or a “computer type” feel to the game because.....It’s a game. Novel concept. Also, the gameplay in FIFA gets stale after awhile once you master the game. Same for NHL. At the end of the day, its only just a game. If you want the real thing, strap on some skates. As a former player, it’s as close to the real thing as a “game” can get.

    Wow. Just... wow.... that sucks.

    So happy RDR2 is out now. Chel can take a backseat or get out of this ride altogether.

    No, the problem is, this was going to be the best NHL on next gen to date after playing the beta. If they had kept that going. What we have now is 10 steps back and worse than 18...they put out a great beta, lured in all of the people that were done with their antics after last year. Only to make adjustments to the game for people that couldnt compete. Theres people complaining all over the forums. The skating feels as slow and clunky as last year(reminds me of NHL 13 when they introduced the debacle that is true performance skating), gone is the agility of starts stops and quick turns. Mite hockey players can stickhandle better than what you can on NHL 19. Its pretty sad that 09-12 were probably the most fun NHL games of all time, but that was when we had the least crap. You could defend the glitch goals and people that exploited them...now the scoring seems more random than ever. Im angry about it of course because after having an EASHL squad on next gen since 16, we are all so tired of this franchise bending us over, that we are disbanding the squad. What went from a fun experience for my buds and myself online, has turned into a grindfest/chore to get through the games. The fun is gone. Worst part is that most of us here complaining love hockey. Eat, sleep, breath it. But lets face it, unless someone steps up and gives EA competition, we are gonna get the same story every year.

    You're probably not a hardcore, year after year player. Nobody expects the game to be perfect. But, we may expect a good, complete product for our money.

    Every year EA makes us hungry with some slick advertising on the new NHL, you pay 60-70 bucks and what do we get?
    -An incomplete game. We have to wait 3 months for the tuning and patching. After that period, the game finally is playable. BUT, you'll have to experiment for another month with the gameplay sliders if you want to have a realistic offline vs CPU gamemode.
    -The smallest things are somehow not in the new game, like jerseys and some easy stat things. Very frustrating.
    -And so on and on.
  • So, the win horn (created) on custom teams isn’t fixed yet?!
  • I've been an avid CHEL player since '06 - loyal to the game year after year and dedicated to HUT as a top 250 player (o Valpy o on Xbox) for years. Yes - there are errors, mishaps and overall gaps within the game/series. The effort of continuous updates/patches shows the dedication that EA has to making this the best hockey game on the market - no one even dares trying to compete. If competition is the answer to raise the bar of meeting EVERYONE'S complaints/issues - so be it. In the mean time, EA... Keep working hard in trying to make the NHL series the best product it can be! There should not only be hate - but appreciation. I APPRECIATE the heck out of the effort put in this game and I will continue to burnout playing CHEL regardless of negative feedback.

    Thank you for listening and putting up with all users and thank you for effort, EA!
