60 posts EA Staff (retired)
Hey everyone,

Tonight at 2 AM PT/5 AM ET, Patch 1.55 and Tuner 1.04 will be going live in NHL 19. For notes on Patch 1.55, click here.

Tuner 1.04 is based off of the latest tuner for online play with a few more updates based on feedback we've received.

All Online Modes will be using tuner 1.04.

  • Turned down the top-level ability for speed, acceleration and agility when backskating with the puck
    • Overall, this will help address the issues we have seen the community raise regarding backskating with the puck being overpowered, especially when entering the offensive zone.
    • This value is in between what the penalties were for backskating with the puck in previous NHL titles and what they were with no penalties. The changes will be subtle, but should help prevent the effectiveness of backskating with the puck.
    • Backskating without the puck will be unaffected by these changes.
  • Added improvements to faceoff tuning to fix potential rare edge cases that were being reported around faceoff counters not working reliably at times
  • Fix for an issue introduced in tuner 1.02 regarding AI penalty frequency in offline modes. Penalties from the AI offline using this tuner will now be the same as they are in tuners 1.00 and 1.01
