NHL 20 Content Update October 25th


Check out our CHEL notes with our October Patch update here.

Thoughts on adding Player Traits?

Like soccer and basketball games, what are your thoughts on player traits to make players more identifiable?

Player traits like;
- goalie is prone to making dramatic saves (like Hasek)
- Player is more likely to bat in the puck midair (like Crosby)
- Player is prone to counter-checking incoming players (like Peter Forsberg)


Or even negative things that could effect AI like;
- player is likely to commit a major penalty
- Player is likely to commit instigating penalties during playoffs
- player is likely to avoid being checked
- Player is drastically less accurate shooting backhand then forehand


I just feel there really isn’t enough to distinguish one player from another. Just general stats that do not correctly portray the player or legend in the game

  • I greatly dislike the traits and stuff in EASHL now.

    No thanks.

    Just adding things that are out of the user's hands is not a great idea to me. Unless you are talking about Be a Pro or something then yea, a good idea. Since I don't play that mode and couldn't care less if it disappears it doesn't matter what goes into or out of it.

    Definite no no for online modes though.

    Perhaps your right, I only play offline except for World of Chel. But offline just seem like every player is alike
