Not sure if I like the new scoreboard. As a true broadcast player I'd prefer it to be at the top of the screen.

What's your thoughts?


Edit: Minor detail: why NJD but not TBL?

  • I think it looks great the way it is in "Always Up" orientation. It would be nice if they gave you more options to relocate it and change its size depending on preference.

    I like it. But I do have concerns with screen space. I play EASHL D almost exclusively and I wonder how much visibility I will have when the puck is down low behind the goal lines. I play on overhead camera so I worry I might not be able to see my whole player or possibly the blue line in those situations.

    Hoping there's some customized scoreboard overlay options.

    I do like the change though. Scoreboard in the corner got in the way often.
  • An option would be nice, but this is better overall. LD suffered in the offensive zone with to the current placement whenever play was in the top left corner.

    Absolutely agree.

    I like it too. Less clutter on screen. I also like how it isn't branded so EA has the liberty to do it as they want. Makes total sense and obviously $$$$ saved in that regard. Wonder if that money will be used for authentic goal horns this year? For you offline guys, sure hope it does.

    Up top it can be annoying for your offense and on the bottom can be annoying for your D. I play D so I would prefer it up top. And in hockey you usually look up for the clock and score, so my reflex would be to have it up top.

    Seriously, not giving us the choice to put it where we want would be such a disappointment, and an oversight, imo.
  • The TBL being "TB" and NJD still being NJD thing is bothering me now LOL
  • Another note - can we get a SOG counter on the scoreboard overlay?

    I too play True Broadcast (full 20 minute periods), and I'm in your camp here with being more than a little concerned with how much of the ice and gameplay the overlay is going to coverup.

    Also, I hope they moved things like the promotional nights and upcoming games overlays from the top of the screen, because they always covered up the forward and defensive line boxes, which inhibited you from seeing the energy of each line.
  • I love the picture of the player who scores.. would like to see total goals though. As an always up player, I like it on the bottom (finally) although I hope there are options for those who like it at the top.

    Agree on the SOG totals.. time to have that visible too.

    I hope they at least give us the option to keep the scoreboard on the top of the screen like now. Having it at the bottom looks awful. It's not just for the game....there is a reason why EVERY major sport broadcasts has scoreboard at the top of the screen too.

    I'm not a fan of that new score bug at all and will be a tad disapointed if that creeps into actual TV broadcasts.

    as for the TB and not TBL; it's usually about licensing or how the League/Team want to be stylized. I think their preference would be to always be the logo but that can be confussing for those that don't follow the league so they use a combo of both.

  • The bring new presentaion overlay looks good...if:
    1. Add opacity level
    2. At the main menu I can set my background color. Boston is yellow I want to have this color on the background.

    Opacity level is a great idea.

    As for the colors, from what I can see they are colored like the team. ANA is orange, TB is blue, NJD and OTT is red. Leads me to believe your BOS will be yellow.

    Yes it will if not I will not buy this "purple" color game :)
    The main menu backround color is black from nhl2007. Still black only. It is not so hard for programmers do it your own choice of type color too. If not, gameplay pause menu could be with the same colour as your team favorite, I hope.
  • Another note - can we get a SOG counter on the scoreboard overlay?

    Yes it is the great idea too. Why scoreboard is not more complex? There is so much space on both sides left with this a "new type" of scoreboard present. S as SOG counter, H as Hit counter under him, P as Passes percent counter under him, on both sides at the empty space.

    I do qoute of my quote :)
    Each hockey player on the bench hear this 3 warning: if you will not shoot more we can not do win tiger!
    If you will not do more hit we can not do a change the game hero! If you will not do a perfect pass to your teammates we can not do pressure more Wayne! :)

    How dare you quote yourself.... :tongue:

    Not quite sure what you are trying to say here. Are you pretending to be a coach and firing up your players in a game?

    I'm so happy they're trying something different. I think it looks great and a change in the presentation should feel refreshing. I'm hoping we get a opacity level and some more details though - SOG would be a main one!
  • SOG is nice, but during the playoffs how about what the series is at? 1-0 1-1 3-0 3-3? its minor but its authentic to real broadcast
